There's a good number of family-friendly resorts on this island
How family-friendly is the resort island of Koh Chang? Moderately so, is the best that could be said. After all, there is almost no place in Thailand where children are not welcomed and well taken care of. But when measuring children-dedicated facilities in the beachfront hotels on this rather distant island the ‘moderate’ description is fair. To compile this Top 10 list of good family resorts we had to drop the standards that we applied to both Phuket’s Top 10 family-friendly resorts and to Koh Samui’s Top 10 family resorts, where hotels simply had to have a kid’s club to be included.
Only about half of the ten resorts listed here boast a kid’s club, and we doubt that all of those are well staffed or always active, particularly in the off-season months when guest occupancy is very low. The number of families, particularly foreign families, coming to Koh Chang, is still relatively small. More Thai families from Bangkok drive down here in private cars once the foreigners become scarce from March onwards.
Travelling distance has kept Koh Chang low in the rankings of family-friendly beach destinations in Thailand. Five or six hours drive from Bangkok to the ferry port, followed by an hour on the water and another half hour or so driving down the island have long discouraged foreign tourists.
Despite the long trip, Koh Chang holds enough incentives to attract an increasing number of foreign families each year. One attraction is simply the sense of getting off the beaten tourist track, and the other is, of course, price. Many of Koh Chang’s room rates are more family-friendly than their counterparts in more famous, and more convenient beach destinations. Then, for some young families the kid’s club is simply not as important at the room rate.
