Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket press releases
Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket Splashes Joy this Songkran
17 March, 2014
Phuket, Thailand – Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket launches its Dusit Songkran Splash promotion to celebrate the Thai Solar New Year throughout the entire month of April!
The promotion includes 15% discount off Dusit Best Available Rates, inclusive of complimentary breakfast for a minimum consecutive two night’s stay.
Guests will also receive a Songkran Survival Kit to enjoy the festive spirit. The kit includes all the essentials for water play, including a water pistol, powder, Dusit branded towel and t-shirt, a bowl for splashing water and an etiquette card with all the Do’s and Don’t’s to make the most of the festivities.
On April 13th, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket will also hold a full Songkran festival programme, beginning with a celebratory religious morning session where guests will experience offering food to monks and a holy water blessing, the origin of the Songkran water festival. The gentle pouring of fragrant water over the hands or the shoulders of a respected elder is a gesture to wash away bad luck and pay respect. Over the years, this tradition has become the fun-filled water festival we know today.
Continuing through to the afternoon, activities will include Thai folk dancing, a Thai Martial Arts show, a cooking competition and traditional fun games. In the evening, there will be a spectacular Songkran Thai New Year buffet dinner, showcasing the exciting flavours of Thailand’s four regions. The evening will also include Thai classical music, a Miss Songkran contest and performances by our resident band in a temple-fair atmosphere by the hotel’s poolside. The buffet dinner is priced at THB 1,290++ per person.
