Breezy bungalows, great service
Long Beach, Ko Chang Noi T: (081) 370 1434
Occupying the rocky shore of Crocodile Point at Long Beach's southern end, Crocodile Rock is our top choice on Ko Chang Noi for its unique location, tasteful bungalows, excellent food and friendly, sincere owners and staff.
At low tide getting here is a simple matter of walking up some stairs amongst the rocks of Crocodile Point, but at high tide it requires traversing a path that begins a little further down the beach (look for the sign). The resort features the island's best restaurant area, which is perched on a wood deck far above the rocks and sea below and has a few carefully placed tables and platforms with traditional pillows. The bungalows are set behind the restaurant on a wooded hillside that, despite being a short walk to the beach is the breeziest and most comfortable location of any of Ko Chang Noi's resorts. Some of the thatched bamboo bungalows are set a good distance back in the woods, and all are spacious with big front porches, hammocks, and tasteful décor such as quiet wind chimes and tropical plants. The only downfall is that while electricity runs in the restaurant during the evening the bungalows do not have lights or outlets, but this could be a bonus for those looking to get back to nature, and electronics may be charged in the restaurant area. Crocodile Rock is often booked up with return customers, so it's a good idea to call or email in advance.
