Amanresorts Chairman Adrian Zecha Steps Down

May 8, 2014 By: Mary Winston Nicklin


Big news in the hospitality world. Adrian Zecha- the visionary founder of Amanresorts- has decided to step down from his position of chairman and CEO. Aman Group, the holding company for Amanresorts, recently made the announcement. Johan Eliasch will take over as chairman while Vladislav Doronin, a real-estate developer and the lead investor, has been appointed CEO.

In the official press release, Doronin said, "The Aman Group's philosophy is to immerse guests in a unique and personal experience. We intend to preserve the spirit of Aman while growing the brand through future strategic development opportunities including exotic locations for which the brand is well-known as well as into major metropolitan destinations.”


When Zecha launched the first property Amanpuri on the island of Phuket in 1988, he pioneered a new style of ultra-luxe boutique resort, each unique, minimalist, and boasting remote, natural settings. Over the years, the group has won a devoted following of Amanjunkies. Today there are 26 luxury resorts in 18 countries including Bhutan, Greece, Montenegro, Morocco, and the US.
