Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort Invites Eco-Conscious Couples To Adopt A Clownfish For Valentine’s Day

Pioneering hospitality company, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort, is inviting eco-conscious guests to immerse themselves in nature and romance this Valentine’s Day, with a one-of-a-kind adventure that includes the opportunity to adopt and release their very own clownfish.

In keeping with its deeply held sustainable beliefs, the resort is focusing on meaningful gestures that proactively contribute to the marine environment, rather than traditional flowers and chocolates.

From February, sweethearts are invited to visit the resort’s Marine Discovery Centre, a unique environmental facility that is dedicated to the conservation of Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi National Park, the vast tropical reserve that surrounds the Phi Phi Islands. Led by the resort’s resident marine biologist, Kasama “Bom” Nualsri, this eco hub operates many important projects, including coral preservation, breeding and release programmes.

For the first time, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is allowing couples to adopt their own “Nemo” as a symbol of their everlasting love. For THB 18,000 net per couple, guests will be able to choose and name their clownfish, and when the fish is strong enough, travel out by long-tail boat to release it on the anemone coral reef. Each couple will also receive a certificate of appreciation and will be named on the donor recognition wall in the Marine Discovery Centre.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort currently breeds around ten clownfish babies per month, but the team is aiming to increase this number in 2020 to contribute to a healthier and more vibrant marine ecosystem. The proceeds from this adoption initiative will enable Khun Bom and his assistants to ramp up their vital work.

“With 70 acres of lush landscaped gardens and an 800-metre-long stretch of powder-soft sand, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is the ultimate romantic retreat. But our green-hearted guests are no longer content with traditional tourist experiences – they want to have a positive impact on their destination,” said Chao Treenawong, General Manager of Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort.

“Through our Marine Discovery Centre, we allow travellers to learn about our pristine ecosystem and help it thrive through various projects. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we are thrilled to offer them the unique opportunity to adopt a clownfish, providing a distinctive and long-lasting symbol of their love for each other, and for Planet Earth.”

Couples will also be able to delve deeper into Phi Phi’s mesmerising marine world with a special Valentine’s excursion to discover the Andaman archipelago’s better-kept secrets. The package to Loh La Na Bay or Bamboo Island (THB 4,000 net per couple) includes snorkelling equipment, fruit, soft drinks and a lunch box for two people. Then after a day of exploration, sweethearts can return to dry land and savour a private dinner on the beach (THB 1,754 net per person).

For a truly amorous vacation, lovers can indulge in a two-night “Phi Phi Romance Package”, which also includes a 60-minute Thai massage and a candlelit dinner with a bottle of house wine, plus land and sea transfers, welcome drinks and a fruit basket upon arrival. Rates start at THB 24,500 net for two people.

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has been recognised for its deep commitment to sustainability; it recently became the first property in southern Thailand’s Krabi province to receive a Gold Level Green Hotel Award, certified by the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion (DEQP), under the Thai Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment. It has also been named as a “Plastic Free Resort” by the Thai Hotels Association.
