Kai Bae Resorts, Hotels and Bungalows

Kai Bae Resorts, Hotels and Bungalows offer a wide selection of mid-range accommodation, four higher end resorts, some bungalows for travellers and a few cheap guesthouses.

Like White Sand Beach, it can be split into north and south, this time the midway river separating the two ends and the best beach at the southern end.

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

Luxury – Kai Bae Beach Resorts and Hotels

Located seaside in the centre of town, Awa Resort, The Chill and Gajapuri Resort are three of the top resorts in Koh Chang.

Each offers everything you would expect from a 4+ star resort with deluxe well appointed rooms, pool villas, superb feature length swimming pools and spas. The beach in front of the resorts is a little rocky, certainly not the area’s best, but a 2 minute walk to the north puts you on a lovely stretch of sand, so no real problem.

Combining deluxe hotel rooms with large private pool villas, 2 pools and spa, Seaview Resort sits at the far southern end on the beach. It has an additional building high up on the mountain side above.

  • The Chill’s rooms range from 7,500bt for deluxe doubles to 12,750bt for Sky suites and up to 15,000bt for pool villas
  • Sylvan (Seaview) Resort: 6,000bt for superior beachfront up to 20,000bt for the pool villa suite
  • Awa Resort offers hillside rooms from 5,300bt up to 16,000bt for a deluxe beachfront suite (peak – 4 nights minimum)
  • Gajapuri has superior rooms at 4,500bt, beachfont deluxe at around 5,950bt and then pool villas at 11,500bt (peak – 5 nights minimum)

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;

Mid Range – Kai Bae Resorts, Hotels and Bungalows

There’s plenty of mid range accommodation – 3 star resorts, a few villas – throughout the village.

Northern Area

Up on the cliffs and on the beach, the older Koh Chang Cliff Beach Resort (KCCB) has some formidable views from its vast villas, with other rooms set around the pool at the bottom. The cheapest garden bungalows start at 1,700bt going through to 5,500bt for deluxe pool access and up to 15,000bt for the family villa.

Also at this end, whilst the the vast Chang Park does have a fabulous location on the beach, its only fair to say that the resort is showing its age. The rooms in the three storey building at the back, the bungalows in the garden and its swimming pool do all need some love and attention.

Pitched at romantic couples and the wedding market, The White Knot, the same owners as KCCB, has just 6 deluxe cabins from 1,750bt a night.

Central Area

The Stage, opposite The Chill, has wooden cabins surrounding its decked pool starting at 1,500bt and going up to around 2,000bt.

Koh Chang Residence rents out mini-houses (serviced appartments) on the small back road opposite Awa Resort, which connects the main street to the bypass road. Weekly rates for one bedroom cottages are 10,000bt in peak season, the 2 bedroom villas at 20,000bt.

Also in this back area, Filou Superior Villas gives you another excellent option. It comprises 4 different styles of room around a small communal pool. Prices range from 1,500bt upwards a night, 3 nights minimum.

In the the center of town by the river, The Green Resort has nicely styled bungalows at 1,200bt to 1,500bt. At the bottom of this same street, the dependable Coral Resort sits on the headland which separates north and south Kai Bae Beach – fabulous seaviews but no actual beach. Prices are from 750bt to 2,500bt depending on the style of accommodation.

Just off the main street near the southern 7/11, Garden Resort is a long established spot with a loyal following, where a poolside double is 2,750bt with breakfast.

Southern Area

Down at the southern end of Kai Bae Beach, the resorts run one into the next. Each offers a combination of bungalows along the seafront and small hotel blocks behind.

The long running Kai Bae Huts, home to the island hopping speedboat services, is first up. A combination of practical bungalows by the water, with newer rooms in the building behind, expect prices from 1,750bt to 3,000bt for family.

KB Resort has grown from its modest beginnings as a small family affair into what is now a very substantial 3 star resort. It boasts a whole swathe of deluxe and standard bungalows, together with rooms in a 3 storey building behind the restaurant. Prices start at 2,500bt for superior double.

Next door, Kai Bae Beach Resort stands out for its different style of cabana with their own roof decks, though it too has a hotel block at the back, prices range from 3,200bt for standard garden room to just under 5,500bt for its oceanfront.

Moving down the beach, the 2 star Kai Bae Beach Grand View combines a new-look hillside hotel building with a great new swimming pool and restaurant by the sea. Prices are around 1,500bt a night for a double.

Alongside, Mam Kai Bae Resort, also 2 star, primarily offers hotel style accommodation in the 5 storey block (with a cool swimming pool on its roof). There is also a smaller block behind as well as two bungalows which sit dwarfed by both. Their prices are a little more expensive, 2,700bt to 3,500bt.

Beyond Mam, there are additional bungalows, fan and a/c, confusingly owned by Grand View, prices at 500bt to 1,000bt.

Far End

At the far end, Siam Bay Resort has seafront bungalows literally in front of Sylvan’s dominant seaside rooms block or next door, a selection of seaview villas and cute pool villas on the hillside. Prices go from 2,250bt to 5,250bt.

You access the resort from a steep, winding street on the last bend before you drop down to Lonely Beach. You could also walk to the very end of the Kai Bae Beach to reach both it and Slyvan, though it does involve scrabbling over a boulder wall.

Budget – Kai Bae Resorts and Bungalows

Northern End

At the northern end of Kai Bae Beach, Mai Pen Rai throws in a pool with its motel style accommodation, prices for a standard a/c room at 750bt upwards. You can also find long term rentals down the the little lanes at the start of the bypass (near to Walking Street).

Down by the beach, Patoo (formerly Siam Cottage), has simple fan bungalows from 450bt and 750bt for a/c, though it does need a bit of love and care.

At street level, cheaper guesthouses, like the JOP Hotel, Lemon Guesthouse and the no frills Blues Guesthouse are squeezed in among the shops and restaurants. Prices range from 350bt to 750bt.

Hidden away too behing the restaurant, Chang Yes, Baan Chom Dao has bungalows in a nice garden area from 1,200bt a night, longer stays rewarded with reduced prices.


In the central part of the village, Duckling Resort offers bungalows, rooms and a dorm, prices from 400bt to 2,000bt (family). M & M Guesthouse gives you another option behind its bar, 500bt upwards a night.

Southern End

At the southern end, Porn’s Bungalows, continues to draw the traveller crowd with its various different styles bungalows in its terrific location down on the beach.

You can also find cheaper accommodation up at the road near the 7/11. The tiny Montra Guesthouse, has stylish rooms off a central corridor, whilst behind it up the little slope, Nonthawat specialises in longer stay bungalows.

Sanook Sanang too, a similar bungalow style, sits on the way to the waterfall opposite the elephant camp. Expect prices for all these options somewhere between 750bt for fan rooms up to 2,000bt for a/c.

If you continue up from Sanook, turn left, over the bridge and then take the first right, it will bring you to some relatively unknown short or long term choices at Ariya, Happy Hippy House and Baan Moderne – best to go in person to see what deals you can get.

Finally, the ever reliable and long establised Seabreeze Bungalows and Paradise Bungalows have standard bungalows and rooms on both sides of the street.
