Formerly known as Grand Lagoona, Ko Chang’s quirkiest high-end resort was originally the work of a Thai businessman who apparently had a thing for boats.

Much of the accommodation is set in some sort of boat, and even the swimming pool floats on a lagoon. If you can look past the strangeness of it all -- and the fact that the grounds and accommodation haven’t aged all that gracefully -- Aunchaleena’s private beach is a major selling point. We love the beach swings that hang from the slanted trunks of palm trees and are large enough to comfortably seat two. The cheapest rooms are in a massive floating blue-and-white "cruise ship" known as The Galaxy. While we guess there’s something to be said for the novelty of staying in a cruise ship cabin, the rooms are small and uninspiring, with small windows and ageing appliances. Better are the so-called "boat chalets", which have four floating rooms that are a lot more spacious and feel like log cabins. All rooms have TVs, air-con and fridges. A handful of more traditional two-floor beach villas are also available. Aunchaleena is located at the end of a spectacular road that’s treacherous in places; they rent out motorbikes and mountain bikes if you feel like exploring. The resort also owns the pleasant Phrao Talay Waterfall, reachable via a 200-metre hike from the back of the grounds. That’s apparently one reason why a 50 baht fee is charged just to enter the grounds if you’re not a guest. All rates include breakfast.
