To celebrate the auspicious occasion of the 85th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit on 12 August 2017, which is also the national Mother’s Day in Thailand JW Marriot Phuket Resort and Spa collaborated with Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation to stage a beach cabbage planting event.
Beach cabbage can help protect against beach and sand erosion and during the “Beach Cabbage Planting” which took place from 8 to 11 August, over 1,700 seedlings were planted on Mai Khao Beach in front of the hotel. The event was also a way of celebrating Thailand’s Mother’s Day and to give Mother Nature a boost.
Mr. Oriol Montal, JW Marriot Phuket Resort and Spa’s GM presided over the opening of the event which was joined by hotel guests and Sirinat National Park officers.
The beaches around JW Marriot Phuket Resort and Spa are important sea turtle nesting sites so the hotel makes sure that beaches are clean and kept in a pristine state so that turtles in Phuket continue to thrive.
