The Pavilions ANANA Krabi
Wolfgang Grimm is a third-generation son of a German hotelier family and has been in the hospitality business for 50 years, 25 of them in senior management at InterContinental Hotels in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Over the last four years, Wolfgang Grimm has grown the family of Anana’s ecological ventures into a complete offering of holiday services.
It is Wolfgang’s vision to grow the ecological alternatives into a fully regenerative offering continually. Wolfgang and his team are, therefore, constantly developing new ecological ventures. The focus on regenerative tourism goes further than simply being aware of the traces we leave on our vacation and minimizing the impact we have. Regenerative tourism at The Pavilions Anana Krabi means to increase the positive impact the business and all its participants have on the communities and our local environment.
The following goals are to increase the positive impact: A Coral restoration project off Ao Nang’s Islands is already well underway, and future guests will be able to contribute to coral planting while on a waste-free snorkelling excursion. In collaboration with Marine biologists from Trang and Bangkok and the local National Park rangers, this project has the potential to impact locals and tourists alike.
A little closer to the shores of Ao Nang are the seagrass meadows. An often overlooked ecosystem that offers grazing grounds for the rare dugongs of the Andaman sea fulfils essential functions in the marine ecosystem protecting coral reefs from runoff silt from rivers as well as providing nutrition for fauna close to shore. These seagrass areas are also very important for CO2 sequestration as they regenerate very quickly and build out deep roots. These roots in turn, solidify the sea-ground.
Part of our profits from Aqua Beach club will go into the replanting of the seagrass close to the beach club, so guests of Aqua Beach club will contribute automatically to the restoration of the meadows.
The bridge between ocean and land and arguably one of the world’s most powerful ecosystems are the mangrove forests. For us, they provide the stage for our eco-tourism with their plethora of rare animal species. For the locals, they offer food and shelter. For the local animals, they are hideout, breeding ground, hunting grounds, home. For the sea, the mangroves offer protection from debris that is being washed out from the rivers. For the shoreline, mangroves provide protection against tides, storms and rising sea levels. For the planet’s climate, the mangroves sequester 5 times more carbon dioxide than tropical rainforests. We are extremely lucky to be living at the outskirts of one of the last big, healthy mangrove jungles of South East Asia. It is our duty to protect and restore this ecosystem with everything that we do.
For this task, the protection and restoration of our mangrove jungles, seagrass meadows and coral reefs, we envision a future, where the tourists will return in a post-pandemic world of regenerative tourism actively contribute to it with their choices as well as their spending. We envision a future where tourism providers like our partners and us provide opportunities for the local communities to successfully partake in this new face of tourism, where less is more, where quality once more becomes more important than quantity.
