Maldives and Koh Samui Join OUTRIGGER DISCOVERY Programme

PHUKET — Premier beach resort company OUTRIGGER Resorts & Hotels recently announced the expansion of its exclusive OUTRIGGER DISCOVERY loyalty programme with two new, breathtaking destinations: OUTRIGGER Maldives Maafushivaru Resort and OUTRIGGER Koh Samui Beach Resort.

OUTRIGGER DISCOVERY, part of the world’s largest loyalty programme for independent hotel brands, has 25 million members in more than 800 hotels and resorts across 40 brands in 100 countries. Travellers who join the programme receive VIP recognition, thoughtful benefits and generous rewards.

With these two new additions, guests can embark on their next adventure and experience two highly acclaimed and sought-after resorts:

OUTRIGGER Maldives Maafushivaru Resort offers the epitome of barefoot luxury. This five-star retreat is nestled in the heart of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise waters and white-sand beaches. Guests can choose from lavish overwater or beachfront villas, savour culinary delights at four restaurants, plus bars and cafes, or rejuvenate at the spa, library lounge and boutique. Adventure enthusiasts can delight in a fully equipped PADI and SSI dive centre, learn from the on-site marine biologist, embark on island excursions and enjoy outdoor movie nights.

OUTRIGGER Koh Samui Beach Resort offers a sanctuary where old world charm and modern sophistication meet on Lamai beach. The resort features spacious accommodations designed for couples and families alike. A highlight is the immaculate Voyager 47 lounge retreat with all-day drinks and quiet reading areas. Guests can start their day with breakfast at Mala Kitchen followed by relaxation and dining at the beachfront Edgewater restaurant and bar — a perfect place for poolside relaxation and to watch Samui’s famous fire show performance in the evenings. There are many activities for families with children: the Coral Kids Club, five swimming pools, children’s waterslide, games room and the resort’s newest indoor activity, Koh Samui laser tag. Guests can enjoy signature experiences such as visiting the only ethical elephant sanctuary in Koh Samui, the Elephant Haven Sanctuary.

The award-winning GHA DISCOVERY loyalty programme ensures members receive exclusive rates, room upgrades and DISCOVERY Dollars (D$) for their stays at OUTRIGGER and other GHA DISCOVERY hotels. Whether travellers desire the crystal-clear waters of the Maldives or the vibrant culture of Thailand’s 2nd-largest island, OUTRIGGER DISCOVERY ensures highly rewarding stays for its members.To celebrate the expansion and reward members, OUTRIGGER encourages registration for the GHA DISCOVERY “Multiple Stays, Multiplied Rewards” promotion.
