Three years after joining GHM as executive assistant manager at The Chedi Muscat, Andy Kunz is trading the sands for a riverside perch in one of Thailands most compelling destinations.

Kunz succeeds Stefan Noll as general manager of the GHM property when Noll departs for cooler climes and a new position as hotel manager and head of task force with the pre-opening team at The Chedi Andermatt. Set to open in December, the Swiss development is one of two GHM debuts scheduled for this year.

Like The Chedi Muscat, The Chedi Chiang Mai trades on its setting and heritage to evoke a sense of destination and arrival at the property itself.

The 1913-built, former British consulate anchors the interior grounds of the 84-room riverside hotel, housing The Restaurant, Terrace Bar and Cigar Lounge, while teak, timber and rattan accents pay homage to the hotels situation in northern Thailand.

Each of the 52 rooms and 32 suites open on to balconies that overlook the gardens and the Mae Ping River.

Muscat and Chiang Mai couldnt be any more different as destinations, and the resorts cultivate two very different aesthetic traditions, but there are remarkable similarities to the atmosphere and ambience of each, said Kunz. These similarities are what set them apart as GHM hotels.

Swiss-born Kunz began his career in his home country, studying for a diploma at the prestigious hospitality school Ecole Htelire de Lausanne. After interning in Switzerland and St Barts, Kunz joined the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts Group. He has held leadership positions at properties in Jordan, Egypt, Palm Beach and Beverly Hills in the United States and Sydney in Australia.
