    ****Update: 1st February 2020

    Hi Everyone. We’re having a great season here and with the help of many volunteers we have made some big strides at the resort; new website, guest book and interior design plans. We currently have two designers and project managers here at the resort that have made renovation plans for eight rooms.

    WE NEED DIY PASSIONATE FIXER UPPERS ASAP. Ideally for February and March while the designers are here working on the project with you as a team.

    We are looking for one to two people that can help implement the room renovations.

    It will consist of tasks like sanding wood and painting, removing nails and old wood boards and laying tile. There will also be fun projects like making wall art and turning old cabinets into new modern cabinets. If you love DIY projects this will be very fun and rewarding. We will also be happy to help you take photos if you’re building a portfolio of your renovation skills.

    There are seven rooms that are on a floating raft and one hillside bungalow with a river view. We have the plans and design ready and we need someone (or a couple) that can bring their love and passion for seeing outdated structures get a fun facelift. The designers will be here helping every step of the way.

    Bring your ideas and come enjoy the famous mountainous area of Kanchanaburi, Thailand.

    Dear workawayers,

    I am Champ (that's really my name) I'm originally from Bangkok Thailand, right now I am working as an officer in the Spanish embassy and helping my parents as an online marketing manager for their little resort in Kanchanaburi Province. I have travelled to different countries in the world through Workaway program and have made so many memorable stories along the way. I fully understand how important it is to become a global citizen in the world we are living now. Cultural understanding and the ability to adapt yourself in the new environment are super important nowadays and that is why I am here both as a HOST and also as a WORKAWAYER.

    I am looking for the person with the same kind of mentality, the person who really want to immerse yourself in the new culture, learning new language(maybe) and put your effort on making a difference to the resort.
    My dad has spent 15 years on this project putting all his efforts and money to make his dream becomes reality.
    This place has been the little heaven for our family since I was so young, it's a traditional thai style resort with the riverside view in the middle of the mountain(which lies between the border of Thailand and Myanmar) also located very close to a beautiful waterfall.

    If you're interested in
    1. immerse yourself in the real thai culture with the local people.
    2. living in a beautiful nature of tropical paradise.
    3. using your knowledge in online marketing, web designing or customer service in a foreign country.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me :)

    and I can't wait to welcome you to be part of our family.
