Great place”

I booked this place based on the reviews and because I had been disappointed with some expensive accommodation which had been oversold. You get exactly what is described at Elephant Bay. Small, clean rooms, basic but perfectly adequate. Hot water on demand, great pool, nice friendly bar and chill out area and reasonable food and drink prices. Very peaceful except the day one couple decided to play their music loudly at the pool -I'm ashamed to say English. I would be really happy to go back here.

Gu bay happy resort”

Staff staff staff

We extend our stay for whole week more since we simply fall in love with this place and wonderful manager Sylvia and Boy. This place has love is the air vibe, and if you are able to feel it you will never want to leave. We had a feeling that we have been friends with them for ages, even though we just met them staying at their place.They are not greedy and they will never take advantage of you (like in other places). They will try to help every way they can what ever you ask for.We really love them. Close to Gu Bay resort is Mercury hotel with lovely swimming pool that you can use if you get a drink (or not :)), and beautiful secluded beach with small italian restaurant where you can rest in hammock. For all the rest you need to have scooter which we rent for less than 5 eur a day. So it was very convenient for us.I would recommend this place to everybody with free spirit. Maybe is the best for solo travelers - not for families with kids (unless in hippi mood).

The location is a bit hidden but convenient for lots of activities that you can imagine in this island, Including nice restaurant, nice sandy beach bar, party lounge with nice cocktail, and even more!

Evelyn and all the staffs are so friendly and the location is probably the best in the neighborhood !though we don't drive motorbike, we can still enjoy lots of activities nearby, and the best of the best is, we love the lifestyle, designs, and facilities at elephant bay a lot! We'll definitely recommend you to stay here;)

quiet hotel on a beautiful island”

Quiet, next to the ocean, friendly atmosphere

You can't beat this hotel for value and atmosphere. Gu's Bay is in Bailan Bay, which is just a short taxi ride or hilly walk away from the noisier and more exciting Lonely Beach. You can go enjoy the shopping and bars in Lonely Beach, then easily come back to the tranquility of Gu's Bay. The hotel is next to the ocean, and while the shores are a bit rocky there, it's still nice for swimming. The restaurant/bar serves good western and Thai choices all day. The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed, and low-key. Rooms are VERY basic, but comfortable. There is wifi in the bar area but not in the rooms. The beds all have mosquito nets.

Best place in Koh Chang - Amazing vibe! ”

Location, pool, ocean, staff, awesome bar and food

Where to start?? Gu's Bay is the perfect backpacker spot for the Lonely Beach area! It is about a 20 minute walk to the famous beach however the water in Gu's although a little rocky at the start is perfect for swimming. There is also great grass areas to catch some sun! The swimming pool is fantastic if the ocean isn't your thing. The food from the bar area is cheap and amazing. The bar area is also a great vibe - Sunny (the manager) is a great bloke who is always there to help and he always gets the drinking games going which is great to get chatting and meet other travelers. The rooms are fine, basic but you get what the pay, there is so much going on you literally use the bed for sleep and thats it! Cannot wait to go back!

Views, pool, location

If you want to relax at an affordable price then look no further. This place has fantastic views and is located in a lovely bay not far from Lonely Beach. It has a nice bar and games area, the bungalows are basic but very comfortable. The resort could do with a few more loungers around the pool but that would be my only criticism. I would definitely stay there again.

Swimming pool, hammocks, shady spots

gu's bay describes itself as a backpackers retreat and this sums it up well. it is definitely more suited to people who are travelling rather than people on a short holiday. the garden is very peaceful, and the swimming pool clean, but it does tend to attract a younger crowd of guests who like to frequent the bar in the evenings. if you are looking for a fun and relaxed place where you will meet new people, gu's bay is perfect. cheap and cheerful.

Quiet, clean, large rooms.

Came for 2 days & stayed for 9! No sandy beach, just rocks but good for swimming in shallow bay. Nice grounds. Pool but never used it, just swam in the sea everyday. Food okay, a few food stalls & restaurants on the main drag but no bank or ATM, you have to walk 20 minutes to Lonely Beach for these items. Great snorkel trip with Satta boats from Bang Boa Bay, best value for money in Thailand. Funny owner & manager friendly.

Budget hotel for Art and pure relaxation.”

Sea view Layout, bar with friendly staff and swimming pool

It was a pleasure time. I am Thai who like budget traveling. In Koh Chang, many sea view in popular beaches are owned by the 5 stars hotels but this hotel can also make the view and layout very attractive and money worth. It's a very incredible place for sunset, with coconut trees, sea, hammock and swimming pool in just one glance. I think they can even use the space they have for more rooms, but they did not. They give that attractive space back to visitors to enjoy the view, swimming pool and hammocks. Even a standard fan room has a seaview right in front of the door ;)

Simple, inexpensive, good location and helpful staff. The Dutch owner's wife made me a take away breakfast most mornings as I had to leave early (0745) for diving. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was one village down the coast from the noisy drinking party village of Lonely Bay - so it was peaceful. The room were clean and simply fitted out. There was a mossie net around the bed which had a really firm mattress. Pool and gardens were clean. Sunsets were lovely. Food was good and inexpensive.

Good value accommodation

Great atmosphere at Gu's bay, exactly what is required for a resort who are looking to attract young people. The quality of the rooms was good, decent size and decent en-suite. Draw backs were the broken window which meant mosquitoes were able to enter the room at night, an issue which was not resolved by the end of our 5 night stay despite being reported on check-in. Also, the protocol to only clean the room once every three days upon request is not in keeping with competitor resorts and even when requested, the room was not cleaned and towels not replaced util reminded. There were some issues with ordering food such as getting our orders wrong on a couple of occasions. Overall I would recommend the resort as one in a good location (close to Lonely Beach)which provides comfortable accommodation in a relaxed atmosphere.

Koh Chang”

Very cheap with pool and ocean views

Actually our stay at Gu's Bay was nice. For once I opted to try the cheaper rooms at about 900 Baht rather than the 4500 Baht per night hotels that I usually book, and to be honest it was perfectly acceptable for $26 per night. Admittedly it is more for the younger crowd, but it had a swimming pool and sala overlooking the ocean and was in a great location in Bailan. I would stay there again but my partner did not like the men running the place as she thinks that women do a better job. The resort is within walking distance of some small eateries in Bailan and the bigger Tarzan Island night spot and restaurant and is just around the corner from the Mercure hotel where you will pay a lot more. With the swimming pool, ocean views and proximity to Lonely Beach I would go as far as to say that your really can't go wrong for $26 per night. I would stay there again, my partner would not and prefers the huts at Tarzan Island.

Long Weekend from Bangkok”

Relaxed Friendly Inexpensive

We had a great time at Gu's. Friendly and welcoming staff, and decent food. The beach is located a way from the pier onto the island, but we weren't keen to be surrounded by tourists anyway. Hiring a motorbike would be advised, but that's a general comment on Koh Chang anyway, unless you want to stay in one of the tackier resorts close to the ferry. A very friendly dog was in attendance. The beach is rocky, but the quality of the poolside area more than made up for that in my eyes.
