Celebrating the community, culture
and environment that make our resort special

From the moment we began building Aleenta, our guiding principles have been to respect the environment and to cultivate practices that have a positive impact on our planet as well as the communities who host our hotels and our guests.

We strive to lessen our carbon footprint by blending traditional practices with modern technologies so that we can provide memorable experiences that our guests can feel good about.

The following highlights illustrate our commitment to being a leader in sustainable, ethical and community focused hospitality.

 

We began removing single-use plastics in our guest rooms and dining outlets long before it was trendy!

  • from day one we have provided guests with bathroom amenities in refillable ceramic dispensers; avoiding hundreds of thousands of plastic bottles along the way.
  • glass water bottles in the villas ensure less waste and better water quality to keep our guests hydrated.
  • smoothies, juices & cocktails are sipped through gorgeous glass straws (paper on request).
  • the complimentary footwear provided in villas are made from cotton and are professionally washed; ensuring they are reused not refuse!

 

Guest amenities (soap, shampoo, shower gel, conditioner and spa products) are 100% natural and made exclusively for Aleenta by a local supplier using locally sourced essential oils and with ZERO chemical perfumes, parabens or animal testing.

  • for guests who would like to take something home, the locally-made celadon containers used in the rooms, and the amenities themselves, are available for purchase in our refill  boutique, Galleria.  Guests who have their own bottle(s) can buy as much or as little as desired, from organic shampoo to body wash to mosquito repellant.

 

While reducing waste generation is our first priority, minimising what is sent to landfill, or incinerated, is equally important.  We take great pride in our efforts to:

  • compost food and organic waste into nutrient rich fertiliser for our gardens.
  • sort plastics, paper and metals for recycling.
  • sort glass and wood for reuse and / or recycling.
  • donate aluminium cans to the Prostheses Foundation (Chiang Mai) which produces artificial limbs. To date, they have given new life to over 20-thousand amputees … for free!

 

The resort's low rise design was carefully planned to protect the local ecosystem and preserve the mountain views; all contours, soil, trees and natural water resources were kept either in their original form or utilised with minimal change.

 

We use responsibly sourced natural materials, such as engineered woods, that help us prevent deforestation, reduce waste generated (the engineered woods last about 5x longer than pure hardwoods), and improve interior air quality by avoiding products that off-gas dangerous VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) commonly found in synthetic materials and the finishing treatments often used on pure hardwoods.

 To minimise the impact of water usage on our neighbouring communities:

  • every villa has its own water treatment system; utilising microorganisms and enzymes rather than harsh chemicals to treat the water.
  • floating aerators oxidate the water in storage ponds, promoting good bacterial growth.
  • we maintain healthy water gardens by using a variety of aquatic plants that absorb carbon dioxide and oxygenate the water; keeping it clear, with less algae, and allowing our fish to thrive.
  • treated water is analysed monthly by a professional laboratory to ensure quality and safety.
    • water released back into the environment meets or exceeds government standards
    • the government reviews waste water treatment as part of our annual license renewal
  • to conserve freshwater supplies, grey-water is used for watering gardens and landscape.

 

The water heating system was designed to ensure guests can enjoy hot water while minimising heat loss and electricity usage by:

  • using copper pipes rather than steel or PVC.
  • insulating all the water heaters.
  • capturing heat from air conditioning systems to help heat the water.

 

To reduce our use of carbon based electricity we:

  • designed the buildings to maximise natural daylight usage.
  • coated all those glass windows and doors with Solar Guard film (St.Gorbain ©), thereby reducing 60% heat transmission, 99.9%  of UV  and keeping the rooms cooler without the need to constantly use air-conditioning. 
  • installed solar panels to power resort operations and have reduced consumption of conventional electricity by about 25%.
  • have budgeted for additional solar panels to be installed within five-years.

 

Diverting GHG emissions from the waste management system by slowly releasing methane into the soil rather than directly into the air.

We have embedded ourselves into the local community by:

  • hiring locals and giving them the opportunity to make their community proud
    • our Thai Boxing teacher is a local Muay Thai Chaiya Champion
  • adopting Khao Pilai School and assisting with:
    • annual improvement projects such as building a new playground and library.
    • annual scholarships for students.
    • outing days that provide students with new experiences and environmental awareness.
  • organising regular beach cleanups throughout the year.
  • supporting local marine research and conservation via our charitable foundation, Pure Blue, which sponsors two turtle sanctuaries; Koh Kloi and Thai Mueang.

 

As a small, luxury hotel, we focus on ensuring our guests are provided with genuine and ethical opportunities to experiences the exceptional range of activities that surround us.

  • complimentary wellness programs such as yoga, tai chi and meditation blend local expertise with stunning mountain and ocean backdrops.
  • we offer guests a ‘taste’ of the local flavour with interactive learning experiences such as cooking classes, extracting aloe vera and folding pandan leaves.
  • our ‘Anti-Animal Exploitation Policy’ means we do not sell tickets, accept commissions or in anyway promote tours and shows that exploit animals (i.e. elephant rides, tiger or dolphin shows).
  • we do promote rewarding and immersive experiences such as releasing rescued or newly hatched sea turtles into the sea … it’s Turtle-ly worth it!

 

Our chefs source locally and ethically to ensure fresh and authentic flavours.

  • our menu showcases unique ingredients only available from our local area.
  • seafood is from the fishing pier near the hotel; our chef frequently gets first pick.
  • in our organic garden, we grow hard to find herbs needed for special international dishes.
  • for those trying to reduce meat consumption, or dedicated vegans, we have a diverse menu of healthy and delicious options.

