Yataa Resort

Comfy but with some kinks

What we say: 3.5 stars

Formerly the reputable Sukorn Beach Bungalows, the island’s largest resort was bought out by a group from Trat province in 2014 and appears to be expanding. Next to the island’s only swimming pool, wood-and-cement hexagonal cottages with green roofs had been recently added at research time and come with hardwood floors, wide glass windows, LCD TVs, mini-fridges and great terraces with direct sea views. A handful of similarly equipped rooms were built as more straightforward bungalows nearby, and there appeared to be plenty of these to go around -- if you can afford them. The cheapest rooms are in attached buildings towards the back of the grounds and are comfortable enough, with air-con, fan, fridge, TV and coffee/tea facilities, but lacking character. The pick of the bunch still might be the older wooden cottages with large terraces set up under casuarina trees within steps of the sand and a massage sala. All rates include breakfast and you can rent kayaks, bicycles and motorbikes; we also saw some jetskis, which look really out of place on Sukorn. The staff were friendly enough but a couple of guests told us that they were quite disorganised. They also charge considerably more than other resorts for tours and transfers, and children under seven are not allowed to stay here.
