Loy Krathong – Festival Of Lights

9 Nov

Every year during the month of November, Thailand including Koh Samui, celebrates the magical and visual wonder of the Loy Krathong Festival. The festival is believed have orginated from an ancient practice of paying respect to the spirit of the waters. Today it is simply a time to have fun.

A “Krathong” is a handmade raft about 15 cm wide in diameter traditionally made from a  section of a banana tree trunk that is then decorated with elaborately-folded banana leaves, flowers, candles, photos and incense sticks.  The Krathongs may also contain nail clippings, hair strands and coins from the person who plans to use it.

Traditional Krathongs made from banana leaves

“Loy” means ‘to float’ and on the evening of the 10th November this year, every Thai person will set adrift their Krathongs with friends, family and loved ones in to a river, lake or the ocean whereby the act of floating away the candle raft is symbolic of letting go of all one’s grudges, anger and defilements, so that the Krathong owner can start life afresh on a better foot.

Families and friends send off their Krathong into the waters...

Celebrated widely across Thailand, with the festival comes lantern releases, fireworks and a general party atmosphere as people hope for great luck and prosperity in the times that follow.

Beach Republic welcomes all it’s guests and anyone wishing to take part in this joyous time of year, to celebrate with us at Beach Republic’s Restaurant and along our sandy shores. Krathongs will be made available to all who wish to enjoy and engage in the age-old practice and celebrations. Join us on the 10th November and participate in this wonderous evening at our Beach Republic Restaurant to collect your Krathong and float away your troubles.

Massage Therapy Room - Beach Republic - Koh Samui

Massage therapy has gained widespread popularity over the years and there is little wonder why. Massage not only provides relaxation and relief to muscle strain and fatigue, a therapeutic massage has been proven to improve your overall health and well-being.

There are many benefits to massage therapy including emotional and of course physical improvements in the body. Thailand and Koh Samui are home to countless numbers of spa treatment centers with traditional Thai massage having been a part of Thai culture for centuries. Thai massage blends styles from Asian neighbours passed down through the generations. Unlike the scooping and continuous strokes of Western massage, the Thai method uses point pressure, muscle stretching and compression, done in a rhythmic movement of gentle rocking.

Beach Republic’s Asian Fusion Spa, located along a stretch of stunning beach in Lamai, Koh Samui, takes a non-traditional approach and our treatments fuse traditional Asian and Western styles with an inventive, new age approach to spa therapy allowing you to receive the best and most progressive treatments available to ensure maximum benefit. Many of the applied techniques at the Asian Fusion Spa are generated from ancient therapeutic practices where your body’s energy is restored to balance through nourishing the inner sanctuary. Here, we unblock the flow of ‘chi’, focusing solely on the body’s Sen or Meridian Lines, utilizing such ancient practices as Chinese reflexology, Japanese Reiki, Indian Ayurvedi treatments and Traditional Thai massage with a hot herbal compress.

Beach Republic, the ocean club, resort and residences located on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand was awarded the Silver Medal at the prestigious OPP Awards for Excellence 2011 held at the ExCeL Centre in London.

The awards were held during The Property Investor Show & OPP Live. The annual event focuses on the international property market and is attended by the world’s top agents, developers, fund managers, wealth managers, service providers, and investors.

Nominated in the category of Best Fractional Scheme alongside shortlisted candidates that included some of the globe’s premier shared ownership developments, the esteemed panel of judges awarded Beach Republic the Silver Medal.

Beach Republic was commended for its completely open and low-key sales approach, its strong branding, and the attractiveness of the facilities made available to owners at the adjacent Ocean Club and Spa. The judges concluded that these qualities truly set Beach Republic apart from all of its competitors in the region.

Director of Sales, Robert Pestello was in London to represent Beach Republic. Upon being presented with the award, he was quoted as saying:

“It is an honor to be recognized at the industry’s premier event. I want to thank everyone at OPP for considering Beach Republic alongside the world’s leading fractional ownership resorts. After winning Best Shared Ownership at the Thailand Property Awards last year, it was clear that Beach Republic really is special. Now, to be commended on the international stage like this is truly humbling. I am extremely fortunate to be part of one of South East Asia’s premier resorts. I want to thank the entire Beach Republic team for helping to make this award possible.”

Fractional ownership at Beach Republic allows an individual to purchase real estate without assuming any of the burdens that often come with sole ownership. All owners enjoy the various services and amenities of the deluxe resort.

This form of real estate ownership is especially attractive to those who want to make use of a holiday home for only a few weeks or months a year. Increasingly it is also attracting investors who see returns via rental income and capital appreciation.

With excellent facilities and superior amenities, a stunning location, strong brand name, and increasing recognition both in Thailand and abroad, the multi-award winning Beach Republic is one of the most appealing fractional ownership investments in the region today.
