Leading hospitality chain, Avani Hotels & Resorts has reported the signing of two new resorts in the Krabi, Thailan’s growing southern resort destination. This would commemorate the brand's continued growth in Thailand. The two existing resorts will undergo major renovations to bring the properties in line with Avani standards which offer guests interesting social spaces and stylish guestrooms. The two hotels will be fully rebranded as Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort, set to launch by July 2020, and Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, which will open its doors under the new branding in December 2019.
Offering a little extra touch with every stay, Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort boasts 85 rooms nestled within pristine wooded parklands, offering stunning sea views from its gentle hills with direct access to a secluded white sand beach adjacent to the renowned Klong Dao Beach.
