Agoda's Top Eco-Friendly Asian Resort: The Tongsai Bay
Agoda, online hotel reservations site and part of Priceline, has recently published their top ten picks in eco-friendly Asian resorts. On the very top of that list was the beautiful Tongsai Bay Resort, located on the island of Ko Samui, Thailand. Tongsai Bay's Beginning Tongsai Bay was designed in 1985 by Akorn Hoontrakul, and was created without builders having to cut a single tree down. The plan, even then, was to leave as much of the natural beauty of the island at peace. With beachfront suites, special villa suites and cottage suites, guests can choose where they'd like to be placed and what special features they'd like to experience at the hotel. Eco-Friendly Aspect The Tongsai Bay hotel strives to be eco-friendly on several levels, including:
- Through smart waste management practices and recycling.
- Working to conserve energy as much as possible.
- Working to create eco-awareness in the surrounding community, where Tonsai Bay Hotel has built a low carbon school.
- Working with other hotels on the island to try and maintain the natural beauty and resources of Tonsai Bay.
