CENTARA HOTELS & RESORTS will again be the main sponsor and play host to the Centara World Masters amateur golf tournament in Hua Hin next June 10-16, 2018 .

It will mark the fifth year of the tournament, which attracts golfers from over 50 countries. It is expected to be bigger than ever, as it combines a week of golf at some of Thailand’s best courses with social and entertainment activities in this famous seaside resort town.

The 2017 tournament, recently completed, was praised by participants for its beautiful courses and organization, along with world class accommodation and gala events at Centara’s famous resort in Hua Hin.

Next year’s tournament will feature four outstanding courses. Players will enjoy one round each at Springfield Royal Country Club, Black Mountain, Banyan Golf Club and Imperial Lake View.

Carts and caddies will be provided at each course, and each player will be assigned a caddie wearing a bib with the player’s name and country flag. The tournament will be open to men and women over 35.

Centara Hotels & Resorts is the major sponsor, and most golfers choose to stay at the ideally located Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas in Hua Hin.

Established in the 1920s, the resort has been restored and renovated with all the modern luxuries and conveniences, while retaining the magic of elegant, bygone eras.

Taking full advantage of Centara’s beachfront location, the opening night welcome dinner and gala presentation dinners will be held around the resort pool, with the beach as a stunning backdrop.

Golfers gather each night during the tournament for 19th Hole festivities, where Thai cuisine is offered, Chang beer flows and daily golf winners are celebrated.

“At Centara, we have 37 hotels and resorts internationally, including many in golfing paradises such as Bangkok, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai in Thailand, and Danang in Vietnam.

“ We look forward to welcoming many more golfers, friends and families not only to Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas, Hua Hin, for the acclaimed Centara World Masters event next year but also to our array of city and tropical beachfront locations year round” said Thirayuth Chirativat CEO, Centara Hotels & Resorts.

Centara to support program that puts surplus food to good use

CENTARA HOTELS & RESORTS, Thailand’s largest hotel operator, will participate in an innovative new charity operation that collects and distributes surplus food to benefit people in need, starting in August.

The operation, ThaiHarvest|SOS is a joint initiative with OzHarvest, the pioneering Australian organization that has established a proven and successful “Food Rescue” model. which is being adopted around the world, and the Thai Foundation Scholars of Sustenance (SOS)”

The program’s mission is to eliminate hunger and food waste through the re-distribution of quality surplus food. Experts estimate as much as a third of food produced for human consumption is wasted in the transport, distribution, and preparation supply chain. When this food ends up in a landfill, it represents a tremendous waste of resources, and a lost opportunity to help people unable to afford adequate nutrition.

The OzHarvest rescue and redistribution system has proven a safe and efficient way to reduce this waste and benefit the planet. Begun in Australia 14 years ago, it is now being replicated in the UK, South Africa, New Zealand, Peru, Indonesia and Vietnam. An important part of the initiative is educating people about the problem and opportunity of food waste.

In Thailand, ThaiHarvestISOS picks up good quality surplus food daily from participating supermarkets, hotels, food courts, restaurants and other businesses. Trained inspectors sort the food and assure its safety. Food no longer fit for human consumption is taken to local farms for composting. The rest is refrigerated and delivered to the needy.

Since 2016, ThaiHarvestISOS has donated over 60,000 meals to organizations such as Mercy Center Orphanage, Half Way Homes for men and women, the Pak Kred Babies’ Home and the Poh Teck Tung Foundation.

In August Centara Hotels & Resorts will begin donating surplus food from its Centara Grand hotels at CentralWorld and Ladprao. Eventually it hopes for all its Thailand properties to participate. These main two properties will also arrange an event called “Master Class Dinner”.

It will be led by Will and Steve, celebrity chefs who won Australia’s The Seven Network’s top rating cooking show in 2015 – My Kitchen Rules Australia. They are known as chefs who support OzHarvest campaigns and now ThaiHarvestISOS.

“We are thrilled about the leadership taken by Centara to partner with us on our mission to eliminate hunger and reduce food waste through the re-distribution of quality surplus food. Their commitment and support will allow ThaiHarvest|SOS to both help reduce food waste in Thailand, and at the same time, provide good meals to those in need in our community”, said Gopi Krishnan, head of programs at OzHarvest and ThaiHarvest|SOS.

