Full moon shining brightly over Phuket

June 29, 2013 Headline News, Hotel Feature No Comments Email Email

Feature HotelThailand is where the idea of full moon beach parties really began, on the island of Pha Ngan, and the idea has now spread to Phuket, where Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket is one of the first hotels to have its own full moon party, which is hosted on Karon Beach.

The event at Pha Ngan has become world-famous since the first was held in 1985, drawing thousands of revellers each month to the island’s Haad Rin town and beach and generating huge revenues.

Phuket, despite its enormous success as a tourist destination, has not previously emerged as major full moon party venue as there are relatively few of the prime beach resorts that have hotels with direct access to a large stretch of beach.

Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket is the only five-star property located directly on the beach at Karon, the others being on the landside of the beach road. The design of the resort is based around a water park, and that leads straight onto the beach.

The resort bases the party at its Cove beach restaurant, which is set directly on the beach, and which has awnings to protect against any inclement weather during the evening.

The next full moon party will be on the night of Tuesday 3 July, from 7 pm to 10 pm. A BBQ buffet with live music to dance to are the features of the evening, which is priced at Baht 1,090 per person, or Baht 1,590 if you would like a free flow of wine with your dinner. For youngsters between the ages of six and 12 years the price is only Baht 545, and there is no charge for those under six years old.

The resort management believes that Centara’s full moon party will establish Karon as the go-to destination for those who have no plans to travel to the Gulf of Thailand, where Pha Ngan is located.
