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

Klong Prao Beach Resorts, Hotels, Bungalows and Guesthouses

Klong Prao Beach resorts, hotels, bungalows and guesthouses are spread out along the full length of the beach (3km+), with other accommodation on the small streets leading off the main road down towards the sand or inland towards the mountains.

Being the largest area on the island, in effect the complete middle section of the west coast, you are spoilt for choice with everything from the larger Koh Chang hotels to luxurious and mid-range resorts, bungalows to guesthouses and backpacker hang-outs.

The temple area is commonly thought of as the central section, with the nearest accommodation to that around the southern canal.

From the beach, there will always be a few minutes walk to the restaurants up on the street. Wherever you stay, ambling along the sand cuts down the distances considerably, as well as being much more pleasant than the hot dusty road. Simply use the the resorts as shortcuts – smile sweetly and keep going, nobody will notice.

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 to each section:-


Luxury – Klong Prao Beach Resorts and Hotels

Klong Prao Beach has the highest concentration of large upscale resorts on the island, with places like Santhiya Tree, The Dewa, Centara Tropicana, The Splash, Emerald Cove, Aana Resort and Barali Beach Resort, offering standards and indeed prices a cut above the norm.

With the exception of Aana Resort which is located on the northern canal (klong) and the road leading down to it, all are found along the beachfront, giving instant sea access for those wanting a change from their excellent swimming pools.

Rooms vary from those in hotel-style buildings over a couple of floors (Emerald Cove) to cabana villas on walkways (Aana Resort) to huge villas with plunge pools (Santhiya Tree) to deluxe grand villas with jacuzzis (The Dewa).

Mid Range – Klong Prao Beach Resorts, Hotels

On the Beach – Northern End

At the start of the whole area, Klong Prao Resort is a practical large 3 star resort, popular with Thai and European tours. Prices range from 2,300bt for double up to 5,000bt for a villa room.

Built along the northern canal where it meets the beach, Long Stay Resort has large villas with kitchens and sitting areas. Weekly rent comes in at around 20,000bt for the premier seaview but drops to 47,000bt were you to take it for a month. You access it by taking the same lane as Santhiya Tree, middle of the food stalls shortly before the temple and going right to the very end.

Roadside – Northern End

Set back from the road and a few minutes walk to the sand, Klong Prao Resort’s offshoot resort, Bhu Tarn is more boutique in style, 3,000bt for a 2 room family accommodation up to 5,750bt for its suite.

At the top of the street leading to AANA Resort and the northern canal, Ramayana, from the same owners as Dewa, The Splash and Awa is another large 3 star resort in great gardens. Its standard style room starts at 4,000bt rising to 5,300bt for super deluxe (peak – 4 nights minimum) – scheduled to reopen for 22/23 season.

Central

50 metres down the small street to Santhiya Tree, Elegance Pool Villas @ KP Beach (sister development to their villas in Pearl Beach) could suit a family – two bedrooms and a small pool at 8,500bt a night. Their neighbour Coastal Glow Villa (same owner) combines two villas, so offers 4 bedrooms in total. It’s within easy reach of central Klong Prao and about 10 minutes walk to the beach.

Noren Resort, the popular family spot 2 star choice located road side a kilometre after the central temple area, has now reverted back to the landowners. Its new name is Iyara Boty, double rooms start at 1,500bt.

On the Beach – Southern End

Following a complete restyling and with it, a change of direction, the former VJ Searenity (sic) is now Vayna Boutique. It sits in prime location between The Dewa and Emerald Cove and though not in their league, it now does look a very decent proposition. Prices are from 3,600bt for a balcony view to 4,750bt for seaview.

At the far southern end, two older Klong Prao Beach resorts, popular with Thai weekenders, sit side by side on the sand, Magic Resort and Choc Dee Resort. Rooms go from 700bt for fan , a/c from 1,000bt.

Budget Hotels, Bungalows and Guesthouses – Klong Prao Beach

For lower budgets, Klong Prao Beach also has a selection of smaller hotels, bungalow resorts and guesthouses.

Northern End – Road-side

At the end of the shop house alley which starts at Klong Prao Resort, you’ll find the guesthouse Myristica. Accessed by multiple steep steps, its perched way up on the hillside offering large interesting bungalows (exterior baths, converted water tank toilets) with magnificent seaviews – prices from 2,500bt a night, available through Airbnb.

