We need someone come to help about the bar and small restaurant at our small resort in Maung, Thailand. It would be nice if you have any experience on the bar because we'd love to have new ideas! :)Learn more

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 applied for an Arts position, expecting to do at least something creative. When I arrived at the resort, I discovered my tasks where cleaning the rooms and changing the sheets... That was it!!! :( The owner is nice, and the room and conditions are good too. But in the end you're just doing housekeeping in really really hot weather... Inside the bungalows. I was suppose to stay for 2 weeks, but the owner wanted me to leave after 1 week all of a sudden. He didn't want to tell me why. Communication with the owner was very harsh. Had to pay for my own incoming and return boat ticket...

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.

Jay és una de las mejores personas que he conocido, el resort és una pasada y la isla increíble!
Koh Phayam és una de las islas más vírgenes que quedan en tailandia y se nota, tranquilidad, naturaleza y buenas personas. Recomendada para amantes de las scooters!
Mis tareas en el resort han sido hacer los desayunos a los guests y si hacia falta ayudaba a limpiar la piscina.
Tienes tu propio bungalow y cocina para cocinar lo que quieras!
Muy buena experiència!
