Ek and Dave(Ek is from a local Thai family, born on Koh Chang, while Dave is of Welsh-Canadian origin) founded their original hotel resort in 1998 on a prime piece of beachside property on Koh Chang 's most desirable beach, White Sand Beach. Named in honour of their new baby daughter, Alina, the hotel was an immediate success. With its charming, family-style approach, personal service and friendly staff, Ek and Dave (and little Alina) soon found their resort becoming a favourite with locals and tourists alike.
Four years later, Ek and Dave purchased the property across the road, and plans began for their new expansion, Alina Grande. With every detail designed with the comfort of their guests in mind, Alina Grande opened in early 2006, and continues to grow and thrive, while never losing the personal touch that Alina Grande Hotel and Resort is known for.
