Resort director Tanet Suornsahatrangsi and general manager Prachak Svastisinha hosted a reception, with a demonstration of spa cooking and a dinner laid on for the guests.
Tanet confirmed that the investment for the resort, which stands on an area of 35 rai, was more than one billion baht. The resort had its soft opening in February, and the response from guests has been very favorable, he said.
Designed in a colonial style, Ravindra has 277 guestrooms in four styles, namely Superior, Deluxe, Family Suite, and Pool Villa. Along with the spa, amenities include a fitness center, a disco, a library, internet connections, and a limousine service. The resort’s current main target markets are the EU and Japan.

Great Escape 2008 includes Asia

The Great Escape 2008 will kick off a shorter scavenger hunt across Asia on November 8. The organiser’s event director, William Chalmers, said: “We have had many folks in Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok apply in the past for The Global Scavenger Hunt, so the interest is there.”
While the global hunt is a 23-day competition, the Asian challenge will last two weeks. It will take a maximum of 20 two-person teams on a scavenger hunt through at least six secret Asian destinations, kicking off in Sydney and ending in Melbourne on November 22.
Teams will be challenged to use their Indiana Jones-like travel savvy to overcome language barriers, cultural differences, logistical challenges, and the thrill of competition, as they uncover lost cities and seek out specialty marketplace items, among other activities.
The entry fee of A$7,495 (US$7,177) per person includes all international air fares, 15 nights accommodation, double occupancy, some airport transfers and about 30 per cent of meals. (TTG)
