Kylie Fernandes

Kylie Fernandes - Hawkes Bay Accommodation Sector Group Co-Chairperson


After a stint as a waitress in a hotel restaurant during the university break, Kylie fell in love with the industry at 18 years of age and has been working in hospitality ever since.

Kylie spent many years working in large 4 & 5 star hotels in both New Zealand and Australia and moved to Napier 10 years ago to be closer to family. Following a small break to devote time to being a stay at home mum, Kylie returned to the workforce as the Property Manager of the Navigate Seaside Hotel.

Kylie is passionate about creating a unique experience for every guest and excited to be part of the bustling atmosphere of the hospitality industry where every day brings its own challenges and opportunities.

Married to a chef and mother of one, Kylie spends her spare time trying new restaurants and has recently taken up paddle boarding with her son for some enforced relaxation.
