    Beschreibung

    Hard work since 2002 has brought us to where we are today - a successful beachfront concept on Koh Lanta with a unique approach and a different “way of thinking” than other places. A few things make us stand out from the crowd:

    1. Our COMPASSION for animals in distress on the island. Our profits go to the animal welfare charity that the owner founded.
    2. Our true PASSION for food and a desire to create a laid-back, and welcoming atmosphere for people from all around the world.

    Our place consists of:
    - A professional and fun open-air creative Thai Cooking School
    - A good but small restaurant one of the best on the Island, we serve a 6 dish Tasting menu that changes every day.
    - A small beach bar, with great cocktails (the talk of the town)
    - 9 cozy basic budget bungalows for people to rent, who appreciate what we are doing.
    - Our place is recommended in almost all world wide guide books
    - The old animal shelter was also here before until we built the new one 7 years ago which is 10 min. away with motorbike from us. We still do have some rescue animals here, at the moment 1 dog and 18 cats.

    Junie, the owner of this business and the founder of the animal welfare centre, gives everything she owns to the welfare of animals and lives a very simple life.

It's not always sun and fun here. We have many cases of animal abuse. Here is one of many "bad" cases that has a happy ending, because of the work we do. Doc Dek before: Was pored boing oil on as a stray dog, Why? He was only asking for some some food. This is where is as of today, in his forever adoption home in Denmark ;o)

Doc Dek before: Was pored boing oil on as a stray dog, Why? He was only asking for some some food. This is when we rescued him. This is when he was recovered after 2 months treatment with us.

A few of rescue dogs preparing for x-mas holidays. Saam, Deng, Gigi (which has been localy adopted to a great forever home)
For the last 6 years in May, we have also sponsored and welcomed \"Children of the Forrest\", at our place for a fun cooking lesson, swimming, playing, walking our homeless rescue dogs. They have never seen the sea before. Children of the Forrest is a non-profit charity who helps homeless refugee children from Burma. So... we don\'t \"only\" care about animals!

Last year we started to take a different groups of our rescue dogs to the next remote Island on Sundays (our day off) Both 2, 3 and 4 legged have allot of fun, picnic, swimming, running and playing, a few beers if you want. It's become a tradition for those who want to join. The best day off ever!
