BANGKOK, THAILAND – Leading Thai boutique resort collection, MANATHAI Hotels and Resorts is inviting guests to discover authentic Thai experiences with three “Taste & Touch of Thainess” programmes featuring specially created complimentary activities for guests at MANATHAI Khao Lak, MANATHAI Surin Phuket and MANATHAI Koh Samui.

Guests at all three resorts can explore the unique flavours of Thai cuisine as they join a local chef in the kitchen to learn how to make Pad Thai Goong, the country’s famous spicy but sweet noodle and beansprout stir-fry dish using fresh, succulent locally sourced prawns. The sessions include an explanation of the main ingredients and hands-on experience preparing the dish before sitting down to enjoy it.

For the ultimate Thai massage experience, trained MANATHAI therapists are on hand in all three destinations to help guests relax and re-energize their bodies and minds through traditional Thai massage techniques. The holistic sensory tradition stimulates ‘Sen’ energy lines to promote a feeling of inner wellbeing with assisted stretches to loosen stiff joints and promote healthy circulation.

“As a home-grown brand we always like to make sure that the most appealing aspects of “Thainess” shine through at our hotels. This programme of activities and experiences guarantee that guests enjoy a true sense of Thailand no matter which location they choose for their vacation.” says Matt Fynch, Group Director of Sales, Marketing and Distribution. In addition to the resort-wide activities, individual MANATHAI Hotel and Resorts are also offering their own special Thai-inspired additions for guests to complement the stunning surroundings, appealing facilities and warm hospitality.

MANATHAI Khao Lak offers guests insights into the intricate and ornate Thai art of fruit carving. The beautifully natural Thai beachside setting with coconut palms lining the soft sands, combined with the resort’s elegant tropical décor, provide the ideal setting for this traditional art form, which also give guests the chance to return home with a unique new skill.

To set the scene for the Thai cooking classes and indulgent massage treatments, MANATHAI Surin Phuket, with its Asian dark woods and soft silk interior, welcomes arriving guests with an exquisite Thai flower garland ritual; a symbol of the genuine warmth behind traditional Thai hospitality.

At MANATHAI Koh Samui, a scented floral offering is combined with a traditional water ritual to welcome guests, promising a vacation immersed in exotic influences and gentle generosity.

“The beach is obviously a big draw for guests that choose MANATHAI Hotels and Resorts, but most people also like to enjoy the cultural along with the natural. The ‘Taste & Touch of Thainess’ programme allows guests to effortlessly blend Thailand’s best traditions with a relaxing beachside break,” added Mr. Fynch.
