KB Resort is overall, one of the nicest beachfront bungalow resorts on the island. As the resort has expanded over the years the owners though and so the atmosphere has changed. The owners have resisted the temptation to cram in more bungalows. But a hotel block was added and the restaurant and beach bar have been totally renovated during the past few years.
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2019. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)
The bungalows, whilst certainly not luxurious are a good 3 star standard and are clean and well maintained. Fan, AC, beachfront and family bungalows are available. They are set in a lush garden area with mature trees providing plenty of shade. The beachfront restaurant is also one of the best in the area with well priced Thai dishes and BBQ seafood. And the adjacent beach bar, complete with hanging swing chairs, is a very pleasant spot for a sunset cocktail.
The swimming pool was built when this was still a small scale bungalow resort. Nowadays, with the addition of the large hotel block that houses the Superior rooms, it can get packed during High Season. the spacious family bungalows are adjacent to the pool area and so can get noisy.
Roadside shops and restaurants are only a minute’s walk away. So, if you are looking for a good, but not luxurious, beachfront bungalow, you can’t really go wrong here. No qualms in recommending it. Compare this with the neighbouring Kai Bae Beach Resort and see which you prefer.
Fantastic holiday 😀 - Staff was very helpful and friendly , breakfast was excellent hotel is in perfect location . 😞 - Nothing
Beautiful sea view bungalows 😀 - Great location, very comfortable bed, nice seating area in front of the bungalow 😞 - The "sea view" bungalow that we booked at first, wasn't really sea view (there was another bungalow in front of) and it was the same price as the other ones with much better view. If it is not really sea view it should be cheaper than the other ones. In order to have a real sea view we were forced to switch the bungalow and paid additionally.
great resort hotel. would stay again 😀 - bungalows very nice. breakfast was good. nice pool. lovely beach area. 😞 - few bugs in the bathroom, had to keep bathroom door shut throughout our stay.
Very good 😀 - The location is amazing! The breakfast is delicious, and you can sit in front of the ocean in the morning with a cup of coffee. The bed is comfortable. There are many restaurants close to the resort. 😞 - The resort can feel a bit outdated and can use a little renovation. Also, there are no nets for the windows and door.
amazing! 😀 - Amazing beach, walk distance to everything but yet remote. Very cozy bungalows- the pictures does not do them justice. staff very friendly. The best place I have stayed in Koh Chang so far. 😞 - -
A lovely elephant experience 😀 - At breakfast, we always had a variety of choices. Lots of fruits, cereals, meats, and Thai dishes to choose from. There was always a lady there cooking eggs for your choice of style. The dining area is next to the sea, so it is always a lovely view. The room was spacious with a large comfortable bed & 4 pillows. There are USB ports on both sides of the bed and under the TV. The front porch had a large table with bench seats and a large round wicker seat. The beach area is very clean, however the area is narrow for a beach. The most amazing thing is that the elephants are brought down to the sea to swim & play. The handlers were always pleasant with people, encouraging engagement with the elephants, especially the baby calves. Plus, they never asked for money for photos or rides. This is a great location near shops, restaurants & bars, within walking distance. But still quiet. 😞 - Just needed a second bench cushion.
