Bangkok, Thailand – July 9, 2015 – For the past five years, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi has been working with EarthCheck to improve their sustainability efforts. After creating and implementing a large-scale environmental and social management system, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi has now achieved the status of “EarthCheck Gold”, recognizing the resort’s successful five-year-long commitment to sustainable tourism. As the first property in Thailand to receive the Gold certification, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi is proud of their team that continues to uphold the Centara values for sustainability and innovation. Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi, in partnership with EarthCheck, created distinct policies and procedures such as risk assessments, waste management plans and internal audits in order to achieve greater sustainability and the tools by which to measure progress. In doing so, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi has improved its regulatory compliance in areas such as greenhouse gas emissions, fresh water conservation, energy efficiency, and waste management.Last Modified Date: 2015.07.22
Further to being awarded EarthCheck Silver Certification for its ongoing commitment towards environmental responsibilities and sustainable programmes, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi has launched its own water bottling plant using a reverse osmosis system, also known as hyper filtration. This process allows removing particles as small as ions from a solution and consequently purifies water, removes salts and impurities, and improves the water’s colours, taste and properties. The resort commenced distribution in September this year, with an extremely positive reaction from our guests.
“We have been working on this concept for some time now, and have followed the pattern that we have at our Centara Grand Island Resort in the Maldives,” says David Good, vice president for operations at Centara Hotels & Resorts.
“Our bottling plant filters the water, which comes from underground wells, and uses renewable glass bottles rather than plastic bottles. We save on unnecessary use of fuel in transporting bottled water by boat, and we do not have the environmental problem of disposing of plastic bottles.Last Modified Date: 2015.04.07

LHR weight loss retreats are based on more than 20 years of experience in the fitness and weight loss industry. Our team of professionals include world class fitness coaches, and nutrition specialists.
We understand that losing weight and keeping it off can be a daunting challenge, perhaps one that our guests have attempted many times before. At LHR, our programs are not just about learning how to eat, or getting more active, but go much deeper.Last Modified Date: 2013.05.09
