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!
The Rocky's Team
Saint Valentine's Day, also known as Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them. However it is a very important day for couples, it is a day where traditionally we show our partner just how much we love them. Of Course at Rocky’s we have prepared a very Romantic Evening to celebrate this day. Our Guest will be delighted with the menu and the Romantic setting we will have at The Dining Room. In the image below you will see the Romantic Menu we have for this very Special Night
Apart from this delicious and Romantic Menu we will have suprises that will make this Valentine's Day an unfgorgetable experience for all of our Guests.
Testimonials from our Guests
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.
