Mae Bua Kam means "Golden Lotus".

At more than 70 years of age, Mae Bua Kams owner realized it was time for her to retire. He contacted Lek to ask if she could live out her golden years in the relaxing atmosphere of the Park. Lek does not have to buy her or pay a monthly lease fee; the owner has willingly given her freedom for the rest of her days.
