Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi launches Water bottling plant

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.
