Beaches on koh mak are not good for swimming, all them are rocky. And there is not much of wild nature either. Nevertheless koh mak worth visiting for its atmosphere of privacy. You probably shouldn't go there if it is your first visit to Thailand or if you want to visit only one place. But if you still want to... More

A group of 5 of us stayed here for two nights in the beachfront bungalows. The whole trip was really easy and reasonably priced- although you can get very basic accommodation a lot cheaper in Koh Mak. The hotel organised transport for us from Bangkok. We were warmly welcomed. The rooms are lovely and clean. The scenery spectacular. The food... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights after 3 nights on Koh hang. The trip from Koh Chang was by speed boat and you are dropped off at a nearby dock requiring a taxi ride to the property. The property has a very mellow vibe and is perfect for a relaxing, quiet, unpretentious holiday stop...... The perfect remedy from the... More

I stayed here for 4 nights this november and loved it. This is far from a perfect resort, but it has a lot of charm to make up for the small flaws that it may have. I rented a motorbike for a day, and is quite certain that Ao Kao has by far the best location in all of Koh... More

Unfortunately when we visited koh mak ot was the low season, so the island was completely empty and basically everything was closed, so there was not so much to do over there. By the way the resort was quite nice and well mantained, the staff was very helpful providing us everything we need. I think during the high season It... More

We rented the resort Golf Car and went around most of the beautiful island but... More

This is a good family resort, the staff are extremely helpful and delightful. It does need a bit of upgrading, in our opinion all t he beds should have mattress covers and the pillows were pretty disgusting. The bathrooms could do with a makeover too. Contrary to what we had heard we were not troubled by sand flies at all.... More
