A paradise for couples as well as for families. Our family of three visited this wonderful place for the fifth time this February. The first year, our daughter was five years old and we booked a stay for five weeks at this one single place. We made this decision based on the beautiful understanding and clear responses we received via email to our innumerable questions. Still, we had some worries: would it work without a pool when our daughter yet couldn’t swim? Would our daughter eat the food? Would we start to get restless? But oh, how our decision to land at this resort for rest and adventure paid off! We didn’t miss a pool one moment. On the contrary, the place feels more restful without it. The nice long shallow sea bay is a fantastic asset for a family with children. Our daughter took her first swims between us right here. During our five stays here, with a total of 140 days, we have only been troubled by sandflies during a total of three days. And ah, the food…, the food is delicious. This restaurant has without a doubt the best and, at the same time, the most affordable food on the island. The chef, together with her team, creates amazing, tasty, and exquisitely beautiful expressions of genuine Thai cuisine. Also, you never hear a harsh or stressful word from the kitchen even when the guests are many and the orders pile up. The chef consistently creates a kind and supportive vibrations for her co-workers. The kitchen also has western dishes on the menu, and if you ask for thin "Swedish pancakes", you may have them. For the last years, we have had all our meals at their restaurant - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Actually, the food plays a large part in the kind of support and care that sustains us throughout the vacation. As for restlessness, this turned out to also not be a problem. The place invites us to find calm together with nature. We usually borrow one of the kayaks provided free of charge to go on daily small expeditions in this tropical paradise. The quiet bay is enclosed by two small islands with nice beaches, and around the islands there are easily accessible coral reefs for snorkelling (snorkelling gear is provided free of charge). The water is a little more still (smaller waves) on these beaches which allows for play and exploration, should the smaller children like that. There is also another beach to the left in the bay with long shallow water. A couple of times per stay we book an activity with the place's local guide. Safari tour, jungle trekking, visiting bat caves or boat trip to large coral reefs, to name a few. When evening and night falls, you are only surrounded with the sound of breaking waves, birds and insects. This allows for deeply restorative sleep. Regarding the label “Eco”, that is clearly not only for show. The family that owns the resort grows most of the vegetables and fruits served at the resort. They pick coconuts on the island and prepares them to get coconut milk for to boil sticky rice, and even to produce their own coconut oil which is used by the masseuse and for frying in the kitchen. They prepare their homemade tamarind sauce as well as marmalades for breakfast. They even grow and pick roses in order to make their own soap and shampoo for all the houses at the resort. This part of the island still doesn’t have electricity, but they have solar panels to give the necessary service. There are fans in the bungalows, but we never use them since the architecture allows for the soft warm wind to blow right through the house. Remarkable! Finally, it must be mentioned that the service is exceptional. The kind hearts of the owners are easily noticed. They take good care of the staff, the nature and the guests. We have already booked for the next year. / The Carlsson family

This was our second visit to Moken Eco Village, with my family and three kids and we think that this is possibly one of our favourite places in the world!! The beach, the bay, the perfect position of the islands, the clear water, the soft sand, the whispering of the sea pines, the sunsets - it is just paradise! The huts are very tastefully interspersed between the trees, so that they cannot be seen from the water but that each balcony has a view of the sea. They are large, comfortable and simply but stylishly decorated. They are cleaned every day and are cool with natural breezes and fans. There are beach loungers with gorgeous white fabric curtains to create shade which are perfect for whiling away hours. There are kayaks, paddle boards and snorkels free to use, to explore the surrounding islands. We also did a great tour to a further afield island for snorkelling and did a rainforest trek - super experience. The food is delicious and there is a wide choice on the menu. The breakfast is varied and very well managed. The whole team are incredibly friendly, kind and engaging and spent hours hanging out with our kids and entertaining them with stories and games. Pam was incredibly helpful in making any arrangements we needed. There was a lovely vibe amongst all the staff, giving the feel that they are all part of one big family. Some people might find the lack of wifi and plug sockets in the rooms (only USB chargers) an inconvenience. We spent a heavenly eleven days here and hope to return again - a perfect reset! Thank you Team Moken!
