A good choice for backpackers seeking maximum seclusion, Green View covers a quiet, jungle-backed property that reminds us of the campgrounds with cabins that you’ll find at many Thai national parks.




Sporting metal roofs, hardwood floors, varnished log exteriors, screened windows and woven-bamboo walls on the inside, the bungalows stand in a couple of rows with a lot of space in between. Swings hang from various types of trees and each cabin comes with a hammock and chairs on a large front porch, including many with sea views.

Rooms come with choice of fan or air-con and they all bag you more interior space than the similarly priced bungalows found at competitors like Island Hut and Baan Ing Kao. You also get a desk or table and a soft bed, but mosquito nets are missing in the air-con rooms so keep those doors shut. It’s only cold-water showers and bucket-flush toilets in the tiled wet bathrooms.

Green View also has some larger bungalows with two double beds for families. In the rooms we’ve checked out, interior surfaces show some wear but cleaners seem to do a good job.

Ao Tan is not much of a beach, with only small strips of sand between rocks and tree roots, but we like the wooden pier culminating at a small sala with some benches. Expect some wind and choppy water until around January, when the prevailing winds shift and the water at Ao Tan begins to look like glass. The water stays shallow for hundreds of metres offshore before disappearing at low tide to reveal silt flats—serious swimmers should look elsewhere.

The helpful Thai family owners added some giant concrete crabs and tortoises to lend the grounds a quirky feel. They serve big portions of Thai food along with WiFi in the restaurant while renting kayaks and motorbikes—and you’ll want some wheels because Green View is one of Mak’s most remote places to stay. Expect a three- to five-kilometre trip to Ao Suan Yai or Ao Kao. No other restaurants are found within walking distance of the resort.

Serene.

This tends to be one of the quietest places to stay on an altogether quiet island, although boisterous groups of Thais occasionally check in on weekends and holidays. The resort shuts down for much of the rainy season.
