The akyra 'Afternoon Afterglow' experience is a strictly adults-only play date inspired by the romance of Valentine's Day: a 'time out' that maximizes your time to cocoon, spoon and gaze at the moon by taking all the hard work and guess work out of the tropical getaway.
Rather, this is an experience dedicated to the fine art of the sure thing. Against a background of whispering palms, white sand, azure seas and golden sun, a blissful break of utter self-indulgence and pure indolence awaits the akyra Chura Samui guest.

Boutique hotel visionary Anchalika Kijkanakorn, owner and founder of the AHMS Collection which operates akyra, said she was delighted to see the resort getting back to its roots and embracing the brand name's true meaning.
"akyra is Sanskrit for the light or warmth of the sun," she said. "I wish all our past, current and future guests a very warm welcome and a most enjoyable afterglow."
The hip lifestyle resort offers 61 stylish residences on the quiet northern tip of Chaweng Beach and is the only adults-only property on the island. A DJ lends a chic, beach-lounge atmosphere three times a week, while showcasing gourmet dining experiences that take in authentic Thai, Japanese and South American cuisine.
Located five minutes from Samui International Airport, akyra is perfectly situated to dive into the heady nightlife of Chaweng or as a base to explore the island before retiring to an exceptionally chilled beachfront ambience.
The Afternoon Afterglow experience for three nights is available from now until 31 December 2013 for THB44,780 or USD1,450 for two persons with all the inclusions as listed above.
