Explorar Hotels & Resorts will expand its Asian portfolio with two openings in the fourth quarter of 2022 in Thailand.
Relocations to the popular island destination of Koh Samui and the cultural island experience of Koh Phangan are part of the hotel group’s continued rapid growth strategy in Asia.
Explorar Koh Samui offers 125 rooms, suites and beachfront pool villas, set against the bustling backdrop of Mae Nam Beach in Bo Phut. The resort has an incredible infinity pool that overlooks the sea with a swim-up bar, and The Market, an all-day restaurant that focuses on being local, authentic, and healthy.
The second resort, Explorar Koh Phangan, is located on Haad Rin Nai Beach and offers 75 contemporary rooms, suites, and villas, with a mix of sea views and lush gardens with terraces or balconies. It will have its own restaurant The Market. Both properties will focus on a peaceful escape with an adult-only environment (16+).
Unique to the Explorar Hotels & Resorts brand, “The Exchange”, a social workspace for the digital nomad, with fast connectivity, charging facilities and premium Starbucks coffee. The exchange also serves as a vibrant hangout with food and drink.
