The Gallery at Koh Chang
The Gallery at Koh Chang is a recent and modern hotel located directly in Klong Prao village, on the side of the main road.
Supermarkets, shops, drugstores, bakeries, restaurants, pubs, … everything is very close. Wat Klong Prao (the Buddhist temple) is at a 10-minute walk, less than 2 minutes by scooter.
It will take about 10 minutes to walk to Klong Prao beach and The Gallery’s guests have access to the private beach of “The Emerald Cove” which is its sister’s hotel.
In this hotel, there are 49 rooms divided into Superior and Deluxe Rooms with mountain (roadside) or pool view and Studio Rooms.
Each room has a modern and stylish design and they all include one king-size or two double-size beds, a/c with an individual controller, an LCD TV, a personal safe box, a minibar, a kettle, bathrobes, a bathroom with cold and hot water, and a shower. Each room has a private balcony with a small table and chairs.
The Studio Rooms are twice bigger than the Superior or Deluxe Rooms, they have a living room/kitchen area with a very large sofa, a second LCD TV, a sink, two tables, a microwave oven, a baby cot, and a bathtub-Jacuzzi with a separate shower.
They have an in-room dining service with International food and Asian favourites available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms and inside the hotel area.
The swimming pool is located on the side of the hotel, surrounded by comfortable sunbeds and large umbrellas. For your own privacy, there is a tall fence all around this area.
During the day you can relax at the pool and refresh yourself with drinks and snacks from the Pool Bar which is opened daily from 10.00 am to 11.00 pm.
The Cube Restaurant provides continuous service from 7.00 am to 10.30 pm.
The breakfast buffet is available from 7.00 am to 10.00 am but don’t worry if you prefer to wake up later, their “à la carte” breakfast menu is served all day long.
The restaurant is serving all types of food, including Thai and European but it's specialised in Japanese Cuisine. If you are looking for fine dining, this is a place I recommend to you.
The Japanese food can be ordered from 11.00 am to 10.30 pm.
And even if you don't stay in this hotel, you can stop by and have your lunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed!
There is a Fitness Center inside The Gallery at Koh Chang, looking towards the swimming pool. It's not very big, but enough to spend the extra calories you have gained at the Pool Bar or in the Cube Restaurant :) It’s only for hotel guests and free of charge.
If you really want to relax, then you have to visit the Spa named "@SPA by Emerald Spa". They have a large choice of massages and treatments for women but also for men. Their massage therapists are well trained and will relax you but also relieve your body pains and tensions.
The Gallery at Koh Chang has the only Sky Bar on this island. The Sky Lounge is a nice place to chill in the evening with your friends or family or why not get new friends.
During the high season, there are happenings with famous DJs.
The hotel has also all the facilities to organise private banquets and conferences.
On top of that Level 1 is an entertainment and function venue. During the day, this room is used to hold private meetings which can be booked by the customers and organisers. In the evening, from about 8.00 pm, this room will turn into an entertainment venue with live music and DJs. It's a unique design with those red movie-theatre-style seats.
The Gallery at Koh Chang is more orientated to young and middle-aged people, singles, couples, or families who are not looking for a traditional Thai-style hotel or resort. It's close to the center of the village with everything that you need, and not very far from the beach.
It's a nice place to stay, there is a good atmosphere, you can spend your day at the pool, or easily catch a taxi from the main door and visit the island. And in the evening, the colourful and modern Sky Lounge with its living green wall, covered with plants, is perfect to have fun and meet new people.
