The Royal Cliff Hotels Group pioneered multiple CSR activities in Pattaya. The management team has been championing environmental conservation through various projects for the betterment of society since 1973.
The resort opened its own wastewater treatment plant during 1974, long before Pattaya had its own. The Royal Cliff Hotels Group is the first resort and convention centre in the world, to achieve the ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management System, the extension scope of ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management System and TIS 22300-2551 for MICE Security Management System. These collective achievements have made the Royal Cliff Hotels Group a distinct establishment recognized throughout the world for environmentally friendly hotel.
As an endorsement of the management team’s pioneering efforts towards environmental conservation, the resort has received several awards and recognition, including Asia Responsible Enterprise award 2020, EIA Monitoring Award (2000, 2002, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009), Kuoni Green Planet Award (2005-6 and 2007-8) and the Best Green Hotel recognition (2008). Another award we are proud of is from the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, which was presented to us in recognition of an excellent enterprise in the area of employment for persons with disabilities.
Giving back to society, especially less fortunate children, remains one of the resort’s top activities. We extend financial assistance to the needy, joining hands with volunteer organizers; the resort offers regular contributions in cash and kind, such as annual donations to the Pattaya Orphanage and school for blind children as well as providing scholarships to underprivileged children.
Each year the senior management team visits various schools and charity centers to learn how the resort can best help the children. On each visit our team brings food, clothes and books to the schools. In 2009 the resort hired renowned architects and engineers to renovate the main lobby for the Pattaya School for the Blind. Moreover, the board of directors provided the majority of funding to build Pattaya Hospital and homes for HIV patients in Rayong.
Finally we partner with organizations, associations and clubs to support various communities, charities and foundations
