Phulay Bay Introduces Newest Ambassador: Koko, the Baby Elephant

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Krabi, Thailand – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi, Thailand, just introduced a new program designed to welcome elite families traveling to this special corner of the world: “Phulay Baby.”

Phulay Baby combines daily activities with booking amenities and conveniences ideal for parents traveling with their children or for families traveling in groups together.

Phulay Baby supervised activities are offered daily with options such as Thai baking classes, traditional Thai dancing lessons and kid-friendly yoga. Traditional arts and crafts include coconut leaf weaving, shell wind chime creating and batik painting. Kids who cannot get enough of the water will enjoy feeding the fish in the pond each morning, and kids two and over can take swimming lessons in a private pool with the Reserve’s recreational instructors.

A highlight to visiting the Reserve is meeting Koko, The Reserve’s own two-year-old baby elephant and Phulay Baby’s ambassador. Koko greets families and shows off his favorite skills including soccer, playing the harmonica, doing handstands and giving rides to little ones.

The culinary team has designed kid-friendly menus at each of the four restaurants that are culturally extensive and designed to please and expand adventurous young palates.

The ESPA at Phulay Bay also welcomes kids and teens with “Mom and Me” and “Dad and Me” packages that include a combination of foot massage, Thai massage, and scalp massage tempered to age-appropriate pressure. Teens are also welcome to try a gentle manicure/pedicure combination.

Families wanting to experience the “Phulay Baby” program first-hand can book a Friends and Family getaway at Phulay Bay that includes the following amenities designed especially for families:

• Round trip shuttle transfers from Krabi airport with exotic juices and cookies
• Daily breakfast for four at Jampoon restaurant
