Journey’s End is a laid back English-run homestay in a garden by the sea in the south east of Koh Chang. It’s located in the hamlet of Jek Bae (Chek Bae) on the eastern side of Salakphet Bay. It’s not an area than many visitors to Koh Chang discover and even fewer actually stay in. But if you want to escape from the crowds and really get away from it all then it’s an idyllic spot.
Journey’s End has six fan and air-conditioned bungalows and is run by Englishwoman, Nicky and her staff who have all been with her for a couple of years. There’s a restaurant and bar by the sea and they serve simple Thai and European fare. And if you’re on a very tight budget tent hire is also available and you can camp in the garden.
Many guests head to Journey’s End in order to escape and unwind from the stresses of modern life and work in particular. There’s a holistic atmosphere but without the new age, hippy stuff. The sounds of nature, a good book, some chilled music, friendly conversation and maybe a little meditation make for an ideal way to rejuvenate your mind and body. And no stay is complete without enjoying a cold beer and watching the sun go down over the bay and mountains in the centre of the island.
Nicky also runs regular boat trips for snorkelling, fishing and island hopping. Trips can be arranged for people who aren’t staying at Journey’s End and who either want to hire the boat privately or join a trip. Plus kayaks are available and scooter or car hire can easily be arranged.
Definitely recommended if you want to chill out for a few days.
