He later moved to the UK and then on to Russia, eventually rising to the positions of Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director at the Moscow Marriott Royal Aurora Hotel.

Thomas then swapped his chef’s whites for a suit and tie when he moved to Sochi, Russia and joined Capella Hotel Group as Executive Assistant Manager responsible for the pre-opening and set up of three luxury hotels.

 In 2014, he opened the five-star Han Yue Lou Hotel in Nanjing, China, as task force hotel manager under the same hotel group umbrella.

Thomas moved to Asia in 2015 for the pre-opening and opening of the five-star Vinpearl Ha Long Bay resort, an expansive new luxury property for the area. He then moved to Thailand and joined the Centara Hotel Group in Karon Beach as Resident Manager.

“We are delighted to welcome Thomas to AKARYN Hotel Group,” said the group’s Founder and Managing Director, Anchalika Kijkanakorn. “With his extensive international experience, passion for hospitality and attention to detail, I am confident that he will help elevate the guest experience at Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa and akyra Beach Club Phuket to new heights.”
