Aleenta and Akyra hotels and resorts cater to the ladies with four-day, three-night Deluxe Doyenne packages that focus on unique stays, lots of play and creative learning.

Upon arrival, guests will enjoy the aroma of an evocative scent emanating from an oil burner or candle in their room as they savour a refreshing welcome drink and healthy snacks. The second day, guests can join an Art of Hospitality course of floral design conducted by a professional florist, or take lessons in how to make a selection of creative canapes and cocktails – skills they can put to good use when hosting a gathering or entertaining friends back home. 

Different options of recreational and sport activities are available on day three at each of the participating properties. The Akyra Beach Club Phuket has surfing, stand-up paddle boarding as well as basic DJ skills using a special smartphone app. 

The Akyra Manor Chiang Mai offers a painting workshop by a local artist and the Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa gives you a chance to learn the basics of Thai massage, yoga or Thai boxing with experienced instructors. 

The Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa introduces a cooking session that begins with collecting fresh ingredients from the resort’s farm and a talk on Thai herbs and their benefits and ends with a demonstration in Aeenta kitchen and Ayurah Spa.

“Twenty years ago, independent females travellers were somewhat of an anomaly and certainly not the norm when compared to other demographics,” says Anchalika Kijkanakorn, founder and managing director of Akaryn Hotel Group.

.“Today, women are not only an important guest segment, but they also create new trends for the industry while providing invaluable insights into hotel operations,” said “With this new package we hope to make stays for women in some of Thailand’s most popular destinations more enjoyable and fulfilling than ever, while also giving them new skills to learn along the way.”
