Buddha View

Buddha View Koh Chang

This restaurant and guesthouse is situated over the water on the pier of Bang Bao village to the south of Koh Chang. It’s a lovely location and definitely worth a visit.



Buddha View enjoys a lovely setting since it sits on stilts over the water with excellent views out over Bang Bao Bay – especially at sunset when a cocktail or two is a great plan.

Their Thai menu, as you might imagine, focuses mainly but not exclusively on freshly caught seafood. Their European menu sets it apart from other Bang Bao restaurants and they have a good selection of homemade pasta, pizzas, steaks and burgers.
A nice touch, in a addition to their normal seating, are a couple of floor tables where you can sit Thai style with the added amusement of dangling your feet over the water below – without shoes of course!


They also function as a guesthouse and have just a few well-appointed rooms where you can enjoy the unique experience of sleeping in comfort over the sea.
