My family of four people, two adults and two children, aged 2 and 4 years old, stayed at Away in the second week of March 2012. A very relaxing, very nice vacation. The staff make this place. While not everything is perfect (where is?), the staff really, really try hard and really, really care. That is why we would return to Away if we ever return to Koh Kood.
The hotel is ideally situated, although no swimming beach directly attached to the property. We used the free kayaks to cross the five minute gap to the long white sand beach across the water.
Once time I left the kayak too low on the beach across the way and didn't realize the tide had turned. We got so carried away at the other end of the beach and in the cafe at the other end of the beach, the tide rose above the level where the kayak was resting. When we returned the kayak was gone. Thankfully the staff had been watching and they retrieved the kayak before it was lost to sea! I literally swam back across the gap and brought the kayak back for my family to return to the hotel. That is how small the gap is between hotel and beach.
Bear in mind that all products and food must be brought in from either other islands or the mainland, so a trip to Koh Kood is not a gastronomical adventure by any means, but we did not go hungry!
The grounds are well kept, the rooms are clean and functional, the mosquitos minimal when we were there, and the sunsets memorable. Very nice place.
