Lovely location, shame the sea was so stoney. Grat pool. We changed from the front bungalow to a room in the block at the back. Much nicer. Breakfast ok, staff great. Near to village of Lonley Beach which has loads of restaurants, best of which by far was the Magic Garden. We enjoyed our stay
Love this place”
We stayed here 6years ago when my daughter was just 2 years old. We came back after staying Kae Bai which was too busy for my liking. Great pool, very friendly and helpful staff, food good, beach is okay, gardens beautifully peaceful. The only downside the internet is a bit sporadic (but it was great to get away form the phone and ipads) and the noise of the duff duff duff travelling faintly over from Lonely Beach for some of the huts at the front at night. Other than that idyllic. Thank you Bailan Beach.
I hope you like a very hard bed”
The place was very nice, just by the beach. It was pretty difficult to communicate with the staff but they were very smiley. We had problems with the bed, it was so hard that it was like sleeping on the floor, the safety box was not working well and there was not hot water. However, they fixed everything. Breakfast wasn't great but was sufficient for a 3 star hotel.
Cheaper option, as you'd expect for the price but a little bit of a quiet spots”
Clean and nice size room (hard beds though for anyone that dislikes - fine for me). Breakfast wasn't great. Cold, minimal selection. There is a great place nearby (5 mins away) called Art Garden. Run by a German couple. Small section of beach at hotel. You can rent Kayak from hotel. We tended to go to the other main beaches. For brave souls can also hire moto. The hills and farangs with bandages put me off. Closest beach is Lonely Beach area. Around 50 baht pp in taxi. 10 mins away. Few bars and restaurants (recommend magic garden). Small spot. Further up is Kai Bay. 80 baht per person in taxi. Busier spot. More going on. Furthest distance to nicest beach at white Sand. 100 baht per person. Around 30 min drive in taxi. Lots of resorts. But actually beach isn't too overwhelmingly busy. Nice Thai places they'll make it real Thai if you ask. Not too expensive. Lovely place to chill. You are located close to Bang Bao Pier for any boat trips and not far from the Waterfalls. Overall..nice!
Quiet place with small private beach ”
The best thing is, that some of the bungalows do not have a WIFI signal which helps to have a good sleep and recreation. In the restaurant, pool and reception area the WIFI is good. Nice and quiet location in the nature of Koh Chang. Good breakfast and clean rooms. Not the best for beach activities but a small pool.
Only main negative I have is the Beach front. Not so nice and rocky, but they do have a swimming pool and Lonely beach is nearby. Location is away from most restaurants and other commercial stores. Manager is very helpful and can assist and organize tours for you. Overall place is excellent. Great value for money.
Bailan Beach Resort”
I went to Koh Chang primarily for diving and this resort was very convenient to get to and from the dive shop located in Bang Bao Bay. The grounds were very nice and the view of the sunset was quite good (when no cloud cover). All said, the resort was good value for the money and I would stay here again.
Nice hotel for people who rather relax at the pool”
The hotel is really got value for money. There are a lot of restaurants right in front of the hotel and the atmosphere is charming and comforting. You have to walk a little bit to reach the beach.. we did not mind, because we loved the pool and chilled there the whole day and just went to the beach to drink beer. Staff is really friendly as well. We really don't like beach huts, where all the animals and insects can crawl inside. Therefore this hotel was really great for us
a really lovely hotel”
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The gardens are beautiful and there is a sea view, which has amazing sunsets over. Pool is small but looks over the sea. Room was a good size with balcony and was very clean. Hotel is away from any nightlife and the taxi's stop picking up after 22:00 from the hotel, so a bike is advisable and can be hired at the desk at a good rate. The area is beautiful with monkeys in the near by trees. Fantastic stay and I will return.
We had a great time. It sits on a nice beach with beautiful sunsets. The free kayaks were a plus. You can access the neighboring beaches with the kayaks if you're up for some exercise. The highlight of our trip was paddling to one of the islands where there is a great beach for swimming, which is easy enough if the sea is calm and there isn't much wind. I wouldn't advise it unless conditions are right. The food, particularly their Thai dishes were fantastic and reasonably priced for a resort setting. Breakfast was not nearly as good as when ordering from the menu, but was plentiful and "free".
