5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We are lucky to find this place! This is the end of our Thailand trip before entering Cambodia and you should not miss out Koh Chang on your vacation list, especially Garden Resort. The owner is very helpful in the how to's and where to's of the island. Fantastic location, near the beach, 7 elevens...you will love this place! wonderful people always smiling and very polite. Great deal for value. Will definitely come back.

Based on the reviews of Trip advisor we decided to stay for 4 nights in Garden Resort. It was as well our first visit to Ko Chang. With our 2 daughters (9 & 12 years old) we booked a family room. It is actually 2 rooms with a connecting door. The rooms have the basic comfort and are clean. Small but pleasent detail was how the staff folded the towels each morning in a certain shape.
Due to low season there is less staff available. However, with a 7-eleven around the corner and all the restaurants at the main road this was no problem for us. We prefer anyway to eat at different places every evening and we stocked the in room fridge with things we purchased outside.
We also bought mosquito coils. This is necessary if you like to sit outside.

The staff was more than helpful. Friendly and always ready to assist. The local staff speaks at least basic english as well, which is an added value for us.

As the title mentioned you get excellent value for money. They are not a 5 star resort and they do not pretent to be so either. For us I know we will go back the next time we plan a long weekend.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper or like to sleep in you should try to book a room at the back of the reso...

This resort was slightly out of our price range but we were travelling in the rainy season and decided to make sure we would be happy in spite of the bad weather and little to do many days.
The owner, Mouse, was friendly, kind, and could not have been more helpful.
The grounds were so beautiful we felt the beach was disappointing. We spent most of our time at the beautiful pool and on our little private deck.
The furniture is all large bamboo and natural hardwood constructed. Beautiful.
Hot water and AC worked perfectly.
There are waterfalls spread throughout the property so noise does not carry anywhere and you always feel like you are alone in the jungle. We were sitting on our deck 50' from the pool and never heard the people sitting around it due to the waterfall.
The new construction includes many three prong plug-ins, DVD!, satellite TV!, and everything else you need.
The staff were sweet, smiling, and helpful. This is not always our experience when travelling.
The grounds include a small bar in the evening, a pool table, and free buffet breakfast.
There is a DVD and book lending library.
There are shisha bars and many restaurants 100 yards away and a 7-11 next door for cheap beers and water.
We saw happy couples and families here.
Could not have asked for more.
Thanks Mouse.
We would come back in a heartbeat.

The Garden Resort is a nicely secluded holiday park, on walking distance from the beach. Not the best beach on Ko Chang though. The villas are really nicely decorated. The swimming pool and the breakfast is great. We had a great time there.

My sister and I are 30 something's from California. We loved our stay at Garden resort. Owner and his wife know the island wonderfully and recommended so many great spots we would not have found otherwise--kayaking, seafood restaurants, viewpoints. The wireless Internet was fast and reliable, the breakfast had tons of fresh fruit and eggs made to order. Next door massage salon was excellent. Short walk to the beach where we swam every day. Easy taxi ride from ferry. Walkable restaurants and bars but less built up than White Sands (which is way too commercial).

Stayed here for 6 nights in July. Great location for getting around that side of the island. Very clean rooms and surroundings. Nice green gardens and a very refreshing pool. Fantastic owner, maus, use him like a tour guide - he's great and very honest . Good happy hour from 5pm in backstage bar.

We stayed here twice now, friends recommended it initially. We loved our pool room, the gardens are lovely and the location is great, close to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. The resort is small and friendly with great rooms and spacious bathrooms.
The kids loved the salt water pool and dress use of DVDs.
The morning breakfast is great, simple, but with fresh bread and real coffee, that, for me at least is fundamentally important. A great time, recommended.
