Travel reviews for Chaloklum Bay Resort
Date of stay: Feb 23, 2014
Accommodation and facilities:
The view and positioning of the resort is great however the resort and rooms are very tired looking and needed maintenance. The restaurant also needs some attention and food was very average compared to the rest of the island.

Hotel pictures and facilities
The main northern village of Chaloklum is expanding to cater for more than just the fishing trade that it's well know for.
It is still mainly a Thai village that hasn't yet been over-effected by tourism and there is a wealth of cheap Thai restaurants serving tasty
fresh squid and other local catches; but the place is also getting a bit of funky feel with the opening of some cool bars
and cafes including Caf DelMar, an open air club / bar in the village.
Chaloklum's maritime roots mean that fishing and diving trips are easy to take from here,
it is also home to Koh Phangan's northernmost port making it the main transit point to visit Bottle Beach,
or any of the other surrounding beaches by boat.
Chaloklum Bay Resort is located on the quiet western end of Ao Chaloklum in front of the bay's with white sandy beach and coral reef. The resort includes 30 villa to choose from prices to suit any budget providing modern facilities, situated around with a central swimming pool.
Well designed resort has fused traditional Thai and modern influences to create a well laid out and spacious landscape
that is both pleasing to eye and functional. All the villa face the beach and are positioned
so that there is a sea view from every balcony and enough space between them for complete privacy.
The resort was previously a coconut plantation and most of the tall palms remain,
giving shade to the lush gardens and cooling the buildings.
