Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach celebrates Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year with Memorable Experience

Phuket, Thailand, 21st February 2018 – Two unforgettable culinary events were held this month at Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach, allowing guests to celebrate Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year.

The expert chefs from the resort’s The Andaman Kitchen and Big Fish restaurants created a series of stunning beachfront buffet dinners that reflected the exquisite ambience of each occasion.

Couples were able to celebrate their love for each other with a fantastic Valentine’s Day dinner on the pristine sands of Nai Yang Beach. To create the most romantic atmosphere, eight white silk cabanas were set up on the beach, providing perfect seclusion for the diners. In addition, a dedicated Valentine’s buffet was served up at Big Fish, the seafront restaurant.

Then on the night of Chinese New Year, a Hong Kong-style dining experience was created at The Andaman Kitchen. An extensive buffet spread featured an array of classical Cantonese dishes and festive favorites, providing the perfect celebratory evening for the whole family to enjoy.

Both these culinary events provided wonderful opportunities for guests to unwind with their loved ones, either for an intimate romantic evening or a fun-filled family celebration.

These events also showcased the resort’s ability to make magical memories and allow its guests to celebrate life’s major milestones even when they are far from home.

“At Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa, Nai Yang Beach we always aim to be innovative and exceed our guests’ expectations. With our fantastic culinary occasions, we have enabled our guests to celebrate the occasions that are most precious to them in unique and meaningful ways.

Laguna Phuket Marathon to provide authentic Phuket experience for 8,000+ athletes

PHUKET, Thailand – Organisers of South East Asia’s leading destination marathon, Laguna Phuket Marathon, will put Phuket food front and centre at this year’s event when the 8,000+ athletes will literally get a taste of Phuket from locally grown fruits that will be available at stations on the half marathon and full marathon courses.

In line with Phuket’s recognition by UNESCO as a ‘City of Gastronomy’, showcasing authentic local foods and supporting the local community is at the heart of the 2018 event where 80% of the runners attend from outside of Phuket.

“Laguna Phuket Marathon is very much a destination event. We have runners participating from more than 50 countries and many come with families and friends, and make a vacation around the event. In addition to the course, which takes in Phuket’s stunning coastline and the beautiful surrounds of Laguna Phuket, this year we really wanted to showcase Phuket further and chose to do this through food. Specifically, we will have locally grown fruits available at some of the stations on the run course this year,” said Mr. Roman Floesser, General Manager of the event’s organiser, Go Adventure Asia.

Also new this year is a Marathon Team Relay category, whereby four people run equal distances in a relay format over the full marathon distance, and improvements have been made to the half and full marathon courses which will make the event even more popular with runners throughout Thailand and from around the world.

For the 13th consecutive year, Laguna Phuket Marathon has been certified by AIMS (Association of International Marathons and Distance Races) and is a qualifying event for the world-famous Boston Marathon. This, together with the international-standard which saw Laguna Phuket Marathon win GOLD for “Best Amateur Sports Event of the Year in Thailand” at the 2017 Asia Sports Industry Awards, professional timing by Sportstats Asia and the world-class facilities of Laguna Phuket make Laguna Phuket Marathon one of the leading destination marathons in South East Asia which attracts runners from more than 50 countries this year.

“Laguna Phuket Marathon is in line with our own vision and philosophy – promoting a positive healthy lifestyle, working with the local community and developing long-term sustainable benefits for Phuket as a whole. It helps promote Phuket tourism, attracts quality tourists and showcases the beauty of Phuket’s Green Season. And now the event is held over two days it allows more people to come and compete and enjoy Phuket at the same time,” said Mr. Anthony Loh, Senior Assistant Vice President of Laguna Phuket.

“Like all of our destination events such as the Triathlon and Food & Music Festival, what makes the Marathon very special is that Laguna Phuket uses large-scale events like this as a platform to raise awareness and funds for many charitable causes and projects operated by “Laguna Phuket Foundation”. Last year, to celebrate Laguna Phuket’s 30th Anniversary, Laguna Phuket Foundation launched “Children First Fund” or “CFF” to support more than 400 orphans in seven orphanages in Phuket. We hope the contribution continues this year at all of Laguna Phuket events including the upcoming Marathon.

“Like every year, hundreds of Laguna Phuket associates and management will also run to help raise funds. We’d like to encourage participants, runners, spectators and everyone to help make donation, either by direct donation upon registration, in donation boxes at CSR booth at the Marathon or contact us at CSR@lagunaphuket.com.”

Speaking of the entries to date, Floesser commented, “The number of entries received so far is beyond our expectations. In fact, we received more than 1,000 entries within two weeks of last year’s event finishing alone. I expect the total this year to exceed last year’s record – we are planning for more than 8,000 runners.”

Held over two days, organisers expect more than 8,000 athletes to take part this year, breaking last years record of 7,000. In the afternoon of 9th June the event will start with the Kids Run (2km) followed by the 5km and 10.5km distances. At sunrise on 10th June the 21.097km (half marathon), 42.195km (marathon) and Marathon Team Relay runners will compete.

Prices start from 550 baht for the 5km distance. Early Bird prices finish on 28th February. Registrations can be made online at www.phuketmarathon.com/registration.
