Baan Rim Nam is a five room guesthouse on the Klong Prao river estuary. We're 300 metres canoe paddle or 100 metres walk from the beach. For the past 3 years we've been rated as one of the 'Top 25 B&Bs and Inns in Thailand' by Tripadvisor

The space

Stay in our renovated fisherman's houses built on the mangrove lined bank of the Klong Prao river estuary. The only place of it's type on the west coast of Koh Chang.

Only 300 metres canoe paddle or 150 metres walk - through the coconut field- to the quietest stretch of beach on the west coast of Koh Chang. No loud bars or traffic noise - guaranteed.

We have 5 ensuite, AC rooms in two adjacent stilt houses. Rooms are around 1,100 Baht per night in High Season.

Access is by boat or along an 80 metre long wooden walkway through the mangroves.

This is what Lonely Planet had to say: "Run by some of the most helpful people on Koh Chang, this converted fisherman’s house turned guesthouse teeters over the river in the mangroves. Free kayaks let you explore up river or down to the beach (under 5 minutes) and offshore islands. Rooms are spotless and the estuary keeps the whole place relatively cool.”

“Peaceful, scenic and unusual, this converted fishing family’s house is built on stilts over the wide, attractive khlong at the end of a walkway through the mangroves. Run by the British author of the best Ko Chang website it has just three comfortable aircon bedrooms with free wifi plus a big deck for soaking up the khlongside village but no restaurant. You can borrow kayaks and it’s a couple of minutes walk to the beach.” Rough Guide to Thailand’s Islands and Beaches 2009, page 215

And from (URL HIDDEN) “This out-of-the-way guesthouse is set in one of the most gorgeous spots on the island.”

So, if you want a vacation on Koh Chang but don't want to feel like a tourist and want something with a bit more charm than just another bungalow on a beach . . . you know where to stay.

Interaction with guests

I'm usually around and will be happy to answer any questions you have and give you tips on what to see and do and where to eat during your time on the island.

Ian was incredibly helpful in all regards during our stay in koh Chang. He had a list of nearby restaurants and massage parlors for us on our arrival, making it a cinch to figure out where to go. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. You are tucked back a little bit from the main road which means it is a little quieter in the evenings but just a short walk to the main road if you want a drink or a bite to eat. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the lovely Baan Rim Nam guesthouse for 11 days and it was our first time at the lovely Ko Chang. It is only 3 minutes to the beach and a really good beach restaurant "Palm Beach". And it is about 1.5 km up to the main street. The entire road has lighting. Ian is a great host. He helps you with everything, just ask. And his staff are very nice and helpful. Next time I visit Ko Chang, I will definitely be staying here at Ian's guesthouse again. Best Regards, Sweden

Ian was an excellent host. He really made the effort to make sure we felt welcome at his guest house. Also, if you want to know anything about the island (where to eat, how to get to around, etc.), he is the man to ask. The guest house was perfect, even better than we were expecting. The rooms were immaculate, and the large undercover deck overlooking for river is the perfect spot to relax. The guest house is located down a quiet road, about 15 minutes walk to the main road (the guest house has scooters for hire, which are the ideal way to get around the island). Noise from traffic is non-existent apart from the occasional small boat travelling down the river. The beautiful Klong Prao beach is very close, no more than 3 minutes walking or 10 minutes using one of the kayaks from the guest house. We loved our stay here, and if we come back to Koh Chang in the future we will definitely be returning to Ian's guest house.
