[email protected] Resort is a homely resort located in Klong Son village in the northwest of Koh Chang. This is still a local area, one that most visitors just pass through on their way from the ferry to the main beach areas. So the atmosphere is far more local.
The area around Klong Son hasn’t been changed by tourism too much, although there’s a nice beach it is privately owned by the large Siam Royal View development. But for visitors who enjoy the slow life, Klong Son is a very pleasant spot to stay. You won’t find any all night parties or western pubs or beer bars here. Most of the villagers will be asleep by 9pm.
[email protected] Resort is owned by a local family who have built a very pleasant small resort with attentive, helpful staff. the rooms have all the amenities you’ll need, including a fridge, aircon and cable TV. They’re bright and simply furnished. There’s one larger Family bungalow with one bedroom which has two Queen size beds.
On the exterior there’s also some fun, graffiti style artwork. Resort facilities include an excellent coffee shop that also serves meals and a good size swimming pool.
White Sand beach is only a short drive away. But it lies on the other side of a steep hill. So it’s not really feasible to walk there, unless you are super fit or enjoy sweating profusely. Most guests will rent a scooter to get around. Staff can arrange that for you figure on 200 to 250 Baht / 24 hours for an automatic scooter.
However, it is also possible to take a pick up truck taxi, but if you get one from the resort expect to pay around 100 Baht/person. And coming back late at night the price will easily be double that, probably more.
[email protected] Resort offers everything you need to enjoy your time on the island. It’s ideal for couples / singles who can ride a scooter and want to see the island but avoid staying anywhere that’s too touristy. If you’re the type of traveller that prefers to do things different from the masses and also likes to support small local shops, restaurants and businesses then [email protected] might be for you.
Also in Klong Son, Evergreen Koh Chang Resort is another garden resort that gets great reviews from guests and is a similar price.
