PHUKET, Thailand - On the 20th of December 2017, Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa celebrated the 2017 Long Year Service Awards as a way to commemorate the very core of this organization: its Team Members. Not just regular Team Members, though, but highly committed and fervently loyal men and women who have made the biggest resort in Phuket their second home for five, 10, and even 20 years! This unmatched dedication was rewarded with a memorable night where the celebrities were each of them.

The evening began with an aperitif at the Grand Ballroom Foyer, a perfect site to get together and socialize prior to the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony. Members of every single department were taking photos and laughing together in colorful and elegant clothes, leaving their uniforms aside and showing us a bit more of their persona through their attires.   

The event continued inside a wonderfully decorated Grand Ballroom that seemed to be just the perfect match for an event of this magnitude. "It is very special to have so many long service team members in our beautiful resort and this Loyalty confirms once again that Hilton is a fantastic place to work," said Markus Kaliss, general manager, Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa, who officially opened the ceremony with a speech dedicated to those long-standing team members and proceeded to start with the awards. One by one, Team Members stepped up to the stage to receive the certificates that represented the hotel's forever gratitude for their hard work and dedication.

Napaporn Sae-afh, Supervisor at Thai Thai (Hilton Phuket's fine dining restaurant) has been part of Hilton Phuket Arcadia's team for 10 years. When questioned about her experience during all these years, she said, "These 10 years have been a great experience. A lot of learning and getting to do a bit of everything. In our team, we always cover each other's back. When someone can't do something I am always ready to help him or her." The memorable night finalized with a delicious buffet and a show with live performers and music.
