Antrim 1844 is pleased to announce the arrival of Ruben Cambero as the new General Manager of Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel. Ruben’s goal is to delight Antrim’s guests and invite them to discover the pleasures of the fine art of living, or “art de vivre”, as a journey of awakening the senses with truly authentic, intimate and unique experiences. “Our property is the perfect place to turn any day into a lifetime memory.”

Ruben grew up in Spain in a well-respected hospitality family where he developed the passion and soul of the Innkeeper through life-long, hands-on experience. He brings remarkable flavor, as well as European roots and culture to his new venture with Antrim 1844 and the Smokehouse Restaurant. His parents currently run several gourmet restaurants, including Nina & Angelo and Michelin Starred, located on the Mediterranean Coast.

Happily married to Amaya, his high school sweetheart, Ruben is the proud father of two lovely children, Paula and Nicolas.

In 2002, after living in Sweden as part of an International Exchange program pursuing his bachelor in Business Administration, Ruben joined Hotel el Peregrino, his parents’ luxury boutique hotel, a subsidiary of the prestigious Relais & Château. As General Manager of hotel el Peregrino, he was responsible for managing daily property operations with an emphasis on memorable guest experiences.

“Moving from Spain to the United States is the adventure I always wanted to experience with my family, and I couldn’t have found a better place and a better team than Antrim’s. I found the true spirit of hospitality in Richard and Dort when I met them, and I immediately fell in love with the property.” 

Ruben’s passions include discovering new places and a love for fine wine and cuisine, pursuits that he shares with his children: “There is nothing more exciting than to observe children who love the new sensory-rich experiences of cuisine.”
