Very beautiful spot, not on the beach, but with a great pool, lots of opportunities to kayak (for free) and swim off the docks like in the olden days. The rooms are simple its true, but very clean and everything works. The location is beautiful and the food is good. Not a high end luxury option but a lovely place... More

Cheap, We pay for what we get. I was more than happy with this place. Quite, So peaceful and beautiful views. Very lonely and far from the crowd. Very Comfortable, Maybe new beds would be a good idea, even a TV in the room. Clean and tidy. No bugs and great value for money. The food was extremely well done.... More

I stayed in this hotel quite a long time: 10 nights (1200 for 9 nights instead of 1300 for 10 nights). The room is good and it is very peacefully which is a very good point for people looking for silence. The Thai cooker makes delicious food and it's worth the price. Peter, the German man who helps the Thai... More

We stayed here over New Year period with our two sons aged 9 and 7. Perfect place if you want quiet, water sports (kayaking, sailing), jungle treks if you want, bikes and good food. Quite nights and although a trek to get to from the ferry was just what we wanted. It is also next door to the seafood restaurant.... More

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
