– Celebrate Thailand’s Annual Festival of Lights with Special Amari Loy Krathong Packages-

Dubai – It’s that time of the year when all Thais come together and celebrate Loy Krathong or the Festival of Lights. The annual festival is a special occasion for couples and families to re-energize their spirits and commitment with each other through Thailand’s magical and colourful candle-lit festival. To encourage international visitors to join in the celebrations and festivities, Amari Vogue Krabi and Amari Emerald Cove Koh Chang are offering special Loy Krathong packages ensuring value and enchanting memories for all.

Loy Krathong is one of Thailand’s most popular annual events and this year will fall on the weekend of November 16 and 17, 2013. Celebrated in the evenings, thousands of elaborately candle-lit flower and banana leaf offerings are set adrift into Thailand’s many rivers, symbolizing the drifting away of ill fortune. ‘Loy’ means to float and ‘krathong’ is a banana leaf cup. When witnessed in their thousands quietly floating downstream or into the ocean, this unique spectacle is at once both breathtakingly beautiful and emotionally moving, and not to be missed by anyone visiting Thailand.

Amari’s “Loy Krathong Packages” are tailored for couples and families to make the most of this special occasion and include special activities, spa treatments, gourmet experiences and generous complimentary extras. Both Amari Vogue Krabi and Amari Emerald Cove Koh Chang resorts are offering the special packages, which are available within a limited time period in November 2013.

Situated on the sandy white shores of Tub Kaek Beach beside the tranquil blue of the Andaman Sea, Amari Vogue Krabi offers couples and families a luxurious beachfront paradise with the stunning islands of Southern Thailand visible from the resort. The award-winning property includes free-form swimming pools for adults and kids and offers babysitting services to keep the little ones safe and occupied, while the resort’s multi-level Breeze Spa and superb fitness centre and impressive array of dining options provide abundant opportunity for the adults to relax. Amari Vogue Krabi’s “Loy Krathong Package” includes three nights in a Deluxe Room (also available in Grand Deluxe and Grand Deluxe Jacuzzi) and abounds with numerous value added services such as: round-trip car transfer from Krabi airport to hotel and vice versa, 20% discount on spa treatments at Breeze Spa, complimentary internet access, free access to the hotel’s kayaks for use during one’s stay (subject to availability), complimentary Thai BBQ buffet to celebrate Loy Krathong night at Bellini restaurant and complimentary krathong to join in the celebration. The total package costs 26,309 Thai Baht (approximately US$ 847.31), exclusive of taxes and service charges, and is available from 16th to 25th November 2013.

For couples yearning for a quiet retreat and absolute rejuvenation, Amari Emerald Cove Koh Chang, located off the south east coast of Thailand in Trat province, offers a stunning tropical island paradise with white sands and lush mountainous tropical rainforest as beautiful backdrops. Views of the sea in the west and the jungle-covered hills in the east set the scene for Amari Emerald Cove Koh Chang’s “Loy Krathong Package” which includes: two nights’ accommodation in a Deluxe Room (also available in Deluxe Mountain View, Deluxe Pool View and Deluxe Ocean facing), complimentary breakfast, shared round-trip transfer from Trat Airport, scrumptious buffet dinner and entertainment show on Loy Krathong festival day, delicately handcrafted floral krathong to celebrate Loy Kratong day on 16 November 2013, free entry to join a krathong making competition, welcome drinks and fruit plate and flowers in room upon arrival, 20% discount on food and drinks at any of the resorts restaurants and spa treatments at the hotel’s signature Breeze Spa and 5% discount on extra nights.
