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. Even in high season you will only see a couple of dozen people out on the sand. Just one of the reasons this is one of the best resorts on Koh Chang.
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 15 minutes walk to the village and nearest 7-eleven.
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 villas near the beach all have either pool access or a private pool. This is in addition to the large beachfront pool. This pool can get busy during the high season, so if you want some privacy the pool villas might be worth splashing out on.
In 2018 Santhiya Tree Resort opened a new riverside hotel block. This is a towering four floor structure that is clad in teak wood – giving the appearance of a wooden palace. Despite the size there are only an additional 28 rooms. However each room, also decked in teak from floor to ceiling, has a private plunge pool with sunrise view of the jungle. On the ground floor is a 40 metre long lap pool and restaurant.
Highly recommended if you enjoy a bit of luxury. But if it’s too remote try The Dewa or Emerald Cove at the busier southern end of Klong Prao beach.

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.
