Siam Beach Resort occupies the prime, private location at the northern end of Lonely Beach on Koh Chang. The location, about 400 metres north from the nearest resort ensures that guests enjoy peace and quiet. However you are paying for the location rather than quality of resort.
Although there is plenty of late night bars and restaurants at the backpacker area at the southern end of the beach, most guests come here to unwind, laze on the beach and swim in the sea rather than to party. It is therefore very popular with families and guests of all ages.
All rooms have AC, western bathroom, cable TV an are furnished in a bright contemporary tropical style. Plus all have sea views. Between the low rise hotel blocks and the beach lies the swimming pool with large jacuzzi and sun deck.
However, pride of place at Siam Beach Resort goes to the handful of pool villas where you can literally step out of your room and onto the beach or enjoy a soak in the private plunge pool as you watch the sun go down. These are some of the best value pool villas on the island.
Despite some maintenance issues and rogue monkeys that like to steal food or belongings from balconies, it is a good all round 3 star resort for a mid-price family holiday. But as with many other decade old resorts, it is looking a bit tired in places and despite the staff being friendly, many guests have issues with rooms not being cleaned properly or staff not being as efficient as in other resorts.
