“A quiet getaway in Koh Chang”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Rainy season stays are always a bit of a gamble, but we found an amazing place to recharge the battery. Nirvana is surrounded by quiet, green, and comfort. The restaurant is absolutely stunning, it was lovely to wake to breakfast on the sea every day. The staff are very warm, in particular, "Ning" was incredibly helpful, friendly, and kind.

The nearby fishing village is a great place to shop and lunch at. We took to "Buddha View" restaurant, and recommend it highly.

Nirvana is exactly the type of resort you'd want for a quiet time. We stayed at in #4 Delux Sea View Cottage, and would come back to it again.

Room Tip: #4 Delux Sea View!

The architecture is beautiful, and the setting is truly calm and away from the backpackers and clusters of resorts. We were here during rainy season which made the hills around the bay so green and lush in the backdrop of the little village on stilts. The swimming pools are deep which is rare in Asia; you can actually dive into these ones. Also the staff are sweet, and there are couple of cat families residing here so you can have pet kittens who follow you from breakfast to the hammocks around the bar.

I recommend having a motorbike to go to the beaches nearby and getting around the island a little, and if you are walking to the restaurants in the area bring the flashlight provided to get back. It's not easy to light the path with 2 cell phones once it gets dark. There are very little lights along the road, and this is rather far from the urban patches.

Just wonderful.Quiet, peaceful place in the middle of nowhere! Remoted from the busy area of bars,located at the end of the island but worth the trip. Had the jungle room, little wooden terrace lost in the green! Room decorated with taste, hudge bath tub,comfortable bed and pillows. DVD player and dvds available at the front desk for rainy time! Great swimming pools, one facing the sea the other one is the jungle. Really nice and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast, top view at the restaurant. Run for it!

Just divine. Massive spacious bungalows, lovely pool, gorgeous beachfront location with sea views, hammocks to have a cocktails in. Walkable to bang bar pier for food. Amazing breakfast.

If only every holiday was as gorgeous and relaxing as nirvana

Room Tip: You can't go wrong. All lovely

I stayed here for 12 nights in a bay view bungalow and it was lovely! The room was very beautiful and had everything one needs to feel at home. The monkey family on my porch every morning and evening were very amusing companions. I also loved the pool opposite the reception where I could read my book in peace and enjoy a drink (the guy serves a very good g&t) and a snack. I had dinner at Tantra most of the evenings and I really liked it, great fusion food and good wines. I did not like the village and only went there to top up my phone card at the 7-Eleven but the resort has all you need really. At least I hardly felt the need to leave the place, except when for three whole days the internet was down due to heavy storms and nobody seemed to know when the problem would be fixed. Not the resort's fault of course, but still a pain. Reason I can't give 5 stars is the fact that I was not very happy with the cleaning, a bit more effort could have been taken in cleaning the bathroom and a bit more use of the broom in the bedroom. But all in all, still and definitely a place to recommend.

Room Tip: I loved the bay view room, gorgeous views on the water and the village on the other side of the bay.

After a very long time of trying to pick the perfect place to stay for our first trip to Koh Chang we decided on nirvana resort. You get a little deterred reading all the bad comments mixed with good ones so I didn't know what to expect. Let me just add that we are a couple who speaks fluent Thai so any language barriers we wouldn't be aware of. But we got lost quite a few times before we made it to the resort and although we were frequently calling (and probably annoying) the front desk, they were very patient with us.

When we finally got there it was all smiles and everyone was very helpful with our rooms, luggage, introduction to the area and even helping with plans for our whole trip there. Being used to staying in various types of places, we made sure to buy enough snacks for the room (call us cheap and or frugal but we don't like spending 100 baht on a bag of peanuts anywhere) which was a good idea because the room service menu is VERY small and only open during certain time frames.
Also the bar closed quite early so even if we wanted a beer we found it was hard to find.

The room was great!! So worth the price. The bathroom was clean and bath tub was probably one of my favourite parts of the trip. They even had a DVD player and DVDs. We ended up getting a jungle room and I was a little disappointed before I arrived because I wanted a good view. But the jungle room was still a great atmosphere.

The salt water pool on the bottom level was always occupied but not obnoxiously full and the bar was open the whole time. We really loved the jungle pool with water fall because it was completely secluded except for some monkeys. Although I have been told it is used for scuba diving training at times.

The hotel staff helped us a lot to plan day trips but I do have to say they didn't offer us the best experiences, you should always find out from trip advisor. The trips usually have buses to pick you up and drop you off.

Bang bao is walking distance but pitch black at night. We had our private car which was much easier. If you don't have your own car I would recommend getting a bike ONLY if youre an experienced rider because the Koh Chang roads in general are scary. Around bang bao and the resort was fine but anywhere else got quite intimidating!

The breakfast was really quite good but dining at the tantra restaurant in the evening was slightly underwhelming. If you are going to definitely only order the fusion specials because any Thai food can be found better and cheaper in bang bao village.

Oh and don't forget a drink at the sunset deck. Absolutely amazingly chill.

All in all a great holiday. Would definitely go back. And I absolutely fell in love with bang bao.

The place is a little bit outside of tourist-life and its great - at night you can hear the jungle and in the morning monkeys come to your porch for banana breakfast. Amenities and service are very good, really 4-star stanadrd.

You can go by hotel car-transfer to the beach or to the village to dine out - it's 5 minute ride and free. You can walk there also - 15 min. The beach at the hotel is not Ok for swimming, but pools are great. You can snick to the rock pool alone when its dark - it's amazing to swim in the heart of the jungle under the stars!

Take a jungle walk that goes through the hotel area, you can find a sun-set terrace and take great photos.

I didn't enjoy the restaurant much, those in the bay, 5 min drive are so much better - and more affrodable either. Try their thai specialities and sea-food first then for a difference try something French at Nirvana and come back to Thai food again)

Room Tip: All rooms are really large and have a gigantic stone bath, don't overpay for a bungalow. Save so...
