Ethics Uncompromised, as you Enjoy a Trip To a Vegan
“THE WORLD’S FIRST VEGAN, SUSTAINABLE LUXURY RESORT, UNIQUELY CREATED FOR YOU TO ENJOY THE KIND & GENTLE COMPANY OF RESCUED ANIMALS,” reads the homepage subtitle of Plant Life Hotel Sanctuary’s website. The sanctuary is yet to open in Koh Phangan Island in Thailand. Founders Max Hellier and Joanna met while on a trip. They resonated with each other’s view, and both felt a lacking of proper sustainable and vegan accommodation that ultimately became the fulcrum of the five-star project that will deliver ultimate vegan traveling experience without harming the planet and its life.
The bane of chemical-laden additives, plastic-laden slippers, and animal-derived foods pursued them to bring into life a resort that is a rectification of all the shortcomings they found in accommodations worldwide. The couple said, “We are both long term vegans for the animals, for the environment and our health.” And undoubtedly their idea reflects in the project.
What is so Vegan?
You already have an idea, why they’re calling themselves a ‘vegan’ and ‘sustainable’ hotel sanctuary, with their permanent residents of rescued animals, and set up on a lush green 5 acres land that’ll harbor abundant of coconut trees. There will be 23 spacious and luxurious villas with the interiors crafted entirely of cruelty-free bamboo, cotton, and pineapple-derived leathers. The vegan resort and hotel will also serve a fully vegan menu prepared from locally sourced ingredients.
The resort will be self-sufficient in terms of power consumption as well, with rooftop solar panels setup. Max Hellier said they aren’t just any hotel, rather a living, breathing, compassionate business that functions with real values.
Here You Won’t Be The Only Guest
Plant life Hotel sanctuary will reportedly host as many as 100 rescued animals (Cats and dogs among others) from the streets of Thailand and would be given a safe haven. According to the resort website, if we can lead a life without causing harm to the planet, animals and our health, then that is how we’re supposed to continue.
“We believe that it is not necessary for anyone to suffer in order for us to meet the needs of our guests. The wellbeing of our guests, the planet and our fellow animals is tremendously important to us and close to our hearts, therefore we ensure we are vegan in every aspect of our operations and of our lives.

“We envision a world where animals do not need our care and refuge in order to thrive, but for now, Plant Life is a safe harbor for animals in need of a caring home.
“Using sustainable energy, a zero waste policy, local sourcing and a self-sufficient water system, we are working towards a greener planet and healthier home,” mentions the Plant Life website.
The Vegan Resort opened its crowdfunding campaign on March 16 on Indiegogo in its quest to raise $870,000 required to build the project. If you support the campaign you’ll be held as a Plant Life member. And if you get lucky, you could win one of the four weekly prizes of a three-night stay at the resort that Plant life will continue to offer for the upcoming three years.
The project seems promising, especially with its vegan-friendly and sustainable outlooks. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
