Unesco Sustainable Pledge & Aleenta

Unesco Sustainable Pledge & Aleenta - Aleenta Resorts & Spas in Thailand

Today Aleenta Resorts signed the UNESCO Sustainable Tourism Pledge in partnership with the Expedia Group and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)

Aleenta Resorts & Our UNESCO Sustainable Pledge

1. What actions have you already taken to reduce and eliminate single-use plastic?

Eco-led efforts in the Aleenta resorts include sourcing glass bottles and removing all single-use plastic from the restaurants and bars. As well as this, stylish stainless steel water bottles are handed to guests on arrival, which can be refilled anytime during their stay at the self-service water stations that are conveniently located. Additionally, toiletry products are presented in locally manufactured celadon containers filled with essential oils-based products and bio-degradable bin bags are used in rooms. For those wanting to indulge in some retail therapy outside of the resort, special shopping totes can be found in the wardrobes to encourage guests to refuse plastic bags when shopping, promoting change even whilst outside of the resort.

2. What actions do you plan to take in the next 12 months to eliminate single-use plastic?

For the back of house, we cannot go completely single-use plastic-free because some of our suppliers are still delivering items with plastic wraps. We are however constantly and continually working with our suppliers to change the behaviour and habit and such habit and behaviour change takes time, but not impossible.

For example, our spa amenities and products are now being delivered in stainless steel containers which we are returning to the supplier to refill. It used to be in plastic bottles. The plastic bottles that our products are delivered in are cleaned and being reused, for example, we are selling in bulk all of our shampoo and shower gel and all of our guest amenities to our guests, but not in small little plastic bottles. We give them the option to bring their own bottles, buy our ceramic dispenser, or we give them the reused plastic container that we have cleaned for free. It’s a reuse culture that we need to all learn.

3. What actions have you already taken to support culture and local communities around your property?

Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa

The team at Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa works with Baan Nong Ka School to get local students engaged in learning about natural fertilisers and sustainable agricultural methods.

Also, Aleenta properties in Thailand lead the way in terms of cleaning up local communities. The Aleenta Hua Hin team partners up with Trash Hero Pranburi to clean up the shores near the property. To protect the surrounding environment, the Aleenta team does its part tidying up the locale, especially its natural and tourist attractions.

Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa

Guest at Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa can rescue endangered turtles and release them back into their natural habitat in a rich, rewarding and immersive experience.

Also, Aleenta properties in Thailand lead the way in terms of cleaning up local communities. The Aleenta Phuket team participates in a series of road cleaning activities on Natai Beach Road, which is famed for stunning sunset views. To protect the surrounding environment, the Aleenta team does its part tidying up the locale, especially its natural and tourist attractions.

4. What actions do you plan to take in the next 12 months support culture and local communities around your property?

To continue all the effort we are already taking, it’s our long-term commitment to create a positive impact on our precious environment, as well as the local community.
