An increase in interest in beach destinations such as Amari Phuket, Amari Hua Hin and Amari Vogue Krabi has been identified and it is anticipated that the new Amari Havodda Maldives, opening 2016, will appeal to the luxury traveller from the Middle East seeking the experience of new and unexplored hotels.
Onyx Hospitality Group manages 56 properties with over 6,000 rooms in 10 countries across four diverse yet complementary brands – Saffron, Amari, Shama and OZO – each catering to the distinctive requirements of today’s business and leisure travellers.ONYx reaches beyond its Thai roots to offer innovative management solutions across the Indian Ocean, Arabian Gulf and Asia-Pacific regions.

We have many exciting projects in Asia and beyond, including expansion into aspirational destinations such as the Maldives and Bali. We are delighted to be opening our second OZO hotel in Sri Lanka in May, with the opening of OZO Kandy, and are looking forward to our first hotel in the Maldives with Amari Havodda Maldives in early 2016.
