Successful Bailan Beach Restaurant and Resort

by Dave in Business Sales, Property & Real Estate, Resort Sales, Restaurant Sales Leave a comment

10 Years Established Restaurant for Sale in Bailan Beach

Price Reduced! 3.5 3.2 Million Baht

This successful Restaurant/Bar/Bungalow Resort business has been a prominent feature of Bailan Beach for over ten years. Now, since the owners will relocate to Europe, it represents an excellent opportunity to purchase a long-running Koh Chang business with a lot of goodwill and repeat trade.

The business is located on a one Rai (1,600 sqm.) plot of land in the centre of Bailan village. The large restaurant and bar occupies 20 metres of main road frontage that has an excellent walk-by trade, in part due to the large and prestigious 150 room Mercure Resort located a minute’s walk away. Behind the restaurant is an extensive garden that stretches back for 80 metres, all with convenient access to a side road. This garden contains a large office, two staff rooms, 3 rental bungalows and two two-bedroom houses, one of which is currently occupied by the owner (both could easily be turned into rental properties for significant extra revenue.)

The restaurant itself has three seating areas, two with dining tables and a bar/coffee shop area with stools and coffee tables. There is also a large upstairs balcony that offers good views of both sea and roadside. And there is also a pool table inside. The kitchen has been used for the businesses popular cooking classes, as well as to cook for restaurant guests, and so it occupies a very large area with a huge working/teaching space in the centre.

The business is for sale as a turnkey business, in other words, ready to walk in and run from day one. The owners are happy to offer a couple of weeks training and handover and share their considerable experience. The business is run under a Thai company that has a foreign work permit, and this business can be transferred with the sale – saving mountains of red tape for the new owners.
The business is held under a long lease at an extremely low rent. The buyer will obtain a new long lease (15 years is possible) from the landowner with the current owner’s assistance at a rate of around 10,000 to 13,000 Baht per month.

So, everything in there that is related to the business is part of the sale – this includes all tables, chairs, beds, furnishings and fixtures and fittings of the restaurant and all the rooms.
There is also an enormous amount of kitchen and cafe equipment, too long to list actually but it includes fridges, freezers and a state of the art coffee machine that cost 150,000 baht new.
There is also a full POS system and a CCTV system with eight cameras.

Serious enquiries only please contact us below for more info or viewings.

Bang Bao Restaurant Sale

by Dave in Business Sales, Property & Real Estate, Restaurant Sales, Shop Sales Leave a comment

Restaurant for Sale in Bang Bao

Bang Bao Pier is one of the busiest and most sought after business locations on Koh Chang and it is very rare that an opportunity to acquire one of these prized over-the-water businesses becomes available.

However, a long-term resident and business owner has decided to relocate overseas and so a large business space in a great location is now for sale.

Let’s be clear from the outset that this is definitely a building and development project. Much, if not all of the wood in this two-story structure needs to be replaced and it’s probably better to think of this as the sale of the right to build a business on an excellent site with extremely heavy walk-by custom.

The property is located roughly half way down the pier and offers a full 12 metres of pier frontage and a huge 35 metres of depth. The total area is roughly 320 square metres.

The property has a Tabien Barn “Blue Book” which denotes approval by local government and it is also registered as a permitted structure. This means that it has the maximum security of ownership that a property over the water can have. And the location is indeed superb with fabulous views and tremendous development opportunities for a restaurant/guesthouse/shops as required.

The price of this property is 3.5 Million Baht. If the buyer wishes to own the property through a Thai company one is also available to take on at no additional cost.

If you’re interested in this excellent opportunity then please contact us using the form below.

Koh Chang Road Plans Are Approved

by Dave in Koh Chang News Leave a comment

New Koh Chang Initiatives Approved

Koh Chang had a visit from Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha yesterday. The result was the approval (in principle) of seven eco-tourism initiatives as follows.

1 – Road around the island
2 – Reservoir in Klong Prao
3 – Garbage separation and treatment plant
4 – Feasibility study for a waste water treatment plant.
5 – Public Pier Project (not sure what that means)
6 – Improve Healthcare on the island
7 – Provide training on the island for tourism staff.

The prospect of building a bridge to the mainland was (fortunately) not raised.
There is also no news on the prospect of extending the new high speed rail link from Bangkok to Rayong as far as Trat – that would be nice though.

The Koh Chang Guide view on all this? – very happy really, there are some much-needed initiatives on there and the result looks very positive indeed for the island.

Here’s the source article at Thai PBS

By the way we’re Thailand’s third biggest island after Koh Phuket and Koh Samui – just saying 😉

But what do you think? It’s a big deal and there will inevitably be environmental and all kinds of other impacts. Please share your thoughts with us below.

A Road Around Koh Chang?

by Dave in Koh Chang News 9 Comments

Will There Finally be a Road Around Koh Chang?

photo: www.77kaoded.com

Could it really be happening this time? Could we finally be getting a road around the island?

