The Coral Bay resort is a good value for money and I recommend it to people who look for a quiet resort in natural setting within a budget.
I found the resort through TripAdvisor and I was not at all disappointed.
We spent 6 nights at this little paradise, enjoying every minute of our stay. The owner of this resort surely deserves a prize. You have a feeling that you are in the Garden of Eden here all surrounded by high palm trees and lush vegetation which become unbelievably beautiful when the sun sets and the lights go on.
The spacious bungalows are among these beautiful tropical gardens with all different colours of exotic flowers.
The bed was hard but we did not mind at all. It was huge and it reminded us a bit of the Flingstone’s cartoons!
The room’s décor was excellent and we were impressed by the waterfall shower in the bathroom.
Breakfast was decent with many exotic fruit, omelettes, and crepes. We found the restaurant expensive though and we were going out to the city every evening.
We did not use the swimming pool at all. The beautiful beach with some rocks on the side reminded me of a painting. There was a tide and the waters were not always so clear though but being in such an exotic paradise this was not a problem at all for us.
I had no idea that the hotel was so close to the airport and I paid 4 times the cost of a taxi just to be picked from the airport and driven to the resort. It is just a 5 minute drive from the airport. Preferably pick a taxi upon arrival.
If you want to eat cheaply and good try the local restaurant at the resort entrance. They are good people and we had lunch there twice.
I would recommend people visiting Samui to come to this hotel first and then book and spend more days in another hotel by the Chaweng Bay. It is really very different. The Coral Bay resort offers you this exotic paradise in a quiet and tranquil environment, while the other choice offers you a beautiful beach but in a noisy environment.
