While CEO of lebua, Ohri set new industry standards and created the first “vertical destination.” Made known worldwide for its luxurious food and beverage concepts and unparalleled service, Ohri continued to break barriers with the opening of the world’s highest luxury rooftop restaurant, Sirocco, at lebua Bangkok, and consequently opened two additional flagship restaurants, both of which were awarded two Michelin stars each.

Under Ohri’s leadership, lebua – now with five properties across India, Thailand and New Zealand – was named the World’s Leading All-Suite Hotel by World Travel Award and continues to be rated among the top 1 percent of companies globally for customer satisfaction.

Ohri is already planning his next move – a luxury “hybrid” hospitality brand that will launch in the United States.

“It has been an honour to serve as lebua’s founder and CEO for the past 20 years,” he said. “I am proud of what we have accomplished and could not have
