“When An Extraordinary View Just Isn't Enough!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Not when you're living in a box....a very small, quite expensive 650bht wooden box. Only things inside the box was a matress on the floor, a bare lightbulb and a mozzie net that had seen better days (to be fair this was replaced after 3 days) Water not provided. We did have a bathroom of sorts and a deck area where we spent most of our time when not swimming. The advertised restaurant and chill out area was not open when we arrived....waiting for the bosses orders apparantly....so we were forced to eat and drink at the next door resort. Btl of Chang 140bht?!!! Fortunately there was a mini-mart close by which opened and closed whenever the urge took the owners. Finally when the restaurant opened the food available was good quality at a reasonable price. Ravaged by sandflies (yes we were warned) and very disappointed by the lack of atmosphere and dirty beaches on Koh MaK we left a week earlier than intended.

Room Tip: Rubber Tree House had largest deck area.....beware of falling coconuts!

The owner was extreeemely nice and helpful. Food was pretty delicious as well! The beach was nice and calm and kept clean by some dude, way better than the other side of the island where it was dirty and waves were strong. We got a free meal one night because it was one of the hotel owner's birthday which was awesome. I looooooved koh mak and i'm so happy we stayed at suchanaree. There were more luxurious hotels or bungalows closeby but i thought this place was just right.

Very good and cheap accommodation Suchanaree Bungalows. Bungalows but are very moderate and without air conditioning. On the earth are mattresses, but the bungalow is very clean. The owner is nice and friendly. I spent 6 nights here and I was very satisfied. Suchanaree is the most beautiful beach on the island of Koh Mak, there is still a paradise !!!!!! The food was very tasty at affordable prices. I would like to get there soon came back and stayed there more času.Našel my heaven on earth!

My partner and I stayed at the Suchanaree beach huts in November 2008. We were looked for a relaxed place right on the beach and we weren't dissappointed. It's a small simple family run operation. The huts themselves have no frills but they are clean and have a attached bathroom. The main attraction of Suchanaree is the beautiful location. It's at the prettiest part of Ao Suan Yai Beach. The huts themselves are nestled amongst the coconut trees. On one side of the huts there is just nature and tropical vegetation. On the other side of the huts is the upmarket ko maak resort so you've got all the conveniences (such as internet, mini market, restuarants and a nice little beach bar) close at hand. Suchanaree itself has a small but adequate restaurant. The owners of suchanaree don't speak a huge amount of english but were very friendly. There is a guy from northern ireland on site, who takes up residence there every year for the dry season who is always around to give you any info you might need (anything from directions round the island, to the football results and a daily update on the bbc weather reports). If you're looking for peace and quiet and nature i can recommend this place. A perfect place for a mellow time and a top spot for watching the sun set.
