Koh Chang has a little something for everyone. There are small and sweet beachside huts and boutique backpacker retreats, all the way through to elegant modern hotels and, much like The Dewa, unique island paradises tucked away on sprawling white sand beaches that have access to some of the finest facilities in all of Thailand.
You can reach Koh Chang easily by travelling to Trat and taking the ferry directly to the island. Once there, you’ll find the picturesque Dewa resort on the luxurious Klong Prao beach, one of the largest on Koh Chang, but quieter than the neighbouring White Sand beach, which is a good place to head if you feel like a night out or if you need to pick up a souvenir or two. Klong Prao is the perfect place to stay if you want solitude, sun soaked vistas and romantic candlelit dinners on the beach under vast starry skies. The resort itself is a luxury Thailand beach holiday option for those in search of something a little bit different, special, and ultimately perfect. You can choose from a deluxe room, a villa or grand villa, each even more beautiful than the last with large sea facing windows, light and clean decor and a luxe aesthetic throughout, and equipped with modern luxuries such as king size beds, deluxe baths, jacuzzis, private balconies, satellite TV and exquisite views over the Gulf of Siam. All of this is wrapped up in The Dewa’s distinctive architectural style, which mixes rustic, tropical and contemporary, to create a breathtaking resort that you’ll find impossible to leave.
You’ll find the facilities at The Dewa, Koh Chang to be truly 5 star. The Spa offers a range of services that includes jet lag cures, eastern and western massage treatments and aromatic body scrubs like coffee, spice, brown sugar and cream treatments. The restaurant serves up an inventive a-la-carte menu and buffet breakfast and overlooks the stylish black outdoor swimming pool while The Dewa’s cafe is bright and modern, and serves coffees, teas and light lunches. If you prefer to take in the ambience from your room, then you can take advantage of the room service, which is available from morning through to the late evening. For couples, we recommend an evening dinner on your room’s balcony overlooking the sparkling South China Sea. When the sun rises, you can book a variety of activities directly at the hotel including snorkelling, fishing, speed boat trips, sea kayaking, elephant trekking and even Thai cooking classes, excellent fun for those wanting to learn more about delicious Thai delicacies such as the spicy Papaya laced Som Tam, or the infamous Pad Kaprao which is a stir fried meat and holy basil dish which is both spicy and delightful.
Klong Prao beach, lined with pineapple trees, backed by dense jungle rich mountains and home to pristine blue waters and a unique river estuary that runs from the awe inspiring Klong Plu waterfall, is perfectly placed on the west side of Koh Chang. From The Dewa resort, you can hire bikes and cars to more easily explore the island, or you can easily walk to nearby attractions like the White Sands strip and the rocky but pretty Kai Bae Beach which was, in fact, one of the first beaches to open its doors to travellers to the island. The Dewa is a sublime resort for couples that want to spend a romantic holiday away from the big crowds in places like Phuket and is on one of the most alluring beaches in all of Thailand.
