I planned this vacation with my family for awhile. I was reading through the reviews of other guests through TripAdvisor and decided to book with panviman.

I was a bit nervous since the road leading to the hotel was quite far. It was exactly 1 kilometer I was told. But I understood why it was important. The secluded location was great for an old couple like us. I do understand why other people was talking about no bar scenes since Klong prao beach isn't as happening as the white sand beach area.

The food was very good. Breakfast had a lot of variety. We stayed 6 nights and there was something new each day. The seafood BBq was my favorite. The only thing I didn't like was the insect that made a very loud noise at exactly at 5 in the evening until about 8 at night. It was a type of cricket with a very annoying alarm like sound. We had to book the vs pa by panviman for any treatments after 5.

I'd love to take my wife here again soon. Last notes for their friendly and helpful staff. They made us feel very welcome. Ask for lek or ba at the restaurant. They'll take good care of you.

Greetings from The Panviman Resort Koh Chang!

First of all, thank you for your recent review about our resort. I personally would like to thank you on behalf of the management and staff for your support and being our not only guest but a family. We are glad that our property and staff were able to make you completely relax on your holidays.

We were told by the National Park Ranger that the insect is a close cousin of the cricket. After the rainy season into the winter months, they are out looking for their soul mate. It is romantic for them, but very annoying for us I know. They should stop by December (thankfully).

We appreciate your lovely review from your previous stay and we hope that you will have even more memorable experience on your next visit. I wish you safe travels and we all look forward to welcoming back very soon.

Best and Personal Regards,

Paul Porada Srisuwanporn

All rooms are large, villa-style accomodations. We stayed in a pool-side access villa and were very pleased. The staff is very accommodating and the restaurant menu has very authentic Thai food on offer (Nam Prik, for example). Check out the Reggae-style pub next door on the beach. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Keep in mind that it is located about 1 Km from the main road, so you should rent a motorbike to get around.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the pool-access villas

I spent 9 days at Panviman in October and next to the beautiful hotel and lovely swimming pool + private beach, I want to emphasize the great quality of Thai Food. I must admit I didn't try the Western food because i'm not a big fan of doing so when traveling in Asia. The ginger fish, spicy seafood salad, cashew nut chicken, all of it was great! The room was spacious with lots of teak wood and a four post bed. You will feel at home immediately. I didn't spend a lot of time outside the hotel because honestly if you want to go shopping you wouldn't be doing that on a Thai island anyway so don't expect anything on the main road... The massages were great both inside as well as outside of the hotel.
Getting to the Panviman hotel from Trat aiport you can best arrange at Trat airport upon arrival. The airport is very small so you can't miss the desk. It will cost you 800 Baht for a return ticket including the ferry and it takes 90 minutes to get from the airport to the hotel.

I never knew that Koh Chang has a hiden gem called Panviman. From what I gathered, Koh Chang seemed to have a "back packer" reputation. Panviman is a vacationer's paradise.

We arrived by car across a 30 minute ride ferry from Trad. It was about 4 hours from Bangkok. The ride took most of our energy, but ascsoon as we saw our room, we were revived. Nookie and the reception crews were terrific. Our breakfast were amazing with variety of selections and fresh local fruits. Our room was clean, big, and vintage Thai style. The house keeping were adorable and the restaurant service staffs were very eager to please you.

The only negative I saw were that the location of the resort is quite far from the main road. The hotel did offer hourly shuttle service to the main road. Luckily we broght our car so that wasn't much of a problem. The villa was also placed in a natural setting so nature's critters were sometimes roaming in our room. We just laughed it off and figured it was a night safari attraction LOL.

All in all, we loved our stay. The price was very reasonable considering the large space we had. I would come back here again for sure. Thank you for making our vacation very enjoyable.

We were a bit concerned on the bus shuttle in as we turned off the main road down a dark access road for about 10 minutes. You are isolated from much of the action of Klong Prao town site. It is a 1 km walk to the main road or you can take a shuttle ever couple of hours from the hotel. The breakfast is first rate, The meals are very good but a bit pricey as is the spa. 1500b for 2 for 2.5 hrs. We walked both sides of Klong Prao beach from the resort and this section of the beach is the best. Fine white sand and shallow out for at least the first 50 meters. Very few rocks etc. The resort itself is first rate, Bungalows are arranged in sets of 3 with some having their own exclusive pool access. There were lots of palapas and they were up on a raised landscaped section a meter or so above the beach. Nice sized pool with a small waterfall.
We like the isolation and quiet nature of the resort but it is better suited for mature couples and families.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closer to the beach.
