Songkran in Paradise

Songkran, Thai New Year in Paradise


Songkran is Thailand’s new Year’s Celebration which takes place annually on the 13th and 14th of April. A national holiday rich in tradition and Thai culture, as well as a bucket-load of fun in the more modern twist on the water pouring ritual.

You may have seen images of thousands of people soaking each other in water, which are indeed true as the whole country takes part in a mass water fight. The tradition behind this comes from the cleansing of the Buddhist images and people by pouring blessed water over their head. This is seen to bring good fortune, pay respect and help to wash away sins.

These days the traditions have been turned into a large scale celebration across the whole country.

In Paradise we pay homage to all of our traditions with traditional Thai food, a Buddha cleaning ritual and of course a big water fight for anyone who is keen to get involved.

Paradise is starting to look a lot like Christmas

Paradise is starting to look a lot like Christmas

Coming back from a short trip to Singapore – to my home away from home @ParadiseKohYao & seeing Christmas trees & lights set up all around the resort, made me feel not only extremely happy, but also very blessed to be experiencing Christmas in such a unique way.

As I was born and raised in the southern parts of Germany, more specifically in the Alps, Christmas looked more or less like this to me:alpsxmas

Now that I am living in Paradise, I am very keen and excited to see and experience a Thai Christmas celebration. Our wonderful staff has put up Christmas Trees in the lobby and the restaurant and it is very fascinating to see these next to the palm trees, the famous hornbills & the beautiful Andaman Sea.

Considering all the set up & decoration that has been done already @ParadiseKohYao I can’t wait to see what is going to happen on the actual Christmas evening. I hear we have great culinary highlights & the best of entertainment planned for this special event. Keep your eyes open for further posts and I will keep you updated.
Sunny regards from Paradise and Merry Christmas!!

New Salt Water Pool


New Salt Water Pool

During our Low ‘Green Season’ The Paradise Koh Yao took the opportunity to renovate our main swimming pool & upgrade it to a Salt Water System.

Click here for more information.

The new renovated Salt Water pool at The Paradise Koh Yao is not only beautiful, but also has 3 key advantages over our old one:

1. HEALTH. A Healthier experience for our guests. Salt Water pools provide a less irritating experience, sometimes called a ’soft water’ feeling, with the reduced need for chemicals to keep the pool hygienic. Salt water is also more gentle on Eyes, Skin, and Hair – no  more red eyes, green hair & lingering chemical smell.

2. SAFETY. The Salt Water system is safer for guests and resort staff as chlorine, in tablet or liquid form, can be dangerous to both store and transport.

3. ENVIRONMENT. The Paradise Koh Yao has always been dedicated to bringing you “Back to Nature, in Total Comfort”. The new Salt Water pool fits in even better with our tropical gardens, and spectacular views of the famous Phang Nga Bay.
