 Santhiya Tree Koh Chang Resort

(This resort was known as Panviman Resort up until September 2016.)

Santhiya Tree Koh Chang Resort is located in the centre of Klong Prao beach.   This is one of the quietest areas of beach on the west coast of Koh Chang.   Even in high season you will only see a couple of dozen people out of the beach within a few hundred metres of the resort.

There are no pushy beach vendors and  no rows of deckchairs on the sand.   Just a couple of small beach massage places, a couple of low key restaurants and couple of  laid back backpacker bungalow huts nearby, where you can also get sensibly priced food and drinks.

It’s a good spot to get away from it all.   The negatives are that the design of the resort maybe a bit too  over the top ‘mock temple’ for some.   And that the quiet location means that it is a bit of a trek to get to the local shops.

Figure on a 15 minute walk to the main road.   However, the hotel does have a free shuttle service but this doesn’t run all day, only at selected times. And finally, the room rates are amongst the highest on the island.

The new pool access rooms allow you to cool off right outside your room and are worth paying a premium for as the main pool area can get crowded during High Season.

If a mid-size, 50 room resort in a quiet spot is paramount then go for it, you’ll get a good 4 star standard of service and room on a long quiet stretch of beach.

As of late 2017 a new riverside hotel block is under construction.  Noise isn’t an issue but when it is completed it will double the capacity of the resort. The highlight of the new block will be  40 metre long pool looking down over the river and to the mountains inland.

  • I have just booked 18 days at the Panviman via a german website , charged in EUR.

    On average we are paying THB 3,650 per night, so checking out several agencies/websites can save you almost 50% of the price the hotel itself charges.