“As we prepare food for our guests, unavoidably at the end of each day we have surplus – for example, bakery items or excess from a large banquet,” said Winfried Hancke, Centara’s corporate director of food and beverage. “It is a shame to let this food go to waste when there are so many people who could benefit from it.”

Supatra Chirathivat, Centara’s senior vice-president corporate affairs & social responsibilities, noted how well the program fits the group’s social responsibility and sustainability goals.

“Being a good member of the community means helping those less fortunate and using the earth’s resources more efficiently. We’re so enthusiastic to support the work of OzHarvest and ThaiHarvestISOS. Food is an area where we can all help reduce waste. I hope our involvement helps educate and inspire others to do their part.”

ANANTARA LAYAN PHUKET RESORT is offering a unique wellness retreat from now until Oct. 21, 2017 with nutritionist, body coach and the UK’ s Goddess of Wellness, Mel Wells.

Set amidst the lush oasis of northern Phuket, Anantara Layan invites women from around the world to take part in The Goddess Sanctuary, a four-day retreat offering a private haven to help transform themselves and their relationship with food.

The retreat, the first for Mel Wells in Thailand, will encourage emotional, physical and nutritional restoration and relief for women who want to set themselves free of diets and fall in love with their bodies. Mel will use her certification as a Health and Eating Psychology Coach to help women gently transform their mindset and make peace with food.

Carefully selected for its location, Anantara Layan will help to bring to life her positive self-love message, encouraging goddess of every type to celebrate themselves and each other in a safe and luxurious environment.

The Revolution on Tropical Shores. The retreat program has been out together to ensure that Goddesses will get to embrace the peace and harmony of their surroundings.

Be nourished by the team of chefs and relax within the glamourous private spaces. The workshops will be an extension of her best-selling book, The Goddess Revolution, a handbook for women to help them make peace with food, love their bodies and reclaim their lives.

It’s a collection of tools, mindset shifts and lessons, as well as stories from her own journey and those of other women that she has worked with.

One of the most important parts of the transformation is nutrition, so Anantara has worked closely with Mel to offer a dedicated menu of healthy and wholesome dishes and meals throughout the retreat.

In addition to the workshops, retreat goers will be invited to take part in active and indigenous experiences such as traditional Thai Boxing (Muay Thai), paddle boarding on the Andaman sea, exploring bustling local wet markets, learn how to cook flavoursome and healthy Thai dishes, and care for rescued elephants in a nearby sanctuary.

To ensure that the soul is taken care of, there will be complimentary spa treatments, revitalizing yoga sessions and time to relax by the infinity pool, relish in the luxurious surroundings and connect with like-minded goddesses for the ultimate week of holistic nourishment.

Mel says “If you’re sick of your life being controlled by food and your weight, then I want to work with you and Anantara Phuket is the perfect paradise to do just that.

“The retreat is all about self-love and self-worth. And to celebrate the journey, I will be throwing a private Goddess Beach Party at the end of your stay, can’t wait to see you there.”

 

 

 

The winner of this year’s King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament

IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING who won King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament, it was Mekhong, who went head to head with reigning champions, King Power, culminating in a thrilling end to the tournament, with Mekhong clinching the title in the last moments of the match in a final score of 10-11.

A total of 10 teams with over 40 players from around the world created many memorable moments on and off the pitch during the annual four-day charity event in Bangkok.

A total of 25 unemployed ex-street elephants took part in this year’s tournament, during which time they received full veterinary checks from the Zoological Parks Organisation of Thailand (under the patronage of His Majesty the King of Thailand) and the Department of Livestock Development.

In addition, all elephants were given essential vitamins, food and care which are not available to them during their normal daily lives.

The tournament was introduced to Thailand in 2001 by Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas and is now one of the biggest charitable events in the Kingdom, raising funds for projects that better the lives of Thailand’s elephant population.  Six million THB has been raised this year, taking the total raised to date to over 50 million THB (US$1,400,000)

Funds will be donated to various projects including the Positive Reinforcement Target Training program for mahouts and vets, the Zoological Parks Organisation of Thailand which supports veterinary and educational projects to improve the year-round lives of the 300 elephants and mahouts in Ban Ta Klang, Surin Province where ex-street elephants face ongoing hardship.

Other significant benefits from the money raised by the tournament include: the ongoing Thai Elephant Therapy Project which has been underway since 2009 in conjunction with Chiang Mai University’s Department of Occupational Therapy, with future clinics to include children with Down’s syndrome and other conditions.

