Angsana Laguna Phuket in World’s Environment Day

In conjunction with World Environment Day 2018, Angsana Laguna Phuket rolled out our annual Stay for Good initiative – Greening Communities Together programme for this June. Together with 50 volunteers and 12 guests were joining us on planting 1,600 trees around the resort.

Additionally for this year we will focus on beating plastic pollution with the message “if you can’t reuse it, refuse it”.

Therefore cleaning communities will continue to be a core component of Greening Communities Together, with awareness campaigns and social/environmental guest engagement activities.

We are happy to continue support all activities to emphasize the importance of global environment.

Laguna Phuket Marks 12 Years of Painting the World Green

On Friday 25 May, Asia’s premier destination resort Laguna Phuket marked 12th year of its Greening Community initiative by planting 3,000 mangrove saplings at Baan Thasak Village in Paklog, a sub-district in Thalang area of Phuket. Led by Laguna Phuket’s senior assistant vice president – service Mr. Anthony Loh, more than 150 volunteers, a combination of the resort’s associates, schoolchildren, community members and government officials, also released 250 live mud crabs and blue crabs to conserve the village’s mangrove ecosystem.

Supported by the initiative’s strategic partners such as Marine and Coastal Preserving Group (Paklog), Mangrove Station 23 (Phuket) and Station 21 (Phang-Nga), this 12th edition of Laguna Phuket’s annual tree planting event is a part of its initiative that aims to raise awareness of global warming, help build greener communities and inspire the next generation of environmentalists.


To date, Laguna Phuket has planted nearly 30,000 trees in Phuket and neighboring provinces, with more than 1,300 associates and 700 community members participated since 2007.

Strategically aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in climate action, life below water and life on land, “Greening Community” activity is one of many initiatives set up by Laguna Phuket to support its wider goal in environment preservation according to Banyan Tree Global Foundation (BTGF)’s worldwide guideline for each property within the group to plant at least 2,000 trees in respective community each year.
