Phuket Hotels Association is inviting members of the public to take part in its Absolutely Fabulous Online Travel Sale – an online auction with prizes that will fund scholarships for talented young people in Phuket.

This is part of the Phuket Hotels Association Benefit (PHAB) 2023 campaign, a fundraising initiative which also includes PHAB 5, a charity gala dinner at Angsana Laguna Phuket on May 20, 2023.

Bidding in the online auction is open until midday (Thailand time, UTC+7 hrs) on June 15. Participants can bid for five-star stays and exciting experiences generously donated by sponsors in various destinations such as Dubai, Sydney and the Maldives, as well as Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Koh Samui. In addition to hotel stays, the auction includes a range of activities such as yacht charters, golf, tennis, surfing classes and gym memberships.

Proceeds from the auction will sponsor at least 20 hospitality scholarships and internships, exclusively for the benefit of young Phuket residents who would be otherwise unable to fund their education. To date, the association has successfully sponsored over 30 students studying hospitality and tourism in Phuket.

The PHAB 5 online auction is being continually updated with new prizes. Bidders can check back on their progress, make new offers and see what other prizes come up. Visit for more details.

Hosted at Angsana Convention & Exhibition Space, PHAB 5 is an upbeat fundraising event supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand. The evening will commence with welcome cocktails and live music, followed by an international buffet dinner featuring live cooking stations by some of the top chefs from Phuket’s best hotels, and drinks prepared by the island’s most creative mixologists.
Tickets are priced at THB 4,900 (US$143; premium) or THB 5,900 (VIP), with the proceeds also funding the hospitality scholarships.
