Lovely new resort, still some kinks to work out
Very nice new resort on Koh Mak. Big clean villas, great pool, and excellent food though bit pricey for Thailand. Free use of kayaks and a lovely bay to use them in - though a bit eye opening to look down in the crystal clear water and see millions of giant spiky sea urchins below us; often a sign the nearby reefs aren’t in great shape :( They seem to be making efforts at being sustainable - free distilled water to fill up our bottles in the lobby for example, yet inexplicably they put a completely unnecessary plastic drink stirrer in every drink. Service was well meaning but very stilted and slow for a 4 star resort - we had to flag someone down every time we wanted to order food, book a massage, etc. and the restaurant closes at 830pm?! We were there in low season and there wasn’t enough chairs at the pool, and they’re currently under expansion. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Mira Montra and the lovely Koh Mak; with more efforts at being sustainable on a tiny island and some staff training this place would be incredible.
