Well, i you call it business, I consider it more o a love afair. Ever since I returned rom 10 years with GE Capital in the US and Europe to visit the beach house I spent summer holidays growing up in, in Pranburi. Wonderul memories o that continue to this day, as this was the rst step we took in building AHMS – a business ofering of the beaten track experiences that were able to honestly and wholeheartedly provide guests a true insight into an authentic Tai way o living, with a ew smatterings o what I call bareoot luxury thrown in or good measure. Over 10 years on, Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi continues to ofer down-to-earth, creative and cutting experiences, and its latest Carbon Free Cooking initiative can be read about more on page 9. During this time we have expanded. Our concept o ofering road less travelled destinations, combining them with gourmet and wellness experiences has caught on. We opened Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga eight years ago now and are in the midst o growing it – beginning with adding choices or amilies with young children, like me, adding a Children’s Club, opening Te Edge restaurant, launching Ayurah Wellness Centre and introducing a concept o beach clubbing or grownups. We will also expand the resort with 34 more abulous villas next year. Please read more on page 8. Here’s wishing you all the very best or the estive season – and happy reading! Happy New Year.
