VJ Bed and Breakfast is located in Klong Prao village at the rear of Klong Prao temple. (So, if there’s a cremation, remember to close your window to keep the ash out.) The beach is a couple of hundred metres away as the crow flies but getting there involves either walking through a deserted construction site or through Barali Resort or Centara Tropicana Resort.
It’s a pretty quiet location though, off the main road but within 5 minutes walk several small local shops, restaurants etc where you can pick up very cheap beers and food. Don’t expect frills or pampering but there are very few places on Koh Chang where you can get an airconditioned room with sea view, wifi, cable TV and a pool for just over 1,000 Baht/night in high season.
True the ‘Bed and Breakfast’ resembles a poorly designed 1980s apartment block, but if you’re on a limited budget and just need a fairly clean, airconditioned place to lay your head then why not? They also run a free shuttle service to their sister hotel, the beachfront VJ Searenity Resort, at the southern end of Klong Prao beach.
Room Rates for 2017-18: From around 1,100 Baht High Season or a Sea View room for 1,300 Baht including breakfast
