Let go of your worries with Thailand’s annual Loy Krathong Festivities!

October 18, 2014 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

Thailand’s annual Loy Krathong festival is just around the corner, and this year, three Amari properties, Amari Boulevard Bangkok, Amari Vogue Krabi and Amari Phuket, are offering special packages to give guests a chance to join in the beautiful celebration.

Loy Krathong is celebrated during the full moon of the 12th month of the Thai lunar calendar, this year falling on 7 November. Although there are many schools of thought as to why this is celebrated, today, it is believed that releasing the intricately decorated “krathong” is a way to show respect to the unnamed (29)water spirits and is a symbolic releasing of negative energy and bad luck. For this occasion, friends, families and couples gather to make their own “krathong”, traditionally constructed using a banana tree trunk as the base and then adorning it with flowers, candles and incense. With a float in hand, each will head to a river, stream or pond to make a wish and release the “krathong”, illuminating the rivers and streams with millions of the candles twinkling under the moonlight.

Whether heading to the city of Bangkok or planning a stay at the beach, guests can join in this unique celebration with a stay at Amari Boulevard Bangkok, Amari Vogue Krabi or Amari Phuket.

Amari Boulevard Bangkok’s Loy Krathong Package includes a two-night stay in a superior room with breakfast and welcome fruits and flowers upon arrival. On Loy Krathong night, guests will dine al fresco at the hotel’s Season Restaurant, after which they will be given a complimentary “krathong” that they can release either at the hotel’s pool or to take to join in the local festivities at one the city’s rivers. The package is valid for stays from 1 to 10 November 2014, with prices starting at 8,600 THB, excluding taxes and service charge. For more information, please visit www.amari.com/boulevard.

The Loy Kratong package at Amari Phuket includes a three-night stay in a superior ocean view room. On Loy Krathong evening, the hotel’s beachside restaurant, Rim Talay, will host a special Thai buffet dinner along with a special traditional performance.

To give guests a little time to sleep in after the fun, the package gives a guaranteed late check out until 16:00 and free airport transfers. The package is valid for stays from 4 to 9 November 2014, with the prices starting at 17,744 THB, excluding taxes and service charge. For more information, please visit www.amari.com/phuket.
