Ko Mun Nork

The blip of an island of Ko Mun Nork rarely finds itself on the itinerary of roving backpackers and travellers -- partly due to the cost of the resort, but also because it can only be visited as a part of an organised trip.

Ask many Bangkok residents though and you'll quickly hear some of the rave reviews Ko Mun Nork receives -- both as a romantic weekend getaway, but also for the occasional parties thrown on the island -- parties which are very much invite only.

Private label raves and romantic weddings aside, Ko Mun Nork is certainly worth consideration -- particularly on weekdays when you could well have the entire island to yourself.

There's just the single place to stay -- the imaginatively named Ko Mun Nok Resort. Unfortunately the digs are not quite up to the standard of the island, and, as neither is the food, this is a place you come to for the beach and the beach alone.

As far as pastimes go, there's the beach, the water and the salas -- that's about it! Yoga enthusiasts will be more than satisfied with some of the platforms dotted about, and there's apparently some ok snorkelling -- we never managed to leave our sala.

It's odd really that the rooms are so average, as it is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the beach salas and private wooden piers that jut out towards the water. Perhaps they exhausted all their creative juices before they got to the rooms -- and certainly before they got to the menu!

That said, come here knowing the digs are not fab, pack some slabs of cheese, a few bottles of wine and a book or three and you've got all the makings of a sleepy weekend away.
