Yaowawit – More Than Just a School

Yaowawit is located two hours north of Phuket in the tropical countryside of Phang Nga. Our lodge has 15 rooms and is a great place to relax, with a farm to explore, a pool and stunning views of the surrounding hills and many things to do nearby. We can arrange for you to join activities with the children or book one of our activity packages.

Nearby are temples, hot springs, Khao Lak-Lumru National Park featuring stunning waterfalls, hiking trails and views you need to see to believe as well as the Kapong Sunday market. Within driving distance is Khao Lak which is a popular tourist destination known for its beaches, diving, island tours and markets.

Activities & Trips

There is plenty to do both in-school and outside of the school.  Inside the school you can do things such as working on the farm and agriculture projects, assisting with our English classes, hospitality classes, dance and music classes and much more.

Outside the school you can visit the local temple and museum, go river rafting/canoeing on a day tour, visit waterfalls and caves, go on a jungle trekking and elephant excursion, visit the local markets or just go sightseeing around the local Kapong district and many other activities.

Pre-Vocational Program

We teach hospitality training in collaboration with the JW Mariott Hotel Group in Phuket as part of the students pre-vocational program. We use the Yaowawit Lodge to give our students practical experience speaking to the guests in English and serving.

Hospitality services employ a significant number of people in Thailand, and we hope that their experience and education at Yaowawit School will give them the skills they need to be successful in this area.
