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.)

257 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.

Very good 😀 - Its a calm and relaxing place, clean and sealed (yes: no bugs, neighbours noises etc). It was that good that we came back. There is a swimming pool where you can chill if its too hot. Very nice owners 😞 - No storage place in a room

Exceptional 😀 - Clean, comfortable bed, good location near the beach. Very friendly owners. With swimming pool, I would come back!!
Simple, clean and air on and great value. The owners are lovely 😀 - Exactly as described and photographed, the owners were absolutely delightful, so very friendly and welcoming 😞 - If it were me, I’d put up a couple of shelves simply to store clothes and bags off the floor, one for clothes and another small one for tech by the tv?
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.
