Okay, the first thing you need to know is that the resort is not your typical resort style setting. It is half on a jetty and the other half is an apartment overlooking the water. So don't expect a beach unless you want to kayak there, which is possible and fun and Deiter will even lend you a kayak for... More

I originally booked this place as having looked through pet friendly places it was hard to find too many on Kho Chang. I e-mailed prior to my stay and explained I was taking my two dogs with me (both very well trained and non aggressive. Upon eventually finding this place I walked through a litter strewn drive for about 300... More

1. We can not accept dogs in the resort over the water as space is limited and dogs can not find a toilet but have to make their belongings in the hotel or restaurant area. 2. It is not true that the guest asked for permission to bring two dogs along. If he would have asked we would not agree.... More

We ate at the restaurant and chose the dish of the day, fish. It was the best meal we had during our month away and worth the effort to get there. It's at the southern end of the east side opposite lonely beach (see map). When you arrive you have to continue on foot or moped along a narrow path... More

You're gonna like this resort when you want to stay away from the crowded western side of the island (White Sand Beach e.g.). It is located in the South, right where the coast street ends - due to the mountains they never finished it, so there's no way of driving around the island, meaning no traffic at all down there....

The location is fantastic if you want to stay literally ON the water, and as long as you don't mind being on the quiet side of the island (which requires you to travel by motorbike, kayak or on foot 1-2 hours to get to a sandy beach). Beautiful, restful location, good restaurant (also try Salakphet Seafood and Resort a few... More

We had a great three night stay at Island View Resort. We did get instructions by email on how to get there from Dieter, which we followed with no problems, and arrived without a hitch. Dieter and Jimmy were very welcoming and we were shown to our rooms on the jetty. We had only booked our rooms directly through the... More

First of all. Do pay attention to the e-mail you get in front of your stay. I did not and it cost me a lot to get there. Because the place is in the end of the road on the east side of the island. But it is a wonderful and peaceful place to stay with some stunning sunrises. We... More

Before I even got to Thailand I tried to research a place I could sail in a small hobie cat or laser, this location looked like the perfect place and despite the previous reviews we steeled ourselves towards enjoying the short time we have left on our holiday. The trip from Pattaya was pretty long, if you want some advice... More

We stayed at the Island View resort for 4 nights in February and had a wonderful time. The location of this hotel built on a jetty sticking out in to the Gulf of Thailand, surrounded by wooded hills and islands of varying sizes in the distance has to be seen to be believed - truly picture postcard and well worth...
