White Sand Beach

Changburi Resort & Spa

Changburi Resort & Spa,White Sand beach, Koh Chang

The first thing to note is that Changburi Resort & Spa is basically two totally different resorts.  Changburi Hillside and Changburi Resort.  In the past they operated under separate names but are now advertised as being the same resort.  Which is odd, as the seafront resort is infinitely nicer than the inland hotel block.

Down by the beach you have accommodation in luxury villas, some with private plunge pools.  The rooms are spotlessly clean and very stylish. Adjacent to this is a large pool, deck area and at the rear of the property are the hotel rooms. The more basic, less well maintained Hillside block is on the opposite side of the main road.  It’s still clean and has friendly staff but is a bit worn around the edges. 

Poolside Villas at Changburi Resort & Spa

If your priorities lie with firstly getting a very good room and the beach is secondary then the villas are a excellent option.   But you probably won’t be going in the sea very often.   The ‘beach’ at this far southern end of White Sand beach is rocky with very little sand.  You’ll need to walk 5 minutes north to find a nicer stretch of sand

The resort offers comfort and privacy, which is rare on White Sand beach . So if you want to stay in luxury on the busiest beach on Koh Chang but like to be just a few minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle, then this is a good choice.

Also worth noting that there is a small beer bar area – Little Pattaya – very close to the resort.  This can get a bit noisy in High Season, you’ll notice some comments about this in reviews.

Hillside rooms at Changburi Resort

Okay stay - hotel needs serious maintenance 😀 - Hotel has 2 different buildings - the one on the hillside is a 2 Star. We paid extra to upgrade to the beachfront area. 😞 - The only access to the ocean for swimming is down a ramp between rocks - there is no sea sand at all. Room is getting tired - we stayed for 10 days and the maintenance people had to come out daily to either repair the AC or plumbing or TV
Good 😀 - Exceptional friendly staff. Good breakfast.lovely pool 😞 - None
Passable 😀 - I liked the look of the room and the Hotel was nice, looking - especially the pools. The staff was friendly. 😞 - We stayed on the Hillside and all the rooms there, smell like old mould. They really have a problem with humidity, wich takes alot from the experience.
Superb 😀 - Nice place good pool 😞 - No english talking in reception
If you get a good deal on this hotel, I highly, highly recommend ! 😀 - Very comfortable property. Amazing outdoor / pool area. Lovely clean spacious room. Wonderful breakfast. Great location. 😞 - Don’t get discouraged that it’s not “beachfront” It’s ocean front and you can still swim directly in front of the hotel (only thing is missing is sand).
Like paradise 😀 - Spacious Villa. Fantastic staff. Excellent location with great scenery. 😞 - None

  • We stayed on the beach-side hotel. We stayed for 2 nights before moving to Kacha Hotel up the road. Loved every minute of our stay and wish we hadn’t moved!

    Although you cannot walk straight onto the beach the hotels pool is absilutely beautiful with amazing view, good spot for sunbathing and watching the sun go down. Very clean everywhere, staff are all exceptionally friendly but not pretencious and extremely helpful. The room was really lovely and stylish. Housekeeping did a good job of little finishing touches -much appreciated.

    Overall, very peaceful and classy.
