Daily life in Thavorn Grand Plaza by Marine Doom


I have already spent nearly a month at The Thavorn Grand Plaza Hotel, so now it is time for me to start to share my experiences such as; my day job, my night time activities and my life in Phuket.

The Sales and Marketing office in which I work, has many people from various countries around the world such as; Spain, Argentina, Austria, Germany, Malaysia, England, Australia, Russia, Philippines, Brazil and of course Thailand and France (where I come). Our Assistant Group Managing Director is Thai. It is a wonderful opportunity to discover new cultures and improve my English, although we do not work in my native language which makes it a little more complicated. In the Sales & Marketing department, I am in charge of the French Speaking market, the registration of reservations and the relationship between the office and reception. I think the French market is very interesting work and I have contacted all the French and Belgian tour operators to offer them to work with us, that is to say, to include hotels for students in their package. The first week I visited with people from the team two other hotels in the chain, beautiful hotels, located on the beaches of Karon and Nakalay.

Our Assistant Group Managing Director has given us a great opportunity with other students to participate in excursions to Phi Phi and James Bond Island (already mentioned in this blog), and more to come. In a few weeks after my mission in the Sales and Marketing department, I will go in two other hotels to discover new services.

Regarding the evenings and days off, I spend much of my free time with the team for dinner, visit Phuket or even go to the beach. The bars and restaurants nearby are very nice and of course the shopping in Phuket town you can find very beautiful things for prices more than adequate.
