SOS Children’s Village Phuket invited to ‘Be My Guest’




Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket organised a day filled with activities as part of an on-going partnership with SOS Children’s Village Phuket, an orphanage that was set up in the aftermath of the Indian Ocean tsunami and looks after local, unattended children.

On Saturday, June 16, 2018, 20 children from the SOS Children’s Village Phuket were invited to the resort to “be our guests” and spend a day on the resort’s ground to have fun and discover different jobs related to hospitality.

The children were picked up in the morning and were introduced to the concepts of eco-sustainability, a key foundation of the resort, by visiting the gardens and learning about the different species of flora that can be found on the property.

A series of mini-games followed, organised by the Recreation Team, that emphasised on the different departments’ roles and responsibilities, all in a fun and interactive way. The children were then treated to a delicious meal at OrientAsia, a pan-Asian restaurant located right on the pristine Karon Beach.

All young guests left with a little souvenir and wonderful memories from the moments they spent with the team throughout the day. Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket maintains a strong partnership with SOS Children’s Village Phuket and offers all the children who finish college an opportunity for an internship and a job within the company.

Organised twice a year by our resort, the “Be My Guest” activity is part of Shine, the global corporate social responsibility programme under the umbrella of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
