Bailan Beach Resorts and Bungalows

UPDATED for 2019-20 Season

bailan beach resorts bungalows koh chang Bailan Beach sits just over the hill from Lonely Beach but it’s another world, a quieter, more local side to Koh Chang, with plenty of mid range accommodation in bungalows and small resorts.

Despite having no real beach except a self-made one in front of the The Mercure Hideaway at the southern end and a tiny stretch at the northern end, the area still ticks along rather nicely.

In its own understated way, it serves as both a bolthole from Lonely Beach but also as an area on the island, which offers something a bit different from the normal beach holiday.

By the Sea and the Road – Bailan Beach Hotels, Resorts and Bungalows

The Mercure Hideaway, run by the Accor European chain, is the only hotel in Bailan Beach. Rated at 3 to 4 stars, its 96 rooms and handful of pool villas represent the most upmarket choice on the beach, with prices starting at 2,500bt and going up to 5,500bt.

At the opposite end, Bailan Beach Resort continues to grow and grow and this too makes for one of Koh Chang’s most dependable resorts, popular with Europeans attracted by its good value rooms in the 2,000bt to 3,000bt bracket.

Bailan Beach Resort shares the beach with the excellent The Mangrove, a fascinatingly under the radar spot, with chic thatch bungalows and partially open air cold water bathrooms. Their 11 rooms are in the 1,500bt price bracket. Also worth a mention at this end, the octagonal bungalows of Bailan Bay Resort cling to the hillside just before you enter the village, still quietly popular after all these years, similar rates to The Mangrove.

Various other mid-range small bungalow resorts are found in this immediate vicinity. Kwaimarpar Orchid Resort is on the ocean side above Bailan Beach Resort with Kamrai Resort next door, whilst Lazy Republique and St Tropez, both French owned, Green Land Resort and Baan Sanook all sit on the opposite side. There’s nothing particularly fancy or designer about these resorts, but you will get good value bungalows, 1,000bt to 2,500bt a night, in a quiet garden setting, some with swimming pools.

In the centre of the village, Harley Moon Hideaway, with its offer of rooms averaging around 2,500bt, lovely garden and a unique red swimming pool, has quickly established itself as one of the best spots in Bailan Beach.

Continuing past Harley Moon Hideaway, Green Cottage, the same owners as Green Land Resort above, has old style bungalows in 3 rows down by the sea, with a swimming pool, prices from 1,200bt a night.

Southern End – Bailan Beach Hotels, Resorts and Bungalows

At the start of the beach at the southern end, The White House is a compact resort, with 2,000bt villas spaced around the swimming pool looking out over the sea. It does have additional cheaper rooms over its car-park at the back.

Bordering The White House, Lucky Gecko Garden sits on the corner, its 6 rooms at 1,800bt a night, while along the small street that leads to it from The Happy Turtle, there’s now a host of bungalows and small houses to rent, worth a look if you are thinking of staying a few months.

Backpacker Resorts and Bungalows – Bailan Beach

Backpackers and travellers have not been forgotten, they after all started Bailan’s development off as they sought smoky refuge from some of their more exuberant clan partying next door at Lonely Beach and you can find some great picks, very reasonable prices

Perhaps the pick of the bunch is at the very dependable Elephant Bay Resort, colourfully painted little beach huts with a swimming pool, from 800bt at 1,900bt a night.

3 Trees Guesthouse is a new addition at the northern end, with just 3 rooms starting at 500bt, whilst Bai Yard Bungalows, a handful of older bungalows from 750bt and Koh Chang 7, a wide selection from 650bt upwards, both overlook the sea in the central area.

Tucked away across the road going up to the mountain area, Blue Garden Resort is a nice quiet option, similar to other resorts in the area with standard bungalows, again French owned, rooms from 1,000bt.

Finally, Rock Inn has a selection of rooms up to 1,200bt per night on the hill overlooking the entrance to Mercure Hideaway.
