The island of Koh Kood is located 350 km southeast of Bangkok and 80 km off the Thai mainland. Easily accessible from the hub that is Bangkok, it feels like a land before time. The fourth largest island in the country, it remains remarkably undeveloped. Untouched slopes, wild interiors and immaculate beaches compose its raw glamour. The isle's charms inspired the rustic-chic design of the resort, sustainably crafted with recycled wood like the poles that bring to mind the stilts of the local fishing villages.
Koh Kood has a mountainous terrain in the central region. About 70% of Koh Kood are covered by tropical rainforest. Development is scarce and mostly at coastal areas. Koh Kood boasts of scenic beauties, crystals clear sea, pristine beaches, breathtaking waterfalls and a very pure nature environment.
From Laem Ngob, ferry will take 4-5 hours to island. Speed boat takes over an hour. Koh Kood is little known to foreigners. Most of the visitors are Thais who find it a paradise.
The west coast is lined with a series of pristine beaches, sparkling clear sea, captivating views and a great place to catch the magnificent sunset. Most of the best known beaches are along the bays which include the Ao Pak Waeng, Ao Klong Ta Tain, Ao Klong Yai Kee, Ao Ta Pow, Ao Klong Chao, Ao Klong hin and Ao Prao. The prime areas include Ao Sapparos, Ao Klong Kwaen, Ao Yai Kerd, Ao Hin Yai and Ao Chak. Ao Salad and Ao Yai are the major fishing villages here. The Khao Paenthee is the highest hill and has jus been recently discovered as a superb viewpoint for the sparkling island-dotted seas.
Tourists spots in the area include Klong Chao or Tan Sanuk Waterfall. King Rama VI once made a visit to the place in 1911 and granted a name “Anamkok” for the waterfall in the memory of Ong Chian Sue.
