White Sand Beach Resorts, Hotels and Bungalows

white-sand-beach-resorts-koh-chang

White Sand Beach resorts, hotels and bungalows have a good mix of accommodation, with two upscale resorts, several large mid-range spots, plenty of bungalows, the odd motel and a backpacker enclave.

White Sand Beach itself is usually split into two halves, with a natural division at the point where the sandy beach, the northern end, gives way to the rocks and cliffs, the southern end.

Practically, dividing up the beach also helps you and us get a handle on things, given the sheer number of hotels and rooms available, in what is the most developed and touristy area on Koh Chang.

On this page , we start with our recommendations for the more popular northern end.

Follow the links below to find more detailed listings, best daily prices and the chance to book any of these White Sand Beach Resorts.

White Sand Beach Resorts – High End and Mid Range

KC Grande Resort and Kacha Resort are the pick of the upmarket White Sand Beach resorts at this northern end. KC Resort has undergone a major expansion program over recent years, which has put it up there as one of the best all round hotels on the island, offering 5 different swimming pools, villas on the beach and a new modern block on the opposite side of the road. Kacha Resort itself has not stood still and it too has completely overhauled its seaside accommodation. Both start from 3,500bt upwards.

Cookies Hotel, Koh Chang Lagoon Resort and Alina Hotel stand up as three solid, mid-range White Sand Beach resorts, their rooms, from 2,000bt a night upwards, arranged either in two and three storey blocks on the beachside or on the mountainside of the road.

Recently added to the mix is The Erawan Koh Chang, prices in a similar range. Banpu Resort has a much more natural feel to it, large elaborate thatch roofed bungalows in a tropical garden, little pathways connecting things together and a swimming pool by the sand.

White Sand Beach Resorts – Smaller Resorts and Motels

Together, Du Talay, Apple Resort and Bamboo Resort continue the upgrade of the smaller White Sand Beach resorts. Tantawan Resort and Sang Arun Bungalows, their long time neighbours in this stretch, remain for the time being, unchanged.

Places such as SP Place, Buffalo Bill Hotel and Baan Sai Khao, up by the road, offer another option with good value, clean rooms in a more motel-style setting.

At the very far end of the beach under the cliffs, the many different bungalows of 2/3 star White Sand Beach Resort are not going to win too many design awards, but for location and seclusion, it’s hard to beat. Prices start at 1,500bt.

White Sand Beach Resorts – Backpacker Bungalows

An historical hangover from the early days of Koh Chang, when longboats used to deliver travellers to this beach, the backpacker quarter is right on the sand at the northern end, just a little on from KC Grande. Each has rooms built into the cliff-face with cheap (400bt+), fan, shared bathrooms at Pen’s Bungalows, Little Chang and Starbeach, an eclectic atmosphere at Boo Independent, chilled out at Malyamean and a more salubrious, expensive range at Rock Sand Resort.

At high tide, the sea does encroach a fair bit, so you might get wet walking back and forth from the action on the main street, but it’s a great ongoing alternative to the large concrete Koh Chag resorts elsewhere. At the very end of the beach, indeed it actually has its own precariously steep street leading off the mountain for car access, sits White Sand Beach Resort, bungalows at reasonable rates (1,500bt upwards) on the sand, a good dark-horse choice.

You will also find a few cheap and peaceful White Sand Beach resorts along a little street that runs inland next to Kacha Resort, the long running Island Lodge and Fisherman Hill Resort being just two of the various affordable bungalow operations nestling under the trees.

Maylamean Bungalows

Perhaps the grandest of the budget accommodation and hotels at this end of the beach, fan and a/c rooms, singles, doubles, family room and busy popular restaurant. A short walk from the road to get there, trickier at high tide.
