Set in a restored fisherman’s house that’s perched directly over the estuary, this intimate five-room guesthouse is one of the best on the island.

Photo of Baan Rim Nam
Guests enter through a wooden walkway that stands on stilts over a shady cluster of mangroves and is lined with hanging orchids. The walkway ends at a spacious roofed wooden deck with tables, benches, hammocks and a book exchange, which merges into a second deck that’s open to the sun and has a few lounge chairs. It’s a great place to sit back, watch the boats slide by and play with the house’s affectionate and well-cared-for golden retriever, Santa. Kayaks are available for the quick paddle to the beach, which can also be reached via a 150-metre-long path through the coconut trees. Rooms are simple but relatively spacious and tastefully done with bamboo features, glass concertina doors and comfortable beds. Each comes with air-con and hot water shower, and some have outdoor sitting areas. Baan Rim Nam’s welcoming English/Thai owners are another big selling point. Ian is something of a celebrity on Ko Chang thanks to his outstanding (and detailed) website with countless tips for getting the most out of the island, but in person he’s simply a nice guy who enjoys casually chatting with guests and passers-by. Reservations are essential in high season. Not ideal for small children (or clumsy drinkers) as railings are minimal in places. (Disclosure: We know the owner of this place.)
