Kho Nok Homestay

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

The last trace of civilisation on the bumpy dirt road that skirts the peninsula’s east coast, this charming homestay is run by a family that have been on Ko Chang for generations.

They cater mainly to Thai weekenders, but one of the family members speaks a little English and it’s such a beautiful spot that we had to include it. Relying on simple shared bathroom facilities, simple white cottages with green trim are perched on stilts over the bay’s clear teal water and have a lush palm-filled hill as a backdrop. At high tide, you can dive straight from your porch into the sea. Inside, the rooms have nothing more than a thin, firm mattress on the floor, a fan and several windows. A handful of similarly rustic family bungalows are set back on a lawn and have private bathrooms. The nightly rate includes three home-cooked meals. If it’s not too busy, guests can receive casual cooking lessons for free. Meals are served in a large stilted open-air restaurant with long wood tables and stunning views over the bay. A few kayaks are available, but you’ll probably want a motorbike as the location is rather remote.
