“Tropical tranquility”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

This is a "classic" Thai style resort in White Sands. This was one of the first resorts on Koh Chang. It has been well maintained and upgraded over the years. One of the few hotels easily visible from the beach road. It is located right on the ocean, amidst a lush tropical garden, and has a swimming pool. There is a large shady grass lawn with lounge chairs overlooking the ocean. Our room had a beautiful view from our picture window and balcony over the garden to the ocean only 30 meters away. This is not a swimming beach but it is very beautiful and tranquil.

The swimming beach of white sand is about a 500 meter walk. There are numerous bars and restaurants close by, but the rooms are very quiet. There is a 7-11 next door. Rooms are very clean, ours had two double beds, average size room, air conditioned with ample hot water showers.

There is no regular restaurant but they do serve a complimentary breakfast which we found to be surprisingly good and mostly western food.

Our decision to come to Koh Chang was spontaneous so we had no time to research or book accommodation. Travel fatigue precluded much "shopping" around.

All in all we found it very attractive and relaxing but perhaps a bit expensive compared to other options. While we enjoyed it and have no complaints, I agree with other reviewers in suggesting that there might be better value choices. Pre plan and book your stay on the internet. The expensive nature of this island, coupled with its size, and the "hidden" locations of most accommodation mean this is not really the kind of destination where you can easily find good value upon arrival.

Room Tip: Always ask to see your room first.

Plaloma Cliff Resort overlooks the Gulf of Thailand. The grounds are very nice, good pool and wonderful green space looking onto the water. The rooms are a good size and clean the views are spectacular. The breakfast in good and location only 5 to 10 minute walk to White beach. The only negative is WiFi; available only in the lounge area and if there are a few users you are out of luck. Good value resort.

We had a nice view from our room but that was it! We stayed one night only and found something better for way less with way more style, comfort and amenities! The two other places we stayed also had way better customer service. The breakfast was ok but other than the view I would recommend staying elsewhere for way less

That was very-very dirty room with bad smell. Sheets was dirty, bathroom.. Oh. Very-very bad room. That was awful night before we leave island. I will never come back to Plaloma! Plaloma hasn't beach. That's only stones! The nearest normal beach is situated in 15 min of walking. Not so far. Breakfast usual. Staff don't speak English, Russian. They don't know even simple phrases.

Don't waist your time with this excuse for a resort.. It's over priced, old, dirty, and they even charge for the water. The food sucks. Showers don't have hot water, swimming pool is dirty and full of chlorine.. Anywhere else has to be better....
