Thailand will soon open the world’s first in environmentally friendly and vegan luxurious hotels. The hotel is named PlantLife Hotel Sanctuary. The hotel will give guests an opportunity to share the time with rescued animals and also explore the beautiful nature that is surrounding them. The hotel has a simple mission and that involves providing a luxurious travel experience to guests that is vegan while creating experiences that does not compromise ethics. The website states that we can live in luxury with plant life and never cause harm to nature or to the animals that are surrounding us. They believe that no one should be made to suffer for them to achieve their goals of luxury. That is why the hotel ensures that it is vegan in all its operations to protect the wellbeing of its guests, nature, and wild animals. Joanna and Alex Hellier were the founding fathers of PlantLife Hotel Sanctuary. Their disappointment which made them bond was over the lack of vegan accommodations in the hotel industry and they came together to make this a reality. They wanted to protect the environment and then protect animals in nature, and that is why they started the hotel.
Don’t get too excited yet though, the project is to be funded via crowdfunding on Indiegogo, with a goal of USD 870,000 (how much they can get done for that amount is a question for another day), but at the time of writing this article, they had only raised USD 6129 with only 3 days left.
