Bangkok Treehouse

It may be hard to believe, but travel less than two kilometers from the bustling heart of Bangkok, across the muddy river waters of the Chao Phraya River, and you are in the semi-rural “green lung of Bangkok” surrounded by mango palms and lamphu trees.

It is in this setting that the highly anticipated, all-green, 12 suite Bangkok Tree House makes it’s debut in January 2012. Originally scheduled to open in November 2011, the recent floods that devastated Thailand have delayed the opening by a few weeks.

Green Philosophy

Owner Joey Tulyanond envisioned and built Bangkok Tree House to be more than carbon neutral. They promise to clean up one kilo of trash from the Chao Phraya River for every booking made.

Bangkok Tree House even have their own “Green Alphabet”, with examples being  F is for “Food at the Bangkok Tree House is organic, fresh and 100 percent ‘artificial anything’ free”; N is for natural swimming pools: Our pools do not rely on chemicals such as chlorine that harm you and the local ecology. Instead we use biological filters to naturally purify the water; and Z is for “Zero waste goal. We follow the ‘Six Rs’ of sustainable living: Refuse, Refuse, Refuse, then Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.”

Rooms
Each standard suite is divided into three levels (living room, bedroom and roof deck), offering views of the surrounding river, mangroves and coconut plantations.

Access

As the Bangkok Tree House is not accessible by road, guests arrive via a dedicated shuttle boat across the Chao Phraya, disembarking onto a floating pontoon overlooked by the hotel’s gourmet organic restaurant. The pier from which to catch the shuttle boat is only 1.5 kilometers from BTS Bangna Skytrain station (5 minutes by taxi, 10 minutes by bike)

Nearby attraction include the Bang Namphueng Floating Markets, which is just 10 minutes by bicycle (Bangkok Tree House provides bicycles for guest use for free), and Si Nakhon Khuean Khan Botanical Park (20 minutes by bicycle).

    Collecting one kilo of trash per booking makes you carbon neutral?! You seriously need an education on the subject. What about all the steel and concrete used? The air conditioners? Water heaters? The water-wasting rain-shower heads? Where does the waste water go? What about all the greenery cut down on the building site? Why were you even allowed to build outside the seawall? The vegetation you cut down protects the bank of the Chao Phraya from erosion.

    Green? Hardly.

    Hi Phil,

    Thanks for your comment, and apologies for the misunderstanding. The Bangkok Tree House is not carbon neutral, we do not pay to offset our carbon footprint as the market in Thailand is still very young – i.e. no independent organization to monitor these carbon offset businesses.

    Moreover, we do not claim to be carbon neutral in any of our publications and will ask the author to remove the reference so as not to create a misunderstanding.

    However, we try our best to lessen our impact such as using alternative energy (wind and solar) for our external night lighting, green walls and roofs, the smallest and most efficient A/Cs (9,000 btu), tree planting programs etc.

    You can read more about our green efforts here: http://www.bangkoktreehouse.com/i-m-green.html

    No business can be 100% green, but we are doing our best to lessen our impact and make a positive change in our community.

    If you have any additional questions you can write to me directly at:

    Joey, you are the man! Don’t listen to haters like this idiot! The fact that you are even willing to do something for the environment is commendable. People unfortunately need to complain about something! Not to mention that you are bringing people closer to nature. Your hotel is a breath of fresh air to the world. I wish you the best of luck and cannot wait to stay at your hotel!
