This famed facility stands between Highway 26 and the coast on the western edge of Kending town. First and foremost, it is known for the quality of its beachfront. It sits on Dawan (“Big Bay”) – as opposed to the “Small Bay” on Kending’s eastern side – which has a 2.8km beach, privately leased for exclusive Chateau use. This soft-sand beach is considered by many to be the national park’s finest.

The resort’s 295 rooms are divided among three buildings, the Provence, Marbella, and Positano halls, which have façades painted in bright colors “a la Mediterranean.” All guestrooms on floors above ground have small balconies with seating for 2/3 people. Ground-floor rooms with an ocean view are most popular, featuring wood-plank decks, umbrella seating, and direct beach access.

The range of fun-time options at the resort seems just short of endless. Naturally, the big focus is on water fun. Lifeguards watch as you swim in the sea and in the resort’s pools; there’s an adult sea-view pool, three kids’ pools, a “moon pool,” and a SPA hydrotherapy pool. Marine activities include Hobie sailboating, kayaking, and bodyboarding (instructors provided for each). On-site landlubber fun includes a gym (with ocean view), archery ground (on-site instructor), beach volleyball, a “wood ball” ground (akin to croquet), gamesroom, and DIY classes.
