It’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times!
In light of that, we are thrilled to share the news of our long-serving team members going on a trip to Thailand. This adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime one to many of them, fully paid for by the Resort, is a sign of us expressing a massive ‘thank you’ to those team members who have been working at the resort for more than 15 years.
It was heartwarming to see them stand on the jetty. The 13 nicely dressed gentlemen, wearing custom-made holiday shirts, had fluttery feelings in their stomachs and itchy feet as they were waiting for their first leg of the journey to commence.
In Bangkok, the group visited one of the world’s largest markets, Chatuchak, enjoyed finger-licking street food and buffet dinners, and saw great performances, such as the traditional, must-see Siam Niramit. Besides exploring the Thai capital, Kuredu’s long-serving team members also visited the historic Ayutthaya, a beautiful city with intricate temples and home of the Elephant Camp. Next on the itinerary was Kanchanaburi, close to which is the landmark bridge over the River Kwai.
We’ve also been told the group went shopping, hopped on the stylish Chao Phraya dinner cruise, though for the rest of the entertainment, group leader Abjee (our Executive Housekeeper) diplomatically responded that ‘what happens in Bangkok stays in Bangkok’. Fair enough!
Due to visa restrictions, some of the long-service team members regretfully couldn’t join the trip, but were compensated with free flights home, together with spending money, so they could spend some quality time with their non-Kuredu families.
