Welcome to Thaidaho Vista: a small and intimate, quaint and affordable island retreat—with a Million Dollar View!

Perched atop Koh Mak’s highest hill, Thaidaho Vista may be Thailand’s only true “non-smoking” vacation retreat.  Add to this our ongoing commitment to sustainability, and you have a uniquely fun, clean, green, eco and health-friendly escape for families, friends, small groups, couples and single travelers.

Come enjoy one of Thailand’s last remaining unspoiled islands—and help us keep it that way!

Open seasonally from November through April: Thaidaho Vista Resort offers just four rooms that range in price from 1000 to 2500 baht per night.  We have nightly rates, long-stay (14 days) rates, monthly rates, off-season rates and fringe season rates; email for details and personal quotes.  You won’t find us on any of the big booking websites!

Kat’s Coffee Shop is open to everyone on Koh Mak; and serves the island’s only real Northern Thai Coffee—purchased directly from Thai farmers by one of Kat’s friends—then roasted in Bangkok before being sent to Kat on Koh Mak.  On top of everything else, Kat is a certified barista who makes all of her own hot and cold drinks fresh to order.

With both indoor and outside seating, the Vista Café serves “cooked-to-order” western breakfasts, and light western & Thai lunches.  We also have an assortment of soft drinks, fruit smoothies, yogurt lassi’s, beer, and a full old fashioned ice cream fountain.  We are not currently serving dinner at Vista—choosing instead to encourage patronage of the island’s many great Thai eateries.
