Avani Hotels debuts bayside spa resort in Thailand

01 Feb 2019
Avani Hotels & Resorts has opened Avani + Samui – a beachfront retreat located near Taling Ngam on the tropical island of Koh Samui.

Formerly known as the Elements Boutique Resort, the new getaway features 58 nature-inspired rooms and villas, as well as a pool, spa, and gym.

The gym is equipped with weights, cardio machines, and TRX units, while the spa offers a variety of bespoke treatments including aromatherapy sessions, facials, and coconut-oil massages.

Also on offer at the resort is a wide-ranging programme of sports and wellness activities, such as yoga classes, Muay Thai lessons, and paddleboarding.

The hotel, which has been in the works since 2017, is Avani's 24th property globally and its sixth to launch in Thailand.

A lifestyle division of international hospitality operator Minor Hotels, Avani was founded in 2012 with an emphasis on improving sleep health, creating effective social spaces, and providing locally sourced food.

"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 Dilip Rajakarier, CEO at Minor Hotels.

He continued: "Avani+ Samui also embraces an eco-friendly culture to help Samui maintain its natural beauty for future generations."

The group currently manages a portfolio of resorts in 15 countries, including recent acquisitions in Busan, Dubai, and Bangkok.
