South and East Coast – Koh Mak Resorts and Bungalows

UPDATED for 2018/19 Season

koh mak resorts south east coastAccommodation on the south and east coasts of Koh Mak includes three boutique resorts, some mid-range bungalow resorts, a couple of backpacker or traveller options and even some glamping tents.

Despite the south and east coasts not having the same quality of beach as found at Ao Kao and Ao Suan Yai, the resorts and bungalows are still deservedly popular, with their wonderful seclusion, peace and quiet and ‘away from it all’ feel. This does perhaps mean they are better suited to couples and young families rather than to families with elder children.

Around the resorts, there is very little else going on, with no restaurants or shops, so you will be most likely dining in-house or hire a motorbike to give yourself a lot more flexibility. The resorts too have transport on hand as needed.

Koh Mak Resorts and Bungalows – East Coast

For two of Koh Mak’s best boutique resorts, look no further than Koh Mak Plubpla Resort and Little Moon Villa, both way over on the east coast at Ao Pai and Ao Khanoun, perfectly isolated on small private coarse sand beaches.

Koh Mak Plubpla Resort offers seaview villas from 4,500bt going up to 6,200bt for its deluxe beachfront villa. It does have a swimming pool. Little Moon Villa starts at 2,500bt for its standard villa, up to 5,900bt for its largest family bungalow.

On the same coast, but nearer to Ao Nid, Bamboo Hideaway is indeed that, with its bungalows constructed entirely from bamboo, raised up and joined by walkways and a small swimming pool that looks out over the horizon. Fan rooms start from 1,500bt in high season.

Next door, Sea View Resort has 10 or so a/c bungalows from 1,300bt upwards, whilst on the hill beneath Buri Huts still attracts a mix of Thai and Russian packages.

Further back towards the pier, Sea Breeze is a conventional family run bungalow resort, with large rooms, which together with its pool and terrific ocean views, makes it also definitely worth a look. Standard rooms from 2,300bt up to deluxe seaview bungalows at 3,500bt

The new concrete roads which criss cross the island have made access to all of these resorts much easier.

Koh Mak Resorts and Bungalows – South Coast

On Koh Mak‘s south coast, there are a couple of cheaper alternatives to those in the east that might suit backpackers and travellers.

Near Ao Nid, Ao Pong Resort is within walking distance of the pier, so not completely cut off and it also has 6 or so deluxe seaview bungalows. Basic fan rooms start at 750bt, going up to 2,500bt per night for the deluxe.

Pano Resort is wonderfully out of the way in the far south corner, unique stilted rooms from 750bt, whilst the charming Talay Time at the very southern tip overlooking Koh Kood, has various bungalows from 1,200bt to 2,000bt. Banana Sunset on the same coast offers cute little beach huts in a separate cove to its restaurant and popular bar, as well as its seaview superior bungalows nearer to the action, prices from 750bt to 1,500bt.

Naivacha Tent offers a real glamping experience in an area know as Ao Daeng, accessed off the road to Banana Sunset. Safari style tents, complete with bathrooms and a/c, start at 2,000bt for a twin and up to 2,500bt for the triple.

Off the beaten track in the far south of the island, tiny Thai resort with 8 or so standard a/c bungalows by the sea, Koh Kood on the horizon. Wifi, small restaurant, boat trips, can snorkel offshore. Would need a motorbike.

From all places, free transport is usually offered to Ao Kao Beach or Ao Suan Yai, though being able to ride a motorbike would definitely make the island seem that much more manageable.
