Avani gives nod to Thai heritage with new resort
Following the successful launch of Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, Avani Hotels & Resorts is adding Avani+ Koh Lanta Resort in Krabi into the brand’s collection that offers back to nature and island escape experience.
With 92 guest rooms and private pool villas, the resort redesign is led by a Thai-based PIA design studio that draws inspiration from the heritage of Sriraya, or Lanta Old Town — incorporating Thai roots as the base of the resort’s concept and blending the history of Moken, or Sea Gypsies, Muslim and Chinese origins. All signifies a harmonious community once at the head of a trading port that connects Krabi to Penang and Singapore.
The renewed guest rooms and private pool villas incorporate the hand-drawn wallpaper of Melayu motifs that derives from the traditional pattern in the Malaysian woodcarving introduced to the Thai people from the trading days and classic chinoiserie floor tiles.
