Hotelier Indonesia - Breaking New Grounds Keeps Senior Hoteliers Coming Back to Annual Summit

Bangkok, Thailand (24 Feb 2017) – The Hotel Management Thailand Summit (HMT), the region’s leading conference, will return to Bangkok on 25 May 2017. Over 150 international speakers and delegates are expected to attend the much anticipated event. HMT is produced by international conference producer Questex Hospitality Group and will gather senior hoteliers where they will discuss ways to thrive through generating revenue and boosting operational efficiency.

Despite the memorable events Thailand has experienced within the past few years, tourist arrivals are expected to grow by year’s end, yet with numerous hotels opening, fierce competition abound.

Themed, “Inspire Viable Strategies to Boost Revenue and Profit for Vibrant Hoteliers,” HMT serves as a platform for senior hoteliers comprised of Corporate-level CEOs/ Presidents, COOs and CFOs, VP operations, Property-level GMs, Financial Controllers, Director of operations, and hotel owners and managing directors.
2016 speaker Wayne Buckingham, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, FRHI Hotels & Resorts described the benefit of attending this event: “…you need to be flexible, you need to adapt. And spending time at the conference, it gives you a lot of ideas and different thinking so you can open your mind to possibilities than what you might not see every day.”

Last year, over 150 delegates representing 93 organizations took part in the closed-door conference. From start to finish, delegates savored the latest topics.

“Attending the Hotel Management Thailand Summit is an eye-opener, as it shows an unvarnished picture of the “state of the industry” and flagrantly reveals that learning never should stop! If more hospitality stakeholders would take the time to attend, most of Thailand’s hostels and resorts would be in a much better shape!,” said Bert van Walbeek, Managing Director of THE WINNING EDGE.

The 2017 summit will reflect on the post-merger competitive landscapes of Bangkok and various key markets, focusing on ramifications and strategies to excel for hoteliers working for chains and independents alike. Other hot topics of concerns will also make their ways onto the conference agenda to help inspire leading hotel managers for better financial results.

HMT Summit 2017 is part of the Hotel Management Asia summit Series, Asia’s only truly regional hotel management conference series. The series will rotate through Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Indonesia this year by leveraging regional experiences, insights, and innovations to address market-specific challenges.

Hotelier Indonesia - ANANTARA ULUWATU BALI RESORT: A SMALL SOAP FOR A BIG HOPE

Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort is pleased to announce a collaboration with ROLE Foundation, a foundation that concentrate on stopping land-based waste from getting into the oceans and creating sustainable jobs to protect the livelihoods of coastal communities.

Every year in Bali 75 tons of soap are thrown away in hotels and villas which have only been used once or twice by guests and the numbers are growing while many people across the island have no access to basic hygiene products The team was moved by their programme “Soap For Hope” and acted immediately. Soap for Hope is actually the brainchild of Sealed Air Corp, a cleaning and sanitation solutions provider, and it aims to recycle lightly used hotel guest soap and distribute it to underprivileged families and communities in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The project was first launched in 2003 in the UAE in collaboration with couple of hotels, and today it operates with over 50 hotels in 10 countries to divert soap from landfills and donate recycled soap to those who need it most.


When the soap arrive at the reprocessing center, the used hospitality soap is broken down, sanitized and reconstructed incorporating a range of organic fragrances such as lemongrass and jasmine. They then distribute the finished product to orphanages, the elderly and disadvantaged people in Bali for free and sell some of the soap in the foundation shop.

“This is a very good program for us to join as we can help the local community. Children are getting sick because of poor hygiene resulting from a lack of access to soap and we used to throw away so much of it every day. During the month of November and December we manage to deliver 25 kg of soap. Such actions are important and have a great impact on our team members as well as this program shines light on clever and useful recycling. Bali relise heavily on tourism as source of income, so it is in the interest of local people to improve and preserve cleanliness throughout the island an it’s beaches,” explained Dimitri Delepierre, Executive Assistant Manager of Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort. 

The results are less solid waste, new skill sets and means of livelihood for local people and better sanitation in villages.

The pinnacle of elegance, this 5-star luxury resort in Langkawi is an inviting sanctuary of sophisticated island living, amidst the spectacular surrounds of centuries-old rainforest fauna and nature, exalted by the sparkling glimmer of the turquoise Andaman Sea.

Uncompromising accommodation takes the form of 85 suites and 4 over-water villas, each graciously appointed with artistic detailing and refined comforts, no expense is spared to provide our guests the best beachfront resort experience available on the island.

The morning walk session is from 8am to 9.30am while the evening walk is from 6.30pm to 8pm.

Starting at the lobby, learn the meaningful history behind The St. Regis, and the significance of the Beringin tree and its powerful symbolism. Strolling through the resort, our Naturalist will introduce and reveal fascinating facts about the row of date trees by the poolside and assorted flowers and plants in the garden, including anecdotes about the “King of Fruits” – the durian.
As the walk wends towards and along the beachfront, he will hold you spellbound with the mythical history of Langkawi, the meaning behind its name and the archipelago’s geological evolution in the past 250 million years.

Delving into the tropical rainforest’s rich eco-system and biodiversity, he will touch on the cultural, heritage and medicinal aspects, as well as the importance of mangrove trees to the coastal areas here.
Besides an overview of the fish native to the Andaman Sea, the Naturalist will also share information about Geopark Langkawi, the eagles and different bird species found on the island and their migration patterns.

As the walk comes to its finishing point - at the roundabout heading towards the water villa – he will highlight to you the numerous types of butterflies and monkeys native to these lush surroundings.
Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable T-shirts, shorts and sandals or sports shoes. For evening walks, we recommend bringing along the torch from your suite or villa.

Please secure your place in advance through the Concierge. Each walking session accommodates up to a maximum of 12 guests. Kindly be present at the lobby 10 minutes before the walk commences. Mineral water will be provided to participating guests.
