Koh Chang has a growing reputation as an island resort which welcomes travellers searching for female company, mainly due to the hordes of weekending Bangkokians which flock here to escape the bedlam of the big smoke. And there are plenty of bachelor hotels in Koh Chang which don’t charge for extra guests, both small resorts with basic bungalows and larger offerings with modern facilities including swimming pools and restaurants.
Anything less than US$20 (600 baht) is likely to be the realm of the backpacker, and perhaps lack the creature comforts for entertaining a lady and making her feel at home. But there are plenty of mid-priced bachelor hotels in Koh Chang at around the US$30 baht mark which are clean, spacious, boast TVs and minibars but still do not cost the earth.
While most hotels may not approve of bringing back unregistered guests late at night, if you are discreet there should not be a problem at all. Most establishments simply ask that you present the girls ID card at reception for security, and this will be returned when she leaves.
Of course, room prices rise significantly at the weekend but all the best prices can be found via our online partner Agoda. And we saved you the embarrassment of asking yourself by calling around all these Koh Chang bachelor hotels to check that there are no hidden charges if you bring back a companion.
Note! Prices reflect low season rates. Those who book between May and October could score discounts of up to 40 per cent. US$1 is roughly 35 baht.
