Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort has appointed Thomas Boehringer as General Manager at the luxury resort in the Gulf of Thailand, effective June 1, 2023. The Swiss national is tasked with managing the operations of the 106-key property and focussing on elevating guests’ experiences and a newly launched dining concept.
Boehringer’s appointment brings extensive luxury hospitality knowledge and experience to the beachfront resort that he gained at some of the most exclusive resorts in the Maldives prior to relocating to Thailand, including Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas and the 20-key Naladhu Private Island Maldives retreat.
A passionate hotelier, Boehringer’s hospitality career started in food and beverage service at Einstein Gourmet, a Michelin-starred restaurant in St. Gallen, Switzerland, followed by a managerial appointment at the Paradise Koh Yao Resort boutique hotel in Thailand where he oversaw the optimisation of productivity, quality of operations and guest satisfaction. In 2017, he opened and managed the deluxe TreeHouse Villas resort on Thailand’s Yao Noi island paradise as Resort Manager.
Boehringer is an alumnus of EHL Hospitality Business School in Switzerland, formerly known as École hôtelière de Lausanne, and graduated with an honours degree in Science of Hospitality Management. “I am honoured by the confidence and trust Anantara Hotels Resorts & Spas have put in me and I look forward to taking the reins at Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort to deliver the brand’s legacy of service excellence to our guests from around the world”, said Boehringer. “With exciting new dining experiences to explore this summer travel season, including the first outpost of Anantara’s innovative and immersive Latin-American dining experience, Guilty, the resort is ready to cater even better to our returning and new guests.”
