Developing Sustainable Communities
Laguna Phuket is a community nestled within a community — a network of hotels, properties, restaurants, services and leisure facilities – providing a wealth of jobs and a complete lifestyle for local, regional and international guests. In delivering its services, Laguna turns back profits into a strong ethically motivated focus on socially responsible business that touches all stakeholders in our quest to deliver environmental and social benefits alongside increasing economic performance.
Since its establishment in 1984, which began with the rehabilitation of Bangtao Bay — once a tin mine and declared by United Nations Development Program as: “too environmentally damaged to have any development potential,” — Laguna Phuket has continued to safeguard its natural environment, cultural heritage, and promote a shared prosperity. While Laguna Phuket has continuously supported associates with fair employment and well-rounded benefits, it has also maintained a commitment to communities through community relations and CSR efforts. With a dedicated Community Relations and Corporate Social Responsibility team, Laguna Phuket community relations and CSR programmes are categorised under the following focus areas:-
Our Cultural Diversity initiatives help to promote and preserve ancient traditions of various origins in local communities. In doing so, Laguna Phuket contributes to uplifting the spiritual well-being of associates, their families, and local community members, to ensure a balance between the influx of western influences brought by tourism and preservation of the local way of life.
Social equity initiatives aim to build the capacities of local communities and associates through socially beneficial projects whereby community members and associates can benefit from our support for their personal betterment as well as professional advancement.
Educational empowerment initiatives aim to build the capacities of local communities and associates through our programs that empower people of all ages. To help people pursue a life-long learning journey, and realize their potential. At Laguna Phuket, we seek to fulfill our stakeholders’ needs in order to match guidance and knowledge to their own interests and sources of inspiration.
Health & Sports Promotion
Laguna Phuket is dedicated to helping people achieve a sensible work-life balance. We encourage people to work hard, and we promote play and leisure. We believe that leisure is the most fun when it exercises the mind and body, so our health and sports promotion events focus on meaningful sporting activities, such as Survival Swim, Bangtao Night Fishing Game and Red Cross Blood Donation
Our Environmental Conservation initiatives emphasize raising awareness of climate change and human impact on local natural resources. In partnering with local conservation efforts, Laguna Phuket supports various initiatives that ensure sustainable rehabilitation of marine and shoreline resources around Phuket Island and nearby provinces.
