“Makes you want to stay forever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

What an amazing place. Koh Mak is a beautiful, relaxed island, not as overrun as Koh Chang. We stayed three weeks at Thaidaho Vista and enjoyed every single day. The view from the resort is breathtaking. Three different beaches are in walking distance, and Cat and Allen can give helpful tips for biking, hiking, dining and other activities (also for Bangkok). Don't miss to start your day with the reasonable priced, delicious tailor-made breakfast.
We cannot recommend this place enough for a calm, quiet, beautiful Thailand island experience.

Room Tip: Choose the Vista room for the most amazing view in Thailand you will get from lying in bed.

I cannot recommend Thaidaho Vista Resort enough. My boyfriend and I stayed there for 10 days over the holiday period and had a wonderful time with Allen and Kat, easily the most hospitable people we met on our trip. And we've been traveling for 10 months.
Allen was incredibly considerate, giving us great instructions on how to get there (and avoid getting scammed) and took us under his wing the moment we arrive. The room was impeccable, the view stunning, and the breakfasts fantastic. Not to mention that Kat does the best coffee on the island.
They have a good wifi connection too, and lots of chilled out spaces around the property. There's also a shared kitchen facility, complete with fridge and microwave that's put to guests' use.
Koh Mak is a small island and the resort is smack in the middle, up on a hill. It's a really short walk to beaches on both sides. Having stayed on a beach hut in Koh Mak in the past, I'd say that it's much nicer at Thaidaho - you have the view, tranquility and easier access to beaches further away.
One last note, we booked our Thai beach holiday a little on the late side and couldn't find anything in our price range, as prices were incredibly inflated over Christmas and NY. It was such a relief to stumble on Thaidaho - really honest prices with 5 star service and hospitality.

We were amazed by the hilltop views from the Thaidaho Vista! They were in a word breathtaking. Our hosts were incredibly gracious and inviting. Allen met us upon our arrival and gave us a map and explained the lay of the land. We headed straight to the beach and had a great (uncrowded) lounge. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short for personal reasons and we could only stay one night out of the original three we booked, but wish we could have stayed many more. Although we only had a day there Koh Mak is our favorite beach destination in all of Thailand so far (we've been to Krabi, Koh Chang, & Koh Samet) and if fate has it, we hope to get back to enjoy Thaidaho Vista again. We highly recommend this accomodation as it is a great value.

Room Tip: Lying in bed in our room you also got to look out onto the spectacular view!
