5 Green Hotels in and near Phuket

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Tourism in Phuket

Green, sustainable, or eco-friendly hotels are in more and more demand in Phuket after years of uncontrolled and irresponsible development which could lead this beautiful, once unspoiled tropical destination to become another huge block of cement without any consideration for its environment. The authorities are starting to respond to a greater demand for eco-tourism options and are realising that there is a lot to be done to keep Phuket and its neighbouring inhabited islands respectful to nature in a way which ensures a long-term commercial viability.

As is often the case, it is hotels and resort managers and owners who were the first started to realise that, due to the ever-growing number of visitors in Phuket, it was not possible to carry on running world-class hospitality residences in a polluted environment. Here are five properties which do the most to exist in harmony with their natural surroundings, giving guests the comfort of knowing that they are having a minimal impact on the environment; they are the five best green hotels in and near Phuket.
