Thailand’s Akaryn Hotel Group to launch concepts in Indonesia, Vietnam
27 May, 2019
Akaryn Hotel Group, Thailand’s award-winning luxury boutique hotel specialist, is preparing to spread its wings and enter international markets for the first time, with the launch of its pioneering hospitality brands in Indonesia and Vietnam.
In the coming months, two of the group’s much-loved hotel concepts – Aleenta and akyra – will make their international debuts. Aleenta, the original barefoot luxury brand that first launched in Thailand in 2004, will be launched in Bali (nicknamed the Island of the Gods), and akyra, boutique brand, will arrive in Hoi An, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed port town in central Vietnam.
Aleenta Retreat Bali has a choice of restaurants, which will focus on fresh, organic ingredients, while the Pool Bar will serve refreshing drinks during the day and after dark.
“Aleenta was our first brand, and our pioneering resorts in Phuket and Hua Hin have become hugely popular among guests. Every Aleenta property is designed to reflect the timeless charm and character of its destination, featuring large living spaces and world-class facilities while also operating in harmony with the environment,” said Anchalika Kijkanakorn, founder and managing director, Akaryn Hotel Group.
“Aleenta Retreat Bali will be a fantastic addition to our portfolio; secluded, spiritual and sensual, this sublime sanctuary will allow guests to discover the true essence of the Island of the Gods,” she added.
Also opening its doors in 2019 will be akyra Hoi An, which has two restaurants and a pool bar, where all ages can discover delectable Vietnamese and international cuisine.
“With its peaceful and picturesque waterfront setting, halfway between the city and the sea, akyra Hoi An will allow visitors to discover everything this charming destination has to offer. Guests who have experienced akyra’s hotels and resorts in Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai will be familiar with the brand’s trend-setting style. We look forward to introducing guests to a new era of contemporary, cutting-edge hospitality in this idyllic location,” Kijkanakorn said.
Akaryn Hotel Group currently operates a collection of captivating boutique hotels and resorts across Thailand, including Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi, Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga, akyra Beach Club Phuket, akyra Manor Chiang Mai, akyra Thonglor Bangkok, and the most recent addition to its portfolio, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok.
The group will continue to introduce its luxurious and personalised style of Asian hospitality to even more destinations across the region in the months and years ahead.
