I've mostly attended the Christmas Eve Buffet at the Kantary Hills Hotel over the past 5 years!
It’s pricey, but a great treat for my Thai family and friends.
In 2017, I tried to book in late November, but there was “no room at the Inn”, and I had to make do with a Christmas Day buffet at another hotel.
That one was... OK... but not up to the Christmas Eve Buffet, Kantary Hills...
So for the 2019 event, we booked in early November.
The cost was 1800 baht per adult… about $75 CAD… and included gratuities and taxes.
The universe willing, and the Canadian $ not further collapsing… I’ll do it again next year.
