Return to Where to Stay on Koh Chang – Hotels, Resorts, Villas, Bungalows, Guesthouses and Hostels.

Chai Chet Resorts, Bungalows and Hostels

Chai Chet has a good mix of large mid-range and boutique resorts and a selection of cheaper guesthouses and backpacker places to stay.

Accommodation is centred on the terrific beach at the southern end, with four large resorts, Coconut Beach Resort, Koh Chang Paradise Resort, Koh Chang Resort and Flora i Talay all fronting directly onto the sea. Chai Chet Resort sits on the cape overlooking the others, whilst the hotel, Paradise Hill and its water park, is across the road from the beach.

Other smaller resorts, guesthouses and bungalow operations are found along the main street or around the shopping plazas in the middle of town.

Prices given are for the peak Xmas period via booking sites, not the hotel websites. They are intended as guides only.

You can jump straight to the relevant section as needed:-

On the Beach and Roadside – Chai Chet Resorts and Bungalows

Opposite the plaza, Neighbour by VJ, Coconut Beach Resort fills both sides of the narrow street which leads down to the sea and then also has accommodation on the beach itself. The resort has always been the go-to choice for eastern European travel companies, boasting a good combination of standard rooms at around 1,700bt a night and seafront bungalows at 3,200bt (peak).

Over the bridge on the cape, the large Chai Chet Resort is also popular with the same market but a step up in quality. It offers well appointed hillside and seaview bungalows as well as deluxe villas on the land spur and further bungalows and hotel rooms back over the inlet by the beach. Price range from 2,000bt for standard up to to 5,500bt for the deluxe villa.

Down on the sand and next door to Coconut Beach, one of Koh Chang’s most dependable resorts, Koh Chang Paradise Resort and Spa comprises a wide range of rooms and large villas, some with pools – in peak, assume 5,000bt for a superior bungalow up to 14,700bt for beachfront pool villa but look out too for its great deals.

Heading south on the beach, Koh Chang Resort, its neighbour, is one of the older Koh Chang resorts and popular with Thai packages, hillside rooms at 2,000bt in peak, beachside bungalows at 4,000bt.

Southern End of the Beach

Just a bit further along, you’ll find the boutique bungalows of Flora i Talay, all brushed concrete and thatched roofs, just a few meters from the sea. The back garden bungalows start at 1,500bt a night, beachfront bungalows at 2,000bt, its beachfront villas at 4,300bt and the deluxe pool villas at 7,500bt upwards.

Back from the beach at this end by the public walkway, Pajamas gives Chai Chet a very good backpacker option of individual flashpacker double rooms at 2,100bt or dorm beds from 540bt, the kidney shaped swimming pool and colourful style all adding to its summery vibe.


Shortly after VJ’s plaza and its neighbour Coconut Plaza, the 96 room hotel, Koh Chang Paradise Hill, sits across the street from its parent resort Koh Chang Paradise. Prices here are a little cheaper than beachside at 2,800bt a night for a standard double. And no doubt seeing how busy The Splash in Klong Prao had become, it too has a large water park for use by its customers and those from Koh Chang Paradise.

Pricing Code/Per night in Baht (B):
B= under 500; BB= 500 to 1,500; BBB= 1,500 to 3,000; BBBB= over 3,000;

The Plaza Area – Chai Chet Resorts and Bungalows

Being renovated for the 23/24 season, Luxury Guesthouse, down the lane just before Neighbour by VJ, houses a good range of clean and practical rooms over several floors with prices from 1,200bt a night. The beach road is just on the other side.

At the back of the plaza, VJ Island View is used mainly by island workers and resort staff.

Assume prices are in the region of bunk beds at 550bt upwards, private doubles, twins and quadruples at 1,000bt to 1,800bt.
