Thailand: Anana Ecological Resort is aiming for a cleaner, greener Krabi

Anana is an eco friendly hotel near Ao Nang in southern Thailand. It is a brainchild of Wolfgang Grimm, a third generation German hotelier. Everything about the hotel such as picking vegetables to eat, natural furnishings in rooms, and going plastic free, are aimed to ensure that the ecosystem is not harmed. There is a regular shuttle from the hotel to the city and transportation via taxi is cheap. The hotel also has a club near the beach, which is quiet compared to other beaches.
- Like driving a Tesla car, it’s quite eerie at first to find oneself propelled along in total silence
- This 59-room hotel only opened just before Christmas 2018 but has already earned a Green Globe sustainable tourism certification
- Disappointing exterior aesthetics aside, this is a resort that shines in ecological and sustainability terms.
“It might seem like a bit of a fairytale, but Grimm is on a mission to replace the belch and roar of the classic longtail boat engine with the near-silent purr of an electric motor – the Thai Tesla, as it were.”
