Kasemkij Hotels recently hosted their annual ‘Exclusive
Moment’ thank you activity for guests. The activity, which was held
exclusively for long-stay guests from the Kasemkij Hotels and Serviced
Apartments in Sriracha (Cape Racha, Kantary Bay, Kameo House and Karavel
House), was attended by a resounding 70 Japanese guests. Most of them were
businessmen working in the area and their families. The activity, the eighth
of its type, was organized as an Orchard Tour to the province of Rayong, to
give guests an exotic taste of traditional Thai fruit.
Some of the Japanese guests are tasting certain types of fruit for the
Bright and early on Saturday, May 28th, the group headed
for Suphattra Land, a sprawling fruit farm in Rayong, led by Cape Racha’s
general manager, Sathawuth Sermprasert. Here they were welcomed with
refreshing coconut juice served in the shell, before boarding trams to begin
their exploration of the farm.
The final station on the tour is “Bees and Honey”.
The first station was the Rambutan Orchards, where the
group was received by “Mani”, the Rambutan Mascot whose entertaining ways
were most appreciated by the children. Here everybody enjoyed themselves
picking the sweet, juicy little fruit directly off the trees to taste.
The second station was the “Fruit Buffet”, the largest
station of all and definitely the most exciting for the group. The tables,
which were laden with an extensive and colorful array of popular Thai
fruits, including durian, mango, papaya, pineapple, contained items that
some of the Japanese guests were tasting for the first time.

Seven-year-old Susuka, mango in her mouth, said via her
father, “My favorite fruit is grapefruit. But today I have tasted many
delicious fruits that I’ve never seen before.”
After having their fill of these popular Thai fruits the
group moved on to the next station, along the way passing large hydroponic
gardens and the farm’s automatic reservoir, which is its main water supply.
At this station the guests were introduced to the famous Thai delicacy “som
tam”, a spicy green papaya salad that we are sure, in time, they will come
to love. To neutralize the spicy aftertaste of the papaya salad they were
also served some mouthwatering fruit salad made with beautiful
hydroponically grown fruit.
Buying fresh fruits and vegetables directly from the
The final station on the tour was “Bees and Honey”. Here
the guests, adults and children alike, were most intrigued by the beekeeping
demonstration and the honey testing procedure. So much so that everybody in
the group bought themselves fresh honey to enjoy back home at Cape Racha,
Kantary Bay, Kameo House and Karavel House.

Sakaguchi Sun, a 44-year-old executive commented,
gesturing to the farm, “Normally, I buy my fruits and groceries at the
supermarket or fresh market without ever giving a thought to where the stuff
comes from or the process involved, like in the case of honey. I have never
been to such an awesome place!”
Even though all good things, like this Exclusive Moment Trip, have to
come to an end, Kasemkij Hotels is glad the guests have their souvenir honey
and tons of photos to remind them of this happy day. And of course, the
company promises to organize something extraordinary and just as special
