Welcome to one of the best nature resorts on Koh Kood island: the Koh Kood Resort
Welcome to the official web site for the Koh Kood resort on Ko Kut island. Here you will find photo's & descriptions of this wonderful botanical garden beach hotel and it's nature surroundings; strictly unedited photo's of the lovely, recently upgraded, Japanese styled bungalows, the beautiful botanical gardens, the cozy new lounge area, the new cocktail bar on beach level, the white sand beach and some of the sights around the island; and, of course, the best internet rates for the recently upgraded bungalows and the special all-in packages.
Koh Kood Resort is one of the best nature hotels on the truly tropical Koh Kood island. The clarity of the sea water around Ko Kut easily matches that of better known islands like Phi-Phi, Phuket, Koh Samui or the similan islands and the lush vegetation and botanical garden at our resort will make you feel like you are staying (nearly) alone in nature. Koh Kood island has not been overrun by tourists like many of the other islands in Thailand have been and it will probably be sometime before this can happen, due to it's relatively remote location in the waters south of Koh Chang and Koh Mak island.
In the Koh Kood resort hotel you and your partner can still be one with nature, enjoy a romantic warm or cold shower under a million stars in your shower with transparent, or in some bungalows open air, roof and get an hour-and-a-half long massage whenever you feel like it. Many of the amenities, like kayakingaround our bay or neighboring empty beaches, snorkeling between the many live corals right next to our own private speedboat pier, or using the high speed satellite internet, are still completely free of charge to all of our resort guests! Only additional trips or the rent of a motorcycle and more nature friendly mountain bike will come with a modest charge. If you choose one of the excellent all-in packages that the Koh Kood resort offers, you will only pay for alcoholic beverages, quite possibly a few additional massages or the rent of motorcycles, when checking out of the Ko Kood hotel.
Located in the crescent shaped half moon Bang Bao bay where the beach gently slopes into the crystal clear sea, Koh Kood resort is not only the most natural resort on Koh Kood to stay at, but also one of the safest. Families with teenagers will rest comfortable knowing that there are no strong currents or undertow in Bang Boa Bay on Koh Kood island and that their kids can enjoy snorkeling, swimming or kayaking while the parents enjoy a fresh coconut and a good book on the beach or treat themselves to an relaxing afternoon massage. If the kids aren't exhausted at sundown, they will be happy to know that ko kood resorts restaurant, lounge, lobby and bar offer Free WiFi, enabling them to connect to whomever or whatever they feel like. We are currently working on extending the range of the WiFi network beyond the restaurant, lounge area and most parts of the beach, which should ensure WiFi access in most of our bungalows soon.
All of our natural bungalows on Ko Kood come with Air Conditioning, a Ceiling Fan, indoor toilet and a separate bathroom with hot water shower, a Personal Safe and very comfortable Beds, covered by a large mosquito net. The Sea View bungalows in the Holiday Cottage Koh Kood or the Koh Kood Resort & Spa, as we are also known as, all have double beds and are located very near to our pristine beach. These bungalows do not offer extra space for extra matresses, however.
Please note that the air condition in the tropical island bungalows can only work between the hours of 17:30 and 06:00, but know that the ceiling- or bedside stand fans will be enough to keep you cool if you happen to be in need of a quick afternoon nap on Koh Kood island. The hot water showers are natural gas powered, so there is no need to wait until 18:00 before you can enjoy a relaxing or refreshing shower.
If you are an scuba diving enthusiast, you'll be happy to learn that there is a frist class scuba diving school on the bottom of the hill right opposite our hotel on Koh Kood. Koh Kut has only recently been discovered by scuba divers for its beautiful aquatic life. The dive sites in our Bang Bao bay and around the island are therefore pristine and definitely not overcrowded by large diving operations. This scuba diving school also offers Scuba diving courses for teenagers as young as 10 yo (open water) and 12 yo (advanced) and introduction classes for kids older than 8, so this can be a fun family (learning) experience. However, if you enjoy snorkeling like the thousands of people have done before you: most of the corals in our bang bao bay lie only one to five meters below the water surface, so they are practically just as visible while snorkeling on Koh Kood.
