Colleagues in Tainan and Muscat Help Beautify Beaches

Many Shangri-La hotels and resorts around the world are located on or near beautiful beaches, whose ecosystems are threatened by many factors, including human interaction and littering. Check out how our colleagues in Tainan and Muscat made positive impacts on their beachfront environments.

On August 7, Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Tainan organized a beach cleanup at Beimen Wetland in partnership with the Society of Wilderness. Forty-eight hotel volunteers led clients and children from the Tiawan Fund Children and Family Association (TFCF) on a tour of the Beiman Wetlands followed by a beach cleanup.

“The project shows the core values of Shangri-La’s culture, and our willingness to protect our environment,” said Doris Pu, communications manager at the hotel. “We are committed to beautifying our environment and engaging our community to make the greatest positive impact."

On August 8, colleagues from Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Muscat participated in a beach cleanup on Al Waha and Al Bandar beaches. Over 60 colleagues helped beautify the beach, followed by a delicious breakfast prepared by the food and beverage team.

“More than just a pretty environment, the resort’s beaches are important for turtles that lay their nests in them every year,” said Caitriona Gaffney, director of communications for the resort. “Our goal is to create a beautiful and positive environment for not only our guests and colleagues, but also the marine life that inhabit it.”

Thank you to our colleagues in Tainan and Muscat for helping preserve and beautify our beaches.
