Koh Kood Resort

Koh Kood Resort

Solid midranger

More on Ko Kut

Koh Kood Resort sits in the northern corner of Bang Bao Bay and the midrange rooms and beachfront area offer more style than you might expect given the generic name.

Travelfish says:

The freestanding wooden bungalows are quite good for the money but bathrooms in some rooms have an odd configuration where you have to walk through a low-ceilinged area with the feel of a dank sauna to reach the shower, and the toilet is off in another room in the opposite direction. No, we have no idea what they were thinking.

In other respects we’ve found the rooms spacious with high ceilings and a classic island design employing thatch ceilings, concertina doors, hammocks on front decks and mosquito nets. The pricier rooms get you a less tunnel-like brushed concrete bathroom with rain shower, sun window and emerald tiling. Flatscreen TV, free WiFi and fridge come standard. We like how the resort offers a fan-only option (they just take away the air-con remote), and the bungalows are well positioned to catch the breeze.

But the best part is an extensive set of pavilions and decks stacked with lounge chairs near a short seawall—go ahead and stroll out on the pier for an “I’m in paradise” selfie. The staffers we last encountered in the large restaurant and reception area seemed stylish, patient and more than willing to help.

The sand out front vanishes at high tide but you can always walk a couple of hundred metres over to the main stretch of Bang Bao Beach. On the way you’ll pass Koh Kood Resort’s neighbour, The Beach Natural Resort, which has very similar bungalows for considerably more cash as well as a few high-end villas fetching 8,000 baht or more.
