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.

My wife and I planned to spend 3 nights here in one of the Cottages, and ended up just spending 1 night. While the view was incredible it did come with some definite kinks. If you get a cottage room it is one bed in the middle of a room with a mosquito net. Our room also came with a large Iguana in the room the spent the night pooping on us. If you are into the adventurous lifestyle this may be the place for you. The people were very nice and when we told them it was a little much for us they gave us a refund and sent us next door where there were nicer rooms with ac. Overall a neat experience but only good for one night.

Cliff Cottage is a haven on Koh Chang. Away from the over crowded tourist filled area, on the south coast of the island it really is a place to escape and relax. We stayed in one of the aircon rooms and it was perfect! The best bed so far out of 6 weeks in Asia, so comfortable. Great bathroom, clean and separated shower! The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels. We had 4 nights booked and ended up staying 8 we loved it so much.

We hardly left the area as Cliff Cottage also have an amazing bar/restuarant and we ate there for every single meal out of our stay. Highly recommend the homemade chicken burger if you want a break from Asian food, but equally the Thai menu is awesome: green curry and phad thai very tasty. Have the banana pancakes for breakfast, great (as are the banana smoothies!) basically everything we ate was awesome!

The staff are always smiling, very friendly and the place has a great atmosphere, family run with the children, pugs and cats saying hello. Plus the fact it's in it's own little bay so you have a perfect view of the sea. sofas and hammocks are really relaxing and nice selection of books to borrow too!

When we thought it couldn't get any better this happened...the day to leave finally arrived and we set off at 6am for our minivan trip back to Bangkok with the same company we arrived with (got return tickets-called 2 days before to book seats and arrange pick up). We waited but the minivan never showed, we had issues on the way to Koh Chang and hoped this wouldn't happen on the return as had a flight booked for 5pm. We ended up getting a taxi back to Cliff Cottage to think of a new plan,use wifi etc. thinking we would have to cancel our flight,call insurance company etc. But thanks to Shaun's quick thinking and generosity, we were able to get to the ferry in time with a ride to the port, while Shaun and his team negotiated our minibus tickets back to the city. We made the flight with time to spare, and it wouldn't have been possible without the help of the Cliff Cottage staff.

They gave 200% to serve us even after we had paid, which speaks volumes of just how genuine and excellent their services are: not to mention having one of the rare, completely unspoilt, super quiet corners of Koh Chang for relaxing and certainly not for 'partying'. Thank you so much again for helping us out and of course for the superb accommodation, food and smiles! Faultless!

It's location is beautiful right next to the water. I have a view of the pier from my bed! There is no Internet in the rooms only in the restaurant/reception area but it isn't a bad thing because again you are sat overlooking the sea and can hear the constant sound of waves crashing! There were constantly ants in my room and on the first night a few beetles and a gecko too. And the bedding wasn't the cleaning with what looked like blood on the sheet. If you want to relax it is ideal, it isn't great for sightseeing as it is far away from everything. The pier is a good 25 minute walk away even though you can see it across the water!

It's pleasant enough here but I won't be staying again due to the far out location.

So far our trip to Koh Chang has been pleasant, unfortunately weather conditions are not. We have booked into an aircon bungalow with a glorious view of Bang Bao Bay and the fishermans pier. An idealic secluded spot away from the hussle and bussle. Our room is freshly painted with comfortable beds , clean quality linen, a hot shower in ensuite, a refridgerator, and large walk in wardrobe with a safety deposit box. We have a small terrace which looks directly to the resorts private wooden pier. Toilet paper,soap,soft towels are provided. The staff are friendly, if a little laid back, so dont expect 5 * service , but it is always with a smile and MAI PEN RAI (no problem) attittude. The bar/ restaurant has fabulous views over its own private bay, hammocks, sofas, a book share, tour bookings, free wifi & reception. A very comfortable social area. Well done so far !

Room Tip: I am told the huts are really basic, Shared bathrooms, located at bottom of the hill. If you can aff...
