Authentic experiences provide unique insight and unforgettable memories.
Movenpick Hotels & Resorts across Asia and the Middle East has introduced a new Local Flair Getaway concept that connects travellers with unique local experiences that are light years away from traditional tourist attractions.
“More and more travellers want to engage with a destination in an authentic meaningful way,” said Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer for Movenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Asia. “They want to learn about local cultures, talk to local people and enjoy local experiences rather than just visit the sights.”
Every Local Flair Getaway experience includes room nights, special services and features experiences that are as unique as they are varied from art, architecture and culture to cuisine, wildlife and history, and are as unforgettable as the destinations themselves.
In Aqaba expert ornithologists reveal the secrets of the mass migration of rare birds across Jordan; in Lebanon wine connoisseurs track down the country’s rarest vineyards; in the UAE a vet reveals how Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital has managed to treat 42,000 birds and in Kuwait a historian unearths the ancient relics of lost civilisations on the island of Failaka.
In Thailand, Movenpick properties in Phuket are offering memorable experiences for their guests to embrace the Thai culture and way of life. At Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket, guests can learn the secrets of Thai cuisine and discover the special techniques needed to blend herbs and spices to capture the essence of Thai taste as part of the resort’s special 3-night stay “Local Flair Getaway” package, starting from THB 5,750 ++ per room per night. While also for a minimum stay of 3 nights, starting from THB 11,700++ per room per night at Movenpick Resort Bangtao Beach, the Local Flair package offers a choice for guests to either learn about Thai massage or Muay Thai, showcasing two world-renowned and popular Thai arts of boxing and massage that require the use of skilfully wielded hands, feet and elbows – in boxing, to defeat an opponent; in massage, to combat stress and fatigue.
“Each experience is completely unique,” said Andreas Mattmüller. “But there is one thing that is common to each one – unforgettable memories come as standard.”
