At Mantra Samui Resort in Koh Samui, Thailand

Chaivaree Chitrakorn

Louis T Collection has appointed Chaivaree Chitrakorn as general manager of Mantra Samui Resort in Koh Samui, Thailand.

The Thai-national, who has spent most of her career with Cathay Pacific Airways in Hong Kong, relocated to her homeland last year to join Louis T Collection and has assumed a new position at Mantra Samui Resort as her second posting with the hospitality management and building solutions company.

Chitrakorn, known to her team and friends as Meow, joined Louis T Collection in June 2017 as hotel manager for Hotel Bocage, a chic, six-room boutique hotel designed by the acclaimed Thai architect, Duangrit Bunnag, in the Thai resort town of Hua Hin.

Chitrakorn has a wealth of experience in managing teams and inspiring high performance. She joined Louis T Collection from her latest role as attendance management executive at Cathay Pacific where she drove performance management and provided appropriate counselling and support for over 8,000 cabin crew members. She was also an inflight services manager for two decades, managing cabin crew, monitoring their performance and continuously enhancing passenger satisfaction throughout the inflight experience.

Chitrakorn is responsible for all operations of the boutique hotel that overlooks Bophut Beach from a lush hillside location. The property features an infinity pool; the Jai Spa, which looks to nature for its treatment ingredients; and The View, an all-day Western and Thai restaurant that looks over the Gulf of Thailand. Mantra Samui Resort is also home to Koh Samui's first dedicated co-working space, which opened earlier this year.
