Avani to open two resorts in Krabi

New resorts will complement Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok, which opens this month.

Avani Hotels & Resorts this week announced the signing of two new resorts in Krabi, marking the brand’s continued growth in Thailand.

The existing resorts will undergo renovations and will be fully rebranded as Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, which will open its doors in late 2019, and Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort, set to launch by mid-2020.

Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort will feature 83 rooms nestled within pristine wooded parklands, with direct access to a secluded white sand beach adjacent to the renowned Klong Dao Beach. The island is just 70 km south of Krabi International Airport and can be accessed via a 15-minute ferry crossing from the mainland.

The 178-room Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort will overlook the popular Ao Nang Beach and will feature contemporary design, a new dining experience and an AvaniSPA relaxation facility.

“We are extremely excited to include Krabi in our portfolio as the Avani brand expands further through such agreements with trusted partners within Thailand,” says Javier Pardo, VP 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, 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 in the Maldives, Mauritius, Vietnam and Yangon.
