With more than five million people in the UK cycling more than once a week due to the proven health benefits and luxury travellers looking to Asia as a holiday destination for the year ahead, the boutique AKARYN Hotel Group has launched a series of new cycling tours through southern Thailand; fore fronted by their two tranquil five-star resorts, Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa and Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa. Whether guests want to challenge themselves on a mountain trail, pick up speed on long, winding roads or just enjoy a peaceful ride with breath-taking scenery, there is a route to suit everyone.
Catering for all ages and abilities, with an abundance of routes and varying terrain, there is a tour catering to all travellers; from enthusiastic cyclists and training triathletes to adventure-seekers or simply families wanting to escape to cycle the sandy walkways of Hua Hin and Phuket together. Guests will receive high-quality bicycles for use at their leisure during their stay, route maps (including pocket WI-FI map apps for the tech savvy), bicycle stands, cleaning and maintenance kits, and local guides will even be available to lead them on their journey.
At Aleenta Hua Hin, guests can immerse themselves in the culture of the region with a bike ride through the exotic countryside, passing traditional local villages, jungle-clad hills, verdant vineyards and golden beaches, before returning to the spacious suites and villas at Aleenta Hua Hin for an in-villa massage, to soothe aching muscles. Whilst, at Aleenta Phuket, guests can explore the idyllic landscape on smooth tracks nestled between lush green hills and the Andaman Sea, and even stop off for an authentic Thai cooking class at a local market whilst on the route.
Owning to AKARYN Hotel Groups main philosophy of luxury sustainable travel, well being and local experiences, these newly launched bicycle tour adventures are also the perfect choice for those travelling with a conscience, as all six of the group’s hotels and resorts are now single-use plastic-free, as of June 2019.
