Siam Bay Resort is in a secluded location at the far southern end of Kai Bae Beach. It’s a very peaceful spot with no loud bars, annoying beach vendors or guests from other resorts wandering past your bungalow.
It was one of the first resorts on Koh Chang but recently it has undergone a dramatic facelift with new beachfront bungalows, sea view villas, pool villas and reception, restaurant and pool area all been constructed a few years ago. Some of the older hillside bungalows remain and these provide inexpensive, but a bit shabby, accommodation for families of 4-7 people.
The new sea view and pool villas provide some good value accommodation. The sea view villas are 60sqm in size and pool villas are approximately 100sqm and cost less than a standard room at many of the larger 3 star beachfront resorts on the island. However, you shouldn’t expect the same levels of service, cleanliness and maintenance at Siam Bay as you can as more expensive resorts or even those which are smaller and better run.
Of course the downside is that due to the peaceful location, it is a bit of a walk to get to the bright lights of Kai Bae village. About 15 minutes walk along the beach to the north. So this isn’t a resort for anyone who loves their nightlife. But for families on a budget or anyone looking for some good value, quiet bungalows then it can be recommended.
Room rates for the 2017 – 2018 High Season are from 2,400 Baht/night for very spacious 60Sqm sea view villa and 3,000 Baht/night for a beachfront bungalow.
