The hugely famous World Gourmet Brunch - one of the most popular events of the festival - will take place on the last day of the event, Sunday, 25 September. 

This is the last chance to sample their creations, and offers more availability than the exclusive dinner events.

The package starts at THB 23,900 ($682 U.S.)  for two people, including overnight accommodation in a deluxe view room, access to Kasara lounge (including buffet breakfast and evening canapés) and tickets to any selected World Gourmet Festival.*
