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

East Coast Resorts, Villas and Bungalows

Koh Chang east coast resorts, villas, bungalows and guesthouses are scattered all the way along the road which runs from the ferry piers down to the turning to Salak Khok in the south of the island. They are centred at the two villages, Dan Khao and Dan Mai.

The accommodation is comprised of several small boutique resorts, luxurious and deluxe villas, standard bungalow resorts catering both to tourists and Thai weekenders, guesthouses and Koh Chang’s only spa.

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 each section:-

Staying on the East Side

If you do decide to stay on this side, you should be aware of the following:-

  • The east coast beaches are few and far between and none are of the same quality as those over on the west coast.
  • Getting about is tricky as the songthaew taxis only run this route 3 times daily each way. Additionally, the companies running the island activities, on the whole, do not collect from this side due to the extra distances and time involved.
  • There is very little happening outside the east coast resorts themselves, with restaurants and shops in short supply. Nightlife is non-existent.

Putting that aside, the east coast is very local, undeveloped, less touristy, peaceful and laid back – its star attractions. You can overcome the lack of transport by renting your own motorbike or indeed car and the resorts are generally more than willing to help.

Dan Khao – Koh Chang East Coast Resorts, Villas, Bungalows

Just before Ao Sapparot pier (fast ferry), OYO Baantalay has little cabins down the lane which leads to the fishing boats’ jetty – 500bt per night, maybe useful for being first in the queue on the first ferry. The older Thai resort, Mayuree Pink, used by Thai packages, sits about halfway between that pier and Centerpoint.

The Beach

About 3kms beyond Centerpoint, Dan Khao is the first area signposted on the east coast. With its narrow coarse red sand beach, it is home to 3 boutique east coast resorts. Amber Sands, Sunrise Beach and Serenity Resort.

Rates at Amber Sands are from 3,500bt for the superior bungalow to 6,300bt for the family room. Serenity has deluxe bungalows at 3,250bt and one of its villas from 6,000bt. Sunrise Beach Resort, 7 bungalows and a swimming pool, has prices from 2,000bt to 3,500bt.

Also on this beach, the tiny guesthouse Pen and Cesar has just two rooms at 1,200bt a night, while Baan Mai Rim Fang Nam at the far end is a larger Thai style homestay, prices from 800bt a night but normally sold as packages. Chanmai Nai’Lay, next door, ia another newer homestay by the sea, standard bungalows by the sea.

Southern Area

Continuing on further in Dan Khao, Blessed is a charming small guesthouse by the ocean, starting at 2,500bt a night, with a larger family option too . Garden of Joy, an 18 room resort, complete the choices with rates at 2,300bt for a garden view bungalow up to 3,750bt for the family option, peak season.

There are also a handful of bungalows down by the sea just before Garden of Joy, 1,500bt a night, which could suit a long stay, though no there are no facilities.

The Villa Development

On the way out of Dan Khao, Baan Talay Thai is a oceanside private villa development, where many of the properties are available for holiday rent in minumum blocks of 3 to 5 days. Expect to pay at least 15,000bt per night for a 5 bedroom pool villa, 8,000bt for 3 bedroom with communal pool, 5,000bt for 2 bedroom with pool, in peak season.

The Terrace, in the same development and sleeping 6 to 8 is very similar at around 5,000bt a night.

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;

Dan Mai and Salak Khok – Koh Chang East Coast Resorts, Villas, Bungalows

About five kilometers from Dan Khao, Dan Mai is the next town along. It’s the island’s administrative centre with the main hospital and police station, so once again staying here is very quiet and local.

North Dan Mai

About 3 km out before the village, Crown View Beachfront Resort opened late 2020, with its unique combination of either single bedroom houses (over 2 storeys) or larger 3 bedroom houses, together with an oceanside pool and restaurant . Rates are from 8,500bt to 22,500bt per night (mimimum stay 2 nights, peak). Almost opposite its turning and more humble in its aims, 2L Hostel (currently closed) sits roadside, with one mixed and two single sex dorms at around 400bt a bed.

Around the next corner, Siriporn Resort has a handful of bungalows by the sea with more opposite on the hillside, 1,500bt to 1,800bt a night, whilst further down also hillside, Fuengfah Hotel (Flower House) offers cheap rooms and bungalows from 750bt.

Another 50 metres on and the curious train carriages will form part of a new resort, hoping to open in late 2023.

Central Dan Mai

Once in the village itself, Baan Chid Talay sits next to the ocean with its 8 or so large house-like bungalows at 1,900bt a night upwards, very good value.

Next door, Beachfront Pool Villa with Apartment is a well appointed modern villa over two storeys with a small swimming pool. You can either rent the whole villa or during the week (not weekends), you can take just individual apartments.

There’s camping too in Dan Mai at Tippayarat – look out for the small sign off the main road (ocean-side) in amongst the coffee shops towards the end of the village.

South Dan Mai

At the the other end, Good View is owned and managed by Seaview from Kai Bae. Aimed mostly at Thai tourists, their simple bungalows with seaview start at 1,200bt, perhapas worth a look.

In an altogether different vein, the privately owned Wave Villas are on the seafront just down from Good View. Luxury Wave Villa (A) and Wave Villa 2 (B) are both holiday rentals, with slightly different rates. Depending on the dates, there is a minimum 5 to 10 night stay as part of their booking critera, with prices in peak starting at 30,000bt a night for 8 persons.

As you leave Dan Mai, Lung Chaloem Bungalows, also geared more to Thai weekenders than western holiday makers, has basic fan rooms from just 400bt a night, with other a/c larger bungalows also available at 1,200bt.

A few hundred metres further on, you’ll spot a small street leading to Home Bar, which lies around 3km inland in a beautiful location amongst the trees. It is both homestay and camping, tents at 350bt a pitch.

Than Mayom

Continuing another few kilometres along the coast, Na Tara Resort, near to Than Mayom waterfall, is a Bangkok style boutique resort with prices in the 2,000bt a night range, mainly attracting Thai weekenders.

On the main road, the tiny Privacy Resort is Kiwi/Thai owned, a very well kept place with a handful of bungalows and a small swimming pool but like Na Tara, it is undoubtedly isolated. Rooms from 1,850bt a night to 2,000bt in peak season but deals available at other times.

Next along, a clearly signed track leads seawards to the sometimes open Kooncharaburi Resort. Its a huge sprawling place, boasting a wonderful pool, house like bungalows and a very peaceful location, but it remains almost completely empty. If open, prices are from 2,500bt a night but deals are most definitely to be had. On the track to it, you’ll pass Flukies, another Thai homestay of wooden cabanas built around a lake, which itself teems with nightly phospherence.

Salak Khok

Finally, hidden away in the mangroves on the east side of Salak Khok, one of the very best east coast resorts, Spa Koh Chang, offers in-house detox programs, but you can still stay as a guest if you do not follow a course. Their cheapest oriental rooms at the rear are 1,300bt, the upper hillside doubles at 5,000bt, the lovely pool villa 9,000bt .

Tip: The most common complaint in many reviews for all these spots is feeling a little trapped, so having your own transport is a real boon.
