The award recognises Laguna Phuket’s support in hosting a variety traditional events for the local community, such as Loy Krathong Festival, Phuket Vegetarian Festival as well as outreach activities such as parades and merit makings at the temples on Buddhist Lent Day and Thai Sart Day, food and necessities donations to mosques during ramadan and to Chinese shrines during Phuket Vegetarian Festival.

For receiving the award for five consecutive years, Laguna Phuket was also bestowed Amcham’s Gold Level status in appreciation of the resort’s long-term contribution in CSR and community development.

The award was presented by the US Chargé d’ Affaires to Thailand, Michael Heath, in Bangkok late last month.

“Laguna Phuket is part of Cherng Talay community in which there are five Buddhist temples, three Chinese shrines and seven mosques. Our associates are from diverse beliefs and cultural backgrounds. We are proud that Laguna Phuket has been supporting and conserving this diversity, providing opportunities and platforms for all to participate and collaborate, for more than 30 years since our establishment,” said Peera Pomsook, Laguna Phuket’s Assistant CSR & Community Relations Director.

Amcham’s ACE Recognition honours member organisations that create long-term economic and social benefits in their communities.
