Koh Chang Lagoon Resort
Koh Chang Lagoon Resort is situated smack in the centre of White Sand beach. If you want to be in the thick of the action and have all the amenities you require within 2 minutes walk then it doesnt get better than this.
However, the resort is a bit dated. As you’ll see from the room photos. It was built at a time when Thai visitors, with their love of ice cold aircon and cave-like rooms were the target guests. But as far as location goes the beachfront rooms do represent good value for money. There’s a new annex, called Koh Chang Princess, on the opposite side of the road which features run of the mill 3 star standard hotel rooms. Again, great location and good if you just need a mid-price room close to the beach.
A big plus is the new beachfront pool that was built in 2014. This makes a huge difference and is great for kids or those wanting to do laps. ( Freeform pools are undeniably pretty but they’re useless for people who actually want to swim in a pool. )
Overall, if you’re on a budget and want to be beachfront in a busy location, then go for it. But not a place to stay if you’re looking for peace and quiet.
