Pearl Beach Hotels

Koh Chang Resortel

Koh Chang Resortel is a large 2* resort on Pearl beach.  Ideal if you like swimming as it has two huge pools – including the only 50m pool on the island. Good as a back up option if first & second choice resorts are full in Peak Season. Easy to get to White Sand or Klong Prao beaches.


Koh Chang Resortel is one of those resorts that you would easily miss if you didn’t know it was there.   It’s as though they go in for the stealth approach to attracting guests.   You wont see many adverts for them and unless you know where to look you’ll miss the sign by the roadside. Despite this it is a huge resort.

All this leads to the (correct) assumption that the resort is geared up for Thai visitors and package tourists who come with their own guide and don’t really know where they are staying until they reach the resort itself.

The rooms are big spacious and dark with thick blackout curtains blocking out any light and allowing you to sleep until noon.   All rooms look out over one of two pools.   By the beach is a smaller freeform pool, whilst in the centre of the resort is an Olympic sized pool – 50 metres long with 8 lanes including those old fashioned concrete starting blocks last seen in the Moscow Olympics in 1980.

If you enjoy a long morning swim this is the resort for you – as you won’t be swimming in the sea due to the stony shoreline.

Worth a look if you are travelling with Thai friends or family or if you are visiting during peak season and your first, second and third choice of resorts are full as you can be pretty sure you can get a room here.   Prices aren’t bad but virtually all reviews mention the poor standard of service here.
