To mark the completion of Dusit Thani Hua Hin’s quite remarkable Silver Reign, around 400 invited guests, made up of celebrities of stage and screen, politicians and regular patrons, all loyal supporters, mingled and marveled as the resort celebrated its 25th Anniversary in style at The Royal Dusit Hall. Following a glittering welcome cocktail reception in keeping with the silver theme, the doyen of Thai hoteliers, Victor Sukseree, who has remained at the hotel’s helm for all 25 years, played host and compered the evening.
Proceedings kicked off with a short video production highlighting the many highs and occasional lows experienced to date, followed by a few words of congratulations from Mr Chanin Donavanik, Dusit International’s CEO and son of the group’s founder Thanpuying Chanut Piyaoui. Aptly, 25 employees have accomplished 25 years’ service and they shared a moment in the limelight on stage, before Executive Chef Horst’s fabulous 5-course meal was enjoyed accompanied by a piano recital by the Yontrarak family which featured a special rendition of ‘Count Your Blessings’. Staff and Heads of Department demonstrated their versatility with special seasonal shows of their own, interspersed by nostalgic numbers by vocalists and dancers.
The guests were then led to champagne nightcaps on the Lagoon Lawn where everyone was treated to a captivating finale to the backdrop of a spectacular fireworks display. An angelic ‘Nang Fah’ floated serenely above proceedings with the enduring message that Dusit Thani Hua Hin is moving excitedly from “Silver Towards Gold”.
