We stumbled down hillsides blanketed with ancient rainforest, dug our toes into the soft sand on coconut palm shaded beaches, strolled through the pristine waters, the ocean lapping at our calves and knew we had found our next retreat.
The island of Koh Kood is located 350 km southeast of Bangkok and 80 km off the Thai mainland. Easily accessible from the hub that is Bangkok, it feels like a land before time. The fourth largest island in the country, it remains remarkably undeveloped. Untouched slopes, wild interiors and immaculate beaches compose its raw glamour. The isle's charms inspired the rustic-chic design of the resort, sustainably crafted with recycled wood like the poles that bring to mind the stilts of the local fishing villages.
