Banpu Koh Chang Resort
Ranked #37 of 115 Ko Chang B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 18, 2011

My girlfriend and I (aged 26 and 28) stayed 5 days at Banpu in january 2011 in a superior room. Here are our pros and cons:

Pros:
- Nice swimming pool
- Nice balcony
- Overall cozy resort with beautiful garden and huts.
- OK breakfast buffet
- If you cross the street from the resort, there is a good restaurant

Cons:
- Beach not very good at this end
- Staff was a mixed experience; some was very friendly, some looked unhappy and grumpy, and some was over exited (and almost annoying)
- Restaurant a bit expensive compared to what you get.
- Poor sleep quality: When staying in a superior room, you can easily hear sound from your neighbours TVs through the thin walls . You can also hear the quite busy road.
- Wifi not free
- Room quite dark.
- The bathroom sometimes smelled like a sewer.

We stayed in a Superior Room (the cheapest option), which costs about 3000 baht/night. Compared to this relative high price, what you get and what you pay does not add up. If the price was about half, we would have been satisfied.

we had a superior room if you can book bungalows, a nice small resort right on the beach.
plenty of lounge chairs around the pool. breakfast was buffet. just outside the resort is a mini market and lots and lots of good restaurants. try to pick another month as it rained alot. it came down in buckets. be careful with some of the resorts in white sand because they are up the hill from this resort, you have to be mountian goat some hotels have has about 200 stairs going down to the beach. dont eat at the mexican restaurant is was awful.

I scoured websites looking for the perfect place to plop on Koh Chang and happily discovered Banpu, on White Sands Beach. My husband and I stayed in a beach bungalow, and enjoyed our stay at this beautiful resort. Unlike other nearby resorts, this place is very intimate -- not too many rooms, and the clientele is quiet. Best of all, it is located in the middle of the beach where all White Sand Beach BBQs are held in the evening, so you can walk to them, but it is cordoned off so it feels like you are on a private beach. The breakfast is wonderful -- eggs & waffles made to order, fresh fruit, yogurt and some Thai specialties. Book in advance on agoda,com, a service of priceline. We got a beach bungalow for $95 a night.
