Koh Mak still feels like a Thai Island and The Big Easy has the best food, the friendliest hosts, the nicest beach and the most amazing bungalows on the Island. The rooms are immaculate and cavernous with the best appointed bathroom we have seen in a beach bungalow (see pictures).
The Big Easy is run by Noodeng and Paul who are fantastic hosts and make you feel really welcome. Noodeng is in charge of the restaurant and her food is the best we have tasted. If you stay you have to try the Laab and the Papya Salad.
The Big Easy is located on the best side of the Island as the resorts on the other side get battered by strong winds and choppy seas.
We will definitely return to Koh Mak and the Big Easy as it is probably one of the last unspoilt Thai Islands.
