Tongsai Bay, Koh Samui, Thailand Environment and Animal Welfare

Email

Built and opened in 1987 as the first luxury eco resort on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand, it is at the forefront of sustainable development. 

Designed and built by the visionary Khun Akorn Hoontrakul who first fell in love with the beautiful property, and subsequently bought it. He then slept on the beach for three months during construction to ensure that no trees were felled and that as little interference with nature as possible was required.

Today you can marvel at the over 60 species of birds on the huge property. Animal welfare and the protection of the environment is a key part of the resort’s green philosophy, as is the respectful treatment of the staff. Many employees have been with the hotel from the very beginning.
