Hi '5151'. It does feel like the United Nations here sometimes. The only difference being that somehow people always manage to get on well together and make new friends. Thanks for returning to stay with us again and hope to see you in the coming years .

We booked here at the last minute on impulse having spent a couple of days here in November 2012. We were not disappointed. We will return here every time we go to Koh Chang and have recommended it to all our family and friends too. Ian accomodated us at the last minute and even though we had to change rooms...

Hi annoee59 - thanks for your review of our guesthouse and also for other reviews of places on Koh Chang. We now have quite a few guests who also stay at The Souk and Saffron on the Sea. Proof that although Koh Chang is getting busier it's still possible to find small bungalow resorts or guesthouses and avoid the package...

My wife and I stayed at Ians guest house for seven days on our honeymoon. I have to say any of the amazing pictures you see on this site do not do this place justice. Words cant describe the calmness of this place, it is one of the most peacfull and relaxing places I have stayed at in Thailand. We...

A bungalow by the sea is so overrated! Open sea gets boring after a while so come to a place by a river and you have so much more to see and experience! After months of planning and dreaming to get away from the winter our family came to Koh Chang in February and one of the obvious choices was...

Thanks AnniG_12 for your thoughts not just on our guesthouse but on the area nearby and places where our guests tend to hang out and eat. Many thanks too for sharing the photos - it's always helpful for new guests to see how guests photos match up with those provided by owners. Hope to see you & your family on...

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. It's a beautiful location on the river and has so much charm and character. You can easily paddle up the river to see elephants being bathed, or down to the gorgeous beach. The rooms are simple but are really nicely decorated and have A/C and a good shower. The...

When we arrived at Koh Chang we were dropped off far from Baan Rim Nam. After walking awhile in the heat with our packs, we called Ian the owner and he came and picked us up. The location is something from a dream. From the boardwalk to get to the rooms, to the wicker hammocks and Santa the dog, this...

Ian_on_Koh_Chang, Owner at Baan Rim Nam, responded to this review

Hi 'emgott' thanks for taking the time to review our place and for being one of the few people who have reviewed it after staying outside the main High Season. Most of our reviews come from people staying between November - April, when (more often than not) the sun is shining and the sky is blue. In May the weather...

We first stayed here last year and were delighted with our decision. The location is idylic and if like us hiring motorbikes are not your thing there is still plenty of things in easy walking distance. This time we brought 5 friends with us and everyone agreed it was an "experience" to stay at such a unique location and one...

Thanks 'MariaandMichael' and for introducing your friends to the Baan Rim Nam "experience" which I hope was pleasurable for them too. :-) No doubt I will see you again in the not too distant future either here or on Koh Mak.

Ian_on_Koh_Chang, Owner at Baan Rim Nam, responded to this review

Thanks ChuckyJellie. It was good to see you again. Fortunately, nothing changes too much round our way and (local fairs permitting) we're still in one of the quietest spots on the island. Long may that continue. Mam says thanks for thinking of her when you were enjoying your prawns. She'll do the same next time she's got a kilo of...

Just arrived back from a 3 week stay at Baan Rim Nam. As soon as we arrived early evening on Christmas Day, my first words were ‘wow this is SO idyllic’.

Thanks for your review 'MidlandsButterNut' . And thanks for the photo of the elephant in the river. I just had someone email, after reading another review here, and ask if it was true you could paddle a canoe to see elephants in the river. Now i can direct them to your photo.

First discovered this little piece of paradise via Ian's website and was delighted that Ian could accommodate me at the beginning of November for a few nights.

Hi Sandee91607. I remember when you arrived, seemed like you had had a bit of a tough journey to get here. So good to know that you found our place the ideal place to relax.
