As many of our guests are staying a longer time at Let's Hyde Resort & Villas in Pattaya, and sometimes urge to get away for a couple of days to explore a beautiful Island with white sand beaches, we would like to recommend our sister resort on Koh Mak Island called Ao Kao White sand beach resort.
But first let us share a bit about Koh Mak Island: which can also be found on KohMak.com : Koh Mak is the Island between Koh Chang and Koh Kood.
Koh Mak is located near Trat, and is about 3.5 hours with car from Let's Hyde Resort in Pattaya, followed by a speed boat for 40 minutes...well worth the effort.
The island of Koh Mak is a small island with unspoiled natural charm and beauty and we are working to ensure that development on the island proceeds in a sustainable manner.
On Koh Mak we follow the ideals of ecotourism, and so instead of jet-skis, nightclubs and traffic jams, you’ll find biking trails, diving schools and other ecologically friendly tourism operations. As an example, Ao Kao White Sands Resort is helping to build a sustainable island culture by focusing efforts on expanding their resort using a permaculture framework.
By working with nature rather than against it, Koh Mak can reduce its environmental impact while providing a sustainable flow of locally grown food and other agricultural products.
