My husband and I and our daughter, her husband and two boys spent 10 days over Christmas at this resort and absolutely loved it. If you're looking for over crowded beaches and night life this is not the place for you. We're here from Canada and our daughter teaches here in Thailand so we were looking for some rest, relaxation and family time together. The owners Dieter and Su made sure we had everything we needed and then some. And their daughter (11 yrs) Manau was a delight. The staff were great. They all even took the time to wish me a happy birthday. We stayed up on the hill. The rooms were huge - some with kitchenttes - with big balconies overlooking the bay. It was beautiful. Loved waking up to the sun rising off on the horizon, and boats bobbing in the bay. The pool was lovely and we usually had it to ourselves as most guests were likely sailing or kayaking or touring. The food was incredible. Su is a great chef!! The garlic and pepper prawns were the best and my husband loved his prawn soup for breakfast. We would definitely go back although having been there once, maybe for a shorter period of time.

Room Tip: The view from the pier rooms was amazing but we preferred being up on the hill. On the pier it could...

My wife and I arrived in late October for a 1 night stay. We left after staying 6 nights and loved it. Dieter was a great host and organised everything we needed without fuss.
The food was sensational, staff excellent and the scenery breath taking and we met some lovely travellers as a bonus.
We needed to stay somewhere away from the tourist areas and found the perfect place to relax and just chill here at Dieter's slice of heaven.
We will be back.

We, my wife, my doughter (15) and me spend two lovely weeks here.
Everything we want to do, was organised by Dieter, who gave us good advisises for our time right at the beginning and who managed good prices for the scooters, fishermans-trip and so on....
When something in our Rooms was to repair, it was made as fast as possible, after he knew. We sure will come back and enjoy this lovely quiet place.
Thanks to Dieter and his team.

We stayed at Island View for three days at the end of may (rainseason).
We were the only guests stying there at the time and the whole eastcoast of Koh Chang is struggeling during rainseason.
The place is locaded on poles in the water and has a pool on land but we diden't use it or see it because we prefer the ocean.
The staff is friendly and the manager, a swiss man named Roland, are happy to help you with stuff to do and see when you are on the east coast.

The Positives:
Big and comfortable beds.
Aircon and fan in all rooms.
Hot water in the shower, nice bathrooms.
WIFI (even though it's to weak and slow).
Pool.
Free kayak.
Quiet.
Friendly staff.
They have a "help yourself"-policy with the beers and softdrinks in the fridge. Take one and write one up on your bill, pay when checkout.

The negatives:
A bit pricy for being the rainseason (900 baht/night) but then again we diden't bother to bargain with them.
The WIFI-connection is way to weak and slow. Tried to send an email with a 7mb attatchment but I had to give that up. But I think you might get a better speed and strengh if you stay close to the office.
There is no beach close to the place. But you can borrow a kayak for free and go to a small beach on an island only 20 minutes away. Or you can take your motorbike and drive to a beach a little bit further away.

Like most places in Thailand there are a hard competition for the customers so there are small groups of mafia trying to control the hotels, taxis, restaurants etc. Island View has some problem with their signs wich magicly gets torn down every now and then. But trust your map when going there. Yes you are supposed to go on a small walkway by the shore to get there.

I spend in total 3 weeks exploring the islands south of Koh Chang on my catamaran, being based at Island View Resort own pier gave me the best proximity to all the beautiful little Islands scattered around Koh Chang and in Salak Phet Bay . I really had the feeling of being away from the main tourist circus but enjoyed all the comforts of a modern living at the Island View Resort . The food is great, the staff super friendly and helpful, the accommodation very reasonably priced. If you love the water, sailing, kayaking , quick access to secluded beaches and unspoiled nature, I highly recommend Island View Resort as your base in Koh Chang. All kinds of interesting Day tours can easily be arranged from here. I'll be back soon for sure.

Room Tip: get the corner room on the pier or by the pool
