We rode past this sprawling resort a couple of times, writing it off as a tour group joint before finally venturing in, and we're glad we did.

The main accommodation is in a single row of lumbung-style bungalows towards the rear of the property, overlooking the lawn, the swimming pool, and the ocean beyond. They're bigger than the ones at Ao Noi and they're in better condition too, with very clean bathrooms and good sized decks. All are air-con throughout and come with flatscreen TVs and DVD players. The pool is a welcome addition -- not many places on Ko Kut have them at this price range and it's a pretty one. Perhaps they have the pool because while the waterfront area is quite wide, the beach is very small, and set towards the northern end of the resort. The on-site restaurant is large and spacious, and the staff were a helpful mob. Probably all that's missing is a bit more shade across the lawn, but we suspect they're hanging onto that for more bungalows. You're a bit of a hike from the action down on Khlong Chao, but there is a small fishing village walking distance from the resort that could serve to give enough colour to a simple beach vacation.