Lovely place for a sunset”
If you're looking for a place to simply relax for a while, this is a great spot. Getting around requires a motorbike and the road is a bit treacherous, but if you want to stay put for a while, this is a great place to do it. The breakfast is average, but the food off of the menu is excellent. I've stayed in Thailand for 2 years now and I thought their Thai dishes were fantastic and very reasonably priced. The swimming is good at the beach, but if you're looking for a stretch of good sand, you'll have to head to one of the neighboring beaches.
Value for money”
i stayed two days at koh chang bailan beach resort and had a good time. the sea-view bungalow was quite big and most importantly clean. the resort is nicely set up with a beautiful garden. the staff is friendly and service minded, something that is often lacked at other hotels. it is recommended to have your own transportation (car or rented motorbike) to explore koh chang's beautiful beaches.
Nice Place, friendly People”
The Bailan Beach Resort has very friendly Staff. The Bungalows are spacious and quiet. They have nice hammocks for relax in the evening. Swimming in the Sea is difficult because of the stones. The breakfast is ok, the food you can order for lunch or dinner is much better but still very reasonable priced.
Great resort for a relaxing holiday”
Usually I'm quite critical in writing reviews, but actually there is not any subject this time to criticize. The resort is very nice, well taken care of. There are not too many bungalows, so it's never too busy. Most of the bungalows don't have sea-view, but the garden around the swimming pool is very nice and restfull, as long as it's not too busy at the swimming pool. The staff was very polite, kind and helpfull. The breakfast is well taken care of, and there is a choice out of 8 different kind of breakfast, western and Thai. The food they serve for dinner is very good, and certainly not too expensive. There is some kind of 'boulevard' at the sea, and also a small sand beach. Swimming in the sea however is not possible because of the rocks. The resorts rents motorbikes for a very reasonable price, so it's easy to go to other beautiful beaches close by if you want to swim. If you don't want to swim in the sea, and you're looking for a relaxing holiday, the you can go there, don't need to leave the resort at all. Although of course then you'll not see the rest of the beautifull island
i really enjoyed my stay and would stay again. found no problem with the 10 minute walk over to lonely beach, and it was easy enough to flag taxis up and down the coast. there were many children during the first half of my stay, who kind of dominated the pool, so i stayed away, but the pool itself is quite nice when i could get to it. as stated, no real beach, but it is still a lovely spot. i had a garden view, worked for me. very family-friendly place. for solo male travelers, i will note, as i had a guest (the same guest) a few nights, that they are "guest-friendly", but i would also note that i kept it extremely discreet. it was very unclear if they have a policy, they entire staff clearly all knew, but i was greeted by a kind of bemused, and respectfully distant reaction. may very well be case by case, ymmv.
great location ! beautiful place”
went with my friend ( another male ) idealy for couples romance etc so tranquil there beautiful settings we had bungalow on the sea front but with only a double bed and the resort was completely full but fair play they made up a bed with a matress and moved furniture around to accomodate it was ok the new years buffet was very good food.
Went in wet season (very very wet, would have been useful to know that swimming pool was being built, will be ready by November. There were kayaks available which were free. We will stay there again as the rooms with a large family represented good value for money and the food was excellent. I also felt the staff were excellent in the way they dealt with their guests. I would recommend it, for couples who want a quiet time or families who are happy to be away from it all.
Nice resort but with no ocean swimming”
Nice resort but no ocean swimming. Nice bungalows, but bathrooms are small and need refurbishing. Nice pool. Breakfast buffet is adequate. Restaurant is quite good. Expect to drive to get to a nice beach for swimming.
This place perfect for relex.”
They had very nice view. You can lay down and get relex all day from the seaside. But the location very private from out side. The shopping place a little bit far and the street up and down on the hill, may be hard for driving at night time. If you want to get relex I recommend this place.
Great facilities but worn down room”
The place itself was great; secluded, spacious with a lovely pool right in front of the beach (not really swimmable), pool table and cute island cat. However, the room was pretty old and I’m not sure why my room was always kind of humid and smelling weird. Breakfast was very simple but okay. Overall, I enjoyed my stay but not sure if I will go back.
