4/5 Star – Kai Bae Resorts and Hotels

Located seaside in the centre of town, Awa Resort, The Chill and Gajapuri Resort stand out as the three high end resorts on Kai Bae Beach and indeed on Koh Chang. Each offers everything you would expect from a 4+ star resort with deluxe well appointed rooms, pool villas, superb feature length swimming pools and spas. The beach in front of the resorts is a little rocky, certainly not the area’s best, but a 2 minute walk to the north puts you on a lovely stretch of sand, so no real problem.

Awa offers hillside rooms from 4,200bt up to 7,600bt for a deluxe beachfront suite. Gajapuri has superior rooms at 4,650bt, beachfont deluxe at around 6,750bt and then pool villas at 12,500bt and suites at 17,500bt. The Chill’s rooms range from 7,000bt for deluxe doubles to 12,000bt for Sky suites and up to 14,000bt for pool villas.
