Style and romance pervade Little Moon Villa, a small resort fronting the clay-red sand of Ko Mak’s remote eastern shore.

The resort appears unexpectedly along a dirt lane that ends a few hundred metres further north at Laem Son, home to a single seafood shack and nothing else save tons of space for chilling on the sand. This setting makes Little Moon a fine choice for couples looking to get away from it all, keeping in mind that it’s several kilometres from here to Mak’s more active areas.

Tastefully done concrete bungalows are spaced well apart beneath towering banyan and umbrella trees just beyond the beach. The cheaper rooms are small and set back with shingle roofs and only partial sea views from small patios. We’d part with the extra 500 baht for a larger thatch-roofed villa set on cement stilts, as these bag you sea views through wide glass-and-wood doors and cushioned daybeds on the porches.

All rooms were full on our most recent visit; in the past we found them stylish in an understated way, with soft lighting and flourishes of wood, rattan, stained glass and some interesting fabrics. You also get a soft bed with quality linens, hot-water shower in spacious brushed-concrete bathrooms, free WiFi and fan in addition to the air-con.

While Little Moon seems best suited to couples, groups and families that don’t mind the isolation can check out a two-bedroom villa set right by the sand. A policy that allows children aged six and below to stay for free, and extra beds for just 500 baht each, sweetens the deal for families.

The soft-spoken owners and staff have been welcoming to us on multiple visits and we dig the vintage style and calming ambiance in the restaurant and lounge, where included breakfast is served. We’ve enjoyed a tasty curry and fresh coffee here. Kayaks are free and staffers can arrange motorbike rental, transport to other parts of the island and day trips to nearby Ko Kradat.

The attentive service helps a lot in such an isolated location, and the owners’ sweet Labrador retrievers contribute by lazing around awaiting their next belly rub. We also like the resort’s private beach that’s always free of sandflies, we’ve been told. Do wake up for sunrise.
