Most if us know that when you go on business anywhere; local or otherwise, it's important that the hotel your staying at offers certain services. For some of us we might be a little less demanding and can stand having a room with 5 channels, no Internet connection, and a twin bed. But for me, and many others, we like to be comfortable and in touch with the outside world whenever we can because business matters is something we have to keep in touch with at all times, and comfort, well that should just be mandatory!
Recently I was thinking about going overseas to meet up with a few companies and businesses that might be interested in my business and then I got to thinking; who offers what, and what makes them really stand out amongst the crowd of all the other hotels and resorts. Little did I know, there are some really cool services and amenities available those of us that own business and do international travel! A few of them have been listed below (business and otherwise):
Pattaya Exhibition And Convention Hall (PEACH) is a world-class multipurpose exhibition and meeting facility of the award-winning Royal Cliff Beach Resort offering complete versatility and flexibility. PEACH has 6-levels and is located along the slopes of the cliff between Jomtien and Pattaya in a stand-alone complex occupying 10 acres. The convention and exhibition hall accommodates up to 8,000 person's theatre-style or 3,640 for banquets. The hall is highly flexible and can be divided into four large soundproof sections or into 10 smaller sections. There are also 18 breakout rooms with various capacities ranging from 25 to 320. This is a pretty incredible feat! I went online and looked up a little bit about the Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall and the pictures alone are amazing!
M.I.C.E is a new form of business services which is the fastest developing arena of the International tourism market. MICE supplies its services to many different business meetings, conferences, and also events and exhibitions. In fact, MICE; Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions is growing so famous and popular it's actually one of the fiercest selections at any hotel and has become essential to that of tourists and tourist destinations such as India, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Dubai and Thailand! One of the most popular destinations for M.I.C.E, however, is India and Thailand, particularly Pattaya.
Its like an all in one service for people that stay in these hotels. The main goal for most places internationally is to have this type of service as being the "bread and butter" of the hotels individuals are staying at. And with the advancement of technology, warm hospitality and individualized services merged with natural beauty and rich heritage this destination doesn't seem to be very far amongst the hotel owners which are incorporating Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions in their businesses.
The great thing about Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions is that it's specifically molded for business men and women and some of these hotels that offer Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions actually have on-ground Expo building that can be utilized by you the business person.
With the Thai Culinary Arts Class you can learn the fine art of Thai cooking, one of the world's most popular cuisines, at the Royal Cliff School of Thai Culinary Arts. Opened in September 2000, the school offers an ideal learning environment with a large open kitchen area for practical instruction, a small lobby and reception area, a locker room and a typically-Thai dining room with wooden furnishings and floor seating. Regularly scheduled classes are three hours long and in addition to cooking lessons, participants receive a number of complimentary gift items.
There are also special classes conducted for children. Each 3-hour class includes; Welcome Drink, lunch, Ingredients, Recipes and Menus, Apron and Chef's Hat, Gift Basket with Spices, Herbs and Curry Pastes, A Thai Culinary Arts Certificate. This would be a fantastic way to get away from the business side of things and take a break from work!
Theme Parties Clients have the opportunity to choose from a number of predetermined themes (a few of them listed below) or to customize one to their own liking. Whatever the case may be, a theme dinner or party at the Royal Cliff Beach Resort is guaranteed to be one of the highlights of your event. Themes include things such as; Ancient Sukhothai Theme, Black and Gold Theme, Dine Around Asia Theme dinner, Fiesta Latina theme, Fishermen's Theme dinner, Orchid Theme Dinner, and Chinese Emperor Theme Dinner.
Royal Cliff Wine Club is Asia's leading wine club! The Royal Cliff Wine Club was launched on the 28th of April, 2001. It is a by-product of the resorts enthusiasm in promoting wines and hosting wine-related events. Creative backdrops, excellent props and high quality staff service - from bringing in the wines to serving them - are what makes the club so very well-received. Add to that, a very affordable Baht 3,000 annual membership fee.
The Resort's Wine Cellar houses close to 900 of the world's best New and Old-World wine labels ranging in price from 850-450,000 baht a bottle and boasts more than 36,000 wines in its inventory including 10 varieties of the Resort's own label Selection. The wines in this selection are from some of the world's best wine producing regions and exclusively made and bottled for the Royal Cliff Beach Resort. The walk-in cellar houses carefully selected Old and New World wine labels, plus a variety of fine Champagnes and sparkling wines. For your convenience, the wine list comes with a map of wine-growing areas and shows where a specific wine comes from.
Ultimately I was just going to list off business service like the first two but really don't people that are away on business deserve to relax too? I mean that's what MICE and PEACH are all about after all, a business service but something that also allows you to soak in the atmosphere and scenery around you. To be able to have conference and meeting halls available to you but to also be able to kick back and relax and enjoy the beautiful place you are! Another thing you should look into, wherever it might be that your staying is sight seeing because you get to see impressive things round the country including wildlife in parks, the expansive ocean, mountainous passes and tremendous deserts. You can check out what services your resort or hotel offers beforehand by visiting their website or calling them and just asking the concierge!
