And for your total well-being

Some hotels and resorts also feature a fitness centre, sauna, steam and Jacuzzi which guests can use for free of charge. Need to shed some sweat? A small, independent gym can also be found in the Klong Prao Beach area. Alternatively, beach sports and activities like swimming, kayaking, canoeing, Frisbee, volleyball, football and jogging are also a fun way to exercise.

Most convenient shops and 7 Eleven normally carry basic medication like Tylenol and tiger balms. Proper drug stores with on-duty physician can be found in major beaches. Each beach has its own clinic, especially in ‘moo ban’ (villages). Major beaches like White Sand, Klong Prao, Kai Bae and Lonely also have a branch of small hospital and a dental clinic (located in Klong Prao Beach) available.

Although notorious for vicious mosquitoes, Koh Chang is generally malaria safe. However, in order to avoid the more prevalent dengue fever, make sure to wear long sleeved shirts and trousers in the evening if you plan to go out and about. Unless you’re staying in a thatch-roofed hut, mosquitoes are not a problem as most hotels and resorts’ rooms are usually void of them. However, for extra protection, insect repellent spray or lotion is recommended, especially for young children.

Independent spa facility

Bodiwork Spa, the island’s most notable independent spa facility is located in three different beaches, White Sand Beach (at Koh Chang Kacha Resort & Spa), Klong Prao Beach (VJ Plaza) and Kai Bae Beach. Operated by veteran professionals, not only does Bodiwork Spa feature an extensive menu of quality treatments and services using the finest natural ingredients, it also offers well-established training programs and courses for spa therapists, owners as well as those who are interested.

The training includes all aspects of spa treatments, products, services and management. Some of the services include Holistic Treatment, Aroma Treatment, Crystal Spa Treatment, Aesthetic Treatment and Indulgent Programs, to mention but a few.

The local touch

For affordable massage services, many beachside huts – run by the locals – offer a traditional Thai massage as well as foot massage (prices range from 200 to 400 baht per person and per hour). Although the services may not be on par with those offered at the leading hotels and resorts, the beachside location of these massage huts and the friendly local touch make up for it.

Nothing is more relaxing than having your body pampered while listening to the sound of the waves lapping against the shore. Barbers and salons by the locals are also on offer if you need dying, braiding, trimming, cutting or even shaving.
