Coral Reef Conservation

Overdevelopment and anchoring have damaged many of Phuket's near shore reefs, yet the resort's House Reef remains in healthy condition due to limited access and conservation efforts.


In collaboration with IUCN and Sea Bees Diving, the resort is working to conserve and restore the reef's ecosystem. Discarded fishing gear, especially nets, and boat anchors are among the main threats to coral and marine life.

The conservation team conducts weekly reef surveys and removes fishing gear from the reef to raise awareness among fishermen and visitors. Conservation divers also look for broken coral fragments, which can reattach and grow over time, increasing coral cover on the reef. Without this collection, the broken fragments will quickly die.
