Watercolours is located on the Klong Plu river estuary on the west coast of Koh Chang. Just a short walk or canoe paddle to a quiet stretch of Klong Prao beach. An ideal spot to get away from it all and avoid the crowds during high season.
Watercolours is a Dutch owned guesthouse in one of the nicest areas of the island – I’m biased because they are our neighbours. :-) The river estuary is hidden away from the main road and so many visitors to Koh Chang don’t know it exists.
Guests can take a free paddle board, canoe or kayak and head to the beach on the water. Or walk 150 metres through the coconut field to the beach, where’s there’s also a laid back beach restaurant.
All rooms are ensuite and with air-conditioning, LCD TV and a minibar fridge. There are two types of Deluxe room. These are in two buildings. Five are in the main building, which is in the photos and is also where the restaurant and reception areas are located. These rooms all have whitewashed walls and primary coloured beds and furniture.
Plus four rooms which also have a balcony and are in the neighbouring building, which also opens out onto the river. These Deluxe balcony rooms are also equipped with a mini-kitchen area with microwave, hotplate, sink and crockery. Ideal for people who plan of staying longer term and who like to make their own breakfast.
The small restaurant serves a range of healthy breakfast items plus drinks and snacks. For evening meals guests go to one of the nearby riverside or beach restaurants or head into the nearby Klong Prao village.
As the reviews show, Watercolours, offers great value for money in a lovely location. Definitely recommended. The only things to note are that children under 12 years of age aren’t permitted. And it’s a 15 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in the village.
Watercolours is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars based on 120 written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018
