More on Ko Chang Noi

Sawasdee is one of the island’s few places to stay that actually has a website and business cards along with attractive bungalows spread over neatly raked grounds.

Travelfish says:

A helpful Thai couple offers a range of clean wood-and-concrete bungalows with hammocks strung to large porches facing the beach. We checked out a smart medium-size edition made of dark-wood walls with a nifty panel that can be slid open to let in the breeze or shut to keep out the rain. These also bag you stained glass on the doors, several windows, thick mattresses on raised wood platforms and clean concrete bathrooms painted blue or crimson with bucket-flush toilets.

Smaller bungalows set further back are cheaper, while the largest bungalows are some of the better family options on the island—just be aware that children aged less than seven are not allowed to stay here.

The resort has a more sophisticated ambiance than most of Chang Noi’s bungalow joints, with several loungers placed beneath abundant umbrella trees or atop a break wall that ensures you can relax on the sand at high tide.

The kitchen serves above-average Thai food to regular tables and floor cushions set up on a loft. While we liked Sawasdee the best, neighbouring Fullmoon and German-run Ta Dang both also have bungalows that are a little more upscale than most on the island.
