We often talk about Miskawaan as being very family orientated and this is always at the fore-front of our minds in everything we do. Many of you very kindly write wonderful reviews of your time with us and comment on the experience and the staff you meet as being like family and that’s something we’re very proud of at Miskawaan. “Miskawaan is first and foremost a family business.” Comments Mandeep, Miskawaan’s General Manager. “Working with us at Miskawaan isn’t just about being part of a team; it’s being a part of our family. And that, we hope, is reflected in the levels and style of service and hospitality we offer to all of our guests. It’s what makes us Miskawaan.”

The vast majority of the team has worked at Miskawaan for many years and for Sales and Marketing Manager Lorraine this was a key element in her decision to join the Miskawaan family. “To be truly valued in the workplace is very important to me and the fact that there are rarely positions vacant at Miskawaan is a wonderful indicator of what Miskawaan is all about. Your day-to-day job here isn’t nearly as critical as your ability to be an effective and positive member of the team and of the Miskawaan family.”

You may not meet all of the 70 staff that ensure your time with us is perfect but be assured that each and every one of them knows about you and what you mean to us as a family.

Children love vacations just as much as adults. They just enjoy them in different ways. And Miskawaan Luxury Beachfront Villas are synonymous with great family holidays. Of course, having a private pool and the ocean a few steps away will keep many children extremely happy; however toddlers and babies require special care. And we are here to help.

We can arrange for a protective barrier to be put around the pool that small
children can’t climb over. We can provide cots and high-chairs and we have a
children’s menu in every villa. And your private chef will be delighted to prepare special meals for your children, simply let us know what they like. And we can
purchase diapers and baby care products for you so that you don’t have to bring them with you, they’ll be there on your arrival. And to allow mums and dads a little time on their own we can happily arrange a professional baby-sitting service for you, both during the day and in the evenings.

Family holidays should be fun, let us take some of the pressure from you so that everyone can have a fantastictime
regardless of whatever their pleasure may be. And that will be our pleasure.

One of the most important festivals in the Thai calendar takes place on the 25th of November And for Thais and visitors alike, the Loy Krathong Festival is a wonderfully colourful and expressive day (and evening) full of joy, noise and one or two beers!

Loy means 'to float’ and krathong refers to the lotus-shaped container which floats on the water. A krathong isdecorated with
elaborately-folded banana leaves, incense sticks and a candle. And a small coin is often included as an offering to the river spirits as are nail clippings and hair as symbols of letting go of negative thoughts. Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so. If you’d like to celebrate Loy Krathong in your villa just let us know beforehand and your villa manager can show you how to make your own krathongs.

You can light the candles in the early evening and float them in your pool or in the ocean. It’s a wonderful way to experience a very important Thai festival and we can also arrange transport to Chaweng Lake for later in the evening if you’d like to join in the
festivities with thousands of others.

And if you’re staying with us on the 5th of December perhaps you may wish to do something special for the dads that are with you. It’s the King of Thailand’s birthday and also Father’s Day in Thailand. Just let us know if you’d like to organise a surprise gift or a special cake perhaps and we’ll ensure the dads in your party have an extra-special holiday.

We will of course be celebrating Christmas and New Year at Miskawaan. And our chefs have created very special menus for the festive period. Just let us know if you’d like us to send you the menus through and please let us know of any special dietary
requirements you and your guests may have.

And regardless of whether you celebrate Christmas and New Year or not, we will make your stay with us memorable, luxurious and packed full of whatever you wish it to be filled with.

Rest, relaxation, wonderful views, incredible cuisine and welcoming smiles are just a few of the things you can expect from
Miskawaan. And if you’ve stayed with us before you’ll know that you’ll experience a great deal more. And for the more adventurous of you there’re always the world-famous Full Moon Parties on Koh Pha Ngan to enjoy.

Upcoming dates for the celebrations are: October the 28th, November the 25th, December the 25th and December the 31st.
