Ao Suan Yai Beach Resorts and Bungalows

Starting our resorts round-up on Ao Suan Yai Beach, the principal places to stay on this lovely stretch of beach are Seavana Beach Resort and Koh Mak Resort, which between them stretch all the way from the central wooden pier to the southern end.

Seavana Resort, one of Koh Mak’s very best resorts, offers 4 types of room with their deluxe seaview starting at 5,000bt, their seafront suite at 7,500bt per night. Koh Mak Resort, next door, has bungalows from 1,800bt, through 3,500bt for standard beachfront and up to 6,900bt for its deluxe family suite.

Heading the other way from the pier, Prompakdee Koh Mak Resort offers a nice choice of a/c rooms at 2,500bt for a double, whilst still further north from them, Happy Days, has its own selection of larger a/c bungalows, all uniquely constructed from coconut tree wood, again at around 3,500bt a night.

Carrying on down the sand, the beach remains undeveloped, great for a peaceful walk as the sun sets or also to seek out that track to the remote and untouched Turtle Beach in the far north.

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;

Resorts on The Central Hill above Ao Suan Yai Beach

The small road behind Koh Mak Resort and Seavana Beach Resort heads off across the island via a central hill to the south west beach at Ao Kao or onto the Ao Pra Beach and ultimately Laem Tookata.

This central hill is home to a few holiday houses and Islanda Hotel Resort, all with magnificent views over the bay below and out to Koh Kham in the distance. Islanda Hotel Resort offers rooms from 3,000bt to 4,500bt set around its central swimming pool.

Resorts on Ao Pra Beach

Shortly after these resorts on the central hill, another turning drops sharply down to Cococape Resort, which sits all on its own on the headland between Ao Suan Yai and Ao Pra Beach, a bit of a walk back along the rocks to the beach at Ao Suan Yai.

Cococape Resort has all manner of themed rooms and villas ranging from 2,500bt to 10,000bt per night in peak season.

One of Koh Mak’s best luxury boutique resorts, Mira Montra Resort, is the only resort on Ao Pra beach itself, about 10 minutes walk along the sand from Cococape. Through booking sites, their hillside rooms start at 3,200bt, a deluxe villa is available at 6,500bt, their beachfront family villa at 11,000bt.

Ao Suan Yai and Ao Pra – The Area

By the pier on Ao Suan Yai, Koh Mak Resort has its I Talay restaurant and bar and there’s a small ticket office and minimart. The western style Pineapple Cafe sits at the back behind I Talay.

Thai Sabai Bar, in front of Prompakdee, is great for sunset drinks, snacks on the beach and indeed, from time to time, full-on parties. Meanwhile, Day Beds at Seavana, with its restaurant, bar, pool table and beachside location, is also very popular.

Without transport, you can easily just hang out in and around your resort and this would be part of Ao Suan Yai’s attraction – peace, quiet and privacy. On the other hand, it’s easy to find a taxi, rent a motorbike (250bt a day) or the walk to Ao Kao Beach is only about 15 to 20 minutes.

Behind the Beach

On a parallel road north to the one which runs behind Koh Mak Resort and Seavana, Koh Mak Organic Farm offers a full menu, with the fruit and veg coming from their garden. This road joins up with that other one at the bottom of the hill (villas, Good Time Resort, Islanda) which overlooks the beach. You’ll also find a Japanese diner, 12 Bars and a minimart here.

From the Hill to Ao Kao Beach

If you choose the hill for accommodation, it’s an easy walk from there to the restaurant strip on Ao Kao for more dining choices and a bit more action, though do take a torch.

On the hill down to Ao Kao Beach, Art House offers live music and a laid back atmosphere.

Ao Phra Beach

Ao Pra Beach is on its own, so if staying at Mira Montra Resort, do note there are no other restaurants or bars nearby. It is walkable at night (with a good torch) over to Ao Kao, 15 to 20 minutes or you can use a taxi. After 22.00, the taxi charge increases from 50bt to 100bt per person.

UPDATED July 23 for 23/24 Season
