Fine Times Resort

Fine Times Resort, Chai Chet, Koh Chang

Fines Times Resort fill a gap in the villa rental market on Koh Chang.  Instead of focusing on high end properties or just trying to get monthly or yearly rentals, this collection of studio, one bedroom and family bungalows and houses offer self catering for very reasonable rates.

Fine Times Resort was originally built as longstay accommodation with bungalows rented out monthly or yearly.  However they have since pivoted, built additional houses and now offer simple bungalows and houses for visitors who want more space or to cook for themselves and are on a limited budget.

The resort is located off the main road about 5 minutes walk from the northern end of Klong Prao beach.  The original villas are built on a hillside.  Down below there’s a motley collection of multi-coloured bungalows.  These are the cheapest options at around 1200 – 1400 Baht/night during High Season.  But they also have a small but well equipped kitchen area. 

On the opposite side of the access road lie the more modern one bedroom bungalows.  These are much smarter in appearance and set in a pleasant garden area. They are a few hundred baht more expensive.  

Finally there are the larger villas on the hillside which are suitable for families.  These are the oldest buildings but also have the best location.  Pleasant jungle views and usually with a cool breeze.

Fine Times Resort is a good example of filling a need that some visitors have to cater for themselves and save money by staying off the beach.  The houses are cleaned daily and the owners live on site so are always around to help visitors make arrangements for trips or onward travel.  Prices are low and value is high.  The beach is only 5 minutes walk away, as are a bank, supermarket and good choice of shops and restaurants.  

Recommended if you don’t need all the facilities that a resort offers, such as buffet breakfast and a swimming pool & want a kitchen to prepare your own meals. 

One bedroom house for rent at Fine Times Resort, Chai Chet, Koh Chang

A little bit of paradise on an island 😀 - The solitude, listening to the sound of the birds and geckos, enjoying the occasional rain shower, all of the above was therapeutic. The bungalow was neat and clean and had a huge fridge, cooking outside on the deck was just awesome. It's just great. 😞 - Nothing to not like from me . I'm sure there are some people who would have a list of complaints about things that are not there, but I think what is there is enough.
Exceptional 😀 - Will definitely stay again
Very nice bungalows with a small but complete kitchen 😀 - The owner is very helpful. We got a room upgrade because all houses were full 😞 - -
lovely and cozy 😀 - a nice quiet road, the beds were very comfortable, kitchenette is good for making breakfast, there are kettle, induction hob, toaster and fridge with essential kitchen utensils so it’s very good. the shower head is great and powerful. for us we enjoyed the stayed and a visit from the cat on our porch on one morning, very lovely cat :)
thank you so much
😞 - lots of ants around the outside on the porch but the man gave us ants spray and it was fine after spray
quiet, clean bungalow close from the beach with great hosts 😀 - Great location, close from everything but a bit outside of the main road so it's very quiet. The bungalows are large, well equipped with a nice terrace to relax. Very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They do everything for you to have a great stay. I rented a nice and cheap scooter through them, booked my bus and ferry ticket. I loved the place and extended my stay for 4 more nights. I'll be back
😞 - small ants in the kitchen. nothing else, everything is great
The owner and his wife were immediately available. Accommodation met our expectations at 120%. 😀 - We lived in a practically arranged bungalow. The front porch was to rest, the back yard to dry clothes, barbecue, etc. The bedroom is separate from the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with saucepans, pans, cutlery, mugs, toaster, cooker (induction!), Microwave, plates and of course fridge. Making a quick breakfast is easy. It was perfectly cleaned every day as well as clean towels. Quiet location near a busy street.
😞 - The electrical outlets were worn out and did not hold the charging adapters.
