We were very very impressed by The Mangrove Hideaway, and loved staying in this quiet part of Koh Chang. Room: comfortable, very nice. There is some unavoidable small noise as this is a converted fishermans house, but everyone tends to show respect and we had a relaxing time. Building: The level of attention to detail is as high as any... More

Who would have ever imagined one of the best places to spend your break could be in this fine resort in the midst of a fisherman's village! My wife and i spent 2 nights here based on the experiences posted by other travelers and surely it did meet them. We could see the huge difference in staying at Mangrove vs... More

If you want to spend a few days of original Thailand with a certain comfort, here you are right! The hotel offers 8 rooms in a fishermen's village at the south cost of Koh Chang, far away from the crowded beaches of the west coast. But it is Olivier and his team who make your stay unforgettable and unique: they... More

Having just stayed at the Mangrove for 6 days, myself and my wife cannot thank them enough. The whole stay was very enjoyable. The staff are very helpful from the managers to the kitchen staff that all work as a team ( Oliver, Luc, Nate, and all the girls), and make you feel at home. I've stayed in some 5*... More

If you want a beach, teaming with tourists, predictable restaurants and shops then don't come here! If you want peace and quiet, a chance to mix with locals in a working fishing village on a river surrounded by mangroves then this is the place for you. A little of the beaten track makes a massive difference. The surrounding area is... More

Wow, wow, wow! From the moment we arrived and Nat welcomed us back after a very efficient transfer arranged through the Mangrove from the Cambodian/Thai border, we were again in our own little world of relaxing bliss (much needed after 5 nights in Siem Reap) and stayed from the 30th December for a 9 nights. I am almost reluctant to... More

Me and my girlfriend were looking for a place to relax after our 4-week backpacking trip. Although this resort is more expensive than we would normally book, it was worth every penny! This place offered everything that we were looking for. Note that the resort is not located near the beach (the nearest beach, Wai Chaek beach, a very secluded... More

We've travelled all over Asia and this is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at both in terms of accommodation and location. It was the perfect place to unwind after a long flight and a couple of days in Bangkok.

We stayed with a group of 4 at the Mangrove Hideaway and were thoroughly impressed by how beautiful the place is. Hidden inside a fishing village it boasts pretty surroundings and a place to relax, enjoy great food and massages. The rooms are impeccable and the staff very friendly. Luc and Olivier have been wonderful especially when Olivier checked in... More
