Stunning Chaloklum BeachThe beach on Ao (bay) Chaloklum is about two and a half kilometres long with the fishing village of Chaloklum in the centre.

Chaloklum Bay Resort is located on the quiet and secluded western side of the bay, with views all the way up the long beach and in front of the resort there is a rich coral reef that is a haven for exotic and beautiful marine life. At the western end of the bay, the broad white sand beach curves gently into the rocks, and then turns into a tropical paradise of lush green jungle stretching over the protective headlands.

They have chilled tunes and a variety of beers and cocktails, the perfect place to escape the hot sun or wind down after a hard day on the beach.

Volleyball, badminton and football can be played on the beach and there is snorkelling equipment available if you want to explore the nearby coral reef.

Beachfront Bungalows with Air-ConThe architect who designed the resort has fused traditional Thai and modern influences to create a well laid out and spacious landscape that is both pleasing to the eye and functional. All the bungalows face the beach and are positioned so that there is a sea view from every balcony and enough space between them for complete privacy. The resort was previously a coconut plantation and the tall palms remain, giving shade to the lush gardens and cooling the buildings.

Around half of the bungalows are a spacious 5 by 7 metres and the remaining ones are still roomy at 4 by 6 metres.

Mountain ViewpointChaloklum Bay Resort is located just outside Chaloklum village on the new concrete ring road that joins the north to the west of the island. Ban (village) Chaloklum is still primarily a fishing village, and the fishing trade centres around the mid-section of the beach where the village is located. This is where the local fishermen keep their long-tail boats, and the image of all the wonderfully colourful handcrafted boats with their huge engines is a great view to take in while eating in the local restaurants. There are also a few cool bars to visit and Paradise Waterfall, one of the biggest clubs on the island is just outside the village.

Chaloklum is also home to a couple of dive schools and there are several dive and snorkelling sites nearby, including Koh Ma, Koh Phangan's only National Marine Park.

There is a 4WD taxi service available from the resort, where you can warm-up with a few drinks before you go and party the night away!

Nights out in Had Rin can be rather long, and waking up on the beach without your wallet is not an uncommon scenario; Chaloklum Bay Resort recommends you only take what you need and use our safe service to store your passport and valuables, in good hands and away from all the action.
