Another resort has been added to my recommended list!
Nest Sense Resort is a small, romantic and cozy boutique resort located in Lonely Beach. Their Deluxe Rooms, Seaside Villas or Sea View Pool Villas are very spacious, clean and facing the sea.
Enjoying one of their delicious cocktails at sunset in the infinity edge swimming-pool is just the perfect holidays picture we all have.

We hope you had a nice Christmas celebration with your family or friends. Next weekend we start again. Most of the resorts and restaurants are now preparing their New Year's Gala Dinner. If you haven't booked your table yet, hurry up!
If you can, try to choose one with a beach front, you will be able to enjoy all the fireworks shot from the beach ;)
I can't display all from all restaurants and resorts but here are some examples of Gala Dinners flyers which have been sent to me:
|The Emerald Cove||Peninsula Beach Resort||Koh Chang Paradise resort & Spa|
A new restaurant has opened in Chai Chet, in V.J. Plaza which is the road opposite side of 7-11 supermarket, nearby Coconut Plaza.
Blue Danube restaurant is serving German, Austrian, Hungarian and Thai cuisines. Give them a try!

Tomorrow most of the resorts will have a Christmas dinner and show. And for the ones which don't celebrate Christmas, it's always possible to find a restaurant which is proposing a Christmas menu. Don't stay alone in your bedroom, go outside and have a wonderful evening... it's Christmas!
Last month Harley Moon Hideaway was opening in Bailan. A small but quiet and brand new resort owned by a lovely South-African couple. At this time the swimming-pool was in construction but after a hard work, it's finally ready and it gives a real charm to this resort.
And finally, we wish you a Merry Christmas wherever you are in the world!

They have spent all the low season to replace the wooden floor of their rooms and to improve their resort. They have added a relaxing place with hammock and cushions. The road going to the resort is now smooth, with new concrete and asphalt. Taxis will drive the guests to the resort without complaining anymore about the bad road quality.
And finally, the Cook who is defining her cuisine as "basic" is really modest. I would say that her cuisine is delicious!
This resort is Bhuvarin Resort from Bang Bao!

The new Koh Chang Guide is now online! You can read it here.
Like always, there are a lot of useful information, maps and articles about Koh Chang.
There are still to win 2 flight tickets between Bangkok and Trat. Good luck!

Without any notification, yesterday the national park entry has been increased for divers.
If you are going to dive or to snorkel into the national park area, you will be obliged to pay the entry. Be careful if you are going to any tour boat, even if you don't dive, snorkel or even swim the national park rangers will ask you to pay. Which is not fair at all!
The entries are now:
For divers: 400 thb for foreigners and 240 thb for Thai
For snorkellers: 200 thb for foreigners and 40 thb for Thai
If you are now looking for a professional diving or snorkelling company, I recommend you BB Divers. It's a 5-stars Padi diving center but also the oldest on Koh Chang with an international team and instructors.
Their headquarter is located in Bang Bao but they have small offices almost everywhere on the island. BB Divers is also present on Koh Mak and Koh Kood.

Harley Moon Hideway, a brand new resort in Bailan has just finished to build their beautiful swimming-pool. The swimming-pool is available to their guests and is surrounded by their new and very nice bungalows. This small resort is an ideal place if you are looking for a quiet stay but not far from the animation of Lonely Beach.

There will be lots of fun and it will be possible to taste everything. You are all welcome!!!!!
All in aid of Koh Chang rescue!

Last week Koh Chang has been quiet even if the high season has already started. The weather is very nice, sometimes a bit cloudy but beautiful sunny days and all ending with a unique and colourful sunset.
If you are planning to visit Koh Chang in December or beginning of next year and if you haven't still booked your hotel or resort, hurry up, some places are already fully booked for the coming months.
Last week I have added 2 new places in my recommendation list. Both are completely new.
The first one is a small resort named Harley Moon Hideaway and located in Bailan, between Lonely Beach and Bang Bao.
As you can guess it from the name, the owners are huge fans of bike. They have 5 modern bungalows and their swimming-pool should be finished and ready in less than 2 weeks!
The second place added is The Habitat Hostel with dormitory rooms and located in Chai Chet, a less than 5 minutes walk from Klong Prao beach.
They have 2 rooms with 6 and 4 beds. The big advantage of this hostel is its location, you get everything, the nature, the shopping and dinning area and the beach.
If you don't mind to share your room with other people and looking for a comfortable but cheap and modern room, then this place is made for you!
