“A truely special place - meet Thai kids & relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2011

Yaowawit is a very special place. Set-up after the Tsunami, it is from its origin a school/orphanage for kids with sad family stories. Meanwhile own agricultural activities, a lodge and a restaurant help to earn money in order to support this project. So you have the great opportunity to spend days in beautiful nature, relax at a spacious pool, and if you like, get to know 100 happy and very energetic kids, who make you smile the moment you meet them. We support one of children financially, so we have our "special friend" our "godchild" at Yaowawit. That's another strong point about Yaowawit in case you are interested in supporting a Charity Organisation and want to make sure the money directly reaches the target audience. Until now, we went twice to Yaowawit. For my 7year old daugther it is a tremamdous learning opportunity, and very joyful (same is true for me as mother). It helps to change perspectives, reflect on real values in life - I personally feel especially for us as European Expats in Asia a very rewarding experience!

We enjoyed our recent visit to the Yaowawit School Hotel in Kapong, in a gorgeous location in the jungle near Khao Sok national park. The executive suite was spacious, as were the superior rooms, and well appointed with a big bed, comfy couches, a separate office and luxurious bathroom. What we most enjoyed was meeting the kids who attend the school (and helped to serve breakfast!), talking with teachers about their educational mission and supporting this important program that helps over a hundred disadvantaged children.
