Klong Prao Beach Resorts, Hotels, Bungalows and Guesthouses

UPDATED for 2018-19 Season

klong prao beach resorts hotels bungalows guesthouses koh chang

Klong Prao Beach resorts, hotels, bungalows and guesthouses 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 guesthouses and backpacker hang-outs.

The temple area is commonly thought of as the central section, with the nearest accommodation to that around the southern canal.

From the beach, there will always be a few minutes walk to the restaurants up on the street. 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 the resorts as shortcuts – smile sweetly and keep going, nobody will notice.

Luxury and Mid Range Resorts, Hotels – Klong Prao Beach

Klong Prao Beach has the highest concentration of large upscale resorts on the island, with places like The Dewa, Emerald Cove, Santhiya Tree, Aana Resort, Centara Tropicana, Barali Beach Resort and Ramayana Resort 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) to deluxe grand villas with jacuzzis at The Dewa.

As a guide, prices in high season are:-

  • Emerald Cove: 4,700bt for deluxe room to 16,575bt for ocean suite
  • Dewa: 5,700bt for deluxe room to 15,200bt for grand villa
  • Santhiya Tree: 7,700bt for deluxe room to 18,600bt for pool access deluxe
  • Centara Tropicana: 5,450bt for superior room to 10,950bt for Cabana suite
  • Barali: 4,900bt for deluxe to 8,4200bt for junior suite
  • Aana: 2,700bt for deluxe room to 6,750bt for villa with plunge pool
  • Ramayana: 2,800bt for deluxe to 6,200bt for family suite

These would include breakfast, taxes. Expect them to go up again for peak season (around 24/12 to 5/1 or later)

At the start of the whole area, Klong Prao Resort is another huge 2/3 star resort, popular with Thai and European tours. Prices range from 2,300bt for double up to 4,000bt for a villa room. Its sister resort, Bhu Tarn is more boutique in style, 3,000bt for a 2 room family accommodation up to 5,750bt for its suite.

Noren Resort, a popular family spot, is another very solid 2/3 star choice located road side just after the central temple area. Double rooms start at 2,700bt.

VJ Searenity is in prime location between The Dewa and Emerald Cove. Not in their league, it is still popular with eastern Europeans and for its location, worth considering. Prices are from 3,300bt for doubles on their website.

At the far southern end, three older Klong Prao Beach resorts, popular with Thai weekenders, sit side by side on the sand, Koh Chang Cabana, 1,700bt to 2,000bt a night, Magic Resort and Choc Dee Resort where fan rooms go from 700bt.

Built along the northern canal where it meets the beach, Long Stay Resort has large villas with kitchens and sitting areas. A month’s rent comes in at 40,000bt, which if on a long winter holiday, maybe more reasonable than it might seem as 1st glance.

At the southern end opposite the entrances to Grand Cabana and Magic Resort, Kachapol Hotel is another clean and well-run motel, within very easy walking distance of the beach, with prices from 750bt for a standard double.

Also worth a look is the Italian owned Boonya Resort towards the southern end, inland but only short walk to the beach, It offers fan rooms from 650bt on its small motel block through to family bungalows by the pool at 2,200bt. The much bigger, Sofia Garden Resort is in the same stretch, with about 80 rooms in total, prices ranging from 1,500bt upwards

VJ Bed and Breakfast, sister resort to VJ Searenity and indeed VJ Island View in Chai Chet, is at the rear of Klong Prao Temple. Popular with eastern Europeans, its double rooms start at 1,200bt .

For the backpacker, the recently renovated Tiger Huts is probably the pick of the bunch. It also has a great restaurant, an ideal vantage point to watch the world go by. KP Huts, next door, gives you another option, with its fun brightly painted accommodation up on stilts. Prices at either start are from 700bt upwards.

On the southern canal, Blue Lagoon, home of the cooking school, is a long running favourite under French management. Fan rooms can be as low as 650bt per night in high season, family rooms and the unqiue eco room at 2,000bt. Just behind it, Sabaidee Resort (T & T Bungalows) is another good value spot from 1,300bt a night.

On the northern canal, Baan Talay is a stylish nautically themed guesthouse run by Phu Talay Restaurant, while Sapparot Bar and Moley’s Resort are a few doors down, each offering just a few rooms in single level buildings behind their respective restaurants and bars, prices from 1,000bt a night.

On the opposite bank, Baan Rim Nam is a long established guesthouse, popular in tripadvisor, rooms from 1,000bt to 1,900bt. Next door, Watercolours has also opened its doors in the last year (taking over the old Keereeta Lagoon), just three rooms, 1,400bt to 2,400bt.

For long stay options, 3 Seasons or Kongtarra, both by Klong Prao school up on the road, are happy to do deals on their nightly rates of around 1,000bt. Opposite Ramayana Resort, try Baan Suan also, where large bungalows for monthly rentals are around 13,000bt to 15,000bt.

P and Pu House, tightly packed bungalows set back from the road not far from the main entrance to Centara Tropicana has minimum stay of 2 nights from 3,300bt. Iyara Resort, inland opposite the temple has superior rooms from 1,200bt a night, again a useful option for long stay.
