Come to think of it, to say we have come a long way should not be an overstatement. When the resort first kicked off, only a total of 20 bungalows, all built with bamboo and thatch, were there, drawing predominantly to budget backpackers. Our rooms were downright no-frills, shower rooms shared, and lights generated by cranky electricity generators. Electric fans were a luxury and wifi, you bet, never yet heard of. Therefore, all that was left for our guests to do boiled down to literally bonding with nature and that’s exactly why the resort was given its name. Needless to say, the aforementioned halcyon days were real enchanting, serving more or less as the epitome of what the present-day concept of slow life is all about, and some of our resort’s erstwhile guests who revisit are fond of grumbling, nostalgically or not, that they miss Koh Chang as they came to know it 20 years ago. Granted, however, tourism-wise, as reality always calls for a fair share of adaptation for a business to survive in the whirlwind of pell-mell development once the destination it is part of suddenly happens to boom, the very thing that has befallen this very island over the past two decades, we have embraced change, convinced that our chosen direction will end up translating into better guest comfort and satisfaction. Nevertheless, we know in our heart that we have one job to do : to never forget what made us “Nature Beach” in the first place.
