Lifestyle Curators for Thailand + Southeast Asia

A fleet of classic British scooters transports Avani+ Resort guests to parts unknown

Check in to your room, check out of the mundane. Road romantics arriving at two of Avani+ Resorts in Thailand can hit the ground running with a new seamless rental service courtesy of Scomadi, a modern classic scooter brand.

This first-of-its-kind partnership between the Thai hotel brand and the British pioneering scooter maker will see the service rolled out at Avani+ Samui Resort and Avani+ Hua Hin Resort. As part of the campaign, the resorts have created a digital itinerary for savvy, independent travellers who value personalisation, off-the-radar discovery and experiences with a sense of place. With the wind in their hair, explorers will zip from scenic gems to hidden cultural treasures and everything in between.

Guests will be riding the latest Scomadi Turismo Technica 125i scooter, optional waterproof backpack available upon request, equipped with a reusable water bottle and refreshments. A digital itinerary will be accessible through digital maps, allowing guests to get straight onto the road via their gadgets. Riders are recommended to have their valid travel insurance and international driving license prepared before hop on and ride off.

On its peaceful beach on Taling Ngam Bay, Avani+ Samui Resort ( is the perfect base to explore the treasures of the island and aboard the Scomadi Turismo, the jungle roads await. Some of the hotspots on the two-wheeled ride include the Laem Sor Pagoda and Wat Khao Chedi statue with its golden glow. Guests can discover fascinating and diverse cultures from a little Moslem village while exploring Hua Thanon Market and the Secret Buddha Garden, then venture out in the nature to admire Na Muang Waterfall and Taling Ngam Beach and soak in all the fresh air before ending the day of exploration in time for sunset at the island’s newest SEEN Beach Club.

Meanwhile, a short drive from Bangkok, Avani+ Hua Hin Resort ( located in the royal seaside town is a motorbike-friendly destination that feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the Thai capital. Culture vultures can delve deep into Thai history with an excursion to Klai Kangwon Palace — a former royal residence adjacent to some of the country’s best national parks. Equally impressive is the beachside Mrigadayavan Palace constructed entirely of teak wood amidst picnic-ready gardens — the perfect pit stop en route to the less travelled parts of the country.

Near the border with Myanmar, a scenic 1.5-hour ride from Hua Hin lies the 1,000-year-old forest that makes up Kaeng Krachan National Park. Within its borders, travellers get to explore the spectacular Pa La-U waterfall cascading down 16 levels, cool down in its deep pools, observe abundant wildlife and rare birds and spend the day surrounded by pristine nature. In and around Hua Hin, guests can immerse themselves in the local way of life with visits to Plearn Wan, a themed shopping complex; Cicada, an open-air art and craft market; or Seen Space, a beachfront shopping mall and eatery.

To enjoy ultimate adventures on the modern classic Scomadi scooters, guests staying at Avani+ Samui Resort and Avani+ Hua Hin Resort are encouraged to make scooter rental inquiries at the time of booking or upon check-in.
