Koh Chang Part 2

rain 27 °C

Koh Chang remained very much undeveloped in terms of commercial establishments unlike its other counterparts over in Andaman Sea. On this part of Gulf of Siam, bulk of Koh Chang still maintained its natural surroundings without condominiums or holiday homes or villas developments. As such, Koh Chang offers much quieter island vacation suitable for those who are looking for calmness, tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. To pamper oneself in Koh Chang there are several accommodations that meet the above criteria, which include the Chang Buri Resort & Spa located at the White Sand Beach. Staying at this resort during my trip to Koh Chang was a wonderful experience and truly brought a nice and unforgettable short holiday retreat. Chang Buri Resort & Spa is divided into 2 parts along the main road of White Sand Beach. One part of the resort, which is on the hillside, consists of a 3 storey building complete with multiple rooms on each of the floor, a spa and a massage facility, frontage shops, including convenient store and cafe, a small pool and a restaurant. There is also a garden area fitted with Thai cottages (sala) for guests who seek to relax with family or friends while staying at Chang Buri Resort & Spa. Over at the opposite of the main road on the White Sand Beach,Chang Buri Resort's sea view unit consists of private villas and a large swimming pool which overlooks the great White Sand Beach and the ocean. This is in fact the most interesting and unique feature of Chang Buri Resort. Swimming at the pool also allow one to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean, which is just amazing and provide one with the most relaxing experience badly needed after a busy day. There is a canal like pool along the private villas which connects to the main pool. Other than swimming, you can also rest on the beach seat provided which also allows guests to enjoy the view of the ocean.

One of the iconic f & b outlet in Koh Chang would be the Paddy's Palms in my point of view which adds the foreign touch to this still is a quiet island retreat. This is the place to be to catch up with sports program in particular the English Premier League games over the weekend. Paddy's Palm's is of course an irish bar & restaurant and when you are here, its definitely not to missed its range of the creamy beers such as the Guiness Stout draft. There are also selection of snacks that would be best to go together with the beers including the chips and mini chicken drumsticks.
