“Don't go there, under no circumstances!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2010

We had made a booking via internet for three nights, but when we arrived there and saw the place, immediately were disappointed. We had asked for a nice room as we wanted to stay for two weeks, yet when we were shown to the Beach Pool Villa we had booked, there was a full dustbin at the entrance, in the living room, all there was to see were two stained matrasses leaning against the wall. The bedroom had two beds with a kind of sinthetic bedsheets and the place smelled of mould. The bathroom and toilet were relatively clean but no tiles on the wall. The separate shower was abominable.
All we saw there was very run down. Not even in our hippie days back in India had we seen a more run down place.
All we did was ask for internet access, looked up other hotels on Koh Chang and immediately went to see "The Chill Hotel" were we moved straightaway and spent a lovely holiday.
If we had a lot of money, we'd buy the place, kick out the unfriendly and lazy staff, kick down the whole resort and build a nice hotel, which is what the really lovely location deserves.

Beautiful resort at the end of Kai Bae Beach, perfectly situated and far away from the noise but still close enought to reach everything on the island. We (two adults and three children aged 5,9,13) had a basic but huge family bungalow with a beautiful view over the bay. Even though we stayed there for 4 weeks the children (and the adults) never got bored, we were swimming (two great pools with a stunning view and a perfect beach for children), canoeing, fishing or simply having fun. There is a relaxed atmosphere all over the place, a fine restaurant and we enjoyed every second we stayed there thanks to the warm, friendly and caring staff.
It's a true tropical paradise and we will definately come back!

We booked this resort for 4 nights after seeing it on the 'iamkohchang' website.

Firstly I have to say the location is fantastic, a great beach, perfect for kids and we couldn't fault it for that.

We booked a pool villa, to get the two rooms as we had a 10 year old and 2 year old with us.

The hotel provided a cot, great, but the extra bed for my son was a stained mattress on the floor in the 'living room' that was devoid of any other furniture other than a tv.

Same for the bedroom, no furniture, nothing to sit on. I had come to expect the two single beds set side by side for a double, but it winds the wife up no end.

The whole bungalow 'feel' was rustic, I could have understood this if they were 15 years old but they were built last year. A poor attention to finish and a lack of comforts leave this accommodation as a struggling two star, when with a bit of effort and even less finance it would have been somewhere to return to.

On the second morning the already poor breakfast experience was deteriorated further by filthy knives and forks, cold eggs and dirty tables.

We checked out immediately and ended up at the Gajapuri. Night and day.

If I won the lotttery I'd return to Siam Bay, invest in it and kick the staff up the back side, for gods sake, clean behind the window blinds....//..

We stayed here upon first arriving in Koh Chang and this hotel gets big marks for location. It's at the end of Kai Bae but in a more secluded, private area... very beautiful. The room was adequate but looked as if it could use some more attention concerning maintenance and general upkeep. Breakfast was very basic and will likely disappoint some; the rest of the menu is highly recommended as we took several meals there. The staff was helpful but nothing extraordinary. I would recommend this hotel with hesitancy as I believe the cost was out of line with the services. Not a good deal by any means but not a hotel to completely write off either.

We wanted to stay four night during new year on a four weeks Asia tour. We arrived from the small island Ko Kood where we stayed in a very simple bungalow and were looking forward to the new luxury hillside Bungalows.

The bungalow itself wasn't that bad but the whole atmosphere and behaviour of the staff was terrible. We and our luggage got totally wet during the boat trip because of hard rain. Whne we arrived noone really cared or offered hot tea or towels, some person not english speaking, showed us our bungalow - not cleaned, no fresh linen or towels and we had to wait in the rain (still wet) for nearly one hour. The bungalow was still not very clean, but we were glad to take a hot shower.

The beach was ok, the bungalow was huge, the view stunning but we looked at the even pricier pool villas and the pool was disgusting, really dirty!

We wanted to have breakfast the next morning but food looked so bad that we went to another place. During all the four weeks of our holidays (stying in much more simple places) we never felt that bad and unwelcome.

The only good thing, we cancelled one night to leave erlier and we didn't have to pay for that!

The place is definitely not worth the money and far away from the center of Kai Bae.

Don't go there!!!

We had a family bungalow for 10 days over Xmas 2009 and would never go back!
Poor food,dreadful service,room and bathroom not very clean,and a complete lack of interest from the staff!
Most of the staff are from Cambodia and generally do not understand English or Thai.They also have not been trained to do the job and tend not to care either.
The Thai supervisors do not speak Cambodian and are also not trained to do their jobs.
The highlight of our stay was the repeated burning of rubbish next to the bungalows!
