Amazing Exhibition : Daily at Lamai Night Plaza

Myanmar knife art is an amazing technique almost unique to this lately isolated country. Of the few remaining practising artists Mr. KoKo Aung and his father Soe are undoubted masters. KoKo learned his trade painting on the streets of Yangon (Rangoon) from the age of 12 and his various youtube clips have amassed over 1 million views…see below.

Earlier this year Amy Village became the first resort on Koh Samui to offer the Lifestraw drinking water purifying system for its guests. Water quality exceeds that of all locally available bottled water and the system is guaranteed by the World Health Organisation to 99.999 percent purity.

These same units are being placed, in ever increasing numbers, in remote villages in third world countries where availability of clean drinking water is a life-threatening problem.

In Amy Village we have installed one in an attempt to do our bit to reduce plastic waste. Possibly the biggest threat to our planet at the moment. We have for many years previously, as is the case with most hotels and resorts around the world, provided bottled water for customers. Now we offer re-usable containers that customers can fill themselves and chill in their refrigerators. It is estimated that pollution from one-time-use plastic bottle waste will be reduced by some 4-5000 pieces annually.

Amy Village is situated opposite Tesco Lotus Lamai should anyone wish to view the system in operation or sample the water.

Guest Review Awards

In 2016 Amy Village was awarded a superb 8.9 from Booking.com in their  Guest Review Awards for that year. We are continually striving to improve our standards and facilities here at Amy Village. During 2018 we have undergone some quite extensive refurbishment and modernisation in the hope of making our customers holiday experience even more enjoyable.
