Amari: The colours and rhythms of modern Asian hospitality
Awaken to the sunís first rays breaking over a centuries-old mountain city at dawn. Feel the sand under your feet as the Andaman tide gently rolls in. Bask in the warmth of a smile waiting behind an open door, or the taste of a local dish prepared to perfection. Watch as a tropical island landscape unfolds in full colour. Listen to the pulse of an urban heartbeat that energises the night.
Break away to a tropical tempo
Cushioned by soft white sands and kissed by sparkling waters, Koh Samui is one of the most idyllic islands in the Gulf of Thailand. Set among the palm trees of Chaweng, the islandís most popular beach, rests Amari Palm Reef. Combining the best of Thai traditions and modern elegance, Amari Palm Reef is the perfect location for your island experience: whether lounging on the sun-soaked beaches, savouring the innovative cuisine of one of Koh Samuiís best Italian restaurants or weaving through the vivid coral with a PADI dive instructor. Surrounded by the style and comfort of Amari, you will quickly find yourself immersed in the brilliance of tropical Thailand.
The comfort of modern Thailand
Bright, modern and comfortable: all of the hotelís 188 rooms are spacious and quiet, decorated in a contemporary Thai style, with beautiful views. The Superior and Deluxe rooms offer plenty of space and light with private balconies overlooking the garden or the pool. The Family Duplex, with 37 square metres, a large bed on the ground floor and two singles upstairs, provide space and serenity for parents travelling with children. The larger, more elegant Junior Suites offer views of the sea, and are perfect for quiet evenings sitting out and listening to the beat of the waves.
The flavours of paradise
Whether you are craving seafood by the beach or just a light afternoon snack, Amari Palm Reef has a variety of wining and dining options to fit any mood.
Enjoy refreshing drinks by the pool or sip a creative cocktail at Bar@C or the Beach Bar. When hunger strikes, amble down to Amariís casual yet refined Italian eatery, Prego, to enjoy wood-fired pizzas and handmade pastas from Amariís resident Italian chef. To set a romantic mood, make your way to Merantť for top-notch Asian and international cuisine. Spend the evening enjoying fresh seafood and fine wines while gazing out on the moon-drenched ocean.
Make new discoveries
Just beyond the beach, Koh Samui ascends into tropical jungle. Rent a motorcycle or a jeep and take a day to explore the nearby waterfalls, or drive down the scenic coastal road. Grab your clubs for a round of golf at one of the nearby courses, or if you have your children with you, bring them to visit the butterfly farms and monkey theatre for an afternoon of entertainment.
If you are interested in off-shore exploration, rent a speedboat and check out some of the nearby islands. The Ang Thong National Marine Park islands, just west of Koh Samui, are bursting with unique undersea life and some of the most colourful dive and snorkel sites in Asia.
