Nice pool and view in one of the nicest places on the island, but did not like the quality of the fruits shakes ( are not real fruit on it) the menu instead is really good! I tried a nice salad and tomato soup!

Hi Happy to hear you liked our place. Sorry to hear you had an issue with the fruit shakes: All our fruit shakes and frozen Daiquiris and Margaritas use 100% real fruit and nothin artificial. I'll show you on your next visit. Stay safe

Anyone can visit this bar and use the pool and sunbeds for free, before wandering across the beautiful almost empty beach to the sea. The bar has plenty of food and drink, served in a very formal way. Our thoughts about it changed mid-afternoon when it became quite crowded, particularly with groups of men who we felt, doubtless mistakenly, looked like crooks on vacation.

Hey Thanks for the great review. The people you encountered that afternoon are the Koh Chang Beach Cricket Team, playing beach cricket at Shambhala.

The good things first:
+ the beach bar offers a very nice and chilled atmosphere
+ the staff is very friendly and helpful
+ the pool is nice and cooling in hot weather times
+ there are many activities available, e.g. billard, SUP, volleyball (every Thursday is a cricket game in the afternoon)
+ food is good
+ value for money is ok
+ we passed nice relaxing pool days with our teens

What to notice:
- the location is a bit offroad, i.e. taxi drivers charged a bit more

steer clear of this over rated place....Beer was served to me warm so i asked for ice and an insulated cover for the bottle.....they had none,
We took a dip in the pool and it was missing tiles and it needed maintenance , water was far from clean. I spent a total of ten minutes and realised this place was not desireable.

I'm not sure who I feel more sorry for, the guests who come across this women or the staff who have to put up with her. Recently Siam Royal View (which this bar is part of) has employed this German woman, at first I thought she was just there for high season but I've now seen her in low season so it seems she’s a permanent stain.

I understand a bar is a capitalist venture and has to make money. But I was not thirsty, and when I arrive as a couple to a bar that is less than 25% full I don't think it is unreasonable to sit with my partner whilst she drinks her drink. But this isn’t acceptable to Katrina. Every person must drink. I’ve never encountered this policy anywhere else in Thailand. I’m not sure whether a child/toddler might be yelled at to drink something. I’m not sure what might happen if the person not drinking walked a few yards away to sit on the beach instead of on Siam Royal View land. The point is that there’s a line between pandering to capitalism and not being an as*****. She should be put in an office away from the public because she has no people skills. She's already prompted another 1-star review.

We walked off as they were preparing my partner's drink as I won't give my custom to any place that speaks to me with contempt. She didn't like this and had the audacity to tell me to go back to my country. She is being about as un-thai as it is possible to be, doesn't even speak Thai, yet it is me who must leave Thailand.

Discovered by accident on a walk and was very pleased. Great location by a quiet beach with pool side service and good wifi (always a bonus). Comfy beach chairs next to the pool and a short walk to the beach and oh so warm waters. Ordered tea for about 90Bht.

Whoever designed this place deserves an award. The attention to detail in cocktail concoction, the layout of the pool and swim up bar along with the extremely comfortable lounge areas with a teepee. The view is of an extremely quiet bay directly on the beach with a lagoon to the left. We ended up coming back to this bar every day because of the friendly staff and amazing atmosphere. If I ever plan a wedding or large event, I would use this venue for sure. Keep it up!!

P.S. I would love to share photos, but we had so much fun each time we were there, I completely forgot to get any. That's how much I can recommend this place!

This is a lovely beach front bar and restaurant with a pool ( what more could you ask for). The food and drinks are very well priced and the staff are very professional. The setting is just superb, white sandy beach and blue sea. Relax on the sun beds , swim up to the bar or sit and have a meal it's best place we visited in koh Chang. A little tricky to find but if you head out of town over the hills towards the ferry there is a petrol station on the right, stop there and turn left and keep going to the beach front. You will love it. A real gem. Thanks.
