Booked 2 nights but only had 1 night here after an overbooking issue which we found out when we arrived from the ferry. so not the greatest start as the resort we were put in for the first night had no restaurant available. The room we had at Ao Pong was a budget bungalow and to be honest, for the...

Nice enough rooms, though some basic maintenance could be implemented so that taps and shower head do not touch the sink or face the bathroom wall. My partner and I slept very well here and it is secluded and peaceful. It's not the best beach, especially if you enjoy a morning swim without bashing your legs on sharp rocks, but...

Ko Mak is quiet and this would be the most serene place on the island. It is a few minutes walk from Ao Nid pier and located on a private beach, this is the fuss-free place where you can chillax all day, all night long. Bike rentals, meals and snorkeling equipments are available.

we have been at AoPong twice already. The first stay in 2014 was more three weeks, second stay in 2016, also more three weeks. What is the best in AoPong, is its location. It is isolated and very quiet resort. Ms. Riam (owner) is a great cook, speaks English very well, and we like to talk with her. During our...

Very nice resort in Koh Mak, a little bit "far" from the little road where other restaurants are, but you need transport to move in the island (moto or bike). I was moving by bike everyday, no problem at all! The bungalows are in the same beach. nice snorkeling, beautiful views. Calm & peace. The owners are great people, they...

This was one of the most peaceful places I've ever stayed. The waves and the birds and the giant butterflies....just sitting on the deck was a pleasure. We rented bicycles and enjoyed riding around the island. The remote location was not a problem at all. We stayed in one of the older units with a/c, and it was worth the...

This is a fantastic place, especially the brand new bungalows they added recently. A bit far from anything else on the island, but you'll need a moped anyway. It has a lovely little beach and the people who run it are very friendly.

“All rooms face east, so you can enjoy the sunrise, and they all face the beach. Eco Bungalow is the most basic and the only one that's at beach level rather than a couple meters high.”
