The hotel, which has been in the works since 2017, is Avani's 24th property globally and its sixth to launch in Thailand.

A lifestyle division of international hospitality operator Minor Hotels, Avani was founded in 2012 with an emphasis on improving sleep health, creating effective social spaces, and providing locally sourced food.

"We are excited to confirm the Avani + Samui opening, the second addition to our Avani + portfolio, providing guests with our signature Avani + experience for their beach getaway," said Dilip Rajakarier, CEO at Minor Hotels.

He continued: "Avani+ Samui also embraces an eco-friendly culture to help Samui maintain its natural beauty for future generations."
