Value
Elephant Bay Resort (EBR) is located south-west on the island of Koh Chang, in Bailan Bay. The resort has a big garden with lots of room to play sports such as volleyball and badminton, hang-out in one of the several hammocks or just enjoy the sun by the pool. It is both a place to be by yourself and to meet people. Moreover, the resort is surrounded by walls and with only one entrance and exit, will make your stay as relaxed and private as possible. All rooms are decorated in the same style, yet none are the same and they each have their own personality. The restaurant and bar area has a funky, colorful look and invites you to mingle with other guests.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were all so friendly and always carried a warm smile which was very contagious. Food was delicious and the pool was so nice, I love how it overlooks the beach. My favourite spot was the swing over the rocks, it was peaceful and I felt very welcomed by all the staff. Also, A very comfortable bed! I was so thrilled to have had a soft mattress that I could melt into! Loved our chats, you have great banter! Thank you for a very enjoyable stay at your resort! Keep up the great work! I’ll be back again I’m sure of it.

Rooms are small and extreme basic, tiny space around the bed to walk, two shelves to put stuff on. Bed sheets have oily stains. Don't expect anyting from the rooms. They charge 15 baht for a cup of hot water, very strange. View and sunset is so nice. But no beach at all and sea is all rock bottom, you need special shoes to walk in this sea.

Cute bungalow with sea view for a very reasonable price (rocky beach). Great facilities:games, books, pool. Staff is very friendly (Dee 👌). Stayed there twice and the value is perfect. NYE celebration was enlightened with fireworks organised by the staff 🎉👏👏👏

A group of friends went to Ko Chang for the weekend. Our accommodation was lovely. The rooms, pool area and bar were clean. The place is stunning and has a good location. We were 3 couples staying at the resort and all of us were happy with our choice. The value for money is a bonus.

Elephant bay resort was wonderful. Slightly out of the way but easy to catch a cab to lonely beach. Our room was large and clean, had a great bathroom and good AC. The pool was great and the restaurant was great as well. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Best stay of our trip so far!

We liked this placed a lot. Its very good value for money. We had a family room 2 separate beds and King size bed but the beds are very hard. My brother stayed in a different room where there was no ceiling over the shower. We had no lizards or bugs in our room maybe 1-2 mosquito's We liked the food very much, but have no hurry when you order. You have to take a taxi to the nearest beach. We had TV on the room but we never used it. There was nowhere to place the suitcase. Could have had some small table or something. We place one suitcase over the refrigerator. We booked a scuba diving trip close to the resort for 3hours. Very good But if you are going to Koh Mak book a scuba diving trip on the island. This was beyond expectations.

Great location but this resort has missed the mark on a few things. 1) the food was not good at all; one of the orders for a mango salad showed up soggy and appeared to have been sitting around for a while-not fresh at all 2) the bugs in the room and toilet/shower area were awful 3) the chairs around the pool are dirty or broken 4) there is a diaper (used) right near the pool area that was there each day, even after the staff were cleaning up; no one moved it to the garbage

We came to Koh Chang after 5 weeks of travelling Vietnam and Cambodia and Elephant Bay Resort was perfect for a relaxing few days. Off season we were the only ones there for 3 days - Family of 5 (6,9,11yr) loved the pool - food was great at resort and also nearby restaurants.
