We loved our stay at Bann Makok. We had room 8 on the corner which we would highly recommend. It's a small hotel in a fantstic location. The rooms are not super quiet or super new but they are really lovely and have a special feel. We loved showering outdoors. Right on the river which we jumped into several times from our room. A five minute kayak (provided for free) brings you to a beautiful and almost deserted beach and there is another hotel with a lovely open bar on the end of the beach/cove with completely unobstructed views. Also we have to plug the food in the Bann Makok restaurant (it should be busy 24/7 but it isn't). It's not the cheapest on the island (nor anything like the most expensive) but it is really fantastic (and we've eaten a lot of Thai food) so very good value. Very friendly and helpful staff. We would absolutely love to return.…
We stayed in December 19 at Bann Makok which is a little hidden paradise. We were really well taken care of. Thanks to the ALL the staff for every attention we received for the cool athmosphere and for the amazing New Year dinner/party...will never forget !!!I Please don't change :-) We will be back!!
We stayed at Bann Makok for 4 nights and we loved it. We stayed in room 8 and it was beautiful with the views and the deck over the mangroves. The staff were very friendly and helpful and even took us out to see the fireflies. The beach is stunning and there was noone there, it only takes a few minutes to kayak there. There are a lot of sand flies though which is the case on any quiet beach where they are not disturbed. You are very secluded here and a fair distance from other restaurants and bars but it is easy to hire a motorbike or get a taxi and the seclusion is lovely. The food here is very good too.
A real getaway at a very special place - heartwarming, wonderful nature, very nice stuff, great food. yes, it's in the mangroves, the smells are sometimes mangrove-like, but the silence, the views, the water and the peoples smiles weigh it all up. very charming, clean rooms!
The location of the resort dies not have a sign posted on the main road. I was stranded one evening returning there. The place has some nice characters but it is infested with mosquitoes. The beds have mosquito nets but they are not enough to prevent the insects to sting you!
