Adults-only resort in Koh Samui

September 20, 2012

Akyra Chura Samui is offering Koh Samui's first adults-only resort from Nov 1 where children under 12 are not allowed.


KOH SAMUI, THAILAND: Building on its success as a trailblazer in stylish hotels for guests passionate about travel, the stylish Akyra Chura Samui is relaunching as a chic romantic retreat – and the first “adults only” resort on Chaweng Beach.

After celebrating its first birthday, the groundbreaking resort is broadening its appeal further to the ever-increasing number of travellers looking for a peaceful, romantic couples’ experience. This positioning ideally suits its unique location on the quieter northern stretch of the beach at Chaweng Noi.

Effortlessly blending contemporary hospitality with expressive style and individualism, Akyra Chura Samui offers 61 elegant suites and rooms mixing understated luxury with Asian chic, in addition to embracing a comfortable outdoors ethos, in-keeping with the resort’s passionate, spirited style.

The relaunch is the brainchild of Akaryn Hospitality Management Services (AHMS), the pioneering management company founded by boutique hotel aficionado Anchalika Kijkanakorn. AHMS manages akyra Chura Samui as well as owning and operating AKARYN Samui at Hanuman Bay, as well as the hugely successful, luxury boutique Aleenta resorts in Phuket and Hua Hin.

Akyra Chura Samui resident manager Colin Owen Healy said demand had grown quickly for more private, couples-oriented holiday experiences since launching and the change was a very natural progression to which the resort was perfectly suited.

The resort provides a stunning setting and great facilities – ideal for couples looking to get away from it all.

“Where better for romance to flourish than a resort passionate about offering exceptional beds, power showers and in-room music selections, married with first-class service, exceptional dining and couples’ facilities such as the his and hers meditation rooms,” he said.

“We also have a no children under 12 policy, which allows for a more tranquil, adult-focused resort. This is truly a first for Chaweng Beach and offers guests the haven of a peaceful retreat on Samui’s most popular beach”

To celebrate its romantic relaunch, the resort has introduced an exclusive five-nights’ romance experience at the special rate from THB 34,825 / USD 1,125. Be wooed with a decadent couples’ spa treatment, embrace true romance with a couples’ breakfast on the glorious beach teamed with a glass of Prosecco, and enjoy an intimate beachside gourmet dinner at the or a private table at Suikin.

This is where Chef Goro-san prepares original Japanese dishes such as Samui rock lobster tempura, light-charred yellow fin tuna and beef steak, foie gras and balsamic miso sauce. Couples will also discover Thai, Japanese and Southwestern American-inspired dining at the resort’s Barracuda Bar & Grill, located on the romantic soft white sands of Chaweng.

Couples can relax together with tai chi and yoga classes and shop for presents for each other at the resort’s stylish Galleria boutique. Romance is done stylishly at akyra Chura Samui.
