Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort receives top environmental award

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort receives top environmental award
January 27, 2020

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is the first property in southern Thailand’s Krabi province to receive a Gold Level Green Hotel Award in recognition of its ongoing commitment to sustainability.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort operates to a deeply sustainable philosophy, incorporating advanced methodology in waste management, product sourcing, recycling and community programmes. The resort also integrates a series of initiatives to ensure guests enrich their travels through learning and positive contribution to the environment and community.

Certified by the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion (DEQP), under the Thai Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the Green Hotel Awards are in their 12th year and are recognised as an industry benchmark in Thailand.

Created to recognise hotels that have successfully implemented measures to protect the environment, reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to the sustainability of Thailand’s tourism industry, the awards are categorised into three levels: Gold, Silver and Bronze, with the Gold representing the highest achievement.

Chao Treenawong, General Manager of Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort advised “we are delighted to receive the Gold Level Green Hotel Award. At Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and ensure that every step is taken to preserve and protect our eco-system for future generations.

“Moving forward, we will continue to enhance our operations and achieve an eco-friendly, carbon-neutral future for this exquisite destination.”

The Marine Discovery Centre is the hub for all activities and is led by resident marine biologist, Kasama 'Bom' Nualsri, who has previously worked for Thailand’s Department of National Parks, Wildlife & Plant Conservation, and the Department of Marine & Coastal Resources. He is now leading the resort’s marine conservation efforts, including projects such as coral preservation, breeding and release programmes.

Guests of all ages can enjoy educational and entertaining sessions at the Marine Discovery Centre, learning about Phi Phi Island Village’s latest initiatives through a series of action-packed activities and interactive exhibitions, ranging from a cinema to a laboratory and coral planting activities in the resort’s underwater coral propagation nursery. Children are invited to help feed the clownfish every day, and even adopt their own 'Nemo'!

This is the latest in a series of environmental accolades achieved by Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort; in 2019 it was awarded '3 Leaves' by the Green Leaf Foundation, and it has also been recognised by the Thai Hotels Association as a 'Plastic Free Resort'.
