Meliá Koh Samui has rolled out the welcome mat for youngsters from Koh Samui’s Learning Center for Magical Autistic Children as part of a fun-filled day at the resort’s mini-water park and kid’s club. Sixteen children, along with parents and staff from the center, and volunteers from the Rotary Club of Samui-Phangan’s RotarySupport4Autism Project and Koh Samui Emergency Services, were “looked after like five-star guests” during the March 25 day trip. The children descended on the mini-water park with a shallow pool, slide, mushroom fountain and giant tipping bucket as well as the kid’s club Kidsdom, housed in a repurposed merchant vessel packed with colourful installations, activities and toys. The kids were also treated to lunch including fried chicken, fries, fruit, candy cotton and chocolate fondue. “It’s been an absolute pleasure to welcome the children to our resort; they particularly loved our mini-water park and a hearty lunch prepared by our executive chef Aziz,” said the resort’s general manager Ernesto Osuna. “To see their big smiles was incredibly rewarding for our team and we’re thankful for the opportunity to support the children. We hope to welcome them again.”
