Reviewed March 23, 2013

We stayed in a fan bungalow for 3 nights. I feel I should have booked an air conditioned bungalow as it was very hot and I found it quite dark inside. However, aside from this, the Souk is lovely. Eddy and his family are great and very friendly. The food is nice. Try the yoghurt, fruit and muesli breakfast. It is huge!! Do not stay here of you want to go out in the evenings and party. It is really quiet on the east side of the island. Lovely!

Room Tip: Book an air conditoned bungalow

The Souk is a very small resort on the very quiet East coast of Koh Chang. Discerning tourists to Koh Chang are finding the west coast overdeveloped.
The Souk is family owned and fronted by Eddie who is a very laid back character.extremely friendly and always willing to help.he speaks excellent English which helps,.
The Bungalows are fairly basic but nice style ,some fan some air,right on the beach.
The restaurant is excellent ,very relaxed and the food is top class.as good as you get on Koh chang.

Room Tip: They are all front line really.

If you are looking for relaxed days and nights, no party-pumping music and really (!) good food this is your place to be. It is family run and very personal in atmosphere, therefor a small place with only 5 bungalows. These are clean, nice, stone-build round apartments with western style bathrooms, some open roof.
The amber looking beach is super nice and gets cleaned each day - kayaks and chairs are there for you to hang out.
The restaurant is above expectations - we stayed 9 days and never ordered the same dish twice - everything was superb.
Apart from the owners the staff diesnt speak English very well - which is not a minus as they make up with their friendliness.
At this beach, you are by yourself with the guests from Amber Sands Resort next door, all in all maybe max of 20 people.
On this side of the island is nothing such as more bars or nightlife, seven elevens etc. So you might want to have a scooter at some point to explore the island a bit. Eddie is always helpful to arrange things for you or gibe you a ride to the other beaches.
Next door at Amber Sands, a decent beach massage place offers thai massage at 350 baht.

If you dont know Koh Chang and youd like to party, book something on the other side of the island as the ride there is quite bumpy and you dont want to do that at night time.

Room Tip: There is only one bungalow AC but even at high season you dont really need this.

We got hooked up by our Bangkok travel agency to spend our last five days of Thailand in the souk resort,so we we're very curious.but we we're pleasantly surprised.beautiful bungalows right at the beach,with a very cosy warm atmosphere inside the room.don't expect the biggest luxuoury, but still every comfort you might need,is there.the owner Eddie,his wife,their very cute daughter and their staff take excellent care of their visitors,always at your service.even though he hotel is at he quiet side of the island,it's lovely there and Eddy didn't mind taking us with him to the other side.it's als possible to rent a kayak at the hotel and last but definitely not last,jou dan take a cooking class.this was really great for us, as we really Love the thai kitchen.we must say he food Eddy served is was he best in whole of Thailand.he's the man!! So definitely we would recommend tgis place (do try to go outside of the rainseason).kind greetings,pieter and marlies from belgium

We first discovered the Souk a couple of years ago but we only stopped in for a bite to eat as we were staying at another resort. We were so impressed with the food and the relaxed atmosphere that we decided to stay there this year and we really enjoyed it. Great place, great food, great atmosphere. We hope to stay again next year.

There are many restaurants on this Island and i have been to many of them. But the best foof I found in The Souk. Specially the sundried squid and beef - are exraordinay. The same i can say about the curries which they frepare fresh ( and you can taste it) like Gaeng Kiao Wan and Padt Thai are delicious ! The compromize to european customers is really great the fusion is working !

Do not expect a 4-star-resort; do not expect a brilliant white beach. It is what it is - very good value for little money. Nothing but a mattress & mosquito net & open air bathroom. All in good condition and very clean. 3reasoms we would go again: owned by a friendly family; Great Cocktails and  Food in Good atmosphere ; Sound of the Waves & Music. Very relaxed!
