About Travel to Koh Kood
Koh Kood is located about 30 km to the south east of Koh Chang and 30 km to the west of the coast of Cambodia. Koh Kood is fairly large, measuring 22 km long by just under 10 km at its widest. Relatively few people live permanently on the island in relation to its size. Estimates of the island’s population vary from 2,000 to 2,500, and that number will change periodically as many of the people on the island aren’t from there but rather come from elsewhere to work in one of the resorts.
Luxury Travel to Koh Kood
Koh Kood doesn’t receive that many backpackers. A lot of the visitors to the island come to stay at one of the luxury residents, including the very expensive and very luxurious Soneva Kiri resort where rooms can cost over $1,500 a night. For a real luxury experience guests at Soneva Kiri can book a transfer to the resort in an 8 seat plane from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.
As well as very expensive resorts, Koh Kood has more basic accommodation available and the island can also be enjoyed by those on a small budget. Food and drink prices are more expensive than they are the mainland, which is unsurprising as Koh Kood is in a fairly remote location making it more costly to bring in food and drink.
Facilities on Koh Kood
Compared to islands such as Koh Phangan, the facilities on Koh Kood are fairly basic and most visitors will rely on their resort to cater for everything they need during their time on the island.
Koh Kood has two main settlements, Ao Salut in the north of the island and Ao Yai is the south east. Neither settlement has more than 300 inhabitants and bot have a very basic range of shops.

Koh Kood isn’t the most remote and underdeveloped island in Thailand, but visitors are advised to plan in advance so that bring everything with them that they might need, particularly medicine and any electronic equipment.
