happy 10th anniversary king’s cup!

June 29th, 2011


Introduced to Thailand by Anantara in 2001, the King Cup’s Elephant Polo Tournament is turning ten along with the Anantara brand! The annual tournament will be held September 4-11 in the royal seaside town of Hua Hin. The charity tournament has expanded from a two-day event with six participating teams into a week-long extravaganza with twelve participating teams and players from at least fifteen different countries! Although the event has grown, the tournament has managed to remain true to its charitable roots. To date, the tournament has raised over $300,000, primarily for the National Elephant Institute which provides medical care, sustenance, employment, and mahout training for Thailand’s elephant population.

In honor of the birthday celebration, Anantara Hua Hin is offering an Elephant Polo Package from September 3rd-11th that includes accommodations, daily breakfast for two, daily lunch at the polo pitch, roundtrip transfers between the hotel and pitch, and premium spectator access. Package rates begin at $254 per night in a Premium Garden View room before tax and service charge. Additional nights will be based on the Best Available Rate with breakfast.

Attending the tournament is a must, so start packing your finest polo attire!