Apparently so according to a report on Thai news website www.77kaoded.com. It’s all in Thai of course but here’s our effort to translate and share with you the main points of the article. Here’s the original.

They report that in a recent meeting of Koh Chang government heads the leaders of the 9 local “moo-barn” or areas of Koh Chang have agreed to the plan for building the required 10km of road between Bang Bao and Salak Phet to complete a circuit around Koh Chang.

In the meeting island official, Kamnan Wan Lung Kanornkun described that a partial circuit road that was part-built 10 years ago was abandoned when funds were instead poured into a road-building project to give road access to the Naval Battle Memorial down past Long Beach in the far Southeast of Koh Chang.

Whilst there now seems to be a strong desire from local government to complete the project there are apparently still some issues with regard to obtaining the necessary permissions to actually access the land.
Local landowner Khun Teera Salakphet owns land on the proposed route and has donated it to allow road construction. However, the proposed route also crosses land owned by the Koh Chang National Park and they have yet to approve the development.

But prominent local business owner Lieutenant General Preecha Wanarat has petitioned Thailand National Park Head Office in a letter dated December 19th, 2017 to argue the benefits of the project.

…and that’s where we are at the moment. So nothing is certain and the decision now seems to lie in the hands of the National Park but it seems like some kind of critical mass of support for the project has developed.

The benefits to business and tourism on the island are obvious. The drawbacks also. Native forest will have to be cleared for the road and the sleepy South-Eastern side of the island will likely face rapid development.

So what do you think? Should Koh Chang have a circuit road? Why not let us know below?

3 Rai Chanote Waterfront Land

by Dave in Land Sales, Uncategorized Leave a comment

Chanote Land by the Sea – 6.5M per Rai

This large 4,800 sqm. plot of Chanote title land is located on the East Coast of Koh Chang a couple of kilometres south of the ferry terminals. It is in an attractive location surrounded by rubber trees and has a full 50 metres of waterfront with great views over to the mainland. There are also the footings of an old pier and this is good news because that means it is one of very few locations on the island where you can legally construct a pier. This means the land would be ideal for some form of resort or residential development that incorporates boat access and mooring.

Chanote Land in Klong Son -16M

by Dave in Land Sales Leave a comment

6,400sqm. Chanote Land in a Lovely Location

There is a great deal to commend this large piece of land in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of Klong Son valley. For a start it lies about 2km up the road in one of Koh Chang’s very few inland valleys and is surrounded by jungle hillside and nature on all sides. But this is actually quite a convenient location as well – there are plenty of shops, restaurants and infrastructure in Klong Son village and thebright lights and tourist bustle of White Sand Beach are just a ten minute drive away.

The land area is 4 rai, that’s 6,400 square metres and it is currently covered by rubber trees as well as some magnificent native hardwood trees. There is also a large pond on the site. The land is on a gentle slope. It would be perfect for a large resort or residential development or a private home in a lovely location with a huge private garden.

The land has Thailand’s most secure Chanote land title and is priced very reasonably at 4 million baht per rai.

4 Bed Villa with Private Pool

Price – 9.5 Million Baht

This beautiful 4 bedroom villa is situated in the Siam Royal View Resort between Half Moon Beach and Chang Noi beach.
And priced at 9.5 Million for a four bed house with its own pool it represents excellent value.

Details of the property

On the ground floor you will find the master bedroom with a living room and a fully equipped kitchen.
From the living room you will get into the bedroom. Behind the bedroom you can find your own private bathroom.
On the first floor, that you will reach through a stairway on the outside of the villa, you will find two more bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.
Situated in the back of the building there is another smaller bedroom with a separate bathroom as well.
All bedrooms have a separate air conditioner. The living room is equipped with a ceiling fan.
The three main bedrooms have a room safe and TV. WiFi is available in the entire villa.
Next to the terrace of the ground floor you will find your own private pool.
The villa also provides a roof terrace, which is an ideal place to relax or to have a look at the stunning scenery.

The Location
The Siam Royal View community is one of the most exclusive resorts on Koh Chang.
Right at Chang Noi Beach you will find a restaurant/ clubhouse where you can eat European as well as typical Thai food.
Next to this facility you will find the recreational area where you can just relax at the beach or take a swim in the huge community swimming pool (40 x 8 m).
In the centre of the resort you will find a pitch & putt 9 hole golf course, which can be played from both sides so that it is possible to play a complete round of 18 holes.
The course has been designed to meet the regulations of FIPPA and can be played for official competitions as well. Everything you need for playing golf can be rented in the clubhouse for a small amount of money.
On the edge of the resort you will find a small windsurfing school where you can rent surf boards or kayaks to discover the bay from the seaside. For beginners there also exists the possibility of taking windsurfing lessons.
You will reach the resort following a private street, just 1 minute away from the ferry. At the resort you will find a 24/ 7 security. A car or a scooter can be parked right in front of your house.
Outside the resort there are plenty of recreational opportunities like elephant- or jungle trekking.

So why not come and have a look at it? We’ll be happy to arrange that for you. Just get in touch below.
