Staff education at Tongsai Bay

The Tongsai Bay invited all staff members in 2012 from each department to educate them on energy consumption and environmental awareness


Tongsai Bay's mandate is mainly in educating the staff about the environment and increasing awareness and respect for nature and environment.The staff should realise the significance of nature and endeavour to conserve it for later generations. Even if they are only a small part of the whole society and Samui community, the hope is that Tongsai’s staff would apply Green Project’s practices and guidelines to their own households and disseminate them for wider usage. So they could be regarded as good examples for Koh Samui.

In May 2014, the Bai Mai Group visited the resort to help raise staff awareness of environmental protection. The Bai Mai group has members of all ages who gather together to perform environmental conservation activities.

While at Tongsai Bay the Bai Mai Group had the opportunity to meet with staff members to discuss environmental conservation. During the discussion Bai Mai members shared their experiences doing conservation work.

“We have stayed in many hotels but Tongsai Bay was the 1st place we repeated. It has become a place to sooth ourselves.”
