About Us

From the moment a guest walks into a hotel, we believe they deserve an experience as unique as they are. They should feel a strong sense of style and place in the design, authenticity in the environment and human connection in the service. These things should stay with them - and this is what we’re all about.

AIM is a passionate hospitality management team for those who seek profitable solutions through creating memorable, distinctive and guest-centred experiences.

Our innovative approach, teamed with hands-on owner-operator experience and genuine values, have proved to be quite a combination, and one that has led to our growing collection of successful boutique properties.

Leadership

Jimmy Gunawan and Michelle Tanaya

  • Upon completing their respective Masters degrees at the University of South Wales, Australia, Jimmy Gunawan and Michelle Tanaya assumed responsibility for several businesses in Kuta, Bali.

    At a time of significant changes in the hospitality industry, Jimmy and Michelle saw the opportunity for creating a collection of stylish and distinctive boutique properties, giving guests more than just the usual, forgettable experience.

    They began by renovating and rebranding their largest Kuta property at the time, Villa de daun. Playing to their strengths and past experience - Jimmy’s brilliant business mind for finance, development, sales and marketing, and Michelle’s incredible knowledge of design, and meticulous eye for detail– the pair had found an outstanding combination.

    They have since gone on to open, own and manage a collection of successful brands, including award-winning wellness facility DaLa Spa, Indonesian cuisine restaurant Petani, and the 60-room boutique resort, Alaya Ubud. With their entrepreneurial eyes firmly on future of an evolving hospitality industry, Jimmy and Michelle have exciting new plans in motion. But they’re always seeking opportunity to add to their portfolio of unique hospitality brands. So if you have a perspective project you would like to discuss, please get in touch.
