We are a Dutch couple (both 38 years old) and we started our small resort in May 2012. We live on the property together with most of our Thai and Cambodian staff. Our place is also home to 2 adopted dogs and 6 adopted cats.
Our resort has a laid-back, natural 'jungle vibe' and our big garden is bordering the jungle with a lot of wild animals living in it!
The resort has a sea view restaurant with a treehouse build on top of it, for extra good views. There are 11 basic fan bungalows and 5 bigger bungalows with air con. The prices are somewhere between 'budget' and 'mid-range'.
We get different types of guests from all over the world and from every age; backpackers, families, adventures, beach lovers and party people.
We love nature and we are one of the organizers of the Trash Hero clean-ups on Koh Chang.
We expect you to help us 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. You can sleep in one of our basic fan bungalows and we provide 2 meals a day.
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
If you have 'green fingers' you can work in our tropical jungle garden, do some landscaping, take out weed, plant new trees and flowers, see what will grow and see what kind of wildlife you will meet.
If you are a good handyman or like to learn, we always have small jobs to do like painting, maintenance on the bungalows, making signs, etc. You can work together with our staff.
We are open to brainstorm together about creative / artistic projects and make 'something cool' to hang or put in the garden, restaurant or bungalows.
If you like the hospitality business and want to learn about tourism, you can! You will have contact with tourists from all over the world, learn how to make them feel welcome, what their needs are and you can learn practical stuff like checking guests in, handling bookings, taking food orders and advise them about activities.
In our place you will have a lot of contact with our Thai and Cambodian staff. They can practice their English language skills and you can both learn from each others culture by hanging out, talk and work together.
We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable Workaway's to help us!
At the moment we are looking for people with gardening / landscaping skills, who can help to maintain our wild and beautiful jungle garden!
But there is different stuff to do as well:
- maintenance on bungalows
- making signs
- small art projects in garden / restaurant
Workaways can sleep in one of our fan jungle bungalows. (Fan, double bed, mosquito net, hammock and open air private bathroom.) Bungalow sleeps 1 or 2 workaways.
Koh Chang is a really great island with so much nature, mountains, wild jungle and chill beaches. You can do many different things, like scuba diving, jungle trekking, kayaking or zip lining. It's also really nice to explore the island on motorbike or to just enjoy the restaurants and bars/café's around.
Our place is located in the village Lonely beach, the 'backpackers hangout' of the island.
In high season (November to April) there is a lively nightlife and you will meet a lot of others travelers. In low season (May to October) it is more quiet and peaceful, it can rain (a lot!), the jungle is lush and you will have the most amazing sunsets.
