What makes Soneva Kiri sustainable?
Soneva Kiri supported Restaurant Against Hunger since 2010 and donates US$0.50 of each main dish goes to projects that help fight malnutrition. By 2018, we have supported thousands of children suffering from malnutrition.
WWW’s objective is to raise money to finance the provision of safe water to people who do not have access to an improved water supply. Soneva Kiri has banned imported water and produces its own mineralized drinking water in reusable glass bottles.
Soneva Kiri set up a coral nursery in 2011 where branching corals grows.
What makes The Sarojin sustainable?
While plastic has many valuable uses, it’s no secret that the extent we rely on single-use and disposable items causes severe environmental consequences. According to research done by the UN, one million plastic bottles are being purchased every minute around the world – resulting in major pollution of our planet and oceans. With this in mind, we set out to reduce the plastic waste we produce at The Sarojin. From small changes such as replacing plastic straws with sustainable lemon grass alternatives to investing $50,000 in a brand-new on-site water bottling plant – we’re constantly looking for new and innovative ways to help the environment.
The bottling plant has been in operation since October 2019 and upon arrival, all of our guests are given refillable glass bottles in their room with water from our on-site plant. We’ve already seen fantastic results from this initiative and we estimate that we could reduce plastic waste by up to 120,000 bottles per year with our new plant. In a time when every little really does help, we’re really proud to have been able to introduce this for our guests.

The LED-lit rooms are named after and decorated with different types of insects, which is meant to reflect the owner’s deep appreciation for nature.

What makes River Kwai Jungle Rafts sustainable?
It is our lasting philosophy that we care about sustainable environment. We conserve the environment by setting a septic tank under each room to avoid dumping the waste directly into the river. This type of Sewage treatment effectively helps to decompose or minimalize the waste. All woods used to form rafts, moreover, are woods from dead trees. We choose not to cut down living trees. What we want is to grow with the nature surrounding. The more we conserve, the more beautiful jungle we have.
Moreover, at River Kwai Jungle Rafts we believe in conserving the local culture, but at the same time we want to improve their standard of living and give them education. River Kwai Jungle Rafts resort therefore support Mon community by building Mon cultural temple, Mon Chedi, accommodations, Mon school & playground, drinking water hygienization, proper waste management and helping them fix houses and eradicate malaria from the area.
We offer jobs to locals and also education.
