Fantastic resort”

Best authentic resort In Thailand”

A gem!! It’s exactly the exotic vacations that we were looking for. It’s beautiful!! The reception guys are unique and kind. Absolutely loved the treat. Due to pandemic low demand the restaurant area was understaffed and less competent. That was the only downside. Nevertheless along Bangbao beach there are other great places to eat. Specially Indi Beach that is amazing!!!!!!

The best hotel staff I’ve ever met”

Staff hospitality was outstanding. We forgot on our first night there about the last time to have dinner; however, they went ahead and reopened their restaurant just for us. Due to the pandemic I couldn’t celebrate my daughter’s birthday with friends and family here in Thailand but the staff went above and beyond and arranged my daughter birthday in the hotel and also celebrated it with us. I’d recommend it to anyone at any time. We stayed there for 2 nights and already have already done this much. Looking forward to be there again soon!

Lovely hotel”

Really nice hotel situated on a gorgeous beach. The staff are lovely and helpful. The hotel is in a rather remote part of the island, which is definitely part of the appeal. However, it could potentially be difficult to get around the island from here, if you don't have your own car. The beach and surroundings really are beautiful. The surrounding area is so quiet too. If you're looking for lots of bars and clubs, this isn't for you, but if you want to hear nothing but waves, birds and insects this is the perfect resort. Breakfast is a little lacklustre, but still more than adequate. We loved our time here.

We had the hotel all to ourselves due to low season and covid. Location is a far drive to mostly secluded beach. Due to covid the bar and restaraunt were not open, but staff can order food from outside for you. Room was spectacular. Not much staff, but staff was very helpful. During high season when there is no covid I'm sure this place is absolutly amazing.

This place has a gorgeous beach and pool to enjoy. Our room was mildew smelly and kind of dark. There was garbage in the flower beds and garden area just outside our door. The hotel staff did not speak English well and this led to some confusion about extra costs. I recommend you ask further about what is included and not in your stay.

Excellent”

If you are looking for a quite, relaxing and top quality resort in Ko Chang, then this is definitely the place. Built by the beach and between high and dense trees, Chivapuri resembles the combination of green nature and sea found in Ko Chang. The Resort is located in the south part of the island, near the fishing village Bang Bao (almost 30 minutes walking). With the exception of few other resorts nearby, Chivapuri is quite isolated and difficult to reach. So, if you want to visit the more crowded villages of the upper west side, be aware that it needs time and logistics. Nonetheless, the hotel provides everything and you can definitely spend some days and nights there, relaxing by the pool or by the beach, having massage at the beach, dining or drinking cocktails on the sand. Staff is extremely friendly and made our stay even better. Overall, Chivapuri is a true gem that reflects the exotic nature of the islands in Thailand.

Everything was just fantastic - the outdoor facility, the rooms, the food and the beach! There is nothing i could criticize. Thank you Chivapuri Team for this amazing stay!

secluded beach paradise”

remote location, 5-star accommodation, helpful staff

Chivapuri is the most remote resort on the island, located at the Southern end of the main road. This provided the seclusion, quiet, and safety that we were looking for. There were only around 5 other guests at the resort at any one time, so we pretty much had the pool and beach to ourselves. Since its located far from the main tourist areas, you are guaranteed that there aren't any pickpockets, pan-handlers, or other unwanted people hanging around. The restaurant itself was simple and sparse. It provides basic sustenance, but nothing amazing. The breakfast is a simple American buffet - eggs, toast, bacon, sausages, fruit, and juice. Since we had a car, we ended up going out to eat for dinners. Located about 2km is the fisherman's village, where you can eat excellent, fresh seafood. My wife and I must have eaten 200 oysters during our stay. The biggest advantage of the resort, its seclusion, is also its biggest problem. Ko Chang is a very hilly island with treacherous roads. To get from the North to the South you must climb and descend several hills that exceed 45 degrees with curves in the ascent and descent. We had a 4x4 SUV, so it wasn't bad, but I saw many foreigners struggling on scooters. There are many taxis, all of whom drive way too fast. The beach bar at Chivapuri closes shortly after dark, so if you need evening entertainment, you must make your way down those treacherous roads. We always made sure to be back before dark, but I assume there are many injuries and deaths on those steep hillside curves after the bars close. We saw one foreign couple crash their scooter in front of us on a downhill slope during a sudden rain. The roads on this island are not safe. I gave the resort 5 stars for everything except features, solely because it is remote and there is nothing to do except swim in the ocean, swim in the pool, eat, and sleep. This was fine for our family and staff, but I can assume that someone looking for excitement would quickly get bore

Location, quietness, helpful staff

We were prepared for the slightly rocky last 1 km getting to Chivapuri from reading other reviews and had to pay the shared taxi driver an extra 200 Baht. Other than this our stay was problem-free and we found the mix of peaceful relaxation in a lush garden setting and access to nightlife at the nearby restaurants and bars that we were looking for. The temporary manager was friendly and helpful, as were the rest of the staff. Our "deluxe beach villa" room was spacious and conveniently located for the pool, beach and restaurant. We understand that the owners have plans to build another ten bungalows on the site for next year, which might change the character of the place. Currently the facilities are fairly lightly used and you can often have the pool to yourself. Others have commented that the food in the restaurant is mediocre and expensive. Although the prices are a bit higher than independent places nearby, they were no more so than you would expect from a resort and the standard of the food seemed to us to be good enough, though not exceptional. All in all, we were very happy with our choice in staying at Chivapuri.
