Aaron Barnabas – Vibe Manager

Meet Aaron Barnabas, the Vibe Manager for Hard Rock Desaru Coast.

What is a Vibe Manager?

A VIBE manager, or rather  the Visionary Individual Behind Energy, has the task of curating the hotel atmosphere with lighting, music, decor, entertainment and surrounding memorabilia. They are the driving force behind Hard Rock’s unique events.

They are the go-to person for discovering and booking the best local music, the ins-and-outs of the scene, where to eat, drink and be merry… and so much more.

Aaron’s Insider Tips:

“Desaru is a peaceful town for a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can find great street food up till very late at night or past midnight. The best music scene is inside of the hotels and the beaches are great for surfing.”
