Kai Bae

Garden Resort, Kai Bae

Garden Resort,Kai Bae beach, Koh Chang

Garden Resort Kai Bae, as the name suggests, isn’t by the beach.   It is located on the inland side of the main road in the centre of Kai Bae village, a two minute walk to the beach.  A small, value for money resort with a good restaurant.

Pool at Garden Resort, Koh Chang

The area around the resort is pretty built up but noise doesn’t appear to be an issue for most guests.   However, it would be better to stay as far from the restaurant and entrance as possible as a bar with live music is directly opposite.  

There’s also an elephant camp close by and you’ll often see their young elephants taking a morning walk down to the beach to swim.  A good variety of small shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance.

The comfortable, but not luxurious, well maintained bungalows are from around 2,500 Baht/night in High Season.   You could pay the same for a bungalow on the beach. But the western management at Garden Resort always gets very positive reviews and having someone knowledgeable on hand who speaks your language often makes your stay easier and hassle free.

Definitely recommended as a good, safe choice for first timers to the island. (And looks a lot better in real life than the photos on booking sites suggest.  They could do with updating.)

Blurry phoot of Garden Resort

Great! 😀 - Welcoming and professional staff but also very comfortable. Well thought out with everything you could need and liked the smaller touches like fridge remaining on when out of room and smart tv (both unusual at this price point in Thailand). 😞 - The resort (ie Kai Bae) is one of the more touristy on Ko Chang - but this is personal preference.
Comfortable stay at Kai Bae 😀 - Good breakfast for 150 bhat. Owner mouse was great. Top location. 😞 - Having to leave comfortable
Superb 😀 - The resort is at a great location on Kai Bae beach, surrounded by lots of restaurants, shops and bars. The resort was very peaceful and the owners and staff were very welcoming, making us feel at home. Breakfast was good and the pool was welcoming after a hot day. The resort is not far from the beach with its beautiful warm sea. Would definitely recommend the Garden Resort, you can book with confidence. Hoping to be back one day. Take care all of you at the Garden Resort and thank you for your smiles and happiness. 😞 - Nothing
Exceptional 😀 - Everything was perfect. The owner and is wife are very nice. The staff is very professional and frendly. The swimingpool is perfect. It is very clean. Maybe the best place to stay in Ko Chang ! 😞 - Nothing
Good resort. Good value. Bon établissement. Bon rapport qualité-prix. 😀 - The kindness of staff and boss. La gentillesse de l équipe et du responsable. Quiet place. Sleep well. Endroit calme. On dort bien. Swimming pool good. Have enough long chair. La piscine est bien. Il y a assez de chaises longues. Restaurants not far by foot. "Happy" one is good. Des restaurants juste à côté dont le "Happy", bon. 😞 - Nothing. Rien.
Champion! 😀 - The staff are the friendliest and most attentive I have ever met, and the owner too. They treat you like you are family. This is the second time I have stayed and I didn't want to leave again. We will be back as soon as possible! 😞 - No breakfast available, but it's the low season and the breakfast is usually fantastic at any other time.
