Avani Hotels to Open Brands First Resort in Phuket with Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas
Avani Hotels announces the upcoming launch of Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas, the brand's ninth property in Thailand and the first in Phuket scheduled to open on 1st July 2021. Located in northwest Phuket, the new resort is 15 minutes from Phuket International Airport and steps from Mai Khao Beach and the Turtle Village Shopping Complex. The property was rebranded from Anantara Phuket Suites & Villas, to better suit the market needs.
In addition to offering Phuket travellers 70 one, two, and three-bedroom suites and 30 expansive one- to four-bedroom pool villas, the resort's key facilities include a spacious main pool, a kid's club, a gym and a number of restaurants and bars, all set in a lush tropical ambience.
After an exciting day exploring the islands, the beaches and Phuket's Old Town, travellers can retreat to Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket to recharge. Every spacious suite and villa is accentuated with breezy, beachy tones, designed to foster a welcoming, laidback island atmosphere. Guests will feel at home with private kitchen and dining areas in addition to signature Avani amenities.
The suites boast open-air terraces and range from cosy studios to larger multi-bedroom units with pool or garden views. At the same time, the pool villas starting from 195 square metres are perfect for large groups of friends and families to enjoy. And finally, the four-bedroom connecting double pool villas present 530 square metres of lush retreat that can host up to twelve adults and eight children.
The resort's pièce de résistance is undoubtedly the turquoise-tiled tropical lagoon pool with a swim-up bar that serves up delicious concoctions to the feel-good, chill-out music throughout the day. The outdoor kids' playground area hosts daily fun and educational activities, while fitness-minded guests will feel right at home at the AvaniFit Gym and at the numerous indoor and outdoor workout sessions offered by the AvaniFit team.
"We are especially pleased with the timing of the launch of Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas as it is perfectly aligned with the Thai government's plan to reopen Phuket travel to international tourism,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, the parent company of Avani Hotels & Resorts. "Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Resort is another exciting step for us as we continue to expand in these challenging times, providing our guests with direct access to one of Thailand's most renowned destinations."
Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas will join the brand's rapidly growing collection of 33 properties worldwide, including the recently opened Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort in Thailand and Avani Palm View Dubai Hotel & Suites in the UAE. The property will also be joined later in the year by Avani+ Khao Lak Resort and Avani+ Koh Lanta Resort, both in the south of Thailand.
