Me and 3 friends (aged 23-5) stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014. I stayed in on of the garden view bungalows, they were basic but for the price i couldnt complain. We had an en-suite, the showers worked, they were cleaned everyday, we had air conditioning that worked and a fridge that staff would stock up with 2... More

If you're looking for a quiet, secluded, and cheap place then I highly recommend staying here. I stayed for 4 nights and the service I paid for was great! I even got a free upgrade :) The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. They're also very knowledgable of the surrounding areas. There isn't... More

We were able to get a room at a nearby hotel at a slightly higher price. But the inconvenience caused by koh kwang resort owner and staff was very upsetting. Instead of apologizing for the non availability of room the owner of the resort tried to downgrade our room at an unreasonable price, and when we did not agree to... More

In response to your review it appears that there has been a misunderstanding and an exaggeration of what happened. We had rooms available to you that day, if there was a difference with the rate in the event of downgrading the room a refund would be made. The fact that staff said they would call the police was because they... More

Bad things first: Mosquitos, salamanders, ants, cockroaches etc apparently also co-lived in our room. We had a few things washed and ironed before going to a wedding and the woman ironing made a mistake by burning a small piece on my girlfriends dress. Could be worse i guess but the dress was quite expensive and they just kept saying 'sorry'..... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. We had booked a fan room and were upgraded to an A/C for free, which was very good. The room was very clean and comfortable. Nice bathroom and all. Location is bad. Very away from everything, in a kind of desertic road full of trucks, hard too cross sometimes. Impossible to walk. The beach... More

In answer to your review, the British man who was here at the time was not working here only visiting his wife and children. We apologized for the issue with the taxi being late at the time and you actually booked our taxi service again after this. In regards to charging for the phone call we are a 2 star... More

This resort is a great little place if you are on a budget and would like a lovely place to stay in. We planned to stay here only two nights but changed it to three as we were so happy with it. Stayed in the fan room which actually wasn't hot, despite us being here in the hottest time of... More

We had a great stay at Koh Kwang, where we traveled with our 9 month old baby. Rented a bungalow. Normal cleaning. Unusually good service and nice staff. Very good food - we ate at the resort's restaurant, or it was delivered on the balcony outside our cabin (good/low prices). Short distance to the beach. Quiet area and great for... More

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your concerns, in regards to the air condition our system is regularly cleaned and sanitized. Unfortunately Thailand can be very humid and this combined with extended air condition use especially at night can cause issues to some people. We replace our towels and bedding every other day unless requested with the intention to... More
