My wife and I stayed here 5 nights from November 15-20 and enjoyed every second. Getting to Koh Kut takes a bit of time and effort, but once your here it’s amazing. After a long day of travel from Suvarnabhumi airport, we arrived at The Beach Natural Resort and were blown away by the views from the hotel lobby. Everything else was just as amazing. We stayed in a Natural Cottage room which was spacious and well equipped. The bed was a true king, not a couple of doubles pushed together, and was easily the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in Asia! The entire room was very well appointed with very good AC, a skylight in the bathroom, safe and lots of nice little touches. The resort is located in a beautiful setting in Ao Bang Bao. Everything about the resort was first class, but the warmth and friendliness of the staff was unparalleled, even for the renowned Thai friendliness. The included buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied and was absolutely delicious. It had perhaps the best bacon I have ever had. It was nice and thin with just the right crispiness. There was an equal amount of Western and Asian food choice with an abundant selection of fruit and juices, and premium coffee. Lunch and dinner food items were equally as good, albeit with secluded resort prices which are to be expected given your isolated location. Even then, the prices were still relatively cheap. Seating for breakfast, lunch, or dinner was available in several locations: either inside or outside right at the restaurant, or down on tables on the sand by the beach, or on a raised deck also by the beach. At night, there are fairly lights with tables set right on the sand. I can’t think of a better place to enjoy a meal or a happy hour beverage. Happy hour, with deals on beer and drinks happened every day from 4-6. Sitting up by the restaurant or down by the beach watching the sunset was memorable. The beach was crystal clear and was nice and calm given that it’s located within a bay. Although the beach is not your typical wide sandy beach, it was nevertheless beautiful with a sandy bottom. The hotel has several entrances into the beach including two step ladders down from the dock. The water is perfectly calm. Kayaks were available, which we used frequently, for free. There is not much to do at night in terms of nightlife as Ko Kut is a rather quiet island, but that’s exactly what we were looking for. So, don’t go there expecting Phuket style nightlife. Scooters are available for rent, which we did, but be advised that the roads on Koh Kut are very steep and windy! This is not the island to learn how to ride a scooter. Also, there are some restaurants and convenience stores outside of the resort, but it’s quite a hike to get there walking if you don’t have a scooter. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The resort is absolutely beautiful, is located in a beautiful location, the staff are incredibly friendly, the food is great, and the beach is amazing. The prices are not exactly cheap, but you are always going to pay a premium for being somewhat isolated. For us, the cost was well worth the value we got from our visit and we would highly recommend The Beach Natural Resort.…
It could be a lovely spot with friendly staff at the restaurant and decent Thai food but fellow customers or staff will feel free to steel your stuff. And the management will just answer « I can’t do anything » without even thinking a second about compensating for the loss and inconvenience. Too bad these kind of places still exist in Thailand.
The small resort is situated in the Bang Bao bay, probably the nicest location on the beautiful Island Koh Kood. There are not many places where I have had the feeling that I could stay much longer, but in this place it was difficult for me to leave. The only thing to mention to the hotel manager; would you please install more sunbeds for your guests and exchange the old bath and beach towels. It is not a big effort but it will make the stay perfect. Thank you. We will come again!
We cannot rate this place highly enough! Well designed bungalows in a beautiful setting. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped and bathrooms clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and unbelievably helpful. Breakfast was excellent and the restaurant was the perfect setting for a romantic dinner. The beach was just stunning and the sunsets spectacular! We’re already planning our return next year!
Great resort with a beautiful location. Clear water and no rocks on the beach. Easy scooter rent at the hotel and great breakfast with amazing views from the restaurant. The rooms are clean and the bathroom big. The staff is very friendly but some of them lack basic English skills - minor detail. It would be great if the staff would share more information at check inn - where to go for waterfalls, snorkling trips, sunset around the Island etc. Other than that its a perfect place and I would most definitely stay there again in the future. Koh kood is a speciel place with great people.
