Súper recomendado. La isla es grandiosa, bastante tranquila y salvaje, con playas que vas a poder disfrutar prácticamente para ti solo pues es un lugar que aún no se encuentra inundado por el turismo. Jay es una persona muy amable y siempre dispuesta a escuchar proporcionando todas las cosas necesarias para tener una buena estadía mientras ayudas con algunas tareas.
Ko Phayam es un lugar realmente muy bonito, sin turismo exagerado, es recomendado para personas que esten acostumbrados a la selva y la disfruten, por que hay mosquitos, muchos insectos y hace calor, pero es un lugar mágico, las playas son muy bonitas y el atardecer en log beach es wow, Jake y Nan son buenas personas, hacen que el trabajo sea ameno y no tuve problemas con las comidas, ya que yo como muchísimo, como si no hubiera un mañana y sin embargo Jake nunca tuvo problema con eso y yo no tuve problemas con el, la verdad es que la pase muy bien y lo recomiendo 100% así que mucha suerte (:
Jay (the owner) is a great guy and he will do everything to make you feel at home, although the communication is a little bit hard because of language, also I did't get a day off and the work is different everyday for example somedays you're done at 13:00 (if you have a nice other volunteer) but other days when jay is gone you have to check in guest and you're at the resort all day but it's a nice place and you get a lot back for your work so it's a great way to save money on your trip but you just have to be lucky with the other volunteer.
I had a really good time at Himmapan, although it was low season and first I was there as the only volunteer. But it was also season for renovation, improvement and innovation, so there was quite some work for me to do. The owner, Jay, is a great guy! Friendly, supportive, open minded and laid back and easy going, it was fun with him and never boring.
If it is already such a beautiful place in the off-season, I can imagine how lively the resort will be with a lot of guests and more volunteers. I'd like to come back again and can highly recommend this place for other volunteers.
Karina is an amazing volunteer! Her knowledge and skills in many areas are magnificent and were very beneficial for Himmapan. She not only did the Feng Shui calculation for the whole premises, but she immediately executed the painting of the bungalows in the adequate Feng Shui colours during her stay, which made a great difference in the atmosphere here. And out of her passion as an Interior Designer she implemented a lot of improvements for us and the guests.
I came to know Karina as very innovative and creative, reliable and responsible, always helpful, friendly, cooperative, dedicated, acting on her own initiative, and always for the best of the Himmapan and our community.
It was a gain and pleasure to had have her with us.
It was a really good experience, if you looking for a place to relax and connect to the nature its the perfect place to be.
The host is really nice, I had a really good time.
The accommodations are good and they are getting improved. The place is beautiful and I hope I can visit again sometime.
