Friendly and secluded

What we say: 4.5 stars

Set on the far west side of Ao Kao in a secluded spot with an excellent beach, the Big Easy is one of our favourite midrange options on Ko Maak. The water here is shallow near the sand, making this a great spot for families with small kids, but gets deeper as you go further out. The intimate resort has six beautiful wooden villas with a romantic feel and direct sea views. Rooms are impeccably clean and very spacious, with polished hardwood floors, sumptuous linens on soft beds, tasteful art, several windows and huge bathrooms with stone features and rain showers. Rattan hammocks and benches are found on the large front porches -- perfect for an early evening drink. The only disadvantage here is a lack of trees for shade, though it's the same deal at most other spots on Ao Kao. A very personable English/Thai couple runs the place, and their service is reported to be outstanding. The Thai half of this duo worked as a chef in London for 20 years, ensuring a quality mix of Thai and Western food in the breezy restaurant.
