Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The rooms are quaint, clean and reasonably priced. However, once you are there, the food, drinks and massages are expensive. Bed linen was super clean and smelled fresh but the beds were a bit hard. The place has a nice chilled vibe and Neff the manager is friendly and helpful. There is no beach as such, unless the tide goes out and the sea wasn’t that clean due to the proximity of the port. However, this is a welcomed escape from the business of Koh Chang and nice for a night or two.

Great food and drinks at the restaurant and lovely view. Majority of the staff very friendly - especially Shireen who is really wonderful. The linen was good quality and the beds are comfortable. Unfortunately our overall stay was very average. The activities that are currently advertised on Instagram are not happening as it is low season, but sadly this was not communicated to us in advance. The shower in one of the bathrooms flooded for 5 consecutive nights which was really unpleasant. The team did apologise and did try and use a plunger but it did not fix the problem. They did allow early check out with a full refund as a result which was very much appreciated. I broke some glass by mistake which the team dealt with efficiently and professionally which I appreciated. A door frame had termites which we pointed out upon arrival but was unfortunately not addressed for our whole stay. The beach in front of the hotel is not swim-able. You can’t see it when the tide is up, but it is banked with rocks and sharp barnacles, so you either have to walk to a Sandy beach or catch a taxi if you’d like to swim (we recommend Lonely Beach for great swimming!) It is important to note that it is far away from other neighbourhoods and beautiful swimming beaches etc. It costs between 100 and 150 baht per person, one way, and it is a 15-20 minute taxi ride. We didn’t hire a scooter because there were heavy rains and the roads were obviously wet so we felt safer using a taxi, but it was certainly a big expense that we had not budgeted for. The property is very steep. Perhaps because it is low season is why things were sub-par, but our overwhelming feeling was that we didn’t get value for our money. If the price was very different, many things would be overlooked. However for an extra €20 per person per night, we found accommodation at a 5 star resort that included breakfast and a private swimming pool. I imagine that it could be fantastic in high season, but our experience in low season left a lot to be desired. I see that the business has responded defensively to previous Trip Advisor reviews. I hope that this doesn’t garner the same response. This is not an attack. It is a review of our stay and our experience.

Twelve bungalows in the jungle facing a small, beautiful, private beach. This place looks like a small, tiny village all in white and turquoise. Add a beach restaurant and a terrace bar offering high quality food and original recipes ( vegan dishes included). Staff is joyful and kind. Here you can find your little paradise, in a corner of the island far from traffic and crowd.

I had a wonderful stay at Indie Beach! The bungalows are clean, functional, nicely decorated and probably the best bed I ever have slept in! The food in the restaurant is high made of high quality ingredients and at a very affordable price. I ate all my meals there, the restaurant is beachfront and super chill for a whole day if suntanning and drinking cocktails! Good for singles, couples & families with children! Can not wait to be back next year!

The moment you stepped in you feel happy, a wonderful little oasis full of joy and love. Very friendly staff, nicely designed bungalow on the beach.

Visited Thailand for the first time to attend a friend’s wedding at Indie Beach. Most of us stayed here for at least a week and I personally did not want to leave. The location is perfect, the whole staff (and owners too) are lovely and provide great service. You pretty much have everything you need, restaurant, bar, laundry service, outdoor gym, water sports and yoga lessons (a must try) Will definitely come back for a longer stay!

Extensive interesting menu with choices for vegan and non vegetarian customers and really nice setting on the tranquil beach. Smoothies were great as was the food. Sounds mad but the Thai omelette was unbelievable , the pizza was delicious and the hummus/avocado/sourdough combination was delightful. Will be back for sure!!

There’s so many great things to say about this place, I don’t know where to begin. I’ll start with the food…every single dish we ate was amazing and I think we ate 95% of the menu. The atmosphere is so warm, friendly and every person working there smiles like they known you for years which automatically sets you up for a great day. The location is perfect, just a few steps away from the beach with clear water and beach chairs to relax the day away. The rooms are clean, comfortable and modern with a little fridge to store emergency chocolate or a couple of cheeky beers. This review wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the owners Christine, Zoo, Indie and Benjamin. This family is so welcoming and some of the best hosts I’ve ever encountered. They make you feel as though you are part of their family the moment you step onto the property to the moment you leave. Our family has stayed here twice now and already counting down the days when we can return. Just a small gentle reminder that this resort is located on a Thai island that experienced a huge economic hit during Covid so a little patience, speaking slowly and clearly to the local staff and leaving a small tip will go a long way in making sure you have the ultimate paradise holiday. ♥️🙏🏽♥️

It was a very nice experience at Indie beach. Special compliments to Ghiriu. The owners showed us the best places to go out on the island. As 3 young girls, this was the best place to spend our time on Koh Chang. The island is still recovering from the lock-down , but you don't notice that at Indie Beach; Live music, everything on the menu is available, staff is very sweet and helpful. Truly a dream hippie place, BEAUTIFUL.
