harley moon hideaway koh changHarley Moon hideaway is a new, modern utopia, nestled in the heart of the local Thai culture. The unique hideaway experience draws strongly on its name as it caters to those searching for a home away from home by offering guests the exclusive experience of choosing between 7 comfortable and spacious chalets all overlooking the tranquil gardens and trademark fiery red pool that serves to provide guests with the ideal escape from the hot sun.

Harleymoon is found in the centre of Koh Changs peaceful Bailan village which is a prime location for tourists to enjoy the unique culture.
