Hotellet ligger bra men man får paddla 20 m till en fin strand som kam vara lite charmigt. Det går även att gå eller annat färdmedel men men man får köra ca 2 km. Maten och service nådde inte upp till den standard som stjärnor på hotellet. Det var för dyr mat med tanke på vad man fick på tallriken. Ingen mat för de yngre. Väldigt dålig wifi. Vill man ha det lugnt och soft är Kho Kood en perfekt ö. Vi var nöjda men det räcker med 3 dygn.
Lovely place, lovely employees. Very good food in restaurant. Garden is well taken care off, and beach cleaning improved during the week. Kayaks brings you to an even better beach in 3 minutes. Resort beach is rocky on low tide. The silence and relaxing place is disturbed by the speedboats in too high speed entering the river. Bathroom need upgrade and cleaning to be improved. Minor problems corrected immedeately. The surroundings are magnificent. We most probably will return. Koh Kood became our favourite island in Thailand and we have been to many.
Smooth as silk
Nice and quiet hotel. The room (duplex) is big enough to allow 4 persons to sleep but it is not well adapted for small children as the stairs to reach the upper beds are dangerous. The negative points of this hotel are that there is no direct access to the beach : you need to use a Kayak which can limit the access (although the staff in charge was very kind and helpful). And it is a little bit far from any other restaurants so, if you don t have your own transportation and if you have small children, for dinner, you have no other choice but to eat at the hotel s restaurant which may not be the best in the area.
Very noisy place from 9 AM to 9 PM... new bungalows are building.There is not good enter to sea. Not suitable for small children since you need a boat.
Construction work during our stay was disturbing, especially since they worked until 01.30 in the morning. Not suitable for small children since you need a boat (or have to take a long walk) to go to the beach.
Helpful staff, they arranged booking and transfer to another resort when we wanted to cancel two nights due to the construction in progress.
Our holiday at the Away Resort in Koh Kood was unbelievable. This resort in its special location caries many special memories. Our time there was relaxing, surrounded by the beautiful forest like gardens, palm trees, clear blue turquoise waters and excellent treatment and service from the Away Koh Kood staff. The friendly staff always made us feel welcome. A special thanks to Supaporn Yindeemak (Pui) (Assisting Manager) whom always went the extra mile, and far beyond what was expected, in making this holiday perfect for myself my fiance and our parents. This is greatly appreciated.
Vi bokade två nätter i deras sk. tält och lade till en extra natt på plats. Det var rent och fräscht överallt på hela resorten. Vänlig och bra personal. Maten som serveras på deras restaurang är toppen. Pröva deras Mixed fruit shake så blir Ni inte besviken. Utsikten är härlig och man känner att man är i paradiset på Away Resort. När man bokar tältet så får man även djungelns ljud och deras invånare nära inpå en. Riktigt mysigt men öronproppar kan behövas ibland. Vi hade inga problem med djur men granntältet fick in en mus en kväll. Personalen var snabbt på plats med katt och stege för att fixa till problemet. Ett minus är att vattnet utanför bryggan ändras med tidvattnet (beror nog på vilken månad det är också)och strömmarna blir riktigt starka. Detta var inget som de varnade för- vilket de borde då vi en dag fick problem då man måste simma ut en bit för att nå en närliggande ö och resortens strand. Därför skriver jag in det som en kommentar här så kanske det finns en chans att folk ser det. Kan inget annat än varmt rekommendera stället! Great resort with great service. Friendly staff, fantastic food and the surroundings like a paradise. Nice, clean Islandteants with the feeling of beeing in the djungle- camping! Really nice! Pay attention to the currents that are really strong.
Possitiv: Very nice hotel. Friendly stuff. Good breakfast buffet. No or not many Russians !!!! Negativ: Food at the Restaurant is overpriced. Better (Thai-)food at half price a few minutes to walk or 1 minute by motobike. Room have nice view but,if no special rate, also overpriced.
as good as everytime
The hotel was really good. Nice, clean, fantastic staff. The personnel in the activity Center is the most wonderful personalities I´ll ever met. I would recommend this hotel for those who want to relax or go for water acticities. Rent a motorbike and go to the Fishing Village. And ask the staff about restaurant options if you don´t want to eat at the hotel every day. There are more restaurants on the island. There are no shopping at all on the island, only lovely beaches and nature. Don´t forget to bring the mosquito spray. My family with 2 teenagers really enjoyed our stay for 4 nights.
Lovely surrondings, friendly staff, beautiful bungalows and good food. A very quiet and romatic place.
Easy and efficient!
Excellent location so peaceful and clean. We were happy to have stayed here. The seaview duluxe room was really nice with great views of the quiet beach. I would definately recommend this place. The breakfast too was very good with lots of choice. The staff were also friendly and helpful. The only downfall is the tax that is added on top of the food bills......but hey its a hotel and it was cheap compared to UK anyway
Very good communication and easy to do
Quite nice hotel but not enough for European travellers. Hotwater and A/C were not on during daytime in the villas and the interior furnishing in the rooms was very poor, i.e. few electrical plugs in the room, no mirror in the bathroom (no electrical plugs there either), poor lightning in the room (impossible to read in the bed) and no refrigerator as confirmed by the agent. Nice restaurant and decent international breakfast, but far too expensive menues at dinnertime. Lovely garden and surroundings. In comparison to a similar hotel on Koh Chang or Koh Maak not worth the money.
Their poor English led unfortunately to quite a few misunderstandings
