Parama Koh Chang

Parama Koh Chang Resort

Parama Koh Chang is a welcome addition to the ranks of Koh Chang’s 4 star hotels.  It’s a boutique resort, with only 19 rooms and suites in the main resort.  However there are additional, cheaper rooms, at a nearby annex. 

47 reviews
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)

A unique aspect, and the main highlight, of Parama Koh Chang is the seawater aquarium which surrounds the resort, here you can watch, or snorkel with, turtles and variety of tropical fish right outside your room.

The resort is located in Salakphet Bay in the quiet south-east of the island.  Whilst the resort itself isn’t on the beach, it does have a private island, a short (free) boat ride away where guests can relax on a pristine white sand beach with panoramic views of the bay.  

The obvious downside – for many potential guests – will be the remoteness.  There’s not much within walking distance other than a few small Thai style resorts; a minimart and couple of local restaurants.  And no beach at the resort itself, you have to take a boat.  But a good choice if you can ride a scooter, in order to get out and see the surrounding area. Or if you simply want a quiet spot, great views and very few tourists.

Note that the inexpensive standard rooms are located about 200 metres from the main resort.  In 2016, Parama took over a nearby resort, remodelled it and now use it as a cheaper option for guests.

Exceptional 😀 - The staff are extremely nice and professional
I am already planning my next trip. I loved it 😀 - staff were fabulous. views were beautiful and food was excellent 😞 - the jacuzzi bath has stale water in the pumps and smelled horrible. space beside bed on right hand side was too narrow to actually walk up and cause me to bruise my leg.
Great journey 😀 - Good location Great staff Good food 😞 - No
Bad 😞 - The room was badly infested with mosquitoes. INstead of staying for 2 weeks, I left after 1 week!
Everything was too far!
Superb 😀 - the landscape is a beauty, the staff is extraordinary friendly and was of great help at any time. if you are looking for a quite place with a relaxed atmosphere, this is the one to go to. scooter rental available, Kajaks can be used for free, there is also a boat shuttle to a nice abandoned island nearby. last but not least: take your time and feed some turtles or use the gym and sauna
😞 - Place is a little dislocated from the center of the island…so scooter is recommended. this remote situation is not a con point per se since we enjoyed it very much.
One of the best hotels in Thailand 😀 - Staff are extremely helpful and friendly, one of the best hotels in Thailand, would recommend to anyone.
😞 - Nothing
