Fab low-key, intimate beach resort w great staff”
having toured 3 weeks in thailand with sightseings and transportation, we looked for a relaxing place for a week. baan koh mak more than delivered on this, and we especially took to our hearts the great staff, kids-friendly, but still keeping a professional distance. the room were nice, small but clean and with a great design. the hammock in front of each house was the icing on the cake. the resort is situated right next to the beach, with a beach bar where the bartender sometimes gets on the beach in the evening and performs a fire-show. the sunset from the beach is a must. koh mak is a relaxing, quiet island, but still with enough choices for other eating places.
Love my stay at Baan Koh Mak. The staff is incredibly friendly and nice and helpful. Location is great (sunseeeet!), the beachfront is clean and feels incredibly good! They rent scooters so going around is easy. Also did a boat tour through the hotel, that was fantastic. Food is really good too, and the rooms, well, they have a view on the sea, and they do the job really well!
Great bungalows, perfect location on the beach”
after staying in cheap fan bungalows with open bathrooms for a while we decided to treat ourselves to some air conditioning - this was a splurge for us. we arrived at baan koh mak to find they had not received our reservation from agoda (this seems to be an agoda error?). they had no rooms available and went out of the way to help us find another room for the night - making phone calls and carrying my backpack around to check out a few places nearby. we were planning to stay a few extra days anyway so this was no bother. we ended up almost next door at monkey island (also great) for two nights and came back to baan after. the food was a little expensive, but the beach front location was certain worth it for a few meals - we tried all the restaurants nearby (bbq at the food garden and the art hut were favorites). everyone was very friendly - one of the ladies noticed i wasn't feeling well, offered headache medicine, and remembered the next morning to ask if i felt better. the bungalows are enclosed and concrete, modern feeling, thoughtfully designed, and nicely placed so that each feels a bit private. we stayed an extra night, and would have stayed much longer if it weren't for our budget - we paid baht per night. nice beach, hammock or swing on each porch, quiet and very mellow. a few things could use improvement: the sheet did not fit the bed and the bathroom could have been cleaner.
Superbly located with a beach club vibe”
I was happily surprised with the quality of Baan Koh Mak. This has a beach club feel to it, with well appointed bungalows with sea view (you can hear the waves when all else is silent), a restaurant on the beach, a beach bar, IG-like hammocks and swings. Very well located. The rooms could use a desk or bedside lamp and the bed's mattress was quite bad - these are the cons.
Everything for a simple, easy life”
We loved out stay at Baan Koh Mak. The accommodation is simple but has everything you need. The staff leant us a phone charger because we’d forgotten our travel adaptor. The location is really easy from the pier, arriving from Trat. And it’s very close to little shops and other restaurants. There’s a lovely beach bar with cool music and the food is good. Lovely people - they also organised our transport to our next resort. Totally recommend.

Very homey and clean resort”
The resort is on beachfront and the room is very clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They are willing to pick me up from Koh Mak resort pier to the hotel.
nice clean new room”
The hotel was nice big and clean room. Food was good. Price is fine. Location is so perfect. All are ok for stay in Koh mak
Close to beach with value price”
I just back from Koh Mak. It's okay with the quality of accommodation but all the staff were great. great service and gave us a lot of info. The restaurant in the resort sell the same price with other small shop. Important if you come for beach, you will be disappointed.
Great place, has a few issues”
Honestly we enjoined our stay at the Baan Koh Mak, the price was very low and the location was excellent. The facilities need a bit of love, the water pressure in the shower was non existent and the hot water heater did not work. The room is made Thai style, with a bed and a small fridge, you don’t get a table or closet, you have to put your stuff on ground or the metal bar in the corner. Not ideal for western tourists. Even with the low prices, I don’t think we would book this place again, it’s a bit too spartan and needs a bit of work.
Fantastic and great value for money”
Considering price, standard, service, location and beach this is a great place! Family friendly and nice staff. We will revisit for sure if we come back to Koh Mak.
Located at beautiful Ao Kao beach...quiet and secluded, privacy is assured. Lived in beachfront bungalow, I was abounded in breezes. Cozy and comfy environment with friendly staff. Love the simplicity of the room especially the design of its toilet. The food is so so and think that the bbq seafood dinner is nothing to shout about. Alternatives - there are a row of restaurants behind Baan Koh Mak.
