Manathai Hotels & Resorts Launches “Songs for Songkran” Destination Adventures to Celebrate the Thai New Year
Leading boutique hospitality group MANATHAI Hotels & Resorts is set to welcome in the Thai New Year in style at its four resorts in Thailand after announcing a range of exclusive travel adventures to celebrate the traditional “Songkran” festival which is marked by water blessings.
Songkran is one of Thailand’s oldest festivals occurring in the hottest month of April when the dial reaches up to 40 degrees and the respite from some water splashing is usually very welcome. The origins of Songkran, meaning “to move into”, in Sanskrit falls during an auspicious lunar period each year and is celebrated by showing respect to elders.
The festival is Thailand’s longest holiday period when the whole country falls into a joyous, carefree few days of song, dance and of course water blessings or water throwing and is one of the best times to experience Thailand.
The “Songs For Songkran” travel adventures immerse guests in local lifestyle at the ideal time of the year, highlighted by special offers when guests can receive exceptional savings when visiting destinations such as Phuket, Khao Lak, Hua Hin and Koh Samui where MANATHAI has resorts.
These range from the design-focused MANATHAI Surin in Phuket where couples can cocoon and snuggle the days away before heading out to explore the beach and the hip Surin district of beach bars and restaurants to the family oriented MANATHAI Koh Samui or MANATHAI Khao Lak where children under 16 can eat, play and stay for free.

The MANATHAI Kids programme provides supervised facilities and activities as well as in-room amenities such as bunk beds, slippers and mini-bathrobes. Tailor-made family experiences are also a highlight.
The Songs For Songkran celebration special offers are valid from April 1-30, 2016 at the group’s four resorts in Thailand, all located in beach areas, with guests receiving a 35% discount off the full room rate with direct bookings to the MANATHAI website www.manathai.com.

Adding to the Thainess of the occasion are each resort’s signature Pad Thai restaurant, where one of the country’s most loved dishes is elevated to the realms of gourmet cuisine at the hands of highly skilled chefs and the procurement of the freshest locally sourced ingredients and seafood, plucked that day from the ocean.
