Thailand’s leading boutique hospitality company, AHMS The Collection, officially launched its partnership with the Manor Group recently at a glittering dinner event at fashionable Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Bar in Singapore.
The partnership between the two innovative companies begins with the opening of Italics Restaurant in Bangkok on April 1, the first of an expected regional rollout of the Italian culinary concept showcasing proven provenance cuisine.
This will be followed on July 1 with the opening of akyra Manor Chiang Mai, a 30-all suite contemporary urban hotel located in the hippest district in town, Nimmanhaemin, known as the Artist Quarter of the city and which will also have an Italics restaurant on the ground floor.
Guests were treated to a star turn by Italics’ Michelin-starred chef, James Noble, who created an eight-course dinner, packed with originality, flavour and authenticity, showcasing what will be Thailand’s first proven provenance Italian dining concept.
Anchalika Kijkanakorn, award-winning AHMS’s Managing Director and Founder, said she was delighted to be launching the partnership in style as that was at the cornerstone of how the two companies operated.
“After meeting John Lim (head of Manor Group) for the first time I knew we would one day be working together. There was too much chemistry and we are both forward thinking, ambitious companies.
“That day has now arrived and we will launch these two projects this year and then after that who knows. These are very exciting times for AHMS The Collection and we are thrilled to be working with such as wonderfully creative partner in the Manor Group.”
Manor Group Chief Executive Officer John Lim said he was excited to be entering Thailand with such a strong partner as his group made its first foray into the hospitality.
“Thailand has a very strong and growing tourism industry and we are happy to now be a part of that and blend our abilities with the already well established reputation for excellence in luxury hospitality Anchalika and her team have and continue to pioneer.”
