Sleeping at Little Koh Chang Noi

Accommodations on Little Koh Chang may be as quaint as the island itself. While the island is small, you won’t find a shortage of places to stay. Forget hotel rooms; instead, picture bungalows scattered along the expansive Ao Yai beach. The majority of resorts, conveniently situated along the main stretch of Ao Yai, also boast restaurants serving a diverse array of dishes.

Travel Tips and Insights: Our Take on Little Koh Chang

We discovered our preferred spot on the island, a serene beach on the opposite side that unfolds into a mesmerizing setting for sunsets. Nestled here are three hotels, each offering bungalows with an atmosphere some might label as ‘hippy,’ yet we found it to be much friendlier and laid-back. While the bungalows may be somewhat spartan, lacking the charm of those on the Ao Yai side, this is where we savored our most delightful meals. Notably, the tomato soups, tom-yang, and the renowned, unnamed dishes at Mama’s Bungalows were a highlight.

A Small Island with Limited Infrastructure

On this island, aside from bungalows and tents, amenities are scarce. No 7-Eleven or ATM, just a small grocery shop providing the basics. Smart travelers should ensure they have enough cash for their stay, although credit card payments might be an option, it’s best to confirm beforehand.

Due to the island’s unspoiled nature from mass tourism, hotels are meticulous and charge for everything, from hot water to sugar.

For those planning a visit, it’s wise to stock up on snacks, beverages (consider tea bags or instant coffee, for instance), and any other essential food items.

Extra charges can add up, taking a toll after a few days. Additionally, exercise caution upon arrival on the island as there is no formal landing stage. Prepare to get a little wet when disembarking from the boat
