GHM (General Hotels Management) is on a rapid expansion course with no less than nine new properties under development throughout the world.

Founded in 1992 by Amanresorts creator Adrian Zecha and Hans Jenni, the current GHM portfolio of 14 properties in nine countries will expand to 23, with new openings in the pipeline in Mexico, Oman, Greece, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Dubai, China and Bali over the next three years.

Commenting on the expansion, GHM’s Director and President, Hans Jenni said, “We choose only to get involved with properties where the owners truly share our vision and are willing to make the necessary commitment to work with us and create a stunning property that is the best of its kind in the destination it serves.”

Each GHM property has its own identity and unique elements, though all share the company’s core values of excellence in design, a strong ‘sense of place’ evident in the design details, and high standards of personalised service which create memorable experiences.

The new projects from GHM across the globe include:

The Yamu, Phuket, Thailand, a Philippe Starck design, is a 32-acre resort and villa development located on a private peninsula on Phuket’s scenic east coast, approximately 25 minutes from Phuket International Airport.
