We got Sukorn Beach Bungalows recommended by a friend. He had stayed her before and also advised us to book an island hopping tour with Dick&Dee (name of the owners). It is worth mentioning that many of his friends have now tried this resort and liked it very much.
Well in advance of our trip we mailed the resort and got a prompt reply and very forthcoming assistance. After a discussion and on Dick&Dee's recommendation we decided on a three day boat trip and three nights at the resort after the boat trip.
Everything happened as agreed with pick-up, island hopping and the stay at the resort! For the island hopping we could chose between five islands to stay in. We chose Koh Kumook and Koh Kradan. The Kumook resort was very nice with well maintained bungalows. On Kradan the bungalows were a lot simpler but absolutely bareable. Both places had aircon and wifi.
During the time on the boat we stopped at several reefs for snorkling and the guide knew when to be at the various places to make most of tides and time of day. We also stopped on a remote island one day where the guide and the boat crew made us a fantasic lunch prepared on a single gas stove on the boat. The boat was a traditional Thai Longboat with two crew in addition to the guide.
The Sukorn Bach Bungalow resort was by far the nicest place we stayed. Everything is very clen and neat. No litter outside, very nice bungalows and a charming peaceful air over the place. Good food in the restaurant and a long stretch of clean beach.
Nothing much to see on the island itself. A few villages and lots of waterbuffalo.
If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, away from the noisy crowds in the bigger resorts this place is just the spot. Even though the island hopping is basic it was what made the trip more than just another resort to visit!
