This was my second trip to Koh Kood, and our plan was to go there for a peaceful beach holiday. We booked two cottages at Koh Kood Holiday resort, but after booking the rooms we wanted to change the dates and arrive one day earlier. On the phone, the owner said that there is no problem. However, after arriving at Koh Kood Holiday, we were told that there is no place for us there for the first night and we need to go to the owner's "sister place". That's how after a dusty and bumpy 20 minutes ride we ended up in front of For Rest.
There was no beach, only a pier for fishing boats. The neighborhood was colorful but there was garbage around. While, in other circumstances I might liked the idea of "home stay" with the local fisherman this was not the case as I had guests with me that traveled across the globe to enjoy the peaceful Koh Kood beaches.
We immediately booked room at one of the resorts we spotted during the boat ride from Trang "Ao Noi" (great experience) and asked the driver to take us there (for which he wanted to charge us BHT 400).
So, despite the fact that we didn't stay there, based on the location I wouldn't recommend For Rest for a beach holiday. Also, considering the unprofessional conduct of Koh Kood Holiday owner (basically we ended up wasting a whole afternoon traveling across the island in search for a place to stay due to his misinformation) I would never book a room at Koh Kood Holiday either.
