Perfect for a beach wedding”
We stayed here to have a beach wedding. The staff did a great job, it was a beautiful ceremony, and the location was perfect. My only small complaint with the resort is that selfish guests are allowed to "claim" unoccupied beach chairs for hours at a time by leaving a towel on them. I would suggest the resort do something to make it more fair for all guests who want to use the chairs by the beach and pool.
A perfect vacation place. Not crowded, has spacious rooms, a lovely pool, a good breakfast and a very helpful staff.
I loved this place, relaxing and peaceful, food was nice too. Only thing I would say is that it wasn't fully staffed or staff were not attentive. The pool was lovely but being under trees and next to the beach leaves and plants blew around and the pool wasn't cleared out. There was a children's small pool that was green and not used. It Looked stagnant. The pool bar wasn't staffed but the beach bar was with 2-3 staff. I just think they needed a manager to make sure everything was as expected. Be careful if you buy your own beers from the supermarket, we did and then when we checked out the lady boss tried to charge us. I told her we had only had 2 out of the minibar but she kept shaking her head. I think they count them in the bins. Other than that we had a fabulous time.
We took a long weekend break during the low season. The service and staff were fantastic and friendly. The overall look of the resort is beautiful, and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, it is quiet, peaceful and tranquil, but still close enough to shops, restaurants and bars if you feel the need to get out for something different. We will definitely return and we would wholeheartedly recommend this resort to anyone.
Barali Beach Resort seemed a mystery to most people we spoke to On Koh Chang. No one seemed to know where it was, but they should. Barali was excellent, with a great location on a nice beach. Our bungalow was adorable, with a unique and charming bathroom design. The beachfront offered many eating and drinking options, which was good. The pool was small, but has a Jacuzzi with soothing jets. Breakfast was satisfactory, but not the best we had on Koh Chang by a long shot. The resort is very quiet and the staff blends into the background for complete privacy. We really enjoyed it here and found few things to complain about. The wifi worked well and we thought the grounds had a lovely layout and design. The strangest part about Barali is the check-in area. It looks like it belongs at a 1 star hostel, rather than a four star resort of this caliber. The area is hotter than hot, stark and uninviting, which is not the case with the rest of the resort, for sure. We recommend it here.
Barali is perfection. I have never stayed anywhere better, as relaxing and inspiring, or felt so safe. The location is divine with only a few people enjoying the pretty palm tree beach and calm sea. The silky smooth fine white sand beach is postcard perfect encompassing the delightfully calm archipelago ambience. The entire Klong Prao bay is sheltered so has tiny waves with crystal clear water. The sea is warm and it's possible to walk out a long way before it becomes too deep to stand. On our first day two photo shoots were happening up the beach as we walked towards a gentle fascinating estuary with glow flies at dusk. The hotel is mosquito controlled. I think the resort was fully booked but it was silent and difficult to realise any one else was staying. Motorbikes are available and it is easy to explore waterfalls, amazing unique piers or 'trendy', slightly busier, beaches. I enjoyed seeing White-Bellied Sea-Eagles, fishing and Bhaminy Kite. The Barali breakfast house is five star architecturally. The food is brilliant and the polite and respectful staff are ten star! The pool is perfection too. Our large house was like stepping into a scene from tomb raider because the marble bath and shower are as big as an en-suite private swimming pool. It is not possible to describe in English words the sophistication of this resort. So just don't tell any one about this secret paradise. Nathan Craske
Excellent, good breakfast,helpful staff arranged motorbike, and direct transfer door to door to Bangkok hotel (900 baht pp inc ferry), beautiful pool, right on the beach yet quiet spot, only a short walk to several beach restaurants, one has fire show, hotel open air restaurant also on the beach and good quality not expensive for hotel of this quality very helpful service too. Here you can get good beef steaks,although not large, for 350 baht. Good quiet room,deluxe villa, but hard bed,nice bathroom.2 suites have private plunge pools..but not on offer on agoda,although not occupied during our stay..enquire direct? Extended our stay by an extra night was cheaper by agoda than thru lobby. Overall just what we wanted at competitive price. So, thanks Barali!
Reasonably priced hotel”
I’ve previously stay twice at the Centara Tropicana next door but that was a bit expensive for this trip as I was paying for an extra 2 family members. This was just a couple of days holiday as I live in Thailand. Obviously the Barali Beach resort isn’t as large but for the price I think it’s pretty good. If you’re not thinking of going out from the hotel then you might find a larger hotel better but if like us you intend exploring Koh Chang then it’s fine. There’s a very good pool and of course it’s right on the beach as well. You d need to be careful of the rocks though as it’s shallow a long way out and they can be very sharp. I found if you go to the left just past the inlet it’s not so bad. It’s a pity as apart from that it’s a wonderful beach. I’m not one for laying on beaches but just lying in the water which is very warm is great. The rooms which were premier deluxe were very good and large. Some people find the beds in many Thai very hard but as I’m used to it I find it OK. The food at breakfast was fine although not as much variety as a larger hotel of course. Certainly a hotel I would be happy to return to.
