OUR TEAM

HANGOUT by KLY Phuket represents the next evolution of the K Hotel, a colourful institution in the centre of Patong that was first opened in 1984 as a family business by Werner Karasek. Christine and Sebastian are proud to represent the family name and renovate and recreate the hotel into a modern and progressive space for a new generation of traveller.

HANGOUT is run by real people with enthusiasm for what they do.
Meet the team, discover their story and see what drives them.

CHRISTINE KARASEK

Owner

Born and raised in Phuket, Christine has seen the island evolve and change over the years. She has a dual passion for the outdoors and nature, weaving a sustainability focus into the DNA of HANGOUT. Her vision? A welcoming oasis with warm-hearted locals, good food, lazy-easy going vibe and of course, palm trees. The leafy grounds are her time capsule into the golden era of Patong in the 80s and even 90s before it transformed into the glitzy entertainment centre it is today.

SEBASTIAN KARASEK

Owner

Sebastian has hospitality in his blood, growing up around the family hotel business in Phuket and studying event management in Switzerland. Ask him where he’s most at home though and his answer will be ‘the ocean’. Whether it’s spearfishing, surfing or freediving, this born adventure seeker is in his element when he’s underwater. Also passionate about conservation and the environment, Sebastian is committed to bringing more sustainable practices to the Phuket hotel industry.

RAMON GAEMPERLI

Owner

Ramon left his home in Switzerland, switching snowboard for a surfboard and relocating to Phuket to create a new type of accommodation experience. Ramon’s vision of HANGOUT is to create the sort of space that he would want to hang out himself. A place that fuses good food with a balance between healthy and naughty, a casual and relaxed atmosphere where everyone is welcome to hang, work and play. Where people can truly HANGOUT.

BRUNO LESPURQUE

General Manager

Bringing 15 years of overseas hospitality experience with him, Bruno has worn many hats, from F&B Director at Club Med Saint Moritz through to General Manager at Libre Resorts in Lijiang, China. His passion for the industry has taken him around the world to roles in France, Italy, Turkey, Spain, Cambodia, Switzerland, Guadeloupe, Morocco and more. Part of a new generation of General Managers, Bruno brings a fresh approach to management and guest satisfaction.

FLORIAN SCHILLER

Chef

Drawn to the kitchen from a young age, Florian ditched the schoolyard to pursue his passion for creating fine food, training at the Culinary School Miesbach in Germany. Over the years he has honed his craft at Michelin star restaurants in Austria, Germany and Portugal and Thailand along with some of the Top 50 restaurants in Asia like Gaa and Bo.lan. His international experience and love of fusing Thai flavours create compelling and distinctive tastes than will elevate your experience.

ECO - SEXY

Let’s start with making eco sexy. Interior design. Eco values. They’re both equally important to us. That’s why we try to be sustainable every step of the way.

We are standing up for the planet by strictly using organic cleaning products throughout the property. All of our toiletries, shampoo and conditioner are all-natural and organic.

In order to keep this little slice of paradise perfect, we are committed to minimizing plastic waste, moving towards a vision of zero waste. We provide water stations to encourage guests to use reusable water containers instead of plastic and always say NO to plastic bags at leading supermarkets and food vendors.

Beach cleanups happen every few months, ask at reception when the next one will be.

DOGGIE - FRIENDLY

Our four-legged friends are an essential part of our lives and we couldn’t imagine vacationing without them. We welcome your furry pal and they’re welcome to join you and hangout at HANGOUT.

We’ve even crafted a range of exclusive indulgences for your pet with a dog room service menu, loaded with treats that will have your canine companion feeling right at home.

Note: One dog per room is allowed but if you have special requirements, please let management know in advance.

If you’d like to volunteer to end the suffering of dogs in Asia, the Soi Dog Foundation is based in Phuket and does amazing work. They are always on the lookout for volunteers so if you’d like to assist at their shelter you can email them at volunteering@soidog.org
