Chinese New Year

The 30th of January we celebrated The Chinese New Year. This is the Year of the Horse.

China and Chinese culture have influenced the whole of Asia for thousands of years. Thailand, of course is no exception. Many Chinese settled here hundreds and even thousands of years ago. So the Chinese New Year is celebrated all over Thailand. At Rocky's we are no exception and we love celebrating the Chinese New Year! In fact we like all celebrations!

We started in the morning with a traditional Chinese ceremony where respects were paid to the ancestors. This consisted of offerings of food and burning of money, gold and other valuable objects. Of course it was not true money or gold because it is a symbolic ceremony. In Chinese culture remembering those who passed away and all the family's ancestors is very important. It is believed that the best way to start the New Year is to pay respect to one's ancestors, hence this ceremony of offerings. The symbolic burning of money and gold is done in the believe that this will reach and help those who passed away and now inhabit "The other world". It is indeed a very interesting and ancient tradition and here at Rocky's our Guests had a wonderful chance to participate in this wonderful ceremony and therefore learn a bit more about Chinese culture. 
Our Guests were delighted!

To put an end to the morning ceremony we lit one thousand firecrackers to ensure ourselves and our Guests a very lucky and prosperous year of the horse. It was wonderful!

We prepared a Wonderful Chinese Menu for our Guest and we had many shows and activities. We had special activities for the children in the Banquet room and the kids really loved it. After this the shows activities continued at the Dining Room. We had a complementary Welcome Drink for our Guests and a Great Chinese Menu. There was live music and a Traditional Chinese Dance Show.

Testimonials from our Guests

Attention to detail
5 of 5 stars
Reviewed 4 days ago

We stayed at Rocky's for a week for our anniversary celebration. We experienced dinner on the beach and it was beyond our expectations, even though we initially thought the price was high. The food, the service, with so many thoughtful extras included, was pampering. The set up of the beach dining area was worthy of a photo shoot. The resort is quiet and relaxing and secluded. Attention to detail in decor, gardening, and building layout was beautiful. Service was exemplary throughout our week and we took advantage of many activities including Thai massages, cooking course and pool and beach water sports. We enjoyed the fine dining in the restaurant and the casual poolside meals. Definitely will come back to Rocky's and recommend to our friends.
