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!!!

Beautiful spacious, fresh and well presented rooms with comfortable beds, attractive decor and western style bathrooms (after travelling the country side of thailand you get the distinction). These rooms make for a lovely place to stay but then you add to it that you are based at a school/orphanage for children who live on the same property and you are invited to talk and play with the children and be involved with their day is just such an amazing down to earth experience who would pick your stock standard accomodation compared with this. we learnt that the children were learning skills in hospitality and are involved in 'waiting' on us in the dining area with meals being freshly prepared on site. By paying to stay at this school you know that the money you spend is going towards making brighter futures for the students and can actually see it happening before your eyes. There is also a recreation room with wifi for any down time you may have and a fridge for purchasing drinks. i would reccommend this to all my friends and family. for those with mobility issues there are a number of steps at the venue however there are many ramps as alternative routes, but just keep in mind if you arent able to walk up many steps. i will rate this very highly because of the combination of lovely rooms which on an international scale might only be 3/4 star but in the context they are splendid. Almost forgot there is a pool with a mini bar as well as a variety of sustainable farming around the hotel grounds.

I visited Yaowawit in October 2011. I went there with my mum, dad and sister. The lodge is located in the middle of the jungle, but with easy access to local villages, a beautiful beach and the Phuket airport. The rooms we stayed in were a lot better than I had imagined. They were spacious, clean and with a lovely interior. The breakfast and diner were fantastic. We got toast, eggs, bacon and sausages every day for breakfast and a varied diner menu in the evenings. The staff was extremely helpful and kind. I found the history and motivation to set up Yaowawit very interesting and inspiring. We got a tour around the school, which was a truly unique experience. It was good to see that the children learnt how to grow their own crops and be educated, and at the same time have a wonderful time. The lodge gave us the opportunity to relax at the beach, to visit local markets, to learn about the history of Southern Thailand, particularly the tsunami of 2004, and to meet the wonderful children that go to the Yaowawit school. At the end of our stay we were so inspired by the local people and dedication of everyone who helped set up Yaowawit that we decided to sponsor one of the children there. Overall it was an unique experience that I will never forget.

To be part of the Yaowawit School and Lodge is an experience on it's own. What better way to add real value to your stay in this beautiful country. To see children surviving a tragedie like the Tsunami and the strength they show and the effort they make, to ensure themselves of a future, which is provided for them by the warm, wonderfull staff of Yaowawit. Great hospitality, lovely meals, luxureus lodges, great people! An enrichement for everybodies stay in Thailand!

We stayed overnight on the weekend during a mountain bike ride from Phuket to Takua Pa on the coast. We met Vincent, one of the volunteers, who showed us the school, the restaurant and the accommodations. The whole concept of the place is pretty cool, a school for underprivileged children, some direct victims of the 2004 tsunami, some indirect victims, others just struggling from various family issues. Either way, the school has a provided a unique educational opportunity for these children, underprivileged or not, in a beautiful setting. Not only do they have normal school classes, but are kept very busy tending gardens, taking field trips, volunteering at the hospital, learning computer skills, and even music classes. I have never seen a Thai school offering so many different activities. The accommodation seemed pretty dear for 1200 THB per night, but after seeing how large and well appointed the rooms were, I understood. The food in the restaurant was excellent and they served large portions for a very reasonable price. Kapong is one of the prettiest towns in southern Thailand, and the hilly countryside has great mountain biking trails, waterfalls, temples, markets, and a very nice hot springs which is a "must see." If you want a taste of country life as well as doing something to help children, this is a good holiday destination.
