Outrigger Khao Lak in Thailand Illuminates the Season
Embracing the true spirit of Christmas and environmental responsibility, OUTRIGGER Khao Lak Beach Resort is proudly presenting an elegant and sustainable Christmas tree in its lobby. Designed by the resort’s dedicated hosts, this innovative Christmas tree is crafted entirely from recycled plastic bottles, adorned with twinkling lights and embellished with recycled ornaments, creating a striking symbol of sustainability and holiday cheer.
“The tree symbolises our unwavering commitment to sustainability and is inspired by OUTRIGGER Zone, our global conservation initiative. It serves as a powerful reminder of the positive impact we can make by embracing eco-friendly practices in the travel and hospitality industry,” said Resort Manager, Sujittra Rongmuang.
This recycled Christmas tree has become a captivating focal point, sparking meaningful conversations among guests about the urgency of reducing waste and the significance of adopting sustainable habits in daily life.
“Our Christmas tree is a testament to the power of creativity, community, the true spirit of Christmas and, most importantly, our collective responsibility to care for the environment,” said Ms Rongmuang.
Located on the serene Bang Sak beach, OUTRIGGER Khao Lak Beach Resort, a 158-key garden resort, offers a delightful beachfront setting just a 90-minute drive north of Phuket International Airport.
The resort’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond the festive season, with various eco-friendly initiatives in place to minimise its environmental footprint.
For example, the resort’s hosts clean the beach in front of the property; no plastic straws are used in the hotel; the kitchen reuses waste food for organic compost on its own herb garden; and there is automatic electricity cut out when guests leave their room.
This sustainable Christmas tree initiative showcases OUTRIGGER Khao Lak’s dedication to promoting eco-tourism and sustainable practices, providing guests with a meaningful and environmentally conscious holiday experience.
