The cabanas at Rest Sea lack views due to the long and narrow layout of the property, but if you don’t mind that, the modern rooms bring a level of comfort, style and privacy that’s otherwise non-existent in southern Ko Kut.

When first walking down to this end of Khlong Phrao Beach we found it odd how Rest Sea’s villas were squeezed into a long but very narrow parcel of land, with only a coconut grove backing a lengthy stretch of beachfront next door. Given the way that this line was drawn and the fact that Rest Sea itself was just built around 2016, we’d guess that other new resorts might be constructed on parts of that neighbouring beachfront land in the not-too-distant future.

Not a bad spot for a splash.

For now, Rest Sea’s placement means that while the resort itself has only a small beachfront, no other resorts are found nearby apart from the tiny Gumm Lonely Club set just back along the canal. Again, this may change, but at time of writing it results in a private and exceptionally quiet atmosphere.

The privacy quality extends into the villas, each separated by tall bamboo fences with a tunnel-like walkway running between two rows of rooms. Each villa has wide glass doors opening to patios with cushioned swings set under glass-roofed awnings, and the top-end editions come with private plunge pools. The rooms are best suited to couples looking for a romantic getaway.

Smart modern rooms.

Bamboo features continue in the interiors with a minimalist style accented by indigo fabrics. Bathrooms sport rain showers, sunroofs and ceramic basin sinks. You also get a widescreen TV, WiFi, desk, daybed, minibar, coffee/tea facilities and woven rattan slippers.

Up along the beachfront stretches a small but attractive marble infinity pool surrounded by lounge chairs, hammocks strung to coconut trees and a large bamboo-roofed bar and cafe. The receptionist was helpful with us despite the resort being full at the time (we were able to peek inside a room being cleaned).

The group behind Rest Sea started out running For Rest, a guesthouse set back a little further along the canal that established a good reputation over its first few years, but was closed and being used as staff housing when we last visited.
