Koh Kood, Any Good Or Not

Recommended Posts

my wife and kids and I will be back in may,before we head to ubon we will be going to koh kood.

Any members had any experience or knowledge of this island.

way down south to koh lipe is an option but it is so far, any insights into nice quiet family style places would be helpful.

we dont get much time alone so we will bring the mother in law, stick her in a bungalow with the kids next to ours, and bang like an outhouse door in a cyclone all weekend.

somewhere relaxing.

Very quiet. No restaurants outside resorts when last there two years ago. No bars, clubs, 7-11's. Ok for families with young children, although I imagine teenagers might get bored. Pick a good resort, and you will have a good time.

expensive to get to-expensive to stay at, no entertainment -except gazing at the stars, electric often cut off-generators, and some resorts do not allow kids. The very worst for most dedicated TV-users must be that also no Thai girls for rent available.

I've done plenty of islands.

Just to point out Koh Samet is as good as any, and very close and easy to get to.

Wonderful beaches, nice sand gently sloping into the sea, nice restaurants on the beach at night.

I didn't find any advantage going to more out of the way islands.

yeah we booked at the kk nature resort for two nights in an all inclusive package ( except booze) with transport from Trat; it was so good we stayed for another two nights. the resort itself is a bit ramshackle but the staff were brilliant, all Cambodian. We have a small baby and a 3.5 year old boy and they took the baby off us, every time we ate which was something my wife really appreciated; our son was able to run around with the resort kids. So it worked well from that perspective. We liked the food too especially the seafood barbecue at weekends - we were eating very fresh barracuda steaks, baked potatoes, prawns, pork - all excellent stuff. They also had kayaks and snorkels too for free use and the sea was really clean. would definitely go back.

And no annoying sex tourists! Wife and I enjoyed our visit there last year.

I was there 2 years ago most places had electricity, didn't see a 7/11 just a regular type grocery store. I thought it was a stunning island went there in low season and got a fantastic room for 1000B a night we had the place to ourselves. Beaches were great, restaurant choices were quite limited but the Dusita resort we stayed at had great food, way better than other places we tried. No nightlife really to speak of. Koh Kood along with Koh Ngai are the 2 nicest islands I have been to in Thailand. Koh Samet cannot hold a candle to Koh Kood in my opinion though Samet does have better nightlife if that's important to you.

Some photos I took below.
