What we say: 4.5 stars

Set on the southern bank of Khlong Yai Ki, Bann Makok absolutely charmed us -- we showed up planning just to do an inspection and promptly booked a stay for the next night. The eclectic rooms are all made from recycled wood and each is unique. They're oversized, lovingly decorated and well furnished. Each room has a different aspect, with the cheaper ones looking back over the mangroves and the premium ones overlooking the river. No two things are the same, with different beds, bathrooms (the tub in our room was big enough for three!) and other features. There's also an open-air dining room and a separate lounge area with mishmashed furniture and hammocks and cushions, with what looked to be a massage sala upstairs. There are kayaks tied up at front should you wish to go paddling to the beach or the waterfall but a lot of the charm of this place is finding a comfortable spot and just really chilling out. Minor gripes were insufficient bedside lighting in our room and the service in the restaurant could be very slow but overall we loved it. If you're a couple looking for a romantic few nights away, we couldn't recommend here highly enough. One other point: while all the rooms have air-con, it's optional and if all guests skip it, they leave the generator off at night -- this could be made clearer on check-in as the hum of the generator did wake us up on a couple of occasions through the night. In high season reservations are essential.
