Baan Zen is a wooden Thai style home built in the centre of a tropical garden of red palms, banana trees, frangipani and orchids.
It is hidden away on a tranquil estuary. Just 200 metres walk to either Klong Prao Beach or the local village.
As the name suggests, Baan Zen is the ideal location for couples or a family to unwind, relax and recharge whilst on holiday.
Imagine, tropical ocean breezes scented with coconut gently rocking your hammock where you lay listening to birds calling across the water, a faint tinkle of chimes softly ringing, palm trees rustling as the breezes lift their branches.
The quieter you become, the more you hear.
The book which you have been meaning to get to forever now forgotten as it lays open across your chest, your eyes heavy as your breathing slows and you finally allow sleep to kiss them closed.
Your hammock is gently swaying. You are warm, relaxed and at peace. Nothing else exists. You are where you are meant to be.
You have found your Zen.
Baan Zen is situated in the centre of Koh Chang on a smalll estuary at the south of Klong Prao Beach. A pathway and a wooden bridge lead to the beach, under 200 metres away.
It is a wooden Thai style home built in the centre of a tropical garden of red palms, banana trees, frangipani and orchids.
The two bedroom home is tastefully and comfortably decorated and in keeping with its name. Large shuttered windows open to allow the tropical breezes to blow through the lower floor which is a spacious open area fully equipped with a kitchen, dining room, bedroom and bathroom.
The master bedroom, on the upper floor, is large and inviting. But it is the 60 sq metre, covered deck that is truly the shining jewel of the home.
With a 180 degree view of the blue lagoon and natural surroundings, two hammocks hang from the wooden beams gently calling to you to relax and let your cares disappear with the breeze.

I'll be there when you arrive to welcome you and also give you some ideas about where to eat, drink and shop plus which activities you might enjoy during your stay.
We live all year long on Koh Chang and our guesthouse, Baan Rim Nam, is only 5 minutes by scooter or a 15 minute walk along the beach from Baan Zen. So we will be happy to be of assistance at any time.

There is some good nightlife on the island. But this isn't a place to stay if you want to party. It's very quiet on the river at night and sound travels a long way. Please bear that in mind.
To ensure we keep the wooden floorboards squeaky clean for our guests’ enjoyment, we have a no shoes policy inside the house.
Being a family home, we also have a strict No Smoking policy. The entire property - house, deck and garden - is a No Smoking area.
We'll do a thorough, professional clean between each guest stay but we kindly ask that prior to leaving, you clean and put away any dishes or kitchenware used.
It helps us get through our cleaning process quicker and allows us to keep cleaning costs down for you and future guests.
Accidents sometimes happen and glasses get broken or plates chipped. That's not a problem. But please let us know when they do.
Check-in is at 2pm, and check-out is by 12pm. But if you're arriving slightly earlier or want to hang around a little longer before you leave, that should be fine, but please check with me first.
My name's Ian and as well as being the owner of this lovely holiday home, I'll also be one of your neighbours.
We've lived on Koh Chang since 2003 and our home & guesthouse 'Baan Rim Nam' is located on the Klong Prao estuary.
We also run two great waterfront holiday homes. Both of which have their own unique character :
Baan Moon - a renovated fisherman's house, located about 200 metres from out guesthouse
and Baan Zen - - a wooden house in a lush tropical garden, located on a smaller estuary at the south end of the beach, 15 minutes walk away.
You'll also find me on Tripadvisor where I'm the Destination Expert for Koh Chang. And my website 'iamkohchang' is the main site for independent travellers to Koh Chang.
So, you'll be in good hands during your stay. :-)
Rather than renting from an owner living overseas, we're just a phone call or short canoe paddle or walk away if you need anything during your stay on the island.
I'll be on hand to meet you personally when you arrive and will also provide tips for everything from where to eat and get laundry done to which trips and tours are worth taking.
Hope to see you soon
