FOR 180 GERMAN travel representatives, it was a night to remember as they tucked into a special dinner at Centara Grand Beach Hua Hin.
The dinner started off with canapés, designed especially for this event, including coconut flavoured minced chicken salad on crispy rice cracker, mini pizzas with tom yum shrimp, Thai pomelo salad in a crispy cup, and Mango sticky rice sushi, were served in a relaxing atmosphere of traditional Thai music played by a stringed instrument called “Khim”.
During the serving of canapés and drinks, site inspection was also available for the agents to view a variety of the resort’s iconic colonial-style room types.
After the garden’s networking opportunity, guests were ushered to the welcome dinner party at the beachfront COAST Beach Club & Bistro and by the Colonial Pool.
The themed “Thai Street Food” presentation was arranged to resemble traditional Thai street food stalls, where the food is easy to eat standing or sitting and served in a traditional way using containers made out of banana leaves or a coconut.
At this special dinner setting, the agents had a chance to experience and learn more about some of the “Heritage Cuisine of Hua Hin”, which ties in with the historical aspects of the resort.
Savoury items freshly concocted and served at the food stalls included Phad Thai with chicken, Crispy fish cake and spring rolls, Chicken coconut soup served in a whole coconut, BBQ pork skewers with dipping sauce, Assorted grilled satay with peanut sauce, followed by popular desserts like Thai coconut ice cream and Deep fried banana.
Traditional and Western entertainment was provided during the evening.
“The resort is definitely the crown jewel of the resort town with so much potential to attract European travellers, especially those looking to explore the myriad of natural and cultural attractions that Hua Hin has to offer,” said Kevin Keogh, senior vice president of sales & marketing, and management representatives of DER Touristik GmbH & Co. KG.
“We believe that guests will find the resort the perfect place to spend a memorable holiday or an eminent venue to host all kinds of special events such as private parties and weddings on the beach.”
