It is a shame that this resort is not quite properly taken care of.
It is surrounded by stunning lush gardens, right on the beautiful long & empty beach.
Here comes the twitch - it is empty because it is infested with sand flies, just like all the other beaches on Koh Mak.
The beauty of the island, completely empty roads "born" for moped rides, excellent food and postcard-like sunsets are unique.
Before stepping out of your bungalow, "weapon" yourself with coconut oil and high-level of DEET spray to avoid being massacred by the sand flies and mosquitoes.
They do fumigate the beach, but it does not help at all, since they do not spray the nearby greenery.
Go for Superior Beachfront bungalows (after the pool) since the Comfort ones are shabby and old. Btw, all of the bungalows have moldy smell.
We first book a Comfort one, but kind reception manager upgraded us to the Superior Beachfront.
There are also brand new Twin deluxe ones (and they don't have ever-present moldy smell) but they are less "original" or Thai-looking, and there are not right on the beach as the Superior ones.
The entire premises, especially next to the kitchen, massage terrace and the swimming pool are not properly cleaned.
