When my fiancé and I were searching for a beach resort to spend our honeymoon at, we came across the Kai Bae Beach Resort. I had read many reviews of Koh Chang being one of the most beautiful places in Thailand so I did I little more research and found that the Kai Bae Beach Resort was a good choice and within our (limited ) budget.
The resort is surrounded by huge coconut trees and breathtaking views of the sandy beach. We were pleased to find out that the bungalow we had booked was a couple-friendly, low key, and private. Yet, right by the beach
The price we paid to stay in the room per night was low in relation to the service quality we received. he moment we stepped into the hotel the concierge came rushing to our service. He carried all our bags and escorted us to our room as soon as we checked in. The hospitality of all the employees at the Kai Bae Beach Resort was excellent. We were politely greeted by happy, smiling faces and felt a warm welcome from everyone.
The room we booked was exceptionally large and clean. We had tons of space to ourselves and did not feel overcrowded by the room itself. The room lighting came with dimmers which was a great addition to the overall ambience of the bungalow.
The hotel offered great amenities too. We booked a private couples’ massage that was definitely worth the expense. Room service was available 24/7. We had a fast and stable Wi-Fi connection in our room and within the hotel at all times.
Now let us move on to the food. We were given complimentary breakfast each morning of our stay. We would head down to the hotel restaurant (which was lovely btw) anytime between 7 and 11 and enjoy our complimentary breakfast buffet. Each morning the chefs would serve a variety of foods including eggs, bacon, turkey, cereals, pancakes and waffles, hash browns, fresh fruits, salads, breads and butter, parfaits and yogurt, fresh juices, hot tea and coffee, even local delicacies, and much more. So plenty of choice each day.
Usually we didn't bother with lunch and just ate again in the evening. A couple of times at the resort, which was Ok but we found the best food in the restaurants on the roadside. There's a small Thai place, who's name I forget, located opposite the entrance to the resort. They did proper, spicy Thai dishes.
The overall experience at the Kai Bae Beach Resort was great. Everyone was amazing and super friendly and advised us on the best places to visit within the island. This saved us quite a lot of time and money.
We would definitely give this place double thumbs up. Although we spent an amazing time at the hotel as a couple, I would recommend it to every from from singles to families.
