A Second Life


Ghost nets, or abandoned fishing nets, can be a deadly threat to marine life when they get trapped in the web of nets. Angsana Ihuru has found an innovative way to repurpose these nets by weaving intricate bracelets for guests. The programme, first started in June, has received resounding feedback from guests for its creative way of educating about marine life conservation.

Farm to Table


Guests at Laguna Lang Co experienced the joys of harvesting their own food from an organic farm and learnt about sustainable farming. The trip to the organic farm also had other hands-on activities such as cooking classes and animal feeding – an insightful trip for children and those young at heart.

Drink Your Way For Good


Cassia Bintan steps up efforts to reduce plastic waste with the roll out of bamboo straws available for sale at the resort. Made out of locally grown bamboo plants on Bintan Island and crafted with the help of local communities, these straws are a natural alternative to plastic straws. All profits go towards supporting local artisan and cleaning efforts of the island.

Turtle Identification Project


Turtle sightings are a daily affair at the house reefs of Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru and Angsana Ihuru. To gain a better understanding of the turtles’ migratory patterns and behavior, we have recently embarked on a project to identify the turtles that visit the vibrant house reef. To date, the team has identified 21 turtles. A familiar ‘face’ is Jasper – a hawksbill turtle that has been sighted six times in the past months.
