AUGUST 12TH HOLDS a special significance in Thailand. Since 1976, this is the day Thais celebrate Mother’s Day, as it is the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, the ‘mother’ of the nation.
Traditionally, the day begins with the family giving alms to monks at the temple. Children kneel before their mothers to express their love and gratitude and present her with Jasmine flowers, the Thai symbol of maternal love.

Privileges: Potted Jasmine plant or hand garland as a symbol of Thai Mother’s Day love; daily breakfast for two; guaranteed room upgrade (accorded upon check in); and ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free’ buffet dinner and spa treatments for Mum.
