BeachBox @ Koh Сhang

BeachBox @ Koh Chang

Despite only being open since January 2019, BeachBox @ Koh Chang has racked up a very impressive number of super-positive reviews.  (Despite the box-like rooms not actually being on the beach.)

220 reviews
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)

But fear not, BeachBox is located just one minute’s walk from the laid back Hat Sai Noi beach on the south coast of Koh Chang. The accommodation is in stark, concrete and glass boxes. There are fan and air-conditioned rooms. 

The largest have two Queen size beds, making them ideal for a family travelling on a budget.  All are very simple and free from clutter.

Queen Bungalow at BeachBox @Koh Chang

The larger bungalows have one floor to ceiling glass wall which makes the rooms brighter than they would normally be – as they’re surrounded by tropical greenery.  Inside furniture is limited to the very bare essentials.  Plus a wall mounted flat screen TV and mattress on a concrete base, rather than actual bed. 

There isn’t a restaurant, although cold drinks are available,.  But guests can get breakfast at numerous restaurants on Hat Sai Noi or Klong Kloi beach.

From a business perspective it’s a very practical design.  Easy to keep clean and tidy and unlikely to go out of fashion any time soon. And for guests, the price is cheap but they get good value for money and can stay in a far more modern bungalow that they would be able to afford elsewhere on the island. 

As with many of the top rated resorts, what sets them apart from other places, and ensures the continuing great reviews, is the owner and the staff.  And BeachBox are certainly doing things the right way, with many guests commenting on how friendly and helpful the staff are. 

Overall, a definite recommendation for a budget bungalow in the south of Koh Chang. No real downsides other that no sea views and not being beachfront, but for the price, there’s nothing to really complain about.

Great long term base and our favourite restaurant ‘I do I do’ with it’s own small beach, was next door but one. 😀 - We spent a month at Beach Box in one of the basic rooms & thought it was excellent. The staff were lovely and location perfect; 200m from Klong Khoi beach which, having travelled around the whole island, is our favourite beach on the island. 😞 - Mattress could do with an upgrade. Coffee and tea making facilities would have been nice to have.
Superb 😀 - Located at the very end of the island. If you are not planning to move around a lot anyway this might be the right place for you. Only a couple of minutes distance from one of the most beautiful beach of the island. Rooms are cozy and comfortable. Definitely worths the price. 😞 - There is no common area.. So when you are there you have to stay at your room which is a little boring.
Pleasant 😀 - Beach Box without Beach!
Great place to stay if you like to dive and have quiet nights. 😀 - The hosts were very super friendly and helpful. The pool was okay and very quiet place at night. Close to Bang Bao if you are a diver. 😞 - The bed was strange but not too bad.
Nice, calm, safe accommodation near a beautiful (if rocky) little beach 😀 - Great location near a nice, super-quiet little beach, which although rocky at low tide is a really great place to hang out. Compound was quiet despite being next to a road, rooms felt v. safe & the couple working on reception were unbelievably kind & lovely. 😞 - Room was q. small & after a while felt a bit like living in a small car-park, no on-site cafe, bed was fine but could have been more comfortable.
Good 😀 - owner of places so kind friendly helpful beautiful people 😞 - they don’t have a comfortable mattress I was feeling like a sleep on the stone my backpack in 2 days gets pain I didn’t continue stay anymore suddenly I did check out and moved another places
