From clear crystal waters to dense lush jungles and rolling hills, iconic locations are magnets that attract travellers seeking relaxation and adventure to Thailand. But as more hotels and resorts start offering rooms or private villas, people may wonder what the perks and privileges of a perpetual holiday lifestyle may be.

Bedroom views
While city life demands us to constantly be ‘on’, resort life allows us to be in sync with nature. Instead of the view of a concrete jungle, you can choose to wake up in your own room to the sounds of ocean waves and exotic birds before heading out for a morning walk along the beach or lake.

And it’s more than beautiful views, many studies have found that waterfront views from your home can reduce stress, not to mention that excellent views can add value to your property. A project that emphasises sea views is Beachfront Bliss in Phuket, among others.

Interesting neighbours
Living in a resort in Thailand means you get to meet and interact with interesting people from many parts of the world. That includes people from your home country and those from other regions, from Scandinavian families who come for a jungle adventure and solo travellers from Asia to British couples on a honeymoon and even an Indian family who comes to Thailand for a lavish wedding.

Unique hobbies
Living close to nature can reinforce an active lifestyle while living in a resort allows you to easily take up or pursue new interests, such as kite-surfing, deep-sea diving, trekking, bird watching, cooking, or star gazing. In a city with a sizeable expat community, you can also meet people who share the same interests. Phuket, for instance, has a number of clubs for water sports.

Chiang Mai also has many Thai boxing and martial arts camps, yoga and meditation studios, in addition to a lot of digital nomads with entrepreneurial minds.

Also, since many resorts are competing for prime locations, you may often find living in a resort means you have a unique neighborhood and easy access to interesting amenities like water parks, luxury golf courses, airports, and interesting attractions. In Hua Hin, for instance, many golf enthusiasts looking to buy close to the famous Black Mountain golf club.

Sansara Black Mountain is a mix of luxury living and 5‐star service ideal for people looking to enjoy an active retirement or long stay vacation in Thailand.

Resort facilities
From spas to bars, living in a resort means you have more facilities than residential projects usually offer. And some unique projects even offer facilities like the Muay Thai kickboxing training room and natural hot springs exclusively featured at Chiang Mai Onsen Wellness. Also, since the resort accepts guests year-round, you can bet that the facilities have state-of-the-art equipment.

The Covid-19 crisis hasn’t just affected humans and businesses; it’s had a profound impact on Thailand’s wildlife- much of which was dependent on tourism for survival. As a result, the Cabinet on Tuesday approved a budget of 435.3 million baht to reduce the impacts of wildlife on people. The budget was requested by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. As elephant camps and “sanctuaries” in Chiang Mai and across Thailand’s North closed back in May, hundreds of elephants were forced to return to their birthplaces to avoid starvation, straining resources and local economies, which were ill-equippped to receive them.

For the third time in a week, activists and protestors gathered under outside old walls of the city to demonstrate. The name of the performance yesterday was entitled “EAT (I’M) ARE”.

And, that someone or something is trying to eat, limit or disqualify their freedom and rights.” Student performer named Benz […]
