We stayed four nights and we couldn't be happier. The place is beautiful, the rooms are cozy and private with their own bathroom. The swimming pool is amazing and it has wonderful views of the beach and sea! Eveline and her team and extraordinary helpful, kind, friendly and happy!!!! I really can't wait to go back!!!!

Spent 3 nights here in a bungalow with AC. Bungalow is nice and has bathroom that is outdoors. Great view of the water and pool. Everything is really clean and the common area is well equipped with a restaurant, bar, places to sit and play games, pool table, etc. Staff is extremely helpful. The resort is a bit off the...

We had a lovely time with you guys - there's nothing like wine and board games to pass a stormy day :) We passed on your compliment to Dee, our bartender, who was pleased you enjoyed his mojitos. Have fun on the rest of your (extremely sunny) travels and maybe we can welcome you back to Elephant Bay one day! More

Spent 6 days there in late June . A very cruisey location with awesome evenings having a few drinks overlooking the sea/sunset. June not the best month to be there as the weather is wet, a lot, but I knew that beforehand. Has its benefits, less tourists! Staff were friendly, food was nice and fast service. Bikes for hire everywhere,... More

We stayed here for one night. The location is nice and quiet but you can easily rent a scooter to take you round the island to explore. The pool is very clean and offers a beautiful view overlooking the horizon. The place is owned/managed by a Dutch man and his daughter. Both were very helpful and approachable. The food is... More

Elephant bay resort is stunning. It's got a chilled out, hippy vibe so is perfect to just lie back in a hammock and enjoy the view. The staff are all very friendly, we met some of the owners as well as the bar and housekeeping staff. Food is very reasonably priced and yummy! You could go to elephant bay and... More

We came to Koh Chang looking for a little bit of relaxation after a busy few months travelling! We chose Elephant Bay based on good reviews and we weren't disappointed.

Hello to you both. The porridge (with bananas) is one of my go-to breakfasts too! We’re thrilled you found our place to your liking. We have taken great care in designing the resort in a way to encourage people to mingle, while also having many chill-out spots for those who want some alone time. Since you enjoyed playing pool you... More

This place was exactly what I had hoped for. Somewhere tranquil, beautiful and with a lovely crowd of like-minded travellers. I credit Eveline and her Father for instilling such a friendly atmosphere that fosters a good relationship between the guests and staff of the resort.

Hi Rebecca, What a lovely review! It was great meeting you and Mike! You're quite right, we have purposefully cultured an environment which is friendly, fun, and laid-back, as it tends to attract great people just like yourself. Go-Go and Charlie miss you too. They are both doing well, guarding the resort as always while taking naps and lounging around!... More

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. To temper expectations - this is not a luxury resort, but aimed at backpackers. Rooms are reasonably priced, they have a restaurant which serves great food, the pool is ideal, they have hammocks and are well situated for beautiful sunsets. It's about a 10 minute taxi to the lonely beach area with bars,... More

If you're after total relaxation, beautiful sunsets and excellent value for money than this is perfect. Comfortable, clean and unimposing. This resort has a lovely pool area and set amongst really well-kept gardens. Lots of hammocks to chill-out in and good food served whenever you want it. Rooms are clean and comfortable but very basic. Helpful and attentive staff. Great... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Elephant Bay Resort (EBR) is located south-west on the island of Koh Chang, in Bailan Bay. The resort has a big garden with lots of room to play sports such as volleyball and badminton, hang-out in one of the several hammocks or just enjoy the sun by the pool. It is both a place to be by yourself and to meet people. Moreover, the resort is surrounded by walls and with only one entrance and exit, will make your stay as relaxed and private as possible. All rooms are decorated in the same style, yet none are the same and they each have their own personality. The restaurant and bar area has a funky, colorful look and invites you to mingle with other guests. ... more   less
