Banana Sunset - Bar & Bungalows Koh Mak Reviews
Clean, affordable bungalows, great service Mar 05, 2015
So, this place is basically located in a forest, and while it's built onto the coastline, the beach is rocky and unsuitable for swimming. Surprisingly, there were no mosquitoes, just a lot of ants at night. There's no stretch of sand to lay out on, but there are hammocks throughout the property, as well as one for each of the bungalows, and the nearest sand beach was just a short motorbike ride away. Amenities: cool restaurant/lounge with a pool table, foozball table, live music in the evenings, and a cozy deck to watch the sunset. They even have a 2 for 1 happy hour deal. As advertised, Banana Sunset Bar really does offer the best view of the sunset on the island. The food menu is pretty basic, but tasty, and an a la carte breakfast menu and a dinner bbq are also offered. The guesthouse offers free shuttle service to and from whichever pier you arrive at, just call the guesthouse beforehand and they will pick you up. Motorbike rentals are 300 baht per day. Even though there's nowhere to sunbathe, this charming guesthouse is still a great value. The staff couldn't possibly be any more friendly, courteous, and helpful. The bungalows are immaculate, and well decorated in bohemian chic. Soap, toilet paper and bottled water are constantly replenished, and the rooms are quite large, with a big bed, small chaise, lamps, electrical outlets, table and chairs, clothes rack, flashlight, ashtray, wall fan, an umbrella, and a mosquito net(which i never used because my bungalow was sealed and had mosquito screens on the windows). The bathroom was spotless, and had hot water!!! For the price and the amazing service, this place really can't be beat.
