  • Description


    We are looking for a volunteer with right attitude to help us out during the pandemic. We require you be to fully vaccinated and show respect of the Thai government, following the guidelines set out during this time.

    We are lucky enough that our resort is in a remote place, away from the main tourist area.

    As you can see, our reputation was very good and we have a famous reggae hippie bar with live bands and DJ’s and fire shows. Through the pandemic we have to change slightly the style of our bar and bungalows and go back to basics. We will only have a certain number of rooms open and our bar will only sell a few limited drinks.

    We are looking for someone with experience, living or working in a tranquil and remote environment, someone who is responsible and can be self-sufficient and lone work at times. .

    We are now opening to tourist and we need help to check in our guests, and help to maintain the front of house, with light cleaning duties.

    Our bar and bungalows are situated perfectly amongst the lush rain forest and the base of the famous Tonsai cliff, just a five minute walk from the peaceful beach and towering limestone cliffs. Living back to basics and living off the land.

  • Help


    We require the volunteer to help us re -open our resort. Due to the pandemic we were closed for 2 years. We are opening the resort slowly. We have a certain number of rooms open to our guest and will need you to check in the guest and answer any questions they may have, and help to keep the front of house areas clean and following the governments guidelines on COVID, i.e wearing masks, social distancing, hand sanitising .

    For reception, we just require that you follow our check in guidelines and show the guest to there rooms. The manager works online on the mainland and you will be able to contact her with queries.

    The reception and garden area all at the front of our resort, require some light cleaning duties. and reception area, sweeping the floors and collecting any rubbish from the front garden, to help our place clean and tidy.

    You will be staying in one of our resort volunteer rooms. We will provide you with a room and free water. Please bring a refillable water bottle with you. Our resort is a five minutes’ walk to the beach. We have a restaurant onsite, where you can buy food.

    There is plenty to do on your time off especially if you’re an avid rock climber; we have some of the best rock climbing here in Tonsai and Railay. Railay beach is a short walk away.

    The bungalows are basic and in the jungle, there is only cold water showers and fans. We are in the jungle, so expect to see bugs and other wildlife. We have no WIFI and our electric times are only 6pm to 12am.

    All around is peace and tranquillity, life for us here is very simple and laid back and this is reflected in our bar and bungalows. If you like living back to basics and have experience in remote places, then our place would be great for you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a small resort and we live a life style here that some are not use to. Our bungalows are basic and equipped with a bed, mosquito net and fan. The bathrooms are western sit down style. We also use cold showers which are refreshing but please bear in mind its 30+c here during the day so the water is not cold like European standards.

    Tonsai is classed as main land but we are cut off from everyone else the same as Railay because we are around a bay. It is easy to reach Ao nang and Krabi if you wish to go away on days off.

    All the resorts on Tonsai generate their own electric. using generators. Our electric is only on at 6pm and goes off at 12am. There is no WIFI.

    Please bring a refillabale water bottle, a torch just in case and mozzie spray is always handy.

    If you enjoy nature and have a sense of adventure then this placement will be for you! We will do everything to ensure you have a comfortable stay but this is for someone who can manage without life’s luxuries and relax in the beautiful place we live.
