Local political and community leaders were on hand as the Diana Group celebrated Songkran with a traditional water-blessing ceremony.
Diana Group Managing Director Sopin Thappajug led the April 14 ceremony at the Diana Garden Resort, attended by Pattaya City Council Tourism and Sports Committee Chairman Rattanachai Sutidechanai, Tourism Authority of Thailand Pattaya Director Niti Kongkrut and Human Help Network Thailand Director Radchada Chomjinda.

Sopin invited a trio of monks from Chaimongkol Temple to lead the water-sprinkling and blessings for the occasion, which the hotel group dubbed “Diana Family Day.”
“Today is a great opportunity for us to join in merit making and pouring of water for blessings from the monks, to enhance prosperity of life during the Songkran festival,” she said. “All Diana Group employees chose to join the water-pouring ceremony to ask for blessings from respected elders and those whom we respect. Whether they are of a subsidiary of the Diana Group, or respected people in Pattaya City, we assume that they are family.”
