We stayed 4 nights at the Mangrove Hideaway and didn't want to leave. I have never felt so well looked after as we did here. Olivier and team seem to know what you want before you do! They took us in their boat to a little beach on a deserted island and the boat was packed with water, towels, beach... More

Great places are like shadows of great people? Not easy to tell about but all this, the upper rest zone, the super food, flowers, plants, ambiance, little details, rules of respect, care and professionalism adds up to something truly delicious. Oliver and captain Luc do care about every detail and this is not only perfect service, but introduction to this... More

My partner spent a fair amount of time researching the location for this holiday and I left it entirely in his hands. I knew we were going to stay in a quiet fishing village in a non-touristy area of a beautiful Thai island, but what I did not know was that we would be staying in Paradise! I exaggerate not!...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in mid November and were very impressed with this small resort. The rooms and public areas are thoughtfully decorated, and Luc, Olivier and the rest of the staff are welcoming and attentive. This is a lovely part of the island, and there was enough to keep me occupied for a couple of... More

When we came from Moscow (about 24-hours road), Luke (one of the hotel owners) met us and offered his care and attentiveness from the first minute. Every time when we were going somewhere, he offered us the best way how to do that: he gave us a big bottle of drinking water and waterproof bag when we walked to the... More

Mangrove Hideway is a unique place , run by a dedicated, passionated and very kind team. The house itself is a rare beauty, very traditional, designed with local / Thai furnitures and - even so I'm not into spirituality - bring peacefulness. You just feel happy there. You can feel a lot of thoughts have been given to make a... More

As our first stop on our Thailand vacation we chose the mangrove hideaway... And we totally loved it. The team was really friendly, polite and helpful. They offered us so many possibilities, even when we had to change our plans on a very short notice due to the weather. The hotel is located within a nice and quiet fisherman's village.... More

This review is coming almost 8 months late but I HAD to write it, because I've never been to a place with such amazing views, hospitality and ethics all blended together. We travelled to Koh Chang for our anniversary and wanted a nice quiet place. And we were lucky to book ourselves into The Mangrove Hideaway. It's a little far... More
