Koh Mak Lazy Day Resort is in a peaceful spot at the southeastern end of Ao Kao Beach, facing south on Koh Mak.
Until a couple of years ago this was a run down hut resort for backpackers. However, the old huts have gone and been replaced with well appointed, airconditioned concrete bungalows.
The layout of the resort is a bit strange, it doesn’t seem to have been planned, with bungalows built on a seemingly ad-hoc basis and the restaurant located right at the back of the resort. ( On the plus side this means that there is plenty of landscaped garden area for guests to sunbathe on or children to play in. ) This lack of planning can easily be seen in the photo on the left. The steps go up to the side door to the bungalow. So if you are sitting on the balcony and want to go to the beach you have to walk through the room first. Or jump down from the balcony onto the grass.
The beach is very quiet and from it you will get great sunset views. Being away from other resorts does mean that it is a bit of a trek to get to the busier beach areas for a night out but if you want a quiet location with a few local restaurants on the roadside 10 minutes walk away then its a nice spot.
If you want something cheaper than Makathanee Resort or like the peace and quiet of Koh Mak Resort but prefer somewhere smaller scale then take a look. The largest bungalows – 56sqm, are only 2,600 Baht/night at any time during High Season – making them some of the best value beachfront acommodation on the island.
Room Rates for 2011-12: From around 2,200 Baht High Season
