NOTE: Phuan Naturist Village stopped operating on 28 September 2020.
Phuan Naturist Village south of Pattaya will continue as one of the most popular naturist recreational facilities in Thailand. A planned closing of the place by end of February has thereby been avoided. Members of Naturist Association Thailand will experience no interruption of service.
Naturist Association Thailand signed on Christmas Eve 24 December 2018 at 18.00 at Phuan Naturist Village a monthly rental agreement with Miss Jathuporn Pikulwong who holds the lease and business rights to the area. According to the contract, Naturist Association Thailand will rent the whole area on a monthly basis from January 1, 2019 with the purpose of turning the area over to be used exclusively by its members for recreational purposes. The current renting of rooms on a daily basis will be changed to be a usage charge of the club, which will be charged to the member's account.
"We want the members to feel as little change in the way they today use Phuan Naturist Village," says Gregers Moller, founder of the Naturist Association Thailand.
"Booking will be continued visually as if nothing has changed, reservation fees will be charged as today, etc. We will try to minimize the feeling that there is a change."
On the management level, Miss Jathuporn "Mae Porn" Pikulwong will as of 1 January 2018, no longer be in charge. Instead, Naturist Association Thailand has assigned Mrs. Jai Kendall as Resident Manager of Phuan Naturist Village. Other staff have been offered to continue and the team will be expanded little by little as the right candidates can be found.
