The setting is lovely. Each 'room' is a separate villa linked by wooden walkways to the central restaurant, bar & pool area. Be careful which type of villa you select. They are arranged in 3 rows, each row behind the other. Only those villas in the row nearest the sea could truly be said to have a sea view. Many... More

Plubpla resort is in a small and quite island. Its not the easiest to get to but once here it is absolutely amazing. Everyone has their own little bungalow beautifully furnished. There is indoors and outdoors showers, good size bathroom with necessities being replenished every day. Walkways are raised of the ground, which makes it very different from the rest... More

Lovely little hotel. Brilliant food. Rooms are detached beech bungalows. Beautiful for a day or 2. Very very relaxing. No near by pubs. Please clean under the bed and show how to use hot tub. Remote location. Amazing bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower. Very peaceful.

Plub Pla is a sensational retreat--with excellent management and staff, a beautiful setting, an infinity pool, and easy access to all parts of this small island. You cannot go wrong booking here! The owner treats his guests with the same attention he would give to family.

One of the most beautiful and relaxed resorts I have ever visited in my many years of travel. The resort reflects the Island of Koh Mak as it is laid back, beautiful, peaceful and very affordable. Each room is a separate lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. The food and staff are delightful and relaxed and eager to please in... More

We like the place however on arrival the staff informed us there is 3% additional charge for credit card payment. We booked 3 rooms in total for 2 nights, so my question is who would carry that much cash to pay a hotel? The room is nice, the toilet is big but the toilet seat looks ugly.

We spent 4 nights in this resort. We really enjoyed our stay. We are travelling 3 months and this was perfect way to start the trip. We wanted to relax and we really did. Beautiful pool and quiet private beach. Beach isn't that good for swimming because of the rocks but the pool was excellent. There isn't anything else near... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during the low and rainy season. The resort is beyond exceptional. It is more private than the other resorts which are located close to each other. We stayed at the beachfront bungalow 2. It is very close to the beach but the beach itself is not swimmable as it is a shallow rocky seabed.... More

If you're looking for an escape from Bangkok, don't bother going to Ko Mak and definitely not to this resort - it is not worth the extremely long journey! Granted, July is low season and we were one of three couples staying at the hotel, but the employees on hand are completely inexperienced and disinterested in the guests. The breakfast... More
