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

This is going to sound as if somebody paid me to write this but I can assure you it's real. My husband and I were looking for a little quiet paradise were we didnt have to be surrouded by other tourists. We booked this retreat after looking at many hotels in the island and for what I have seen this... More

Beautiful views, comfortable bungalows, good food and a nice pool. The resort is a bit far from the more popular beaches and restaurants, but that's sort of the point - they are easily reachable by taxi or motorbike while the place stays quiet and relaxing.

I and my husband and our daughter spent a lovely week in late October 2014 at Plubpla in Koh Mak. The location is a tranquil bay, perfect for small children, and the resort is very well kept, peaceful and beautiful. The food is truly delicious and not at all too adapted to foreign visitors. You need not venture to other... More

If you want real relax for a few days - this is the right choice. Nice new bungalows with terraces and the sea view. Excellent breakfast, bike rent, great infinity pool,... The most polite and helpful staff ever. The only negative: hotel charges a fee of 3% for credit card payment.

Well. After taking a small plane from Trat, then a speed boat to the island. It was worth the distance. The location is so lovely. The staff are so friendly. The rooms are immaculate. They clean them everyday (and are very through with at least 3 cleaners per room). If you want a place to recharge and relax. This place... More

The far end of the island is quiet and beautiful. The design and views are world class. The resort is very clean and if you are a "take charge of my circumstances and activities" kind of traveler you will enjoy it This is a recently discovered island and is living through the transition of "figure it out yourself" travel ,...

Absolutely perfect hideaway. We stayed 10 nights. This was our second time there and we will go back for sure. Bungalows are modern and clean. Beach is ok and infinity pool was great. Staff was very helpful - ask anything and you will get it! There is really nothing to complain about.
