Insight into Thai culture for guests at Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket

Insight into Thai culture for guests at Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket ( BANGKOK, Thailand - Every Wednesday morning at Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket, which is located on the beach at Karon, staff and hotel guests gather to present food, drinking water and other offerings to local monks as a form of merit making, or “tak bart,” a traditional Buddhist giving that allows the guests an insight into the Thai culture.

The monks are from Wat Ladthiwanaram, at Chalong in Phuket, and they travel every Wednesday morning to the resort where the ceremony takes place at The Lawn, a venue located between The Cove and Mare Italian restaurant.

All guests are welcome to join the tak bart giving at no cost and without making a reservation. The resort provides five sets of food with desserts, and some staff bring their own food from home to give to the monks. The resort general manager or the hotel manager are present to lead the giving, with other members of the management and staff team also regularly taking part.
