Koh Kood resorts, bungalows, gueshouses and homestays total about 130 and are almost all located on the west coast.

The high end market is dominated by Soneva Kiri in the far north of the island where prices start at around 45,000bt a night for pool villas. High Season on Klong Chao Beach is cheaper, with their villas ranging from 13,500bt to 30,000bt.


Luxurious 3/4 star resorts include The Beach Natural Resort on Bang Bao Beach, Wendy The Pool, Peter Pan Resort and Tinkerbell Privacy on Klong Chao Beach. Captain Hook Resort accessed only by sea in Klong Yai Kee and Cham’s House on Ao Takian Beach are two other great choices to look out for.

Rooms in these Koh Kood resorts range from 5,000bt up to 18,000bt for deluxe, sea view and pool villas.

3 Star

In the 3/4 star range feature, you can check out To The Sea Resort and Koh Kood Resort at the northern end of Bang Bao Beach, Koh Kood Beach Resort in Klong Mad and Koh Kood Paradise Beach Resort, Meedee Resort or Seafar Resort on Ao Tapao. Rates go from 4,000bt to 10,000bt in high season.


You’ll find excellent boutique choices across the island from Bann Makok upstream from Captain Hook in Klong Yai Kee, rfom 3,500bt a night. Shantaa, with its fabulous seaviews from high up on the hill in Ao Tapao, combines romantic villas with a new infintity pool, beach bar, cafe and restaurant – assume 5,000bt upwards.

Hideout sits on its own little cove just before Klong Hin Beach, whilst Rest Sea Resort is by the sea down in the south west, Ao Phrao Beach – similar prices to the 3/4 star offerings.

Standard Bungalows

More regular bungalow resorts range from 2,000bt to 4,000bt for a/c ensuite rooms – look out for Sunshine Resort and I-Lay House on Ao Phrao Beach, Dusita Resort on Ngamkho Beach and Siam Beach Resort on Bang Bao Beach.

Traveller and Backpacker

Happily, Koh Kood has not forgotten backpackers and budget travellers with a growing number of places including Mangrove Bungalows, Ngamkho Resort, Rim Talay, Cozy House, Klong Chao Garden View, PD Guesthouse, Eve House and Baan Bua Cottage.

You may get a bargain at 250bt upwards for the most basic backpacker style hut inland at Klong Chao Beach, but in all likelihood will pay around 500bt to 800bt for an ensuite hot shower room. Standard a/c bungalows and homestays start at 1,200bt or thereabouts.

Room prices on Koh Kood are considerably higher than on Koh Chang and Koh Mak, so you will need to book early if you want to secure your choice and get the best deal.

On the road to Khao Reurab (Battleship Mountain), Baan Suan Maprao is a popular choice with just a handful of bungalows in the garden behind its resort from 1.500bt a night,


At the northern end by the road, the two adjoining guesthouses, the German run Happy Days Guesthouse and the Italian owned Big Dreams, have both shut down due to the pandemic. Rumour has it that the former may reopen in high season 22/23 but the latter has seemingly gone for good.

Ao Tapao Beach – Koh Kood Resorts, Bungalows

Heading north from Klong Chao, Ao Tapao Beach offers up plenty of places to stay both on its excellent beach and in and around the main road, home to the central administration area.
