The Athitan recently won a Smoke-Free and Health Promotions Hotel, Golden Star Award 2011–2013, initiated by the Green Leaf Foundation in cooperation with the Thai Health Promotion Foundation.
The Green Leaf Foundation’s Health Promotion Hotel programme, the Smoke-Free Hotel Award, is given to hotels that demonstrate a strong commitment towards environmental awareness and health promotion. The Athitan has followed smoke-free regulations by providing designated smoking areas and offering non-smoking guest rooms only.
Health Promotion Hotel Program uses a practical approach providing operational directions that respond to health promotion in tourism. The Program consists of activities which promote health and conserve environment.
The program is organized to reduce smoking in hotels and to promote health of their guests, suppliers, and including their employees. The activities will aim to smoke free and to have those smokers be more responsible for their society and the non smokers will no longer tolerate with the second hand smoke.
