Thailand, Koh Chang: Our Experience at the Siam Royal Koh Chang Marina

Hi Noonsite,

Here is some information about the new Koh Chang Marina we wanted to share with you.

We sailed from Tioman to Koh Chang early April and wanted to try the new marina in Koh Chang. We had heard good reports about it from fellow sailors.

We knew there may be an issue with the approach as the marina is located deep in a shallow river. We therefore called the marina and talked to the person in charge, Nam who was most helpful. She explained the entry into the marina and made an appointment with us to escort us into the channel. A boat from the marina came to pick us up and a crew member came on our boat to guide us very precisely into the river. Our draft is about 2m and at mid tide we made it ... just !!!

Once at the marina, the staff helped us secure our boat very professionally and Nam introduced us to the facilities of both the marina and the resort. This is a brand new high end marina. It may take a while for all the facilities to be completed (dry dock, fueling dock, workshops ...) but in due time (very shortly) this marina will be one of the best around. The resort facilities are top class and the 40 meter lap pool should not be missed.

Bike and car rental can be arranged from the marina directly. The marina is located in one of the best spots on the northern part of Koh Chang, near the ferries for the mainland. Restaurants, bars and night life are just 4km away ... not too close and not too far.

The whole experience of this marina has been good and sailors around can leave their boat safely here as there is 24 hour security, the marina is well protected  and the water is mostly fresh water.
