Urs Aebi is the urbane General Manager of Triple C Hotels and Resorts. We caught up with him over evening drinks at the beautifully located East 88 Beach Lounge at Serenity Resort & Residences overlooking Chalong Bay.
What background and experience do you bring to your role as GM of Triple C Hotels and Resorts?
I was born in Switzerland and graduated from the Hotel Management School in Lausanne in 1992 and soon after moved to Asia to take up my first assignment with Amari Hotels and Resorts in Bangkok.
Subsequently I gained executive positions with Sofitel Centara in Hua Hin, then Cape Panwa Hotel in Phuket, before joining The Racha-a fabulous all-villa resort on Racha Island south of Phuket – as the General Manager. I oversaw the opening of The Racha in the third quarter of 2004 and we quickly established it as one of the premier resorts in S.E Asia.
Prior to joining Triple C Hotels and Resorts as General Manager in August 2010, I was Director of Operations and Development for Akaryn Hospitality Management Services based in Bangkok, where I oversaw operations of the two award-winning Aleenta Resorts in Thailand and pre-opening services for a new ultra luxury resort near Sihanoukville in Cambodia.
