A Date with California



Pam Thien for "Why in Frills"
March 14, 2011

Some say it's a statement, others consider it a way of life, but true believers say it's closer to a religion.  Supercars and luxury beachside resorts are synonymous with divine perfection.  Matchless in their partnership, a holy trinity: Cavallino Motors, American Express, and InterContinental Hua Hin, recently designed the experience of a lifetime for AMEX Platinum card members.

Whisked away from the hustle of Bangkok to the balmy beach town of Hua Hin, potential new parents of the Ferrari California were treated to a day (and night) of luxury.

Upon arrival to the coastal city and a carefree check-in at one of its grandest hotels, guests are soon greeted by a powerful, glossy black man-made marvel.

Ferrari California at InterContinental Hua Hin, Thailand

The titillating Ferrari California, complete with burgundy leather interior, lowered her hard top for a full exclusive.  She boasted a 4.3 Liters V8 engine with direct injection that delivers 485 Nm (Newton meter) of torque at 3500 rpm (revolutions per minute) and an output of 460 bhp (brake horse power) at 7750 rpm.  Her transmission was no less than sporty, of course, with 7-speed on automatic and 6-speed with manual.  The auto gear-shift ensured smooth acceleration (or shall we say transcendence?) to speeds of just about 310 kilometers per hour.

After your test drive, find your way around with the aid of your personal butler.  InterContinental Hua Hin Resort provides that service, and more, with a list of amenities so complete, you'd never want to leave.  Did we mention L'Occitane bath and body products?

The evening continued with a private party at the hotel's most coveted space, La RésidenceChef Kent Anon Masalong presided over all things palette-pleasing.  From classics such as roasted beef with and mashed potatoes to selected goat cheese with truffle-infused honey.  A live band and free flow wine graciously accompanied the night, and the beds at the hotel ensure a healthy rest (even for the guests that decided on a late after-party).

The price of this experience?  Nothing, only the pre-requisite of owning a Platinum American Express card.  And if that doesn't suit you, Cavallino Motors is on New Petchburi Road.  They're merely a phone call away.  Why not?
