Touch of Nature
Nestled in the peaceful, green surroundings of Amphawa, Samut Songkhram
Samut Songkhram is an ancient province with a long history, is only 63km southwest of Bangkok along highway no.35, approx one hour.
For those who enjoy cultural tourism and traditional ways of life, this province has much to offer, including the Bangkok’s famous floating market Damnern Saduak, Amphawa and Tha Kha. Visitors can take part in one of organized tours available or charter a private boat to do their sightseeing. Beside those three floating markets, there are many places that should visit including ‘Church in the Tree’ (Unseen Thailand), Train Track Market, Boat Trip to see marine life and watch Fireflies and many more. An array of accommodation from home stay to boutique resort have made many ‘back-to-nature’ breakaways perfect.
Among these accommodation properties, one stands out not only because it is setting a new benchmark in service and facilities in Amphawa but also because of its absolutely eco-friendly character. This is asita eco resort, a new intimate boutique property consisting of 20 villas and one Thai house (3-rooms); a perfect holiday haven in Amphawa.
Guests just love the resort’s peaceful setting, which is enhanced by countless pine trees surrounding it and an enormous canal nearby that helps recreate the yonder years of simple but elegant Thai upcountry lifestyle. But here’s a twist: it is run by a veteran team experienced in managing four-star hotels of international caliber and built with facilities equivalent to four-star hotels. Needless to say, the resort is built with eco-friendly materials in harmony with its natural surroundings. Room decorations use natural products to help preserve the environment while also emphasizing space and comfort. The Villa (Standard,Deluxe, Villa Deluxe) and Thai Deluxe are both 42sqm in size and fully furnished. Each room enjoys a view of green trees, spacious bathroom, and separate shower. All the rooms are filled with expected mod cons plus wireless high-speed Internet. There’s even a private natural swimming pool in front of the rooms’ porch for that ultimately relaxing dip.
The bar and restaurant is run by a ‘green and healthy’ policy. While it serves Thai and international food, focus is on local food, with seafood freshly caught from their own marine farm, and cooked with organic vegetables and fruits also grown from their own garden as highlight. It has an outdoor swimming pool and recreational space and offers tour packages, transport to Mae Klong Market, Pak Tor Train Station, Amphawa Floating Market (5-8 minutes), and even provide activities such as biking with a tour guide and map, Thai cooking class, and yoga. Truly every detail have been taken cared of to ensure that every guest at asita eco-resort will enjoy an unforgettable leisure holiday without worrying whether their holiday fun has been infringing too much on keeping a healthy, better environment for us all!
