We came from the Celebrity Millennium Cruise for a chef’s tour and cooking class…Meeting the chef from the property and walking through a local market was very interesting. Seeing all the food sold from fresh fish to chicken, the unusual fruits we don’t see in the States. The class, food, and time of cooking was much more than expected. Great experience and opportunity. It is a must for future cruises! Thank you for a great time!


My most enjoyable tour of our trip so far. I would love to return to the Royal Cliff for a stay in Thailand


Gorgeous facility with wonderfully attentive staff. Greatly enjoyed the class!


Great Time! We will want to return and stay at the hotel. I would like to see more of cooking school and the hotel’s kitchen. Thank you for a fantastic time!
