Described by the Avani management as ‘an exclusive upscale resort at one of the hottest island destinations in Thailand’, the Avani+ Samui officially opened for business on 20th December 2018. The opening adds another property to the growing portfolio of Avani Hotels & Resorts.
Located on Taling Ngam Bay on the island’s southwest shore, the resort offers upscale accommodation in a secluded corner of one of Thailand’s most popular destinations. Visitors can engage in island-hopping in the local area, lounge on the beach or try some snorkelling around the island’s coral reefs. A number of waterfalls close to the resort are the perfect destination for some light trekking.
With 25 guest rooms, 27 private pool villas, and six beachfront pool villas, the resort is ideally suited to families, couples and groups in search of a tropical getaway. Rooms are spacious, characterized by natural materials and lighting. The villas, which are situated in the resort’s gardens, include a private pool.
In addition to modern facilities and luxurious surroundings, Avani+ Samui provides guests with a range of activities to enjoy, such as beach yoga, stand-up paddle-boarding and mountain biking. The AvaniSPA offers a range of relaxing treatments to soothe body and mind, whilst the resort’s Kombi Van bar serves refreshing cocktails and drinks, and PANTRY at Avani features a range of snacks and light meals inspired by local ingredients. With Thai and international specialities served at the beach restaurant, guests at Avani+ Samui can enjoy al fresco dining complemented by some excellent views.
“We are excited to confirm the Avani+ Samui opening, the second addition to our Avani+ portfolio, providing guests with our signature Avani+ experience for their beach getaway,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotels, owning company of Avani Hotels & Resorts. “Avani+ Samui also embraces an eco-friendly culture to help Samui maintain its natural beauty for future generations,” he continued. The resort uses bio-degradable materials and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, and has banned the use of plastic straws.
