LOS ANGELES, California – Green Globe Certification is delighted to announce the reopening of the Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa Koh Samui in Bophut, Thailand – an Elite Green Globe Member. After an extensive six months renovation of all rooms, facilities, and meeting spaces, this rejuvenated property presents a Koh Samui resort lifestyle that is unlike any other.
Key new features include contemporary Thai design, larger rooms, deluxe rooms’ new option to add an extra bed, five suite categories, and Anantara beachfront pool suites offer a spacious 24-square-meter private swimming pool. The complete refurbishments of public areas include the lobby, the High Tide restaurant, and the Eclipse Bar. The Full Moon restaurant now offers a gourmet char grill concept, sitting above the pool with views out to the ocean.
Ideal for business travelers, couples, and families alike, Anantara Bophut also boasts an impressive children’s club, with a range of activities, such as “little chef classes,” or batik and umbrella painting, to keep the younger guests happy and entertained.
For years, this luxury hotel has demonstrated corporate social responsibility and sustainable tourism, integrating ethical and environmentally friendly practices into its core business operations and management.
“We are constantly reinforcing our commitment towards environmental conservation and the requirements of Green Globe standards, always researching new methods or technologies to help us reducing our eco-footprint,” said Manish Jha, General Manager at the Anantara Bophut Resort & Spa Koh Samui. “Whether it is as simple as watering our garden with recycled water or going a step further and changing plastic shampoo and soap bottles in every guest room to glass containers, we do make every possible effort to protect the environment.”
All Anantara properties across Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, the Maldives, and the Middle East immerse in local initiatives that give back to the community and environment, enhancing the social and environmental surroundings of each Anantara destination. 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 program at a grassroots level in each of its exotic locations around the world.
