“Avarage hotel far from the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I stayed at Ramayana with my husband for 3 nights in the end of March 2013. It was a nice resort with a beautiful garden and friendly staff. We weren't very impressed by the rooms though. The beds were extremely hard and the bathrooms were tiny. The rooms and the linens smelled like mold. The first day we got a plate of fruit to our rooms. We didn't eat from it but the housekeeper didn't take it out in three days so in the end it was totally moldy. There is no free wi-fi in the rooms.

The service in the restaurant was very poor. Don't get the Pad Thai!

It's very far from the beach but the resort runs a shuttle bus hourly.

If you don't have too high expectations this is a fine resort, we just didn't think we got value for our money. There are many nicer resorts on Koh Chang at the same rate.

Could do with a bigger sign or at least one not partially obscured by plants as our driver missed the hotel twice. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Quiet location means not easy to walk around to a nearby restaurant at night, but easy to flag down a taxi. Quiet location does mean a tranquil environment, perfect if you would like a nice little holiday away from the hustle and bustle of a city or a party beach. Nice garden view from the room balcony/terrace, makes you feel like you're in a tropical jungle.

Breakfast is average, not a lot of choices, but still okay for what it's worth. The private beach at their sister hotel is great, and the shuttle to the beach runs hourly. We also booked an elephant trek and a full-day snorkeling trip with the hotel, which turned out great. They can also arrange transportation for your onward travel via minivan.

We booked through Booking.com which had great rates at the time. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I had the impression the hotel is adjacent to the forest before I arrived but its between the main road and coast. The hotel rooms are lovely with good TV channels and good facilities. Having said that our telephone had to be replaced, the tap dripped and was not fixed during the stay, and the TV died on day 2 and was replaced with a substandard TV that made funny noises from time to time. Had the feeling the hotel may be short staffed. Lovely staff member 'Kai' at restaurant had a big smile but was there breakfast lunch and dinner every day.
The grounds are lovely but the resort lacks a focal point as the pool is nice but small and the gym is just OK.
Breakfast is excellent and meals in general are cheap at the hotel. Ask for Thai style if you want it as then you get better meals that are not sweet and bland.
Facilities at The Dewa are excellent with 50 metre plus pool and lovely beach access. Pick up back to hotel seemed to be haphazard.
Few shops nearby but you can walk to the odd restaurant.

the rooms are really nice indeed, and the staff helpful. but that was it. The rooms are too expensive considering you dont have really access to the beach. The booking.com announcement about shuttle service is a joke, because it is only served hourly! even if you take a local cab, you have to go a while. And there is no internet access in the room!! None at all, this is really not modern standard, even a cheap guest house for 500 baht on lonely beach provides internet in room. You have to go to the reception for using wifi, and it is not in the near of the room! The restaurant is not recommendable as well. For this Price you can get a much much better hotel at white sand beach or kaebi beach. Book this hotel only if you want to stay 24 hours in the hotel room and watch TV

You can't go wrong staying at such a beautiful hotel set in a lush tropical setting. I stayed in the Ravana suite which is gorgeous and lots of attention to detail. Very nice pool, restaurant was good you can eat for as little as 60 baht if you like. Staff are extremely helpful and the grounds are meticulously clean. Good Internet signal in the lobby, lots of tours you can easily book at the desk. You can walk to nearby restaurants or roam around the beach area which is a short 5 minute shuttle to their sister hotel. I had a very relaxing stay, would absolutely come back here. A real gem!

Ramayana is a good choice for couples or families looking for a quiet place to stay. The property is set back in the jungle and has a nice pool in the middle with a bar. All the rooms I saw had a nice patio that overlooks the garden that the property is set in. There is no beach directly on the property but there is a shuttle that runs every hour to their sister property, "The Dewa", that has a beach. They also run shuttles to the White Sand Beach which is the main town with restaurants and bars. They have scooters for rent as well but they're pricey compared with what you can get at other places on the island. You pay for convenience. Don't pick this place if you're looking for a good fitness center. The spa, according to my girlfriend, was also pretty mediocre. The water pressure in the shower was minimal and it was only lukewarm.

Room Tip: The junior suite is not as big as you would expect from a junior suite but it's still a very nic...
