Nirvana @ Koh Chang is pure heaven, I love everything about the place, the location is incredible, though labelled as remote there is everything you could possibly need and want within a 25 minute taxi or bike ride. The location is just stunning, it can take a while to get there but when you are there the thought of two... More

We've arranged via email with "Nicky" (front desk) to stay at Nirvana for six nights at an agreed upon price. Nicky also offered a boat transfer for our family for 2,400 baht and we agreed. Unfortunately on the night just before our visit, Nicky has informed us via email that the boat transfer fee has magically risen to 9,000 baht... More

I am not happy with this .You allow these people a revue when they never stayed with us...that is not right.... Re the boat transfer from Koh Kood to Koh Chang ...normally yes for 2400 bht ...however this was one of the biggest Thai holidays of the year and the service was full...we got an alternative arranged by speed boat...

It was very easy to get there and we got transfered straight from the airport on Trat and to Nirvana :) We desided to upgrade from the bungalow we had already booked, cause it was a bit hidden away up in the forrest. We did this right away and got bungalow number 1 down on the waterfront and it was... More

We stayed for 2 weeks in Late January 2015 and enjoy it a lot. We were simply looking for a place secluded from the rest of busy turisted Koh Chang and we found it. A short 10 min walk from lovely Bang Bao and with a boat service to a beautiful beach. We simply couldn't ask for more. The staff... More

This hotel was good but expensive. Reception staff were superb but the restaurant was appalling. The staff were rude - i accept language differences but the rest of the island didn't have this problem. Retaurant staff were more interested in playing on their phones than helping guests - and there were only 10 of us maximum! Breakfast was poor -... More

Firstly I would like to thank you for mentioning our beautiful location and our "superb" reception staff....I have to apologise for my restaurant staff who did not give you good service and I shall look into that as I have had no similar complaint for at least 2 years regarding restaurant service...sometimes Thai people tend to giggle when they are...

I have stayed at Nirvana a handfull of times now, and every visit has been fantastic. The manager Ning is very kind and really goes out of her way to help guests with their trip bookings, excursions...etc. The rooms are unlike the standard painted boxes with flatscreen tvs that one finds at even a Marriott or Hard Rock. The restaurant... More

Thank you very much for showing your appreciation of our resort..It gives us that warm fuzzy feeling and encouragement that we all need in the hospitality industry in Thailand after 2014. I like your "unique and cool reference" which shows that you get what we are about and probably indicates you guys are pretty "cool" yourselves. Please come again .... More

We did stay at two other hotels on the island, one was 250 and the other 300 baht (per day) cheaper than Nirvana, so we had higher expectations of this place but left very disappointed. Read that it is a family business but that's no excuse since they charge more than 3 and 4 star hotels we stayed at. Positives:... More

I am disappointed to hear your stay was not to your satisfaction. I am on the resort right now and have made a room inspection and can see no evidence of poor housekeeping...we have done a good deal of maintenance and I do not see much "neglect". I will say however that painting of woodwork is a never ending job... More
