Koh Chang Grand Lagoona Resort

Some photos taken at Koh Chang Grand Lagoona,the largest resort on Koh Chang. It is owned by one of the wealthiest men in Thailand and so is pretty much a rich man’s plaything. It combines the sublime with the ridiculous and beautiful luxury accommodation with budget bungalows and rooms in a ghost ship.

Koh Chang Grand Lagoona is the largest resort on Koh Chang.   It is owned by one of the wealthiest men in Thailand and gives the impression it is pretty much a rich man’s plaything. It combines the sublime with the ridiculous and beautiful luxury accommodation with budget bungalows and rooms in a ghost ship.

Look one way and you’ll be wowed by the renovated rice barges on the lagoon, look the other way and you’ll see rusting heavy machinery and a vast expanse of landfill – devoid of natural plant life.   It is easy to look across to the other side of the canals and imagine what the area looked like prior to being flattened and cleared.

As you’ll see from one of the photos, the resort is for Guests and VIP Visitors only.   Anyone with 150 baht is a VIP.   For your money you get a bicycle, route map, free snack, free drink (including beer) at the beach bar and can use the floating swimming pool.   Near the entrance there is also a nice, little waterfall which is easily accessible by foot.
