Our Company

It's often been said that one is judged by the company that one keeps, and as you begin your story and chart your own path as a valued partner with Anantara Vacation Club, it's only natural that you'll want to know more about us.

The roots of the parent of our luxury vacation club date as far back as 1970 when our founder William (Bill) Heinecke started, what is now, one of Thailand's largest hospitality and food services operators – Minor Holdings (now Minor International).

You might well ask why it's called 'Minor'. Simply put, Bill was under 18 years of age when he first began building his collection of diversified and complementary businesses.

The company now employs over 40,000 service professionals at more than 155 hotels and resorts, over 1,200 restaurants, some 35 spas and more than 300 retail outlets who have the pleasure of serving over 150 million customers in 24 countries every year. Minor's first hospitality business, Anantara Hotels & Resorts, was launched in 2001 with story-collecting travellers in mind, and ever since we have remained true to our brand pillars of indigenous discovery and grounded expertise. These cornerstones have guided our experiences, and also permitted us to get to know what inspires, motivates and satisfies you the most.

Our journey continues with Anantara Vacation Club. We invite you to make the very most of our Shared Ownership portfolio and open the doors to an illustrious and luxurious holiday lifestyle.
