Mali Resorts Koh Lipe

our story

How Our Story Began.

Our story began way back in 2006 on a remote, almost unheard of, stunning tropical Island in southern Thailand called Koh Lipe. Our founder,
Ryan Parker, relocated from the UK to work on developing the island’s tourism, notably working alongside Castaway Resort, Serendipity Resort and Mali Resorts with brand developement and online services to ensure digital reach on this fantastic new destination. Since then, Koh Lipe has seen unprecedented growth – the island has transformed into an industry power-house with several luxury resorts lining the white sand beaches and tropical, Maldives like waters.

Mali Resorts Koh Lipe

In 2008, following our success working on Koh Lipe, we founded our first company here in Bangkok – Backtobasics Design Co., Ltd., which was one of the original foreign-run (British) creative and digital agencies in Thailand, pioneering new technologies, work-flow methods and quality standards. After 5 years of growth and great success, we were acquired in 2013.

This gave us the renewed freedom to pursue our passion for hospitality once again, and a new direction in our story – the beginnings of what became Hotel Lobi Co., Ltd from 2016. Our core management team began to build a revenue driving partnership program, together with a high pedigree team of passionate professionals to execute the creative, technical and performance deliverables of our services.
