Taking inspiration from the pineapple as the symbol for hospitality and luxury, and red the colour of energy and creativity, The Red Pineapple was founded by Liv Gussing Burgess, an experienced hotelier and consultant in luxury hospitality.
Liv launched her consulting business in London in 2011. Working with clients like Six Senses and Beaverbrook, she has helped individuals build and operate luxury resorts and spas in Europe and the Middle East.
Prior to this, Liv spent 14 years with Amanresorts, under Adrian Zecha. Liv served 7 years as General Manager at the acclaimed Amandari in Bali, earning the hotel numerous awards and top rankings worldwide. She supported the expansion of the Aman brand through new resort openings in Asia, Africa and the US.
Liv is passionate about the industry, travel and people. She is grounded by a deeply rooted empathy for others. She grew up between Switzerland, Sweden and East Africa and her strong cross-cultural influences inform her work and allow her to understand client needs and nuances across a range of different angles.
An Ivy League graduate from Cornell University’s prestigious Hotel School, Liv continues to devote time to Cornell University and has served on the Dean’s Advisory Board and led the Cornell Hotel Society, the 13,000-alumni organisation.
