Journeys End

journeys end koh chang logoJourneys End

Journey’s End is a friendly English-run homestay and bar down on the shoreside in beautiful and peaceful Chek Bae down in the Southeastern corner of Koh Chang.
Very few people even make it to this part of the island and if you’re a get-away-from-it-all kind of person then you’ll be very happy that they don’t since you’ll have this beautiful bay almost to yourself.

There’s plenty to do here though. The owners have a boat which you can hop onto for snorkelling, fishing and island hopping. Or you can paddle around the bay on one of their kayaks.

The accommodation of offer is in comfy bungalows or garden tent hire is also available.

Watching the sunset from their bar is almost obligatory of course and they have a tasty menu so you definitely won’t go hungry.

thaidaho-vista-koh-mak-logoThaidaho Vista Koh Mak

Thaidaho Vista is a small, intimate yet affordable retreat on Koh Mak—with a stunning Million Dollar View!  Perched atop Koh Mak’s highest hill, Thaidaho Vista may be Koh Mak’s only true “non-smoking” property.  This, combined with the owner’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, makes for a uniquely fun, clean, green, eco and health-friendly hangout for couples, friends and single travelers.

The owners are Kat and Allen.  Kat is Thai and Allen is from Idaho, so together they are Thaidaho.  Thaidaho Vista has only three or four boutique en-suite AirCon rooms with western toilets and hot water showers; and an artsy café/Coffee Shop (Kat is also an artist and musician) that serves real Northern Thai ‘through-the-fence’ coffee and great western breakfasts.  With inside and outside ocean view seating, the café/coffee shop is open to 4pm with homemade western breakfasts and lunches, all the different hot & cold coffee drinks, Thai fruit shakes, Kat’s fresh baked cakes and treats, and a full ‘old fashioned’ ice cream fountain with sundaes, ice cream shakes, banana splits and lots of homemade toppings.  Beer, wine and soft drinks are also available on the patio.

Open seasonally from November through April: room prices vary by season and room, but range from 700 THB per night in the off season to 2500 THB per night for the second level Vista Room during the peak season.  Thaidaho Vista has advanced reservation nightly rates, long-stay (14 days or more) rates and ‘walk-up’ special rates.  You won’t find Thaidaho Vista on any of the big booking websites because Allen & Kat prefer the direct personal approach, so just email them at: Info@Thaidaho.com

Thaidaho Vista has won Trip Advisor’s coveted ‘Certificate of Excellence’ four years in a row; 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016!  You can read all the Trip Advisor reviews hereAnd you can see many fun photos of Thaidaho Vista on their Facebook page here.

Ziva Italian Restaurant is a little oasis of tranquility in the heart of Kai Bae village. Chef Fernanda has a homely and welcoming restaurant with indoor seating and a patio in a meticulously tended garden.
She makes real Italian food because she is a real Italian.

homemade pasta roll filled with ricotta cheese & spinach or petra corsa which is a pasta dish with tuna, sour cream, lemon, garlic and dill. And of course there are delicious desserts ranging from the classic tiramisu to the intriguing nutell salame.

The restaurant is open every evening throughout the high season and welcomes all guests although you might want to reserve a table at busy times.

Salt Beach Bistro

by Dave in Eating & Drinking - Kai Bae, Restaurants and Bars Comments Off on Salt Beach Bistro

Salt Beach Bistro

salt koh chang logoKai Bae’s Salt Beach Bistro is a large stylish place with its own swimming pool and fabulous views up and down the coast. It’s a hidden gem just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of Kai Bae.

Get there by going through Coral Resort – there’s a turnoff about 50 metres from the bridge and Tesco Lotus in the centre of the village and then it’s just a two minute walk to Coral Resort – keep going past the reception area and then you’ll find Salt as you reach the lovely waterfront..

The location alone should give you reason to pay Salt a visit – they are surrounded by water on three sides and their waterfront outdoor area is a perfect place to view the sun setting over the Gulf of Thailand. In the daytime you can lounge by the pool, taking a swim now and then and enjoying the occasional self-indulgent cocktail if you so choose – after all you’re on holiday aren’t you?

 

When you get hungry you can dip into their menu – it’s all MSG free.

Their signature dish is a rack of ribs that is full of fall-off-the-bone juicy tenderness. And the whole menu is peppered with carefully selected and distinctive flavours. Their lamb burger has a tangy tzatziki-like yoghurt dressing. Their beef burger uses the best Angus steak and their freshly grilled salmon fillet is full of tender goodness. There’s lots of stuff that is home-made and unique to Koh Chang like their quinoa salad or their granola with coconut ice cream.

Nothing quenches the thirst like a home-made lemonade or iced-tea. But if you’re looking for something a little stronger then you’ll be pleased with their large range of imported beers and spirits such as Hendrick’s, Tanqueray, Filiers and Bombay Gin, Sake Wine, Sailor Jerry and Havana Club Rum as well as a premium selection of Whiskey and Bourbon.

Inside there is a choice of table or comfy lounge seating, as well as a long bar area. And crowning the whole place is their top-of-the-range Brunswick pool table.

It is a great place for a party and they have an excellent sound system so you’ll be pleased to know that they are available for party bookings. Just contact them below and they will be happy to arrange your special occasion.
