Have you heard the news? Phuket is now officially open to fully vaccinated travellers from any country. Thanks to these new measures, you can now meet friends from abroad in Phuket, or plan a trip to with your family and friends to take advantage of the great hotel deals there now. Accor has now reopened their extensive collection of hotels and resorts in Phuket, offering the best curated experiences for families especially. We’ve got our eye on the V Villas Phuket MGallery private pool villas for a socially-distanced yet indulgent vacation. Guests will get to enjoy a 20% discount for a 7-night stay, followed by a 30% discount for a 14-night stay as part of Accor’s special promotions.
Led by Srettha Thavisin of Sansiri, “Live Love Joy: Pass the art forward, towards the joy of life”, sees a rally of 13 unique artists ranging from 7 -75 years old to pass on positivity through art. The project aims to spread happiness to people through after a year of lockdowns. Throughout October, expect a bounty of fun activities from dedicated IG filters to Art Hopping. The latter involves mini pop-up exhibitions at Sansiri properties such as XT Huay Khwang, EDGE Central-Pattaya, THE BASE Saphan Mai, La Habana, dCondo Hideaway and Anasiri Bangna, and more. You can also watch the “Live Love Joy” campaign video here.

From October 3 onwards, guests can go for the infamous Sunday brunch at the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel again, hosted by Samrub Samrub Thai. Spanning Parichart Court, Aqua Bar, Madison and Spice Market, you’ll get to enjoy the hotel’s most beloved offerings from 11:30 a.m. to 3p.m. From fresh-made sushi and flame-frilled meats, to Peking duck and crispy pork, your Sunday is guaranteed to be highly celebrated. For Covid-19 protective measures, both indoor and outdoor tables are arranged in a socially-distanced manner. To make a reservation, call 02 126 8866.

If you are still a bit cautious to dine out, try premium-seasoned sweets and savouries by the Park Hyatt’s chefs, served right to your doorstep. Discerning diners can get a taste of the Park Hyatt’s signature dishes, such as the Australian Black Angus Beef Ribeye, Kurobuta Pork Chop, Miso Black Cod, pizzas, salads, pastas, New York Cheese Cake, and much more. The delivery menu is available daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. via Line Man and the Hotel’s Facebook Shop. See the full menu here.

Are you keeping up with the Scopes x Porsche event? For this week, we’re into the inspiring mini film called “I Am Home” featuring Vietnamese hip-hop artist Suboi. The project focuses on a visual metaphor which poses the questions: “What if you were home? What would each room represent? What kind of energy powers it? Is it peace? Fear? Or creativity?” Reflective and introspective, Suboi also did an interview for Scopes sharing personal stories, as well as the perspectives behind her creative collaboration.
