Who we are

What's unique about our resort / home?

At a material level, we offer most of the expected resort facilities. What’s a little bit different is that we exist with the intention to help visitors to experience what their soul most needs; whether that’s reconnecting meaningfully with loved ones, being alone, creating art, reflecting on a necessary life shift, or connecting with nature in order to keep the flame of inspiration burning onward in our heart along our journey.

To support this, we aim to offer a variety of tools including yoga mats in all rooms, tilting art desks, nourishing plant-based food, homely service, awesome sunset views, painting tools, musical instruments, a beachfront, dozens of games, relationship-strengthening prompts, a bay perfect for kayaking, a punching bag, and Muay Thai gear, an outdoor gym, kettlebells, gym rings, a yin-yang hot and cold spa, steam room, a sauna, unlimited filtered drinking water, plus free hugs, free chats, and human comradery.

Guests and friends have stayed to write books, paint, draw, build better relationships, create motivational courses and content, and create amazing memories. Many beautiful friendships have formed here. To get the most out of this place, we encourage you to bring the intention to create something uplifting – even if it’s a mindset – for yourself or others. 

We’d like the Earth and its inhabitants to suffer as little as possible due to our business. This is why we used bamboo to build our domes, which are made to feel as organic as possible by emulating the curves of nature instead of the block shapes that make up most artificial structures. Our cocoon-like rooms should feel like a nice hug from Mother Nature.

We don’t serve meat but are more than happy to refer you to nearby local seafood restaurants and businesses. For us, community support is as important as supporting the ecosystem.

We have a food garden with medicinal herbs, vegetables, fruits, spices, and flowers. Our long-term goal is to implement a full permaculture system.

We honor all individuals as thinking, feeling, and evolving beings, and acknowledge that we all thrive from extra support. We hope that you find our space beneficial to experiencing more joy, more beauty, and more soulfulness. Your kindness, ideas, and attitude of openness are well-received here.

Jaiyen” means ‘Calm Heart’ in Thai. We believe that Jaiyen, both our place and a calm heart, are ideal spaces from which we can cultivate the recharging and strengthening of the spirit.
