What a great place this was to stay! We had an ocean view room with our own little balcony and boy were the views fantastic. The sea was right at our door step with warm water and white sandy beaches. Absolutely perfect! The service was all that we could ask for and more, and the restaurant was perfect with a...

This place has a wicked view of silver Beach (delux room with sea view). Compared to le meridien,You can walk outside of your door and jump into the ocean. Not to mention free breakfast for the fraction of the price. Great place for backpackers!

I stayed here for a week, looking for a quiet getaway. This was perfect. Far enough away from the bustle of both Chewang and Lamai, but close enough if I wanted it. The room was very clean with a great view and a good shower. While I was there the kitchen was being refurbished so I had to eat at...

We came here after our stay at Ark Bar on Chaweng and it was paradise in comparison. The breakfast buffet was good, but you have to wake up early or the selection will be somewhat poor. The room was very spacious, I would suggest leaving your sandals by the door to not bring in too much sand as the room...

Thanks for your review. Yes, we are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng. We do advise customers to be very careful riding motorbikes and we recommend then to hire from the front desk where we only use reputable companys.

Nice hotel with beautiful view. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is very poor. Food in the hotel restaurant is not so good. You can try burger but do not try "dinner menu" - trust me.

Stopped here when out on the mopeds one day and what a beautiful find. The resort bar was nestled up overlooking the crystal clear bay with exceptional views. Defo worth a stop on your travels. Nice looking small pool overlooking the ocean too and a real sun trap

We are a family with one 12 year old son and we visited in March for 7 days, having been unable to book our usual hotel. We liked Crystal Bay because of the web cam and the nice chilled feel it had when we visited last year so we thought we would go for it. We booked the Terrace room...

Thanks for your lovely detailed review. Glad to hear that you made use of our webcam to check our the beach before you booked. It has also become popular with former guests who miss the beach!

Visited in March 2015 and stayed for a week. Very lovely place, perfect beach (of course relatively dirty, like all Thai beaches), but excellent for Samui. The place has a French or Italian Riviera atmosphere, nice music. Great views of the sea and the moon. Good for relaxing, if you like not to be disturbed. Great place to work also...

Nice quiet beach between bedlam. The hotel is only average if not a little overpriced but the beach is nice and at night you hear the waves not the constant thumping of Happy Hour style hangouts. Relaxed and more layed back than you would think in this popular tourist area.

Hi, thanks for the review. You actually made a mistake this review should be for our other resort on the same beach: Crystal Bay Yacht Club and Rock Salt Restaurant. Thanks
