  • Description

    Description

    We are an Eco camp/resort located in Khao Sok, Surat Thani province in Thailand. We work on various social and sustainable projects and have our own Thai School Camp on-site, where we support children from the surrounding communities by hosting weekly Environmental Education Camps for free.
    Learning about sustainability and nature is not part of the Thai curriculum, which is why our owner saw the opportunity of making the world a better place by setting up a nature Camp for the local community children to learn about and gain a true appreciation of nature.
    We believe that “by simply introducing children to a pristine and beautiful natural environment, they will learn to love nature and become advocates for preserving the environment in the future”.

    Also, we have our own on-site farm where a variety of herbs and vegetables are grown organically to be used at our restaurant for our guests.
