The apartment is in Tranquility Bay Residence on the south coast of Koh Chang. This is a quiet location, away from the busier beaches on the west coast. However, everything you need is within walking distance.
The beautiful Klong Kloi beach is under 10 minutes walk away. Here you will find lively beach restaurants and can also rent a kayak or Stand Up paddleboard. Nearby the smaller, Hat Sai Noi, is a little hideaway, with a handful of small beach restaurants which are open from early morning until late evening. Bangbao village, also 10 minutes walk, is the departure point for snorkelling and dive trips to the nearby islands. It’s also home to several good seafood restaurants plus numerous shops. You’ll also find facilities such as currency exchange and ATMs and a 7-eleven mini-mart here.
Whilst there are longer and busier beaches on the west coast of the island. The views, to the south of Koh Chang towards the outlying islands, are infinitely better.

Arrival & Orientation
I’ll be here to meet you and answer any questions that you have when you arrive. I’ll also provide a couple of maps of the island and nearby restaurants and other places of interest.
There are various activities to keep you occupied when you aren’t sunning yourself. These can be booked at the Tranquility Bay Residence front desk or any tour agent nearby. There’s everything from Jungle trekking;, Scuba Diving & Snorkelling; Paddle boarding; Kayaking; Cooking classes; Island tours etc. If you want to explore the island properly, then rent a scooter or car and head off to the quieter east of the island to see local life and peaceful fishing villages.
The Apartment will be cleaned to a high standard prior to your arrival. And again when you leave. There is no additional charge for this, it is included in the rental price.
There is such a thing and you’ll find it in the fridge when you arrive. As you’ll probably have been travelling all day to get here it’s nice to sit down, put your feet up and get a cold drink when you arrive at your home away from home. You’ll find a selection of soft drinks and beer in the fridge, plus drinking water. They’ll be a fruit bowl and some snacks too. And to ensure you don’t go hungry the next morning, there’s some simple breakfast items – fresh coffee, bread, milk and teabags etc provided for you too. Help yourself.
