“A nice hillside villa with a good pool and great restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

In January 2014 my wife and I stayed here for seven nights. We booked a standard hillside villa, after reading the reviews, and it was the right thing for us to do. The villa was large, very clean, with easy walking access to the pool and restaurant. The deluxe hillside villas are further up the hill.

The large freestyle horizon pool, was a pleasure to swim in, although a little too cold for us to swim for any length of time. We were not sure if this was caused by large amounts of fresh water being pumped in, or it was just cold in Koh Chang. You get a fantastic view from the pool of Klong Prao Beach, since the pool is in an elevated position and Chai Chet Resort is on the peninsular.

The restaurant was an absolute delight. We normally eat at the resort the first night, then try all the local restaurants. Well this time, the resort restaurant is the best around Klong Prao Beach. The food is very economical, well presented and tastes great. We tried everything Thai and most seafood items on the menu, our picks:- Sun dry Squid, Masaman Curry and the Pad Thai. The BBQ seafood is also not to be missed. At night you can eat out on the veranda under the stars overlooking the beach. The service can be a little frustrating at times as many of the waiters are from Cambodia and may only speak a little to no English. So... trying to have the seafood BBQ served at the same time as food from the kitchen is difficult. We did manage to have a meal on the beach, BBQ prawns and squid, which was very good but more expensive than the resort, hence our dilemna.

The resort is 200 meters from a 7/11, plus there are other small shops in the small village.

Room Tip: Hillside Villas good value and quiet

The resort is adding more rooms on the beach so you constantly hear the drilling while sitting on the beach. Looks like it is going to take at least 8 months to finish.
There are also more constructions in the center of the resort next to the restaurant.
The breakfast is terrible - poor selection and quality.
The restaurant is awful. We ordered a salad without any meat. We received it with bacon. When we complained the waiter actually started to take the bacon out with his bare fingers!
Also the portions are tiny and the food is not very tasty.
The location of the resort is the worst on this beach strip. It's not exactly a private beach. There is no shade and not enough lounge chairs. The hotel does not provide any services on the beach.
The safe in our room (10A) didn't work, kept locking our stuff in it so they had to give us a key which we had to walk around with.
The wifi stopped working occasionally and when it did work it was extremely slow.
There is no room service or phone in the room. If you want something in the room, the pool or at the beach you have to go all the way to the front desk.
Nothing can be charged to the room so be prepared to pay cash at all time.
There were ants in the bathroom.
Massage - the girls that do the massage are too young and inexperienced. Better go to the spa on the main road.
When we complained to the manager about the waiters putting their fingers in our food she totally ignored us saying she was too busy while playing with her IPhone.
There are so many nicer resorts in Koh Chang such as the Coconut Beach Resort or further south The K.B Resort. This one is not recommended.

In December 2013, I stayed at the resort for a few days .I spent a very happy Christmas here. The landscape of the resort is very beautifuI . I liked to take a walk here every day. Here, you can see the tourists from all over the world, you can enjoy the beautiful beach and very good hotel services,especially the rich and delicious breakfast buffet ! Every day in the evening, I sat on the beach to feel the sea breeze and listen to the voice of the sea. I watched the sun sinking gradually , then disappeared in the horizon .I really liked the resort , but I had to leave here . If I have a chance, I’ll go to CHAI CHET RESORT again!

First night I woke up with ants on my face! But it was cleared the next day...about the hotel, good services, nice pool and an average breakfast. The location is fabulous, with great views of the beach and easy access.

Was so happy coming here after spending 4 days at Penny's resort which had been a big disappointment. The setting is beautiful on a peninsular, great access to beaches, rocks , has it's own pier, just jump in and snorkel. Wish we had come here first. Really enjoyed our stay

Room Tip: The more expensive rooms facing the beach are a treat

We spent a couple of days around newyear in this resort and it was perfect. We had first the standard beachroom, nice, clean and spacious. We moved to the standard hillside, same story. But for this room you have to climb a couple of stairs. The only 2 things what could be better are the showers and the breakfast. Breakfast is oké, but everyday exactly the same. More variation would be welcome. Further lovely pool, when the hotel is full it's sometimes hard to find a empty chair (and they are building another building with a lot of rooms). The beach is perfect for a stroll about it!

Room Tip: If you don't like to walk the stairs a couple of times on a day then you have te choose for some...
