I’ve known Pingpong, the owner since I moved to Koh Chang.  Back then he worked as a tour guide and helped out at a small beach restaurant near our guesthouse.   He always wanted to have his own guesthouse and , a decade or so later he managed to achieve his dream.  

Twin room at Pingpong's House guesthouse, White Sand beach

Pingpong’s House is a large guesthouse built on a track that runs inland, adjacent to Kacha Resort, on White Sand beach.  His guesthouse is at the end of the track and from the upper floors guests have views of the nothing but jungle.  Macaques are common visitors to the garden which is full of varieties of orchids and other tropical plants.   

Rooms start at under 1,000 Baht/night and all have air-conditioning, fridge, wifi and cable TV.  They’re clean and comfortable and ideal as a base to explore the island.  Grab a scooter, pick Mr Pingpong’s brains for places to see and head off to explore. 

This type of accommodation obviously isn’t for everyone.  But if you like to learn about the place you are visiting and aren’t planning to spend all day lying on a sunbed, then it’s a good choice for budget conscious visitors. 

Guests often comment on Pingpong’s generosity and local knowledge.  So if you’re looking for a more personal, guesthouse experience, rather than just being another room number at a resort, it’s definitely recommended.  Note that the guesthouse is at the end of a track which passes workers’ housing and has a few street dogs around, so whilst it is safe, it’s a bit rough and ready.

Exceptional 😀 - Great host, very helpful and friendly, location good

Good stay 😀 - We enjoyed our 2 nights here. The room was very clean and modern with new furnishings, good bathroom, comfortable bed, fridge, kettle and a nice out door garden area to sit. The host was very welcoming and friendly. We would be happy to stay again.
😞 - We had a car so it wasn’t a problem. but if you don’t have a motorbike or car be prepared for a short walk from the main road. It’s a local area and there are a few dogs around.
The best! 😀 - Mr.Pingpong is incredibly welcoming and friendly, bringing you water and fruit snacks every morning. Happy to give you advice on the area, and always has a smile. Rooms are impeccably clean and well maintained, one of the best hotels in thailand. AC is quiet, beds are soft, and the rooms are rather spacious. No TV in my room, but I never end up watching it anyways so it was no issue for me.
😞 - The only downside to this location is that you dont have a view of the ocean.
The best stay in Koh Chang 😀 - Perfect stay!!! Very nice, clean and comfortable room, very nice location - in nature, monkeys, singing birds but only 7 minutes to walk to White sand beach, shops and restaurants. And Pinngpong is the best host in Thailand!!! Very nice and helpful man, every morning he went to buy fresh thai delicacies to taste, he told us a lot of interesting about the nature and historie of Koh Chang. And great snooker player - next time we will retaliate!!!😆😆
We spent there a beautiful week, we recommend 100%.
Thank you, Pingpong for everything😊
