Thala has proudly achieved Advanced eco-certification through sustainable practices and environmental sensitivity. Deluxe timber eco-designed

bungalows are built high on stilts set within the forest canopy providing a private and unobtrusive approach to nature. All bungalows enjoy ocean,

mountain or forest views. Complimentary onsite walks and talks are conducted by knowledgeable guides who have an intimate knowledge of

wildlife and Thala’s 58 hectares of native forest. Time spent relaxing on timber-decked verandas is enhanced by sightings of birds and butterflies.

A special combination of beauty, wilderness and seclusion awaits you.
