We spent five nights here in late January and had a fabulous time, and were touched with the care the staff showed towards guests.
Firstly, this is a very quiet and serene resort with no computers or internet, kayaks, tvs or loud bar. There are other more lively places on Koh Sukorn, but Paraside Resort has its own isolated beach on the north-west corner of the island so you only see other people if you leave the property.
Electricity only runs from 6pm to 6am and the showers have one temperature, but you don't any more than that.
We had a beachfront cabin with airconditioning for 1600 baht per night (possibly a special deal) and had to pay for all meals. The bed was comfortable with a mosquito net. We also did a one-day snorkelling trip at nearby islands for 800 baht each. We got private transfers to Trang for 1000 baht each way, 40 mins in a clean car with a good driver. The bus takes nearly three hours and involves several changes.
The snorkelling trips were led by Tony, the excellent manager who takes care of guests. He is a local from the mainland who sells salads at Trang market in the off-season and is thoughtful host whose only concern is whether guests have a good time and make the most of their holiday. He helped us book train tickets to our next destination and picked up supplies on the mainland for other guests.
The restaurant cooked great food, one particular coconut and seafood soup stood out. We had all our meals there apart from one lunch where we visited the "Little Restaurant", which also had excellent food.
The cabins were free-standing wooden structures with a front porch. There were gaps between the bathroom and outside, but in a tropical climate on a remote island why would you want to shut everything out? We shared the resort with only one other couple, but noticed a few guests from other hotels on the island dropping in on their bike ride around the island.
Overall a great place where you can sit on a beach swing or stand in the water watching the sun set between far-away islands while forgetting about where you came from.
