Kacha Resort, White Sand beach

Koh Chang Kacha Resort has been one of the most popular resorts on the island since it first opened.   A few years ago the addition of a huge new hillside wing, featuring some extremely spacious and good value Family Suites, increased the popularity of this 4 star resort.  And in late 2014, the new beachfront villas opened.

The downside though is whilst the size of the hotel has more than doubled, it only has a relatively short frontage onto the beach and the small beachfront pool area is regularly packed.   The new annex has it’s own very large pool, which looks onto nothing more exciting that the rear of some roadside shop units.

The beachfront features hotel rooms and a couple of types of ‘villa’.   In the Hillside annex which opened in late 2009, you’ll find Deluxe rooms and various types of Suites.     These Deluxe   rooms and the 80sqm Family Suites appear to be good value for money.  The beachfront villas aren’t stand alone, they’re just very nice hotel rooms which open out onto a garden area that leads down to the beach.  I was hoping for a more interesting design but whilst they wont Wow you with their architectural splendour, there’s no doubting the appeal of a very comfortable room in a great beachfront location.

Main downside is that due the the limited amount of poolside area with seaviews, pre-dawn sunbed wars are guaranteed. In addition the beach directly outside the hotel isn’t as good as that further to the north   But Kacha has room prices and types to suit various budgets and is a safe bet for couples and families wanting a good, conveniently located beach resort.

  • We stayed in the newly open Hillside part in December 09. Very family orientated, especially by the pool. If you were to spend few hours aroun the pool it does indeed feels like you’re in package holiday resort in Costa del Sol rather than Koh Chang. The other pool by the beach side is far too small and over crowded.

    Staff werent particularly helpful or friendly, which is unusual for Thais. The room was nice, but having spent the same amount of money in Chang Buri down the road for much better quality rooms couple of nights before….we felt abit let down.

    Worth staying if you get a good deal otherwise save your money for something better!

  • 2009 was our second year in a row to the Kacha resort which has changed for the worse. Slow service (over an hour to get a sandwich which arrived eventually with no apology). Some staff were surly and rude (but certainly not all). Not all the facilities advertised were available. For the money you must pay to “enjoy” this resort we all felt rather cheated this year, and will not return.

    P.S. Avoid star beauty and salon which is located very near the resort. They are not to be trusted.

  • My kids loved this resort. 2010 will be our third time on koh Chang and third time at Kacha. Enjoy!
