Rightfully considered Koh Samui’s buzziest locale, Chaweng is awash in high-octane, sun-drenched beach vibes. By mid-2022, the desirable location will see the arrival of Avani Chaweng Samui Resort — Chaweng’s first mid-century motor Inn.
Situated along Chaweng Beach Road, just steps from the surf, the 76-room resort is strategically located to give guests direct access to the island’s best shopping, dining and entertainment venues. In addition, Samui International Airport is 15 minutes away bar car, making weekend getaways a breeze.
Avani Chaweng Samui Resort’s bold and fresh design takes its cues from motor hotels that gained popularity in mid-century America as a convenient lodging option for vacationing families. To bring that carefree experience back to the customers, SOHO Hospitality, a renowned Thailand-based studio known for their standout restaurant concepts, infused a predominantly contemporary space with mid-century influences.
The 50’s vibe is evoked via high-contrast geometric patterns and curves, mirrored furniture, abundant use of metallic and opulent fabrics. Keeping things modern, the retro space is decorated using contemporary materials and techniques, creating spaces that are ideal for relaxation and socialising in style
True to the original motor hotel concept, Avani Chaweng keeps its footprint small. In addition to 76 rooms, the property features a swimming pool with cabanas and a multi-level deck for socialising, a 24-hour gym and a social bar that doubles as a check-in area for guests who want to keep things casual.
All rooms come with perks, with the larger Groovy Suite providing living space to relax at and a minibar to entertain friends or family. In addition, with SEEN Beach Club Samui, a sister property located next door, Avani Chaweng Resort guests will get priority access to the trendy beach club’s restaurant serving internationally acclaimed cuisine and artisanal cocktails at its multiple swimming pools.
“Avani Chaweng Samui Resort will set the scene for an extraordinary experience that represents Avani’s concept of placing our customers right in the middle of all the action and encouraging them to get out and explore,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, the parent company of Avani Hotels & Resorts.
The new resort in Chaweng will be Avani’s tenth property in Thailand, with more developments in Thailand, the Maldives and the Middle East.
