Ziva Restaurant, Experience Some Authentic Italian Dining

Ziva Restaurant

Ziva Restaurant

An extended stay, on the Koh Chang island of Thailand, may have your budget stretched out a bit, but if you are indeed working on a budget, and you seek to strike a great balance between quality and economy, your best bet is definitely to the tune of Ziva.


Ziva’s ultimate distinguishing factor is the mere fact that it is a family run Italian restaurant, offering that air of a warm, inviting feeling you’d get at your own family dinner table, while maintaining the exotic elements of the Thai environment at the same time.


You’ll definitely know that you’re not at your own dinner table, but you’ll equally feel welcome – like part of an extended Italian family, much like what you see in those stereotypical Italian movies.


Stereotypical is however, no means through which to describe Ziva, firstly because of the unique look it possesses, and secondly because of the truly unique dining experience you will undergo.


The menu isn’t too extensive, but the focus is more on quality rather than quantity, and you can definitely expect to get a bit of an Italian cuisine education, even if you think you have some extensive knowledge on Italian food.


Very well prepared food is the order of the day, and you can savor it all in a relaxed, homely environment, which your entire family can take part in, or even have a romantic dinner date for two.


The menu may be somewhat slimmer than those of larger, commercial setups, with hundreds of waiters running around, but there is a special ingredient in all the food you entertain your taste buds with, and that special ingredient is love.


The personal touch, of the friendly Italian woman who runs the place, is one which you would be very hard pressed to find, anywhere else in Koh Chang, and you can bet your bottom dollar that it rivals some of the bigger establishments in serving authentic Italian food.

tranquil surroundings

gorgeous rocky landscape

all sorts of activities

Situated on the somewhat less glamorous, northern side of the Koh Chang Island, Klong Prao isn’t all that much of tourist destination, especially for those who are in need of a true holiday experience of the exotic kind.

great sunset

cheap and peaceful retreat

all sorts of beach activities

perfect for family

Short description:

Also known as Kai Bae Beach, this is the spot to catch a great sunset! A few small shops and food stalls are along the beach, a good spot to chill out away from the crowds at White Sands Beach.

Bangbao Bay is good for:


seafood restaurants



Short description:

A well-sheltered bay with a small and quiet beach. It is a fishing community where residents still live in houses built on stilts and are connected by wooden bridges. There are a growing number of tourist shops, scuba dive outlets and seafood restaurants offering a good selection of seafood.

Salak Khok Bay is good for:

pretty, unspoiled area

traditional Thai community


quiet and peaceful

Short description:

There aren’t so much attraction in Salak Kok, but tourists can Kayak among the mangroves. Salak Kok Bay still has a fishing community that doesn’t change so much in many years, a great place to see the real traditional Thai community.
