The team from Ascott and DID behind the event
Some 40 clients were treated to a unique fine dining experience. They were assisted by visually-impaired waiters and given the chance to savour delectable European and Thai cuisine in total darkness. This allows all non-visual senses to be heightened for better appreciation of the smell and taste of the dishes which were specially prepared by DID’s chef.
Ms Sylvia Tan, Ascott’s Director of Sales & Marketing for Thailand, said: “Ascott takes pride in delivering memorable experiences for our clients. Through this dinner, we would like to thank all our clients for their relentless support over the years. They have contributed in making Ascott the market leader in Thailand’s serviced residence industry today. We will continue to improve upon our products and services to provide more value for our clients.”
