3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Sivalai is the Thai rendition of the English word, "civilised," which tells you something about the guests that this large upscale resort tries to attract.

With the cheapest villas running 5,000 baht in high season, this is not a backpacker hangout. The smoothly run but impersonal resort sprawls on a squeaky patch of white-sand on either side of a sandbar that juts out for a good 30 metres into the teal water at low tide. While it’s still one of the prettiest spots on Muk, erosion has caused problems in recent years and you’ll now find sandbags and small log barriers around Sivalai’s beach loungers.

Great outlook, but keep an eye on the toddlers as no balcony railings.

Wood-and-concrete Bali-style villas are spacious and tastefully decorated with wide glass windows, soft lanterns, rattan touches and silk pillows on luxurious beds. All of the freestanding rooms are at least 35 square metres in size and equipped with LCD TVs, minibars, gorgeous hot-water bathrooms and wide decks with cushioned lounge chairs. This is the largest resort on Muk and the villas stretch for quite a distance down both Ao Kham and Ao Wua Nawn.

Prices depend mainly on proximity to the best part of the beach and the largest villas are great for families. The Thai-European restaurant/bar enjoys prime views and you’ll find two pools: the small original one near the restaurant and a second, much-larger one further away. Polite staff offers bicycle and kayak rental along with private transfers from the mainland in Sivalai's own speedboats. High season starts November 1, so it's good value if you're here in late October.
