Koh Chang Island is Thailand’s third largest island, after Phuket and Samui, and it is located a few hours east of the capital city Bangkok. It is most known for its beaches, namely Kai Bae, Klong Prao, White Sand, and Lonely Beach. You can also do lots of other non-beach activities, like visit Mu Koh Chang Nature Park, hike up the mountain, visit the hidden waterfalls, and interact with some elephants. Getting around Koh Chang is done by cab, bus, or personal vehicles; the nearest airport is in Trat, on the mainland, 17 miles (28 km) north. You’ll need a place to stay here, so we’ve selected the 10 best Airbnb vacation rentals here in Koh Chang, Thailand. You can read more on these generous accommodations below.
Do you like being close to nature? This accommodation is as close as you can get. The bungalow here accommodates two and it is themed like a hut, but still has conveniences like lights, power, and Wi-Fi. The bathrooms are still modern, and they have heated showers. Outside, the resort feels more like a luxury reserve than a seaside resort. You can enjoy the scrumptious meals in the restaurant, both local and foreign. You can also sip some coffee during breakfast. The resort won’t make you feel completely isolated, even on an offshore island like Koh Chang.

This villa’s name translates to “open to the sea” because it does face the sea. You can open the entire living area wall to let in the sea breeze. The three bedrooms can accommodate six of you, and they are accessible to two baths. You get other indoor amenities like Wi-Fi access, air-conditioning, and even a projector TV with Internet service. The open kitchenette has a fridge and a small stove, so you can prepare some meals to eat in the outdoor dining table. The lawn, along with the rest of the villa, is kept in top shape by a dedicated housekeeper. You can also use the village’s amenities, like a golf course, bars, two swimming pools, and a gym. All of these top-class amenities more than justify the premium price of your stay here.
