Koh Chang offers a wide range of accommodations, budget to 5-star - boutique is the newest trend
Filling this list of Top 10 romantic boutique beach hotels on Koh Chang was easy. Surprised? This island is not, after all, one of Thailand’s most famous beach destinations. But years before foreign tourists discovered this large, undeveloped island with natural beaches it had been a favourite among Thai visitors from Bangkok. A few dozen hotels in the 2- and 3-star range were already here by year 2000. But when, in year 2005 the Thai prime minister declared Koh Chang the next tourism target for upgrading to 4- and 5-star status, a mini boom set in and beachfront land prices skyrocketed.
True Beachfront has qualified and mapped about 100 true beachfront accommodations on Koh Chang, and at the current rate of growth that number will continue to grow steadily. While the majority fall in the 3-star range, there are now far more luxury 4-star beachfront hotels than there are budget ones.
Boutique, stylish beachfront resorts are in vogue across Thailand. So many are popping up on islands and beaches that it appears like something of a nation-wide competition, with developers and designers continuously trying to out-do each other with innovation and style. While Koh Samui is the leader in Thailand’s boutique stakes , Koh Chang is tagging along quite nicely, as this list of fine resort illustrates.
A couple of our resort choices were selected not for the classic reasons of architecture and design, but for landscaping and the creation of natural environments through the surrounds of their resorts. One was chosen for the dramatic colours of its landscaping, contrasting its red beach sand for striking effect.
