EDITOR’S INDEPENDENT REVIEW: The Emerald Cove Koh Chang Hotel is the largest beachfront resort hotel on Klong Prao Beach in terms of room numbers, and the only one aiming at 5-star facilities and services. It is indeed modern and luxurious, while offering an unprecedented range of services. As the name suggests, this is more like a beach hotel than typical Thai resort, with the great majority of rooms in low-rise hotel blocks.

Emerald Cove provides a wide beachfront area shaded by palms and umbrellas where guests spend much of their day relaxing, reading and sleeping. During high tide (which lasts all day from Nov-March) the beach is almost submerged, with the water lapping up around the sun lounges. Swimming is good at this time, but difficult at low tide (all day from April – September). The largest of the resort’s 3 swimming pools is 50 metres, the biggest on this beach, and set just behind the sun lounge area. One pool is dedicated for small children.

The hotel has five, 3-storey hotel blocks surrounding a central courtyard with the pools and lots of green lawns. Rooms come in five types, including suites, with all enjoying views of either the beach and ocean or mountain from the back side. All have balconies. Interiors have wooden finishes and touches of Thai décor, some with polished, wood-panel floors. The styling is quite simple and modern, with 5-star facilities.

Emerald Cove offers more dining outlets than any other resort on this beach, with four restaurants serving Thai, Italian and international cuisines in a variety of locations and atmospheres. Sunset Dining is the obligatory beach-side restaurant, called that due to the daily spectacle that it witnesses through the palm trees. The Just Thai restaurant claims to serve Thai dishes the way Thais eat them – but perhaps they have reduced the chili? The Cove Terrace is the breakfast venue down by the swimming pools and gardens, while Sassi serves up that Italian cuisine. The hotel also boasts two bars, with Poolside Bar offering great beach and sunset viewing while the interior Macao Lounge offers some of the little live music available on this island.

Naturally, the resort has a full-service spa offering massage in various forms, plus facials, beauty and body treatments.

Situated near the bottom end of Klong Prao Beach, the location of Emerald Cove gives guests easy walking access to the small commercial village behind, where many small restaurants, shops, convenience stores and ATMs cluster along the main road. This southern part of the beach is quite attractive with coconut palms swaying over the sand and other big trees providing shade and a green atmosphere, though naturally it has more visitors due to the cluster of resorts here.

Koh Chang is one of Thailand’s hidden secrets that has become much easier to visit. 315 kilometres south east of Bangkok, it is only an hour’s flight from Bangkok, thanks to the airport in Trat province. The Emerald Cove Koh Chang is located on the secluded Klong Prao Beach with kilometres of white sand.
