Cheap bungalows on Koh Chang - The White Elephant Resort

I also wanted to test a budget place,Moreover, I am not particularly picky about the place and for the last few days at Koh Chang I generally wanted to just sit in the room and work at the computer. Let me remind you, before that I lived in the popular Kacha Resort Spa and Siam Bay Resort, on the links of my reviews.

So I rented a bungalow in The White ElephantResort. In fact, there are a lot of similar options on White Sand Beach (and I wanted to stop at this beach, everything was near), but considering that the end of December and all around raised prices, even simple housing costs 2 times more, than the middle or low season.

Price and reservation

At The White Elephant Resort

I paid 1500 baht / day, lived for several days. In high season, the price is just that. In low season, this same bungalow can be rented for 700 baht, in the middle season the cost is about 1000 baht. In general, the selected time for the holiday - taxis in the financial issue.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

For example, here is a direct link to the hotel: The White Elephant Resort

. You will find out through which booking system it will be cheaper to make, their prices differ. In addition, at the time of my arrival, not all systems knew this hotel.

Interior

New all, they have recently opened. The rooms are quite simple, a small room and a bathroom. There is hot water, TV, fridge, kettle, safe, small closet and table. In principle, everything is fine, only the mattress is hard. By the way, one of the advantages is a quiet and new air conditioner, which can be configured so that it will barely blow.

Wifi is fast, but depends on where you are. For example, on the porch I had 40 megabits in both directions, which is a lot for Ty. But inside the bungalow, in the corner farthest from the veranda, everything was already falling to 1 megabit.

Territory

The area of ​​the complex (to call it a language notturns) quite small. In fact, a few houses around the pool and all. The pool is also small and shallow, especially not swim. Rather, it is necessary in order to cool off in the heat. Apparently therefore constantly empty.

The hotel is near the main road, butfenced off by the house, it can be seen in the photo. However, just opposite the territory of the resort there is a passage from the Orogi, therefore, a noise is heard. But when you are inside a bungalow, in principle, it is normal, I personally did not bother. Nearby there is a bar with music, but at exactly 12 it is turned off. In principle, it’s noisy on White Sanda, so here or away you can get somewhere to live or go to another beach.

To the cupable part of the White Sand Beach, go just10 minutes walk along the road. Nearby there is a Makro supermarket, a 7-eleven mini-market and Tesco, a good coffee shop. In general, everything is close, the entire infrastructure of the area.
