Mac's on the beach May 27, 2013
Mac’s Bay Resort was the place where one magical women was staying, and of course she used her magic to lure me in her cabin and her life. Poor me… I went to Mac’s a bit earlier for a black moon party and I was considering coming over and staying in one of the cabanas. They have variety of places to stay, new part, old part, rooms, cabanas… It is family run place with whole family living in the middle house that doubles for restaurant and reception. They are trying to make this place upscale and new part is really nicely done. There is good pool, well designed and surrounded with greenery.

Place is located in the mid way from Thong Sala to Haad Rin in the village of Ban Tai. It is area full of small resorts, good restaurants, 7/11 shop (there is thons of those all over the island) and most of the things you would need. Price for the cabana was 500 baht per night. Most of the moon parties are made in this area (aside of main fool moon that is the best on the Haad Rin) so you will have lots of places to go to and party if you are into that. Beach is not that good on this side of the island, water is shallow and full of corals, shells and things that can easily cut your feet. You can nicely enjoy the sand part of the beach and get your bronze color, but not much of the swimming in these waters. Small river comes into the beach some hundred meters away from the hotel. It makes pretty large sand bar which you can walk on and come almost to the reef. That is another reason not to swim in this area… that river is not on the cleanest side and if you don’t want some weird skin issue, stick with the pool.

On the side of the restaurant there is line of older one room small cabanas. They are super simple for walls with bathroom, small terrace and a hammock… Do you need anything else? Answer is HELL NO!

Hammock is just perfect to relax, sleep, look at the Koh Samui shadow, watch the sunset, sunrise, just kiss your loved one… just…

Cabanas are pretty secure and there is a security personnel going around all night long. Room has two beds that are nothing special but enough, and ok bathroom with hot water. Fan makes nights bearable, and there are few places to charge your electronics. Internet is ok, not too strong but at least it does not disappear much. We ate in the restaurant once and it was very good and not expensive at all. Eating in the same hotel where you stay is cheating for me, because you should spread the love all around. Only thing we always got there was the morning coffee (of course it was me going there and getting coffee in the bed for loved one). My favorite place to eat on the island was on the market in Thong Sala. They have great variety of good food, excellent juices for 1$ and more than great sweets. Staff was really great and helpful.
