Big Easy
Ranked #9 of 15 Hotels in Ko Mak
Reviewed 18 February 2013

it is rarely you stay in a place that you simply do not want to leave. The Big Easy is undoubtedly the highlight of Koh Mac. We checked out most of the places while we were there and vothing compares to what Paul and his team have ceated. Located at the end of the beach means that you have privacy while still being able to enjoy the spectacular views. Excellent accommodation combined with great food and exceptional service is hard to find. The Big Easy team provide great service with never-ending smiles. We can't wait to go back.

Stayed there for 6 nights, originally we were booked somewhere else that was not satisfactory. Paul, his wife and all the family are the best hosts you could wish for. The bungalows are beautiful, lovely atmosphere never over crowded or noisy. I would, and have recommended this to family and friends. There is nothing negative to say about this place, it has everything that anybody could possible want and more. Keep up the good work, we hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Room Tip: All the bungalows are great but prop No1 would be the best cos it is the closest to the beach, but t...

When we came to Koh Mak we had already booked another resort. But we didn't like it. So we visited more than 15 resorts all over the lovely little island. We fell in love at first sight with Big Easy Resort and decide to stay some days. After some days with the very warm and friendly family we couldn't imagine going anywhere else. We stayed 8 more days til leaving for going home.

Room Tip: all rooms are the same size.

Spent 3 days at this wonderful resort between christmas and new year. We found everything we dreamt about when it comes to holidays in Thailand. The bungalows are beautiful designed and the porch is the place to stay at sunset and sundown! The restaurant is Home away from Home - cosy and lively but never noisy. The food is good and the hosts are awesome. Our children cried when we left for Bangkok. We will definately be back!

The beach was so beautiful - Walk to the right and you will find paradise!

We had originally booked 3 nights at this place as it was a splurge compared to the more budget places we had been staying at in Thailand. We had a bit of a wait at the beginning with the pickup as there were too many people to fit in the truck, so we had to wait for Paul to come back a second time to pick us up from the pier. The bungalows themselves were absolutely gorgeous, very spacious with high ceilings and beautiful furniture. One of the reasons we booked this place was the fact that it had wifi and AC as we had an important call to make on skype. Unfortunately the power ended up being off about half of the first day which they told us was normal. Therefore there was no wifi and also no AC, making our room stifling hot most of the time as we were not able to get a good breeze in through the windows. We felt a bit ripped off as we were paying for these extras. The meals were also nice but a bit pricey compared to other places in Thailand. We were also not very impressed with the beach that had only 3-4 sunbeds and was a bit rough. The next day we decided to move to another place down the road, although the bungalows weren't as nice it had a nicer beach and was only 1/4 of the price.

Me and my partner had been travelling around Thailand and thought that the last week of our stay we should be somewhere relaxing, paul was very helpful from the very start, he arranged for us to be picked up from Bangkok and dropped off at the pier. When we arrived at koh mak paul was already there to greet us and had transport to the big easy.
There are 6 bungalows and we had number 4 the bungalow was very spacious and fully air conditioned & clean had great views onto the sea, the rooms were cleaned everyday.
Also would like to say a big thank you to the staff they were fantastic so friendly and helpful anything you wanted the would try their best to get for you, the food was the best on the island I loved the Thai style spare ribs and the lime shake. I was so relaxed and very pleased with the staff and food I have already booked for next year, I have and will keep recommending big easy to friends and family! Again a big thank you to big easy and staff see you next year!!!

Room Tip: Ask for bungalow 1 best view!
