Baan Luangrajamaitri Historic Inn

They journey to where the History returns

  • Location: Chanthaboon Riverside Community
  • Style: Boutique Hotel (10 Guestrooms)

UNECO's award winning project, Baanluangrajamaitri Historic Inn is the historic house of the Thai Nobleman (Luang Rajamaitri) that was recently renovated into small boutique hotel with 10 unique guestrooms through the model of Social Enterprise. Located at the center of Chanthaboon Riverside Community with a small lovely veranda over Chanthaburi river, each and every room tells the story about Luang Rajamaitri and history of Chanthaburi.

Bannluangrajamaitri Historic Inn is owned by groups of local residents from Chathaboon Riverside Community who together set up this social enterprise, not only to conserve historic buildings, but to bring back life to this local community. UNESCO recognized the achievement of this project that from the strong collaboration among the local residents themselves, the strength from within, will help develop the community in the most sustainable way. Baanluangrajamaitri Historic Inn now becomes the prototype of social enterprise for CBT in Thailand.