 

We are a family from Denmark - 4 adults and 2 children - who have just visited Aleenta Phuket is probably the most beautiful, most luxurious and most private resort we have ever visited. We stayed in a 3 bedroom beachfront villa with a unique all inclusive concept that included everything from food and drink to daily spa treatments. Cocktails were perfect and beautifully served. The food at the 2 restaurants was unique and out of the ordinary. The staff was welcoming and the service absolutely perfect.

We stayed in a Beachfront 3-Bedroom Private Pool Villa (Villa 550) and it was so amazing. Absolute privacy, both around your private pool and also on the private beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve stayed at.

Wir hatten heir einen wirklich tolle Aufenthalt und waren durchweg mehr wie zufrieden mit dem Angebot. Alles war wie angepriesen, die Erwartung gemessen an dem näheren Preis wurde definitiv erfüllt und das absolut herausragende Personal hat die wenigen Kritikpunkte die es gab wieder ausgeglichen. Wer ruhigen Spa- oder Fitnessurlaub sucht ist heir absolut richtig. Sehr gut wenn absolute Ruhe gewollt ist. Es gibt keine echten Einkaufsmöglichkeiten- mal abgesehen von den kleinen Shops entlang der Straße, keinerlei Freizeitangebot außerhalb der Hotelanlage und nur ein brauchbares Lokal in der Nähe. Wir hatten die Pool Villa am Strand und waren sehr zufrieden. Toll ausgestattet, sehr bequemes Bett, spektakuläre Aussicht und liebevolle Kleien Aufmerksamkeiten die zweimal am Tag platziert werden im Zimmer. Ganz klar die Stärke in diesem Hotel. Sehr freundlich, geduldig und kompetent mit allen Angelegenheiten. Sie organisierten alle Termin, halfen mit dem Transfer und einem Kleien Unfall den es mit unserem Gepäck gab, richteten die Klimaanlage extrem schnell und entschuldigten sich mit Champagner. Wir haben uns so willkommen gefühlt!!! Das Frühstück ist extrem gut- vom feinsten. Zimmerservice ist auch toll und preislich so angemessen das wir dass fast täglich gemacht haben. Das Lokal auf der Terrasse hat mir nicht so gefallen und die lokale Küche in der Mitte der Anlage war nur in Ordnung. Größter Kritikpunkt warn allerdings die Cocktails- die waren leider schrecklich!! Sehr vielfältig und ausreichend. Wir nahmen das kostenlose Yoga in Anspruch, aber auch sehr viele der bezahlten Spa Angebote und das private Thai-Boxen. Alles hat mir sehr gut gefallen und die Trainer waren durchweg begeistert dabei. Wie gesagt, das Personal ist hier VORBILDLICH!

Wer Ruhe, Privatsphäre und Erholung sucht ist hier genau richtig. Wir hatten eine Grand Deluxe Pool Villa und waren sehr zufrieden.

Stayed for one week. Everything in this hotel was fantastic. The food was delicious (good selection) and the cocktails and smoothies are all extremely fresh and taste amazing. The breakfast is probably the best we’ve had at a hotel. Beautiful facilities directly on the beach which has comfortable sun loungers, sofas and bean bags to choose from. We stayed in the loft room which had plenty of space and everything we needed (including access to a second pool). Finally, the spa is highly recommended! Both the location/facilities and the staff make this place a truly excellent and memorable experience!

The Aleenta staff was fantastic!
They made sure everything was on point and beautiful for our wedding. Great servers who made each meal an excellent experience. We will definitely be back. Thank you!!

5 star all the way. Fantastic service, attention to detail and next level spa. The only downside was the location but that’s also kind of the point. It’s private. The views from the pool/restaurant/beachside villas are amazing. Switch between visits to the sea and pool in seconds whilst sipping amazing cocktails using the freshest fruit. Last but not least, make sure you take the spa package. They’re amazing. This resort is pure luxury and we’ll definitely return.

I was really looking forward to a quiet relaxing getaway where I can swim, exercise, eat well and pamper myself; the Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa met and even surpassed all my expectations.

I booked the Ocean View Loft for my stay and was extremely happy with the choice. The loft is incredibly spacious with a very hip modern interior design and plenty of natural light. Upon entering the room you immediately notice the two story window facing an exquisite infinity pool which blends into the bluest ocean and sky. It's a view that will leave you standing in place for a few minutes taking it all in! The sliding doors open to your private terrace with steps into the pool. There are also two sun-loungers on the terrace which were an ideal place for enjoying the late afternoon sun and watching the incredible sunsets. On the second level of the loft there is an extra large king-size bed with the softest sheets and linens. The comfortable bed provided the ideal rest that I needed after long days in the sun. The high ceiling of the loft meant that I could enjoy the same ocean views from bed and waking up to these views everyday was just breathtaking! The loft has a large bathroom with all the amenities you would expect from a five-star hotel, including a superb shower and a Jacuzzi bath. The room had good internet WiFi coverage and I never had any issues with reception in the entire resort. The room was impeccably cleaned each day and I enjoyed the complimentary fresh fruit that was provided during turn-down service.

We stayed at the 4 bedroom villa for 2 Nights and totally loved the sizable private pool, shaded patio in the center where we ate, drank and chat late into the night. The location is about an hour from Phuket town but since our plan was just to stay put in the villa and chill so it was perfect for us. Service was warm and great - they reached out before we arrived to ask if we had any special requests so this was a nice touch. The fantastic breakfast was a bonus!

I think the wellness retreat with Aleenta is definitely a trip anybody should sign up for at least once. It is a journey to self realization and our Mother Earth. I truly enjoyed the stay there thanks to the warm hospitality by the Aleenta team and my wellness host, Alisa :) Additionally, I left the place with glowing skin and positive energy. I really look forward to visiting Aleenta soon!
