“A wonderful first stay”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Spent a week here in December 2013, it was perfect. A spotlessly clean room with the biggest bed i've ever seen, a/c, fan, fridge, tv, 2 minutes back from the beach. The restaurante does a great buffet breakfast & an excelent menu through the day. Pool is a bonus. The massage parlour right on the beach is amazing, the thai massage is a must. Will def. be back asap.

Room Tip: Beach front would have been the only improvement possible.

We've got in the habit of returning to Kai Bae Beach Resort every December as it is so wonderful. We spend the days Kayaking out to the islands just off shore, relaxing on the beach and shopping on the main road just a few hundred metres away.

The highlight has to be swimming with the young elephants that come swim and play at the beach at 11.30am and 5.00pm each day. Even if you don't ride an elephant on the beach or play with it in the water, if sure makes for lovely sunset photos.

The food is average Thai food that you find in every beach resort in Thailand. The service is fast and friendly and the food is fresh, tasty and fairly priced.

It's hard to find a bungalow right on the sand, with a large deck and enough room for a family of 5 anywhere in Thailand. For our family this resort hits the spot. And it is why we return year after year.

Room Tip: We love the rooms right on the beach. There aren't any organised kids activities but there is t...

Stayed there 6 days in November, beachfront bungalow. Nice and clean room, right on the beach, with cool chill out terrasse. Hotel located in the middle of Kai Bae, many food and bars around, beach in nice too. Wifi works well, even in the rooms. A couple of negatives : wifi with coupons (free) means must login every time you go online, bathroom really needs refurb. One last thing : we checked out at 7am, reception was still closed, so none of us could get our key deposit (200baht) back ! Not so professional !

I accidentally booked this place to stay. I was looking to stay on White Sands Beach, but didn't notice that I'd booked another beach until it was too late.

My driver wanted extra money to travel the distance from White Sands to Kai Bea (about 15 minutes drive). I was glad to see the town wasn't completely dead. Everything you need, restaurants, mini marts, motorbike rentals, are within walking distance.

I was unimpressed with the check in area of the resort itself. The rooms are not that great either, but not bad. Both of these details scream "Thai style". But all in all, it was an okay place to stay. One thing I did like was my bungalow had a deck on the roof, so one could go up to get some sun. However, since my room was in the back of the resort, I didn't have much of a view.

The beach was calm and quiet. There was some coral, but not sure how the snorkeling was as I didn't partake. The pool is basic, but good enough for me.

The morning breakfast wasn't that great at all. Very limited selection and cold food typical of Thai run establishments.

I don't regret staying there, but if I were to return to Koh Chang, I'd probably try a different hotel.

We were there in August. I liked everything: sandy beach with elephants bathing in the sea in mornings and with crabs, clean and comfortable room, helpful and friendly staff (want to mark the work of receptionist Mond), pool, relatively short distance to the main road (about 3-5 minutes of walk), the garden with cocoa palms, banana trees, nice flowers and beautiful butterflies, atmosphere of privacy and quietness. I recommend it to everyone, especially to families and couples.

Room Tip: First line next to the sea was noisy on windy days because of waves.

We had 5 nights at Kai Bae Beach Resort in a beach front bungalow, it’s a lovely place, nice staff, good housekeeping, nice restaurant and breakfast.
The location is good, rent a small motorbike and you have lot’s of restaurants and sightseeing options near by.
Even without a bike there are many places to go and eat and do minor shopping.
Just a small walk up the beach and you can go snorkelling, diving and island hopping by boat.
If I ever return to Ko Chang I would certainly stay here again.

Reviewed 25 November 2012

Found this place by walking down the beach after moving out of another hotel in town. I had a cheery little pink and orange bungalow with a roof terrace in the second row behind the beach. One could sit on the front porch or on the roof terrace or on the beach. Room was equipped with safe, fridge, closets, a/c, fast wi-fi, modern bathroom. There was some mildew on the ceiling of the bathroom, but other than that the rooms were cleaned every morning & the staff made a different flower and animal sculpture with the towels each morning. The woman at check-in is very friendly. The hotel is right on the beach and is far enough away from town to be quiet at night, but close enough that I felt fine walking alone in the evening from the hotel up the well-lit road to town.

As for Kai Bae as a destination -- I did not love Ko Chang, although many people do. For me, the main street, rather the only street, is too touristy in that every business is for tourists. The little beaches at Kai Bae are nice for swimming etc. but honestly I am not sure how I would have felt if I had flown all the way from somewhere far away just to go to Ko Chang. It made a nice several day add-on to another trip -- but as a destination in itself? I am just not sure.

However, if Ko Chang is what you are looking for, then the Kai Bae Beach Resort is a very good choice. It may even be the best choice at its price point in Kai Bae. The KB resort next door is just a bit more expensive although it has a nicer looking restaurant and a pool, but you can stay at Kai Bae Beach Resort and eat next door!
