Flashpacker by the sea
Koh Kood Ngam Kho Resort is pushing things by calling itself a resort, but this old-style bungalow joint wedged between Dusita Resort and the southern headland offers sold wood and thatch bungalows that are, for Koh Kood, quite fair value.
All bungalows come with hammocks on their verandas and just about all have a view to some extent. They're thoughtfully designed and are fully screened in which is a great asset as the mosquitoes around here are savage. All are fan-cooled and the bungalows are available either with a private cold-water bathroom or with shared facilities. The restaurant is excellent, serving enormous portions, and the Thai food is very good. WiFi is advertised but, as with most places on the island, is too slow or patchy for much actual use. The beach is mudflats at low tide and not all that desirable at high tide either, but two minutes' walk north takes you to the front of Dusita where the beach is far better. For the money, this is solid Ko Kut value. Recommended.
