Holiday Events Get a Tropical Twist at Mai Khao Beach Resort

Take One Part Paradise, One Part Luxury and a Dash of Island Style, and You Have a Magical Week at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa

PHUKET, THAILAND--(Marketwired - Dec 12, 2013) - There's really no bad time of year to visit the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa. Situated along the white-sand Mai Khao Beach, the best resort in Phuket not only boasts unparalleled access to the Andaman Sea, it also welcomes its guests with an abundance of amenities, like luxury guest rooms and suites, a dozen dining options and enough recreational options to satisfy a king. Yet with the arrival of the holiday season, there's an added sense of excitement due to both the holidays themselves and the celebratory events on this resort's calendar.

The fun begins on December 24 when Christmas Eve is marked by the Christmas Beach Barbecue at the Main Pool. As the finest and most luxurious of all beach resorts in Phuket, the property lets guests take full advantage of one of its best and most coveted features, the beach, during this family-friendly event.

Christmas Day enjoys a similar theme but at a different location for the Cool Christmas on a Hot Night at Out of the Blue Drink. After spending the holiday on the beach or exchanging presents within the sumptuous guest rooms, visitors can gather together from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. for festive food and drinks and plenty of family fun.

New Year's Eve ends things with a bang via the resort's Amazing Thailand, Amazing Night at Lotus Pond event. Between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. that evening, guests will find themselves greeting 2014 with signature dishes presented by each of the resort's 11 restaurants and bars, DJs and dance bands, Thai performances and a festive fireworks display.

With so many ways to keep Christmas and ring in the New Year, there's never been a better time to book one of the Phuket resort's vacation packages or splurge on upgraded accommodations. While all guest rooms and suites feature a garden, pool or ocean view, the resort also offers one-bedroom seaside suites and two-bedroom pool villas for the ultimate Phuket experience.

The holiday season between December 22, 2013 and January 10, 2014 offers accommodation rates starting at THB 14,500 per night and includes breakfast. Each Christmas event starts at THB 3,200; and the New Year's Eve promotion begins at THB 7,999 per person. Space is limited, and travelers are encouraged to book reservations soon by contacting, visiting or calling 66-76-338-000.

About the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa
Jungle safaris atop elephants, circus training and sea-turtle gazing -- all this and considerably more awaits guests of the five-star JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa. There are many reasons why the resort is ranked among the top 20 resorts in Asia by Condé Nast Traveler. After all, the extensive dining options (which include 11 restaurants and bars along with a Thai culinary school), the sumptuous 265 guest rooms and suites (which are outfitted with wood floors, silks, oversized tubs, high-speed Internet and breathtaking views) and the award-winning Mandara Spa all add up to an unparalleled destination. Plus the resort's beachfront location translates to a range of water sports and activities. But the attentive service, whether it's by one of the three pools or within one of the 10 lavish meeting rooms, is what really defines each stay at this impressive property where luxury and paradise intersect.
