Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach Gives Back to the Community

The tagline ‘People Planet Phuket’ is synonymous with the community-driven initiatives that Phuket Hotels Association endeavors to put back into our island home. Collectively, the Association focuses on educational and environmental issues and challenges, while individually, each member hotel focuses on independent CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiatives. 

Recently, Phuket Hotels Association member hotel, Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach, took part in some activities aimed at benefitting the local community as well as the hotel guests. These activities are good news well worth sharing.

Partnership with Soi Dog Foundation

In late 2018, Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach partnered with Phuket’s famed Soi Dog Foundation to vaccinate the friendly stray dogs that have made Naithon Beach their home. The campaign pushed forward under the title ‘PULL … MANS Best Friend,’ and the partnership was put in place ‘fur the peace of mind of Pullman’s guests and the happiness of the local community’s furry friends.’

The sole purpose of the partnership between Pullman and the Soi Dog Foundation was to vaccinate all of the local Naithon Beach dogs before the upcoming high season, as a way to not only ease the mind of the hotel’s guests, but visitors to Naithon Beach as well. Additionally, keeping the local stray dog population vaccinated ensures that our furry friends are protected from harmful diseases. 

Phuket’s Soi Dog Foundation was established in 2003 to help street dogs and cats who had no-one else to care for them. Since its inception, the Foundation has been dedicated to rescuing animals from abuse, abandonment, sickness and injury. In addition to rescue efforts, the foundation also sterilizes and provides medical treatments to a large number of street animals all over Phuket, and with the help of likeminded foundations and establishments, the Soi Dog Foundation reaches further throughout Thailand.

Bike Donation to Baan Saku School 

During a group conference in late 2018, the attendees questioned the staff of Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach how they might be able to help or give back to the community. The conference participants were looking for a beneficial way to pay it forward, and decided to donate shiny new bikes to the lovely children from the Baan Saku School. 

As one can imagine, the children were absolutely besides themselves and grateful for the new bikes! It was a real joy for the guests and staff of Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach to give back to the local community. After all, there is nothing better than making someone else smile!

All of us at Phuket Hotels Association commend the efforts of Pullman Phuket Arcadia Naithon Beach. Giving back to the community is so important, and together, we can make a difference. #PeoplePlanetPhuket
