AKARYN Samui, which launches this month, is offering an "Intuitive Luxury for Athletes Package" including hi-carb meals, race-day and equipment transfers, complimentary massage and more.

At akyra Chura Samui, athletes' meals with high carbs and healthy fish from its Barracuda Beach and Suikin restaurants are the highlight of its "Triple Passions Package'' package, with transfers and assistance for triathletes also provided. Both resorts also will be delighted to provide post-race pampering at exclusive SPA IV for weary road warriors.

The triathlon starts at 7.25am on April 22, 2012 at Bophut Beach, just 10 minutes from AKARYN Samui's secluded beachfront setting at Hanuman Bay, between Chaweng and Choeng Mon beaches. It's also a short trip from akyra Chura Samui. Both resorts offer perfect peace and pristine surroundings plus cutting edge fitness centres for pre-race training and warm ups, meditation visualization and whatever else athletes need to get in the zone. Both also ensure athletes and their equipment will be transferred to the race starting area in plenty of time.

AKARYN Samui and akyra Chura Samui are both part of Thailand boutique hotel pioneer Anchalika Kijkanankorn's Akaryn Hospitality Management Services (AHMS) group, which also includes the renowned Aleenta resorts at Phang Nga, Phuket and Pranburi, near Hua Hin.

Ms Kijkanakorn said the special packages would give athletes an edge and help them achieve their peak performance. "My husband Stephane is an ironman and triathlete, so I understand how much preparation goes into these races and what a test of mind, body and spirit they are.

"AKARYN's Intuitive Luxury approach means we understand what athletes need and we will do everything we can to help them have the perfect race and set a personal best, no matter what their level. akyra Chura Samui is a younger and more active resort, all about discovering passions. I know how passionate triathletes are about their sport and I wish all competitors the best of luck. If there is anything else our team can do to assist, please don't hesitate to ask."
