The award-winning Rainforest Camp
Our floating camp at the magnificent Cheow Larn Lake doesn’t only provide a highly unique facilities in terms of accommodation. Yes, you are floating on a lake in the middle of one of the world’s oldest rainforests, sleeping in an African style safari tent. However, the uniqueness of the Rainforest Camp goes beyond that. After all, here it’s all about being one with the nature.
This floating resort is designed in a highly responsible and sustainable way by using solar and wind energy and running an exceptional waste management system. Each tent has its own solar panel generating electricity, and all wastewater is collected and treated in a septic tank in the mainland.
As with our other tented camp, the usage of plastic has been reduced to absolute minimum. Guests use refillable, reusable stainless steel bottles for drinking water, whereas water in the tents comes in recyclable glass bottles. Cocktails and other drinks are served with reusable stainless steel straws. All rubbish is taken to the mainland to be sorted.
Furthermore, having a reception area with luggage storage near the pier has helped us to reduce unnecessary boat traffic at the lake. With only small overnight bags taken to the Rainforest Camp, and combining transportation of laundry, fresh food ingredients and other goods we have minimized the number of boat rides in and out of the resort. In 2018, the Rainforest Camp was awarded the Responsible Thailand Award in the category of Eco Lodge.
