Providing guests with the perfect balance between work and play and laid-back and lavish since 2011, Avani Hotels & Resorts is this month celebrating their 10th Birthday.

Avani properties across the globe will be offering guests special welcome gifts to celebrate the extraordinary journey that saw the brand grow from one hotel to over 30 in just ten years.

Australian and New Zealand based properties will be offering a special welcome gift to all guests checking in between 1-10 December, ranging from a free upgrade, early check-in, late check-out or a free local experience. Guests will also enjoy a welcome amenity in room on arrival, such as a cookie, chocolate or bottle of wine.

Avani Hotels & Resorts’ Story

Avani’s story started in October 2011 when Geoffrey Bawa-designed Avani Bentota Resort opened near the southern tip of Sri Lanka. The tropical island was the perfect birthplace for a brand inspired by the Sanskrit word for earth and rooted in nature and adventure. In 2014 Avani went urban with the opening of Avani Atrium, the brand’s first city hotel located on Bangkok’s New Petchburi Road, smack in the middle of all the downtown action. In the next few years, the brand added Avani Seychelles, a stunning African debut, and Avani Victoria Falls, the 10th property.

The brand expanded into New Zealand in 2017 with Avani Auckland Metropolis Residences, followed by its foray into the Australian market with Avani Broadbeach Residences in 2017, Avani Melbourne Central Residences in 2018 and Avani Melbourne Box Hill Residences and Avani Adelaide Residences in 2019.

The brand’s European debut took place in 2017 with the opening of Avani Avenida Liberdade Lisbon, the brand’s European flagship. Shortly after, the Avani+ brand extension was unveiled in Laos, spotlighting historic and design-led properties. 2019 saw the arrival of another Asian icon for Avani with the highly buzzed-about opening of FCC Angkor by Avani in Siem Reap, Cambodia. In 2021, the 34th hotel joined the family — Avani+ Mai Khao in sunny Phuket — adding 6,000+ keys to Avani’s worldwide inventory.

‘The rapid growth of the Avani Hotels & Resorts global portfolio to 30 properties in 10 years has been no mean feat’ said Craig Hooley, Chief Operating Officer for Avani Hotels & Resorts in Australia and New Zealand.

‘Since welcoming the brand into the Australian and New Zealand Market in 2017, travellers have warmly responded to this fresh modern brand with our upbeat service culture that is rooted in traditional Thai hospitality. We continue to identify key locations to grow this exciting brand and bring a new level of service to the Australian and New Zealand landscape.’

Guests have plenty of exciting openings to look forward to, starting with Avani+ Koh Lanta Resort that will be opening by 20th December 2021, followed by Avani+ Khao Lak Resort and Avani+ Fares Maldives Resort, scheduled to open in 2022. A little further down the line are Avani Muscat in Oman and another Thai addition, Avani Chaweng Samui.
