YuYu Golden Beach has become one of the most popular budget beach bungalow resorts on Koh Chang. No frills, just the basics. But excellent value for sun-worshipers.
YuYu Golden Beach is one of the first places visitors come to when they walk over the footbridge from the main road to Klong Kloi beach. It comprises of fan and air-conditioned bungalows and a large beachfront restaurant.
The restaurant is one of the best on the beach. In the evening you’ll see it packed with diners and during the day the sunloungers outside are a popular spot to relax and enjoy a cold drink. Accommodation at YuYu Golden beach is in fan and air-conditioned bungalows.
The Fan rooms are cheap, just a few hundred Baht / night but are rather dingy and showing their age. However, the bright green, AC bungalows are compact and a far better option for around 1,500 Baht/night. Some are located just behind the restaurant and other at the rear of the property, facing onto the lagoon behind the beach. Those by the restaurant are quite noisy but are fine if you aren’t planning on sleeping early and are just here to sunbathe and socialise.
The larger bungalows by the lagoon have a shady balcony by the water with views of the inland mountains. A nice spot to escape the sun and chill out for a while. All bungalows have the basics, including a hot shower and cable TV. But that’s about it. There’s no exotic artwork or attention to detail. Just whitewashed walls and basic furniture.
YuYu Golden beach is recommended for folks who enjoy the simpler things in life. Aircon at night, good food, new friends to have a beer with and lazing by the beach. And who don’t see the need to pay a lot of money to get them.
