About Watercolours

Watercolours is a boutique resort located on the beautiful tropical island Koh Chang which we took over from a Thai family. The resort itself was originally build in 2009 and after several months of renovation we opened it up again in 2017.

Our resort is a bit of a hidden treasure on the river just behind the beach. Still it's right in the middle of the west coast where all the beaches, restaurants, shops and bars are. But because we are somewhat off the beaten track, you are away from traffic and party music. On the river where Watercolours is located it's normally very quiet and tranquil. Especially in the morning and late afternoon you can enjoy the sounds of the birds flying around the river and in the mangroves.     

We are not a five star hotel and we're not trying to be one either! We are a boutique resort where we want you to feel comfortable and welcome. We live in the back of the resort, and have a small living area that we share with our dogs. So you're not only staying at a boutique resort, it's also our home! That means we will work hard to make sure you will enjoy your stay with us, but don't always do things as formal as a five star hotel would do. For instance, we love to sit down with our guests now and then and have a chat about what's going on in their life.  

We have pets at our resort. We have a dog named Nai that we took as a stray dog from Sri Lanka. In 2018 Nai felt hopelessly in love with a local stray dog that swam across the river for her. Soon that became a daily routine and before we knew it we had two dogs living at our place. Our other dog is named Tom.

Our dogs are true friends of the guests staying with us and loved to coddle and play. But if dogs is not your thing we can easily keep them in the back. 

We hope to see you soon!

Location

Watercolours is located halfway the west coast of the island Koh Chang. Situated at the end of the river and just 150 meter from Klong Prao Beach, a beautiful and large stretch of sand with just a few resorts and beach restaurants.

Klong Prao Beach is a moon shaped bay which is split in two by the Klong Prao river estuary. The sea is ideal for swimming as the flat sandy bottom gently becomes deeper and a handful of uninhabited islands just of the coast break the bigger waves that role in.     

Our resort is just off the main road and a 15 minute walk from Klong Prao village, which has a good variety of shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and ATM’s. To get to Watercolours you go down a side road from the main road which leads to a few resorts and beach restaurants. The side road is very low on traffic and missed by most visitor of the island, unless you know where you’re going. This makes it an ideal and tranquil spot on the island.

Restaurant and Bar

Restaurant

At Watercolours we offer you a tasteful breakfast menu with a good variety of fresh and healthy choices to start your day with! On our breakfast menu you will find a wide selection of (dark) bread, eggs, yogurts and fresh fruits. We also offer all sorts of fresh fruit juices and smoothies and of course a good cup of coffee and tea!

Our breakfast is not included in our room prices. We try to make a healthy and good quality breakfast for a reasonable price, instead of offering a low cost included breakfast. We don't want you to force our breakfast menu, so we are more than happy to advice you about the many breakfast options in the surroundings of our resort. What ever makes you happy! 

We serve breakfast from 7:00 AM until 10:00 AM. And if you have a early pick up we can even fix you a breakfast before 7:00 AM.

We don't have a lunch- or diner menu at our resort. For diner or lunch there are several options for good value local Thai or Western food within a short walking distance of our resort, or we can phone the free boat service of 'Iyara' or 'Phu Talay' restaurant to pick you up at our waterfront deck to have diner at one of these restaurants on the opposite side of the river. Especially when it happens to rain at the time of diner this is a good option to make it to the restaurant without getting wet. After you have finished your diner the boat driver will drop you off on our deck again. 


We are more then happy to advice you about different restaurants on the island and even can call you a taxi to pick you up at our resort.  

 
Bar

We are more then happy to serve you all day with hot- and cold drinks from our menu. We are around most of the time, but there can be moments when we have to go out to do some shopping or other business. Therefor we have a fridge in the lobby where you can always get a cold drink. We simply collect the empty bottles later and add this to your bill.  

Laundry

At Watercolours we offer a laundry service for only 40 Bath per kilo. We work with a good laundry service that won't mix up your clothes. Your laundry will be returned to your room neatly folded, sealed and with a fresh smell within 24 hours.
