Say Cheese and #SanookSnap To Win Stays at Anantara and Avani Hotels and Resorts

Loving your room with a three-country view in the Golden Triangle? #SanookSnap it! Partying with friends on a rooftop bar? #SanookSnap it! Enjoying a decadent floating breakfast in your beachside pool villa? #SanookSnap it! From the jungles up north, to the bright lights of Bangkok, right down to the lush Southern islands, the more you snap, post and hashtag #SanookSnap the more you’ll have the opportunity to win great holidays with Anantara and Avani Hotels and Resorts right across Thailand.

A play on the Thai word “sanook” meaning to have a good time, the #SanookSnap photo contest in Thailand offers pure, awe-inspiring escapism in the palm of your hand, serving as travel inspiration for everyone looking to escape the stresses of 2020.

Its interactive format means guests are active participants, rather than side-line spectators consuming content created by travel bloggers. For the duration of the campaign that will run until the end of the year, travellers are encouraged to share holiday snaps from travel “beauty spots” they discover not just at Anantara and Avani properties but at any location in Thailand, for a chance to win luxury stays and other prizes including a Scomadi Scooter. Whether it’s a scene-stealing swimming pool or a signature cake, if it can be enjoyed in the company of one’s loved ones, it is definitely “sanook”.

Those following the campaign on social media will discover Thailand through the eyes of an intrepid tourist, giving armchair travellers an insight into a destination that conventional marketing campaigns cannot. Rather than sharing carefully curated glossy imagery, Anantara and Avani hotels aim to tell authentic stories of real guests: a young couple escaping the city to luxuriate in a jungle spa; a multigenerational family surveying Bangkok’s panorama from a sky-scraping infinity pool; or friends reunited for a weekend retreat on one of the country’s many pristine islands. Real moments of joy, family time and bliss.

To take part in the campaign for a chance to win luxury stays, guests are encouraged to use the #SanookSnap hashtag and tag @anantara_hotels or @avani_hotels in their Instagram posts from across Thailand, whether they focus on the destination, experiences, design or food. Each week, we’ll give away luxurious hotel stays from stunning Anantara and Avani properties across Thailand to the most fabulous submissions.

The fun doesn’t stop here though, as entrants can post a photo from during their stay at an Anantara property in Thailand for a chance to win Anantara’s grand prize, an all-inclusive 3-night escape for two people at Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort including:

  • An unforgettable one-night Jungle Bubble experience
  • Return flights and airport transfers
  • Elephant experiences and excursions
  • Exquisite all-inclusive dining
  • 90-minute massages for two, and more
