connect with community

February 26th, 2009

Guests of the newly opened Anantara Phuket Resort & Spa can participate in a ”community day” excursion tothe coastal village of Baan Talay Nok in the Ranong province north of Phuket, one of the most devastated during the 2004 Tsunami. 

Working side-by-side with tsunami survivors in a handicraft cooperative, Anantara Phuket guests can help villagers with soap making, batik painting, and palm weaving, and proceeds from the sale of these items serve as supplemental income for the cooperative members.

In addition to volunteering, guests can also join in a soccer match with the children, go for a jungle hike, or practice speaking Thai with the elders. Anantara Phuket‘s community day is more than a day of volunteerism; it’s an opportunity for guests to take away with them experiences greater than those that money can buy.
