Explorar to make landfall on Koh Samui, Koh Phangan

Explorar Hotels & Resorts’ ongoing growth strategy in Asia will see the opening of two hotels in Thailand in 4Q2022, with both promising peaceful escapes in an adult-only environment.

The 125-key Explorar Koh Samui offers beachfront rooms, suites and pool villas as accommodation options, alongside an infinity pool with a swim-up bar; The Market all-day dining restaurant that serves up local, authentic and healthy meals; and a lively events, festivals and market nights for guests.

Explorar Koh Samui is one of two properties that Explorar Hotels & Resorts will open in Thailand later this year

The 75-key Explorar Koh Phangan presents guestrooms, suites and villas, as well as The Market restaurant serving regional cuisine made with locally-sourced ingredients, and vibrant events throughout the year aligned with the popular Full Moon party.

Unique to the Explorar brand is The Exchange, a co-working space that offers fast connectivity, charging facilities and premium Starbucks Coffee. The Exchange also serves as a meeting place for guests to socialise and grab a quick bite. A social hour is planned at this venue, during which guests can trade tales with each other or one of Explorars’ crew members.

Niels Huby, co-founder & head of development, Explorar Hotels & Resorts, said there has been “positive interest” in the company’s expansion in South-east Asia.

Tim Sargeant, co-founder & CMO, Explorar Hotels & Resorts, said targeting “millennial travellers via strong social media presence is key to the success of both new Explorar locations”. As such, Explorar has developed The Exchange Community, an online forum on its website where guests can post and share their stories about the best places to find local shops, excursions or off-the-beaten-track experiences to help others plan their trips ahead of arrival.

The two Thai signings join Explorar Treehouses El Nido in the Philippines.
