Long-running Ngam Kho Resort is pushing things by calling itself a resort, but this old-style bungalow joint set between Dusita and the southern headland offers budget huts that are, for Ko Kut, quite fair value.

Some sporting walls of woven bamboo and others built of wood or brushed cement, most bungalows sit along the hillside as it stretches upwards towards Horizon Resort and out to a rocky outcrop. All come with hammocks on their verandas and nearly all bag you some sort of sea view. Kick back and enjoy some of Kut’s last-remaining seafront bungalows with fans that go for less than 1,000 baht per night, including breakfast.

There are a range of rooms to choose from.

All rooms were full for our most recent visit; previously we found the fan editions thoughtfully designed for airflow and fully screened in, which is a great asset as the mosquitoes around here are savage. Attached bathrooms with choice of cold- or hot-water shower are made of bricks with proper sinks and Western toilets.

While the resort also added some concrete air-con bungalows since our last visit, we salute the owners for maintaining simple fan-cooled huts rather than rebuilding completely for the air-con market. The owners were welcoming when we popped into their restaurant pavilion where you can order Thai food and drinks until 20:00. WiFi is advertised but we’d expect it to be patchy.

Fronting the resort is a small lawn with a few coconut trees and a narrow beach tapering to mud flats—walk two minutes north to Dusita Resort where the beach is much better. If you like the sound of Ngam Kho Resort, you also might check out Sand and Sea down in Ao Bang Bao.
