Akaryn Hotel Group to Triple Number of akyra Hotels by 2022

Akaryn Hotel Group, a Thailand-based boutique hotel operator, has unveiled plans to significantly expand its akyra brand, including the first akyra hotels outside Thailand.

 There are currently four akyra hotels in operation in Thailand: akyra Manor Chiang Mai, akyra Beach Club Phuket, akyra Thonglor Bangkok, and the most recent addition to the collection, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok.

At a press conference held in Bangkok on Thursday, Anchalika Kijkanakorn (pictured), Managing Director and Founder of Akaryn Hotel Group, unveiled plans to triple the number of akyra hotels and resorts to twelve by 2022.

Agreements for new akyra properties are currently at different stages of negotiation but include hotels in the Malaysian Highlands, Hoi An in Vietnam and Bangkok’s Rattanakosin Island, while other projects are being considered in markets including Bali, Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

All new akyra hotels and resorts will retain the brand’s core philosophies, including sustainability, community interaction and environmental awareness. As an example of this, akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok became one of the first new hotels in Asia to launch without any single-use plastic in its rooms or F&B outlets.

While akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok and akyra Manor Chiang Mai are already single-use plastic free, the entire Akaryn Hotel Group has pledged to eliminate single-use plastics by Q2 2019.

The company is also a long-term partner of the Pure Blue Foundation, which supports marine projects including coral reef restoration and turtle conservation.

“akyra is a hotel concept that thrives on new opportunities and innovations, so it is highly appropriate that this outward-looking brand is now planning to broaden its horizons and venture into exciting new destinations,” said Anchalika Kijkanakorn.
