Amari Boulevard Bangkok, Amari Phuket and OZO Chaweng Samui recognised for their commitment towards sustainable water management

Leading international hospitality provider ONYX Hospitality Group is proud to announce that three of its hotels in Thailand are amongst only 11 nationwide to be honoured with the prestigious Kuoni Water Champion Award. ONYX is also the only group to have hotels in three different destinations receiving this recognition, which validates each property's commitment towards tracking water usage, managing water supplies efficiently and raising guest awareness on sustainability.

Amari Boulevard Bangkok, Amari Phuket and OZO Chaweng Samui entered a long-term engagement on sustainable water management with Kuoni, one of the world's largest travel industry service providers. All three properties excelled in a range of sustainable activities recommended by Kuoni, including the installation of water meters, calculation of consumption data and implementation of water-saving practices.

According to data collected by Kuoni, all three hotels collectively saved almost 2,500 cubic metres of water within a two-month period, the equivalent of a full Olympic-sized swimming pool, as a result of these water management initiatives.

Peter Henley, President and CEO, ONYX Hospitality Group, said,

"With demand for sustainable travel options on the rise and travellers increasingly looking for hotels that are committed to being environment-friendly, we are delighted with our sustainable achievements and the recognition by one of the world's leading travel companies. As a socially responsible company, we aim to protect natural resources and biodiversity, and ensure that all potential impact of our operations on the environment are identified and managed."

The Kuoni Water Champion Award is an integral component of the company's water champion programme. To support the hotels during the implementation phase in Thailand, Kuoni, in collaboration with local consultant Nicolas Dubrocard, developed and published a sustainable water management manual in English and Thai. The aim of the manual is for the end-user to have the tools necessary to implement step-by-step a sustainable water management in their own operations, including an accompanying set of Excel worksheets to calculate water consumption and cost-benefit analyses of the improvement mechanisms.
