Since opening a couple of years ago Koonchanaburi Resort on the east coast of Koh Chang has always amazed me. It’s in a lovely, quiet location and accommodation comprises spacious rooms and villas. Really, it should be a well marketed getaway for the well heeled who want to relax away from the masses. Yet is it usually virtually empty by all accounts even during High Season.
It’s low season now, so you wouldn’t expect any resort to be bustling. But you would expect to see some signs of activity. I wandered around for about 15 minutes when I was taking these photos and the only sign of life was a single scooter parked at the bottom of the staris leading to reception. In the distance i could hear someone having a phone conversation. Outside the staff accommodation there was also another scooter and an old pick up truck parked. But other than that, not a single sign of life.
(The resort is officially called ‘Kooncharaburi Resort and Sailing Club’, but to my mind two kayaks and a single Hobie doesnt equate to a sailing club, so I have used the shortened name.)
