—♦—  Customer focused hosts  —♦—


Your proprietor hosts are Bruce & Pookie Dawson originally from Melbourne Australia. Bruce & Pookie both reside in the main house on the resort. After visiting Koh Chang in July 2015, they both immediately fell in love with the island for its raw and authentic beauty. During that visit they were lucky enough to find this beautiful block which at that time was completely covered by jungle. They immediately paid a deposit on the land with the intent to semi-retire on the island by the end of 2019. Over the next few years they gradually started to build the resort, spending around two months of the year on the island. 

Their aim was always to build this resort in line with Western Standards, as after all this is their home! Coming from a life long career in his own company in the Agricultural industry in Australia, Bruce has a particular passion for gardening, turf maintenance and landscape design. After spending 20 years in Australia, Pookie is also a keen gardener with a keen interest in interior design and building a high end boutique resort.

Being owner-operators both Bruce & Pookie share a high level of attention to detail when it comes to the presentation of all aspects of the resort and both have a passion for people ensuring that every need of their staying guests are met to ensure the perfect stay.
