ASEAN Hotelworks currently operates boutique resorts and properties in Phuket and has a variety of new projects in various stages of development and negotiation. It is ASEAN Hotelworks’ stated mission that -once we have joined a project- to see it through. We do not believe in either over-extending ourselves or growing fast purely for the sake of it, and thus joining the legions of dysfunctional organisations. ASEAN Hotelworks aims to stay compact, manageable, and dedicated to what we do best.

ASEAN Hotelworks  continuously strives to offer the highest levels of quality accommodation in elegant, sometimes daringly contemporary surroundings, but always with a warm welcoming ambience. We aspire to pay extraordinary attention, and offer a superb service to our clients & guests. Always open to new ideas and receptive to input, we are in a continuous cycle of aiming to reinvent and improve ourselves 

ASEAN Hotelworks  was founded by European & Thai hoteliers with vision. Each with a long history working for renowned resorts and hotels, and driven by a passion to deliver premium hospitality.         
                                                                                                             
About the ASEAN Hotelworks  Management style:

ASEAN Hotelworks Conceptual skills
We place great importance on highly creative, yet useful, sensible and comfortable concept development that is sensitive to a specific location and incorporates local cultural and design elements. Subject to the level of budgetary constraints, we strive to avoid standard, off-the-rack generic designs and blunt imitations. Nevertheless, it must be said that nobody is an expert in each and every facet of design, and sometimes adaptations to existing designs are made. Every detail is thought through, scrutinized and critically analysed, ranging from amenities to service concepts to the ergonomic suitability of seating facilities. We are continuously weighing and redefining hospitality and leisure concepts trends. Thus, we are in a position to create the most appropriate product for each of our projects. This is then implemented by closely working with the General Manager of each property in adapting and implementing our policies and systems in harmony with the local environment.

ASEAN Hotelworks Hospitality-givers
People are absolutely paramount in the service industry, and without good hospitality-givers everything else is a disappointment too. We therefore put emphasis on, and commit time, effort and resources to, choosing the right people. In our long experience of working in Thailand, we have gathered a database containing a wealth of the crème-de-la-crème of professionals in each and every discipline required in the various pre-opening and operational phases. All experts in their own right, once these team players are on board, ideas such as employee development and training, employee recognition, cross training, performance related pay, empowerment are now conventional wisdom and play a big part in our business. In addition to the above we also instill strong market orientation and financial discipline amongst all of our team-members as well as a strong commitment through loyalty and a feeling of belonging and ownership. 

ASEAN Hotelworks Dynamics
As a relatively young & energetic company, we avoid the structure often associated with big corporations ASEAN Hotelworks employs talented and experienced resort General Managers and department heads who are entrepreneurial and bring initiative & innovation to the product. To ensure these are not only words on paper, we allow our General Managers a significant freedom and autonomy whilst still monitoring each operation and giving clear guidelines on financial targets, the ASEAN Hotelworks  operating philosophy and Best Practices, and essential controls and systems. Our General Managers take full responsibility for their unit. 

The ASEAN Hotelworks Experience
As the hospitality industry becomes more and more competitive and demanding, we see that differentiation is a key element in product development and positioning ASEAN Hotelworks  has identified niches in the market, which work on the assumption that clients are looking for an experience and service that excels and exceeds expectations, not merely a stay in a generic environment where guests are reduced to being identified by (room) numbers.
