Angsana Laguna Phuket, offering vibrant rooms and villas on Bangtao beach, Phuket, first joined EarthCheck in 2012 through the initiative of the Banyan Tree Group to maintain its commitment to sustainable operations to the highest level – building a better society for all while integrating green practices into the operations.

Building on existing sustainability campaigns Angsana Laguna Phuket has put in place a number of initiatives to engage guests, associates and the local community, such as guest room and office energy conservation, recycling of materials, maintenance of an organic farm, supporting local orphanages and elderly homes and regular tree planting with minimum of 2,000 trees per resort per year and beach cleaning activities.

“Receiving the EarthCheck Silver Certification for the 3rd year running is proof that Angsana Laguna Phuket has taken a prominent role in energy conservation. It is a great example of an organization that is committed to environmental sustainability. The team and I are keen and motivated to consistently maintain this performance in order to achieve the Gold Certification, not only to continue promoting environmentally friendly practices; but also to remind us that it is the core responsibility of each business unit to protect the environment we operate in” said Ms Figen Bulut, Hotel Manager of Angsana Laguna Phuket.

Angsana Laguna Phuket announces appointment of Executive Chef Jens Heier

Phuket, Thailand, July 2017 — Angsana Laguna Phuket is delighted to announce the arrival of Executive Chef Jens Heier to the beachfront resort. With over 30 years experience in the hospitality and dining industry, Chef Jens brings his global knowledge and culinary expertise to all four restaurants in Angsana Laguna Phuket.

Chef Jens was born in 1969 Heidelberg, Germany. Inspired by his mother, his passion for cooking and curiosity to see the world motivated him to start his career when he was only 13 years old becoming the youngest chef with a diploma at 20 after his graduation in 1989. During his career, he has received many honors including cooking for Queen Silvia of Sweden, Thai royalty as well as Hollywood celebrities such as Jamiroqua, Lionel Ritchie, Madonna, Kate Moss and others.

Prior to his career at Angsana Laguna Phuket, Chef Jens had been working in luxury hotels in Samui and Pattaya in Thailand and has 15 years of experience working in Asia under the Onyx Hospitality Group as Culinary Director in charge of corporate operations for all Onyx Group properties in Asia. He had also been voted twice for chef of the year in 2 different continents, Berlin Germany and Seoul South Korea. He has also been a part of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Eastern Seaboard as a Conseiller Culinaire which offers profound insights on gastronomic dining.

Believing in fresh and honest cuisine, Chef Jens said simplicity in creating dishes is the ultimate challenge. “Listening to our guests is very important as they are good indicators. I always prefer to tailor make a menu in order to achieve the goal of ultimate satisfaction. Nowadays, we see less of the molecular cooking and find more focus on flavour, quality and honesty, therefore nothing beats a handcrafted dish. At Angsana I will contribute my local and oversea talents together with food and beverage team to create those new menus and experiences that deliver and exceed our guest needs and expectations” says Chef Jens.

With the arrival of Chef Jens, Angsana Laguna Phuket invites our guests to enjoy his culinary creations along with our signature hospitality and stunning location beside a tranquil lagoon and world-class golf course. Stay tuned for some exciting food and wine pairing events and themed buffets this year!
