Named after its welcoming English owner, Moley's is a good choice for those seeking an intimate guesthouse experience that doesn't sacrifice comfort and scenery.
The former fisherman's house is set on stilts on the north side of the estuary, a short kayak ride from the beach. If kayaks aren't your thing, try out the motorised floating picnic table (MFPC), which was designed and built by Moley himself and is the first of its kind on Ko Chang, if not all of Thailand. All five rooms were also re-done by the owner, and their pleasantly rustic design includes hardwood floors, comfy beds on chunky handmade wood frames, TVs and spacious bathrooms with quality appliances. The rooms in front have porches perched right over the water, but the one in back faces only the road. Moley also offers an excellent English-Thai restaurant on a cosy wooden deck with tables, floor cushions and views over the estuary. Nearly all of the food is handmade from scratch on site, and the English breakfasts are reported to be the best on the island. The friendly vibes and attention to detail places this guesthouse a step above the pack.
