Formerly Suchanaree Resort, this place changed hands since our last visit and the crew at Prompakdee Koh Mak Resort added a few air-con bungalows and tent rental to go with the older huts near the centre of Ao Suan Yai.

Facing the sea from a lawn backing into coconut trees, the original bungalows with metal roofs are still, for Ko Mak, a decent deal. Worn interiors come with soft mattresses placed on the floors and draped in mosquito nets. You also get a fan, cold-water wet bathroom and plastic chairs on the porches. These are the cheapest rooms (apart from tents) on Ao Suan Yai.

Newer air-con bungalows made of wood with thatch roofs and tinted floor-to-ceiling windows stand closer to the beach, just beyond a narrow moat. These have no extras apart from WiFi and hot water, and, although they were full so we couldn’t look inside, they seem pricey for the small size. We like the front decks, but don’t expect any privacy when lounging on them. Also steer clear if you have small children, as railings are missing.

Over at the associated campground, dubbed Acoustic Camp, tents are pitched over a wide sandy area just back from a great beachfront. These can be set up on raised platforms or grass and they all open to sea views and hammocks strung to coconut trees. Shared bathrooms with cold-water showers are walled in by bamboo to the rear.

Tents are also on hand.

Popular with those staying elsewhere as well as guests of Prompakdee, Thai Sabai Bar is set right by the sand and also run by the same group. We found staffers stylish and helpful, and beachfront yoga classes were on offer when we last visited.

Further up near the corner of Ao Suan Yai, Happy Days Resort has log cabins packed in close together behind a restaurant and these aren’t bad if you want to save cash on air-con. Also check out Banana Sunset over on Laem Chan if you like the backpacker-camping-bar thing.
