We stayed 2 nights last week. The resort located by the beach and away from busy mainroad which we find the place quiet and relax. We loved the spacious garden area. The Room was spacious and well functioning. Staff are very friendly and helptul. Food are delicious.
All and all, we loved the place and will return in future

Room Tip: Recommend Pool access room.

We're currently staying at the Panviman Koh Chang and are very happy with both the hotel and the service.

The resort has a gentile 'Thai' style about it and is set in nicely landscaped grounds, on a lovely beach.There is an intimate feel, with an air of tranquility and, although the hotel is fairly busy, there is never a 'crowded' feeling, even at breakfast. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with the 'old school' service often found only in well established hotels. Nonetheless, everything still seems to run like clockwork. One gets the impression this is a well oiled machine but personal service is still the keynote.

When we arrived the reception team were very welcoming, helpful and informative.

The rooms are very attractively furnished, well equipped and comfortable, with a large flat screen TV. The cable TV has two or three movie channels in English and a couple of cartoon channels for the kids, as well as Thai and other International offerings. One of the 'features' is a very big mosaic tiled bath which our son loved. Also, it must be said that the separate shower is powerful and spacious, with precise control of the hot and cold flow - sounds picky but I have stayed in many hotels where showering was an ordeal, just trying to maintain a temperature between cold and scalding! I do think that it would be a very useful addition to the bedroom facilities if the hotel provided an iron and ironing board. The maid service is excellent. the hotel uses quality toiletries which are never left to run out. Every time we've gone to breakfast the room is 'made up' when we get back.

We found both the Thai and International food of a good standard and there is a decent selection at the Breakfast Buffet.

There is a 'Buy one get one free Happy Hour' at 'Rocky Bar' between 5 and 7 p.m and the current House Red wine is very drinkable and available by the glass, carafe or bottle; I haven't tried the white wine.

There are three pools, a large one for all guests adjoining the beach and two smaller versions that are reserved for guests staying in the adjacent rooms.

Overall, the Panviman Koh Change offers a genuinely relaxing experience and a feeling of being spoiled at reasonable prices. We would heartily recommend this resort and will definitely return.

Room Tip: If privacy is high on your list, then a room adjacent to one of the two smaller pools would suit ver...

We stayed at the Panviman in Koh Chang for Christmas and New Year back in 2008 to 2009. Had the best holiday! Beautiful room with super comfy bed, loved the Bathroom with the waterfall Bath.
The Food was great, really nice fresh food. Perfect all round. Friendly staff.
Dream of going back.

We stayed at the Panviman last weekend and it was just heavenly. Although the first day that we arrived it was rainning almost all day, I thought my weekend getaway was ruined. The pool access room was definitely a steal during this season. We jumped in the pool when ever we got a break from the rain. The second day was perfect. It was sun sand and sea all day.

The room was a bit tired but it certainly have a Thai vintage charm to it. It was big and spacious. The bathroom was beautifully designed. Service at the reception and restaurant was great. Language barrier can sometime be a problem, but everyone was eager to help. It was a good thing that we brought our own car. It was great to see the island and it's natural setting.


Tips, don't be afraid to bargain with the local vendirs, but do it tastefully. I got a steal from a great Koh Chang Tshirt for my friends.

I have stayed at a number of good hotels in Thailand but Panviman Ko Chang must rate as the best ever. A perfect beach, a perfect pool, perfect gardens and perfect rooms. The Breakfast was great as was dinner. The rooms are large and the pool access rooms are a delight. If you want to spoil yourself then Panviman is the place.

Room Tip: A pool access room is a special treat.

Panviman Hotel was wonderful. Room enormous, wonderful bathroom. We were there in April. Quite quiet, but enough life. Beach was fantastic and very empty. Pool was also great. Hotel provided shuttle to the main Road and anywhere else we wanted to go, but quite frankly was so nice that we just stayed put. Went to bar next door to hotel which was fine for snack. Hotel impeccably kept. Wonderful buffet breakfast. A great place to chill. The only complaint was bed linen. Wasn't soft enough and sheets weren't big enough so they put two sheets on and I was aware of where sheets joined. Overall a great stay.

Room Tip: The pool rooms looked very nice. I actually travelled here in April 2012.

The website is great but the reality is spectacular. I spent four nights at Panviman Koh Chang and never bothered to leave the property. Everything I needed was provided for at the resort. My room was huge as was the bathroom. I stayed in a pool access room. This means three rooms share one lovely good sized pool. Even so, each room feels very private and the pool side covered patio gives both shade and privacy. The restaurant is quite good and I think the service was just fine. My room was spotless. The landscaping is gorgeous and the beach bar has a great view of the water.
Paul, the manager and I struck up a conversation on the way to the airport as I was leaving for Bangkok. He went out of his way to be kind and helpful and even rode into the city with me and made sure I got on the right train and metro to my hotel. In fact, he called my hotel to make sure I got there safely!
I've babbling about about the Panviman ever since I got home. It was a terrific reort and Paul the manager is a gentleman and obviously a great manager.
I hope someday I can come back for a longer visit.

Room Tip: By all means choose the pool accessible rooms!
