We booked 2 rooms for 4 nights in a Hillside Villa last week followed by 1 night seaview villa (as a late booking). My boyfriend and I were catching up with my parents from England.
The resort is set off from the main road so very quiet and the hillside villas are set away from any noise and almost tropical. The rooms are a really good size as are the bathrooms. There are lovely views of the beach from some of the hillside villas and are all really peaceful. The rooms are a bit tired and it would be great to have somewhere to sit inside apart from the bed. In one of our rooms there was an issue with the toilet plumbing. The staff attempted to fix this the morning after the problem was reported, but we still had issues with the smell of sewage. The seaview villa on the last night was similar to the hillside but with great views of the sea and a rocky foreshore. It was a five minute walk to the sandy beach at Chai Chet and 5 minutes walk to local shops, street food and restaurants/cafes where we took advice from the locals.
The pool area was really lovely. The pool was a great size, relaxing, with amazing views to the beach. We spent most afternoons after a day on the beach with a beer/cocktail at the pool. A plate of fresh fruit in the afternoon for 80 bahts was also amazing.
The dining room has a great view out over the sandy bay. The Thai food at dinner was pretty good with a great selection. The drinks and dinner were really well priced. The breakfasts (which were included in the cost of the room) were great. A selection of Thai and western style food on offer. Fresh omelettes made to order which were amazing! For us the absolute best bit of the Chai Chet resort was the staff. They were so friendly and helpful. They took the time to speak with us and build a rapport with us throughout our stay. They were great with the kids that were staying at the resort and were always on hand to answer questions about Thailand/Cambodia and generally make us smile. Chai Chet is obviously also a hit with the locals. Every other night there was a group of Thais in the air conditioned function room for evenings of karaoke and a couple of nights there were groups in the main restaurant. There was a great mix of foreign tourists and local tourists at the Chai Chet which enhanced our stay.
We would recommend the resort to friends and families wanting a quiet resort with amazing staff off the tourist trail.
