Koh mak with a nine-month-old baby?

My husband and I are planning to go to Koh mak with our baby. a friend is getting married there.

The wedding is at ao kao white sand beach resort. They say they have no two-bedroom bungalows/rooms at that resort. Does anyone know of a place within walking distance that has two-bedroom accomodation (whether it's a room, bungalow or villa)?

Also, are sandflies an issue?

Any advice about travelling with a baby to the area would be very much appreciated.

There are sandflies :-)

At Makathanee Resort at the same stretch of beach and at Koh Mak Resort on the opposite side of the island they do provide family accommodation. There might be more.

Try palm beach resort it is next door to ao kao with nicer bungalows in my opinionhttp://palm-beach-resort.com/Welcome.html also lazy day is within walking distance

Sandflies are a big problem on the island, the only thing to stop them is to put on coconut oil on any exposed parts whilst on the beach it is the ONLY thing that works, I know I have been going to KM for the last 3 years and tried all the other anti insect repellants etc There is a good product called Arnywear which may be useful for your baby I know of other mother who have used these products with success but I have not tried them but will be doing this year when we go in Dec. Here is a useful web site where you can contact Mr Ball he knows everthing about KM
