Koh kood is wild, green and free of mainstream tourism, which worth something in Thailand. Unfortunately, and thats really the big miss, island is very dirty. Garbage, plastic bottles and all kinds of thrown away things lay down in almost every corner of the island. Is it a low season problem or a new issue, I dont know, but what I've seen has shocked me. If you feel like you want to give it a try, well, here's what you need to know about KK Beach Resort: there's not much around the hotel so best plan is to rent a bike and discover the island. Hotel's garden is very nice. The tiny beach was so dirty we prefered to relax at the pool. Seeing what was laying down on the sand, it was absolutely out of question to get a sea bath. Pool is great but staff spends a big part of the day cutting the grass in the garden. Understandable, but not really relaxing.
Balihouse style, minimum comfort but enough. Bed's a bit hard, bathroom is fun, but not so much when it rains. And not so much when its actually the favorite playground of small ants. Inside, Hide your food in the fridge. But that undoubtly works for all hotels on the island.
Wonderful. Thai food is perfectly executed at affordable prices. Crabs or lobsters are available on demand and staff provides great cooking recommendations. Breakfast is satisfying, offering a few options like eggs w sausage , (great) pancakes, fresh fruits and bread.
Very nice and attentive. A real highlight!
Comfort is not top notch but hey, thats Koh kood, not Koh Samui or Phuket. And at the end, thats part of the free massive tourism deal also. Also, after having traveled around the island, I figured out Koh Kood beach resort is one of the nicest and best taken care of hotel out here. Hands up to the management. So thats a go for the place. However, if you're expecting Koh Kood to look like an almost untouched virgin island, like its shown through online travel pictures, you might want to look for another destination.
