Sofitel Centara Hua Hin Sponsors Royal Trophy Golf Championship
Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas Hua Hin has signed on as one of the official sponsors of the Royal Trophy golf championship, which will be staged from 7-9 January 2011.
The championship, the fifth in the series, will be held at the Black Mountain Golf Club in the coastal town of Hua Hin.
Played by teams representing the Asian and European continents, the championship will feature eight players and a captain representing each continent in a series of sixteen foursomes, four-ball and singles matches.
As part of its sponsorship arrangement, the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas will accommodate the European team with 40 rooms for seven nights.
The hotel will also have a booth at the Black Mountain Golf Course supplying light snacks and refreshments.
Hua Hin was Thailandís first seaside resort, having evolved when a railway line was built from Bangkok to the Malaysia border during the early part of the 20th century.
Sofitel Centara Grand Resort & Villas was built in 1923 as the Railway Hotel, and the elegance of a bygone era is carefully retained in this fascinating colonial style low-rise resort, which boasts a topiary with meticulously sculpted elephants, squirrels and birds, and is set on 16 hectares of beachfront land.
The hotel features 207 luxurious rooms and suites, with 42 private spa and pool villas and an array of fine-dining restaurants.
