Royal Cliff’s Orthodox Christmas “Cruise around the Orient” Gala Dinner 

 On January 6th 2012, the Royal Cliff Hotels Group held a magnificent gala dinner themed “Cruise around the Orient”, poolside at the Beach Hotel for Orthodox Christmas.  A truly unique and glamorous approach to celebrating the joyful day, and with over 400 smiling and happy guests in attendance the evening was an overwhelming success.  A traditional Christmas Mass was held in the Beach Hotel before the party began to allow for religious observance of the sacred holiday.  
The evening’s entertainment program began with a full-scale marching band playing joyful music, indicating the start of more excitement to come!  Royal Cliff featured exciting shows such as a sizzling-hot fire dance, traditional Thai martial arts demonstration, graceful Thai dancing and several fresh and electrifying modern dance shows.  The resident band kept the party going and the dance floor packed with the latest music and best dance beats!  

Royal Cliff’s culinary team, once again, exceeded the expectations of all present with their 5-star buffet featuring a superb variety of Oriental delights and a dessert spread full of sinfully delicious selections.  In accordance with the theme, demonstrations of traditional Oriental craftsmanship such as painting paper umbrellas and ornate fruit carving were part of the evening’s repertoire.  A Children’s Corner was featured for the youth to enjoy a host of fun crafts and activities while a colourful and energetic clown made everyone balloon animals and toys.  

As the celebrations and entertainment at the Beach Hotel began to wind down, the excitement and dancing made its way to the Disco Cruise After Party at the Supper Club where a stylish and thrilling discotheque scene complete with a DJ, courtesy of Royal Cliff Hotels Group, opened its doors to the guests who bopped and bogeyed until the break of dawn.  

Situated on a private parkland estate overlooking the stunning Gulf of Thailand, the Royal Cliff Hotels Group offers the perfect beachfront setting with traditional and modern Thai style furnishings, extraordinary service and the ambience of absolute luxury.
