The emerald was all i hoped for....i can only agree to most of the previous statements. Everything first class...except,: Breakfast ok not more. Evening, - Poolrestaurant and Poolservice: Restaurant overprised and no time too much. Both add 10percent service plus 7 tax. I noticed to rip off in thl. Highlight: The Chook Dee restaurant... 200m left on the beach, over the water the Second restaurant. Best real thaifood ever! They ask if you can handle real spicy thai..... For us the best restaurant in thl. ever....try love it!

Been to hotel on october, unluckly during the rain season yet, however hotel has magnificant beachfront location, attentive front office staff, nice pool, clean and spacious rooms. Need to improve beach bar facilities Menu in hotel restaurant is poor but food is delicious anyway Could not be recommended for families with kids, seems more like an 16+ hotel But overall, all it was worth to be there Please dont miss it once if you have time to visit Koh Chang

My partner and I booked 5 nights including breakfast for approx. £53 per night (this was off season pricing). We've been travelling throughout Asia for the last 9 months and have stayed in some amazing places, at half the price we paid here, so we had high hopes. Upon check in, the receptionist was friendly (young fella, can't remember his name), but during the check in, he seemed to take direction from another female employee as to which room we were in...they spoke in Thai but that's what looked like was going on. Anyway, the first room we were shown was "an upgrade" - when they showed us the room, the smell of mould nearly knocked us out!! Black mould spores all over the curtains, it was disgusting!! Plus the room had 2 single beds and didn't look anywhere as good as the pic online we saw (and this was an "upgrade"). This immediately annoyed they took us to another room which also had mould spores everywhere and the balcony door didn't close. So onto the third room which was much better. We got the impression that they saw us with rucksacks and assumed they could give us their worst room. The room still had a mouldy smell but it wasn't noticeable after a while. The room was generally clean although the glass panels on the balcony doors and bathroom doors were stained. The bed was very comfortable and housekeeping cleaned the room every day and they did a great job. Shower was ok; not the most powerful! The pool and beach area was lovely, it was never too busy during our stay. The gym is also decent; some equipment is quite old but it's in good working order and there's plenty of dumb bells for a good workout. We didn't use the spa or eat dinner at the restaurant because the prices really are ridiculous!! A coconut costs 120 Baht!! The breakfast was delicious; so many Asian and western options and a lovely selection of fruits and salad options. Staff in the restaurant were very friendly and accomodating. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this place if you're after a luxury stay.

I cannot really fault this resort. It is relatively new, with two-temperature pools accompanied by live music during happy hour. It has a nice beach bar and a beautiful beach. Rooms are spacious with great wifi. Cannot comment on breakfast but given the classy look of the restaurant it should be fantastic. This hotel is close to some nice viby places and restaurants so lots of choices for the evening. Best of all is the out-of-season price. You will struggle to find better value for money anywhere in Thailand. Enjoy.

Stayed at these 3 recently and here is a comparison. Paid a similar amount for the first two and and 10 per cent more for Emerald Cove. Room Kacha 4 Sea View 3.5 Emerald 4.5 Emerald is in better condition, better TV channels (though they got rid of HBO) and had nicer bathroom. Sea View rooms are 25 years old as were the bed sheets. Outlook from room Kacha 4 Sea View 5 Emerald 4 Sea View’s outlook is why people stay. Beautiful outlook on sea and you can hear from the room. You can get a panorama view from the hilltop rooms. Kacha we had a pool side outlook on hillside and mountain view for Emerald. Gym Kacha 3.5 Sea View 2.5 Emerald 5 Emerald has an excellent gym with a range of weights and machines and a boxing thing to hit which for some reason they have moved near the pool. Sea View not so much. Pools Kacha 4.5 Sea View 4.5 Emerald 5 Emerald has a 50 metre huge pool. Other hotels have excellent pools. Kacha needs to do some work on the deck of the hillside pool. Stunning outlook from hillside pool at Sea View. Breakfast Kacha 4 Sea View 5 Emerald 5 Kacha has excellent meals and salads and its only the bread and some meals that let it down a touch. Sea View has the best variety and view from breakfast. Emerald has the best cakes and breads. The chef was friendly at Emerald and made me porridge and bread and butter pudding after I noted their absence. Grounds of resort Kacha 4 Sea View 5 Emerald 5 Sea View is on a steep hill and has beautiful gardens and waterfall in low season . Beach Kacha 5 Sea View 3.5 Emerald 3.5 Kacha has white sand beach which metres away has no rocks and is best for swimming . Sea View has a nice beach but it has a few rocks and it is shallow. Emerald has a few rocks and can be a tad dirty from time to time. Rocks can be avoided with no issues at the latter two once you know where they are. Closeness to town Kacha 5 Sea View 3.5 Emerald 4 Kacha has an excellent night market nearby outside. Sea View is out of town but that is its appeal. They don’t have free transfers after 4pm. Taxi’s are easy and cheap though ie 50 baht a trip. You can walk in low tide. There are nice beach restaurants near Emerald and there are some l places on the street. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the heart of Khlong Prou. You can walk through the beach and Blue Lagoon resort. Overall they each get 5 stars as they are really good for the cost.

we organized a wonderful birthday dinner here with our guests. The team had set up a special decorated table for us. The waiter spoke excellent German (he was Thai and grew up in Berlin). A good recommendation for a dinner-for-2 under a sky of stars.

the room is clean and well furnished, the staff was friendly and helpful, the beach is clean and quite, the pool is nice , the food is delicious , the band is friendly and sing very well. there is nothing to complaint and everything just perfect!!! we had our wedding there and we felt we were treated as VVVVVVIP , everyone was so corporative and helpful, we had best experience in this hotel and we decided to stay again in the near future. all my family members as well as my hubby s family members are all enjoyed stay ! Special thanks to Pafhan and other staff that i couldn't remember the name! you are great! you make difference!

The room was clean and there was a big bed and air conditioning with a fan. Breakfast was great - various cuisine, fruits, vegetables, desserts. The sea and the pool were warm. The hotel is close to the city. We recommend this hotel!!

If I return back to Koh Chang - "The Emerald Cove" would be my choice again... Hotel has a very nice and spacious area, beautiful pool, good SPA, nice, clean and spacious rooms. Staff is very friendly and responsive. Breakfasts were great, but for dinners I would advice to look around. There are many nice local restaurants within a walking distance from the hotel, as well as travel agencies, laundry facilities, etc. I would advise to take pool view / sea view room, because garden view rooms on the ground floor face some canals, therefore you may have more moskitos in the room. If weather allows guests may have long beach walks at the day time.

We departured from Bangkok at night and arrived at Emerald Cove, Koh Chang early in the morning, so we are very tired and we had to wait for check in. At that time the staff(sowanee??) have checked in kindly. In addition friendly welcome with an upgrade to a Sweet Room(3th floor) which was much appreciated. The rooms, the pool, the breakfast and the restaurants and the Beach are so awesome. And not to forget the very kind and friendly staff and the very good service. So our family could have a happy vacation. I will be coming to stay here again soon. Thanks to the staffs and the boss of the hotel.
