Kai Bae

Gajapuri Resort & Spa

Gajapuri Resort, Kai Bae beach, Koh Chang

Gajapuri Resort & Spa is a boutique designer hut resort for people seeking luxury but in teak wood, rather than concrete, surroundings.   It is very nicely done and is a good alternative to an impersonal, generic 4 star resort.   No obvious downsides as far as the standards of accommodation go.

The staff also seem to be on the ball, efficient and speak good English. and get rave reviews for their service minded attitude. Likewise the breakfast is great with the emphasis on healthy eating.   The location is also very convenient with plenty of places to eat and drink within 5 minutes walk of the resort.

Accommodation is divided into two areas, one which is for adults only and the other which is family friendly. Both areas have their own pools.  The ‘Lanai’ type rooms you’ll see listed on booking sites are those which don’t allow any kids to stay. Meaning that you can relax, read a book etc without any noise from neighboring rooms.

In addition to the teak villa sand pool villas, there are also some beachfront tents.  These 100sqm, luxury tented villas would be a great choice for couples who enjoy staying in somewhere a little out of the ordinary.

The only negative would be that the beach isn’t great, it is narrow and the trees on the shoreline, whilst keeping the resort private, also block the views – so no real point in paying for a sea view room and you can’t easily sunbathe on the beach.   You’ll just have to make do with the more private sun loungers in the garden area adjacent to the beach or by the pool or just just chill out in the privacy of your pool villa. Tough life. :-)

Highly recommended 😀 - The resort was absolutely lovely, just what we wanted. Quiet, plenty of space & the staff were brilliant in every regard. They certainly went above & beyond, my birthday fell in our time at the resort & not only did i receive a delicious creme caramel cake at breakfast but the whole staff serenade me with 'Happy Birthday'. A delightful birthday message was left on our bed. I would highly recommend the resort. The breakfast was outstanding. A wonderful assortment to choose from. We were a group of 6 & everyone was of the same opinion. 😞 - The beer wasn't cold enough!!! ;)
