Koh Chang Resort is located in an exellent place. We had a beach front room (cottage) and loved to sit on the veranda and look out to the sea, and listen to the waves. Kae the owner spoke english, she is a funny and nice lady, that helped us with everything we asked for. The swimming is not so good as at Koh Phayam, but OK (very shallow on low tide) and there are sandy beaches on both sides of the resort. We had all our meals at the resort, not easy to visit other resorts, and the food was good. They have a small quay or pier which is very handy for landing with a boat. There is a boat leaving twice a day for Ranong and back. Electricity is 6 hours in the evening. The bathroom was not well taken care of, and not very clean. I cannot really understand when they have such a nice place, that they do not take better care of it. Updating the bathroom would make wonders to the place. Behind the beach front rooms there were new rooms, but I would never swop one of them with the beach front room. Beware that Koh Chang Noi is not a very developed Island, but that did not bother us, we would like to go back. The headline may seem not to match the score I'll give 7,5 out of 10, but that was really because of the bathroom. We loved the place.
The location of the resort is really nice. But we felt highly overcharged! We were in contact with the resort before and asked to book a room. Since the atmosphere in this area is very friendly and amicable, we preferred rather to book directly at the resort as through a booking website, where a high percentage goes to the website itself. They told us just to come by and not to worry as they would have several room for us to pick from. We asked again twice about the rates and to book in advance, but where told to pick a room on site and not to worry. Since we have seen prices online and were in a vacation mood, we just went there. To our surprise the price we were asked to pay, was about double of the highest prices we had seen online - for the same period. And there were only two rooms of the same category left. Our bungalow wasn't even one of the nice beachfront ones, but set back in second row, with a view to the beach over the pathway and two other bungalows. So certainly not the highest category. When we pointed out the high room rates, we were told it was due to the fact that our bungalow had 24hrs electricity, which we found out during our first night was a lie. We don't mind not having electricity 24/7 as we know is normal on this island. But to lie about it and use it for clearly overcharging us is without words! In addition our room hadn't been cleaned before our arrival with brown stains on the toilet, shampoo and tooth past marks all over the bathroom, sand everywhere and missing toiletries. When we pointed this out - in a very friendly way as we know the matter of losing his/her face is a big thing in Asia - the maid came to our bungalow but was clearly very angry at us. The second night the room wasn't cleaned either so we had to go and ask for toilet paper to be able to use the toilet. All this mades us feel very uncomfortable. All in all a nice resort but due to several problems mentioned above, not a place to feel at home and find total relaxation unfortunately!
A lovely place to stay with bungalows over the water. The clubhouse encourages you to just hang out. Food available all day and a really nice selection too. Rooms were spotless and spacious. The balconies with hammocks make lounging around the top activity. However if you really must get off your butt Motorbikes for rent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we can't wait to go back.
This resort has been renovated not too long ago. Very friendly owner. Nice bungalows above the sea and you can hear the waves at night underneath. You have access to the beach next to another resort, but only a five minutes or less walk. Just bring the mosquito repellent with you so you can enjoy the evening longer on your balcony.
Very nice bungalows right at the seaside (1200 bath)with balcony or cheaper ones without sea view (300bath). 3 minutes walk to the beach. Good food. Very nice staff. Bathroom und room were not very clean. Bed sheets with spots. Shower had a very low water pressure. Altogether a very nice stay. The location is just awesome.
Kho Chang Resort is on the island of Little Chang,Ranong,and not to be confused with the larger and more populated island of Ko Chang. I was tipped to visit here some 2 years ago and had a wonderful blissful time,amongst the wonderful but quirky european travelers who make this their winter haven. Most of the visitors seem to be German or northern European,(TG), some with mixed pedigree but all with the hope that this Paradise stays as it is!. The Koh Chang resort is possibly the largest on the island with over 20 bungalows costing from 1500 to 300 Bahts per nt. The more expensive are new and on the waterfront with great sea views. The 300,b ,8 euros,like mine are older and just a little back from the frontage,cooler,and in my opinion great value. Gay runs the resort and dining area and is a wonderful host,with help and infomation on anything you require from trips to local nocturnal events to her menu. You can visit local islands and restaurants not to mention the various markets in Ranong using the long tails for overnight/ day trips. The village schoolmaster and Thomas Hardy would surely approve.
Forget aircon! You'll love the natural seabreeze through the windows. Enjoy evenings in candlelight on your own balcony above the sea. Fall asleep listening to the rythm of the rising tide. No mosquitos! Be sure you take the seaside bungalow and not the bamboo hut in the forest. Koh Chang is a relaxed place like all the other hippielike resorts on this island.
Me and my friend booked from a lovely woman at the pier in Ranong because she give us a special rate for one of their brand new bungalows directly at the beach. Our bungalow had a big private balcony with a dream view, good bed and bathroom, just perfect! I stayed there 2 years ago in the budget bungalows back side but I would recommend to everybody to check out the new ones. For me one of the best places at Koh Chang!
Dear friend, Koh Chang Resort have 3 type of bangalow. Seafront bungalow must expensive than bungalow set back in the garden. At the moment are low season the bungalow price very cheap. Please guest consideration of the situation your first want a cheap price but in your case you changing your mine to Front beach bungalow with a more expensive price adding 100 THB. So sorry for misunderstanding sir. Sorry for misunderstanding with staff too.
I have been to this Resort. They have provided us a good service, all the staff was very friendly and cooperative. I appreciate that and wish to go there again. The most amazing thing was the views of sea sights and the greenery of islands.This island is full of natural beauty.
