Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin showcased its superlative food and beverage quality, as well as renowned outdoor party venues by hosting a welcome dinner for 180 travel representatives from the German speaking market who were participating in the Hua Hin leg of DER Touristik Campus Live in Thailand 2017. The workshop was organized by Department of  Sales Promotion, the CAMPUS Team of the DER Touristik GmbH & Co. KG, Europe’s leading tour and travel operator under REWE Group to provide agents with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the hotel destination in order to reinforce their product knowledge and increase sales subsequently.

David Martens, General Manager of Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin, said: “This is a great opportunity for our resort to be underlined as one of the best venues in Hua Hin to host several styles of social events. Blessed with the country’s finest manicured garden, our resort offers a magnificent space for cocktail parties or a brunch overlooking the picturesque greeneries of animal-shaped topiaries. And while beach parties will never go out of style, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin is set on a prime stretch of Hua Hin’s white, sandy beach, catering well to picture perfect beachfront weddings or private beachfront dinner functions, which can be arranged in any style to your heart’s desire.”

The memorable evening in Hua Hin started when 180 German-speaking travel representatives arrived to the resort and were warmly welcomed by a cocktail reception in the topiary garden.

Guests were served welcome drinks made from butterfly-pea flowers giving a blue colouring effect, along with a selection of wine, beer and soft drinks. Stylish canapés designed especially for this event, including coconut flavoured minced chicken salad on crispy rice cracker, Mini pizzas with tom yum shrimp, Thai pomelo salad in a crispy cup, and Mango sticky rice sushi, were served to delight the guests’ taste buds amidst the relaxing atmosphere of traditional Thai music played by a stringed instrument called “Khim”. During the serving of canapés and drinks, site inspection was also available for the agents to view a variety of the resort’s iconic colonial-style room types.

After the garden’s networking opportunity, guests were ushered to the welcome dinner party at the beachfront COAST Beach Club & Bistro and by the Colonial Pool. The themed “Thai Street Food” presentation was arranged to resemble traditional Thai street food stalls, where the food is easy to eat standing or sitting and served in a traditional way using containers made out of banana leaves or a coconut. At this special dinner setting, the agents had a chance to experience and learn more about some of the “Heritage Cuisine of Hua Hin” which ties in with the historical aspects of the resort. Delightful savoury items freshly concocted and served at the food stalls included Phad Thai with chicken, Crispy fish cake and spring rolls, Chicken coconut soup served in a whole coconut, BBQ pork skewers with dipping sauce, Assorted grilled satay with peanut sauce, followed by popular desserts like Thai coconut ice cream and Deep fried banana. Traditional and western entertainment was provided during the evening.

Kevin Keogh, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, and management representatives of DER Touristik GmbH & Co. KG remarked: “We are in awe and utterly impressed with fine event facilities and quality of cuisine Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin has offered. The resort is definitely the crown jewel of the resort town with so much potential to attract European travellers, especially those looking to explore the myriad of natural and cultural attractions that Hua Hin has to offer. With superb resort facilities and a great location right in the city, combined with a large drop of Thai hospitality, we believe that guests will find the resort the perfect place to spend a memorable holiday or an eminent venue to host all kinds of special events such as private parties and weddings on the beach.”

“Ultimately, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin has demonstrated today to an extensive crowd of travel influencers in the German-speaking market that we are the best choice of luxurious accommodation with finest facilities and quality services in Hua Hin, Thailand. In the near future, we hope to welcome more German guests from these agents who will now be able to recommend our resort to their customers from their first-hand experience of this event,” David Martens, concluded.
