Jon Stonham is CEO of the Elite Havens Group.
Jon founded Private Homes & Villas in 2008 with the object of consolidating accurate information and hard opinion with a technical distribution platform and first class customer service for the villa market in Asia.
Private Homes & Villas bought out the Elite Havens Group in 2013 and now offers management and marketing services to over 170 luxury villas around Asia.
An 18 year veteran of the online travel sector, Jon co-founded the highly successful asia-hotels.com in the mid 1990s out of frustration with the lack of information on the Internet on Asian hotels, the lack of knowledge of local travel agents and the generally poor level of service.
It grew to one of the most popular Asian hotel portals, well known for its accurate opinions on hotels and published the successful Asia’s Best Hotels & Resorts.
In 2005 asia-hotels.com was sold to Orbitz.
Jon has a Masters Degree in Engineering and Business from Imperial College, University of London.
