Phuket, Thailand, March 27, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- It may be a long journey from Phuket to New York City but the New York Times Travel Section of the Sunday 21st March paper enticed American travelers with a feature by Ingrid K. Williams titled ‘36 Hours in Phuket, Thailand”. The article named 12 things not to be missed including eating at Mom Tri’s Boathouse Regatta and suggested staying at Mom Tri’s Villa Royale.
Mom Tri’s Villa Royale was touted as “… a boutique resort with 35 sumptuous, Thai-style suites” and Ms. Williams praised the fare at Mom Tri’s latest restaurant in Phuket, the Boathouse Regatta: “The service is as polished as the colossal yachts docked out front, but the real star is the food. Recommendations include lobster ravioli with morel mushroom crème sauce.”
Some of the other notable and off the beaten path things to do included in the article were the “bohemian art colony” Rawai Art Village located south of Mom Tri’s boutique hotels -a collaboration of “refreshingly original” Thai artists- and for some authentic local treats the Chef Roti stand in Kamala and the night food market on Ong Sim Phai Road near the Robinson Department Store in Phuket Town.
Mom Tri’s Villa Royale PR Manager Sylvie Yaffe comments, “We were delighted to see the New York Times listed Mom Tri’s Villa Royale with the Amanpuri and Sala Phuket as the places to stay in Phuket, Thailand. It’s is a great privilege to be recognized by such a publication. Guests from New York whom were staying here when this was released were thrilled to already be at the hotel mentioned; in fact many of their friends had forwarded them the article knowing they were in Phuket.”
Boathouse Regatta PR Manager Lisa Sol was equally thrilled. “We didn’t know we’ve had a visit from a writer of such a distinguished publication and I am pleasantly surprised we have gotten such a write-up. Known for our Wine Spectator awarded wine cellars and our excellent cuisine we receive a lot of American guests appreciating good food and wine in the Boathouse and Villa Royale restaurants. I am pleased our latest restaurant Mom Tri’s Boathouse Regatta, opened just last year at Royal Phuket Marina, is already now on the New York Times radar.”
With a circulation of nearly 1 million a day and millions of hits to their website per month, the New York Times’ article is sure to generate a lot of interest not only in the mentioned highlights but also in Phuket, Thailand as a holiday destination.