Other benefits include a 500,000 THB gantry to help lame elephants stand, donated to the Thai Elephant Conservation Centre (TECC); 4,000 trees planted in Hua Hin for elephant corridors to stop farmer/elephant conflicts.

Funding a conservation curriculum for schools to teach children the importance of conservation and protection of wild elephants in Thailand, and funding Asia’s first workshop to show traditional elephant trainers and camp owners the benefits of Positive Reinforcement Training for captive elephants.

The event had something for everyone, kicking off with a colourful opening parade, with the opening ceremony overseen by the Kru Ba Yai, Thailand’s ‘elephant spirit men’, traditional dancers, plus the daily trunk-to-trunk action on the pitch.

Day two saw the tournament host hundreds of children from local schools in Bangkok. Known as Chang Noi Day (Little Elephant Day), the children were invited to get up close with the elephants and learn more about their national animal.

A range of educational walks, games and activities all teaching the benefits of elephant conservation and wellbeing were showcased by the organizers.

Saturday was ‘Ladies Day’, popularly known as ‘Bangkok Ascot’, where ladies dressed to impress with the best-dressed lady winning a stay in the Maldives.

The highly-anticipated final was presided over by the King of Thailand’s Royal representative, H.E. Air Chief Marshal Chalit Pukbhasuk, Privy Councillor.

Final Leaderboard for 2017 King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament:  Mekhong, King Power, Casillero del Diablo, Johnnie Walker Blue Label, Arabian Knights, Citi, PWC All Blacks, IBM, Benihana and Anantara.

Lest this day pass unnoticed

HE WAS KNOWN as Dictionary Johnson, creator of the first English dictionary, under some very difficult circumstances. Before then, he eked out a living as a journalist, sometimes making up the speeches that were supposedly given in Parliament.

There is one memorable scene before he became famous:

JonsonEvening. May 16, 1763. James Boswell, an impressionable 22-year-old from Scotland, is about to meet Dr. Samuel Johnson for the first time. Boswell had tried to meet Johnson a number of times but something always went wrong at the last minute. Then, quite unexpectedly, while he was having tea with Mr. Davies, the bookseller and sometime actor, Johnson suddenly made an appearance.

By this time, Boswell, who liked to hobnob with the talented and famous, was highly agitated and nervous, wanting to insinuate himself to Johnson, yet frightened of saying the wrong thing.

Here’s how he remembered it in his biography of Johnson:

Mr. Thomas Davies, the actor, who then kept a bookseller’s shop in Russel Street, Covent Garden, told me that Johnson was very much his friend, and came frequently to his house, where he more than once invited me to meet him; but by some unlucky accident or another he was prevented from coming to us.At last, on Monday the 16th of May, when I was sitting in Mr. Davies’s back parlour, after having drunk tea with him and Mrs. Davies, Johnson unexpectedly came into the shop; and Mr. Davies having perceived him through the glass door in the room in which we were sitting, advancing towards us — he announced his awful approach to me, in somewhat the manner of an actor in the part of Horatio, when he addresses Hamlet on the appearance of his father’s ghost, “Look my Lord, it comes.” I found that I had a very perfect idea of Johnson’s figure from the portrait of him painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds soon after he had published his Dictionary, in the attitude of him sitting in his easy chair in deep meditation, which was the first picture his friend did for him, which Sir Joshua very kindly presented to me …

This passage still resonates, even after 254 years, as does this memorable account of Johnson’s meeting with David Garrick, a famous actor of the day and a former pupil from Johnson’s teaching days. They are standing backstage in Garrick’s theatre and Garrick had just asked Johnson how he liked it.

“I’ll come no more behind your scenes,” said Johnson, ”for the silk stockings and white bosoms of your actresses excite my amorous propensities.”

 

2017 King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament set for March 9-12

WHERE? Bangkok. WHEN? March 9-12.

Now in its 15th  year, the King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament has become one of the biggest charitable events in Southeast Asia with over US$1.3 million (BHT 46 million) raised and donated to projects that better the lives of Thailand’s wild and domesticated elephant population.

Thirty unemployed former street elephants will take part in this year’s festival, during which they will be given full veterinary checks and care, much needed food and drink and essential vitamin supplements for the duration of the event.

The welfare of the elephants that participate in the King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament is of paramount importance, with strict rules ensuring that the pachyderms are well cared for at all times.

