Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra celebrated its 13th Anniversary, which falls on 15th February, during the hotel’s annual religious ceremonies on Monday, 27th January 2020, which was determined the most auspicious day for the ceremonies this year.
The ritual began at 8:00 am with the blessing of the Brahmin priests at the shrine to Lord Brahma on the hotel grounds near the hotel lobby. This was followed at 10:00 am by a Buddhist religious ceremony at a well-appointed pre-function room within the hotel. The General Manager was invited to participate in the ritual of the Three Gems, and nine monks from the local temple were present to officiate the ceremony. Staff were blessed and holy water was sprinkled around the hotel in accordance with Thai Buddhist tradition. After lunch, a Muslim blessing ceremony was performed at the Staff House, followed by a ceremony in the hotel’s pre-function room.
All heads of departments and available staff were welcome to attend these religious ceremonies wishing well for the hotel business, all its employees and the hotel guests.
