Thailand has become an increasingly popular tourist destination in recent years but for those travellers who like to seek out the road less travelled you can still find quiet, unspoilt beaches in Koh Kood.
The Island of Koh Kood is known for its spectacular tropical landscapes, crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches. This location is one of the most pristine and untouched islands of Thailand.
The island was settled in 1904 and the oldest community on the island is Klong Mad Village where you'll discover its residents still making a living from planting rubber trees, cultivation of coconuts and fishing.
Ridged plains have given rise to many inland brooks, streams and waterfalls on the island with one of the most spectacular being The Klong Chao Waterfall where you'll find its three tiers allowing you to swim and bathe in the waters all year around. Koh Kood is a stunning island where a slower pace of life will help even the most world-weary traveller relax and recharge.
A wonderful destination to visit even in the traditional green season months, with minimal chance of showers the best time is between November and February.

The tree-top dining experience is not to be missed and then relax by starlight at the over-water, outdoor Cinema Paradiso. The spa is exceptional and likely to become a favourite part of your stay.
