French national Thomas Ehrhart, better known to his friends as Tommy, has been the Hotel Manager at the Amari Hua Hin for only a few weeks but there’s a confidence in his fresh approach and clear ideas for the future.
Thomas has arrived in his new role in Hua Hin after an unusual personal journey. His formal education was in marketing and management rather than studies directly related to the hospitality industry, however that future was always beckoning.
As his father is a chef and his sister is a sommelier he thinks there is something in his genes which drew him towards this industry. His early hospitality experiences began 10 year ago after venturing from France to Canada. Not just the better known Canadian locations but to the Yukon, the smallest and western most of Canada’s three federal territories. Being bilingual (English and French), was a big advantage but the subarctic climate, with long cold winters and brief warm summers was not really an attraction. A persistent approach towards potential employers led to being accepted by the Amari group in an assistant manager role in Bangkok.
He was then really on his way up the hospitality career ladder. Thomas has a specialty in the food and beverage side of the business but creativity and a real understanding of the corporate social responsibilities (CSR) of the industry also stands out. He has worked in this area for the past six years in Bangkok and conducted task force programs across Asia. He would like to contribute, with his team, to the evolution of food and beverages at the hotel. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience and the discovery of a new food concept, the Shoreline Beach Club, located by the sea, is the place for you and your loved ones. For a private dinner the Reef Deli Wine Cellar restaurant offers a great opportunity to unearth amazing signature dishes and drinks that will surprise your partner, friends or business associates. With culinary creativity and continuous development, Thomas and his team will be more than happy to hear from you about your personal favorites and looks forward to welcoming you to an Amari restaurant soon.
