Positives Attractive natural setting Quiet Good size bedroom and bathroom Negatives Dismissive management, only concerned with profiteering and unreceptive to problem solving. Skeletal and inattentive staff, who ignored simple requests. Basic breakfast in unattractive setting Small rocky beach Potentially toxic pool Expensive poolside restaurant No added extras to make your holiday special or warrant it's 4.5* status We booked a...

Dear Guest Your review did not come as a surprise to me, although I would like to comment a few things. You booked with us a Private Pool Villa for 8 nights. Our confirmation stated 1 Private Pool Villa with 1 (one) extra bed and an extra breakfast for the second child. That means1 child was supposed to share the... More

Pretty boutique hotel. Nice room in wood-made bungalows. Booked in advance with booking - i realized that at the hotel they had a better promotion available. So i would suggest to check with the hotel directly before booking with a tour operator. We had no room upgrade, although we were day for some few days. We got a free bday... More

The Gajapuri is a perfect located place to enjoy Koh Chang. The rooms are clean, useful equipped and I liked very much the symbiosis of the bungalows with the garden. Also the surrounding of the rooms is fantastic. The cuisine of the Beach restaurant is fantastic and great quality. Personally I see room for improvement regarding the breakfast. Just as... More

Great hotel at Kai Bai beach on Kho Chang. With very beautiful wooden cottages spread around a lush and beautiful garden with raised walkways between. Two excellent pools - one reserved for the adult audience. In all sorts of ways nice and superb. Super location right down to the beautiful beach with palm trees directly on the beach. Great service... More

The Gajapuri is located in Kai bae beach. We stayed in the lanai beach side of the development which is the newer part and doesn't allow under 16s to stay there. The resort was small and relaxed and never felt too busy. It has a beautiful view of the sea to the front and the jungle mountains to the rear.... More

We stayed at the pool villa for 7 nights. We loved the concept of wooden, private, one floor cabins, sitting in a green garden. Very quite and peaceful atmosphere, totally different from the crowded large hotel buildings. The pool villa is a large cottage,with private hidden pool on a wooden deck. I think it worth the extra money, unless you... More

For mature travellers - whatever their age - this is a very nice resort at which to chill. It’s not for back packers or families with children. But for everyone else it is a delight. The Gajapuri calls itself a ‘boutique resort’ and we wondered how this would relate to the standard definition - ‘"a small store selling stylish clothing,... More

Liked this place but deathly quiet and hardly any guests. We didn't eat there apart from breakfast and were disappointed by offerings outside - all westernised menus for tourists and no spice :-(. Steak burgers pizza etc etc Beautiful pool area and small private beach. Twinkly nights at night so you can enjoy the stars from beds, swings and hammocks.... More

The hotel is nicely settled in the center of the small island's village Kai Bae Beach. Although it is in the center, it is absolutely quite and only a relaxing wildlife sound from the surrounding garden's can be heard. Room: Very big and spacious room. Super soft mattress to fall in get a good night's rest. Very detail orient, you... More

We stayed at the Lanay section of the hotel, which is the new section. Beautiful spacious room with a huge bed, great sound proof, cosy wooden design. We had the closest room to the reception, which is helpful if you need anything but there are a few minutes of walking to the pool and beach (the adult pool is great,... More
