Koh Chang East Coast Resorts, Villas and Bungalows

koh-chang-resorts-east-coastKoh Chang east coast resorts, villas and bungalows are scattered along the road which runs from the ferry piers all the way down to the turning to Salak Khok in the south of the island. Accommodation is comprised of very well maintained 3 star small resorts, some older Thai-style bungalows aimed at the weekenders and Koh Chang’s only spa.

The east coast remains the local and less developed area of the island but bear in mind it does not have those classic Thai island sandy beaches. Having your own transport would also be very useful as many of the island activities do not collect from these resorts due to distances involved and there is also very little happening outside the accommodation itself. Provided you are fully aware of those minor quibbles, staying this side of Koh Chang offers a nice peaceful alternative from the more crowded west side.

Simply follow the links below to find more detailed listings.

Koh Chang East Coast Resorts and Villas at Dan Khao

Heading east from the two ferry piers, Dan Khao is the first area signposted on the east coast. With its narrow coarse red sand beach, it has become home to 3 small resorts, Amber Sands, The Souk and Serenity Resort as well as a Thai homestay, Baan Mai Rim Fang Nam. If you want to chill out away from the world for a few days, they will most certainly fit the bill. Prices start at 1,000bt per night at the homestay.

Further down, Baan Talay Thai is a small private development with a community pool, where many of the villas are available for holiday rent in blocks of 5 to 7 days. Rates break back down to 2,500bt per night for 2 bedrooms and 4,750bt for 4. Blessed and Koh Chang East Coast Resort complete the choices at very similar daily prices.

Koh Chang East Coast Resorts and Bungalows – Dan Mai and Salak Khok

About five kilometers from Dan Khao, Dan Mai is the next town along. It’s the island’s administrative centre with the main hospital and police station, so once again staying here is very quiet and local.

On the approach into town, Flower House offers cheap rooms and bungalows by the road, whilst at the other end, Graceville and Uncle Chalerm’s Bungalows, both geared more to Thai weekenders than western holiday makers, continue in a similar vein at just 400bt a night.

The imposing Wave Villa is also on the seafront just as you leave town, its prices though are a world apart, with luxury weekly rental from 180,000bt.

Continuing much further along the coast, Na Tara Resort is a Bangkok style boutique resort with prices from 2,500bt a night near to Than Mayom waterfall. It seems to mainly attract wealthy Thai weekenders.

The truly huge Kooncharaburi Resort, located on its own bay, has masive villas and rooms, but suffers from being just that little bit too quiet. Its rates start at 3,500bt. Contrasting in size, the tiny Privacy Resort is another curiosity, a very well kept place with a handful of bungalows and small swimming pool but undoubtedly isolated. Rooms from 1,000bt a night.

Finally, hidden away in the mangroves on the east side of Salak Khok, the unique and excellent Spa Koh Chang offers in-house detox programs, but you can still stay as a guest if you do not follow a course.

Wave Villa A

Per Night: 20,000bt a night (with 7 days booking only)
