UPDATED MAY 2016

klong-chao-resorts-koh-kood-resorts

On Klong Chao Beach, the central spot on the west coast, you will find a complete range of accommodation from luxury high end resorts to guesthouses, homestays and backpacker rooms.

Klong Chao Resorts – On the Beach

The resorts, and pretty sumptuous they are too, front onto the beach, offering a mixture of villas, suites and rooms, spas and swimming pools.

High Season is the most luxurious on offer, with exquisitely designed pool villas in a very private tropical garden setting, online prices start at 16,000bt a night. Wendy the Pool sits next door, their 8 or so villas built around a common pool, flopping from your verandah to water in a couple of steps, prices range from 11,000bt a night.

Peter Pan Resort and Tinkerbell Privacy make up the quartet, slightly cheaper than the other two resorts, with villas from 4,000bt upwards. Incidentally, if you are curious about their names, we can find no evidence that J.M.Barrie took his annual hols on Koh Kood.

Away Resort is on the northern headland, separated from the other beach accommodation by a narrow sea channel. It’s more in the 3 star range with prices from 3,000bt a night.

New in 2016, Jungle Koh Kood has now opened its doors at a lovely location a few kilometres inland near the Klong Chao Waterfall. It has a wide selection of a/c bungalows from 2,500bt.

Klong Chao Bungalows

Suiting more modest budgets, much cheaper bungalows and homestays line one bank of the river just a short walk from the sand. There are also further choices inland near Klong Chao Waterfall.

Klong Chao Bungalows – On the River

On the quiet road behind the beach, Klong Chao Garden View offers fan bungalows at 400bt to 500bt a night. Mark House, the arrival point for Bang Bao Boats inter-island speedboat is on the river nearby, prices from 1,000bt. Doy Homestay, an authentic Thai fisherman’s house on the other side of the bridge, provides basic fan rooms at 400bt. It’s also home to Koh Kood Boat Trip, excellent for a day’s snorkeling off the island.

Continuing upstream but accessible from the little road that runs inland, you have 6 or so different small bungalow resorts and homestays. The tiny Ba Reang Mai, 500bt per night upwards, is immediately behind Klong Chao Garden View, with Klong Chao Homestay, popular with Thai packages alongside. Ta Yai Homestay, the old Cozy House, has simple fan rooms, with shared bathroom or larger bungalows, 400bt to 2,000bt. Accommodation at the very peaceful Mangrove Bungalows is in the 1,000bt bracket, whilst at the end of the row, the new Cozy House ranges from 600bt for fan to 1,200bt for a/c and completes the set.

Klong Chao Bungalows – Inland

Two kilometres further inland towards the waterfall, a couple of spots, PD Guesthouse, rooms starting at 300bt and Mata Guesthouse, from 500bt a night, might suit long term travellers. They are also more than happy for your to pitch a tent, 100bt a day. Of course, it’s more of a hike to the sea and the restaurants near the bridge, but you do have the popular hang-out Bartist on your doorstep.

Klong Chao Bungalows – On the Hill

Up on the hill as you leave Klong Chao Beach heading south, Good View Resort, with its fabulous vantage point looking down on the beach below, has just a few bungalows on offer, prices from 500bt a night.

Pricing Code/Per night in Baht (B):
B= under 500; BB= 500 to 1,500; BBB= 1,500 to 3,000; BBBB= over 3,000;
