Kai Bae

Cliff Beach Resort

Cliff Beach Resort, Kai Bae, Koh Chang

Cliff Beach Resort is the northernmost resort on Kai Bae beach and occupies a great location, with some stunning views to be had from the clifftop infinity pool.  However, it’s showing it’s age now and needs some TLC

If you are going to stay here go for the newest rooms, ‘Cliff View’ which are by far the best.   Others have better views or are more suited for families but are pretty old and fading quickly.   But note the word ‘Cliff’, this indicates that you will be trudging up several flights of steep steps in order to get between your room and the beach.   You need to take care if you have been out of a few beers.  And obviously they aren’t ideal for older folks or young kids.

The highlights of the resort are the beach, which is great and the clifftop pool which, due to it’s location, rarely gets busy and has excellent views to the nearby islands.

And if you want to splash out then the Sea View Villas are well worth considering – spacious, bright & airy and with amazing views.

Nearer the beach are the family rooms which are in a garden area with a natural lotus filled lagoon.   A small children’s pool is also here, close to the beach restaurant.  Cliff Beach Resort also has some Budget rooms.  These are located in what was built as a shopping plaza on the opposite side of the main road. Most shops have long since closed and the resort has renovated some buildings to add guest rooms. Obviously no sea views.  

The beach is good and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.   Only downside is the price, you could do better for the same amount, and despite claims – you couldn’t really call it a 4 star overall.  So, Cliff Beach Resort is an OK back-up resort if your first choices are full.

Refres this nice place please. L9 😀 - Location , beach , really nice place. Room with a private swimming pool is actually why I gave quite a high score. 😞 - The hotel is not in very good shape. What is really sad. How much money and time takes to refresh this nice place, clean everything properly inside and outside. Paint all inside and outside, these are quite cheap changes which can increase the quality of this place.
Superb 😀 - Location close to restaurants and bars 😞 - Just needs a bit of TLC
Good value for many - you might get less than you expect 😀 - Location and beach were fenomenal. the upstair pool was amazing as well, despite the long walk 😞 - The hotel used to be a combined facility with the other hotel next door. They had a nice pool and a great bar by the beach, which is no longer available to the guests. They didn't clarify this on the reservation and the pictures included facilities that were not available to us. This made it feel deceiving and left a bad impression. Budget rooms need better lighting, they are VERY dark.
Superb 😀 - Bed was like sleeping on a cloud 😞 - A little run down but kept very well otherwise and staff were amazing 😁
Very good 😀 - Good location and good breakfast
Amazing place with an amazing view and sunset 😀 - Lovely place, we love it!You can still the the consequences and the missing income oh the last years, put if they start to clean the area, it will be the perfect spot to relax. The infinity pool is amazing (but it also should be cleaned to see the beauty! The stuff is really nice. The housekeeping is lovely! The rooms are comfortable and nice decorated. I highly recommend this place.
