I was recommended by a friend of mine to stay here and I am so happy he did it. I stayed at one of the 800baht hut which is located right in front of the beach. At night, you can hear the sound of the waves so well but surprisingly it didn't bother me with falling asleep at all. The... More

We stayed here because everywhere cheaper on the island was full, it was a bit expensive but I'm glad we did! We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. The resort is very nice, right on the beach with a bar too. The room was very comfortable but the shower wasn't the best. The breakfast in... More

Stayed at the Beach Natural resort next door and had to move as they were full so after checking availability this hotel had vacancies. The accomodation is ok, and as we had a newly refurbished bungalow I think we were fortunate. No fridge, no tv( not a problem) and not even a wardrobe or hanging rail never mind a cupboard... More

We usually don't comment on customer reviews, but this seems to be a review on the wrong resort. We are not on Koh Kood, which Beach Natural Resort is. Our neighbors are Palm Beach and Lazy Days. More

Magnificent location with stunning beaches and crystal clear warm sea water. Excellent staff who were friendly and helpful. Hotel is massively overpriced at pubished 8800 thb (160gbp) per night. Ac noisy, restaurant closes 8.00pm and staff leave half an hour later, no pool, min toiletries, no robes, safe broken, no sea view from restaurant due to vegetation, no outside dining,... More

If you want peace and quiet and beach front views this place is for you. The room was lovely especially as it was sea view on the beach. Beware of the sand flies on the beach. We only found out after we had been bit. Food is standard for the island as there isn't much choice. We hired a moped... More

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
