Dalin Snidvongs Na Ayudhya has been appointed General Manager of luxury Thailand hotel and member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Rayavadee in Krabi.
A Bangkok-native, Dalin brings a wealth of hospitality experience to Rayavadee, most recently as the first Thai to hold the post of Director of Food and Beverage at The Sukhothai Bangkok.
During her seven years overseeing The Sukothai’s restaurant and events operations, she successfully launched its ‘Art of Dining’ program which brought 2 and 3 star Michelin chefs from around the world and introduced them to Bangkok’s culinary scene.
Dalin has also held roles including Director of Restaurants, Four Seasons Bangkok and Managing Director, Très Bien Co., a subsidiary of Index Event Agency and one of the leading event organisers in Thailand.
She is a well-respected hotelier with a reputation for an eye for detail and for her direct and hands on approach to operations.
Dalin described her first impression of Rayavadee as “serene” and compared it to arriving to “a home away from home where the natural surroundings combine perfectly with the warm hospitality of the staff to create the sort of relaxed escape busy people are looking for when they want to switch off”.
A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Rayavadee presents award-winning architecture, superb Thai and international dining, a relaxing spa and a fleet of speedboats for excursions to surrounding islands.
Set within the spectacular scenery of Krabi’s Marine National Park in the heart of the Phranang Peninsular on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast, Rayavadee features 98 luxurious pavilions and 4 beachfront villas spread over 26 acres of coconut groves and tropical landscapes, set against a backdrop of sheer limestone cliffs and bordered by three beaches.
Guests have opportunities to visit a deserted beach at sunset, kayak through a pristine mangrove forest, climb aboard an elephant for a ramble through the Krabi landscape, scale a rock wall with a private rock climbing instructor, hike a nature trail to a waterfall, learn to scuba dive or discover the art of Thai cooking.
