DALLAS - The iconic Hilton Anatole recently announced its appointment of Ta'alolo Puni Pau as the new Director of Recreation for the 1,606 room hotel located in the Dallas Design District. An accomplished hospitality professional with more than ten years of industry experience, Puni Pau rejoins the Hilton Worldwide family from Disney's acclaimed Aulani Resort and Spa on the island of Oahu where he most recently served as Recreation Manager, leading the service and operations of the hotel's award-winning aquatic facilities. In this new role, Ta'alolo will oversee the opening and operations of the Anatole's heavily anticipated Jade Waters, an upscale resort-style pool complex opening this summer.

"We are excited about the unique expertise and energy Ta'alolo brings to the Hilton Anatole," said Harold Rapoza, general manager, Hilton Anatole.
