Experience a real slice of paradise at this lovely four-star retreat in ‘The Maldives of Thailand’
The fourth largest island in the kingdom, it has nevertheless remained quiet and private and as such has become the destination of choice for discerning travellers looking for a real slice of paradise.
One of the island’s most popular resort’s, Away Koh Kood, located on Klongchao beach on the island’s west coast, is the epitome of a homely island hideaway – think deluxe bungalow villas with private terraces and sea views from almost every room, a selection of superb restaurants and bars, a private sandy beachfront, and a well-equipped dive and activity centre offering adventurous trips every day of the week.
Located over 16 rai (6.5 acres) of lovingly maintained land, the four-star hideaway has been carefully constructed to blend into the tropical surroundings. Its newest Duplex Bungalows (wonderful two-floor accommodations housing a maximum of four adults), for example, have been made entirely from sustainable local materials, as has the new poolside terrace, located right by the beachfront, where guests can sunbathe and sip cocktails while admiring the resort’s tropical flora.
Besides the cozy bungalows, other highlights at the resort include the beachfront Castaway Pub, a 30-seater bar offering international drinks and snacks, and equipped with a darts board, snooker table, foosball, and karaoke set up; Escape Restaurant, serving international, fusion and Thai cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner; and Yan Spa, offering a long list of natural treatments and signature therapies specially designed to reinvigorate, refresh, and relax. Bliss.
