Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort – Hotel Review

Koh Mook is in Thailand’s southern province of Trang. It is one of many lesser visited islands in this region along Koh Libong, Koh Kradan, and Koh Ngai. These islands are all just a few kilometers off the mainland, so easy to access, and totally amazing.

It was the white sandy peninsula of Sivalai Beach that attracted us to Koh Mook. In photos, it looks like one of the best beaches in Thailand, and I’ll tell you what, it is.


Sivalai Beach, Koh Mook


The water on Koh Mook doesn’t have that incredible 50-meter visibility like you’ll find further in the Andaman Sea (islands like Koh Lipe and Koh Adang). However, the water here on Koh Mook is warm, clean, and perfect for swimming in. No complaints here.

The best way to enjoy your time on this epic white sandy beach is to stay right on it. Literally.

We spent two nights right on the sand in one of Koh Mook Sivalai Resort’s Beachfront Bungalows. The rooms are fitted out beautifully with a huge King Bed, wide sliding glass doors offering amazing views of the beach, a great balcony for sunbaking on, and a strong air conditioner for escaping that tropical heat.

Chilling out in the afternoon gazing out across the sea is about as relaxing as it gets. We spent the first afternoon taking it easy, sitting on this beautiful balcony, figuring out what else to do on the island. Sometimes less really is more.

You will quickly realize that nothing quite beats the feeling of waking up, opening the curtains and running straight out into the ocean for a morning swim. I’m not a morning person, but this is one place I really want to wake up and get out of bed!

After your wake-up swim, head over to the dining area where you’ll find a huge continental and Asian buffet breakfast. Fried rice, Singapore noodles, omelet, toast, pancakes, pastries, they’ve got it all! A big breakfast and a cup of coffee is the perfect way to prepare for a big day of exploring the island.

Resort Facilities

The Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort has a range of beautiful beachfront bungalows and garden view bungalows. All the single-story bungalows are set in a beautiful tropical garden landscape, which suits the island vibe well.

The resort has two pools which you can enjoy until the late afternoon. That’s for just in case you get sick of the beach, which I don’t see happening. We didn’t use the pool at all, as the beach is simply amazing.

If you have loads of luggage you can use the small golf car to transport your things around. I’m more of a “fit everything in my backpack and just walk” kind of guy. But the option of the car is there if you need it.

There is also a Thai massage on the resort grounds. While a bit more expensive than you will find in other locations, it is still a great way to unwind. If you want a nice massage without having to go too far from your bungalow, then this is definitely the place to be.

How to Book Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort

You can book Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort directly on their page, where they list out peak and off-peak rates. Off-peak (1st May to 30th October) is about half the price. You will just have to put up with the rain which isn’t too bad when you’re swimming in the ocean anyway.

I also suggest checking the price on Agoda or Booking as there is sometimes a better deal available.



Attractions on Koh Mook

Exploring the island from Koh Mook Sivalai is simple. You can rent a motorbike near the entrance of the resort for just 200 THB per day plus fuel costs. It takes about half an hour to ride across the entire island. If you can’t ride a motorbike then there are motorbike taxis a short walk away in the town which will take you anywhere you want to go.

Some of our favourite spots on Koh Mook were Charlie Beach and the Emerald Cave. These are both over on the west side of the island. I’ve written a detailed guide to Koh Mook which I highly suggest you read.

How to get to Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort

It is super simple to get to Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort. The main ferry pier is located just 10-minute walk away. If you have too much luggage or camera gear like me, then you can hop on a motorbike taxi for 100 THB. No sweat involved.

For day trips to Koh Kradan or Emerald Cave, you can even ask longtail boat drivers to pick you up on the beach right in front of your bungalow. It’s such an easy way to get around!

Our two night stay on Koh Mook was sponsored by Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort. As always, all opinions are my own.