Perfect! Best Hotel around!”
After trying many hotels in Koh Chang we found the Barali...it is the Best around as not too big and not too small..the staff was very smiley and attentive..trying their very best to help the guest. We highly recommend it the rooms and Bathrooms are Gorgeous!! no need to mention also very clean...Russians Guests have not yet invaded that hotel (why staff are still smiling and nice!) we will definitely get back to that place!! Loved it-
Fantastic resort alongside the beach ”
It is a very nice hotel with private beach. The bungalows are very nice with king size beds and a beautiful bathroom. The swimming pool is vast with a great view over the sea. The beach is very nice too, facing the west for great sunset. I look forward to staying there again!
best villa style resort on Koh Chang”
- very nice grounds, beautiful gardens, clean and uncrowded beach. - staff very polite and always smiling, although lacking some good english. - food in the bar and restaurant is not pricey, good quality but small choice. - average breakfast. - nice SPA, but never tried it, so can't compare with others. prices start from BHT 800 etc. - hotel is completely silent at night which is very good for sleeping. you can get live music everynight in the neighbouring Tropicana Resort (where you can also have a nice buffet dinner). - good beach and pool, lots of umbrellas and sunbeds, but beware of rocks in the water. overall, one of the best hotels in Koh Chang.
Only thing that I need to mention is the shower wasn't very hot. Besides that everything is outstanding. I highly recommend!
A very enjoable experience”
The location is great with beach access and the best part is that the beach is not too busy or crowded. The room was very comfortable and the pool as well was great. Only 2 slight downsides, while the buffet breakfast was very good the restaurants meals for lunch and dinner were just average quality and high price, though not a big problem as there are many nice restaurants around the area. The other slight downside is the cleaning service, the quality was great but they seem to onlt have one lady to do all rooms, so your room may not get done till the afternoon.
Lovely Resort ”
Enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely and it had a great beach and pool. Lots of lounge chairs. Great breakfast and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We even tried the spa and it was nice as well.
Great stay in perfect location....except last day”
All was very good in Barali....location is perfect, room was perfect, beach not crowded at all, staff was nice although could improve English. We had great support from the manager (we believe its the manager), very available to help and attend our requests. Last day, when checking out, we were obliged to pay for one of the beach towels. We lost one of the towels, maybe in the swimming pool or on the resort beach....most probably taken by one of the workers of the resort. In such a resort you dont expect to pay for a beach towel....otherwise they should inform you in the beginning. Pragmatically if you loose you can be obliged to pay but I was really disappointed with this approach...this is not how you fidelize your clients.
Excellent location for beach holiday. Good value.”
Pros Location. Directly on the beach Value, food and drink reasonable for hotel prices. Staff. Good service Breakfast. Plentiful ,catering to all nationalities. Cons Air-con in room extremely noisy. Long walk to main road for anybody with walking difficulties.
Only peaceful resort left in Klong Phrao”
This hotel is next to Centara. It's super quiet and peaceful ambient , even it's fully booked. Very nice low-rise villas , no far from the beach (50 m). Staff also very helpful and friendly. Many beach restaurants can be reached by walking on the beach.
nice bungalows, nice location (the beach! - no problems with sandflies by the way), very good breakfast and nice staff. would stay there again, it's a good choice somewhere between basic bungalows and huge five star resorts which you all find at Klong Prao. Not far from the village, good options for dinner nearby.
Good service & location ”
Staff are very helpful Thank Ms Fali and Mr Win Room was specious, big bed. Tv screen (but very few english channels and reception problems), Mini fridge (they provide minibar items but I asked them out) kettle and coffee. The bathtub is sunken in as an aquarium glassed view to secluded garden, the only any terrible is you can not take a bath since water temperature keep changing from cold to hot and back, taking a shower is problem, ask the front desk but they had no answers Location on a beautiful beach and not far from restaurants and main street
Nice room with an amazing shower. We were close to the beach, but some of the bungalows a way back in the resort look a bit close together with a very close view of the one in front. Lovely infinity pool overlooking the beach. Air conditioning system was a bit noisy. Good breakfast, but the hotel restaurant seemed a bit dead at dinner, but we were in the low season.
