26-03-2008: The curtain falls for the old beach mini club

current view from the Premium Sea View B buildings

To ensure that our guests in the rooms that were formerly known as the Premium rooms (without the Sea view extension) can also have an unobstructed view of the Beach and Sea, we have decided that the old Sweet Beach bar and mini club had to go. Most of it functions had been taken over by our new beach bar in the heart of the resort earlier this year, so recently it was mostly being used as a linnen / laundry room. Now that this place has been demolished and these cheaper Premium Room have actually become the rooms that offer the most privacy, as well as an excellent view, we will label them as Deluxe Sea View B-building rooms from now on, to indicate the equality, if not superiority, to our existing Deluxe Pool / Sea View rooms next door.

26-11-2007: Loy Kratong celebrations

table with krathongs for the Loy Kratong celebrations

The Loy krathong full moon festival was this year celebrated on November 25th.

During this festival it is tradition that people light candles and incense sticks on a "Kratong" and float that on a river or sea to get rid of the bad 'ballast'.

When lovers float their Krathongs and those float next to each other for a long time, then it means good luck and love for the happy couple. The safest way to avoid the risk of the krathongs floating in opposites directions is to share a single krathong, as demonstrated by our former hostess and her Thai fiancee.
