Kite Tour Asia (KTA) hosted it’s inaugural special Christmas Race Special at Phuket’s Chalong Bay, sponsored by the Rawai Nai-Harn Association, of which Serenity is a member. Featuring 3 days of close fought kite surfing competition, with numerous upsets, over the 5km square flat water Chalong bay course.

Chalong Bay is one of Phuket’s best kite surfing spots and contact our concierge if you wish to learn Kite surfing or do water sports at one of the local water sports centres, during your visit to Serenity.
Thailand celebrated National Children’s day on 11th January and Serenity joined the celebrations. Children’s Day in Thailand or ‘Wan Dek’ is a magical day where families come together to spend time with children and do fun things.
Phuket’s Children can enjoy tours of official government buildings, military aircraft and ships, with many businesses providing fee entry to local attractions and places of interest.
To mark the occasion, the Serenity team took this opportunity to give something back to our local community:
Serenity donates Bicycles for local underprivileged children for Children’s Day
The Serenity team (above) led by our General Manager Urs Aebi (centre) with our Executive Housekeeper Ms. Ying (right) donated gift for underprivileged children of the local Rawai community. The donation was received by the local representative.
Serenity gives donation for Children’s Education at Watsawangarom School
Serenity made a donation to support the eduction of the local children from Watsawangarom School in Rawai for the occasion of the National children’s day.
In light of the recent political protests in Bangkok, for those planning a visit to Phuket in the near future, we thought it might be a good idea to put your minds at ease.
Non-violent demonstrations are currently taking place in specific and confined parts of central Bangkok and do not extend to Phuket and most of the other provinces in Thailand. Phuket, and Thailand as a whole, is still a safe and welcoming place to visit and the demonstrations will not in any way prevent you from fully enjoying your well earned, relaxing stay at Serenity Resort & Residences.
If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Reservations team at email@example.com or by phone at (+66) 76 371 900.

‘Songkran’, which means “to pass/move into” in ancient Sanskrit, is the name given to the annual Thai festival, which celebrates the ‘Thai New Year’. Songkran is a nationwide holiday and is a time when younger generations pay respect to the elder generations by sprinkling their hands with water.
What is songkran
In recent years, Songkran has been adopted by the fun-loving younger generations as a great excuse for a nationwide water fight! Expect to see hundreds of people in the streets throwing water at each other, which is symbolises wishing someone ‘good luck’ for the coming year…during April, the hottest month of the year, you will be grateful for the splash! Songkran is a wonderful day for families and friends to get together and a truly memorable occasion for tourists.
When is Songkran
Celebrate the Songkran festival with us at Serenity & East 88 on Sunday 13th April 2013, where there will be food, drinks and some great entertainment. From just 880 Baht ++ for adults and 440 Baht ++ for Children, enjoy our wonderful Buffet dinner, DJ and Water entertainment by the sea at East 88 Beach Lounge.
