Hoping to target honeymooners and romance vacationers, the tourism industry in Asia is implementing more adults-only features.

The Akyra Chura Samui luxury hotel will ban children under the age of 12 from November 1 due to increasing demand by vacationers for more private, couples-oriented holidays. The hotel is the second resort in Thailand to accept bookings only for adults.

Adults-only resorts are increasingly popular in other parts of the world, in particular the Caribbean islands, with several hotel chains such as the Sandals group, Secret Resorts, and Ibero Hotels & Resorts targeting adult travelers who prefer to go on a romantic vacation without children.
