We stayed in Bann Makok last November and fell in love with the place. It is literally jaw droppingly beautiful...even better than the photos! We fell in love with all the little details, there is love in every corner of this place. And I mean that. Even in the faces of the people who work there!
My boyfriend and I unfortunately suffered from a high fever when we stayed at Bann Makok. One of the cooks who is funnily enough called 'Me', upon hearing we were ill, immediately drove us to the hospital on his scooter and explained everything to the hospital staff. He was so polite and friendly. Mark, one of the waiters, also took us on a boat one night to witness the fireflies nearby. And I can't remember the waitresses name but whether we liked it or not, she always brought hot water for us to drink (as it helps sweat out the fever) even when she was not on duty. And she was right! I can honestly say that the staff at Bann Makok are genuinely lovely people. I must admit as our boat pulled off and we waved our farewells...I almost cried.
Apart from the wonderful atmosphere, Bann Makok is super peaceful. Showering outside under the stars makes you realise how amazing life can be. The food is delicious. Kayaking down to the deserted beach is such a thrill. Koh Kut the island itself is a little paradise. A real one. It's not tainted by tourism or party goers, it has that very simple, whole hearted unique appeal about it. Rent a scooter and go explore. It's definitely worth it.
There has not been a month that has gone by where the wonderful Bann Makok has not brought a smile to my face...
