Hotel Renovations


Amari Vogue Krabi, November 2019

Amari Vogue Krabi is undergoing a major transformation aimed at enhancing guest experience. Following its reopening in November 2019, the hotel looks forward to showcasing exciting upgrades and improvements. 

Guests can look forward to a full enhancement of the grounds, public areas, facilities, guest rooms and suites to achieve a contemporary and updated interpretation of the signature Thai Lanna-style architecture, landscaping and interiors. The updated design of the hotel will be inspired by the four key elements of Krabi - sunsets, boats, forests and ocean.  

All guest rooms will be transformed with the addition of contemporary custom furniture and fittings and updated technology to complement Amari’s signature teak details, panelling and artwork. The hotel is also introducing seven new rooms, as well as four new two-bedroom pool villas. A new ocean-side restaurant and a tapas lounge will increase Amari Vogue's culinary options and an all-new Breeze Spa will enhance treatment offerings. The hotel is also opening a new Voyager Lounge which will offer a comfortable air-conditioned cool-off area.

Guests will be pleased to hear that Amari's much-loved original art, murals, elephant sculptures and water features will be preserved, with the addition of new specially-commissioned artwork to complement the original collection.
