It's set on stilts over water and surrounded in part by mangroves. We arrived with high expectations thanks to their website but the resort really fails to deliver on most counts. Staff while friendly enough were glued to the TV most of the time and the restaurant is only open limited hours through the day. The beach out front was least well-kept of all the beaches we saw on Ko Kut with flotsam, a broken swing and tatty hammocks. The rooms themselves are well sized, but those facing the boardwalk are very exposed to pedestrian traffic and privacy minded guests will keep the curtains closed. Bathroom was very rough around the edges. On the upside the air-con is frosty. Another issue is one of the neighbouring houses played extremely loud music for much of the day. All this said, the price is (by Ko Kut standards) reasonable, but they would be well advised to tone down their website to deliver a more realistic description of what For Rest is like. As the other two hotels on Ao Phrao are primarily for Russian tour groups, this is the best of an average bunch.
