Overlooking the estuary after which it’s named, Blue Lagoon feels like a forest village composed of floating footbridges, playgrounds, waterside decks, an open kitchen for cooking classes and bungalows built in many shapes and sizes beneath the tree cover. Throw in a two-minute walk to the beach and you’ve got a wonderful small resort boasting budget value to boot.

Blue Lagoon’s defining feature is a network of decks, pavilions and walkways built on stilts or floating on the midnight-blue canal. The smallest bungalows have concertina doors opening to porches perched above the water, each with a rattan hammock and views of mountains, sea and abundant greenery. Don’t forget your mozzie spray though.

With ice-blue trim and woven bamboo or white wood panels painted on the outer walls, the cheapest bungalows are old but comfy where it counts. You get a mosquito net and thick mattress raised off hardwood floors along with wall-mounted fan, small hot-water bathroom and shelves with a kettle and perhaps some books left behind. Most lagoon-side bungalows are fan-cooled, but you’ll find a few air-con editions with more space, fridge and funky mural work on interior walls.

Those who don’t mind passing on the waterside porches can grab a notably spacious and reasonably priced two-floor cabana (the resort calls them “superior bungalows”) with chairs on an upstairs porch overlooking the trees, and a ground-floor patio sporting a hammock and more chairs. At 1,400 baht the value is tremendous, but there are only three of these so do reserve in advance.

Hammock with a view? Can do.

Other options include family-size houses featuring imaginative wall paintings by a French artist. Those on tighter budgets can rent a tent and use the shared cold-water bathrooms. There’s even a treehouse-style bungalow with walls partially made of elephant dung; and a “tree hut” tent with fan, lamps and mattress perched eight metres above the water.

Blue Lagoon vies with The Spa Koh Chang Resort for the strongest list of activities of any resort on Chang. Taking place daily within sight of the lagoon, the long-running cooking class has a fantastic reputation. The main restaurant serves quality Thai and European food along with fresh coffee, smoothies, beer and WiFi. The staffers we encountered were attentive and friendly.

Simple and clean rooms.

At Blue Lagoon you could also sit back in an herbal steam room; learn how to make coconut oil and herbal products; get a massage; take a yoga class; shoot some billiards; go kayaking; or pick out a book from a communal shelf and just find a hammock. Kids can jump on a trampoline, climb on the playgrounds and dig into a sandbox built into a retired longtail boat, all before creating sandcastles and splashing in the shallow surf found just 100 metres down the canal.

Rooms often fill up in high season and reservations are a good idea—contact Blue Lagoon directly as you won’t find it on booking sites. If you miss out, pop across the canal to Lin Bungalow or head back inland to a little place called Sabaidee Resort, which has functional concrete bungalows for around 1,000 baht. Staying at either, you could still take advantage of Blue Lagoon’s restaurant and activities.

We weren’t given low-season prices at Blue Lagoon.
