Akyra opened in mid 2011, and is the epitome of Japanese style.
Soft grays and neutral tones, linen, simple artwork, screens, wood and screed floors, bamboo and slanted roofs all add to the Zen feel. The open-air bathrooms are remarkable, and the one-bedroom suites feature enormous granite bathtubs with rain showers, double vanities, bathrobes and body products. The rooms are set in steel, glass and wood modern Japanese-style units, along a path leading to the Barracuda Bar and Grill, pool and the beach. On street level, Suikin Japanese restaurant offers Japanese cuisine, and cooking classes are on offer daily with demonstration in either Thai or Japanese cooking for 1,000 baht per person. The one-bedroom suites have a separate lounge and are excellent value for money. Entering Chaweng from the Choeng Mon side, The Akyra is on a hill before Samui International Hospital, on the sea side of the road.
