End of November, I stayed three nights in a Bali house.
I sent an e-mail to give them our arrival time at the pier and they sent someone to pick me up when I arrived and when I was leaving, they drove me back to the pier and waited with me the speedboat which has 25 minutes delay to go to Koh Chang.
I came from Koh Mak and it took only 25 minutes by Bang Tao speedboat to get here. When I left, I took the Kai Bae speedboat of 11 am to go to Koh Chang (Klong Prao Beach) with a stop at Kok Mak, Ko Wai. Otherwise, you can take the Bang Tao speedboat of 9 am or noon to go to Koh Chang (Bang Tao) (same price : 900 baths/person). The journey took 1 h 25 and the transfer from the pier to your resort in Koh Chang is included in the price. You can book your speedboat ticket at the reception of the resort.
The furniture of the bedroom is a bit old fashioned but you have a nice outdoor bathroom with a shower gel and a shampoo dispenser. The floor is made of wood and the terrace has a coconut palm in the middle. The room is equipped with a TV a DVD player, a safe and a minibar.
I really appreciated the natural surroundings of this resort with their beautiful garden with their coconut palms. They have a lot of furniture in wood. It is the first time that I can see such maintenance of the wood in a hotel (I appreciate the wood very much).
If you don't rent a motor bike, you depend of the hotel for everything because there are almost no shops or restaurants in the near surroundings. The restaurant is very good but expensive for Thailand: 150 baths for a pad Thai, but keep in mind that you are on a small island.
The breakfast buffet is consisting of egg station, salad, banana, watermelon, pineapple, fresh juice, water, potato, ham, bacon, pancakes and vegetables (depending of the day: tomato, onion, etc.).
The infinity pool is very beautiful. There are 16 sunbeds with a mat and 10 sunbeds next to the beach. This is small beach and not one of the best to relax.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can borrow DVD, mountain bikes, kayak with a deposit. On 28th November, they drove 8 guests for free to the Loi Krathong Feast (light feast which takes place once a year).
You can snorkel from the beach and you can even have a test dive in the swimming pool (for free) with Paradise Divers.
WiFi is available for free only at the restaurant and there is also a PC should you may use to check yours mails.
You have to pay the totality of your stay when you make your reservation and the hotel charge you 3,5 % for the Visa payment (also when you pay your bill at end of your stay). As this is a small hotel, don’t forget to book at least 4 months in advance for the peak season (they have only 8 Bali houses. There are other bedrooms available but you have to share the terrace with a second bedroom).
I will recommend this resort.
