NAPHAPORN “LEK” BODIRATNANGKURA
Naphaporn “Lek” Bodiratnangkura, 4th generation of the Nai Lert family, is the daughter of Chutipat and Sanhapit Bodiratnangkura, and the maternal granddaughter of Thanpuying Lursakdi Sampatisiri. After her education in England and at Parsons School of Design in New York City, Lek joined the family business and in 2014 became Managing Director of the group, whose portfolio of assets includes Nai Lert Park Heritage Home, Nai Lert Butler, Ma Maison Restaurant, Lady L Garden Bistro, Caviar Café, and Aman Nai Lert Hotel and Residences.
Once a carefree socialite, Naphaporn’s passions nowadays lie in the day-to-day business of helping to run her famous family’s empire. One of her most celebrated accomplishments was helping orchestrate the 10.8-billion-Baht sale of the family’s Swissôtel Nai Lert Park Hotel to Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS). She also continues the family’s philanthropic projects — preserving nature with the Nai Lert Flower and Garden Art Fair, and aiding education and healthcare through the Lert-Sinn Foundation.
