Travel Experience

Bangkok Tree House sits proudly in Bangkok’s so-called Green Lung, an apt nickname for the government protected oasis that is Bang Krachao. Cut off from Bangkok’s urban heart by the dramatic curves of the Chao Phraya river, crossing over to Bang Krachao is like going back in time. Time traveling isn’t easy — but that’s half the point. A ride to Bang Na station on the MRT, a short cab ride to the pier, and a longtail boat across the Chao Phraya later, we found ourselves standing on the wobbly, bobbing pier of Bangkok Tree House, excited for two nights in the serene setting after getting bummer news in the big bad city.

Responsibility

The establishment's green facilities will include: Green Architecture: - Green roofs for guest rooms (more outdoor space and less aircondition areas) - Edible green walls and roofs that help provide passive insulation - Use of organic material and up-cycled garbage in hotel's construction Green Energy: - All outdoor lighting will be powered by wind and solar energy - Sensors automatically switch off all power when guests leave room - Energy efficient lighting (LED) and appliances (eg. hot water from solar heater) - Re-use of cooking oil as bio-diesel Green Waste Management: - On-site composting of garbage and other waste (composting toilets available) - Re-use of grey water for irrigation - No bottled water, all water is freely distributed in glass bottles Other Green mentionables: - Use of only organic cleaning material - All laundry is line-dried - Storage of rain-water for on-site use

Business Case

From tree top rooms that overlook the Chao Phraya river to soaring treehouses that are designed after birds nests, the accommodations here are truly unique, yet the hotel's steadfast commitment to the environment is what makes this one of the most desirable places to stay in Bangkok for the most green of green travelers.
