This plastic-free resort promises not to use single-use plastic bottles, bags, straws or cutlery and crockery and guests are encouraged to bring their own refillable water bottles and be conscious of their environmental impact during their stay.

CTE x Sisters on Samui Community Garden Initiative
Chai Talay Estate proudly sponsors the Sisters on Samui Community Gardens Initiative (SoS). The SoS project allows families to grow and harvest their own fresh vegetables and fruits through the use of land banks donated to the local community. The initiative came into effect during the COVID-19 pandemic as thousands of local people suffered job losses, without furlough or government support.
Since 1 acre of organic gardens spans part of the Chai Talay Estate, the donation of land banks to the SoS Community Garden Initiative was deemed to be the best vehicle to extend assistance within the region.
With this, guests can freely enjoy the gardens and the organic produce whilst knowing their stay at Chai Talay Estate helps support the local communities.
