The unique designs of Thailand’s eco-friendly hotels leave a lasting impression on their visitors.

Glamping is also available in the shape of tent-like rooms at some hotels. Others, on the other hand, have outdoor beds for a truly natural experience. Because many of these green hotels are all-inclusive, guests can partake in additional environmentally friendly activities such as visiting elephant sanctuaries.
