Parama Koh Chang,
Koh Chang Island
Thailand, East Coast and Islands
Info : Parama Koh Chang
Opened in 2013, Parama is a tranquil resort set on the remote south east coast of Koh Chang. The 19 rooms and suites look out towards the central swimming pool and beautiful fish pond. All rooms have balconies and modern amenities such as ipod docks and espresso machines.
One of the most unique aspects of Parama is the access to a private desert island which lies just in front of the resort. It takes 5 minutes to get to the private island on a small boat which you can beckon as and when you please. The island offers white sand and great swimming. Another novel aspect of the resort is the beautiful fish pond which is large enough for guests to snorkel in and observe fish and turtles.
Dining is either Thai or western style and can be enjoyed in the main restaurant or at various private and romantic outdoor locations. As one would expect, the resort has a relaxing wellness spa and a fitness centre. Various activities are available for guests such as kayaking, cooking classes and snorkelling trips.
We think this hotel will suit anyone looking for a quiet quality island retreat after a busy tour, especially those who like access to good swimming.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
I started doing a search on the net for specialists and came across Experience Travel Group. I liked a lot what I saw on their website so started an online dialogue with one of their operators. She quickly realised what we are looking for and got one of her colleges who was a specialist in this area. A chap called David Gookey called me back to chat about what we wanted. We gave David a brief for our budget and the type of things that we wanted to do and he did the rest. All I can say is he put together the perfect holiday, sorted out the best tours and some incredible hotels. All guides, flights, transport and transfers taken care of. If you're reading this David thank you once again.
