Bangkok--17 Mar--Angsana Laguna Phuket

Angsana Laguna Phuket will celebrate the Thai New Year in style with the traditional Songkran Festival. One of Thailand's most anticipated and celebrated annual festivals from 13 to 15 April, the country commemorates the occasion with a spectacular water festival alongside traditional cultural shows and Buddhist ceremonies. Angsana Laguna Phuket in collaboration with XANA Beach Club will be organising a full day of endless cultural fun and water activity on Thursday, 13 April 2017.

The festivities will kickoff at the Loy Krathong Bar, where associates and guests alike will gather for a celebratory religious session, followed by a water blessing ritual at the Poolside Garden. The pouring of fragrant water over the hands of elders is a symbol of paying respect and washing away bad luck for the New Year. The activities continue with a long drum parade, water war, a boxing performance and a Miss Songkran Contest.

XANA Beach Club will host the two event highlights - "Shower from the Tower', a water fight with plenty of foam to cool down in the summer heat, and a DJ party featuring the Winner of Pioneer Pro DJ Lady Championship 2010 - DJ Roxy June ,the Princess of House Music from Thailand and resident DJ Viki Love.

The word Songkran means "a move or change in the astrological position of the sun" symbolised by the sprinkling of water and hand cleansing for good luck in the New Year. Taking place during the hottest period of the year, Songkran is a fun way to cool off. After the traditional water pouring ceremony, also known as Rod Nahm Dum Hua, the water throwing commences! In recent times, the ceremony has evolved into spontaneous water fights all over Thailand.

"By showcasing the traditional Thai way of life, with its colourful and vibrant festivities, we hope to provide our guests with lasting memories" said Brian Connelly, General Manager of Angsana Laguna Phuket.
Angsana Laguna Phuket welcomes all guests to experience an authentic Thai cultural experience with plenty of water and lots of fun.
Entrance fee for XANA Beach Club at THB 100, inclusive of two THB50 coupons for food and beverage.
