We stayed here for our last two nights in Thailand. The resort is beautiful and next to a private beach. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. It's a bit far from the main beaches. So if you're looking for a quiet area this is the place to be. Recommend it!

This year we thought we would return to Thailand, although for the last few years we have been staying in 5* luxury AI caribbean resorts so we had a little shock to start with ! On arrival we was a little disappointed that the hotel didn't really look like the pictures! We arrived early and was allocated a room before...

Waking up with a stunning view on the Gulf of Thailand with Chaweng bathing in the morning sunlight and in the back the silhouette of Ko Phangan is simply breathtaking. Best way to spend your vacation

I stayed In a garden cottage for five nights and we were more than happy with our stay - I'd love to come back some day. Pool area was really nice and the restaurant was just excellent; god service and really good food. The beach was also nice, some stones at the bottom so bathing shoes helped, with a small...

We had a Beachfront Villa which was large, well equiped, clean with a good size bathroom and great shower. Nice towels and no complaints about the room at all. A large patio and sunbeds looking out to the beach and sea idyllic. However there are things about this place that need looking at. Firstly reception, not friendly like other places...

We stayed at Crystal Bay Yatch Club Beach Front Villa from 17-19 June. The room, though simple, was clean and spacious. And it came with a big refrigerator for us to stock up our food. It is all about the beach here. Soft powdery sand with shimmering crystal clear waters. It is a lovely place to chill and relax. Massage...

Thank you for your review I am very glad you liked our pool villa. We took over the resort last year and we are slowly upgrading the whole resort. We have made many changes but as you point out there is still work to be done.

In a beautiful spot. Stayed in a Garden Villa. Although a bit dated, it was nice and clean. The staff were friendly and only too happy to help with whatever I needed. A very relaxed atmosphere, was a lovely secluded place to relax and recharge. Great value for money, will definitely be back.

Thank you for the great review. Our garden villas have not been updated to the standard of the other villas yet. At the moment we have kept them as a cheaper option. I am very glad you loved the relaxing atmosphere and hope you come back soon.

I'll be short because it is that simple: if you like a quiet, yet lively place, shallow crystal water bay surrounded by dramatic huge rocks and coconut trees, excellent food and top infrastructure - this is the place for you in koh samui. The location is perfect - hidden from the crowds, just 5-10 minutes drive from any worth-to-visit site...
