Evason Hua Hin

A forerunner in the eco-responsibility 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 to teach locals about responsible reuse. Set on 20 acres featuring lotus ponds and sweeping Gulf of Siam views, this gorgeous resort offers a wealth of experiences, from Thai cooking classes to participating in the morning food offering to Buddhist monks. Along with turning old bed sheets into laundry bags and using rechargeable batteries to avoid landfill, the resort focuses on social responsibility, contributing to foster homes and hiring disabled staff members in an effort to serve as an example of equal opportunity employment.
