Helping Schools  

Anantara Hotels and Resorts recently donated over 3 million baht to the Raks Thai Foundation’s, 84 Schools Project. The project aims to help 6,720 disadvantaged children aged between 7-14 in 84 rural schools in poor and remote areas to teach them life skills and occupational skills necessary for them to become independent thinkers who contribute positively to their communities.

Cleans the Ocean   Although Anantara Kihavah has eradicated plastic bottles from the island, the pristine oceans still get littered with rubbish. The team does a monthly “Ocean Cleaning Day” to rid the surrounding reefs of garbage that can affect this fragile ecosystem.
Beach Cleaning   Together, the TDIC Operations team, Larsen and Toubro, Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara, Al Shafar (ASTCC) and Westcoast have formed a strong beach cleaning team of about 80-90 men and women, after
a few hours being windswept on the exposed beaches have collected about 15 cubic meters or about 2 tonnes of rubbish from the eastern shorelines of the island.
Anantara   Anantara in the Middle East recently participated in "Movember"  to help raise awareness of Prostate Cancer. So men start growing those moustaches for November. 
Coral Adoption   Rana and Haytham, our responsible tourists of the day, participated in reef creation and contributed to Anantara Kihavah Villas’ on-going conservation effort in the Maldives by adopting a coral frame. Now they can monitor the growth of their adopted coral frame online or, even better, return next year to see how their babies have grown. Congratulations Rana and Haytham, we’ll take real good care of your babies.
Elephants  

Anantara's largest charity event The King's Cup Elephant Polo Tournament has raised over US$600,000 which has been donated to various projects to help the elephants of Thailand.

Elephants for Kids  

As part of our new Elephants For Kids program at Anantara Golden Triangle we brought in some underprivileged kids from the local orphanage to learn more about our elephants. Check out these happy little faces!

Earth Hour  

The team at Anantara Hua Hin celebrated Earth Hour 2013 by switching off the resort lights for one hour and in addition to conserving energy guests were encouraged to light candles in the shape of a light bulb down on the beach.

Earth Hour  

Pollution is not the solution was the theme for Anantara Bophut’s Earth Hour theme. The team did a massive cleanup of Bophut Beach on Koh Samui before turning off their lights for one hour between 8.30pm – 9.30pm.

Earth Hour  

Anantara Rasananda went green for their earth hour celebrations where the resort invited guests to write messages of earthly love on banana leaves before turning out the lights and celebrating with a candle lit dinner on Koh Phangan’s most beautiful beach.

Earth Hour  

Desert Islands Resort & Spa Guests and Associates joined hands with the rest of the world for Earth Day 2013 and planted mangroves in the lagoon area. The mangrove trees were provided by Sir Bani Yas Island’s botanists & are 100% locally grown. Every little step counts! ”

John Roberts  

Congratulations to John Roberts on his promotion to Worldwide Conservation Director for Anantara. As Anantara’s conservation guru John will propose and oversee resort projects of a philanthropic and eco-friendly nature. For instance, he will help Anantara hideaways around the world implement the brand’s “365 Days of Good Deeds” initiative.

Green Globe  

Anantara Resorts - the first resort operator in the Maldives to have all its resorts Green Globe Certified – have embarked on an ambitious project to relocate corals from the healthy house reef at Anantara Veli to Anantara Dhigu’s lagoon. Coral reefs, the most diverse type of marine habitat, protect the Anantara Dhigu Island’s pristine beaches and guard the crystal-clear lagoon. They also support an astounding array of tropical fish, crustaceans and bizarre-looking molluscs.

Under the supervision and expert guidance of the resorts’ resident Marine Biologist, divers removed over 450 different coral species and relocated it onto purpose built iron frames and other artificial casings in the lagoon. The frames are environmentally friendly and designed to promote the flow of water and nutrients and are covered in sand to encourage coral to grow faster than it normally would. This eco-friendly exercise proved to be extremely successful as is evident by the fish and other sea life that it attracts.

Thai Elephant Therapy Project  

Anantara has always been known for its strong CSR based community activities and we are very proud to be a part of a world first - The Thai Elephant Therapy Project (TETP) - where autistic children develop their skills with the use of elephants as their working partners.

The free clinic held in Thailand in conjunction with Chiang Mai University and the Thai Elephant Conservation Centre allows the children to interact and bond with the elephants in a series of activities that focuses on their social interaction and emotional skills. The elephants are accompanied by their expert mahout handlers, alongside human therapists and researchers.

TETP is funded by money raised from Anantara’s largest charity event The King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament and judging by the smiles on the children’s faces the therapy sessions were a huge success.

Elephant Polo  

The 12th annual King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament has come to a close and this year Thailand’s most revered animals and the players had to not only compete against each other, but also celebrities, international rugby players and the most famous transgender dance troupe in Asia for attention. And whereas the hulky All Blacks and fabulous Tiffany’s showgirls stole hearts off the pitch, first timers Bangkok Bank triumphed overall when they beat Mercedes Benz for the winner’s trophy in a shock win. But with all the exciting trunk-to-trunk action at an end, it is the elephants that win, with the tournament now one of the largest charitable events in Thailand, raising over US$750,000 for projects that better the lives of Thailand’s elephant population.

Qasr Al Sarab   Keeping the Empty Quarter or at least the desert surrounding the award winning Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort looking its best, takes team work. Our associates at Qasr Al Sarab were spotted super early this morning doing a clean up and look at what they collected. Congrats guys on keeping our desert clean. 
 

Anantara associates recently (Sept 2013) participated in the Mai Khao Turtle Foundation Fun Run to help raise awareness for the turtles in the area. Mai Khao beach is one of the last places that the Green Turtle lays its eggs. The team also donated BHT 50,000 for the foundation. 

 

The Bali Hotels Association (BHA), working together with its member hotel Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, Bali, undertook a beach cleanup on Saturday, September 21, 2013, joining the International Coastal Cleanup. BHA members together with Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, Bali, Rotary Club Seminyak, media representatives and a numbers of local schools gathered at 7:00 am to clean the beach for one hour. The "Green Army" covered a distance of 2 kilometers picking up all rubbish comprised plastic bags, containers, cutlery, cans, cigarettes and household waste as well as abandoned shoes and fishing debris. In all, some 7,565 individual pieces of trash were collected weighing nearly 150 kilograms were hauled away.

 

December 2013 - Anantara recently donated BHT 1 Million to help fund an educational program set up by Think Elephants International to teach children the importance of elephant conservation in Thailand. Judging by what these kids have learnt to date the future of Thailand's elephants are in good hands.
