The resort, as with all upcoming Wellity Collection properties, paves the future in the hospitality and tourism industry by incorporating science-based wellness features into every facet of guests’ experience. AKSORN RAYONG, THE WELLITY COLLECTION is our first pride and joy.” said Mr. Vincent Tan, COO of Wellity Co., Ltd.
“Anthony, together with my expertise, agreed to bring medical innovation to the world of hospitality starting in Thailand, with this unique concept of “wellness meets hospitality” that merges well-being along with hotel and resort service excellence. Hence, he founded and established Singapore based company Wellity Pte. Ltd. (a subsidiary of AJT Holdings Pte. Ltd.), in 2017; in order to pursue and realize that vision. AKSORN RAYONG, THE WELLITY COLLECTION is the true beginning of The Wellity Collection properties and hotels that take the five human senses combined with the additional sense, termed as “The Wellity Sense” – addressing customers’ well-being needs formed on the basis of evidence-research.
Various programs that guests can look forward to at the resort’s wellness center are backed by evidence and science-based research, conducted by certified physicians and practitioners. For example, the Wellity Center’s Ozone Infrared Therapy is a deep penetrating heat that promotes sweating at lower temperatures. It absorbs easily and can aid in improving your body’s circulation and detoxification. Ozone therapy is used for its ability to neutralize bacteria and viruses. The two principles are combined in a personalized pod for users to relax in. Thus, I believe that AKSORN RAYONG, THE WELLITY COLLECTION will be one of the most unique and refreshing accommodation experiences our guests will ever have.” said Dr. Mark L. Gordon, Lead Medical Director of Wellity Co., Ltd.

Strategically located along the Laem Mae Pim eastern coastline in Rayong, the resort comes as an answer to the Thailand 4.0 strategy on land development, leveraging on the success of the government’s Eastern Economic Development Plan and Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).
