While lifestyle boutique brainchild's the world over try to find new brand names that start with the letter A, Thailand has a number of up and coming chains which are set to see growth not only here but regionally in Asia –
1.U HOTELS & RESORTS

2.ALEENTA/ AKYRA

Through the recently launched Akaryn management arm the two brands have firm expansion plans on the books to pursue outside contracts to fuel growth.
3.ATIVA
Long time Asian hotel guru Bill Black's start up which first came to life as Bed Management Company at the indie favorite Hotel de la Paix in Siem Reap and now has teams with Nadathur Hospitality to grow Ativa. SilQ Bangkok opened last year with new properties coming up in Vietnam, India and Laos.

A multi brand offering, with X2, Le Bayburi, Away and Case under the umbrella. X2 has been the expansion platform with properties in Pranburi, Koh Samui, Rayong and Koh Kood, the brand got into mixed use residential products in 2009 and this looks to be fueling growth together with recently announced regional management contracts back of its wide portfolio coverage.
5.TUNEHOTELS.COM
