Bhumiyama Beach Resort is a long established, reliable 3 star Koh Chang resort.
Located in Lonely Beach, the resort occupies a prime position in the centre of the sand. It comprises 45 rooms, a double tiered swimming pool, spa and restaurant area.
Rooms at Bhumiyama Beach Resort
Accommodation is split as follows:-
- Superior rooms in a two storey style hotel block.
- Either the upper or lower floor of large garden and seaview houses.
All are set in immaculately kept tropical gardens around the pool.
The upper floor deluxe rooms in the bungalows also have suns decks and semi open-air bathtubs.
Amenities in the rooms include individually controlled air-conditioning, LCD TVs, DVD players, mini-bar, in-room safe, bath-tub and shower, hairdryer, bathroom accessories, wifi, refridgerators and coffee-tea makers.
Pool and Sea
The resort’s key feature, however, is its landscaping. The accommodation sits in mature tropical gardens, with the tiered swimming pools at its centre. Taken together, they create a wonderfully peaceful and private atmosphere.
You are literally metres from the sea and the Lonely Beach action yet exclusively separated from it – that is the resort’s strongest point.
Bhumiyama Beach Resort does offer in-house massage facilities.
Dining at Bhumiyama Beach Resort
Complimentary buffet breakfast is served at its in-house restaurant by the sea. You can also choose from a full menu of western and Thai dishes.
The food receives very mixed reviews, but just next door at Nature Beach Resort, you have an excellent and very popular beach restaurant.
Lonely Beach village is about 8 minutes walk away, where you’ll find plenty of cheap alternatives.
Lonely Beach is Koh Chang’s premier nightlife area. Next door, Nature Beach Resort does have a laid back bar and will also have parties on the big occasions, such as New Year.
Bhumiyama Beach Resort – Our Verdict
As one of the most expensive resorts in Lonely Beach, Bhumiyama Beach Resort attracts families and couples drawn to the youthful exuberance of the area rather than for the parties themselves. Mostly European, they are a distinctly different crowd to those staying at boutique resorts like Warapura Resort or Nest Sense Resort.
The resort design is functional and traditional, with the 2 storey bungalow houses roofed in the classic Lanna style. Keeping with that conventional style, the interiors don’t cry out hip and modern, but they still feel nice and comfortable with an added touch of luxury.
As a comfortable and reliable 3 star resort in this area – a cut above the competition – then Bhumiyama fits the bill.

Lonely Beach is Koh Chang’s backpacker, traveller and party center. It’s a fun place to hang out, meet other people, let your hair down and enjoy life.
The area is in two distinct areas, beach and village. The excellent small beach, some 8 minutes walk from the village itself, has just 3 resorts – Siam Beach, Bhumiyama and Nature.
Back in the village, meanwhile, you’ll find a wide choice of accommodation as well as plenty of bars, restaurants, the odd coffee shop, tattoo parlours, massage and ticket agents. Think Khao San Road by the sea (on a much smaller scale) and you are not far off it.
Parties takes place regularly during the main season, so extraneous noise may sometimes be a problem in the wee small hours.
