The adopted SERVQUAL concept includes with five dimensions, namely, tangibility, reliability, responsiveness, assurance, and empathy. The current study employs a mixed methodology. The qualitative study was conducted by using the netnography approach with opinion mining technique to analyze the online review, develop the word cloud, and identify the key themes of spa service quality in stage 1. The findings from stage 1 are utilized as the recommendation for the questionnaire development in stage 2. In stage 2, the quantitative analysis was employed to examine the experienced Pattaya spa-goers’ satisfaction toward thier spa experiences by using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and ANOVA analysis to compare the findings between senior spa-goers and non-senior spa-goers. The findings reveal that there are some significant differences between two groups, which contributes to both theoretical and practical implications.

With the great advance of SM technologies coupled with the support of digital technologies can lead to the opportunity for SM to thrive by nascent entrepreneurs. As such, it could transform the business model where family-owned businesses; particularly, the second or third owner generation leverages the empowerment of SM tools by integrating such new technologies with its own legacy system. The goal of this study was to identify and explore the elements that influence SMEs' decisions to use SM as a marketing platform in rural areas. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT-2) with the extension of three new factors, including personal innovativeness, perceived fear, and competitive pressure, was proposed along with the original constructs in the UTAUT-2 model. The empirical findings reveal that competitive pressure, performance expectations, perceived fear, pricing value, and personal innovativeness all have a significant impact on the intention to use and adopt SM, according to the research findings. Hedonic motivation, however, has not revealed a significant impact of such an intention. This research provides theoretical and practical guidance on how SME owners, managers, and policy makers may adopt and implement a strategic plan on SM adoption during the COVID-19 pandemic.</p> 2022-06-28T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Burapha Journal of Business Management Burapha University https://so01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/BJBM/article/view/253268 The Development of a Training Process Model For Four-Star Hotels in Pattaya City 2022-02-03T16:24:51+07:00 Paratchanun Charoenarpornwattana paratchanunc@gmail.com <p>The purposes of this study are to explain the steps in developing a training process and to develop a training process model for four-star hotels in Pattaya City.
