Koh Chang Lagoon Princess is situated smack in the centre of White Sand beach. If you want to be beachfront and in the thick of the action, with all the amenities you require within 2 minutes walk then the location doesn’t get better than this.
(This score is based on the number of written reviews on Booking.com since 1 November 2018. Because recent reviews are more relevant than those from many years ago.)
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 are a couple of beachfront bungalows which are very popular. If you are planning your holiday a long time in advance, try to grab one. They’re literally a couple of steps from the sand.
There’s a new annex on the opposite side of the road, where cheaper, brighter rooms are located. Not the most stylish rooms you’ll find, but they have a balcony with sunset view. Again, great location and good if you just need a mid-price room close to the beach.
A big plus is the beachfront pool. 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 medium 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 or a luxurious, romantic getaway.
Fantastic 😀 - Everything , right on the beach, nice pool, very good quality food ( we run a restaurant so we are fussy) great little cocktail bar and rooms are comfortable nice staff as well there’s also a good gym over the road for residents to use 😞 - The room we stayed in didn’t have any windows apart from on the door but there not all like that they have family rooms with big glass windows but are more expensive it’s not a big deal but I think reviews should be informative so people have choices when booking. The area is a bit quiet personally next time I’d stay in Kai bae where there are lots more restaurants and bars to choose from.
Great location and great facilities 😀 - the infinity pool, the location, the breakfast and the room 😞 - our room was next to the kitchen which meant we woke up at 5:30 am
Never again. 😀 - The Location on the street. That’s it. 😞 - Worst experience.. this hotel is old, pretty bad equipt and you feel like In a prison inside the room. The AC is bursting so much dust in the room as it is never be cleaned. You will get for sure sick of it. The bass from the Bar you will hear until 23:30h. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel.
Nice for a family. Very good pool area and great location. i wouldn’t recommend to travelers (especially women) who are 😀 - The pool was very nice + good price drinks at happy hour. The beds were comfortable and the location was great. 😞 - There were cockroaches in the bathroom. The staff were, as a whole, very nice however the male bar staff at Himmel bar were very pushy and made us uncomfortable in the night time. They held a work conference in the courtyard outside our room. This blocked our entrance and made for a very uncomfortable experience when walking to the pool in our swimsuits. As 3 girls this was not an ideal situation. my friend also received some bad news and was upset on our patio area, the male staff were staring and laughing with each other. very rude. The food isn’t terrible but way too pricy for the quality.
Good 😀 - Relaxed pool area, view to the ocean from the balcony, lots of shopping and food opportunities nearby, sand beach is amazing (and more spacious that at other places at that beach), room gets cleaned every day with fill up of water etc., Very friendly staff 😞 - The pool bar was really loud. But it's over at 11pm. I personally wasn't too bothered by it but I can totally understand why lots of people would be angry about this. The sort of Electro-Beat-pop music isn't everyone's taste as well. Also there seemed to be only one working electrical outlet in the room. The usual worn down things in those hotels.
Exceptional 😀 - Absolutely stunning place. Our balcony was 50m for the waters edge. Great for a morning dip. Extended our stay by a week 😞 - Nothing
