“The best resort in Koh Mak'island!!”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

Last August I went to Koh Mak resort in Koh Mak ' island. It had been a very good experience but there had also some negative points in Koh Mak' island.
First of all, Koh Mak island is an island very small, you can reach every other resort and beach with the motorbike in half day.
The sea is wonderful, expectially in front of our resort because there where no rocks on the beach , instead there were a lot in all the others. Because of the low season there were few people and a lot of peace, maybe too much.
The resort is divided in two types of bungalows, one very new and expensive, the other very affordable, expecially if you book directly by yourself.The swimmingpool was very good, very clean . Also the restaurant was good and the prices were affordable.
We stayed a lot of time in the swimmingpool because the beach was full of sandflyers, which are insects under the beach thats byte you and you scratch yourself for almost 10 days!!
The massages in the hotel were the best in my life!!!

Room Tip: All the bungalows are in front of the sea, the less expensive are quite damaged but confortable

How can other people rate this place five star ? Nothing and I say nothing can pass 2 star.
The bungalow is old and dirty, we have only one towel for everything: shower, face, toilet,..
The beach in the morning can not exist because of the tide, there are very few sun bad.
The breakfast is unbelievable terrible, even the orange juice and marmalade is terrible.
Then if you still think this is a special place please go and good luck.

I booked the room from the Thai travel fair in which the voucher was for 3 days 2 nights on low season, from May - October. So We decided to book the room for the last weekend of October, hopefully the weather would be good. And we were right.

The room were nice, the staffs were excellent, especially the boy and the girl at the bar in which we fixed ourselves there day and night.

Despite the fact that it's low season and 3/4 of the guests were there for the wedding reception of the son of the resort's owner. We still had great experiences. The food was good and reasonable price.

Room Tip: Every room located direct at the beach. The Bar is at the east end and the restaurant and the pool i...

I think all the times I day dreamt about an exotic getaway to a tranquil island, I was in fact thinking of Koh Mak Resort. The rooms are located ON the beach, which means you will fall asleep to the sound of the waves in rhythmic harmony with the sound of nighttime nature, and awake to the most blissful sun and pristine ocean right outside your window. The restaurant serves magnificent meals ranging from asian to western, and the breakfast is full and hearty. After a whole day of complete and utter relaxation, having a few cocktails or beer at happy hour while watching, undoubtly, one of the most magnificent sunsets I have ever seen in the world will undoubtly make this trip worth every minute, and every penny. The price you pay will never outmatch the value you get at Koh Mak Resort, quite possibly the closest thing to heaven on earth. (-Tairo)

Room Tip: The bungalows with fan on the beach are amazing. Do mind that due to its proximity to nature, friend...

I've had the opportunity of visiting different hospitality establishments in different parts of the world. There are a few of them that have an extra special element of magic; that is the case of Koh Mak resort. My girlfriend and I stayed there in mid October, initially for 4 days and ended up staying for almost two weeks. The island itself, virgin, unpaved, without billboards or shopping centers is unique. Koh Mak resort just makes it even better, excellent, perfect. The service is top of the line, they make you feel at ease, relaxed and with a huge smile on their faces at all times. The resort is owned by a family, all of them hard workers with a perfect sense of hospitality, cleanliness and tasteful, beautiful decorated dishes. The fact that they keep adding new bungalows, restaurants, a new front desk around the pool area, only and only shows how their business is growing for the benefit of all of us visitors. Thank you Koh Mak resort for making our stay beyond memorable. We very much look forward to visiting you again in the near future.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, steps from the ocean!

Unfortunately we were here at the low season,at the time that not many guests were there.Positive for us is not too crowdy but the negative thing is not enough attention from the resort as should be the same standard.
Anyway we found that Koh Mak Resort is located in a very good area,quiet,service smile,good cook and the foods taste fantastic with great service in the restaurent that full of styling and warm regards.
we have anyway decided to book again for count-down celebration,unfortunately the resort is fully booked........therefore,we are looking forward to visit Koh Mak Resort again as soon as possible.

We have a standard bungalow right by the sea. Water in front of the hotel is so clear and excellent place to swim if you are not afraid of sea cucumbers as you can see them lying around through very clear water. Waves are much more tender compare to koh Chang. The resort has excellent restaurant. Beware of mosquitoes.

Room Tip: Sea front rooms are better.
