After dedicating her professional life to the rush of producing bespoke events and luxury weddings in Spain, in 2018 Patricia decided to leave all the city commodities behind and accept the challenge of leading the marketing and guest experience department of an amazing new concept hotel in Tulum, México: Copal Tulum Hotel.
Name: Patricia Sáez de Montagut
City you live in: Tulum
My favorite thing about Tulum is… the good and positive vibes of the people. Thanks to my job at Copal Tulum Hotel I get to know guests of all nationalities and with different concerns in life.
A typical day in my life includes… I wake up every day at 5:13 a.m. to do sports (swim, bike, run). I practice triathlon which demands a daily high intensity training program. I did my first 70.3 Ironman last September 2019 and continue preparing myself for challenges every year thanks to my team @giantplayadelcarmen.
After that I have to be at the hotel at 9 a.m. every morning and I get lost by my daily to-dos until late night, 8 or 9 p.m. During the weekends I try to enjoy the beach for a while. Thanks to new technologies I can still take care of things through my phone.
I was born in… Madrid, 1986.
I’m listening to… weekly recommendations via Spotify.
My Family… I live here in Mexico with my older sister, her husband and my two little princesses, my nephews. In Madrid I have my parents, and my middle sister and her husband; they are newlyweds.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Pope Juan Pablo II.
One thing I cannot live without… sports every morning. I get used to giving my body a dose of serotonin and I’m kind of low if I cannot do my daily workout.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… I was a bit of a rebel so I always wanted to search for new and different things.
I’m inspired by… the unity and love of my family. I’m really impressed by how good my parents did with raising us all.
The one person who motivates me is… God.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… fake people and people who do wrong no matter what.
The perfect day would be… wake up, do sports, a nice day at the beach with my dog, a swim in the ocean, a Netflix series and a good bite at Kokoro Tulum Restaurant.
My first job… I worked as a scout since I was 16 until I graduated in PR & Marketing. After that I got my first job at an advertising company and haven’t stopped working since then.
My favorite escape… now that I live abroad, I love coming home to Madrid and driving to the country side.
My life… still planning.
I’m currently working on… marketing, PR & guest experience department at Copal Tulum Hotel.
My Worst Habit… that I am really impatient, which can be turned into something positive because I can’t have things done by tomorrow.
My Biggest Dream… be the chief of my time.
Favorite Quote… You’re not late. You’re not early. You’re just on time.
