About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

'Friends Bungalow' is located on the north half of Aow Yai beach at Koh Phayam, a beautiful island in the Andaman Sea southwest of Ranong in Thailand. The nature and the wildlife are amazing, white beaches with clear water and only a few tourists. There are no cars on the island.
Our restaurant has a beautiful sea view and our customers can choose to sit under palm trees in the sand, on one of our wooden platforms with Thai pillows and Japanese tables or in our open restaurant underneath a palm leaf roof. We serve delicious Thai food as well as steak, pizza, pasta and other western dishes. Very popular are also the Burmese specialties and our homemade baguettes and cakes.

We are a very uncommon family, 3 different nationalities working hand in hand.
All our kitchen staff is Burmese.
Nicky (Thai) is actually an interior designer who always had the dream to open a restaurant because he is a passionate cook.
We met in Phuket where I (Sonja, German) then worked as a diving instructor.
After the tsunami had destroyed Nickys company in 2004, we had to turn away from Phuket and lived for a while in Chiang Mai and Bangkok. But since we both love to stay by the sea, we were looking 2009 for land on Koh Phayam and built bungalows. Now we take care of 12 rooms and a restaurant while we also have a little girl. That's why we need some help
