If even the beach is named after you, you know you count, and so does the Mook Sivalai Beach Resort! It is the most eye-catching resort of Koh Mook. The luxurious bungalows are spread over the tip of white sand between the palm trees. This allows you to swim in the sea on both sides of the sandbank. When the water is low you can take a dip in one of the two pools. Here you are more than fully equipped!
The Koh Mook Hostel is one of the cheapest places to sleep at in Koh Mook, but with an excellent reputation! The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and there are small lockers for your valuables. The friendly family that runs this place will be happy to give you information about Koh Mook. Opposite the hostel is Miss Island Bakery, here you will eat a super good breakfast which is included in the price!
The Koh Mook Hostel has a good central location, close to Sivalai Beach and only a few minutes walk to the pier and the village. In the immediate vicinity there are also numerous restaurants and coffee shops.
Mookies Bungalows has different types of bungalows in its beautiful surroundings. It is a five minutes walk to Charlie Beach and 20 minutes to the village of Koh Mook. But a scooter taxi only costs 50 baht per person. If you don’t want to ride a scooter they have a transport three times a day. There are several cottages (21 rooms in total now), the cheapest ones are made of bamboo and have a cold shower. Ten concrete ones with fan and the more expensive cottages have hot water, aircon and a fridge.
If you are hungry there is a full restaurant and bar at Mookies so you have a nice dinner while the children can play in the play centre they even have on their terrain.

Altijd al eens willen slapen in een onvervalst bamboe hutje? Dit is je kans! Koh Mook Coco Logde is een bijzondere accommodatie.

Voor je bungalow heb je een klein terras met een zitje. Live is simple!
Er zijn ook kleine zeer betaalbare familiebungalows. Alle bungalows staan op een rustige locatie tussen de palmbomen en kijken (gedeeltelijk) uit op de zee met vissersboten. Het is ca 5 minuten lopen naar Sivalai Beach en het dorpje van Koh Mook.
