Centara Koh Chang Tropicana Resort Resort is one of Koh Chang’s most popular luxury resorts.
Located on the very popular Klong Prao Beach, Koh Chang Tropicana Beach Resort, managed by the Centara Group, has 157 spacious rooms and suites set in pretty landscaped gardens, together with swimming pool, spa, restaurant and bar.
Rooms at Centara Tropicana
- Superior rooms with terraces and glass frontages near the pool.
- Deluxe cabanas and suites dotted around the grounds.
Tropicana Resort’s swimming pool faces the sea. You can set off out of the resort straight onto the sand in either direction.
The amenities in Centara Tropicana rooms themselves are everything you would expect of a luxurious resort with individually controlled air-conditioning, satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities, mini-bar, in-room safe, hairdryer, IDD telephone line and complimentary wireless Internet access.
Dining at Koh Chang Tropicana Resort
Koh Chang Tropicana Resort offers an extensive buffet breakfast. The Sea Breeze Restaurant serves Thai, Italian and International cuisine all day. You can get the perfect holiday moment at the Sunset Bar, which also runs a happy hour.
The food and drink gets decent enough praise, prices obviously befit a 4 star resort standing, but you can easily venture out along the sand to the beach cafes and other resorts.
Alternatively, you can walk up to the main road, where you’ll find plenty of local restaurants, food stands, fruit markets and convenience stores. Kati Culinary, El Greco, Crust Bakery and Babylon (formerly the beach located Pilot) are just a few diners to look out for.
Pool, Location, Spa and Facilities
Not its strongest element as the pool is a bit small for a resort of this size, but the kids love it. Talking of the little ones, the resort also runs a Kids’ Club.
Centara Tropicana faces onto one of Koh Chang’s best beaches. It is also only a few minutes walk from the central hub of Klong Prao, with all its restaurants and shops.
The Cenvareee Spa, upmarket pampering with 8 treatment rooms, opens from 11.00am to 20.00.
Centara Koh Chang Tropicana Resort – Our Verdict
Koh Chang Tropicana Resort is charmingly understated in its design. It combines low level buildings roofed with thatch, pastel colours and stylish but simple wooden interiors. Everything is then cleverly laid out in the lush green gardens to give the guests plenty of space.
The resort is peaceful and very relaxed, managing to satisfy both couples and families, no mean feat. We rate Centara Koh Chang Tropicana Resort as one of Koh Chang’s prime 4 Star Resorts. The prices too are very competitive, no need to break the bank.

The peaceful Klong Prao Beach is a lovely long 3km stretch of sand split by two canals at either end. With its concentration of large upmarket resorts right on the beach, it attracts families, couples and just a few independent travellers.
Around the central temple, it has a good mix of Thai and Western restaurants and plenty of shops, all a short walk only from the sea. It’s not a nightlife area. The area boasts the main waterfall at Klong Plu, elephant camps and cookery schools.
