Centara Koh Chang Tropicana Resort is one of the most popular resorts on Klong Prao beach. Accommodation in spacious bungalows or newer hotel rooms.  But the small beachfront that gets busy in high season. Convenient location though and a safe bet if you aren’t sure which hotel to choose.

Klong Prao Resort

March 15, 2013 – 6:21 PM |

Klong Prao Resort. Avoid the cheapest rooms and go for the much newer villas, good value from 2,500 Baht/night. Very good beach. Big downside is that it is popular with Russian package tourists. Bring your game face to the breakfast buffet and when grabbing a sun lounger – it is survival of the fittest.
