Basking in the sun-soaked shores of Phang Ka beach, on Koh Samui’s quieter Taling Ngan side, the new rooms and villas by Avani’s premium brand Avani+ feel just like your own private beach house. Whitewashed wooden ceilings, a private deck with infinity pool and cozy linens may tempt you to stay in-villa, but you really shouldn’t—free access to kayaks, paddleboards and mountain bikes offer adventures to nearby mangroves, waterfalls and villages. For a scenic day trip, hop on a longtail boat and snorkel off the pristine white sands of Koh Madsum and Koh Tan just 15 minutes away. Essence restaurant offers dinner with beach views, while drinks are poured in the cutest cocktail truck, a batik-patterned Combi van that parks itself poolside. — E.B.; doubles from $127.
