“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Well it was cheap and would have been a great place if only they had cleaned and tidied up the ground around the huts! Right on the beach good restaurant attached although staff a bit indifferent if they had only spent a little time and effort it would be a five star place as the beach is great. It struck me as a place that had been great in its prime and had now been left to rot.

Yes it is a shame, a terrible shame because this resort could in fact be everything that you had hoped for your fantastic trip to Koh Chang and in particular, lonely beach.
I couldn't help thinking, as I lounged in their communal bar/restaurant, 'when did they give up caring?'

The 'resort' was obviously a great place to come at some time in the past. The location is superb and the the beach huts well placed to maximize the beach living experience.There is a lovely sandy beach nearby and superb sunsets and views over the islands.

So why let the place turn into a dump? I just don't get it. rubbish all over the place, huts that are only just fit for habitation, rude and surely staff, very passable food and a beach front strewn with all sorts of debris.

It is dreadful to see such a naturally beautiful area being abused by the people who are supposed to be caring for it, particularly when you consider they have their livelihoods at stake as well.

There is simply no excuse for dumped mattresses and other rubbish clogging up the walkways between the garden (read swamp) huts at the rear of the property, it can simply not be justified. When I arrived, I spent an hour in the morning picking up all the trash and empty bottles that were scattered outside my hut, not really a great start.

How ever, if you can get your head around all that there are some party nights twice a week if you like that sort of thing and don't plan on doing to much sleeping. There are also some free movies to watch in the bar area on the nights when you are not partying and the BBQ food, although a little expensive is very tasty.

Would I go back? i would love to, but not in its current state.

It may be cheap but it's disgusting. The resort is filthy with rubbish strewn everywhere. The huts are unsecure and dirty, the sheets where unwashed and there were hairs on the pillowcases and stains on the mattress. The bins were never emptied and the smell of sewerage was overpowering.
The staff are damn right rude and unfriendly and treat you like an intruder instead of a paying guest.
The restaurant food is below average and overpriced, served on chipped greasy plates and the tables are rarely cleaned thus an invitation to flies and cockroach.
I have travelled Thailand as a backpacker for 22 years and I am pleased to say I have never encountered such a miserable, shabby, rundown hole as this resort.
Do yourself a big favor even if you have to pay a few more baht, and avoid this place like the plague...

We stayed in a 2nd row bungalow for 5 nights and didn't regret it for a second. We had a fan and a mosquito net and slept like a baby every night! The bungalows are bamboo and the rooms are essentially open to the outdoors... the walls do not meet the ceiling and in the bathroom area, though they have a ceiling, the tops of the walls are open. This was not a drawback though, and we enjoyed our stay very much! The beach is beautiful, the atmosphere is very relaxed, and it pays to stay right on the beach, there's really no reason not to. Are there better bungalows on Lonely Beach with cement walls and air conditioning? Yes. Will they charge you 480Baht/night to stay on the beach? No, they will charge you at least 800.

Animal count:
cockroaches in our bungalow - 3
geckos around our bungalow - at least 30
lizard living on our bungalow - 1 (that we know of)
cows grazing around the bungalows at night - 3

Drawback: STAFF!!!!! ... and food. and lack of Chang beer. Eat somewhere else, the food is sub-par. The staff was really horrible. They hated their jobs. I don't know who owns Siam Hut, but apparently they don't care about the quality of their employees or the quality of their services. Don't bother with them. Stay here (make sure you get a hut on an end away from the patio deck in the middle... movies and music happen here until late in the night.) and go take a 5 minute walk down the road or over the bridge on the beach to the "main street" of lonely beach for food and drink.

Room Tip: Stay away from the central patio deck. Make sure you stay in the 1st or 2nd rows. Make sure you look...

stayed here 10 years ago, and the place has gone down since then. Super unfriendly staff, could not even manage a greeting on arrival. Dirty rooms, with serious plumbing issues, right next to a rubbish pit that stank. Got ill from the food, and checked out the next day. amazingly they seemed busy, but why im not sure....there are plenty other better places around Lonely Beach. Super loud music right next to the rooms, meant little sleep ......all in all the worst night in asia in 10 years of travel.

Unfriendly staff that basically grunt unless taking your money. rubbish everywhere, holes in the floors and walls unsecured doors nowhere for your clothes, overpriced food and drinks and it was 400 baht a night. The worst quality beach huts i have stayed in , in the whole of asia. Stayed one night and got the hell outta dodge. positives are amazing views of sunset and free movies in the bar area, my advice visit for a beer for the sunset and watch a movie but do not stay

My "hut" was in the middle of a trash pit. In fact the entire hotel area looked like a dump. I've stayed in all sorts of austere places on islands in Thailand. Most are extremely basic, but at least the owner/managers take pride in their facility and keep them clean. At Siam Hut trash is openly strewn across the property, all sorts of liquids are dumped from the bar restaurant area right next to some of the huts, and there was mold throughout my hut. I'd paid for two nights but left first thing in the morning after the first.
