About us

STEFAN, the creator and manager of THE FILOU comes from Bamberg, Germany.


He studied business administration and he worked for many years on the road – in the famous Formula 1. He quickly made his organizational skills and career – and he even managed the merchandising of Michael Schumacher.


With the ‘Formula One’, he travelled around the globe – but he only came to Asia in 2010.

The love for Thailand and the still pristine island of Koh Chang finally made him settle down. With the FILOU COCKTAIL LOUNGE he fulfilled his very personal dream. A dream that has been around for eight years now and that became a real success story. This is proven not only by the annual awards from Tripadvisor and other travel portals, but above all by the positive and enthusiastic comments of the visitors.


Stefan is not just an open minded cosmopolitan, but also always open to the questions and wishes of his guests. He helps with words and deeds and has some surprising insider tips to offer. But that’s not all: since 2018, the imaginative organizer has also been renting out the private FILOU VILLAS, in whose luxury ambience – with views of mountains and rainforest – even the spoilt traveller can feel like at home.
