Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort secures Tourism Authority of Thailand environmental award
Sustainable retreat, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort - has announced that it has been recognised once again for its environmental efforts having been selected as the Marine Category winner in the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) UK Responsible Thailand Awards, for its ongoing efforts to preserve the ocean and contribute to a cleaner planet.
This prestigious title was presented to Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort by the TAT’s UK office in a “Virtual Responsible Thailand” evening on 8th December 2020. This marks the latest in a series of important honours achieved by the property in recent years, many of which are in relation to its conservation projects.
Sustainability is woven throughout the destination’s entire operations. A guardian of the sea, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has introduced a wide range of preservation projects, including mangrove planting, coral propagation, fish breeding and release programmes, coastal clean-ups and community outreach programmes. These are driven by a resident marine biologist at the Marine Discovery Centre, a purpose-built facility that serves as an educational hub for the entire region.
The onsite PADI dive centre is engaged in the UN’s Green Fins project, which is dedicated to preserving the area’s delicate biodiversity through coral replanting and other projects. A clownfish adoption programme allows guests to pay to adopt their own “Nemo”, with the proceeds being used to fund other important projects. Visitors can also take part in a series of eco-sensitive excursions and off-the-beaten-track tours, such as sea kayaking, mangrove tours, cave explorations and visits to coastal villages. And of course, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has eliminated single-use plastic throughout its operations.
Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort General Manager, Chao Treenawong notes “we are thrilled to win the Marine Category at the TAT UK’s Responsible Thailand Awards. The issue of conversation is very close to our hearts; our Marine Discovery Centre has enabled us to ramp up our environmental programmes and engage with guests, local residents and school children to protect the underwater eco-systems of Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi National Park. The world’s oceans play a huge role in absorbing CO2, so our initiatives can also play an important role in protecting the entire planet from the effects of climate change.”
Opened in 2018, the Marine Discovery Centre at Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is an interactive hub that features indoor and outdoor exhibition areas, visual displays showcasing the region’s diverse sealife, a video room and aquariums, providing a fascinating window into the vibrant undersea world.
The TAT UK’s Responsible Thailand Award is the latest in a series of important accolades achieved by Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort. It was awarded “3 Leaves” by the Green Leaf Foundation, has been recognised by the Thai Hotels Association as a “Plastic Free Resort”, and received the “Green Leaf Certificate” for successfully promoting conservation awareness within the travel and tourism industry. Most recently in September 2020, the resort was certified as being carbon neutral by the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization.
