Bang Bao Resorts, Bungalows and Guesthouses

koh-chang-resorts-bang-bao-resorts Bang Bao resorts, bungalows and homestays are located along its long pier and around the wide bay, with plenty of great choices, but bear in mind that there is no beach.

For the sand, you need to head to Bang Bao Beach or Klong Kloi Beach as it is also called, which is a 2.5 kilometers up the road, a walkable distance but best on a motorbike or in the back of a taxi.

Follow the links below to find more detailed listings.

Bang Bao Resorts – North Side of the Bay

Before you reach the fishing village proper, a small track opposite Asia Backpackers, fan rooms and dorm style accommodation from 330bt a night, leads off to the north side of the bay. On the banks of the hill, Bang Bao Cliff View Resort offers uniform a/c bungalows at 1,000bt to 1,500bt.

Cliff Cottage next door has its own a/c rooms at a similar price in two one storey blocks but it also gives Koh Chang one of its two glamping sites in the form of Mongolian style tents, (the other is at Lisca Beach in Bailan Beach). Cliff Cottages’ bell tents are perched high up on the hillside and go from 800bt a night in the high season.

Continuing along the road or track, the boutique Nirvana Resort has rooms on the seafront, with two newer Bang Bao resorts further along at Bhuvarin Resort and Resolution Resort. All three have swimming pools, with rooms from 2,000bt a night. Two or three homestays, mainly used by Thai packages complete the accommodation picture, with Homestay Beach the pick of them at 600bt a night.

Bang Bao Resorts – The Village and Pier

Before you turn down towards the pier, Alysia Springs sits on the right hand side, a motel style a/c rooms with a swimming pool at 1,500bt a night.

On the pier itself, little alleys and planked walkways lead to Thai guesthouses such as White House and Chill House, whilst El Greco also has accommodation above its restaurant, a double here from 1,400bt. At similar rates, Buddha View has rooms at the back of its restaurant and Ocean Blue Guesthouse offers fan or a/c rooms off a central corridor towards the pier end. You can also find cheap cute 500bt huts at Paradise Bang Bao Homestay.

If you carry on past Ocean Blue, Koh Chang Sea Hut is now reduced to loft rooms only in its large main building only, after the forced removal of its individual stilted cabanas out over the water.

On the southern side of the bay, Tranquillity Bay dominates the hillside with its two imposing condos apartment blocks. This long running project has now completed construction and most units are sold, prices at several million baht each. You can rent rooms inside, but do note it is not a hotel per se.

Hippy Huts their tiny neighbour sets its sights a little lower, basic rooms from 250bt a night for fan and shared bathroom. Rasta Beach, on the other side of the condo complex, is similarly priced.
