Renaissance Hotels’ new “Discover This Way” marketing campaign launched in May was inspired by the idea that every trip can be a tale, and reinforces the brand’s promise of delivering the unexpected. As such, Renaissance properties around the world are helping guests to explore and feel ‘the DNA’ of the local neighbourhood in the destination they are visiting, with fascinating experiences and exclusive perks to enjoy.
This includes the Renaissance hotels in Thailand, among them Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa and Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel.
When guests check-in they are given a Navigator map that will take them to hidden gems in the area, along with tokens to use at these local establishments. These participating partners help highlight the style, eats and beats of the destination.
The Renaissance Hotel Navigator, more than the typical concierge, is on hand to show guests how to discover the destination like a local by picking sights and sounds that can’t be found in the usual guidebooks.
At Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel, centrally located in the Ratchaprasong shopping district and within a short walk of the city’s Skytrain elevated rail network, one of Thailand’s most notable archaeologists will help guests explore street art in Chalerm La Park, Lakshmi Shrine at Gaysorn Village, neon night markets and other discoveries. Back at the hotel they can enjoy a Thai Night Festival of arts and culture.
Guests staying at Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa on the famous island’s lovely Lamai Beach can start the evening off with the Bar Ritual – a punch bowl created by the hotel’s mixologists, feast on succulent seafood at signature restaurant TawaNN, dine on classic Thai cuisine in Navigator’s Table style and learn to cook Tom Yam Goong with guidance from the chef, rejuvenate with a 60 minute signature treatment at Quan Spa or take the Navigator’s Tour that starts at Silangu Temple built from red clay and also includes exclusive access to a coconut plantation.
