This resort is very popular with Thai groups, so before you book check that you aren’t staying over   a long weekend of Thai public holiday as the resort will be packed out and room rates higher.   The resort doesn’t offer as many frills as other beach bungalow resorts right on the sand and the rooms obviously have never been touched by an interior designer, and are a bit dated but with AC bungalows for under 2,500 Baht/night in high season it’s a good combination of location, views and price.

Sea View Villas, Chai Chet Resort

The Sea View Villas which have amazing views across the bay are the highlight of the resort.   These are very spacious and are better value than similar accommodation in many other resorts.   and the panoramic views from the inland mountains, along the length of Klong Prao beach and to the outlying islands are awesome. 

The cheaper rooms are tucked away from the sea on a hillside and also by a small inlet from the sea. This is an interesting area as you will see some of the locals who still fish for a living taking their boats out and also returning and sorting their catch, fixing nets etc.

The rocky headland is a great place to watch the sunset and the resort also has it’s own jungle trekking trail that takes you along  a path that runs by the some before cutting back over the headland to the resort.   All the shops, restaurants you need are close by on the main road which is a couple of minutes walk away.  But the resort’s own restaurant is inexpensive and serves very good Thai food. 

If the view from your room is paramount, then there aren’t many better options on Koh Chang than the Sea View Villas at Chai Chet Resort. 

Room at Chai Chet Resort, Klong Prao beach

Enjoyable 😀 - The Villa and setting 😞 - The breakfast had a poor choice
Disappointing. Where do the 4 stars come from? 😀 - Nice location. 😞 - The entire resort needs a thorough makeover. Rooms are dirty and very badly maintained. The most disturbing fact however is the amount of Russians in the resort. Rude, unfriendly people.........especially to polite people like Thai are this must be very offending. The entire island is becoming a Russian enclave. Westerners.........stay away. The hotel owners and project developers are ruining the island, just like Pattaya, Hua Hin and more places.
Great location Great Tim! 😀 - Breakfast buffet
Exceptional 😀 - Best staff we had on Ko Chang. Amazing jungle vibe, nice views, good snorkel spot 😞 - Breakfast is good but a bit basic. No other negative points
Pleasant 😀 - Pool 😞 - Breakfast for vegetarian/vegan almost not existing.
Very good 😀 - Everything was mostly well. Nice territory, wonderful views to the sea and the rocks.
😞 - The breakfast could be more variable.
The matress and the pillows are quite hard (not soft at all)
It would be great to open the room windows to enjoy the sound of the sea and fresh blow of the wind. Not obly the aircon
