Amazonas are two boutiques located on Chaweng Beach Road selling beachwear, sportswear, lingerie and cool fashion accessories.

The smaller Amazonas boutique is diagonally opposed to The Islander and is a tiny outlet (2x4m) that sells house-brand Sakura and Envy beachwear, bikinis and swimsuits created by local designers and produced in Thailand. Both stores’ products are quality items.
