Happy Thai New Year!

Stay indoors on Monday 13th of April, if you happen to be in Thailand, or step out if you love water and getting wet! The Songkran festival, also known as Thailand Water Festival is celebrated throughout the country next week.

Songkran heralds the beginning of the solar year and is the most important festival for the people of Thailand. Here in the South of Thailand we celebrate Songkran for 1 day, however, Bangkok usually observes 3 days and Northern regions can celebrate up to 10 days.

Water plays an important role in the festivities, and the pouring of water is symbolic of the cleansing of the spirit, mind and body. The older tradition of Songkran was the bathing of Buddha images and young people poured scented water onto the hands of elders and parents as a mark of respect whilst seeking their blessing for the coming year. Nowadays, it is mostly an event of having a good time and getting wet.

Our team at Chef’s Table prepares for Sonkgran celebrations by organizing a sumptuous Thai & Seafood BBQ Buffet on the beach on Monday, 13th April. Please do not forget to join us, great food, relaxed atmosphere and live music await you. Advance bookings are recommended.

Sareeraya Villas & Suites wish you a joyous Thai New Year!

Real Weddings at Sareeraya

Sareeraya Villas & Suites offers a perfect setting for just about any occasion and every now and then we arrange outdoor celebrations, such as weddings, engagements and dinner receptions. Recently we hosted an unforgettable wedding to a delightful couple Shane and Nateesha, who immersed themselves into Thai culture in a combined Thai and Western wedding ceremony.

The couple was first blessed by Thai Monks at the resorts lounge. The monks chanted for luck and good fortune for the newlyweds and provided a spiritual element to the matrimonial day. After the monks departed, the bride and the groom gave their guests an opportunity to pour water over their hands and bestow their individual blessings.

The second part of the beautiful celebration of marriage contained a Western ceremony on the beach complete with toasting and an elephant ride. As the sun set, the newlyweds enjoyed a dinner reception with speeches, toasts and dancing. Flying paper wish lanterns that were set alight and released into the night sky ended the night perfectly.
