A talented hospitality professional with two decades of diverse experience in sales and marketing and a passion for building strong business relationships has been named five-star Meliá Koh Samui's director of sales and marketing.

Thai national Phatsalawadee Pimpila's appointment to the new 159-room and 41-suite luxury resort on Koh Samui's north-eastern coastline in the Gulf of Thailand, comes after she previously worked as director of sales for Kanda Residences, another five-star hotel situated on Koh Samui island.

Ms Pimpila has also worked as the managing and sales director for O-Pa Television, that she co-founded, focused on travel and leisure television production. She also presented in front of the camera for a weekly show the company produced for Thai digital television.

She was a senior sales and event manager for media company Travel Daily Asia for six and a half years, and also undertook senior sales management roles for hotel Unico Sandara Cha-Am in Hua Hin, production company Capital TV and developer Celadon Land Asia Pacific.

Situated on the edge of Choeng Mon Beach, Meliá Koh Samui celebrated its grand opening on January 10, unveiling a host of world-class facilities including two restaurants, a swim-up bar, a lagoon pool that "loops" through its grounds like a river, a two-level infinity pool, an executive lounge, spa, fitness centre, ballroom and conference facilities and, for families, a kid's club, outdoor playground and mini water park.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
