Barefeet Naturist Resort joins group of Thai naturist resorts
Barefeet Naturist Resort joined on 28 November a group of six naturist resorts in Thailand meeting up in Phuket to discuss questions of mutual interest.
In the meeting, the resorts agreed that if a guests stays e.g. at Barefeet and they want to visit one of the other naturist resorts in the group, then Barefeet can book for them at the other resort and the guest will get a 10 percent discount off from the price they would otherwise have to pay for the room.
The resorts also became signatories to a new agreement among the resorts to actively defend each other in case guests should spread negative opinions about other naturist resorts.
The meeting was called in by Paulo Richel, the owner of the Oriental Beach Village which will reopen on 1 December 2022. The other resorts in the meeting were Chan Resort Pattaya, Barefeet Naturist Resort Bangkok, Peace Blue Naiharn Phuket, Harmony Rawai Phuket, and Oasis Villa Phuket.
The resorts also agreed to create a map of Thailand with all the resorts linked to their locations and displaying a QR code to the home page of each resort. A brochure with a description of all the resorts presented together will also be produced. Disraporn Yatprom, who – apart from being the owner of Barefeet Naturist Resort in Bangkok is also professionally a Graphic Designer – offered to create the artwork and provide a price offer for printing the map in different sizes from poster size to A4 flyer.
The resorts also discussed ways of moving Naturist Association Thailand forward. The first step of the strategy is to headhunt for an independent Secretary General of the association. The ideal candidate is a young Thai graduate in a relevant field to be in charge of creating events for the members. The person will also be tasked with working with the tourism authorities to include naturism in Thailand’s tourism campaigns abroad similar to the current inclusion of LGBTQ+ in the Thai tourism campaigns. On the domestic front, the candidate should also work with the forestry department and the national parks authority to establish locations for naturist in areas under their control.
Interested candidates are encouraged to send their CV to email@example.com@thailandnaturist.com

“The launch is very timely since Thailand has just opened for naturist travelers without quarantine,” says Disraporn ‘Dao’.
Midsummer Dinner fun at Barefeet Bangkok
The guests were supposed to bring their own food but in reality only couple one had done so – but they had brought so much, that all could be full!
During the dinner, the lucky draw was held to determine which resort should host AsiaNAT in October this year – winner was Barefeet Heaven Hill in Trang. See separate article.
A Pub Quiz with 25 fast questions was held and Gregers Moller held a camp fire speech when the fire was burning brightly.
In the Nordic countries we light fires on this day because tonight it is the shortest night of the year – and today has been the longest day.
From tomorrow, the days will be shorter and the nights longer until we get to Christmas and it turns around again.
Do you know how important fire is?
Fire is the fourth element. The four elements are earth, water, air and fire defined by a Greek philosopher Empedocles who lived around the same time as Lord Buddha.
But a thousand years before him, in the Veda scripts of Hinduism in India, fire was not just an element – it was a God with the name Agni.
Agni has this unique ability that he can consume an offering or a sacrifice and transport it via smoke and gasses up or over to the world of the gods.
By the end of life, we also use fire when we burn our dead – we use fire for the transportation of our deceased from this world.
In Thailand, we meet the fire god in the old Ramayana as Phra Ploeng.
But fire is more than this physical fire – in hinduism, fire is also inside every human being. The three kinds of fire are the krodha-agni or “fire of anger”, the kama-agni or “fire of passion and desire”, and the udara-agni or “fire of digestion”.
If we go back further, our relationship with fire is much older than hinduism.
Deep in our genetic material, we know fire. We have lived with fire long before we became primates and eventually humans. We are fascinated by fire, we fear fire, we worship fire.
So tonight, I would like to make an offering to the God of Fire.
I thought about it for many days. In the Nordic countries, we often burn a puppet that we pretend is a which. It used to be a live one, actually! Something bad, we want to clean out of our lives.
And then I thought, what bad is there in our naturist lives, that we would like to get rid of? The belief that nudity is a sin – how can we burn that? That nudity is obscene and must be covered – how can we burn that?
Well, if we cannot burn beliefs or perceptions, maybe we can burn the symbol of this? Right? So here you go, I am going to burn my underwear! And to prove my point, I have also taken one of Dao’s bras and will burn that too!
Go to hell!
NAT held first Nude Art Day at Barefeet
Naturist Association Thailand held its first Nude Art Day on Saturday 14 March 2020 at Barefeet Naturist Resort in Bangkok.
The event brought two Thai artists and four international artists doing nude drawings together with members of Naturist Association Thailand to allow the naturists to appreciate nude art while being nude themselves, thereby disrupting the typical situation where nude drawings are appreciated by a dressed audience. And at the same time, the event allowed for the artists to draw the naturists as models either individually or in groups, which is a special challenge for the drawing artists.
When the event started at noon, only around 10 naturists had joined, but during the day a similar number dropped by for the afternoon or early evening.
Naturist Association Thailand was hosting the event at Barefeet Naturist Resort in Bangkok and offered both artists and naturists a snack buffet with crackers, cheese, fruit and free wine and beer. The resort contributed by offered no day-fee charge from 12 to 16.00 when the event was scheduled to end. After a brief welcome by Gregers Moller, Kristin Plumlee explained about how she became first a naturist and today also a model for the artists to draw.
A presentation of slides on the TV showed some of the artists work, and after that, some of the artists showed additional pieces which they had brought with them to show on the day.
Modeling stages where then set up several places: in the garden under the fruit tree, in the corner with the backdrop of a large fern and in the restaurant in front of the TV. While some members were modeling, others were watching the artists working.
Eventually, the day ended as a regular Saturday afternoon at the resort with day fees being charged again and the paid-for bar opened up. The artists and Naturist Association Thailand agreed to repeat the event again in April either Saturday 18 or Sunday 19 April.
Below you may enjoy some of the creations of the day.
