Yes, I love my city life, but every once in a while it's always a great idea to embrace the slow living and completely forget all your worries and the hectic city life. A couple weeks ago, my sister, my brother, and I spent 3 days 2 nights in "Bann Makok"a wonderful getaway solar powered boutique hotel with 8 rooms in Koh Kood, the furthest island on the east-coast of Thailand. This place is like a Hidden Gem! I wouldn't lie, it's not so easy to get to Koh Kood. We drove 5 hours from Bangkok to the port in Trad, then took an hour speed boat ride to get to Bann Makok in Koh Kood.
From the moment we arrived, I was so captivated by the "Thai Style" vintage wood furnished house that set right on the canal and how its setting goes so well with the beautifully and peacefully relaxed vibes of the natural surroundings. The warm welcome from friendly staffs making me feel like home. Everything here was so much better than I imagined!
You can enjoy almost anything you want at this small cozy eco friendly hotel! Having a day full of outdoor and indoor activities of your choice, snorkeling among little fishes, kayaking to the beach, playing in the sea, walking to the waterfall relaxing in the room, reading your favourite book, or just being lazy drinking coffee, chilling by the balcony and looking at the clear canal water. I truly had a memorable and unique experience at Bann Makok and would definitely recommend Bann Makok to all nature lovers seeking peace and tranquility away from the city. It's definitely worth a visit!
