Koh Samui, Thailand
In addition to dazzling palm-fringed and white-sand beaches to unwind on, neighbouring islands to explore, and cultural sights for the Instagram feed – visiting Koh Samui during New Year’s Eve presents a bonus for guests with the perfect backdrop of fireworks over the ocean.

Amari Koh Samui, located on a secluded stretch of Chaweng Beach, offers a New Year’s Eve Package, which includes a New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner on 31 December 2017, round-trip transfers to and from Samui International Airport, daily breakfast at Amaya Food Gallery and more.

Another great destination to ring in the New Year is on the powdery white sands of Patong Beach in Phuket, which will turn into large party zones filled with live entertainment, music, fireworks displays and food stalls that stay open until dawn. Before midnight strikes, guests can walk along the beach, soak in the fun atmosphere and be surrounded by happy revellers from around the globe looking forward to that exciting countdown to the New Year.

Amari Phuket, located on a secluded peninsula at the tip of Patong Beach, is putting on an evening of music, dancing and fun at Rim Talay restaurant.
