Beach's high-season rates seem expensive for essentially
the same kind of room you can get just a few doors down for
half the price. Still, there's very friendly Thai manager
and the restaurant can be excellent -- if the chef is having
a good day, or indeed has even turned up. Rooms are basic,
but subtly decorated, and some have large deckchairs on their
balconies with commanding views of the ocean. Of the handful
of places along here it probably offers the best option; the
huts are arguably the nicest (though there's not much in it),
and the views certainly are great.
you're up for high class bungalows, this might not be the
place for you. Although they have bungalows in different shapes,
styles and classes, I only tried out their cheapest option
myself, and can only speak for that.
you get to the end of White Sand beach, you're at Star Beach.
The reception is outdoors, just covered by a roof. The cheaper
options are bungalows reminding a bit of tree-huts, where
you have to climb wooden stairs up the hillside to get there.
The bungalows are not in any way extraordinary, and no matter
how well they are cleaned, there will always be sand inside...
a bathroom with cold shower and one of those toilets where
you have to use a bucket of water to flush. If you're not
to picky, this works very well!
bungalow was quite high up, so we had a fantastic view over
the sea. A little drawback was that climbing the stairs in
the middle of the night, after a very fin party, might not
be totally safe. But no injuries here :)
are a few chickens walking around, so watch out for chicken
leftovers in the stairs, it could get slippery.
location is perfect, you're at the beach, but a little bit
away from all the party places, so you could get a good nights
sleep if you'd like. Still there's a walking distance to everything.
at the beach there's a really nice restaurant with cheap,
Star Beach bungalows might not be the clanest, most comfortable,
but you get privacy if you want, superb location and very
friendly staff! The atmosphere is perfect! This is probably
one of the cheapest places left on White Sand, where the prices
are getting less and less friendly.
the high-class traveller, Koh Chang has better places to offer,
but you'll have to pay for it.
double rooms with private bathroom and fan from 300 Bath low
season, this is a good option for the budget backpacker.
