My positive experience with this cozy resort began as early as booking stage — which u can do via the usual websites, but also directly via the resort's webpage (aopong.com). I corresponded at length with co-owner and co-manager Michal, who replied promptly to all my emails and gave me as much detailed info as I asked for. I arrived to Koh Mak on August 15, when boats dock at Ao Nid pier, which is a mere 10-minute walk from Ao Pong. At the end of the pier, u turn left, and the most amazing dirt road, covered with a lush canopy of greenery and running by the sea, leads to the resort, which, to my astonishment, turned out even much more beautiful than all the pictures I'd seen. The sea is calm as a lake and transparent. The beach is charming and quiet, and strewn with trees and hammocks. It may not be of finer sand like other beaches on the island, but at least it's free of sand flies! The bungalows are kept in very good condition and are very decently appointed. And the service is just outstanding! Co-owner and co-manager Riam is one of the nicest, friendliest, and most helpful people I've met. I came for a month and am staying for 3.5. Simply amazing!
