This one has been at the top of our wish list since we interviewed AKARYN’s inspirational founder Anchalika Kijkanakorn.
Slated to open in June 2016, Arovada by AKARYN will be the first private island wellness retreat in Cambodia, expect to find personal trainers working alongside monks in a mix of health and spirituality. The resort will join a luxurious and stylish portfolio - AKARYN Hotel Group already has properties in Phuket, Hua Hin, Koh Samui and Chiang Mai.
Built to preserve existing trees and virgin jungle, guests will be surrounded by nature. In a tropical island setting. The design of the 40 villas is spear-headed by fashion icon Kenzo. So what will the man who gave fashion the camouflaged print do with a hotel? Apparently create “a resort designed from the ground up to disappear into its environment and leave the lightest of footprints”. Kenzo has embraced the concept of ‘outdoor living in’, taking his inspiration from the unspoiled location and stunning views over the Gulf of Thailand.
