How quickly the travel industry adapts to trends. And when that trend is eco-responsibility, everyone wins. One of the forerunners of this movement, Evason Hua Hin takes a holistic approach to saving the planet. A mushroom hut creates compost for the organic gardens, and the gardens themselves are cultivated in raised beds using recycled materials as a way of teaching the local community about responsible reuse. Residing on twenty acres featuring tropical gardens, lotus ponds and sweeping Gulf of Siam views, this gorgeous resort offers guests a wealth of ways to unwind, from tennis, spa treatments and Thai cooking classes to participating in the morning food offering to Buddhist monks. Along with employing permaculture principles, turning old bed sheets into laundry bags and using rechargeable batteries to avoid cluttering landfills, the resort focuses on social responsibility, providing English for tourism classes to local youth, contributing to foster homes for the disabled and hiring disabled staff members in an effort to serve as an example of equal opportunity employment.
