South and East Coast – Koh Mak Resorts and Bungalows

UPDATED MAY 2017

koh-mak-resorts-south-east-coastKoh Mak resorts and bungalows on the south and east coast are secluded, very peaceful affairs, probably best for couples rather than families.

Because of the lack of good sand beaches, swimming pools are the norm and for a few days to escape the world, they might make a perfect choice.

There are no restaurants or shops, so you will be most likely dining in-house or hire a motorbike to give yourself a lot more flexibility.

Simply follow the links below to find more detailed listings.

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, perfectly isolated on small private coarse sand beaches.

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. Next door, Sea View Resort has opened in the last year with 10 or so a/c bungalows, whilst on the hill beneath Buri Huts still attracts the Russian clientele.

Further back towards the pier, Sea Breeze is more of a conventional bungalow resort, but the rooms are large, which together with its pool and terrific ocean views, makes it also definitely worth a look.

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

In Koh Mak’s south, 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 has now added 6 or so more deluxe bungalows.

Pano Resort is wonderfully out of the way in the far south corner as is Talay Time at the very southern tip and Banana Sunset on the same coast offers cute little beach huts in a separate cove to the restaurant and bar.

Naivacha Tent is also now offering a real glamping experience in an area know as Ao Daeng, accessed off the road to Banana Sunset.

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.
