Avani Hotels and Resorts Opens New Upscale Resort in Thailands Koh Samui February 3, 2019 Travel 101 Avani Hotels & Resorts (www.avanihotels.com) expanded its portfolio in Thailand with the launch of Avani+ Samui, an upscale resort situated on Phang Ka Bay near Taling Ngam on Koh Samui’s southwest shore. Avani+ Samui is designed as a seaside hideaway, ideal for couples or families. Steps away from an untouched, secluded bay guests can choose from 25 guest rooms, 27 private pool villas, or six beachfront pool villas. Each is spacious, with nature-inspired interiors and ample natural lighting. Even more privacy can be found within the villas, where modern amenities are surrounded by verdant gardens with a private pool for the ultimate indulgence. Koh Samui has long been a major island destination for local and international holiday-makers with a wide-range of activities from the relaxing to the adventurous. With its untouched beaches and easy access to the rest of the island, Taling Ngam Bay makes a perfect location from which to take it all in. Visitors can take a trip to smaller islands close by, lounge on the sand or wonder at the sea life while snorkelling or island hopping. Crisp waterfalls close to the resort provide a lush background for exploring nature or to enjoy a refreshing dip.
