“Paradise for quality music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

We have been staying in Paradise cottage already for 20 days... For us this is the best spot on island... Value for money... Our cottage is like our home with a lovely terrace
The launge area is fantastic with sunset view and hammocks ... Can spend full day lazing around over there...Also the music policy in place is amazing .... I have never heard such an amazing collection of music like here...
Tumbs Up Keng :)
Will deffinatlly recommend it to my friends !

We stayed 4 nights in this place and loved it! It`s quit and near Lonely beach and restaurants and bars. The staff is friendly and helpfull and the cottages clean and basic but very nice. The food is good and a view to kill. You can swim into the sea but there is no real beach and there are some rocks. We had a good time at the busy party on Halloween,it was great! We go back there if we ever visit Koh Chang again.

We originally wanted to stay here for a week and had booked upfront from back home.

The place looks very stylish at the beachside with all the concrete and the little huts to relax. However, everywhere you see that either there is still work in progress or its just not finished properly. For 700 baht a night thats ok though...in the evening the atmosphere there is certainly nice.

The bungalows are not that great in comparison we thought. I have to agree with previous reviews, that the sheets and towels were not clean (like acceptably clean for backpackers) and the hut itself is very, very basic. A bit like a basement room with all that concrete from the inside.

What made us move out after 1 night is that we could not swim in front of the huts. The walk to the neighbouring lonley beach is roughly 15 min. and was too long for our personal liking.
(It was known to us before booking, so all transparent but once you're there you turn lazy.)


The service seemed ok, though we had some difficulties ordering breakfast. The set breakfast is quite basic and consist of bacon and eg. As a vegetarian I found it a bit irritating, that a fruit musli instead would be charged extra. (We settled this in the end but it was miniscule and still felt strange.)

So all in, not a bad place but not the best for swimming and that was important to us. We found some lovely huts directly at the beach for 350 a night. (Siam beach cottages).

We would not come again but check it out yourself.

Room Tip: Check the sheets!

I get the feeling that the average reviews for this property come from those that expect an impeccable resort for 400-700 BHT. You won't get that here, but for what Paradise Cottage is, it is a great place to spend as long as you can afford to be away from work/school. The atmosphere is very relaxed and peaceful, which is different from the beachfront bungalows/resorts directly on Lonely Beach.

Paradise Cottages is at the end of the Lonely Beach and requires a 10 minute walk to the actual beach. However, it's an easy walk and allows you the additional peace and quiet. There are 5-6 small verandas with tables and hammocks where you can spend the entire day lounging, eating, and drinking. (Beware of the ants in some of the verandas. This isn't the U.S. so don't expect them to spray for bugs. That's up to you). The food off the menu was excellent and I encourage you to try the coconut shake. The mixed drinks also appeared to be about 40 BHT cheaper than most other resorts/hotels we stopped at for a drink. Bonus.

The rooms will vary depending on what you reserve. The 700 BHT sea front rooms have A/C and a small balcony. During very hot weather periods (at or above 34C) you might want the A/C. We stayed in the 400 BHT fan room and were completely comfortable as the weather was in the 30-32 range. These rooms also offer a small view of the water as they are behind and slightly off-centered from the sea view rooms. Both of the rooms mentioned above come with a free breakfast, which was decent. The 200 BHT rooms are small wooden cottages in the third row. Didn't look into these. Don't think you get a free breakfast with them either.

The staff was extremely helfpul, especially the owner, Julia. She'll be more than happy to help you with any requests (outings, taxi rides, motorbikes, etc).

Note the kitchen is open at 8am for breakfast and closes at 8 or 9pm. There is also free wi-fi at the resort.

Highly recommended!

I couldn't agree more with the other reviews that say this place is nice, yes, but with a little bit more it could be awesome.

On the positive side, location is great, especially seaside bungalows, very quiet and just by the sea, the bar is nice, food is good and not very expensive, breakfast is good too.

On the downside, sheets and towels were not as clean as they should be, there was only one plug for the whole room and no space for hanging clothes, the bathroom was so-so and staff could have been more helpful.

All in all, good for the price, but a tiny bit more would make it great.
