We are a little family business and we live at the earthen village ourselves. In the high season (Nov-Apr) you'll find us in and around the house and gardens, always mending, building, planting, teaching or chilling. Your stay and experience is designed to be self reliant but we are mostly around and either way available online for any questions you might have.
Note that organized activities and workshops are not included in the Eco Life Adventure, but can be booked additionally.

Staying in a tropical rain forest, in the middle of nature, involves living conditions that are surely a big change from what you are used to at home. The accommodation is designed to give relief from heat and humidity, giving it an open air feeling, similar to camping. We are so excited to offer you this unique and authentic experience, living in a natural building, all hand made with free shapes and creative details.
Please note our little Organic Teahouse and Earth Shop are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Your friends are welcome but not overnight. ASALANTA is situated in a local village where people usually wake before dawn. We like to respect their lifestyle and keep noise to a minimum after 10 pm. Please also keep that in mind whenever you are passing through the village at night.
We are a cheerful family of 3, enjoying slow life in an earthen house we have built ourselves. Dad, Aoi is Thai and originally from Bangkok, Mum, Anke is Dutch, from a little village in the county side and little Asa has been adding color to life since May 2015. In 2009 we purchased a piece of land in the heart of Lanta Island in the south of Thailand. Over the years we have worked and learnt together with volunteers from all over the world. Right now ASALANTA is a little sanctuary, in the midst of pristine nature for you to be enjoyed, to get inspired and feel empowered. We are passionate about running our Eco Life Adventure, Organic Teahouse, Earth Shop and Education Park. We practice, promote and teach sustainable solutions like natural building, the growing and using of bamboo and creative recycling.
