Phatra "Pepe" Khamthiang is the Chief Executive officer at the KR Hotel & Restaurant. She studied at Sukhothai Thammathirat University's Faculty of Law for four years, coming from a family of law enforcement as her father was a police officer for many years. Pepe's business interests have included jewelry, silverware, cosmetics and selling and buying real estate across the country, including the construction of homes, roads, factories and other business interests. She says that when it came to setting up a hotel in Phuket, she had to educate herself in the hotel industry and traveled to multiple locations including Macau, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, and South Korea to heighten her awareness of how hotels are properly run.
"We believe KR Hotel Restaurant is in a good location, near shopping, near the beach, just a 10-minute walk from the hotel's friendly and caring service. We focus on customer care staff and treat our staff as family. We think service is the most important aspect of the hotel business. We are confident that the hotel business will continue to grow with the tourism and tourism-related services, as Thailand has so much to offer travelers. We welcome everyone and realize that the tourism industry generates huge revenues for this country. We hope that the tourism industry will continue to flourish and benefit Thai people at all levels."
Pepe says that hotel management is a tough job requiring sensitivity and understanding. "We have to be loyal to our culture and represent Thailand properly, but we must care for our customers as if they are family too. What makes us successful is our location and our service. Before, we had to sell 'Thainess' to get people to travel to Thailand and convince that we are indeed the 'Land of Smiles'. Today, however, we have evolved into a 'Land of 100,000 Smiles' and we do not need travel anywhere. People just know, that in Thailand, everyone smiles. And the quality of service we provide brings customers time and time again."
