Our dedication to environmental preservation is unwavering. Through various sustainable practices, we endeavor to minimize our impact on this delicate ecosystem. From responsible waste management to energy conservation, we make every effort to safeguard the environment that surrounds us.
Elephant Parade® is a social enterprise hosting the world's largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues, each a unique work of art created by artists and celebrities. These life-sized baby elephant sculptures are showcased in global cities to promote elephant conservation awareness.
Limited-edition handcrafted replicas and products are made from these artworks, with 20% of the net profits supporting elephant welfare and conservation projects. Our property mascot, 'Smiles Go Miles,' was crafted by self-taught abstract artist Jennie Wood, symbolizing happiness and infectious smiles.
You can support this cause by purchasing smaller elephant versions at The Gallery, with 20% of proceeds benefiting the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) in Chiang Rai. Established in 2006, GTAEF has rescued and cared for numerous injured and abused elephants, built research facilities and elephant hospitals, and protected vast natural habitats from deforestation, improving the plight of Asian elephants.

Once discarded, coconut shells have found a renewed purpose through recycling, ingeniously repurposed for the Kala Massage. This localization not only offers a unique spa treatment but also stands as a commendable eco-friendly endeavor.
The Kala Massage is especially delightful for individuals with tense muscles, as the soothing warmth emanating from the coconut shell expertly resolves knots and tension. The combination of heated coconut shells and pure virgin coconut oil enhances blood and lymphatic circulation, providing relief from discomfort, alleviating soreness, and minimizing swelling and fluid retention.

The lotus lagoon
Rooted in dense mud, lotus plants exhibit a unique rhythm, mirroring the sun's movement. The optimal moment to witness the lotus flowers in full splendor is during the morning, when they unfurl their petals completely. However, as the day progresses, these petals gracefully close, and on overcast days, they might not open at all.
