CEO, Manor Group
Well versed in the life of luxury, John Lim, a form scientist with no background in hospitality reinvented himself as the founder of Manor Group. A triple threat, Manor Group specializes in hospitality, management, and development. His first hotel, the luxurious all-suite Akyra Manor Chiang Mai, is the third highest rated hotel on TripAdvisory out of 374 hotels. With broader horizons in mind, John has forged partnerships with co-owner of boutique hotel The Edison -- from Malaysia -- and Shimaya Stays -- from Kyoto, Japan.
