Phuket, Thailand, 25 September 2011 – Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket recently won a Smoke-Free and Health Promotions Hotel, Golden Star Award 2011–2013, initiated by the Green Leaf Foundation in cooperation with the Thai Health Promotion Foundation.
The Green Leaf Foundation’s Health Promotion Hotel programme, the Smoke-Free Hotel Award, is given to hotels that demonstrate a strong commitment towards environmental awareness and health promotion. Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket has followed smoke-free regulations by providing designated smoking areas and offering non-smoking guest rooms only.
The hotel has applied eco-friendly principles to all facilities; restaurants, meetings, functions, and events are also designed to be climate-friendly, as are all the internal engineering and maintenance operations. Transportation systems used by the hotels in the Laguna complex area also follow the same principles, including the use of shuttle bus and boat pooling for both hotel guests and employees.
The Green Leaf Foundation is a joint initiative of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Thai Hotels Association, United Nation Environmental Programme (UNEP), Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), Metropolitan Waterworks Authority, and Association for the Development of Environmental Quality.
