Volunteering at Spicy Villa is a great chance to stay in northern Thai countryside, in the middle of the jungle, and learn from locals about life in the mountains.
Staff at Spicy Villa is local Thai and karen. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Volunteer managers are Ploy who speaks English and French, and Tawan who speaks basic English. Make sure to follow their tasks and rules, and you will have a good time with them.
Spicy villa is an amazing immersion in nature: gardening, meals with an amazing view, local kitchen. Simply amazing.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance of sharing this experience with a lot of other backpackers, which surely would have made this even funnier. By the way, Tawan did his best to make us fell at home and he definitely succeeded! He’s a great worker, a champion pool player and above all an amazing cook. For sure, I bring back home from this experience unforgettable memories!
Super highly recommended!!!

It was an amazing experience! The place is incredible, it’s far far from the city and it’s surrounded by the nature! Moreover there are waterfalls close the villa. I really love the place. The activists that I did were especially gardening and cleaning and it was ok.
Furthermore Tawan, a great chef, made us learn a lot about thai food. We hadn’t had the opportunity to know Samart.
Sometimes we had some misunderstanding due to the communication. We couldn’t understand what to do or how to do something.
As it was my first volunteer experience, it was great :)

Spicy Villa was my first experience like volunteer and was amazing. The place and views are wonderful. The locals are such kind and gentle people. The food is so tasty, we tried many local dishes made it by Tawan, the best cooker. The work is hard but satisfyng: you should go with the desire to work as a team and observe the locals who know how to do it, without waiting for the exact instructions. They are so worker and know how to do the best way. If you like nature, thai culture, thai food and work in team, I really recomend this experience.Thanks Samart and Tawan for let us know Spicy Villa
