“Beautiful location and rooms, great chef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We stayed at the Aiyapura for one week. We had room 608, which offers excellent views over the bay. Our room was very spacious and well-appointed with comfortable beds. On our first night we took dinner in the main hotel restaurant, enjoying a creamy prawn curry. An excellent duo of musicians (girl singer, man keyboard player with backing tape) perform nightly and we were able to request 'our song', Daniel by Elton John. Hurray! For the remaining nights of the holiday we took the 7pm hotel shuttle to the lively White Sand Beach nearby. This offers a dazzling array of seafood beach restaurants and a taxi back costs 300 baht. On return to Ayiapura we took a coffee and heard some more songs.

The hotel offers plenty of white loungers in the extensive grounds. Nearly all the accompanying mattresses (which add greatly to the comfort) are placed on the loungers around the pool. There are a few loungers on the bay-front that have mattresses and we managed to get two of these by venturing out for an early morning swim each day. (The only sound you hear at this time is the chanting from a nearby Bhuddist temple!) The seawater is very calm, if somewhat shallow at low-tide. The hotel pool is immaculately clean, with pretty two-tone blue tiles. Lunch at the bay-side restaurant is not particularly good. I had a moderate squid dish, the seafood being rather tough, and my wife did not enjoy her Caesar's salad. Fear not... the chef in the main restaurant, which has a splendid view, is brilliant! He delivers the best Pad Thai we tasted during our two-week stay for only 200 baht and that is plenty for two diners. We greatly enjoyed all the lunches that he cooked for us.

There is quite a variety of accommodation, some of it a long way from the main restaurant. It seems to me that we had the best of the rooms, teak-floored, in the range 601-610. The grounds are graced with a large number of peacocks and peahens. I once counted 17 of them. This hotel would not perhaps be a good choice for two weeks, but for 3/4 or 7 days it is a very enjoyable and peaceful location.

Room Tip: Be careful with your choice. Ask for a room close to reception, one with a good sea view.

This is a beautiful hotel with a private beach and serene views. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with our shower and it was taken care of immediately. The grounds are well kept, and it is nice to walk around the entire property. I decided to splurge and have a massage at the hotel spa...it was great, extremely relaxing, a completely different kind of experience than the regular massages in town. (when comparing the massages, you should take in consideration the entire atmosphere and not just the price).
The only thing that I think the hotel should consider improving , is adding more shuttle service to White Sands beach. There are only a few shuttles a day and the last one returns at 19:30. If you go to White Sands for dinner and to "hang out", 19:30 is too early to return.
Breakfast was excellent!
We loved this hotel!

Room Tip: Some rooms are quite far from the lobby. Some of them are up high and you have to walk up a lot of s...

The service was very good and the breakfast was good. Our air conditioner wasn't working when we arrived. It was quickly fixed. But the room was very dated and the air conditioner very old.
The pool has more than a few missing tiles. Though it looks like there is a beach, it is actually more like a mud flat. It was isolated from places to eat.

We had our wedding in february 2013,

Our 3 days experience was spectacular. It could not have been better. Extremly professional performed by by the managment.
We have many experiences in Thailand and we have never seen any better.

We had 70 guests and all of them was taken good care of.
On the first day the resort we had a welcome party and the resort fix this very good and the guests did not think it could be any better on the wedding day the day after, but on the wedding day it was even better. We started the day with breakfast in our magnificent pool villa, followed by a spa in the spa department at the hotel. The hotel included a styling lady for the bride with make up and hair.
We had a elefant followed with thai dancers and trums to the beach where all the guests was waiting.
The beach was wounderful decorated and we had fireshow, forework, thai dancers and more.

If you are getting married in thailand we can recommend this resort. Our wedding could not have been better.

Very nice resort: perfect location in the bay gives less wind and waves and enough peace, 3minutes away from tge busy Rural rd and 10 min deive from the White Sands Beach; bungalows isolated from each other, and if you are licky with neighbours then your nights are peaceful; pool area is comfortable; breakfast is fine; other hotel services are good enough, but never perfect)) only because of low level of English of the staff ))) it takes you several times more to get what you want and explaining it to the hotel staff.
But we liked the place: my, husband, my 1,7 year old son and myself. We'd recommend it for a family stay at Koh Cang

No charm of any kind
No beach in front of hotel
Furniture from the communist period
Menu of pizza's hamburgers and spaghetti ( all overpriced ) doesn't make it more charming...
We made a booking for new years eve but prefered to leave the hotel and not get the money back!

Stayed there with my whole extended family and enjoyed every minute of it. Located at a quiet corner of the island, it is a beautiful resort that offers everything you could expect. The only downside is that it takes quite long to serve food at both restaurant but you can enjoy a nice drink while you are waiting. I would highly recommend this and will go back
