The Souk
Ranked #10 of 115 Ko Chang B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We have spent a fantastic week at the Souk ! Located far away from the noise of hotels and restaurants of the East coast, The Souk offers an ideal location from which to explore Koh Tchang island. The rooms located on the beach are clean and pretty. The restaurants we have experimented outside of the Souk were a disapointment to us compared to Eddy’s sophisticated and delicious cuisine ! The reputation of Eddy’s cuisine goes well beyond Thailand’s borders as he is regularly invited by customers to come to Europe in order to give cooking lessons ! To us, The Souk is by far the best restaurant of the island. The restaurant and bar offers a relaxing and cozy atmosphere. The choice of music, the decoration, everything contributes to make this place feel like paradise. The great sense of hospitality of the Souk’s personnel made us feel at home. Being a family we had specific requests and The Souk’s team did everything they could to meet our demands. We can only recommend The Souk to anyone willing to visit Koh Tchang island for a short or long term trip. The place is well suited for families, couples, globe-trotters, etc…The Briancourt / Stauffer family (France/Switzerland)

A very charming and heavenly place in Ko Chang, "outside the box" on the East Coast of the island
Food, drinks, ice cream, accommodation, sea and sun, everything is so perfect...
We would like to keep it secret..!!

A lovely resort on a very quiet beach which serves great food. The Souk is run by a lovely family Ed and Oh along with their daughter Angie. The bungalows are very comfortable and funky and have great views. Ed has just taken delivery of a small boat that he is going to use to take customers out fishing or on snorkelling trips. They also have kayaks that you can take out in the very safe bay. We have been a number of times and it never disappoints.

Lovely beachfront resort with a great restaurant, a funky vibe and fantastic service, a perfect place and hard to get away from. Stayed here for a week, could easily have stayed longer. Bungalow 1 was spacious, clean and funky. Good powerful shower, nice firm huge matrass and I loved the disco lights beneath my bed :-).

With a scooter you can explore the east coast which is completely different from the hussle and bustle of the west. So green, quiet and still authentic. Absolutely beautiful vistas. Take a plunge in the Klong Nonsi waterfall, you will love it. But you can also simply remain at the Souk, it has everything you need to be completely lazy and happy. Great cocktails too!

Thank you so much Ed and Oh for your sweet and continuous hospitality, you did all to make your guests feel comfortable and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble for you. I felt very welcome.

Very nice resort with totally 7 rooms, of which 3 have air conditioning. We slept in one of the fan rooms. Very funky rooms with an open air shower (the walls are high enough to prevent the neighbors from watching you while taking a shower :-)). All bungalows have views towards the beach. The restaurant serves great food against reasonable prices. Very nice terrace for having your dinner or just to drink something. If you want to explore the island it's best to rent a scooter at the centre point pier. The owner, Eddy, can tell you the best place to rent over there.
We had no negative experiences.

We were recommended by a family friend to stay with Eddy at the Souk. It was perfect. We stayed for 7 nights and we could have stayed longer. We hired a moped and explored the island, which was hair-raising (moutains + winding roads + unrestricted moped) found some beautiful beaches. The food was excellent and the company was amazing, we preferred to stay at the Souk eating delicious food listening to chilled out songs with Eddy and his family. We really hope to go back one day! We stayed in one of the original bungalows, if you wanted more luxury, go for the air-conditioned.

Room Tip: if you want authentic go for an original hut, if you need more luxury go for air conditioned.

One of the best location we found around Asia! Fine cuisine, serving both classic Thai cuisine that excellent creations of Ed, the charismatic owner of the resort. Ed and his wife Oh are always attentive to the needs of their guests and they are really wonderful. A great ambience with very good music and good cocktails. Definitely the best place to relax....
The bungolows are very confortable and spacious. It was the second time at The Souk and will not be the last....