I didn't fancy the first room they put us in, mainly cause there was a insect nest on our hammock but the staff relocated us to a different room, and this was a larger room with all 3 top-to-bottom windowed walls, no additional cost for the room change! There's no tv or fridge in the room but that doesn't matter, the only time we're in the room is when we want to have a bit of a shut eye or just lay down, relax and gazing outside and view the beautiful beach scenery. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and will do their very best to make our stay memorable to us. Everything in this island close before 10.30pm. After that, things seem to be quiet around. I thought we would be having a goodnight sleep for our tomorrow's activities in Koh Mak.This is the down side of this hotel... the dogs are very noisy at night... it's really hard to sleep sometimes. I hope the staff have some ways to make the dogs not to wonder around near the rooms at night and bark so loud. All in all, still a nice place to stay. x
We enjoyed our stay at Baan Koh Mak with nice bungalows close to the beach, friendly and helpful staff and good food at their restaurant.
Nice friendly hotel by the beach”
Very nice hotel although it is quite simple. The staff is really really friendly and can help you with most things. The food in the restaurant is great and they have a beach bar. You can rent bicycles, and cycle around the island. There are a lot of small roads and paths so it's a perfect activity for the island. You can also rent cayaks. A lot of swedish people in the hotel and on the whole Island.
Wonderful staff - disappointing beach”
The staff here were wonderful and I could not find fault with with their attentive service. Every request was met promptly and the food at the restaurant was great. Unfortunately the beach in front of the resort is littered with plastic. It just seems to be the way the weather and currents direct things. Each day in April brought a fresh load. The beaches on the opposite side of the island were fine. Apart from the plastics pollution, the water here is shallow and there are many submerged rocks, broken coral and spiky sea urchins. Sadly, this just a beach to look at. Definitely not one for getting wet. The bungalows have floor to ceiling windows on three sides so you may feel kind of exposed when you draw the curtains to see out. Scooters and bicycles are readily available so getting out and about is no problem. This area also has the greatest cluster of shops and services. The sand flies are a nuisance but there is no malaria on Koh Mak.
Top Spot on the beach & very friendly staff”
We walked past & liked the aspect on bungalows on beachfront with restaurant at shoreline. Was low season so place was empty and staff busy cleaning, painting & getting resort ready but were very friendly & showed us rooms. We booked online with agoda and the 5 of us ended up staying seven nights as it was so relaxing. Close to good restaurant Kon Gin Sen who serve excellent food and are very friendly. Weather was good most days for low season but best part was no other travellers so we had it to ourself.
Cleanliness an issue”
On the beach but you get all the sandflies. You are better off At the newly renovated Sea View place literally next door for thé same price. We were not happy with the standards of cleanliness, the accommodation needs to be renovated completely. Staff were friendly. We did not try the food as there lots of nice options round the corner in the main street. Drinks wise there should be a happy hour to encourage people to drink there as it’s better to bring your own drinks on the beach from the supermarket. Koh Mak was very disappointing after seeing Koh Kood, the water is not very clear and the sand dark brown. We would not go back.
Could be better”
I think the hotel could upgrade a bit by adding at least one or 2 furniture in the room which is empty. I like the bathroom. The food at the restaurant is quite random, sometimes good, sometimes so so. They did not clean the room over the 4 nights we stayed there. No regret but I think it could be better for that price.
Great place, extremely clean”
Beautiful garden, maintained all day, the beach constantly cleaned and well equipped. There are seating and lying bags, hammocks and a beach bar. Everywhere clean, order, quiet place. The staff was absolutely great, friendly, helpful. To clean the house you need to hand over the key, or if you spend time on the terrace, just tell the staff, who is always available. I have to commend very good cuisine, good food quality, cleanliness and the food was very tasty. Prices similar to restaurants on the street, but food in hotels was much better. Close to the hotel are shops, restaurants, groceries, cafes. You can rent a motorcycle in the hotels. The island is small, you can move on foot. I recommend this accommodation, we felt there very well, the place is beautiful, maintained and well located.
