PHUKET, THAILAND--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2016) - Travelers are invited to explore the flavor and spirit of Phuket this summer season as Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa invites guests to celebrate a Global Day of Discovery. This June 16th marks the kick off of this vibrant, culturally inspired event at the iconic Phuket beach resort, set along beautiful Mai Khao Beach.

Embark on a Tease, Tour & Taste at 2:00 PM, which invites guests to discover the art of spirit making at the CHALONG BAY rum factory. Indulge in the subtle flavors of Phuket's own indigenous, handcrafted rum. Guests will leave the hotel and set out via bus to the factory, where they'll hear stories about Phuket, enjoy snacks and drinks, and stop at a local pottery crafter to see how bowls are made and buy souvenirs.

Guests arrive at the factory, where they'll enjoy a press conference and presentation, and set out for a factory tour by a factory specialist. Discoverers will learn how the rum is made, from sugar canes to the distilling process. Afterwards, travelers are invited to discover and create CHALONG BAY inspired cocktails.

Following the tour and drinks, guests can savor inspired fresh, local seafood, house-made BBQ recipes, and local Thai and International pop and acoustic music. This journey through the art of spirit making celebrates some of Phuket's most unique flavors.

Afterwards guests will head back to the Renaissance resort and villas in Phuket, where a scenic Thailand beach vacation waits. Just beyond the resort guests can visit Similan, Phi Phi Islands and many of the best dive sites in Thailand with ease, or spend the day on Surin Beach, or Mai Khao Beach, right outside the hotel. Guests can explore other local sights, or relax right at the hotel and unwind with a treatment at Quan Spa.
