“Most helpful staff ever!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I arrived on Ko Muk having travelled from Ko Lipe and had completely forgotten that there are no ATM's on the island. Not only are there no ATM's, but unlike Ko Lipe, you also can't get cashback in any of the businesses. I stayed in a Double room with a shared bathroom, fan and cold shower. As previously mentioned, this accomodation is very basic but it is also very clean and adequate, being a 2 minute walk from the beach and has a really lovely restaurant... some of the nicest food I tasted in Thailand. Because I pretty much had NO money on the island, the staff were so accomodating, letting me charge my food to the room and pay for it once I got to Ko Lanta. I can't imagine ever receiving service like this anywhere at home. That said, I would not go back to Ko Muk as I didn't feel it was anywhere near as pretty as some of the other islands I visited, and with not a whole lot to do but the service I received while staying here was top notch! Thank you Had Farang.

Room Tip: If it's in your budget to get a room with air con, I would do so... espec in high season.

We had small bungalow with fan and cold shower. Bungalow was very nice but toilet was dirty and smelt weird. Staff were kind and helpful. Hotel restaurant was good. 2min walk to beach. Lots of mosquitos and other bugs because of the jungle around. There was mosquito net over the bed so no problem with sleeping.

These cottages were sweet and totally adequate for our time on Koh Mook. You have to remember that you're on a pretty remote island, it's directed towards backpackers - this is not a fancy hotel! There is a proper bathroom though, a decent bed and you're 5 minutes from an amazing beach. I loved having a little porch with adirondack chairs - there was an epic rainstorm while we were there and we poured some drinks, sat out and watched it.

We had a nice time on the island, inland is much more polluted which is unfortunate, but we really enjoyed walking all over the island. The locals are very friendly!

Restaurant tip: We ate almost every day at the bungalows that were right next to Had Farang towards the beach. Can't remember the name now but they had amazing food.

The worst "hotel" in my life. We had a bungalow placed in forest and at first look great, the monkeys were running around and lots of flowers. But when I looked closely the bed sheeds were really dirty, it smelled really bed from "bathroom". I said ok, we will survive, then we got out to get a bite in recepction and on the way the reception, the snake crawled in front of me. I was really terrified. But the worst was at night. You coudn't have the light on, because of moschitos and all kind of bugs, who came in through the rifts. We couldn't sleep, because the strange noises on the roof of Bungalow, first we thought it was the monkeys, but there were no monkeys around anymore, so I think there were rats. And the price wasn't so cheap, for the bed service we got.

Stayed here three times before,once with our grand children and they loved it. Last time in a new air con room ( now the have elec 24 hours ).Staff very friendly,food good and 5 mins from the beach where you can find the best bar on the Island to have a drink and watch the sun go down,it is call Chill out bar and you really do Chill out. One thing remember to take a torch as it is very dark at night and also lots of mosquito cream as there are many on this Island.Beautiful place for children as it is so safe for them with no cars on the island to worry about.

Room Tip: Try for a room at the bottom of the hill if you have children and ask for 24 hour air con.

We stayed here in air con room in April and were very happy with it,though a wardrobe or at least a rail to hang clothes would be very welcome! Room and bathroom decent size.
Had breakfast here each day and lovely meal one evening,food and service very good.
Beautiful beach and island,would definately stay here again.

We woke up at 1 a.m. and found our bed in our superior cottage crawling with bedbugs. They were under the sheets, in and under the pillows and on the mattress. They bite, they suck blood, and it itches like hell.

We found the caretaker(?) and moved in the middle of the night to another cottage. As the place was full of mosquitoes, we asked that the a/c was turned on. At 2 a.m. we found that spraying the room was not an option. Very reluctantly this was accepted without extra payment.

We had unfortunately pre-paid for 2 nights.

The a/c was switched off the next morning while we were having breakfeast, no refunds for a ruined night was offered, and no appology was given.

We did not see any activity around the infested cottage the next day, and as it is well known, bedbugs will spred from one cottage to another as the bed clothes are washed together.

This is completely unacceptable, and we cannot recommend Had Farang.

They are actually not even in a good location, and their popularity probably mainly rests on the bad reviews of resort Charly.

To avoid any doubts, we have photos of the bedbugs....
