Phuket Courtyards Out to Play: Photo Special

THE THREE Courtyards by Marriott on Phuket got together last night to celebrate their openings with a thank-you splurge at the Patong ''branch''.

The Marriott Extravaganza involved fun-filled activities and performances for 300 guests, and a chance to explore the largest of the new Courtyards.

Representatives also attended from a fourth Courtyard, the Courtyard Hua Hin at Cha Am beach, and from the first Marriott Phuket resort, the JW Marriott at Mai Khao.

The event was also an introduction for newly appointed JW Marriott Phuket General Manager, Robert Lohrmann. Five Marriott GMs were there to party.

At one end of the Patong resort, the super-sized Hard Rock Cafe guitar on Rat-U-Thit-200 Pi looks ready to twang. Expect an opening sometime soon.

Treats for lucky guests last night included a lucky draw to Take Home a Chef (a chef and server to go to a private home and cater for a dinner for eight) Bartender to Go (a barman and server to cater for a drinks party for eight) and a Marriott Signature Dance (a Thai contemporary dance group to perform a 15-minute dance routine for guests at your home.)

It was quite a gathering. Even the person who penned the best personalised namecard with sequins and colored ink won an Introduction to Diving course from Sea-Bees.

Patong, Kamala and Surin never seemed to get on this well before.

Judging from the general atmosphere, it will take more than an economic downturn to sink the long-term hopes for the bright future of tourism on Phuket.
