Klong Prao Beach

You feel it from the moment you walk in – and you can’t help but smile. Linen drapes flutter like it’s the only job they’ve ever known. Palm fronds rustle just to pass the time. A warm smile meets your own. There is an energy here, a vibrant yet gentle buzz that beckons you to step inside, cast aside your cares, and let the Breeze sweep you away. That carefree feeling is what sets Breeze Spa apart as Koh Chang’s most refreshing new spa experience. Here on the island, you’ll find it nestled within the iconic Amari Emerald Cove offering a mid-day recharge or a sundowner “cocktail” of invigorating treatments that will put the bounce back in your step, leaving you ready to take on Koh Chang with all the energy it deserves! One of the unique aspects of Breeze Spa’s philosophy is the importance placed on simplifying the spa experience - getting back to the basics of what feels right for you. So one of the first questions your therapist may ask is not “What would you like?” but rather, “How would you like to feel?” That’s where Breeze Spa’s innovative Mood Therapy Treatment concept really makes a difference. Name the mood you’re going for – such as such as Dreamy, Serene, Rejuvenated, Invigorated, Energised – and the therapists instantly put together a treatment that incorporates all five senses, with a carefully chosen body therapy or massage technique, aromatherapy oil, herbal tea, music and even colour! The result? You walk out with a smile on your face, an energy boost, and a positive attitude. Discover the bright side of life at Breeze Spa!

Thai Food Adventures

Thai Food Adventures Below we offer you a photo guide to some of the excellent Thai dishes that are commonly available but that you might not have heard of before. Many of these dishes are available in even the most simple of Thai restaurants and they are generally eaten by themselves for breakfast or lunch as one-plate meals in contrast to the multidish extravaganzas that commonly constitute Thai evening meals. We’ll give you a brief description of each dish next to the photo. And in order to help you to order these tasty treats for yourselves we have included their names in Thai so if all else fails then you can just point.

Gai Yang Grilled Chicken Few things are more simple and delicious than a freshly spiced and seasoned, grilled piece of chicken. This is one of the most common and popular street foods in Thailand and you can find and try it at any number of little roadside stalls.

ไก่ย่าง Kao Soi - spicy noodle soup This delicious curry soup comprises yellow noodles and a choice of different meat curry sauces. Onions, herbs and crunchy deep fried noodles are sprinkled on top for a memorable mixture of textures and flavours It is a speciality of Northern Thailand but can be found throughout the country.

Khao Moo Daeng Rice with red pork There is a strong Chinese influence in Thai cuisine and this dish of Char Siu grilled red pork in a sweet gravy on a bed of rice is a good example. Often served with an egg and a few slices of Chinese sausage it is a common lunchtime one plate meal.

ข้าวหมูแดง

ข้าวคลุกกะปิ Khao Mog Gai Yellow Rice With Chicken This speciality of Muslim Southern Thailand can be found in most parts of the country. The spiced yellow rice is accompanied by a chicken cooked with mild Indianstyle spices and topped with crispy fried onions. It is commonly accompanied by a sour and spicy chilli sauce.

ข้าวหมกไก่

Thai Food Adventures

Khao Krub Kapi Rice in prawn paste Half the fun is in the mixing with this plate of rice cooked in Kapi prawn paste. Served with sweet Chinese sausage, sour raw papaya, chilli, onion, dried prawns, egg and beans it provides a mesmerising clash of textures, colours and flavours that rewards those brave enough to give it a try.

Khao Moo Gop - Rice with belly pork It’s worth turning a blind eye to the calories to enjoy this rich dish of braised pork in a sweet and sour gravy served over rice with a side dish of healthy greens as some consolation for the health conscious.

ข้าวหมูกรอบ Kanom Jeen Nam Yar Kati - Rice noodles with curry sauce This tasty common dish involves a serving of Kanom Jeen rice noodles accompanied by a rich and spicy red curry sauce served with chopped green beans and beansprouts.
