To heighten Phuket Province’s status as a “City of Gastronomy” conferred by the UNESCO, the inaugural Food & Music Festival will set the stage to create yet another lifestyle destination event from Friday 3 March to Sunday 5 March 2017 within Laguna Phuket resort complex in celebration of its 30th Anniversary in 2017.
“CHILDREN FIRST FUND” A STEP AHEAD IN EMPOWERING PEOPLE
To mark the resort’s significant 30-year milestone in 2017, Laguna Phuket will present an exciting year-long campaign with several keynote events at Asia’s premier destination resort, with its three-kilometre pristine Bangtao Beach at northwestern Phuket Island, Thailand. Staying true to its ethos of Empowering People throughout its celebrations, a Children First Fund with the objective of “Nourishing Hearts, Inspiring Dreams” has specially been set up. Part proceeds of the key events will be contributed in support of the nutrition of needy children in Phuket orphanages.
