“Just breathtaking !”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit and not our last. Don't expect much action. Instead you will be greeted with a relaxed atmosphere, great staff, good food and superb rooms. Scooter recommended to explore the other marvels of this island.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Kayaking up the river to your own private beach, the short hike to the waterfall when no one else was around, the fireflies (beautiful), the great food, watching a movie in the lounge or playing jenga. I actually visited a little while back and have recommended this place to lots of friends and family already.

Yep, the reviews are right. Man, thailand keeps surprising me. I've lived here for 7 months and been to a number of resorts - each one topping the last. I can't imagine a higher pinnacle though, which is why I'll be back very very soon. The beach just near the hotel is almost always empty and is one of the nicest beaches in the world. The island itself is amazing enough, but the quiet location of Baan Makok enhances the experience. One evening we jumped in to the water to play with the phosphorescence with one of the staff. He saw that we were reticent to jump in to the pitch black water and so he jumped in first to "demonstrate". You could tell he kinda wanted to any way. Those are the kind of experiences you'll have with the staff. Simply amazing spot...

Bann Makok is a really charming getaway, far from the hustle and bustle of the majority
of other Thai destinations. Attention to detail is evident throughout the venue, with subtle charms wherever you look. Excellent staff, like a small friendly family, would definitely return.

Absolutely loved our stay here! Rooms, food, staff - everything was lovely. Only downside is that any other restaurant is a moped ride or a kayak ride away, also the beach is a kayak ride away but that just called for a nice daily small exercise

For me, this is the place of the paradise. May be lost in paradise? Well in the evening, you stay there, enjoy the food and the very friendly service.
What I enjoyed most, is to live like the local people do, on the water, wooden house, open bathroom. This is a nice place to relax, on the sun, on the shadow. We had room 7, it's called the fan room, nevertheless there was a huge airco availalble. However the nights were cool, there was no need of airco. The people lighted up a candle with aroma oil in the evening, so we slept with open windows and had no moscitos. We watched the stars at night, heard the fishes springing - great experience. During the day you take a kajak and row down the canal for about 500m and reach a small beach full of coconut trees. A beach you usually only see on pictures, however there it's real. Water was marvelous, clear and warm. In the eveing we enjoyed swimming in the cooler water of the canal.
To explore the island you can get a driver or hire a motobike. There are interesting fisher villages and spots to visit.
The poeple of Bann Makok are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: room 7 is not as big as other rooms, however has a separate balcony, fully private

Bann Makok would have to be one of the most unique and pleasant places that I have ever stayed. I really liked the location in the mangrove as is was so quiet and peaceful with none of the 'noise' that comes with a regular hotel or guesthouse. There was some quiet music at meal times but the rest of the place was quiet. The only real noise was that of the passing boats. We were in Room #2 (it was a little cheaper) and it was very pleasant even though we didn't have a place to sit outside. However it's very close to the lounge area which was a good place to relax. It does have a 'dip bath' area off the bathroom and that was a great way to bathe in the afternoon - it would be a bit cool at night. We found the food and drinks reasonable in price and a good variety with a willingness to adapt to food preferences. There are mosquitoes in the evening for about an hour but with prevention they were not a problem. We had more problem with sandflies in the evening on the beach. The beach was quiet and with very few people - lovely fine sand and clear water. Mostly people used the kayaks to get to the beach, some swam but for older 'mamas' like me they were happy to take you by boat and come back and pick up. If you want a place that is close to night life and action this is not for you. It is isolated but that was part of its charm for us. There is a massage service but it seems as with anywhere its the luck of the draw as to how good it is - I have had a lot better. It 's not a place for small children as everything is very open and its built above the water. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating. I could highly recommend Bann Makok for those wanting a quiet retreat from the outside world...........

Room Tip: I think that Rooms 5, 6, 7 & 8 would have to be the prime locations as they all have a verndah a...
