Some 350 guests attending the event, including the Governor of Phuket, Vice Governors, the Army Area Commander, ambassadors, travel agents, corporate personnel and local media joined the event, which included a presentation highlighting Phuket’s rich history and many in-land and beach destinations.

Participants were also treated to live music, plus a whole spread of local fare to sample, prepared by the hotel’s team of highly experienced chefs.

Shortly after sunset, the festivities culminated in a fabulous dinner celebration, when the guests enjoyed a sumptuous set dinner, along with a whole evening of local entertainment. Included in the entertainment line up were traditional musical performances by students Sian Nan and Satta Kinnara Phu Pate from Phuket Rajabhat University and the Prince of Songkla University Phuket campus.

The celebrations concluded on a high note, when the group assembled at the property’s Estrela Sky lounge for more live music, while taking in the venue’s breath-taking panoramic views of both the city and sea.

The 17-story hotel, for decades known as the Thavorn Grand Plaza Hotel, enjoyed a “soft re-opening” last year after closing for renovations in January 2012. (See story here.)
