Eco-Friendly Hotels in Thailand: Save Sea Turtles with the Aleenta Resort, Phuket
February 5, 2010By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Aleenta Resort and SpaTalk about guilt-free luxury. The Phuket resort prized for its chic, beachfront rooms and rejuvenating spa is environmentally-friendly, too. The Aleenta Resort and Spa Phuket – Phangnga has created a Marine Turtle Foundation to support the repopulation and rehabilitation of the local turtles that are threatened by over-development and over-fishing. Thailand's four species of marine turtles include the Leatherback, the world's largest living reptile, which has been listed as globally endangered since 1970. Aleenta is located just 20 minutes south from gorgeous Khao Lumpee- Haad Thaymuang National Park, where the Turtle Sanctuary is located. Here guests can learn about conservation with staff, including an Aleenta representative, who tend to over 200 turtle hatchlings. Aleenta offers day-trips to the park so that guests can learn about the turtles. The resort also matches donations of THB40/per night which are made to the Sanctuary.
