Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The 5-star Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach, a holiday beach resort in Phuket has been re-certified by Green Globe for the seventh year in a row and has achieved an outstanding compliance score of 86%.

Announcing the resort’s 2019 Green Globe re-certification, Mr. Harold Rainfroy, General Manager said, “We are honoured and proud of this achievement, as this only validates our efforts to help reduce our impact on the planet. Our team will keep on with the resort’s ethical and eco practices and will continue to develop programs towards social and environmental sustainability.”

Regarded as a pioneering hotel for sustainable tourism in Phuket, the Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach has been active in social and cultural sustainability, as well as ecologically friendly practices. Sustainable operations implemented at this property include an effective pollution prevention program, water consumption reduction and energy-efficient lighting system.

The Phuket resort also recently launched its ‘Orchid Garden’, an on-going project which aims not only to beautify the resort grounds but also help preserve and propagate several species of Thai native orchids.

An eco-focused initiative is in the pipeline as well, with the re-introduction of its ‘Organic Vegetable Garden and Plant Nursery’ where guests will have the chance to know more about organic planting and the ‘farm-to-table’ concept. The organic garden and nursery will host an array of vegetables and herbs including parsley, chili, eggplant, Thai basil, lemongrass and pandan. This project will also excite food lovers who are looking for a remarkable culinary experience. Once launched, guest may sign up for a Thai cooking class held in the organic garden, which will provide them with plenty of opportunities on picking their own herbs and spices needed for the cooking adventure.

For years, the Mövenpick Karon Beach Resort has also demonstrated a firm commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. The property works closely with the local community in Phuket, supporting local schools and donating to various charitable institutions. Furthermore, a Community Support Fund has been established where hotel guests are encouraged to voluntarily donate 1 USD per stay. The funds generated are used to provide assistance to the ‘Life Home Project’, ‘Phuket Has Been Good to Us’ foundation and the ‘Phuket House of Aged and Disaster Funds’.

The Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach is one of the leading eco-friendly sustainable hotels in Phuket, situated just steps away from the pristine sands of Karon Beach. The property features luxurious guestrooms and suites surrounded by lush tropical gardens, four swimming pools, a kid’s club, seven restaurants & bars, a world-class spa, a fully-equipped fitness center, as well as upscale meeting rooms perfect for private events and conferences.
