Thai Boutique Hotel Akyra Samui Hits Ground Running

Category: Hotels, Posted:26 Sep 2011 | 06:00 am

We received the following update from the team at Aleenta and Akyra Resorts in Bangkok, where the Thai based chain is currently undergoing a rapid expansion drive –
Upscale lifestyle resort, akyra Chura Samui, has registered an exceptional 90% occupancy rate since its opening just three months ago, outperforming island-wide occupancy rates of 61% .
The achievement is all the more pronounced given the data recently released by respected hospitality consultants C9 Hotelworks in their Samui Hotel Market Update, which stated that even the 61% occupancy figure was an improvement on last year.
The 61-room akyra Chura Samui, on the quiet northern tip of Chaweng Beach, is the first property managed by Akaryn Hospitality Management Services (AHMS) who announced their arrival in the resort/hotel management business after the success of their wholly owned Aleenta resorts in Hua Hin and Phuket.
AHMS Managing Director Anchalika Kijkanakorn said she was delighted that the resort opened to such high occupancy rates – although was in no doubt that new, well positioned properties could still do well on the island.
"Naturally we are thrilled visitors to the island are choosing to stay at our resort and we have been able to perform a lot better than the island as a whole, especially as we are only a few months old," said Ms Kijkanakorn.
"We have a strong track record through our luxury Aleenta brand and we have been able to leverage this and craft a new four-star lifestyle brand – akyra -which caters to everyone from young, free-spirited travellers to discerning tourists."
