Our Team

Davina Bulot Owner & General Manager

Native from a hotel family background for several generations, the passions of travelling, tailor-made services and hotel business always found an echo in me! Hotel studies in Switzerland, numerous years of expatriation in Spain, USA and Italy gave me enough knowledge, experience and the ambition to create my company Himalaya 10 years ago.

I am an explorer in the soul, love the human contact, speak 4 languages, love more that all the overtaking in oneself and especially the team spirit, practices regularly sports at sea or mountains because I am thus a former climber reconverted into a young surfer.

"Communicating on extraordinary places in the world is for me a real nature. My idea of high end hotels? The promise of an intense and emotional experience, an invitation to dream. A journey in the summit!"

Claire Cibois Sales & Marketing Manager

I have always dreamed of travels around the world, so before starting my studies of foreign languages at University, I flew to West Africa for 1 month to discover Ivory Coast and Ghana.

I arrived in Paris at 20 to get my first job at Donatello and finished my graduation in English and German, by working. This specialist producer gave me the taste of tailored trips. I had developed this sense during 2 years at STI Voyages then at Beachcomber Tours during almost 8 years. All these experiences gave a great knowledge of the tourism industry through the tour operators and the offline and online travel agencies. These last years with the Mauritians made me love the luxury and charming properties and want to work for hospitality.

I support sustainability to have the less impact as possible on the environment and social issues, to use the local materials and to be aware of the products quality. In this goal, I support a project in Mali: a sustainable camp in Sirabougou village. I am proud to enter the Himalaya team and to be in charge of the promotion of Six Senses which are both close to these values.

Sports are also very important to me, I have practiced Capoeira for few years, tennis, running. Eager to learn, I love discover and practice new activities and live new adventures in France or abroad. My degree gave me the love of foreign languages and I am still learning new one to improve the human relations.

My dreams of travel have never leave me and I still have a packed bag to discover new places as often as I am able to.
