Hideout Koh Kood highlights

Opened just last year, Hideout Koh Kood is a modern resort on a hidden beach in Koh Kood, one of Thailand’s less-visited islands. This resort in Koh Kood is the epitome of Siam paradise: an untouched beach surrounded by seas in mint condition and an old fishermen village nearby.

The highlight of the untouched paradise would have to be its clear, turquoise waters guarded by a blanket of tall palm trees.

While you’re there, you can pick up a kayak or a SUP board provided for free – courtesy of Hideout Koh Kood – and venture out into the open water. The best time would be in the late afternoon to experience a sunset in the middle of the sea.

Spending time on the shore there can be just as fulfilling with hammocks and swings waiting for you to plop down.

Within the property, you can find a rocky reef that is a Sam Phan Bok doppelganger; here, you can dip your toes in while posing for the camera. If you want something more tropical, then head over to the low-hanging palm trees on the beach.

Minimal rooms and more

The buildings are another nice feature of the resort with the architectural style being minimal – not only aesthetically pleasing but easily takes your IG game to another level.

Upon arrival, visitors with packages can wait to get on one of the public ferries organized by the resort.

For those without packages, an option would be to hop on one of the speed boats provided by Boonsiri Ferry to get back and forth between Trat and the island. Each ride will take only an hour at ฿500 (~USD15.89) per person.

The rounds include departing at either 10.45AM or 2.20PM and returning at either 9AM or 12PM. There is also a car park with the fee of ฿50 per night for visitors with cars to leave them on land.
