Richard Pope, CEO of Infinite Luxury and Kata Rocks, said: “Phuket has bounced back from the pandemic years faster than anyone anticipated, and we look forward to welcoming old and new faces to the premier event on the Kata Rocks calendar”.
“This year, the 1980s theme will be a familiar one for everyone and a chance to relive those classic music and film years, so bring your leg warmers and help us celebrate our eighth year of the Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous.”
On the opening day, guests are welcomed to Kata Rocks, an oceanfront resort and residence on the at the southern end of Kata Beach featuring 34 Sky Pool Villas, a swimming pool, fitness centre and Infinite Luxury Spa. The first day includes luxury tastings and a barbecue for yacht owners, partners and VIP guests.
The second day sets sail with the fleet cruise. From Kata Rocks, the yachts commence a northern tour along Phuket’s west coast followed by a spectacular lunch at The Beach Phuket in Arinara Beach Resort before cruising back to Kata Rocks. Evening cocktails are followed by an á la carte dinner in The Clubhouse.
The third day starts with the Kata Rocks Poker Run breakfast and briefing before boats leave at 9am for a rally around Phuket island, during which participants pick up a playing card at five locations. Boats return to Kata Rocks in the early afternoon for prizegiving and a chance to sample food by the Kata Rocks Hangout ‘pop-up’.
This year’s closing party features an 80s-themed dress code with backdrops from classic movies such as ET, Back To The Future and Top Gun, while guests can rub shoulders with Phuket’s version of Michael Jackson, Madonna, George Michael, Freddie Mercury, Boy George and Tina Turner.
Throughout the three-day event, the pool and the sea off Kata Rocks (accessed via a private pontoon) will be used for water-based activities and a chance to inspect some of the yachts during the ‘Yacht Hop’.
