Largely unexplored, much of Koh Kood island has never been seen by tourists before. The entire island has a relatively untouched Eco-System above and below the water. That fact by itself is a reason to visit, but is it Koh Kood or Ko Kut?
You may in find it slightly confusing, but in fact it is one and the same place. Some chose to spell it Ko Kut and others Koh Kood. So when you are looking for maps, directions, timetables etc, be aware that the place you are actually looking for is Away Koh Kood Resort!
