In 2004 we stayed in Jungle Huts again, and just like the first time we were the only ones there when we arrived. This time two single travellers stayed also for a few days at these huts. This time it was not so far out of season, so a little sad to see these huts so empty. The people who are the owners now seem to be more commercial, they want more money, but take less care of the property, a bad development.
We still made it a great stay, but almost decided to find another place to stay.
This place is perfect for backpackers or single travellers. Very cool place for people to chill out. Right next to lonely beach. About 200 bhat per night bungalow, public bathroom, no hot water. The resturant there is very good and the owner is very friendly.
At Koh Chang we spent our days in a very basic, simple cottage. The place is called Jungle Huts, and it is just after Lonely Beach. If you get dropped off there it will be walkable.
This place has no luxery at all, so don't go there if you need anything more than a matras, mosquito-net and blanket in your hut. I was there in October [high season didn't start yet] and there was nobody but me and my partner. It was so relaxing!
When we walked up to the road we had our breakfast place right there along the street and on the opposite of the street we ate our dinner on evenings on which we didn't barbecue.
I don't know what the owners are like, since they had their parents (a lovely old couple) still look after the place. But that couple was very sweet, and they let us borrow a canoe to get around on the water each day. The place does not have a sand beach. You'll have to walk a little bit to get to the Lonely Beach for that, but I think that was the charm, because that makes it such a nice and quiet place to stay.
Aiyapura R&S is the newest and most luxurious accommodation available on Koh Chang.
The decor is post colonial design with nautural teak and wooden furnitures and plushed with thai silk bed covers.
The hotel offers 7 different room types for best picks try = mountain top villa (#201 best view) and suite (#408 waterfront).
The hotel is more than generous in is space of all room types, however would sugest staying in deluxe rooms and above.
The toilet is usually almost half the size of the bedroom! This is something i admire in hotels for the space and the amenities in the toilet. Not that anyone spends alot of time there, but as a hotel inspector, i tend to find that bathroom is the second place for relaxation and having excellent marbled tiles, open air showers, large tubs for bath is an plus for a star.
The Spa .... i won't tell you about it... your experience is ultimatley yours.
The down side of the hotel, though it does not affect my visit too much is the beach quality. The beach is a little rocky along the shores and is muddy around the shallow areas of the waters.
But....life can't be forever perfect right? That's why other coastal beach towns offer the nice beach for you to quest.
