The Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort kicked off its holiday season by lighting the hotel’s Christmas tree.
General Manager Andre Brulhart invited guests to the opening of their Christmas Tree Light Ceremony Dec. 2 with local tourism officials and representatives from the Father Ray Foundation present.
The annual lighting event is used to raise money for charity by offering the chance to take photos with Santa Claus for 100 baht. There was a strong turnout by not only guests, but Rotarians and charity foundations.
Thirty children from the Father Ray Foundation sang Christmas carols as well as tunes in honor of HM the late King. Cabaret acts and colorful stage performances rounded out the evening.
