Reborn under the name Horizon after its first incarnation as Hin Dard Resort, this place brings a heightened sense of style and service to a very pretty setting on the headland overlooking Ao Ngam Kho’s far southern end.

Covering both sides of a hill filled with flowers and rocks tumbling down to a point where we’ve heard good reports about the snorkeling off shore, Horizon’s bungalows are made of logs with glass-paned concertina doors, or concrete painted orange and fronted by smaller windows. We inspected the latter and found it clean with a wall mural of blue waves matching the curtains.

Each of the freestanding bungalows is equipped with TV, fridge, air-con and hot water in bathroom built half-open to the air at the rear. We like how they were built fairly far apart and facing in different directions with palms and bushes giving some of the log porches an extra measure of privacy.

The orange concrete “breeze” bungalows face north towards the back of neighbouring Ngam Kho Resort, and while these do afford sea views, we’d opt for a log-walled edition facing west on the other side of the hill. This is also where you’ll find the large open-sided restaurant and lounge set atop the hill, and also affording a sunset view.

What a view!

The young Thai man who showed us around had a good attitude and seemed really eager to help—he lived up to a “happy staff” sign which also mentioned that ice cream is available at the bar. The European-managed resort offers yoga classes and snorkeling gear to go with shared seaside decks and arguably the best-located massage sala on Ko Kut.

In front of Horizon you’ll find only rocky coastline—head north past Ngam Kho Resort and Dusita to find a lovely beach. While we like Horizon for couples, Dusita is probably a better choice for families. Also worth a look in this price range is Koh Kood Resort set on a shady hill overlooking Ao Bang Bao.
