The Makathanee Resort on Koh Mak
Koh Mak island and it's satellite islands in the south eastern part of Thailand currently hold as much as 24 resorts, hotels, bungalow parks and other types of accommodations where you can spend the night in different levels of comfort and luxury. However, none of these resorts, hotels or bungalow parks on or near ko Mak will be able to claim that they can beat the location of the Makathanee resort with it's impressive beach that gently slopes into the clean and quiet sea with crystal clear water; the hundreds of coconut trees all along the beach, it's beautiful landscaped gardens with a perfect carpet of grass, a nature friendly private swimming pool with bubble seat, truly impressive panorama view beach bungalows, brand new hotel rooms, Family Suites and, for the romantically involved: the Honeymoon suites. The Makathanee resort is also one of only two hotel resorts on Koh Maak to have it's own concrete speedboat pier and fleet of speedboats which run between the Krom Luang Laem Ngop pier and Koh Mak, Koh wai and the other surrounding islands all year round.
Koh Maak island is a beautiful and mostly quiet family island, which is quite a bit more civilized than most of it's neighbors. On Ko Mak electricity is available 24 hours per day, whereas many of the resorts and hotels on Koh Wai, Koh Kradat, Koh Kam and many even Koh Kood run their own generators only during the hours of the night, which makes basic comforts like a refrigerator nearly impossible to have. In the Makathanee Koh Mak all of the rooms, bungalows and suites have air conditioning, a refrigerator / mini bar, a TV, hot water shower, personal safe and coffee and tea making facilities. There is an Internet cafe in the reception area and motorcycles, golf carts or even cars can be rented from the service desk in the same room. You can also use the chauffeur driven Makathanee Minibus to be dropped off and / or picked up from anywhere on Ko Maak. For less local transfers (to other islands), trips to Cambodia, snorkeling or diving trips and courses, or other things to see and do, please visit the information center near the road entrance of the beach resort. Turn right onto the small main road to find a series of small restaurants and pubs that provide nearly all of the nightlife that you will find on this peaceful island. The best fresh seafood Beach BBQ, however, stands right next to our famous restaurant, on our own beach. Be sure to arrive early for the best pickings.
Because the owners of this Koh Mak resort and their families have been living on this beautiful island for literally centuries, they have a very strong bond with Mak island and it's nature which is still mostly in tact. Knowing this, we hope that you won't mind if we ask you to limit the use of the shower heater and air conditioner as much as possible, so that both future visitors as well as the next generation of Koh Makians will be able to enjoy Koh Mak island, it endless pristine beaches and it's crystal clear sea water with abounded sea life, as much as we trust you will.
8 comfortable and beautiful beach bungalows with panorama view of the beach and sea + 8 new Pool and / or Sea View hotel rooms were recently joined by 6 modern (double) family suites, 5 giant honeymoon suites, 10 Deluxe high comfort rooms, a library, a cocktail lounge, a karaoke room and a seminar room which can seat 60 persons, so we can offer nearly every type of accommodations on koh Mak that you require.
We at the Makathanee Resort aim at giving you and your loved one(s) that one holiday which you will dream back to, for many years to come.
