Located two hours away from Phuket and in a tropical countryside, great for relaxation, Yaowawit Lodge gives you a jungle view of our farmland, where you can go for walking, jogging or simply exploring the plants that we have grown organically. The lodge has 15 rooms and is next to the school. Both are on the hill. But the farm is down the hill. And on the farm edge, our outdoor swimming pool is open all day for you to enjoy. From the pool, you can marvel the green hills around it and the view of Yaowawit School sitting on one of them. By staying at our lodge, you can also take part in school activities with our children to whom the income of your stay will go. Outside Yaowawit, you can also explore neighbouring villages. Kapong is the main village, about three kilometres away, and there you can see local people who still live their daily life according to Thai culture. On some occasions, you can join their parades to experience unique Thai festivities firsthand.

"Being a guest at the Yaowawit Lodge was a wonderfully moving experience. This was one of my nicest holidays ever. Everybody made me feel so welcome, and I feel privileged to have learned so much more about the Thai culture - and about its potential. Anybody who cares about Thailand should spend a few days at Yaowawit." (Jochen Voswinkel, Germany)

If you look for a stay in Thailand not only for doing vacation but also to learn about Thai culture and get an inside look in the school and the childrens lifes, I would definetively recommend Yaowawit to you. I really enjoyed the swimming pool and the incredible nature there is nearby (for example if you explore the farm), because the School and Lodge are directly suited in the rainforest. If you want a little bit more action and be more involved with the School you can play with the children who are very kind hearted and open to everyone. The staff also is very friendly.

I stayed 3 days here. I visited here as one of the school business trip. Our server was children. They provided all dishes and clean up the dishes after we ate. The hospitality spirit was awesome. I want to visit here one day! 3日間、学校のプログラムのボランティア部門としてここに泊まった。虫もたくさん出たりと大変な事も多数あったが、私は日本では体験出来ない事の一つだなと思い、一つ一つ楽しみながら暮らしていた。一つ言うなら、私は癖っ毛なので、そういう人は自分でドライヤーを持っていくべきだと思う。備え付けのドライヤーはないので。それ以外はいい眺め(ジャングルの中)がバルコニーから見えるので、そこからの景色はいつ見ても飽きなかった!

Yaowawit gives a home and education to around 140 children from underprivileged backgrounds. It is located in the middle of the beautiful green jungle, near the pretty city of Kapong and only 2 hours from Phuket and 40 minutes from Khao Lak. To teach the children amongst many other things the skills of hospitality, the school runs also a lodge. We stayed there as a family with two children for four nights and it was a tremendously inspiring, rewarding experience. - the guestrooms are very clean, tastefully with bamboo furniture decorated, spacious rooms - you can get besides breakfast also lunch and dinner, deliciously cooked by the school's wonderful cook - meals are served by the children, you eat in an open dining room overlooking the lush jungle - a pool is provided, while swimming you can enjoy the view and the sounds of the jungle - there is also an organic farm as part of the school project with lemongrass, papayas, chicken and even goats - the Yaowawit children are awsome, very open, curious, happy and energetic little people - a joy is also to see how the kind and motivated staff and teachers form a very well organised community - whenever possible you are welcome to join, in the evenings you can join activities like games, music or meditation - many interesting excursions are waiting like a market in Kapong, temples, waterfalls, elephant parks and a very nice hot spring - we rented a car, but the school can also arrange a transfer from the airport in Phuket - it's 2600 THB/night for two including breakfast, since the lodge is non-profit, the school and the children directly benefit from your money Yaowawit is definetly a must see place and one of the very best thing you could do when you are in South Thailand!

If you are in this are you have to stop buy at this school/restaurant/lodge. Either you just have a glass of water and take a tour through the school or you have Lunch at the schools restaurant which is run as a kind of hospitality course for the children. Pa Tui makes the best Thai food, this is a big compliment if I say that I live since 5 years in Thailand and I like to eat :) The Lodge is located directly in the middle of the jungle. Great experience for anyone. The best part about this place is that all the profit goes directly to the 140 children who life there 24/7. It is a must visit in Phang Nga inner country, even worth a 45 min drive from Khao Lak! You will not regret it!!!
