Klong Prao Beach Resorts, Hotels and Bungalows

klong-prao-resorts-hotels-koh-chang

Klong Prao Beach resorts, hotels and bungalows are spread out along the full length of the beach (3km+) , with other accommodation on the small streets leading off the main road down towards the sand or inland towards the mountains.

Being the largest area on the island, in effect the complete middle section of the west coast, you are spoilt for choice with everything from the larger Koh Chang hotels to luxurious resorts, mid range bungalows to backpacker hang-outs.

From the beach, there will always be a few minutes walk to the restaurants up on the street. The temple area is commonly thought of as the central section, with the nearest accommodation to that around the southern canal.

Wherever you stay, ambling along the sand cuts down the distances considerably, as well as being much more pleasant than the hot dusty road. Simply use the Klong Prao Beach resorts as shortcuts – smile sweetly and keep going, nobody will notice.

Klong Prao Beach Resorts and Hotels – High End

Klong Prao Beach has the highest concentration of large upscale resorts on the island, with places like The Dewa, Centara Tropicana, Aana Resort, Santhiya Tree (formerly Panviman Resort), Barali Beach Resort, Ramayana Resort and Emerald Cove offering standards and indeed prices a cut above the norm.

With the exception of Aana Resort and Ramayana Resort which are located on the northern canal (klong) and the road leading down to it, all are found along the beachfront, giving instant sea access for those wanting a change from their excellent swimming pools.

Rooms vary from those in hotel-style buildings over a couple of floors (Emerald Cove) to cabana villas on walkways (Aana Resort) to huge villas with plunge pools (Santhiya Tree (formerly Panviman Resort)) to deluxe grand villas with jacuzzis at The Dewa. Best to assume prices at these Klong Prao Beach resorts will start at 4,000bt a night, though you may find some good deals.

At the start of the whole area, Klong Prao Resort is another huge 2/3 star resort, popular with Thai and European tours.

Klong Prao Beach Resorts and Hotels – Smaller Resorts

There are of course smaller Klong Prao Beach resorts and hotels, with a couple much more boutique in style.

At the northern end, Bhu Tarn Resort, a junior offshoot of the huge Klong Prao Resort, sits just back from the road on its own waterway, while Keereeta Lagoon offers just a handful of very stylish rooms on the canal.

Noren Resort, a popular family spot, is another very solid choice located just after the central temple area, with the The Gallery, a newish economy hotel complete with swimming pool next door.

At the southern end Kachapol Hotel is another good, clean and well-run motel, withing easy walking distance of the beach. Across the road, three older Klong Prao Beach resorts, popular with Thai weekenders, sit side by side on the sand, Koh Chang Cabana, Magic Resort and Choc Dee Resort.

Klong Prao Beach Resorts and Hotels – Backpacker Bungalows

For the backpacker, Tiger Huts is probably the pick of the Klong Prao Beach resorts and bungalows, old style huts with a great restaurant too, an ideal vantage point to watch the world go by. KP Huts, next door, is more expensive but it has some fun brightly painted accommodation up on stilts.

On the southern canal, Blue Lagoon, home of the cooking school, is a long running favourite under French management, while just behind it, sits a tiny good value spot at Green Space Bungalows.

On the northern canal, you can also find rooms at Moley’s Guesthouse, Sapparot Bar and on the other bank, the older Baan Rim Nam. As a guide, rates can be as low as 350bt, but are more likely to settle in the 500bt to 1,000bt bracket.

Klong Prao Beach Resorts and Hotels – Long Stay Bungalows

For long stay options, Long Stay Resort has large villas with kitchens and sitting areas, built along the northern canal where it meets the beach. A month’s rent comes in at 40,000bt, first glance scary, but perhaps not so bad, if on a long winter holiday rather than travelling.

Much cheaper but busy, 3 Seasons or Kongtarra, both by the school up on the road, are happy to do deals on longer bookings.
