I'm not usually one to write a review, but I think everyone should know how wonderfully tranquil and accommodating this place is. We, unfortunately, are only able to stay one night here because of plans arranged prior to arriving, but I must say this place has been the best hotel experience we've had in our three weeks in Asia.

We travelled to Thailand the first time in October 2014 abd stayed in the hotel for one week, though initially we booked only 4 days. It's a place for those seeking a relaxing atmosphere away from masses of tourists, noise, and hassle. Massage and relaxing attic coupled with impeccable service will make you forget all your problems and re-vitalize your... More

Most warm welcome by Olivier at arrival. Far from the touristic westcoast, but most authentic Koh Chang we have experienced! We had a lovely stay in this personal, clean and warm lodge with a good French-Thai kitchen. We did a wide variety of possible activities, from kayak in the mangrove, visiting deserted beaches by scooter, private boattour by captain Jean-Luc,... More

If you are looking for bright lights and noisy bars aimed at tourists then a stay at the Mangrove isn't for you. If what you're after is peace, tranquility and a taste of real Island life then the Mangrove is the perfect holiday destination. Olivier, Jean Luc and their wonderful staff have achieved perfection. The location, food, service, cleanliness and... More

If you are looking for a different kind of accommodation, where peace and relax reigns, let The Mangrove be your choice . They are perfectly integrated into village life and are able to couple the Thai hospitality and smile, with the European comfort standard. Both room and bathroom are very clean, with everything you need. Upstair there is a loft... More

We came to Mangrove based on the Tripadvisor's comments and weren't disappointed! The service is more then excellent as each guest is treated as a family member not just like a guest. The restaurant is really good. We had a dinner at Mangrove every evening - which never happens to us - to dinner at the same place during 4... More

This is a great place to enjoy a bit of luxury in the middle of an authentic thai fishing village away from mass tourism. We experienced exceptional hospitality from the owners and staff at this beautiful eco friendly retreat. Our stay was peaceful and restful, but also fun and adventurous, with kayaking, snorkling, jungle walks and fishing, thai massage, a... More

Everything at the Mangrove is so nice, personal, tasty, ambient to an extend that goes beyond our expectations. At The Mangrove my wife and I found true hospitality, the most kind staff you can imagine, timed and relevant services (our luggage was delayed and immediately two toothbrushes were provided, etc.) and what perhaps was most important: all services and attentions...