By imposing a “no micro-chip, no game” rule, Anantara, which sponsors the annual event, guarantees that all participating elephants have been domestically bred and not captured from the wild or smuggled in from neighbouring countries.

The King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament recently awarded a silver medal for Sports CSR Initiative of the Year at the Asia 2016 SPIA Sports Industry Awards.

Organized by Sport360° and MMC Sportz, in partnership with the Thai Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Sports Authority of Thailand, the awards applauds sports industry leaders that demonstrate a balance between business, community and environment.

The 2017 event will have 10 teams encompassing over 40 players, including Thai celebrities, supermodels, professional horse polo players and New Zealand All-Blacks rugby players.

The four-day festival will have something for everyone including an impressive Opening Parade, Children’s Educational Day, Ladies Day, known as The ‘Bangkok Ascot’, and fun elephant related activities.

Anantara has long been associated with elephant conservation efforts with the formation of The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, which has performed over 40 rescues of elephants off the streets of Thailand, as well as bringing the hugely successful Elephant Parade to Bangkok.

The Red-Whiskered Bulbul and Phuket Marriott

IF YOU GO TO PHUKET MARRIOTT, you’ll see a number of images of the Red-Whiskered Bulbul incorporated all around the resort – in its furnishings, fixtures, fittings and sculptures.

The bird, which got its name from its bright red cheeks, is prized by local people for their sweet call and beautiful plumage – especially the rarer all-white breeds. Its call is so charming and distinctive that it once captured the heart of royalty.

Recognizing the importance of this bird, Queen Sirikit of Thailand established an annual bird-singing contest in Narathiwat – a province in southern Thailand. This contest was intended to build stronger community relations in Narathiwat, giving the red-whiskered bulbul truly has a royal seal of approval.

The red-whiskered bulbul is quite rare, and it is believed that seeing one can bring good luck.

So if you see a red-whiskered bulbul at the resort, remember to treat it with respect – it represents the life and soul of the southern Thai community. Locals have them in beautiful cages. One bird in each in order to make them sing and go for the bird voice competition.

Also interesting is if they sing well and their voice is above the normal level, they are valued at more than 100,000 THB.

Phuket Marriott was officially opened in June 2016 as a completely refurbished resort. It was previously operated by Imperial Adamas.

Located on the sandy beach of Nai Yang, considered one of the most scenic area of Phuket, the 180-room resort is surrounded with tropical vegetation and lush green forest within the Sirinath National Park.

It is just a 10-minute drive from Phuket International Airport and adjacent to the old town of Nai Yang along with numerous natural attractions and scenic hot spots.

On hand for the official opening, Karl Hudson, area vice-president, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia & Japan of Marriott International, noted that Marriott had signed an agreement with TCC Land Asset World in 2013 to develop seven hotels and resorts in Thailand.

42-lobby_reflecting_pool_evening_3247_v2“We successfully opened Hua Hin Marriott Resort and Spa in March and are delighted to welcome this Phuket resort under our flagship Marriott Hotels brand. This recent addition of Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach increases our total portfolio in Thailand to 18.”

Phuket welcomes approximately 12 million visitors per year, mostly tourists from European and Asian countries. Phuket is one of the largest contributors to Thailand’s tourism industry, bringing around 200 billion Baht to the country each year.

“The opening of Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach, will address the needs of both local and international travelers,” said David Ippersiel, general manager of the Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted with signature welcome drinks in the open-air Greatroom with views and the fresh Andaman breeze.

Guest rooms are designed in two unique styles: traditional-Thai with relaxing earth tones, or a more sleek-contemporary décor with modern and innovative touches.

A choice of several restaurants and bars is available at Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, offering both Thai and international cuisine with personalized service and local chefs.

The Andaman Kitchen, an all-day dining restaurant, features a wide array of dishes while the beachfront Big Fish Restaurant & Bar serves fresh seafood and offers a wide range of beverages, from local signature drinks to international cocktails. Afternoon tea is served in the resort’s open-air lobby lounge.

The resort also features a range of facilities — from its large lagoon-inspired swimming pool to a fully equipped 24 hour fitness centre, the luxurious Quan Spa with its world-renowned signature treatments to the beachside pirate-themed Kid’s Club.

The resort also has a 126-square-metre ballroom and several function rooms, all with natural daylight, that make it ideal for various types of events, ranging from private parties to exclusive seaside weddings.
