Koh Kood Neverland Beach Resort
While Neverland can be reached by road it can also be approached by walking around the headland from Khlong Hin -- that's what we did, and we think that is the best approach as it's a dreamy wander out of the woods, across the wooden bridge over the khlong and into their green grounds packed with coconut palms.

Sedate and low key, it felt the polar opposite to the hectic madhouse back at Khlong Hin Resort. Friendly staff showed us the rooms, which are solid offerings all with air-con and hot-water bathrooms (though bathrooms could be better). They come in two main flavours, khlong view and garden view -- go with the latter if you want to be looking onto the beach, as even though it is distant, it's the better aspect. Coconuts are still a mainstay here -- as evidenced by the netting to protect guests who are walking below the palms. Very friendly staff.
