The Juniper Tree, Thailand
Since 1977, The Juniper Tree has been offering rest and refreshment for Christian workers in Asia, working in situations outside of their own culture. They are an evangelical, non-denominational, charitable foundation, set up to provide places where individuals, couples or families can come to find physical and spiritual refreshment to enable them to return to their sphere of service.
We are not a guest house or hotel, but rather our aim is to provide a home away from home, for Christian workers on a low budget to come and enjoy the peaceful environment.
The Juniper Tree has 2 different locations, one at Hua Hin, on the Gulf of Thailand, south-west of Bangkok and the other in Chiang Mai, Thailand’s bustling second city, in the north of the country.
