Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya has integrated green initiatives into every aspect of the hotel operations, from overall energy and water saving, utilisation of renewable energy to social initiatives that promote recycling of material waste from the hotel.
Centara Hotels & Resorts announced its latest accolades following the country’s most prestigious environmental awards ceremony for tourism industry operators. At the Thai Environment Day Event, held recently at IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Centre in Nonthaburi, Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya received its first “Green Hotel Gold Award 2016” from Thailand’s Ministry of Natural Resource and Environment.
Winning this prestigious national award is a testament to the hotel’s persistence and dedication to promote several of its green initiatives, as well as to the tireless work of all employees and involved industry partners. Throughout the year, Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya has integrated green initiatives into every aspect of the hotel operations, from overall energy and water saving, utilisation of renewable energy – namely turning sunlight into electricity by solar cells, to social initiatives that promote recycling of material waste from the hotel, expanding green areas for the community and campaigning for hotel guests to participate in several environmental programmes.
Mr. Jonas Sjφstedt, General Manager of Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya received the hotel’s first Green Hotel Gold Award 2016 from Natural Resource and Environment Minister General Surasak Kanjanarat at the ceremony held at Impact Muangthong Thani, Nonthaburi
Its sister hotel – Centara Pattaya Hotel, located on the same road as Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya secured the “Green Hotel Silver Award” this year, a result of knowledge transfer and hands-on implementation from one hotel managed by the same General Manager and team of operations staff to the other.
“The awards were the results of every little thing we do,” said Mr. Jonas Sjφstedt, General Manager of Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya and Centara Pattaya Hotel. “To reinforce cost-saving with many of our green initiatives while making both hotels live up to visitors’ expectations has meant a lot of planning, implementing, evaluating and improving. I am particularly pleased that both hotels have been recognised by the Ministry of Natural Resource and Environment with their first environmental awards, especially the Gold Award for Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya for the first time.”
