Koh Kood Holidays

Often referred to as 'the Maldives of Thailand', Koh Kood (or Koh Kut as it's also known), is located in the eastern Gulf of Thailand close to the Cambodian border and despite being the fourth largest island in Thailand, is still one of the least developed. It's the place to enjoy an abundance of unspoiled nature whilst savouring, the tranquillity and warm tropical hospitality.

With jungle-clad mountains, mangrove-lined rivers, breathtaking waterfalls, traditional fishing villages and extraordinary super soft beaches lapped by crystal clear sea, Koh Kood is quite simply stunning. The pristine beaches skirt the west coast of the island and include the long swathes of Klong Chao, picture-perfect Bang Bao, boulder-strewn Ao Noi and the sweeping sands of Ao Prao.

Vast stretches of the north, east and south coasts are accessible only by boat, while the forested interior is graced by several waterfalls, the most famous of which is Nam Tok Khlong Chao. Most of the island is penetrated only by sandy tracks which makes it an ideal place to explore on foot and with its quiet rocky coves and mangrove estuaries, it's also great for snorkelling and kayaking.

With its low-key development and spread out beaches, Koh Kood does not overflow with restaurants and bars away from the resorts themselves, neither is it the place to expect lots of nightlife or shopping. It really is a place to kick back and forget about the world for a few days, so if you want to see what Phuket or Koh Samui were like around 30-40 years ago as tourism was beginning, then visit Koh Kood now!
