Avani+ Samui Resort

4.5* out of 5 stars

The only resort to occupy secluded Panka Bay on the southwest coast of Koh Samui, Avani+ Samui Resort is somewhere you can truly switch off. It's great for couples and families alike, with Panka Bay offering a traditional atmosphere far from that of the island's popular party beaches.

The 58 contemporary, bright rooms and villas at Avani+ Samui Resort are set within tranquil leafy gardens and include one and two-bedroom beachfront pool villas. Make the most of waking up in paradise with a coffee on your private balcony or terrace or with a swim in your private pool. There are also two communal pools at Avani+ Samui Resort – one for the family and one that's adults-only. Along with a fitness centre and a spa.

The resort's main restaurant is open-air and overlooks one of the pools, as well as gorgeous Panka Bay. It serves meals inspired by Thai and international flavours and is joined by a poolside drinks truck for post-dinner cocktails. There's also a rooftop lounge where you can admire the sunsets.

Things to do at Avani+ Samui Resort

Avani+ Samui Resort is designed for recharging the batteries. Treat yourself to a signature treatment at the spa or simply chill out by the pool. You might also be tempted to explore the area's stunning waters by going snorkelling, kayaking, or stand-up paddle boarding. Bikes are also available.

Found along the bay are traditional fishing boats and speed boats which journey out to tourist spots such as the Five Islands. Guests are also entitled to a free morning longtail boat island trip to a picturesque quiet beach. Swim in crystal-clear waters and take photos to immortalise your paradise experience before the boat returns you to the resort in time for lunch.

Plenty of other island attractions are within easy reach, such as the Na Muang Waterfalls and Laem Sor Pagoda Buddhist temple. And should you want some nightlife, the shuttle bus journey to the party beaches of Chaweng and Lamai takes between 30 and 45 minutes. While around an hour’s drive away from the resort is Samui Airport.
