planning on spending some time on koh chang in april. stayed at a couple of places in previous years...cliff beach resort (which seems to have doubled their prices and attract tons of russians now) and then some other place...i forget the name.
anyone with recent experience? i last went in '08 so im sure things have changed a good bit, new places, etc.
- off-the beaten-path;
- great sea view;
- non-corporate feel (so no chains, etc.);
- dont wanna spend more than 3500/night;
Always liked Lonely Beach way.
Welcome to the inner workings of my mind...
3500 a night? WTF?
Off the beaten path. Theres a great place south of Bang Bao, right on a nice beach. Isolated and definitely off the beaten path. I forget the name but you can find it on Ian's web page which I don't have with me either. Look up the big Koh Chang page and you can find it there.

I don't wanna brag, but I spent 14,500 for one night at V Villas in Hua Hin.
look at iamkohchang.com.
it's an exceptional website offering both advice & info on KC accom.
and an insightful chronicle of the impact of development on the island from a human
perspective. really great all around.
who'd have thought the original founder of ajarn would have something
even better on the internets?
original founder...that's redundant isn't it
