Chivapuri Beach Resort
Chivapuri Resort is the only luxury option on Klong Kloi beach, once of the most scenic beaches on Koh Chang.
The beach is located on the southern coast of Koh Chang. From the beach there are excellent views south to the outlying islands. On a clear day you can see as far as Koh Kood. With only 20 rooms, located in spacious houses over-looking the gardens, guests are guaranteed personal attention by the well trained staff.
The beach has several restaurants and bars on it and is popular with daytrippers coming from other areas of Koh Chang to hang out. However, it quietens down at night and guests will enjoy hanging out at the laid back beach bars. In the past couple of years there’s been quirte a lot of development on the beach and just off the beachfront you’ll now find quite a few small shops and minimarts. So there’s no longer a need to go to Bangbao village, 30 minutes walk away to buy supplies.
If you do want to venture out then getting to the other main beaches is a bit of a hassle and you have the steep winding road to navigate from Bangbao to Kai Bae. Bear that in mind if you plan on renting a scooter to get around.

Chivapuri Resort was a lovely resort to stay in on our last trip to Koh Chang. It was a perfect way for us to relax and recharge after a fflying to Thailand and then having a few days in hectic Bangbkok.
It was peaceful and offered offered a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere. We stayed in the fringe season, so it wasn’t a very busy period for the resort so there were just a few guests here. Although the resort was huge, the operation was personal and very sleek. The entire resort’s décor was modern but with a subtle Thai design.
We arrived here a few hours before dinner. So we decided to go straight to our rooms and had a rest. I just thought we deserved it after a long day of traveling. WiFi here wasn’t available. There was a connection in the lobby but was slow. I hope they can fix that.
Our entire room was uber spacious. It consisted of a living room with a dining area plus the massive bedroom. Our bed was fabulous. It was a heavenly bed. I think the owner of this resort reinvented sleep experience. Our room had a coffee maker which was another great touch.
Its beach was lovely, too. Very few people around, so it was like we had our own private beach at times which was wonderful.
Our experience at Chivapuri Beach Resort was great. And we’d love to stay here again. When? That we don’t know yet.
