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.

Angsana Laguna Phuket brings Wallet-free Travel ‘Alipay’ for resort’s Chinese Travelers

Phuket, Thailand, May 2018 — Angsana Laguna Phuket presents a new service for Chinese hotel guests by accepting payment via the Chinese platforms Alipay and WeChat Pay – mobile wallet systems. Alipay is a world-leading third party digital payment and lifestyle platform operated by Ant Financial Services Group. Wechat Pay is an offshoot of the biggest Chinese social network, Wechat. It has over 450 million active users in China and beyond and a pioneer in the now-ubiquitous mobile payments market.

With Alipay we offer Chinese travellers the payment service that they are used to.

Alipay is China’s leading online payment provider and the primary means of online and mobile payments for Chinese consumers allowing its users to pay for products and services by scanning QR codes on their smartphones or tablets. Its presence is ubiquitous in Chinese cities, where mobile payments are a way of life.

“Angsana Laguna Phuket is delighted to bring this service of convenience to our guests as well as provide Chinese-speaking associates to ensure a memorable stay experience.

Michal Zitek, Area General Manager of Angsana Laguna Phuket, commented on the TMVS certification, “This award represents a great deal of effort at all levels of our organisation, and another big step forward for Thai hospitality on the world stage,” he said. “It signals to the business world that Thailand is capable of hosting events at an international standard.”

The TMVS accreditations follow a detailed submission and official on-site inspections. They reflect the resort’s commitment to providing world-class MICE services, as overseen by Director of MICE & Events Watcharapong Saikaew. “To have five meeting rooms certified by the official government body is a terrific achievement for the resort, and for myself as director. Apart from having certified meeting venues, we are investing in having event management team certified by internationally renowned MICE organizations. With expectation by end of 2018, Angsana will have the team that holding 3 major certifications which are CMP (Certified Meeting Professional), CIS (Certified Incentive Specialist) and CEM (Certified Exhibition Management). This will make Angsana Laguna Phuket the first and only venue in Thailand that has acquired all three major certifications on MICE” he said.
