The highlight is definately the afternoons watching the sun go down over the sea, with beautiful music playing, comfortable lounges set up on the hotels private beach, then moving through to dinner on the beach which the setting, comfort, service and food we're all excellant. Hotel staff we're some of the best, they get to know you and take an interest in you and your holiday and their English is very good. I have stayed at 100's of hotels and the Dewa rates in my top 10. The only thing I would change would be the bed and pillow were very firm, though this is fairly normal for Thailand, a nice pillow top would of made my sleep a touch more comfortable, some people would prefer a very firm mattress, impossible to please everyone understandably. With only being 59 rooms you don't get a crowded feeling, no line ups at breakfast or to use facilities, pool relatively not crowded. I give the Dewa a 9.5 out of 10..
Our third time to koh chang and 2nd time at Seaview. We had a tremendous welcome when we arrived for our second stay and the views are to die for. The beach is clean, safe and delightful to swim in, although not always clear enough for good snorkelling. There are islands to kayak to, swim with elephants on the beach (500 bahts), all day snorkelling trips to 4 islands with lunch inc for approx 700-850 bahts each, brilliant day out with excellent fish and coral viewing.
A great all round holiday.
TIP-Have a drink on the beach at sunset then walk along the beach to kai bae for dinner, shopping and more cocktails!
I stayed at the Bamboo Hideaway Resort and cannot rate it highly enough. Each individual bungalow is situated to give you privacy. They are kept spotlessly clean and are very spacious. The owners Francesca and Maximo are a delightful couple and make you feel extremely welcome, nothing is too much trouble.
There is also a reasonable price restaurant serving delicious Italian and a Thai food.
