Ngamkho Beach and Bang Bao Beach – Koh Kood Resorts and Bungalows

UPDATED MAY 2016

koh-kood-resorts-bang-bao-ngamkho

As you travel south from the centrally located Klong Chao Beach, the next two areas are Ngamkho Beach and Bang Bao Beach.

On Ngamakho Beach, you will find a good selection of 2 to 3 star smaller family run bungalow operations, but also some cheaper backpacker spots.

On Bang Bao Beach, further down the coast, you can pick from a handful of higher priced resorts at the northern end or simpler bungalows at the southern end.

Ngamkho Beach

Heading south from Klong Chao Beach, the road soon arrives at the back of Ngamkho Beach, with S Beach Resort and Happy Days Guesthouse at the bottom of the first hill.

Northern end

S Beach Resort, an older and slightly eccentric spot, offers different sized bungalows, prices from 1,000bt to 2,000bt, dotted around the gentle slope down to the beach, with a terrific sandy area at the bottom and a sandbank that comes and goes with the tide. Opposite by the road, Happy Days Guesthouse, German owned and connected with Paradise Divers, has cheap accommodation in a small two storey motel style building, rooms from 450bt fan up to 800bt with a/c, a possible choice for travellers at this end.

Central Section

Next up, the family run Dusita Resort has both fan and a/c rooms or bungalows scattered about its immaculately kept lawn and garden, with prices starting at 1,500bt for standard and going up to 4,000bt for the largest at peak season, all highly recommended. The friendly hang-out of Ngamkho Resort grabs the backpacker market, but it has recently upgraded its huts, so those days of the very cheap fan, mozzie net and shared bathroom, are now sadly gone, new rates from 750bt a night. Next door, the deservedly popular Horizon Resort, French owned, sits on the brow of the hill and down its slopes, with rates hovering around 2,000bt a night.

Southern end

In the next cove along, A-na-lay Resort offers bungalow accommodation from 2,500bt in all different shapes and sizes, some on the top looking out to sea, others around the small pool and on the inclines and a further selection on the creek by the tiny Hat Sai Daeng Beach.

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;
