Chang Buri Resort and Spa
Ranked #29 of 73 Hotels in Ko Chang
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Chang Buri is a nice hotel in the White Sands area, whilst it is located sea side- there is no beach sand out the front of the resort. You need to walk back towards central White Sands area to locate the sand.

Rooms are well appointed and the daily breakfast was great. Lacking was internet access in the room, we stayed in the hotel wing on the beach side of the road which overlooked the lady bar area (although our room looked outward over the sea). Considering we are in 2012 and the lack of 3G reception on the island Internet access in the room is a must. They do have free wifi in the lobby but it is open air and alot of mosqitoes are there.

Staff were friendly, but the pool area is super nice.

Eating in the restaurant near the pool was great (see photo contribution)

If having a beach is a must- select another hotel, otherwise if you pick this hotel up on a deal it would be worth the money.

This hotel was a good choice, stayed kasha resort last trip but booked here for Christmas 2012. Great reception upon arrival, drinks, warm welcome with nice intro to hotel and room. Nice lay out and kept very clean. 6am staff are out raking private beach, cleaning pool & water ways. Nice. deluxe Room beach side big, very modern in nice surroundings. Tv,DVD,fridge bath,shower Internet in room!? Maybe. Internet is present but could i connect in room.. No. Read this on few reviews... Reception say "signal room sometime" Shame this would make it perfect. Can get connected in or near reception tho no prob. Breakfast and room service is good. Room had no safe and back door wouldn't lock but this was sorted out in less that 1hr. Fair enough. Enjoying my stay here right now!

When we first arrived at the hotel, the welcome and drink was impeccable. We where showed the a room on the forth floor, and it was a good equipped Seaside deluxe, NOT sea view, as one might expect. There are trees in front of the balcony prohibiting any view of any sort except trees. The personnel are service minded and the cleaning is acceptable. One MAJOR draw back is the "beer bars" behind the hotel where music is played LOUD into the early morning, and it is of course a sad view on the way home at night!

There is no beach to speak of, the "pier" that belongs to the hotel is the only access to the water, and there is a bar/restaurant there that serve descent food and coctails.

All in all it is a worn down hotel, but still with it's charm. The only reason for not going back is the beer bars in the back, the tree view on th top floor, and no beach. Everything else is prime.

Room Tip: Stay away from 5301 to 5303 if you don't want to watch trees. There might be others, but that is...

Had great advice from another feedback report on this site to book a cheaper 'cliff side' room as you still get benefits of the spa across the road, this is what we did! Room lovely and great breakfast, pool in the resort across the road (same place) was wonderful with outlooks to the sea and private sunbed beaches area on sea front.

We ended booking up with the Chang Buri, because we couldn't get the place we wanted to stay at for the first night of our arrival. We also stayed at the hillside part of the hotel.

The Changburi is situated in White Sand Beach. It's divided by a busy road with the bungalows at the beach and the hotelrooms on the otherside of the road at the hillside. The part we stayed also looks really nice and smelled nice when we arrived the smell of some exotic flowers. We were offered a welcome cocktail which was really nice after our long journey.

Room is good. It has all the necessary amenities and the shower was excellent. The only drawback, was that i noticed ants on the desk. We had dinner at the beach restaurant of the hotel. It was ok, but nothing special but really affordable.

Breakfast was good. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay I would recommend the chang buri. The staff is very friendly and quick to offer help. Tho I haven't seen the bungalows on the seaside, I think that I would recommend those, as the view from our room was very dismal.

We booked in Pattaya on a package 3 night stay on the sea side, definitely a cheap way to go. Picked up from our accommodation in Pattaya at 8am we arrived at Chang Buri at 1.30pm. Check in was smooth and quick. Whilst the room we were shown was very nice we wanted to be closer to the ocean, and upgraded to a poolside villa. Absolutely wonderful! We has room service the first night - a fantastic large salmon and olive pizza for AUS$4.50. Thoroughly recommend this hotel, clean, comfortable beds and attentive service. Although seems to be lots of cheaper options around if you are on a budget.

Chang Buri resort and spa is a beautiful and very comfortable hotel located at a very convenient location . Hotel surroundings and the setting is beautiful and relaxing . One side is the green jungle other side has the ocean. Has ample sitting areas where one can easily sit for hours and just relax. Has many options within the hotel premises. Right next is 7/11 and many restaurants and small shops for small shoppings. Many tour agencies are also located within the walking distance. What more can one ask for. Breakfast menu is good. Rooms are nice , clean, comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed there before also and will go again.

Room Tip: Every room has an advantage or a view. We stayed at Hillside room therefore we had a good view of th...
