Dusit Thani Pattaya
World Health Organization honours Dusit Thani Pattaya during World No-Tobacco Day 2011 celebration
Dusit Thani Pattaya has added another achievement to its long list of laurels when the five-star resort’s General Manager, Mr Chatchawal Supachayanont accepted an award from the World Health Organization (WHO) during a ceremony marking World No-Tobacco Day 2011. The event was presided over by HRH Princess Soamsawali at the Lifestyle Hall of Siam Paragon in Bangkok. This year’s theme was “The WHO Framework Convention of Tobacco Control”.
Dusit Thani Pattaya was among the more than 30 awardees from across Thailand whose efforts of continuously giving their staunch support towards policies aimed at reducing tobacco consumption were recognized by the WHO. Recipients came from different industries and agencies with the Ministry of Public Health accepting the World No- Tobacco Day 2011 award.
In his comments, Mr Supachayanont stressed the importance of recognising the health risks associated with tobacco use thereby promoting better health to its hotel guests. He emphasized that the resort would continue its strict policy of allocating more than 75% of its total room inventory as smoke-free accommodation in accordance with its commitment to the Green Leaf Foundation of Thailand to support control on tobacco consumption. Global figures indicate that tobacco use is the second cause of death (after hypertension) and is currently responsible for killing one in 10 adults worldwide.Last year, the Green Leaf Foundation presented the resort the Health Promotion Smoke-Free Hotel plaque for its anti-smoking initiatives aimed at protecting public health. The five-star resort management considers their most recent internationally-acclaimed award as truly an honor since Dusit Thani Pattaya was the only hotel in the entire Kingdom to have been bestowed the recognition.
