I booked 1 night & stayed 6, this resort is a place to come to escape & relax. The clean rooms & friendly staff make you feel welcome. They will introduce you to other people staying there so there is a great family atmosphere. Will deff come back to stay here again.

I would recommend this place for solo travelers/groups of backpackers. The ambiance is definitely geared for relaxing by the pool or hanging out in the open-aired bar.

Great place for a quiet weekend”
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.

Amazing little spot on Koh Chang. A little away from the cities, But close to everything on a scooter. Cheap bungalows, with good beds, comfy surroundings, lovely garden, good food, clean pool and super super service from the staff. Really good value for money ;-)

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 ;)

Nice backpacker resort”
Good pool & grounds, friendly staff
great place to stay for young backpackers. the rooms are decent. music at the bar until ~12 most nights, but the resort is spread out so it's not too noisy if you want to escape the bar atmosphere. all staff are very friendly/trustworthy and there is a community feel to the place. would recommend for young and wild travelers.

Very very nice resort. Perfect for families with small children and small budget.”
The owners and the staff are all very very kind&helpful& also very open&warm. We felt very welcomed. The resort is beautiful, very nice view, everything is clean and its a very quiet and chill place, perfect if u travel with children and a small budget. The bungalows are small but you have everything you need in it. The only negative thing is, there is no sand beach, there is only a stone beach. But you can swim in the pool or go to the sandbeaches nearby. Either you walk or you take a public Taxi at the street. Depending on which beach you go, you pay between 50-100 bath per person and ride, which is not too expensive. The breakfast At the resort is very nice, you can have everything for breakfast what you want and its not too expensive. Lunch/dinner I would go and have outside, because its much cheaper and better taste. But I once had dinner in the resort while watching the sunset. Its more expensive but not a rip off. There are books to read, billiard table and a volley

Nice pool but overall disappointing ”
The food at Elephant Bay Resort was not good. My first morning it took over 45 minutes for an omelet and then when it came, it had onions when I asked for no onions. So she made it again and when she brought it to me she threw it on the table and walked away. I tried to call her back because I saw it had onions again but she ignored me and when the man behind the bar tried to call her back, she ignored him and kept walking. I've been living in Southeast Asia for 6 years now and I've never seen hotel staff acting in such as way. The man behind the bar was extremely kind and I'm sorry he has to work with such a miserable cook. The pool is nice so that's a plus but there is no beach at the resort, just rocks. The shower pressure in our room (#3) was pretty much non-existent and the WiFi didn't work in our room. Overall, it was in a fine location but I would not choose to stay here again.

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.

Beautiful view, relaxed atmosphere.”
The view of the islands and ocean from the pool, eating and socialising area were gorgeous. The staff were helpful, approachable and friendly. The room was clean and cool. The greenery was better to lye on with a towel than a sunchair. There were multiple hammocks to rest yourself in the sunshine. The sunsetting view each night was majestic and the grounds were looked after.

The best of the best during our stay in Thailand ”
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;)

Wonderful, amazing want to go back for longer. My girlfriend and I spent 16 nights there and it was awesome. Its quiet, relaxed but also close enough to Lonely Beach for a party, should that be your thing. The room we stayed in was basic and as we were there for a decent period of time, an extra bit of storage would have been great, but that is such a minor point against a list of good points as long as your arm. The staff are wonderful, very helpful, full of knowledge and will assist in as much as they can to make your stay as good as possible. The food there is good. All in all a really enjoyable experience and we've already recommended it to friends who are going to be there next year!!

Great location for travellers”
Location, staff, atmosphere
I was here with three friends - kind of tourists/travellers. And we all loved it. I think the merely decent average score is harsh, probably based on people expecting it to be more of a hotel. It's not awful on this basis, but we came thinking of it as a hostel (though with individual rooms) and us four all loved it - probably the best hostel I've been at! It's got a sea view (beach isn't great but how many hostels have their own beach?!), a really cool bar area with table football, pool, games, food and drink and really helpful staff. Some hostel owners treat it just as a business, which is fine, but the owners here really do it for the love of the place and showing it to others.

I stayed at Gu's bay for 4 nights. The hostel was awesome, with friendly staff and a really nice pool. The fan room was good enough for me but it was quite hot in the afternoon. The pool was nice and perfect view over the sea. The hostel was awesome, the island of Ko Chang is incredible and there have so many beaches to see. i will come back again :)

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.
