Director of Operation’s Message.

September has been even busier than usual and there’s no doubt that Tourism to Bangkok is currently extremely strong across so many Markets.
Driven by the booming economies of South, South East and above all East Asia, and still supported strongly by the Traditional Markets in Europe, Australia and the Americas, it seems at times, like we need to build some more rooms!
But no matter how busy we become or how many prestigious Events we have at the Arnoma Grand we still have to bear in mind that we are first and foremost a people business and we have to take care of the Team Members here. It’s for that reason that we arranged for a Holistic Health Care programme for our Team, where they learned how to stay in top physical condition and how to take care of their families’ health too.
We had a number of prestigious Events at Arnoma Grand as usual, and some Prize Winners from Shanghai staying with us.
We share below a few tips on one of Thailand’s favourite Budget priced dishes – Pad Thai. Available in Mango 99 at Arnoma Grand and one you will often find me sampling!

Arnoma Grand chosen as the venue for Multiple Prestigious Events in September

Arnoma Grand has two floors of Meeting Rooms, including the prestigious Arnoma Grand Ballroom, which has a high ceiling, is pillar less and can seat up to 800 in Theatre Style. Combined with our very central, easy access location, Arnoma Grand is a very popular Venue for meetings and functions of all types. In September we were fortunate to be chosen as the venue for numerous prestigious events, including functions organized by MK restaurants and the office of the Law Reform Commission of Thailand (OLRCT).
We were also honoured to welcome Khun Virat Shinvinitkul, Privy Councilor to King Rama X in the Certification ceremony for the third generation of the “Advance Corporate, Banking and Financial Service Law Programme”.

The Holistic Health Care Programme.

The demands of today’s commercial life are taxing on the mind and body. Increasing numbers of people are waking up to the fact that to enjoy work – and play – it is essential to ensure that the body is well maintained and prepared for work. Similarly, Employers are also aware that “A Healthy Workforce is a Productive Work Force”.
Particularly during the rainy season, Employers experience a high number of Employee absences owing to respiratory diseases, including colds, bronchitis and influenza. Such diseases can be prevented if we eliminate the risks beforehand.
To assist our Team Members in fighting seasonal bugs we recently arranged a lecture by the Team from The Ocean Life Insurance Company, titled “The Holistic Health Care Programme”

The Ocean Life Insurance company operates Holistic Health Care, with the aim of teaching people how to maintain their health in excellent condition and to protect themselves from the adverse effects of the current inclement weather. After the training, participants can protect themselves from respiratory diseases especially Influenza. Moreover, they also learn how to take care of their family members as well.

Prize winner from Yummy Planet.

Arnoma Grand Bangkok is well known in the important Chinese Market – not least for its fabulous location, right in the centre of Bangkok’s best selection of Shopping. We were recently invited to participate in a Yummy Planet Promotion organised by the Agriculture Section, Royal Thai Consulate-General Shanghai, and were happy to cooperate, donating some free room nights for the lucky winners.

Famous Thai dish “Pad Thai”.

Thailand’s food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. In many cases, quick to prepare, healthy, inexpensive and tasty, there are few dishes in the world that can compare.
Pad Thai is one of the top 5 most popular street food dishes in the world. A stir-fry dish comprising of rice noodles, tofu, bean sprouts and egg, Pad Thai is one of Thailand’s best-known and most popular dishes. As with so much Thai food, this dish uses the combination of sweet, sour and salty to great effect. The contrast of textures is also important.
Soft rice noodles are flavored with a balance of sugar, tamarind and lime juice or vinegar and fish sauce. Additional ingredients depend upon what is available to the cook: pork, chicken, and/or egg, firm tofu, shrimp, crunchy bean sprouts, roasted peanuts and salty pickled radish are all popular additions. Each diner is free to adjust the dish to his taste at the table with the addition of dried ground red chilies, white vinegar, sugar and fish sauce. Fresh lime wedges usually garnish the plate.
Pad Thai is a popular menu item in Mango 99, our specialist Thai restaurant, and is available for just THB 200 plus plus!

Singaporean Hospitality Students go on a learning journey at Arnoma Grand

Thailand is renowned throughout the world for the quality of its Hotels and the excellence of its Hospitality and Service Delivery, so it is no surprise that regional neighbours like Singapore are keen to learn how Thailand consistently achieves such high Guest satisfaction in its Hospitality Industry.
On 17 August, Arnoma Grand Bangkok was honoured to be the venue for a “learning journey” arranged by the Singaporean Company e2i – (the Employment and Employability Institute of Singapore) – the empowering network for Singaporean individuals and companies seeking skills and solutions for growth. The Students and their Instructors visited us to gain hospitality knowledge. The Group was interested to learn how Arnoma Grand runs our Operations, our strategy to manage business, CSR activities, Kitchen operation and Housekeeping, amongst other things.
The group was given a tour of the back areas of the Hotel and insights into the business by various Department Heads.
The photograph shows the happy group of Students after their Tour, posing with some of the Arnoma Grand Department Heads.

Arnoma Grand Bangkok’s Reservations Team – Ready to serve you

The Reservations Team is a much underrated but vital apart of the Team in any Hotel.
It’s the first point of contact with the Hotel for many Guests, and as the old saying goes “You only get one chance to make a first impression”.
The Reservations Team at Arnoma Grand handles all the Website, Email, mail and telephone
Correspondence we receive regarding reservations and, being an international Hotel, they need to be able to communicate in faultless English as well. They don’t need to know just about our Hotel Rooms, they have to be able to answer all types of queries from “How do I get to the Hotel” to “Can I arrange a surprise for my wife’s birthday”. So being a member of the Reservations Team is never dull! They also have to be able to assist Guests with payment and to be a source of exceptional knowledge in what the Hotel and the surrounding area has to offer.
All in all, it is a very demanding but interesting job and a vital part of the Hotel Operation.

Safe and Secure at Arnoma Grand

Being located in the very heart of a busy city means a Hotel has to be constantly vigilant and ready to identify and deal with any potential Security threat.
We take the safety of our Guests very seriously at Arnoma Grand and a recent incident, where an intruder managed to gain entry to the Hotel Public Areas was dealt with quickly and professionally by our Security Team. The intruder was unable to gain access to the Guest Floors and was quickly detained and removed from the building by the Security Team without endangering any of our Guests – or indeed, any of our Guests even being aware that there had been an incident.
The photograph shows Khun Jiam Kaewsorn, Security Supervisor and Khun Sulaiman Mayeng, both Security Guards from Securitas Security Guard (Thailand) Co receiving a reward and certificate of recognition from Arnoma Grand Bangkok Director of Operations Eric Brand for their outstanding performance.
