Three separate houses symmetrically linked together. The first floor lay-out consists of three separate houses symmetrically linked together consistent with the traditional practice of keeping extended families living and working together in the same compound to create the sense of belonging to the family.
As one stands on the first floor terrace with a view overlooking the orchard garden, the adjacent structures are no higher than the coconut palms. The tranquility and the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape is both striking and mesmerizing.
Each house has two rooms which can be partitioned into two adjoining bedrooms by an optional opening door or a family suite. Five windows which open out onto the vast lush gardens and verdant orchards provide ventilation.
The height of the ceiling also promotes the constant circulation of air thus eliminating the need for air-conditioning. To combat humidity, electric fans create the gentle breezes needed to cool off the interior. Visitors consistently note the peaceful sleep they experience as they are awakened only by bird song the next morning.
Adjacent to the sleeping quarters is a separate room which serves as the Thai-style bath house. The bathroom is equipped with modern western-style facilities. On the lower floor, there is ample indoor dining hall for banquet-style seating for 30 to 50 persons, and the Thai House does receive visitors for lunch.
Morning classes start at 10:00 and the afternoon classes start at 14:00. Cooking classes are held in the family kitchen amidst an orchard of mango, banana, papaya and coconut trees, and a kitchen garden growing the fresh herbs and spices used in cooking school recipes and the food you'll enjoy during your stay.
Lessons, which are conducted in English, feature brief lectures, ingredient preparation, hands-on cooking demonstrations, and time for questions and discussion. What follows afterwards is that everyone literally enjoys the fruits of their success by eating in the relaxed environment of The Thai House.
