Banyan Tree Celebrates Earth Hour
On 24 March, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts came together in a worldwide effort to celebrate Earth Hour 2018. The international campaign saw the participation of 35 out of 40 properties; even including our senior management who were at Banyan Tree Bangkok for the annual Group Management Operations Review. They partook in the switching off of lights for 60 minutes, along with a candle-lighting ceremony.
Many hotels expanded on the idea of environmental awareness and energy efficiency by creating interesting events for the guests. Banyan Tree Phuket, for example, organised a Dine In The Dark dinner where a three-course Wellness Menu was presented. At Banyan Tree Mayakoba, a full-day Earth Hour itinerary was created, starting with a meditation session for the planet at 8am and ending with a sunset ceremony guided by Mayan priest Don Crescencio. Congratulations on all the effort!
