By creating Baan Sunsaray as a dedicated hub for the area, we are investing in the sustainable future of this exquisite destination and the people who live here.

Bangkok, Thailand - Sunplay Asia recently acquired a community learning centre “Baan Sunsaray”, as part of its commitment to strengthening the communities in which it operates.

Adrian Bowen, Sunplay Asia’s Managing Director, said: “We are focused on creating world-class projects for our clients and partners, and strongly believe that this should be achieved in collaboration with our residents and the local community. By creating Baan Sunsaray as a dedicated hub for the area, we are investing in the sustainable future of this exquisite destination and the people who live here.” 

Baan Sunsaray features a school, a youth camp, and offers its facilities for community classes and performances such as yoga, dancing, crafts, and more. It focuses on education, interaction, and sustainability. 

The centre offers holistic education for local underprivileged children. The curriculum includes a traditional academic stream coupled with a husbandry program, i.e. practical life skills that they can use to build a sustainable economic future.

The programme includes education on local flora and fauna, painting, weaving, sewing, cooking, and English language classes. A farmer’s market has also been developed to provide a setting for the children to experience earning an income through selling their products created in classes.

The school also offers extracurricular activities and youth camps that welcome overseas and local international school children who wish to learn more about Thai culture and language. The children from Baan Sunsaray’s local school also participate in the classes.

Nawara Pichaiphaet, Baan Sunsaray’s founder and director, and local Sunplay Bangsaray resident, said was excited about the opportunities that Sunplay Asia brings to furthering the growth of Baan Sunsaray. 

“I want to be part of my community and help develop its children in such a way they can have quality lives and a thoughtful attitude to society…and come along their life journey to eventually return the goodness back to their homes, which is where I also call ‘my home’," Nawara said. 

Baan Sunsaray is located adjacent to Sunplay Asia’s flagship luxury residential estate in Bangsaray Thailand; Sunplay Bangsaray, a collection of 70 condominiums and 50 private pool villas. Bangsaray town is located in Sattahip, Chonburi, or about 30 minutes by car from Pattaya and 20 minutes from U-Tapao Rayong Pattaya International Airport.
