“Dusit Dream Holiday" winner earns a magnificent 5-day stay at Dusit Thani Maldives
Bangkok, 19 February 2013
World renowned Thai hospitality group Dusit International has revealed the grand prize winner of its lavish “Dusit Dream Holiday” social media contest. Tatchakorn Yeenang from Thailand, currently living in Japan, won with his stunning photo entitled “Tokyo Mahanakorn,” a moving image symbolising the bond between grandmother and grandson.
Tatchakorn has won a five-night stay in a Beach Villa at the luxurious Dusit Thani Maldives, which features a private deck area and plunge pool. Daily free breakfast and round-trip seaplane tickets for two between Malé and Dusit Thani Maldives are also included.
The contest engaged Dusit International’s online community across all properties, encouraging them to submit images of their dream vacation based on three separate themes: City Extravaganza, Beach Getaway and Cultural Escapade. The group’s first social media campaign was a successful one, resulting in a significant increase in the fan base of each participating property’s social media pages. As a result, there will be four social media contests to come this year, providing captivating content for fans and the opportunity to win a variety of fantastic prizes.
More than 300 qualifying photo entries were received, with each participant hoping to win the extravagant prize. The winner was chosen by a select panel of Dusit International’s senior management, with the caption accompanying the image ultimately determining the winner.
“Visiting Maldives and staying in a high-end resort like Dusit is like a dream for me, but it's finally become true!” says contest winner, Tatchakorn Yeenang. “I'd like to thank Dusit International for this special New Year gift. This is a big opportunity to improve my photography skills and of course, I'll share lots of beautiful photos with you all.”
Perfectly situated on the exquisite Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Dusit Thani Maldives is comprised of 100 exclusive villas and residences, along with three restaurants, two bars and the Dusit signature Devarana Spa. The resort is hedged by a vibrant coral reef, white sandy beaches and a turquoise lagoon that fosters an idyllic and relaxing retreat.
