Nature Beach Resort occupies a prime beachfront location on Lonely beach. It’s a great location to chill out, sunbathe and watch the sunset. Over the years it has changed from a backpacker hangout to a family friendly ‘flashpacker’ resort.
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)

All bungalows at Nature Beach Resort are ensuite and fully air-conditioned. The cheapest rooms, the ‘Budget’ rooms are located at the rear of the property. Next are the far more modern ‘Garden View’ rooms. And closest to the pool and beach are the ‘Front’ bungalows. Rooms all have brushed concrete floors and light wood decor, they aren’t dark and dingy
Whilst the Front bungalows are very nice they don’t open onto the beach, just the parking area or pool. So, I’d go for the ‘Garden View’ which benefit from being quieter and having less people walking past and save you a few hundred Baht.
The beachfront pool and restaurant ‘Nature Rocks’ are the focal point of the resort. The restaurant draws people in from many other resorts as it;s the best place to eat on the beach. There’s always a lively atmosphere. Choose to sit in one of the tales on tiered decks or laze on a beanbag on the sand. The food is also surprisingly good and value for money.
If you want to party then the busy bar area of Lonely Beach is around 5 – 10 minutes walk to the south, off the beach.
Nature Beach Resort is one of the best, and most popular, mid-size beach resorts on Koh Chang. A good, value for money choice for anyone looking for a comfy bungalow by the sea. But who also likes somewhere a bit lively. It’s not a place for those who want to spend their holiday chilling out in silence.
I would like to backtrack. 😀 - This hotel is very nice. Very friendly staff. Good and not expensive restaurant. Clean beach and very comfortable sea. 😞 - Far away from the food shop. Not within walking distance.
Very good 😀 - Pool, Bar, Beach, People was good. . 😞 - The budget room is a old bungalow without many comfort. If you like to stay there, go for the better one
It was low season and post covid, I’m sure as things improve it would be a great place to just chill for 5 days ! 😀 - The modern bungalow was lovely , stayed for 4 nights but (the cheaper ones at back are basic, was badly bitten there by mosquitoes as extended stay while waiting to move on somewhere else on island. Restaurant is good, most staff are lovely , but pricey, however if you are vegan or vegetarian, have dietary needs would avoid on long stay! It was out of season so couldn’t get fruits, so glad we didn’t get breakfast included, as set menu! . It’s a taxi ride to eat elsewhere (taxi’s on Koh Chang are expensive , better a scooter hire ) Resort good for solo, couples and families , as beach is lovely and clean, uncluttered from plastic or rubbish and no sand flies as other beaches had! Beds and pillows comfortable and cotton sheets ! 😞 - No ability to water refill. Two small complimentary bottle given per day, Lots of plastic waste ! Sun beds dirty , limited umbrellas for shade, one towel provided per day for pool beds but doesn’t cover the dirty mats! Food containers left overnight and not cleared up! Pool and shower/ communal areas could do with a little more cleaning and glass on tables smashed so need removing and updating. 3% charge as won’t take via booking is added at check in, or when paying foods by card it’s 3%, plus along with deposit for 1000 bht for key returned on check out!
Exceptional 😀 - Have stayed in a few places on Koh Chang and this was my favourite by far! The facilities are perfect - great restaurant/bar area right on the beach. You can swim right off the front of the hotel in the sea and the pool is also great. You can easily walk to other bars in the area if you want to. I had one of the 'front' double rooms - was really modern and plenty of space. Heaven! 😞 - Breakfast not so great for vegetarians but OK - would maybe go without the breakfast option if I stayed again as they have great options for lunch for vegetarians so would probably just push through. HOWEVER, I stayed during the low season and I heard them mention they would have a buffet during high season which might provide better options for dietary restrictions.
Exceptional 😀 - Super friendly staff and helpful. Great restaurant. Great white and wide sandy beach with hardly anyone, probably 1km long. Also clean swimmingpool. Quiet area but easy to go around on a motorbike you can rent there or 5 minute walk away is another motorbike rent who I used 1 day. My second time there and love it. This is not in the "party area" but stands there on it´s own where you can relax and enjoy the beach and sun. 😞 - I´m a fan of powerful hot shower.. this was medium hehe..
