Phuket’s Andara Resort & Villas Celebrates Loy KrathongHeld on the full moon night of the 12th lunar month, Loy Krathong is a time to pay respects to Buddha and thank the Goddess of Water, Phra Mae Khongkha.  The festival’s name translates as ‘floating basket’, and each year thousands of krathong floats are released along Thailand’s waterways, adorned with candles, incense and money. Wishes are made and as the krathongs drift away, this symbolises letting go of grievances and starting afresh.  Thais believe that the longer the candle burns, the better next year will be.  While an old proverb holds that when a boy and girl float a krathong together, they will be lovers in this life or the next.

Each guest also received a Loy Krathong which they launched on the pool outside the restaurant in observance of the celebration.
