The Koh Chang Lagoon Resort is ideally located on the best beach of the Island. Most of the hotel is between the beach and the only street. A portion is located on the other side of the street. I prefer to be on the beach side if I can.
On the beach side, you can have a bungalow room, which are closer to the beach, or a room the the main building just behind. We stayed in the main building and we enjoyed the view on the beach from our balcony.
The rooms are of a good size and well appointed. I like the fact that, apart the bathroom, the whole room is made of wood, including flooring. Easy to keep clean and does not trap moisture, mould, etc. Once I understood that the air conditioning unit takes some time to throw cool air, everything was fine as the unit is powerful enough. Seems strange that it takes some time to "kick in" but all is well.
The hotel has a nice lobby and large breakfast room with great food. As I tend to rise early, I was the first to show up in the morning and each time everything was ready on the published hour. If I was too early, I could still enjoy some good coffee while waiting for the staff to setup everything. Not their fault if I get up that early!
In my opinion, White Sand Beach is the best on the island to start with. The Koh Chang Lagoon resort is arguably on the best spot. You can walk up or down the beach whithout hassles which is a nice change from the beaches in some of the Caribbean Islands!
For dinner, most hotels on this stretch offre BBQ food on tables installed directly on the beach. The BBQ joint at the Lagoo Resort is excellent.
The beach is great and the slope toward the ocean is gentle. You can walk quite far from the beach and feel secure. When I was there, the sea was calm and I could barely notice eddies in the water.
The street behind the hotel (the only street!) is bustling with activities, bars, restaurants, street food vendors, etc. It is nice to walk from the hotel and be somewhere! If you have experience riding scooters, do not hesitate to rent one (200 baths per day) and tour the island. Trafic is slow and far from being Bangkok hectic! You'll discover easily the rest of the island.
I also enjoyed an excellent oil massage on the beach at the hotel. Massage on the beach is about 100 bath more expensive but the experience is something else!
