I went to Ko Chang for a week of relax and found Cliff Cottage to be the perfect place to stay. About 5-10 mins walk from Bang Bao's pier you arrive at the reception in the restaurant of the guest house that is located directly on a little bay overlooking the sea. Take off your shoes, sit on one of the couches or chill in a hammock. Try the curries and enjoy the sound of the waves and the view. On the hill behind the restaurant you either find little huts with shared bathrooms or rooms with aircon and private bathroom. I opted for the room and payed 700b/night. The rooms are spacious, they have a little wardrobe room, a fridge, the warm shower bathroom and aircon. Every morning the bed was made, the towel changed and the bin emptied. And I could look out on Bang Bao. The place is really quiet and peaceful - I slept well.
And if you get enough of quiet and peaceful you can walk to Bangbao for some seafood and shopping or to the next white sand beach 4 km down the road. You can rent a motorbike for 200b and explore the islan on your own. Or you can join a snorkeling/diving group and go out on a boat. You can go to one of the serious elephant camps and do some trekking. The staff at Cliff Cottage can help with the organization of everything.
So if you don't need to have the white sand beach right outside your room and you are not looking for the big party next door, than this is definitely a place to visit and enjoy.
