                Great place to exlpore the island”

                The location is perfect when you want to explore both sides of the island. The beach on the resort itself has nice views but is not sandy. This is compensated more than enough: the place has kajaks which you can use for free so you can explore the coastline and kajak to nice small nearby beaches. The place is quite, so you get your rest but for the rest there is everything you need: car and motorbike renting, good restaurant, fantastic breakfast, jungle nearby, etc

                A wonderful New Year break.”

                From the initial greeting to our final farewell 4 days later we found only one irritation. Polite, efficient and friendly staff who spoke excellent English. A very welcoming owner and superb food from the inclusive breakfast to the extensive menu. Totally recommend their specialty Sea Bass and Mango salad. The resort is on the east side of the island and away from the more lively west cost although the west coast is easily accessible. Our minor irritation.... The boiled eggs could have done with another minutes cooking.

                A wonderful resort set in magnificent grounds and on the beachfront.”

                From the moment we arrived, we were taken care of most splendidly. The resort itself is in the middle of large lush surroundings. There is a lovely swimming pool right on the beach complete with jacuzzi. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the breakfast was unbeatable with a chnoice of just about anything we could wish for. The added bonus for us was that we could take our dog there and the locatio nof the bungalows right on the beach were perfect in that respect. Thoroughly recommended.

                A nice, well-priced, bungalow option, in a quiet beautiful setting. The minimal staff that were employed seem to enjoy the guests amongst their daily routines. Food was excellent and moderately priced. If you want quiet, this is the place. If you want street food, bars, shopping, then you should go to West side of island.

                lush gardens, Privacy, Thai chef

                Very tranquil hotel on the quieter side of the island. At times we felt as if we were the only guests there. We weren't. The villas are spaced quite well which offers good privacy. They are basic and clean. The only noise to be heard day or night is the local wildlife. Good wifi in rooms and restaurant. The Thai chef cooked dinner for us a couple of nights. Very fresh,tasty and made to order. The feel of this property for me was more of a guest house, with only a handful of staff, the service is quite personal. If you are looking for a place to escape everything (including people) this is it. If you want to party, go to the other side. Note: taxi service at night to this side may be difficult to obtain, you will have to pay for their return journey.

The rooms are immaculately clean as are the lovely swimming pool, the Hotel grounds and dining area.We had a great time using the free use of the kayaks;the Italian owners of the hotel are unique, thank you for a most comfortable stay.

                Location-Service and Staff

                The stay at "The Garden of Joy" was fantastic. Customer service and care from Valentino and his wife(sorry I have forgotten your name) was amazing. They were so friendly and helpful in everyway. The bungalows,set in peaceful and tranquil gardens were terrific, the serenity we both enjoyed. The beach was a rocky beach WHO CARES the swimming pool and spa over looking the ocean made up for that. I cannot tell you how highly I regard this place, service from the host's and staff AMAZING. This place was the highlight of Koh Chang. I had heard so much of the island, so we took the chance and went. The island was disappointing from the non performing waterfalls, to the 3metre wide sand beach strips on the touristy side of the island, surrounded with rubbish. Very poor. The monkeys on the side of the road however were entertaining, you could compare this sentence to the taxi service eagerly awaiting the next unsuspecting and naïve tourist at the main arrival port. "The Garden of Joy" was the saving grace of the island. Word of warning use the Centre Point Ferry port on the mainland as it lands you approximately 3 kms from the hotel, otherwise if you arrive at Koh Chang terminal it will cost you somewhat more, and be warned the taxis will tell you the fee is to the road NOT to the reception office at any of the hotels, that is an additional charge. Saw and heard them scam a group of Italian tourists.
