Welcome to the Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas CSR page.
The International Ecotourism Society defines ‘Ecotourism’ as: ‘Responsible travel to natural areas that conserve the environment and improve the wellbeing of local people’. Ever since our first resort opened in Thailand’s royal seaside town of Hua Hin, we have strived to ensure that our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) equates to sustainable tourism operations by integrating social and ecological responsibility into our core business operations.
Our commitment to ethical and environmentally friendly practices commences at the pre-opening stage of every resort. We are continuously introducing innovative technological measures that contribute to the preservation of the surroundings in order to minimise the impact our business activities have on the environment. We are actively engaged in supporting our local communities, which requires action from our Directors, Shareholders, Management Team and Associates, as well as guests and partners, on a continual daily basis.
The resort and area experiences we offer encourage guests to become involved in good social and ecological practices whilst on holiday. The popularity of our activities, such as coral planting to rejuvenate reefs in the Maldives, elephant conservation in Chiang Rai, and English teaching at local orphanages, mangrove planting and dugong spotting in Si Kao, provides evidence that our guests really care. These unique destination experiences serve to enrich the overall guest journey, and guests also leave knowing that they have given something back to the environment and local community.
