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!

Koh Samui – Our paradise

Koh Samui, occasionally also referred as Ko Samui or just Samui, is one of Thailand’s favorite island getaways and the third largest island in Thailand. It is located in the Gulf of Thailand bordering the South China Sea in the Pacific Ocean, and measures only 21 km at its widest point and 25 km at its longest and is therefore very easy to get around.

Koh Samui was voted one of the world’s best island holiday destinations 2013 by Travel + Leisure’s readers and it is no wonder. Easy to reach from Bangkok, Phuket or overseas, Koh Samui with its swaying coconut trees and crystal clear water, is a popular place for holidaymakers.

Apart from the main activities; sunbathing, swimming and relaxing, there are many attractions to explore and experience. Elephant riding, golf, sailing, island hopping, snorkeling and diving, local markets and attractions, glittering temples, forest pools and cascading waterfalls, exotic shows and entertainments, all these things plus much, much more await on this amazing island of tropical dreams.
