I've travelled around quite a lot both for work and pleasure and this is easily in the top 3 places I've ever stayed in. The place is amazing, with lovely clean, bright rooms and really helpful and thoughtful staff. It's a welcome peaceful break from the touristic western side of the island. Olivier and Luc are great hosts, including texting... More

Soon after your arrival to Mangrove Hideaway, you'll make friends with the resort's two welcoming cats. They absolutely love getting to know you, but will also leave you alone if you're not a cat person. This is the attitude that permeated across my entire experience at the resort. The staff are all a wonderful mix of warmth, competency, and discretion.... More

We have visited this hotel for one night to get some impressions from the nature and culture around island koh chang. The hotel and staff was excellent but the neighbours were repairing a boat and therefore it was noisy during the day. But the evening and morning was absolutely beautiful.

My friend and I had a great time at Mangrove Hideaway. Olivier and Nat were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed (e.g. giving us bikes, kayaks, driving us to a nearby restaurant and picking us up at the end of the meal). Rooms were very clean; relaxation area has a... More

Everything is perfect about this place. Each and every detail has been carefully thought out in the design and comfort of the rooms, restaurant, gardens and relaxation area. We extended our stay here from 3 nights to 5 as we liked it so much, although we went out each day, I could have easily spent a spa like day here... More

Had some of the most relaxing days of my life at the Mangrove Hidaway. Staff is amazing, attention to detail and overall experience exceeded all our expectations from the moment we arrived all the way to check out. Do yourself a favor and go.

We decided to stay at The Mangrove Hideaway because from a previous visit to Koh Chang we remembered the busy and touristy other side of the island. Furthermore the reviews made us belief that we would really like this place and we did. The garden room was comfortable & clean, the deck with mangrove views stunning (you can see the... More

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
