The developer’s choice of the site was excellent – beautiful undulating hillside country, with an existing cover of varied eucalyptuses, mature bamboo and low shrubbery. The course is quite elevated, with attractive distant sea hill views. It usually has cooling breezes off the sea. The massive clubhouse is a cavernous marble confection with internal pools and cascading waterfalls dominating the landscape.

The Loi Krathong Festival
“Loi Krathong” is traditionally performed on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, which usually falls on some day in November. The floating of a ‘Krathong’ – a banana–leaf cup – is intended to float away ill fortune as well as to express apologies to Khongkha or Ganga, the River Goddess. Some believe that the ritual is meant to worship the Buddha’s footprint on the bank of the Narmada River, while others say that it is to pay respect to Phra Uppakhut, one of the Lord Buddha’s great disciples.
The Loi Krathong Festival is celebrated nationwide in Thailand, especially where there are rivers, canals or sources of water, with different unique characteristics.
