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

Pearl Beach Resorts, Villas and Bungalows

Pearl Beach resorts and bungalows are a mix of older resorts, a couple of boutique choices, villas, cheaper bungalow operations, camping and a few long stay rooms. All sit along its shingle shore or under the hills on the other side of the road.

It’s a very peaceful and laid back area, with White Sand Beach and Chai Chet Beach just a few kilometres away in either direction, so you can easily head out to those spots for more life and some proper sand between your toes.


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:-


Pearl Beach Resorts

At the northern end, behind the containing wall, the boutique resort, Baan Ton Rak, comprises rooms around the courtyard, a small swimming pool and the house high up on the hill above. It’s all excellently maintained, with superiors at 2,200bt and deluxe suites for the family at 3,700bt.

With newer rooms down by the water, Koh Chang Privilege, next door to Resortel, remains a very well spaced out bungalow operation and a great under-the-radar choice. It too has a small pool. Rates start as low as 850bt for a garden option, 1,200bt for the sea view.

Roadside in the same section, Keereeta Resort, one of Koh Chang’s older resorts, offers an esoteric collection of rooms either upstairs or down, all set around a central swimming pool. Prices range from 1,350bt to 1,650bt for the upper level pool view.

The largest of the Pearl Beach resorts, Koh Chang Resortel, has been abandoned and is up for sale. It was a curiosity to say the least, with its two double storey blocks of accommodation running alongside an Olympic sized swimming pool but always completely empty.

Southern End

At the southern end down by the sea, Saffron on the Sea, has boutique style bungalows at 1,300bt a night for ones at the back and 1,650bt for ocean facing. Even if not staying here, you can have lunch or dinner on the seafront terrace at its in-house Thai bistro.

Khai Mook next door has a vast array of choices on the seafront and along the little street behind. It’s aimed at the Thai market but their summerly looking huts are from 750bt a night.

Continue along and Penny’s Resort has cheap rates again in that 1,000bt to 1,500bt mark, its well kept standard rooms closely packed around a small swimming pool.


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;

Pearl Beach Villas

Ocean-side with pool, Villa Inspiration is a private holiday rental for families or couples, with four double rooms which sleep up to 12 people. Prices start from 20,000bt per night in high season.

On the small street running down to Saffron on the Sea, Suppatra House offers a 4 bedroom villa, 2 bedroom chalet or 1 bedroom cottage, all sharing a pool, with the whole villa from 6,000bt a night. Next door, Marco Villa, the same owners as the Italian restaurant in Chai Chet Beach, comprises a self contained room in the main house together with 3 bungalows (Davide, Matteo and Tippawan) for rent starting at 1,300bt. The pool is shared.

On the parallel street, you have a choice of three separate sets of villas. Opened in 2023, Koh Chang Luxury Pool Villas is the newest kid on the block, with its neighbour The Pearl Luxury Pool Villas, with in turn overlooks the The Elegance Luxury Pool Villas at the rear.

Very similar in lay-out though slightly different specs, each villa in each set sleeps 6 and has a small pool. Check the booking sites for prices as they will vary between the 3 different owners – expect to pay around 9,000bt to 10,000bt per night in the Xmas period.

Pearl Beach Bungalows

Pearl Beach has plenty of choice too if you are after cheaper bungalows.

Macura Resort, TP Huts and Alisa (changed hands 1/5/24) are located in a little enclave set back from the main road at the start of the village, with prices from as low as 600bt for a very peaceful setting.

Around the corner, Ban Na, once of White Sand Beach, have basic rooms from 500bt upwards in a nice garden setting, with a pool, though it is undoubtedly showing its age.

Next door to Lotus’s, Had Khai Mook Camping has a prime spot by the sea with a pitch at 150bt per person per night. There are bathroom facilites on site, a bar and a restaurant. Opposite, Rose Garden could make a good long stay choice, with monthly rates available at 6,000bt.

Up on the hill behind Rose Garden – there’s a narrow track for access – Elephant and Castle is a small, long running, English run resort with standard a/c and fan bungalows in different sizes from 1,000bt a night. 100 metres further along on the other side of abandoned nightclub, The Studio is a tiny Thai guesthouse over three floors, with good a/c rooms from 900bt, craft beer and a movie room.

At the far southern end up by the road, there is a lond standing and well maintained Thai resort, with bungalows aligned in two rows up the hillside, which could suit someone looking for long term rentals. It does not, as yet, have an English name.

By The Sea

Sandwiched between Khai Mook and Penny’s, Paradise Palms is another English owned operation, 3 or 4 bungalows in the garden by the sea, prices in the 1,000bt to 2,000bt (family room) range.

At the end of the same lane, the landowners, Iyara Group, have cleared Ju Ju/Jane Chalet out and will start a villa development in the near future.
