03/May/09 April month… Indeed!... a very busy month…
Another Songkran has passed...
Despite the economic crisis and the latest political problems, it was business as usual with a full house over the Easter & Songkran week.
As in previous years Pimalai GM, Khun Franck, led his team on April 13th, for the annual Songkran Day blessing of those guests who had gathered at the pool area….From a peaceful blessing it ended up with a very enjoyable and thoroughly soaking water fight!
Keeping the momentum going...
The political problems did not deter a group of high-end travel agents from accepting an invitation to participate in an educational trip to Pimalai... showing that traveling on vacation to Koh Lanta & Pimalai is still very safe. The 12 selected agents lead by Lisa Rawlings, our UK Sales & Marketing representative, were treated to a “bubbly” cruise on the way to Pimalai and, amongst all their other activities, they further developed their cooking skills by mastering the preparation of some famous Thai recipes under the watchful guidance of Khun Apichai - Executive Chef.
A monsoon season that is just a Green Season...!
There are definitely certain advantages for holidaying here in the “Green” season and more people are selecting to visit Thailand at that time. This is especially true for those who wish to avoid the intense heat and burning sun and those who like a more peaceful and leisurely holiday without having to battle crowds of fellow tourists.
Yes, there is a greater chance of having rainy days but on average, at the Pimalai location, these only account for about 6 to 7 days per month. The resort is in the lee of both mainland Thailand and also of Koh Lanta’s spinal mountain range and is thus protected from much of the stormy weather that is experienced in central and northern Thailand. When it does rain it generally arrives in the form of short intense showers and an hour or two later the sky is clear again. It is recognized that, globally, climates are changing and wide variations from the normal conditions do at times occur. Kantiang Bay, where the resort is located, is sheltered enough to allow swimming almost all year around; in fact we probably raise the red warning flag only about 20 times throughout the green season. If you do elect to visit us during this period, and we encourage you to do so, we have enough activities to keep you occupied indoors if it is raining and outdoors when conditions allow. Indoor activities include taking our ever popular Thai cooking lessons, experiencing the ultimate in rejuvenation at our spa, working-out in our gym and sports complex, borrowing reading materials, DVDs or games from the library, sending e-mails, etc... and nobody will object to you having a peaceful nap with the soothing sound of rain dancing on the roof. Outdoor activities include, playing tennis, body-surfing in the sea, swimming in the warm waters of our pools, visiting a nearby national marine park, elephant trekking, taking a mangrove discovery excursion, touring the island and visiting the local markets. The beach is always popular with joggers, strollers and beachcombers. For photographers this is also a good time to take photographs of seascapes, brilliant sunsets, wonderful cloud effects, lush green flora, etc... By the way the temperature never (“never”? How about “rarely”) drops below a comfortable 30 degrees!
