With a multi-tiered swimming pool and 15 different room types joining a long wooden pier and bar perched above the sea, Cococape is one of the more eye-catching places to stay on Ko Mak.

The fairly large resort was built along a rocky seafront within walking distance of both Ao Phra and Ao Suan Yai, with a great northerly outlook to Ko Kham and Ko Chang in the distance. The pier bar helps to make up for minimal sand along the shore.

A set of fan bungalows had been torn down since our last visit and replaced by small, bunker-like concrete rooms in an attached single-floor building. Dubbed “nara” by the resort, we don’t think these are worth the money when comparing to similarly priced resorts, unless perhaps you’re set on staying here for the pool and other facilities. At least upgrade to a concrete “rim view” edition with more space, glass windows and large terrace with sea views.

For more cash you could look into the many room types featuring bamboo and thatch lending a tropical feel despite the concrete walls painted white inside and out. Most of these are set on either floor of duplexes and many have circular walls along with hammocks strung to spacious sea-view terraces. Some are set within steps of the pool while others are set in more private spots further up along the hillside that backs the property.

Smart modern rooms, but more lawn would be good!

Families have several options including two-bedroom suites with high ceilings and cheaper rooms with bunk bed in the same space as a king bed. Couples also like Cococape thanks to rooms like “bamboola suite,” featuring a four-poster bed and multiple doors accessing wraparound balconies.

On our last visit we could only check out one of the cheapest nara rooms along with a rim view edition and both appeared clean, with firm beds and rain showerheads in the hot-water wet bathrooms. The free WiFi did not work on that side of the property, but you do get a small flatscreen TV along with fridge and kettle.

Though it’s not huge, kids adore the swimming pool thanks to a wide waterslide that shoots them down from the main pool area to a second, shallower pool down below. Here you’ll also find a massage pavilion and plenty of lounge chairs on the deck.

Someone was obviously keeping the kids in mind.

The staffers we encountered were either timid or friendly to the point of being nosy. There’s a vintage theme going on in the spacious recycled wood restaurant with seating inside and outdoors by the sea, and meals are prepared by both Thai and Western chefs.

Cococape is about a kilometre from Ao Suan Yai’s beachfront, where Koh Mak Resort and Seavana Resort are also worth a look in this price range. Further west, the newish Mira Montra Resort overlooks the best part of Ao Phra, though we felt its designers lacked imagination and the rooms and food are pricey for what you get.
