siam royal view koh changSiam Royal Bay Koh Chang/The Peninsula Beach Resort

Siam Royal Bay is a community and destination that is located in Klong Son on Koh Chang in one of the island’s most pristine and attractive spots. The spectacular backdrop to the village is protected national forest and towering lush green hills – truly the epitome of a tropical paradise.

A Yacht Marina is part of the Development, which provides state of the art mooring for up to 75 boats up to 30 metres in length, plus even more dry berths for smaller vessels.
Further, the Development also features the first and only Golf Course (9 Hole, Par 3) on the island, several restaurants, large infinity-edge swimming pools and an abundance of water sports equipment. The Development offers luxurious Villas or Condos, and Marina Berths, either for Sale or for Vacations Rental.


Renting a luxury fully appointed beach villa might at first sound like it is out of your price range.

But think again. especially if you are travelling with your family you’ll probably find their prices are competitive with the alternative of booking two or more resort rooms. And what you get for your money often includes a private pool and degree of comfort and luxury that you’ll be very pleased indeed with.

Additionally, Siam Royal View also rents apartments that are equally luxurious and also enjoy use of all of the community facilities.

Peninsula Beach Resort
The Peninsula Beach Resort offers beachside hotel accommodation in real luxury and of course enjoys the use of all of the Siam Royal Bay community facilities. It’s a great new option to enjoy the location from the comfort of a hotel.

NEW Marina Sands Resort
This new resort is located right beside the Marina in two small blocks of extensive apartments with a large pool and recreational area in between. It is moments from the beaches and the mountain views are fabulous.

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.

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.
