“Very nice choice for peace and relaxation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012 via mobile

Very nice hotel, classy yet relaxed atmosphere. Nice and calm beach in the front of the hotel. Rooms skandinavian simple yet thai style, spacious. Good sound isolation. We enjoyed our stay. Hotel offers bbq seafood by the beach, firts class quality. Cooks know what they're doing both in western and thai kitchen.

Stayed March 2012

We stayed here for a couple of days on our first trip to Thailand. Koh Chang island is not completely modernized and is a bit rustic, but this hotel is a high quality establishment looking directly onto the beach. There are 2 types of rooms: some round 2 storey cottages reminiscent of local homes by the beach and then a long building with room entries looking out to the pool. The pool view rooms are cheaper, but if you like to have the pool by your door they are perfect. There are sun loungers right outside! The rooms were clean, well maintained and comfortable. The bathroom was unusual: long and narrow the length of the room, but not claustrophobic and pleasant to use. Excellent grill restaurant by the beach. The hotel is in a quieter location, which we liked. There are shops and restaurants in walking distance. We booked through Agoda and got a regular price of US 106. We booked a minibus from Bangkok with i-siteKohchang.com run by an English chap called Clyde. He has an office close to the hotel. We also booked an island tour and elephant ride with him. He is reliable, keeps his agreements and does not make off with your deposit. None of these are guaranteed in Thailand otherwise. The advantage of getting an island minibus is that they take you right to the hotel. The Bangkok ones leave you at the ferry and you have to get a local "taxi" on the island which is a sort of pickup truck with bench seats in it. You may have guessed that we are not young backpackers and if you are over 50 like us and less adventurous it is certainly possible to come to Koh Chang in comfort. We had a very pleasant stay at the Dewa and would like to come again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opening out to the pool.

Nice and cozy hotel. Nice beach.
There were technical problems with our room, so the two first days we had to move to Hotel Amari next door. For compensation we got a free dinner at the beach on Valentines day and a free massage for us.
When I got a stomach problem the Hotel was very helpfull driving us to a pharmacy - thats what I call excellent service!
NB the stomach problem was NOT from the hotel.

Stayed for 6 nights, and everything was good except that there is no gym, bed was rock hard and the AC very noisy which made it hard to sleep. That's why I only give 4 out of 5. Service is great, breakfast is wonderful and the pool and beach was also great.
Liked the location on Klong Prao beach and there is a couple of nearby restaurants on the beach which serves cheap lunch/dinner, our favourite was Lin's and Pilot bar. If you take the the path behind Lin's you get to Moonlight which have a restaurant on the river, also good!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor (3), larger balconies!

Modern Design Hotel, very tasteful - colour cement grey with natural green from tropical plants.
Friendly helpful staff with english knowledge ( Philippines). Food mostly western style and expensive ( ++).Massage on the beach next door to hotel cheap: Thai Baht 250 ( € 6).
Room rates differ extremely on various websites:
Deluxe room per day in February 2012 for 2 adults with breakfast:
1) Official website from hotel: Thai Baht 7,500 ( US $ 250 = € 190)
2) Most German websites ( eg.: www.ab-in-den-urlaub.de) Thai Baht 2,900 ( 100 US$ = € 72)
3) Holiday check ( eg: www.booking.com) Thai Baht 5,200 = US$ 175 = € 130)
4) Beware of ripp-off from Agoda ( www.agoda.com): they charge you about 10 times of the normal rate: Thai Baht 41,000 ( US $ 1,300 = € 1,000)!!. Their so-called "best price guarantee" is just a marketing trick and their promise " most rooms can be cancelled for free, so book now" is not true for Hotel The Dewa!

Room Tip: Villa very spacious

Dear jojo293916,
Thank you for sharing your experience here and we are pleased to note you have enjoyed your holiday at The Dewa and liked our resort and staff performance.
In order to keep the readers of your review well informed I should comment here that the information you are giving on the rates is not accurate (e.g. on our website the rate is 6000 Thai baht/night for our standard room-DELUXE, where we also advertise the 10% ”early bird” discount from this rate for advance booking…). If we read carefully the terms and conditions for booking on various websites we will notice then that the price varies on room types, seasons and if the taxes are included or not in the price shown, leading to some of the differences you have noticed. I would like to assure that we never categorize the rate based on nationality or any other criteria but the period/season (low, high, peak…) and we are maintaining a fair and professional rate structure for all markets, making sure that all the travelers interested to spend some time in our hotel can benefit from the quality of our accommodation, facilities and service.
Thank you again for staying with us and, if given the chance, The Dewa team looks forward to welcoming you here again in the future.
Best wishes,
Mihail C.

For 2 weeks my husband & i were at this hotel. Rooms are very small (15m2 less than write on site), not really beautiful, bed not confortable! Meat is not good and again very expensive... Go in the village and eat at Caty's culinary (gorgeous!!). It was at the end of year so every night there is a kind of singer who try to do lounge, so we were outside every night. The only point is the beach, but not enough to feel nice. Never good to feel like being stolen!

Room Tip: no room nice at this hotel

Dear FLORENCE187147,
Thank you for posting a review of your stay and for choosing The Dewa as your holiday host.
I have read your comments with real concern and I was surprised to note that you haven't enjoy our resort much and the only thing you have found attractive was our beach. Our records are showing you have been here with us for only a week and your post is somehow in contrast to the direct feedback you gave us whilst in our resort or the "thumbs up" your husband was showing us daily when coming down from his Spa treatment. I would like on this occasion to apologize for any inconvenience that could have disturbed your stay and I will be happy if you could send me directly some more details on this and I am thanking you in advance.
I also feel to make some comments on the title of your post that might lead others to think the opposite of what our resort has been created/designed for and I need to reassure our valued guests of our total commitment on sustaining the most adequate procedures and actions for environment conservation. This has been repeatedly endorsed and our awards like (I will only mention few of them) "OUTSTANDING NATURAL CONSERVATION ARCHITECTURE AWARD", "GREEN RESORT PROJECT - gold medal", participation on the "GREEN LEAF FOUNDATION PROGRAM" and the most recent TBA 2011 SILVER MEDAL for "ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN OF THE SEA" are standing to confirm the value of our "distinctively different" concept. Our rooms are also of the same size as advertised.
The dining options in our resort are generally well enjoyed and appreciated by our guests together with the high quality and the freshness of our ingredients and of course the level of service. We welcome your comment as it brings awareness for us to permanently monitor the consistency and quality of our food and I will personally follow up on checking if anything might have gone wrong during your stay. It's good too see though that you have enjoyed the food in our "Thai Cooking Class" PARTNER RESTAURANT Caty's. On behalf of our team I'd like to thank you again for staying with us and we hope to have the chance to welcome you here again and totally fulfill your expectations on the next occasion.
Best wishes,
Mihail C.