For long stay options, Leelawadee or Kongtarra, both by Klong Prao school up on the road, are happy to do deals on their nightly rates of around 1,000bt. Opposite Ramayana Resort, try Baan Suan also, where large bungalows for monthly rentals are around 13,000bt to 15,000bt.

Northern End – Canal

On the north bank of the northern canal, Riverview Hostel (currently closed) has mixed or female only dorms from 500bt a night whilst next door, Baan Talay (run by Phu Talay Restaurant), is a stylish nautically themed guesthouse. Its prices are a little more expensive from 1,200bt upwards.

A few doors down from those two, Sapparot Bar and Moley’s Resort each offer just a few rooms in single level buildings behind their respective restaurants and bars, prices from 1,000bt a night.

Accessed down the lane in the middle of the food stalls shortly before the temple, the English owned Baan Rim Nam and the Dutch owned Watercolours sit on the opposite bank. Recently rebuilt, Baan Rim Nam, a long established and popular guesthouse, has new look rooms from 1,500bt upwards. Watercolours comprises just five rooms, 1,400bt to 2,400bt.

Accessed down the same lane, Tiger Huts was probably the pick of the cheap options on the beach, with rooms from 500bt upwards. Sadly though, it has taken quite a business hit during the pandemic and let’s be honest, the rooms are in a fair state of disrepair, let alone the collapsed restaurant. It’s said that it will come back refreshed for the 22/23 season – watch this space. KP Huts, next door, has actually been abandoned, and there is no news yet on its plans.

Central Temple Area

Capital O Iyara Resort, inland opposite the temple, has superior rooms from 1,200bt a night, a useful option for long stay. On the other side behind said temple, you’ll come across VJ Bed and Breakfast, hidden away in the grid of lanes. It’s a three storey motel style resort with pool, cheap for sure but definitely ready for a refurbishment.

Back on the main street, P and Pu House are a set of tightly packed bungalows set back from the road not far from the main entrance to Centara Tropicana. They have a minimum stay of 2 nights from 3,300bt. Across the road next door to Kati Culinary, Traveller’s Rest has 8 or so simple, well-equipped a/c rooms from 750bt. They are either in a little private area or more motel-like on the back lane.

Far End of the Temple Area

Adjacent to Centara Tropicana’s own entrance, on another little lane leading to the southern canal, you’ll find a couple of good value spots – Baan Klong Gog and Sabaidee Resort. Both are around 1,300bt a night and just a few minutes walk from the beach. Blue Lagoon, which sits at the end on the canal itself, has now shut down, another victim of the economic downturn.

A little further round from Blue Lagoon and also on the canal, there are rooms or a whole house, with swimming pool, for holiday rent at Maddekehaoo (Dajevaà, Idoaai, 2C) . Baan Moon is in the same area too – check airbnb for rates.

At the road-side southern end of this same area, The Gallery is a practical economy hotel complete with swimming pool, a few minutes walk to the beach – superior rooms start at 1,500bt, studio rooms at 3,000bt.

Turn in by The Gallery down towards the sea and take the first left for Papaya Cottage, a small good value resort with standard bungalows in a quiet garden setting. Their prices are around 1,200bt per night in high season. If you didn’t take the left but continue on hundred metres you arrive at Maddekehaoo.

Follow past Papaya Cottage and round to the river, The Forest Koh Chang offers modern rooms and a couple of houses, for rent – contact them their Facebook page (link above).

Southern End

On the corner of the next stretch, Big Elk Steakhouse and Bungalows has a wide range of rooms, from just 300bt for its most basic fan to 1,800bt for a bungalow around its small pool.

A little further down and worth a look is Boonya Resort – inland but only a short walk to the beach. It comprises fan rooms from 650bt in its small motel block through to family bungalows by the pool at 2,200bt. Meanwhile, the much bigger, Sofia Garden Resort, again in the same stretch, has about 80 rooms in total, prices ranging from 1,500bt upwards.

At the far end opposite the entrance to Magic Resort, OYO Kachapol Hotel is another clean and well-run motel, within very easy walking distance of the beach, with prices from 1,100bt for a standard double. Nearby, Jungle View Bungalows has accommodation from 1,500bt upwards in its wooden style rooms, complete with swimming pool.
