We are a group of intercultural wanderers who built these overwater houses as a little haven where you can come to relax, recharge and reconnect. We named our place A la Koh Kood as we aspire to capture the essence of Koh Kood Island, one of the last standing islands in Thailand where the natural environment still remain mostly intact and free from over-exploitation. Therefore, we strive to host responsibly and aim to minimize our carbon footprint while at the same time enhancing your comfort and travel experience 🙂

As much as we want to claim the achievement of being carbon-neutral, we're going to be honest that it is no easy task and we still have a long way to go. This, even with a limited budget however, doesn't stop us from working towards the goals. We knew that we're going to need a well-researched plan so we pitched for a support from the 180 Degree Consulting group, at the branch of the National University of Singapore. Together, we have come up with two main plans that we are currently implementing - one is for our operation's sustainability, another is for our contribution to the community. Should you be interested, please feel free to have a look - we are open to feedback!

of trash generated on Koh Kood during the high seasons alone (April 2018).
60% of waste
are plastics/wet garbage which are sent to the island's landfill. This could pose threats to the environment as it releases toxins into the surroundings.
Increasing rate of animals extinction is a global phenomenon that also occurs at a local level on Koh Kood Island, where animals like Dugong and Great Hornbill have been reported to be endangered species (according to Trat Provincial Offices for Natural Resources and Environment)
