CLEAN UP PHU QUOC INITIATIVE
In collaboration with our local government and other members of the service industry, we participate in Clean Up Project of our beautiful Phu Quoc Island on monthly basis. By the end of each month, we have around 50 volunteers from our company who walks along the streets of Duong Dong Town and Airport cleaning all the garbage and waste. The goal is not only to preserve the environment and ecology of our beloved island, but also to educate both locals and tourists about the impact of negligence for the eco-system and the importance of conservation of Phu Quoc Island for its future sustainability. We will always lend a hand in protecting the places we love.

All the paintings exhibited within the hotel is created by local artists throughout Vietnam and supported by Vietnam Fine Arts Association. Salinda Resort hosts the art gallery at the Mango Garden throughout January 2016, demonstrating the talents of local artists through their paintings depicting life, traditions, and sceneries of Vietnam. We work in partnership with local community by offering local performers and dancers a chance to perform during our special events. For example, during Tet Holiday Season, we invited children from local schools under coaching of a professional instructor to perform a famous traditional Lion Dance.
LOCAL FOOD PRODUCES
We purchase organic, locally grown food from eco-farms, and the imported products comprises of only 1% of our total food purchases. Not only it is beneficial to soil, water and local habitat, and is safer for the people who harvest and consume this food, but also allows to celebrate the culture of new agriculture in Vietnam.
