Vacationers who love the relaxed beaches of Thailand’s Koh Samui now have one more accommodation option to check in to, with the opening of Avani+ Samui by Avani Hotels & Resorts. Touted as an upscale resort located in Phang Ka Bay near Taling Ngam on the island’s southwest shore, the quiet getaway is built with couples and families in mind.
Housing 25 guest rooms, 27 private pool villas, and 6 beachfront pool villas, the place features plenty of natural light, with nature-inspired interior and lush gardens by the sandy shores. It’s an idyllic holiday spot that’s fancy without breaking the bank, and opening promo prices start from US$104 per night, while a more luxe villa retreat goes for US$283 per night with the inclusion of island excursions, a private beach dinner, and spa treatments.
If you’d rather explore on your own time, the resort’s activities include beach yoga, stand-up paddle-boarding, and mountain biking. Further afield, the nearby islands offer opportunities for snorkeling amongst the area’s vibrant marine life.
To snuff out those hunger pands, the Kombi Van bar provides cocktails and drinks, Pantry at Avani doles out snacks and light bites, and beachfront restaurant Essence serves Thai and international food.
