We have been there while we where visiting Koh Samui. This was just for lunch. We had a very good crab salad and a good red curry. The location is perfect, in front of the sea with one of the nicest bay in Koh Samui. Prices are probably a little bit more expensive than elsewhere in Samui but it's worth.

Highly recommended for calm vacation. Seaside villas are amazing and stuff is super nice. We've stayed at the end of November and were lucky with waiting, it was raining couple of days non-stop, so watch out.

Stayed here for the night with my partber and we really enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff at reception to greet us. The location is 5km from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng so its super relaxed and quiet. The rooms were huge.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Unfortunately it was rainy and windy. We could not enjoy the beach. But the beach is very beautiful. The room was good but basic. The bathroom was not useful. The bed was comfortable and the room was big enough. The breakfast was not sufficient. The staff was not so helpful but not...

Thank you for the feedback, I am very sorry for the bad weather during your stay. We do offer entertainment every week with live music in our restaurant. Lamai is only a short drive away, but yes it is not recommended to walk there on the road at night.

We've just visit Tailand in the end of January, and we went to Lamai Beach to stay. Crystal Bay Yacht Club as everything you need on site! A nice restaurant that is open from breakfast to dinner, and you can even get some drinks and meals during lunch and all afternoon! It has private sunbeds facing the sea, just by...

Amazing location for this hotel one of the prettiest beach of the island. However, the price you pay is crazy in comparison of the level of service you will get. Rooms are OK, very big in size but therefore quite empty. Bed is comfy but looks very fragile. The bathroom is big but useless, you won't be willing to use...

I am very sorry for your poor experience at our resort, the very bad storms we had (worst in 10 years) during your stay really affected the holidays of many of our customers and I am very sorry about that. The storms bought alot of rubbish into the bay and our staff could simply not cope with it. You stayed...

Having visited the island many times I always try somewhere new and Chrystal Bay Yacht Club is a hidden gem nestling on arguably the best beach on Koh Samui. This trip was not the best due to the unexpectedly late rains but the manager Jordi and all his staff were so friendly and helpful.

We spent 7 days at Crystal Bay Yacht Club in february - the standard is overall good, clean bungalows and no annoying sellers at the beach. The breakfast could be bigger and better, but always fresh and tasty. The resort is located between Chaweng and Lamai, creating a quiet and relaxing atmosphere - away from the chaos, bars and tourist...

Most beautiful spot, and beach fabulous. Really clear water. But bit of advice, take plastic shoes. There are some great rocks to climb, and some shallow waters that had small rocks. The yacht club was nice. Food, cocktails and service first class. Sun loungers though were a let down. Though understandable after all the bad weather a few weeks ago.
