(Hong Kong, 5 July 2007) â€“ Indigo Pearl, a unique new luxury â€œindustrial chicâ€ resort in Phuket inspired by the islandâ€™s 100 year-old tin mining industry, is offering an activity-filled three day and two night package including Thai cooking lesson, spa pampering and even Thai boxing, perfect for weekend getaways.
The “Three Days Many Waysâ€ is headlined by a dayâ€™s tuition in the fine art of Thai cooking, with a market outing to buy fresh local produce and an introduction to the herbs and spices used in Thai cooking and finally a practical cooking lesson.
Another option in the action-packed escape is a one-hour massage treatment at the resortâ€™s spa as well as activities including tennis, water aerobics, beach soccer, beach power walk and volleyball, biking adventure, snooker tournament, water polo and Tin Box Kid’s Club for youngsters.
Group yoga and Muay Thai-boxing can also be included, if booked a day in advance for a nominal charge of Baht 1,000.
Including breakfast and return airport transfers, the holiday offer is available until October 31 and priced from Baht 11,900 (US$340) to Baht 23,450 (US$670) depending on room, villa or pavilion accommodation for either single or double occupancy. Additional nights including breakfast are priced from Baht 4,000 to 5,000.
The resort on Nai Yang Beach, just 10 minutes from Phuket International Airport, recently named one of the best new hotels in the world by CondÃ© Nast Traveler (US) in its â€˜2007 Hot Listâ€™ of top new resorts, spas, restaurants and nightclubs, is also a member of Hip Hotels.
The range of 277 rooms, villas, pool pavilions and suites all embody the Indigo Pearl resort experience and feature surreal design underscored by deluxe comfort.
The resort, where the imaginative, playful atmosphere extends from the architecture itself to a range of unique leisure facilities, both on land and sea, allows guests to sculpt their own holiday activities. Whether relaxation or activity, Indigo Pearl offers something for everyone â€“ spa, tennis, golf, diving, swimming, cooking, crafting, shopping and much more.
The eight food and beverage outlets, on this secluded Andaman Sea beachfront resort, range from Thai at Black Ginger and tapas served al fresco in Rebar to modern European fare at Tin Mine.
Everything down to the finest detail fits in with the theme of tin mining, extending through every facet of the resort, from the names of the restaurants and bars to the staff uniforms.
The historic infrastructure also accommodates a large Conference Pavilion for up to 900 delegates — including a 600sqm Grand Ballroom and twelve adjoining meeting rooms â€“ targeting the meetings and incentive (MICE) market.
