These are great, basic but clean bungalows on Koh Chang, good value for money. A nice motorbike ride away from the major beaches, a great small family runnoodle shop (right of Tesco when you go down the drive way) and an awesome host with lovely dogs. We stayed 8 nights at this nice place and would definitely recommend it to...

After reading the countless reviews on here we booked the last available bungalow just a day before arrival. We couldn't have been happier. John and his wife made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable. He had great advice and knows the island like the back of his hand. Great location, everything reachable in minutes by moped Highly recommended

We stayed here for eleven nights and enjoyed every minute. On arrival we were met by John and later Lan, we were offered a cold drink and shown to our bungalow which was clean and comfortable (everything you need) I instantly felt at home and relaxed. John loves his animals and one will certainly adopt you on your visit which...

Stayed in elephant and castle for a few days, and they have been brilliant. Such a warm welcome by the owners and especially the dogs! The bungalow are perfect size and has every that you need, sitting on the balcony you can see the sunset in the distance. Town is just a 5 minute taxi ride only costing 50 Bart!...

This was for the first time we selected a beach destination to have our anniversary celebration and we were very skeptical how this place will be but trust us we had a great time at John's. The bungalow's are cozy and evenly placed from each other just to maintain your privacy. The location is place tucked on the woods just...

We had a fantastic time at John's bungalows! Location is convenient right opposite to Tesco and ATMs, 5 min or less by motorbike to two of the nearest beaches. Rooms are clean and equipped with everything you need and nothing you don't + a spacious terrace overlooking the yard on to the sea. Our recommendation: Rent a motorbike and go...

We recently returned from Ko chang at the end of February. Having booked the elephant & castle for 42 nights. Our stay was even better than we had imagined. The bungalows were set in gardens on the edge of the jungle, it was very private & peaceful. Yet we were only a 5 minute scooter or taxi ride from White...

We were there for 5 nights. It was good value for money. The bungalow was big enough for a big size bed, wardrobe and refrigerator; also it was clean and simple. We didn't need more. The owners are friendly and always funny to have interesting conversations with them. They gave us useful recommendations for traveling etc. I wish it would...

The bungalows are nice, quite roomy but very basic in all ways. The setting close to the jungle is nice. The owner is very nice and makes you feel like home. However, there are two main problems why I wouldn't go here again: first there's nothing except the Tesco supermarket at walking distance from the place. Ok, the Tesco is...

Naturally I`m a little disappointed in your comments as we like all our guest to be happy here. I would like to reply to some of them. You say the rooms are "basic in all ways". So do we. But they do have all the facilities most guests require - a king size bed, Air Con, free Wi Fi, TV,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on a peaceful hillside, in beautiful gardens and backing onto the National Park of Koh Chang, which is virgin jungle. Bungalows have sea views, King size double bed, free Wi Fi, TV, shower/toilet/wet room, large wardrobe, fridge, tea/coffee making facility. 5 bungalows have Air con, 1 is fan only. The bungalows are kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast is available (extra charge). Situated just outside the busy main resort of White Sands & opposite Tesco Lotus which is handy for shopping but we are out of site. By taxi or motorbike we are with minutes of beaches, waterfalls, shops & restaurants. We can arrange other trips for you like elephant trekking, scuba diving, jungle trekking, Thai cookery or boat trips. The vibe on Koh Chang & at Elephant & Castle is one of relaxation. We can give you that as well as the personal touch. ... more   less

“I liked the higher bungalow but this may be simply because this was the one we had and I loved the view looking down "The Slope". However some of the others were sunnier in the late afternoon but really don't think you could go wrong with any.”
