Koh Chang has been a Gulf of Thailand favourite for years with its steep twisting roads, treks through the jungle to find waterfalls, beach and party vibes to suit most tastes. Being lovers of luxury, peace and quiet and good vegan food we headed to Mercure Koh Chang Hideaway for our Koh Chang experience. We certainly didn’t regret it.
Breezy open areas, calming pools and a relaxed atmosphere
As soon as you arrive at Mercure Koh Change Hideaway you can get a sense of the relaxed atmosphere. The open walkways with ornamental pools on either side, neutral colour tones, the combination of stone pillars, lush plants and natural wood all produce a sense of well being that gets you in the mood to relax straight away.
A peaceful beach getaway with an awesome pool too
Koh Chang is a huge island and each beach area has its own distinct character. Bailan Beach in the South of the island is known for its laid back vibes and Mercure Koh Chang Hideaway occupies the prime position in this beautiful quiet bay. You won’t find noisy beach parties here, just a few restaurants, shops and lots of peace and quiet.
Laze on the beach on one of the complementary sun loungers, swim in the sea or take a dip in the huge freeform pool that is a central feature of the resort. Either way, this is a great place to clock up some serious beach and pool time underneath the blazing Thai sunshine.
Ocean views, comfortable rooms at Mercure Koh Chang Hideaway
We loved our Deluxe Ocean View Room which, as the name suggests, had stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand. The room was spacious with an oriental style low platform bed; we had all the amenities we might need during our stay including hairdryer, safe, extra towels for the beach and a good sized flat screen TV with numerous international channels. There was also a walk in shower and a giant heart shaped bath tub just to add a little more luxury.
