Daniel Amadeus Steinke
AKARYN Hotel Group (AHG) has announced the appointment of Daniel Amadeus as General Manager of Aleenta Resort & Spa Phuket and of the brand new Akyra Beach Club Phuket.  
Daniel, a Swiss national, graduated with an Executive MBA with Reims Management School and renowned hospitality school École Hotelier de Lausanne, Switzerland. With over 25 Years in the hospitality industry Daniel comes to AHG with an abundance of world-class experience. He has worked with a number of hotels including the Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental, Conrad, Movenpick, Kempinski, InterContinental hotels and most recently with Dulac Hotels Moscow/Zurich.

Daniel will oversee the management and operations of both properties, bringing his invaluable expertise and broad international experience to each resort, helping AHG to further grow and develop as one of the leading hotels groups.  

Of his appointment, Daniel Amadeus comments, “Having worked in the corporate offices for the last few years, I must say I am thrilled to get back to the frontline as general manager. Although it is a substantial change geographically from Moscow to Thailand, I was sold by Khun Anchalika’s passion and belief in operations and getting the basics right. All my past experiences have well equipped me to take the helm on AHG’s two Phuket-Phang Nga properties, and I am ready to hit the beach running.”

In December 2016, the akyra Beach Club Phuket opened as a sophisticated new oceanside destination on spectacular Natai beach in Phang-Nga province, just 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport. Situated on Thailand’s sunset facing shore with inspirational Andaman seascape views, the resort is but a stroll along the beach from its well established elegant sister property, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa, and complements the barefoot luxury offerings next door. The hip, chilled-out experience is enhanced by a menu of top notch comfort cuisine and top shelf beverages, with live DJs, music and performances adding to the good vibrations.  

Though each resort is distinctive in its own right, Aleenta Phuket and akyra Beach Club Phuket combine to offer guests an unrivalled leisure and dining destination while also retaining the charm of a secluded beachside enclave. The location feels a world away from the well-trodden beaches of Phuket and sits comfortably between multi-million dollar private homes and local fishing communities.
