Avani Hotels & Resorts has signed two new resort hotels in the southern Thailand resort town of Krabi, marking the brand’s continued growth within Thailand. The existing resorts will undergo renovations to bring the properties in line with Avani standards.
The two hotels will be fully rebranded as Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort, set to launch by mid-2020, and Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, which will open its doors later this year.
The 83-room Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort is nestled within pristine wooded parklands, offering sea views from its gentle hills with direct access to a secluded white sand beach adjacent to the renowned Klong Dao Beach. The island is just 70 kilometres south of Krabi International Airport and can be accessed via a 15-minute ferry crossing from the mainland.
Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort will overlook the Ao Nang Beach with beautiful vistas of the nearby limestone cliffs and sea views. The 178-key property will feature contemporary design, new dining experience and an AvaniSPA relaxation facility, and is located 35 minutes from Krabi International Airport.
“We are extremely excited to include Krabi in our portfolio as the Avani brand expands further through such agreements with trusted partners within Thailand,” said Javier Pardo – Vice President of Operations for Avani Hotels & Resorts.
The newly rebranded resorts will bring the total number of Avani properties in Thailand to nine after Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok, which is set to open this month.
Avani Hotels & Resorts currently operates 27 properties in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, most recently debuting in both Cambodia and South Korea. The brand has a strong pipeline of new properties under development, including in new destinations such as the Maldives, Mauritius, Vietnam and Yangon.
