Anantara’s 365 Days of Good Deeds

For over ten years, Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has been committed to creating luxury travel experiences that also benefit the environment and local communities. All Anantara properties across Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, the Maldives and Middle East immerse themselves in local initiatives that give back to the community and environment, thereby enhancing the social and environmental surroundings of each Anantara destination. Anantara has brought all these good deeds together and at least one good deed will take place for every single day.

Whether it’s rescuing street elephants in Thailand, marine turtle protection in Phuket, coral rejuvenation in the Maldives or supporting local farmers in Indonesia, Anantara is dedicated to carrying out a corporate social responsibility programme at a grassroots level in each of its exotic locations around the world.
