South and East Coast Resorts, Bungalows – Koh Mak Resorts

South and east coast resorts on Koh Mak include three boutique resorts, some mid-range bungalow resorts, a couple of backpacker or traveller options and even some glamping tents.

Despite this part of the island 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.


Prices given are for the peak Xmas period via booking sites, not the hotel websites. They are intended as guides only.

East Coast Resorts and Bungalows

For two of Koh Mak’s best boutique resorts, look no further than Koh Mak Plubpla Resort and Villa Allure, both way over on the east coast at Ao Pai and Ao Khanoun respectively, 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. Villa Allure starts at 3,500bt for its standard villa, up to 7,500bt for its largest family bungalow (with 2 bedrooms).

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 1,400bt upwards, whilst on the hill beneath Buri Huts attracts mainly Thai packages, prices from 1,200bt for a garden view room.

Further back towards the pier, Sea Breeze is one of the conventional family run south and east coast resorts. Its large rooms – standard from 2,300bt, deluxe seaview at 3,500bt – its pool and the terrific ocean views make it definitely worth a look.

Due to the pandemic, resorts and hotels are showing reduced prices in peak season at the moment – these may yet go up in late 21/22 depending on the global situation for international travel.

South Coast Resorts and Bungalows

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 1,200bt, going up to 4,500bt per night for the deluxe. Nearby, Coffee and Sweetcake has both B & B rooms on the way to Ao Pong  and an appartment in the big house next door to its cafe, prices from 1,300bt.

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 2,500bt.

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 1,200bt upwards.

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.
