Kata Group Resorts Thailand is to be the host sponsor of the 27th Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, making this the 15th year that the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2013 Nominee has supported the renowned Thai yachting spectacle.

The group also houses staff of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organising Committee and its support teams, as well as providing high quality accommodation to sponsor representatives and VIP attendees.

Pamuke Achariyachai, President of Kata Group Resorts Thailand, said, “We are honoured to continue to support the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, one of Asia’s most revered and competitive sailing events. The King’s Cup is a great opportunity for us to achieve worldwide awareness of the Kata Group brand. Last year, we also received a prestigious trophy from the Personal Representative of His Majesty the King of Thailand in recognition of our long-standing support of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, and we are proud to continue our sponsorship of this magnificent race into 2013 and beyond.”

Kata Group Resorts Thailand has a 32-year reputation for offering high-quality, affordable resort destinations and the world-famous Thai holiday experience within the reach of a broad demographic of customers who love to travel to this beautiful part of Thailand. The Group currently owns and operates six resorts in Thailand: Kata Beach Resort & Spa, Phuket; Beyond Resort Karon, Phuket; Phuket Orchid Resort & Spa, Phuket; Kandaburi Resort & Spa, Koh Samui; Beyond Resort Khaolak, Phang Nga and Beyond Resort Krabi in Krabi.

Kevin Whitcraft, President of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organising Committee, said, “Over the years, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta has been the arena for epic, close-quarter sailing action, whilst it also enjoys a reputation for its legendary series of beachside parties and closing celebrations. Kata Group has provided consistently excellent accommodation, food, entertainment, management facilities and event support to the King’s Cup for many years, and we are truly appreciative of their devoted and on-going host sponsorship.”

As a principal fixture on the Asian Yachting Circuit, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta under Royal Patronage annually features upwards of 100 boats, ranging from high tech to live-aboard ocean cruisers, multihulls and classics. International-standard race management is combined with lively beach parties to create this world-renowned yacht racing exhibition.
