Akaryn Hotel Group, the pioneering Thai hospitality company with an appealing collection of luxury hotels and resorts around the Kingdom, has announced the appointment of Swiss native Thomas Singenberger as Hotel Manager at akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok, which is set to open in the first quarter of 2018.

The hotel is the closest boutique luxury accommodation on Soi 20 to Sukhumvit Road, which is often referred to as Bangkok's cosmopolitan artery, and the chosen address for a vast choice of world class restaurants, stylish cocktail bars, sophisticated spas and independent galleries, including Adler Subhashok Gallery, which is the Bangkok version of its Parisian counterpart and hosts exhibitions by big name international and Thai contemporary artists.

Bringing understated luxury and a new sense of style to Bangkok's most vibrant tourism zone, akyraSukhumvit Bangkok will present guests with an artistic aesthetic designed to inspire a lifestyle as much as a stay.

"As a new concept luxury urban retreat, akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok is all about creating an intimate atmosphere in the heart of one of Asia's most iconic cities," explains Thomas.
