So, this is the must-go-to island? This is supposed to be a boutique hotel?
Having read the many positive reviews here we came with expectations. And we were let down.
On their website they say: "The Chill offers truly unique experience and privacy that redefines the definition of modern luxury resorts." Well, if that is how the owners see The Chill, they should hire a management that brings this vision to life.
The potential, no doubt, is there. The boutique style architecture makes The Chill certainly one of, if not the most attractive option on Chang island (which in total, we found just as overrated). The rooms are spacious and generally clean. Yet, they lack any personal touch whatsoever (what did happen to all the Asian elements?). The most unique feature of the room was the noisy and smelly air con. Service is friendly but far from being professional or in any way five star.
The infinity pool is large and great to swim in. And it is needed desperately as The Chill is located on a second-rate stretch of beach. It is rocky and not very inviting.
Breakfast at the restaurant was of good quality but far from the unique experience that management brags about on their website.
I was tempted to even rate The Chill "poor", last but not least because on check out day mysteriously some 800 Baht for laundry (which we never used) popped up on our bill. All in all, I give it a generous 2.6, round it a up to 3.
