Koh Kood Beach Resort

Reviewed 8 April 2013

Our third visit, which says it all. Five hours by road from Bangkok (or 1 hour with Bangkok Air to Trat) and then a 2 hour ferry trip is all worthwhile when you arrive at the totally unspoiled island of Koh Kood, just off the Thai / Cambodia mainland. Manager Dom has already arranged to pick you up at the ferry, good job, there are no buses,or taxis.
The resort is kept immaculate and the staff are so naturally friendly that they feel like friends for life. Accommodation is in Thai or Bali style bungalows that are clean and generous enough in size, bathroom is open to the stars but you soon get used to and enjoy it. Dining room is open sided overlooking the Bay, meals and snacks whilst not fine cuisine are as good as Mum cooks, with a a good choice of Thai and Western. It is located right on a lovely sandy beach and there is also a super infinity pool overlooking the sea. Free kayaks, beach balls etc.
The island is small and most people are happy with a one week stay although we just chilled for four weeks..

Room Tip: Keep a secret ?, treat yourself to the Sunset suite on the hilltop. Kitchen, superb lounge/dining, l...

Getting up at 5 am followed by 4 hours drive and 1 1/2 hour by boat, it just should be good - and it was. Arrived at the beautiful located resort and well received by polite staff made the efforts worth. The rooms are nice and comfortable with a open natural bathroom which just fits very much in to the natural surroundings. A really great thing is that the free space are kept at the resort and the the buildings fits well in with the environment what many resort owners forget in their hunt of max capacity. Food is great and very reasonable and drinks are also priced very low, making it easy to decide on another one. Wish the cocktail Happy Hour started a little earlier.

Room Tip: If traveling with children chose the jacuzzi rooms, they love it and makes it easy for you to keep a...

End of November, I stayed three nights in a Bali house.

I sent an e-mail to give them our arrival time at the pier and they sent someone to pick me up when I arrived and when I was leaving, they drove me back to the pier and waited with me the speedboat which has 25 minutes delay to go to Koh Chang.

I came from Koh Mak and it took only 25 minutes by Bang Tao speedboat to get here. When I left, I took the Kai Bae speedboat of 11 am to go to Koh Chang (Klong Prao Beach) with a stop at Kok Mak, Ko Wai. Otherwise, you can take the Bang Tao speedboat of 9 am or noon to go to Koh Chang (Bang Tao) (same price : 900 baths/person). The journey took 1 h 25 and the transfer from the pier to your resort in Koh Chang is included in the price. You can book your speedboat ticket at the reception of the resort.

The furniture of the bedroom is a bit old fashioned but you have a nice outdoor bathroom with a shower gel and a shampoo dispenser. The floor is made of wood and the terrace has a coconut palm in the middle. The room is equipped with a TV a DVD player, a safe and a minibar.

I really appreciated the natural surroundings of this resort with their beautiful garden with their coconut palms. They have a lot of furniture in wood. It is the first time that I can see such maintenance of the wood in a hotel (I appreciate the wood very much).

If you don't rent a motor bike, you depend of the hotel for everything because there are almost no shops or restaurants in the near surroundings. The restaurant is very good but expensive for Thailand: 150 baths for a pad Thai, but keep in mind that you are on a small island.

The breakfast buffet is consisting of egg station, salad, banana, watermelon, pineapple, fresh juice, water, potato, ham, bacon, pancakes and vegetables (depending of the day: tomato, onion, etc.).

The infinity pool is very beautiful. There are 16 sunbeds with a mat and 10 sunbeds next to the beach. This is small beach and not one of the best to relax.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can borrow DVD, mountain bikes, kayak with a deposit. On 28th November, they drove 8 guests for free to the Loi Krathong Feast (light feast which takes place once a year).

You can snorkel from the beach and you can even have a test dive in the swimming pool (for free) with Paradise Divers.

WiFi is available for free only at the restaurant and there is also a PC should you may use to check yours mails.

You have to pay the totality of your stay when you make your reservation and the hotel charge you 3,5 % for the Visa payment (also when you pay your bill at end of your stay). As this is a small hotel, don’t forget to book at least 4 months in advance for the peak season (they have only 8 Bali houses. There are other bedrooms available but you have to share the terrace with a second bedroom).

I will recommend this resort.

There is really nothing to complain about. Koh Kood Resort had all the things a resort should have. It was free to borrow kayaks, snorkling equipments, breakfast, wifi (a little bit unstable) and towels to use in the resort area. The food was good, but after some days I got quite bored of the menu.

Borrowing a motor bike and ride around the island is very recommendable. We did that 4 of the days we stayed here, and it was awesome. The resort do not have a beach to lie on, but it wasn´t far away (at least with a bike) to the nearest beach. The beaches on the island were unbeliveable!

Koh Kood Beach resort is idyllic! It has a big dining room overlooking the beach with gently waving palm trees much in evidence. The A frame rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy. The outdoor bathroom is fun - although it did not rain while we were there. The staff members were fantastic - couldn't do enough for us and shared their lovely sense of humour. The food was fantastic and the buffet breakfast a surprise given the fact the resort is so small. It is a pity the island of Koh Kood is so hard to get to - it took most of the day.

Room Tip: The A frame rooms all have pool and ocean views.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend on a romantic holiday.

We loved every second of it, the Bali Bungalow was very nice to stay in, and we loved the idea of the toilet being outside (but still private).

The food at the restaurant was very good (my girlfriend is a chef so quite picky with the food).

The people working at the hotel very helpfull, they even arranged a tour around the island, even though we were only us to going on it.

I would love to come back some day.

They even have a huge collection of DVD's if you care to watch them.

I never met any such unkind and unfriendy receptionist/manager. He is just the one to chase away, to fire immediately. No "hello" or "how are you". He might be busy with his laptop. The other/his girl friend is doing her make-up or polishing her nails. Of course you as a customer are disturbing...! The only one who can speak English properly is Sano, who will be helpful if needed.
The rooms are ok. Bali rooms are single bungalows with open bathrooms (I like, you can see the sky), somehow clean. The other Thai houses are semi detached, so you will have neighbours very close. Stay away from family house. If it's raining you will have an indoor pool..!!
The whole is resort is in a good state, the beach very small, but with a huge pool. Food is limited!

Room Tip: take the Bali Nrs 7 or 8 (best view to sea)

Dear Traveller,

Thank you for your feedback in regards to your stay with us. We are happy that you overall liked our premise, bungalows and great pool area. The aim was and still is to operate a resort that fits into the natural surroundings including the benefit of being able to look at the sky while taking a shower or enjoying sea view from the spacious terraces (and Jacuzzis) surrounding the Thai Twin houses.

We are however sorry that you had the experience of unfriendly receptionist and person in charge at the moment (our managers were in Bangkok at the time of your stay) since all of our staff normally receives great praise and is very well liked by guests. The ambience at the resort is very laidback and invites all guests to feel at home, which you may have experienced a bit too much at the time of your stay.
And you are right that some staff speaks limited English, however there will always be a person present who speaks English, in your case Sano, who will be happy to aid in any way possible to overcome language issues, should they be experienced.

Lastly, in regards to our family house we have luckily not had flooded pool-like conditions inside and we constantly maintain during the year. Furthermore, all bungalows and houses are repaired and upgraded every year in the low season (September-November). This has also been carried through in 2012 and hence all accommodation stands fresh and free of any leaks that may have been experienced.

Once again thank you very much for your feedback, which aids us in constantly improving our premise and service to our guests. Moreover, we hope you had some nice days at beautiful Koh Kood island.

On behalf of all staff at Koh Kood Beach Resort and Visit Beyond,
Berit Bonde
