Ngamkho Beach – Resorts, Bungalows and Guesthouses

koh kood resorts bungalows ngamkho beach

Travelling south from the central Klong Chao Beach, the next area down the island is known as Ao Ngamkho Beach.

Though certainly not the island’s best stretch of sand, Ao Ngamkho Beach is a popular part of Koh Kood, with visitors drawn by its small concentration of 2 to 3 star family run bungalow operations, 2 guesthouses and a cheaper backpacker spot. There is also one solitary 3 star resort at the far end.

Ao Ngamkho Beach – Northern end – Resorts and Bungalows

At the northen end of Ao Ngamkho Beach by the sea, S Beach Resort, predominately but not exclusively used by Thai tourist packages, offers different sized bungalows dotted around the gentle slope down to the beach, with prices from 1,000bt to 2,000bt.

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. Big Dreams Guesthouse, itself Italian run, has opened next door, with more cheap rooms in a very similar vein.

Central Section – Resorts and Bungalows

At the start of the inland road to Khao Ruerab (Battleship Mountain), Baan Suan Maprao has become a quietly popular spot, with travellers drawn to its good value 1,500bt bungalows behind the restaurant.

Continuing on down this way, you reach Far East Resort, very easy to spot due to its iconic 2 seater airplane which is parked up on the grass. Popular with Thai packages, the resort provides a wide selection of different style bungalows, from 1,800bt a night.

Next along, another Thai style resort, Suan Nai sits on the corner just after the construction supply company. Its bungalows in the garden rate from 1,500bt.

Finally, Pink Kangaroo Cafe has added some simple rooms at the back of its cafe, available via Airbnb, minium number of nights per booking, prices from 1,200bt a night.

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.

Southern end – Resorts, Bungalows

At the southern end, the friendly hang-out of Ngamkho Resort grabs the backpacker market, rooms from 750bt a night, whilst, the deservedly popular Horizon Resort, French owned, sits on the brow of the hill above – its rates hovering around 2,000bt a night.

Opposite the turning to Ngamkho Resort, hidden away over the bridge in a clearing at the rear, Baan Phuean offers a handful of garden bungalows at 1,800bt upwards.

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 yet more on the inclines and the creek by the tiny Hat Sai Daeng Beach.
