Thailand-based ONYX Hospitality Group has appointed Michael Vogt as the new General Manager of Amari Vogue Krabi, an intimate 57-room resort with elegant Lanna-inspired architecture in a beautiful garden setting.
From May 2011, Mr Vogt will officially take over from Simon Dell, who will go on to manage the upcoming Amari Hua Hin resort. In his new role, Mr Vogt will be in charge of all operations at the five-star Krabi property.

Moving to Asia in 2005, Mr Vogt joined the 50-room Layana Resort in Krabi, Thailand, as Resident Manager before becoming GM three years later. Under his management, the property would win TripAdvisor.com’s ‘Best Luxury Asia’ award four years in a row as well as two World Luxury Hotel Awards.
Mr Vogt now takes the reins at Amari Vogue Krabi, located on the pristine Tub Kaek Beach and just a 30-minute drive from Krabi’s town centre. Set right on the beach and overlooking the Andaman Sea, the picturesque resort offers a range of holiday experiences, from romantic weekend getaways to family vacations.
