Events Butlers guarantee smooth running for MICE planners at Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya
The resort, which is designed to a Lost World theme, is a destination in its own right and one of Thailand`s premier venues for MICE events.
“We decided to add Events Butlers to our team so that planners would be confident we are taking care of even the tiniest detail," says the resort`s general manager Robert J. Lohrmann. “Planners will have 24/7 support, right from inception through to the post-event analysis."
Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya has all the facilities to cater for the perfect meeting and create a memorable experience for delegates attending any MICE event.
“We recently staged a regional meeting and found that the level of attention we received throughout the entire planning process, and during the event itself, was outstanding," says Lalita Kuldilok, office manager of Belzona Polymerics Limited.
“Our event was a great success," says Panitda Khlaimanee, managing director for strategic planning and business development at CMO Public Company Limited, which recently organized a conference at the resort. “Our conference ran perfectly, and the reaction we had afterwards from delegates was extremely positive. Everyone was very impressed."
To create the Lost World theme, the resort is designed in the form of two giant cliffs, connected by a rope bridge, and with the entrance lobby fashioned in the manner of a cavern that leads through to a huge jungle-like water park with pools, a lazy river, water slides, waterfalls and other aquatic activities. Additionally, the resort sits on a fine stretch of sandy beach offering an extensive range of water sport activities including windsurfing, kayaking, boating and fishing.
The resort has 555 rooms and suites, all sea facing and designed to the Lost World theme. All the rooms are spacious, and each feature a furnished terrace from which to enjoy the view and the cool sea breezes. Most rooms offer a king bed or two double beds. Duplex suites are available, offering two floors of accommodation connected by a spiral staircase, while the Royal Suite is on two floors and has its own private sundeck and swimming pool.
Guests in Club Mirage category rooms or suites enjoy benefits that include the Club Mirage Lounge with five meal servings daily, including evening cocktails.
A wide choice of versatile meeting and function rooms make the resort an ideal venue for any kind of event. The ballroom is one of the largest in Pattaya, and there are a host of smaller rooms for seminars, meetings, presentations and receptions, while additional venues include the ballroom garden terrace, beachside garden, roof garden, and poolside.
Spa Cenvaree is set within its own village to one side of the water park, with a tranquil lagoon placed in front of the treatment suites. There is an air of serenity throughout with treatment suites for singles and couples, private Jacuzzis, an indoor Vichy rain shower, a herbal steam room and sauna, a cold and hot plunge pool, and a yoga and meditation pavilion.
There are many intriguing speciality restaurants where fine and exotic foods can be enjoyed, and bars where creative cocktails are whisked up to put an extra sparkle into the evening.
The resort`s all-day dining restaurant, Oasis, serves a hearty breakfast buffet with regular themed dinners. Ginger&Lime offers a fascinating take on Asian cuisines including Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese. Acqua serves modern Italian cuisine with the accent on fresh seafood, while Flames is a barbecue and grill restaurant where magnificent meat and fish dishes are prepared. With a striking décor and great views, Vistas lobby bar is a perfect rendezvous point and lounge for anytime of the day, while Zulu Jungle Bar is a lively night spot with engaging service staff.
The resort offers a variety of themed coffee breaks such as Pirate, Jungle, Beach, Casino and others. The beachfront location and proximity to several local attractions also afford meeting planners a choice of off-site venues, for example the Sanctuary of Truth and Silver Lake Vineyard, which can be used for both cocktail functions and dinners. Hotel venues including the 17th floor rooftop, Zico`s Brazilian Grill&Bar at Central Festival on the seafront, and Zulu Bar are also available for private functions that provide a creative element to any social activities.
