Makathanee Resort is probably the nicest of Koh Mak’s beach resorts.     It’s a good three star standard and has a range of rooms from beach bungalows to new hotel rooms that have opened in two phases over the past coupe of years.

It’s a new resort with the first 8 bungalows only opening in 2006.   Since then a pool and additional hotel rooms of varying sizes, everything from a   simple double room to pool and sea view rooms,some complete with jacuzzi and even a couple of huge family suites with two bedrooms and a living room, have all been added.

All this construction work means that you may read comments about noise being an issue for guests at the resort.   However, this is all now well in the past.

Makathanee is at the western end of Ao Kao beach and there are a dozen other   resorts within 10 minutes walk.   At the rear of the resort are an increasing number of small shops and restaurants.   The resort also has i’s own pier and runs regular speedboat services between   the island and the mainland and also to Koh Kood and Koh Chang during High Season.

Probably the best all round combination of modern, stylish, but not over fancy, beach accommodation plus long sandy beach right outside,   good views and a convenient location.

  • Just like to add that I have been to Koh Mak and Koh Kood twice in the last 18 months and yes, Makathanee is good if you want to feel like a tourist in the early era of Benidorm. It baffles me why anyone would want to travel to a relatively inaccessible island and then plonk down amidst tacky music, public conveniences and nightly bbqs. You’d need blinkers to believe you were doing a Shirley Valentine.You’ll be on the crossroads of all incoming tourists and booty boats,surrounded by a dozen resorts, “massage parlours”, ticket offices AND get instant bloody coffee for breakfast to boot. It does get better at night when the alcohol and “greyscale” distort the ambience and surroundings.New Year 2010 was AmazinG – fortunately no one was hurt but the dance of the ladyboys was abruptly halted when the jetty collapsed and one second they were there, the next, they were gone. Fortunately we had a consortium of German engineers and the bridge was re-built in record time and the show went on.
    No, avoid Maka – you can still visit the patio cafe if you must but I’d seriously avoid the place as a base….
