Deluxe room at Elephant Bay Resort, Bailan

The rooms are also well known for their original and quirky décor. Each room has a wall design which was created by a different local artist.  So although rooms have the same amenities, they all have a different character.  However, the rooms are quite basic and some guests feel they are beginning to show their age.  But they are value for money.

Unlike most other budget resorts on Koh Chang, Elephant Bay Resort has a wall around it and just one main entrance and exit.  Meaning that it offers privacy and security to guests. 

So, if you’re on a budget of 1,000 Baht a night and need a pool, a place to meet fellow travelers and an AC room, Elephant Bay Resort might be worth a look.

Exceptional 😀 - Everything 😞 - Nothing
Absolute bliss on Koh Chang 😀 - Elephant Bay Resort, is a long drive from the ferry, but once you get there it's absolute bliss. Good size rooms, ensuite bathroom,big beds and an Aircon that works well. The resort also rents out motorbikes, so exploring the island is a breeze. There is an in-house restaurant which makes some good food. Apart from that there are quite a few places to eat outside the resort. The views from the resort are amazing and the sunsets breathtaking. The owner Rem and his wife are doing a fantastic job. They make you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. Highly recommend Elephant Bay Resort and will definitely visit whenever I am on the island again. 😞 - You can't really step onto the rocky beach outside the resort. But it makes up with the glorious views from the poolside deck.
Best location, enjoyed watching sunset over the ocean. 😀 - Lovely location with a view of sunset over the ocean whilst having a drink in the pool. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Having a working aircon was a bonus. 😞 - None
Passable 😀 - Sea view 😞 - There was someone else's leftover food in the refrigerator, and the bed was old and very uncomfortable. It wasn't cleaned properly so there were a lot of spiders, ants and bugs.
The resort has a very good cost-value-relationship for low budget travelers. 😀 - The children loved the swimming pool and the dog. I preferred the bar and the beer. The staff was always very polite. 😞 - One room had no TV and the door was defect. By this way some bugs entered the facility. The kids named the last phase of the highway to Elefant Bay Resort "Thanon Halloween".
Relaxing in peaceful environment 😀 - Nice maintained pool with good water quality overlooking the sea. Peaceful and friendly environment. We stayed in September (low season) it was very nice and quiet. Friendly & helpful staff speaking good English. We had a scooter so location was fine. Restaurants and mini mart within walking distance. 😞 - Rooms in particular need maintenance to freshen then up.
