We read many reviews of Away Koh Khut on Tripadvisors before booking and saw that the opinions ranged from the very best to the mediocre, so we were unsure what to expect. The basic questions, as always, are if the places meet our expectations and give us value for money. We were looking for and expected to find a good, basic resort with all necessary facilities, clean rooms, decent food, crystal water and the famous Thai smiles. We did not look for a posh and trendy show off place. This resort fully met these expectations.
Sure, the place is not perfect; the beach is really quite small and unattractive but about 150 ft away (swim or borrow a kayak) is a very nice beach that all our colleague guests used. The beach beds on Away´s small beach were few and some guests always lack manners and occupy “their” chairs the entire day, even when they are not there. The management may consider some more chairs.
Our room (Ocean facing deluxe bungalow) was very good. Maybe some paint could have been used but really charming and well working. Nice view to the ocean and a gentle breeze all day. Room service was good – with the smile. Bathroom not the latest model but clean with water heater (working from 6 pm to 8 am to save power).
The restaurant will not win a Michelin star any time soon but it was definitely acceptable and fairly reasonably priced. The famous smile was definitely there. Language is not big issue and neither the speed and service.
The internet works well in the lobby and the restaurant but not in the rooms but then they have not advertised anything else.
A recommendable resort but we suggest you carefully consider your expectations before booking.
