“Best of a bad lot”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

We walked the length of the Kai Bae beach and decided on this place. The Burmese manageress was charming and speaks very good English, which helps at times. Though it was low season, most places on Koh Chang, including here, were unwilling to negotiate below a certain rate, even though they were mostly empty or near to it......quite exxy we thought. Mam Kai Bae had some redeeming features. Our beach front bungalow was cute. It was clean; the room servicing was good. The beach front restaurant has nice basic Thai food and is charming with its outlook and sunsets; though the serving staff could do with training in table service, clearing and wiping down. The owner is pleasant. They allowed me to use their computer and internet. As a whole, the island though has a tired and jaded feel with no one prepared to go the extra mile or even do anything unless they can get something from you. Trying to get laundry done is impossible.

Room Tip: My main advice would be not to go to this island when there are so many others to choose from with b...

Being our first trip to Koh Chang we decided on staying in the Beachfront Bungalow. Great rooms for a couple or even you don't mind being in same room as kids.The view was a great and location even better.The bar and lunch/dinner area was only 15mts away and the beach another 5mts more. A short walk from the room was the main road which also helps with lower traffic noise one would think.Staff were always helpful, booking day trips and airport transfers and the rooms were cleaned very well everyday. We will be back one day.

Room Tip: Leave the cleaners up to 50 Baht as a small thank you.

Stayed for 4 nights at Mam Kai Bae Resort in April 2012 in the VIP suite. Room was big and comfortable and fantastic view from the balcony of the beach and ocean. Is about 10 minute walk from the main road were all the shops and restaurants are but not too bad of a walk. Would not bother paying extra for breakfast as was very ordinary and eggs and stuff were cold. Pool is on top floor and is quite safe watch coming down as if wet stairs can be a bit slippery. Hotel is in quiet location and is very family friendly. Is some nice snorkelling right out the front of the hotel with heaps of fish. If you are looking for somewhere that is quiet and relaxing this is the place. Staff were helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.

We stayed in a beach bungalow for a short stay with the family.
Outstanding value for money, located on a quiet beach, close enough to good dining experiences, far enough from the main road to be quiet.
Breakfast is a bit limited but good and honest value for money.
I recommend to get a room on the beach - certainly worth the extra money when the sun is going down and the spectacle starts.
Tip : rent a scooter and discover the island.

Room Tip: Take a room on the beach - well worth the extra money.
