Bangkok Tree House

The Tree House is not for everyone. For your sake and ours, please read on to find out whether you and the Tree House are a compatible match:

 

We won't, don't, can't fumigate the area to get rid of insects and other local species.As we are in tropical country, we do have mosquitoes but the gentle river breeze helps makes insects less of a problem.

We have beautiful outdoor showers in most of our nests, where only birds and other animals can see you. Our nests do have bamboo curtains you can pull down.

We have a natural pond free of chlorine and other chemicals. The water will not be as clear as a chlorine pool and you may have to share the pool with plants and other friendly insects.

We do not have air-conditioners in our public space but instead rely on the natural river breeze. All our nests do have small but efficient air-conditioners so you can sleep in comfort while having minimal impact on the environment.

We do not have roads for cars leading to the Bangkok Tree House, the only way to access our secluded location is by foot, bike or boat.

You will love the Bangkok Tree House if you love trees, plants, exotic lizards, birds, fireflies, cicadas, butterflies and mother nature.

The Bangkok Tree House is a celebration of nature, read our "Green Alphabet" to see how green we are:

 
   

A

ir quality control : All hotel areas are strictly smoke-free for the health of our guests and the environment. We also grow "air cleaning plants" in our guest rooms that help purify the air and produce oxygen at night.
   

B

amboo structure: Bamboo is sustainable as well as beautiful, that is why you see a lot of bamboo in the Bangkok Tree House's wall, floors and even ceiling.
 
   

C

arbon free cooking: Our solar cookers offer for tastier meals because the slow and even rise of temperature allows subtle natural flavors to emerge (lunch only)
 
   

D

ry toilet experience: Dry toilets are readily available for the most avid tree huggers and dual flush toilets in all rooms. (In a 4-person household, using a low-flow toilet conserves the equivalent of 3 swimming pools annually!) - COMING SOON
 
   

E

nergy efficient lighting: Edison patented the incandescent bulb in 1879. We are thankful, but in the 21st century we will only use super-efficient LED and CFL bulbs.
 
   

F

resh food fanatic: Food at the Bangkok Tree House is always in-season and 100% 'artificial anything' free. Our Table d'hote or prix fixe menus feature three choices for each dinner course: seafood, Thai and vegan - highlighting fresh, seasonal and organic produce. Since we can better plan our meals, there is less inventory and even less kitchen waste.
 
   

G

reen roofs and walls: Organic vegetables are grown on the hotel premise to provide the kitchen with fresh produce all year round while help keeping your room cool.
 
   

H

iring policy: Hiring locals who live within walking distance from the Tree House is just one way we are making an impact. (Okay this is not a green policy, but you'll agree that it's a good policy.)
 
   

I

ncorporation of local community: Quality herbal soaps, shampoos and food products for guests are sourced from local sellers in the vicinity of the hotel.
 
   

J

oint-purpose design: We equipped the Bangkok Tree House with eco-intelligent design and appliances so we don't need to sacrifice any of our guests' comfort in our quest to become green.
 
   

K

itchen compost: Kitchen & organic waste are all composted at the Bangkok Tree House. Composting reduces waste stream for the landfill, approximately 23% of which comprises food and other organic waste
 
   

L

ine-dried laundry: Sunlight does not only cut energy consumed in drying linens and towels, but also effectively bleaches and disinfects
 
   

M

aking use of renewable energy: At the Bangkok Tree House, 100% of our outdoor lights and restaurant lights are powered by wind and solar energy. (Did you know that in one hour more sunlight falls on the earth than what is used by the entire world population in one year?)
 
   

N

atural swimming pond: Our natural swimming pond does not rely on chemicals such as chlorine that harm you and the local ecology. Instead we use biological filters to naturally purify the water.
 
   

O

rganic everything: At the Bangkok Tree House, everything from cleaning products to bathroom amenities to all the food you eat is organic.

Q

uiet sanctuary in Bangkok: Isn't that an oxymoron? We assure you that even though the we are only five minutes or 1.5 kms from the BTS sky-train (Bangna station), we are world away from hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
 
   

R

The island remains very natural and covered by a vast expanse of fruit orchards and native vegetation. Why not explore the area's wonderful bike path with the free bicycles we provide? This promises to be a 
                             unique experience!
