Amazing nature-inspired resort!!!! ”

Beautiful hut-style room and very helpful, friendly staff

i loved this resort so much, i will definitely recommend it to all of you and my friends. entering the resort was a nice surprise, lush trees and greenery everywhere. being on ko samui, it was nice to get away from the "modern" style of rooms we had seen in bangkok; coral bay resort used a theme which complemented the island which it was situated on. just walking through the resort, to our room after day outings/dinners was enjoyable, there is so much to see on the resort! staff were very helpful and the little touches made the difference in our stay! i remember after the maids cleaned our room we saw tropical flowers beside the bed which was delightful. the location is prime in respect to a beach view. however, the stretch of beach behind the resort is difficult to swim in, there is a good amount of shells, debris and seaweed in the shallow waters. you want the main beach which is down a bit further along the coast line. dinner is close by, only a 5 minute walk down the road. oh and if you are not a lover of futon-style (very firm) mattresses, then their bedding may be a problem for you. overall coral bay resort is a sight to see in itself, and a very enjoyable place to reside on ko samui.

gorgeous resort with oversized Thai style villas”

stunning room with attention to colourful Thai detail

loved this gorgeous resort. one of the best we have seen on our month in Thailand. close to the airport, only 5 min cab ride. did not hear planes at all. beach very rough and small. views lovely however. Pool lovely. bar and restaurant with seaview a wonderful spot. villas were huge with a double bed PLUS a Thai sofa large enough for an adult if three. we really enjoyed the location and wish we had more than one night on Samui. we would for sure go back to Coral Bay Resort.

Privacy in the heart of everything.”

Private, large bungalow, close to restaurants, bars and shopping.

We had never been to Samui before so were not 100 per cent sure what area to stay in, so initially we were staying on the north coast, which while nice was just too far away from Chaweng beach - where everything is and where everything happens. So we left our original accommodation to enjoy a night in Chaweng and the second we saw Coral Bay we were thrilled. Beautiful spacious Bungalow with lovely decor. Nice bathroom, and a huge balcony, we did not have an ocean view but it didnt matter as the whole resort is littered with beautiful trees. We didnt eat at the resort but certainly drank at the bar which was also really nice, with some couches to lounge on and it backs right onto the beach. A really terrific restaurant close to some of samui's more beautiful restaurants and bars, tuk tuk may be needed but not necessary. Due to too big a sleep in I missed breakfast but my partner informed me it was to die for. I was not happy.

très belle emplacement et bungalows”

c est, de loin, le plus beau bungalows que nous ayons eu en Thaïlande. on nous a upgradé en beach front bungalows a notre arrivée, nous étions super contents, au passage la personne a l accueil est d une gentillesse et d une serviabilité exemplaire. le petit déjeuné est correct et a volonté. Le jardin tropical est superbe et on est à peine à 3 min en scooter de Chaweng donc ideal pour ne pas habiter dans la cohue. concernant la plage, il y a un seul hic, juste devant l hotel, il y a beaucoup de coraux et rochers, donc pas ideal pour se baigner, mais, si vous marcher 50 mètres sur la droite ou la guauche, la y a pas de soucis; la baie ne s appelle pas coral bay pour rien.. il y a une île juste en face de l hôtel, vous pourrez louer un canoë pour y aller et profiter de sa plage déserte et mieux observer les coraux de la baie également. On a trouvé dommage que le spa de l hôtel soit fermé, définitivement, d après l était des locaux dédiés.. les hôtels a proximité ont tous des masseuse directement sur la plage, donc au pire, vous pouvez aller sur la plage vous en faire faire un ( à 50 m sur la droite ou la gauche de nouveau) Nous étions presque toujours seuls à la piscine, qui est grande des linges sont a disposition a la plage et a la piscine, ce qui est très agréable. Nous avons apprécié notre séjour.

Sweet and helpful staff!”

I stayed with a friend at Coral Bay Resort for a 3 day weekend getaway and were impressed with everything about the place. The bungalows are placed in a beautifyl tropical garden area and you sleep to the sound of frogs and cicadas chirping away. The staff is super helpful and will assist with anything be it arranging day trips, finding means of transportation or recommending restaurants. The bungalows have a beautiful authentic look and feel to them, resulting in a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast is great, but the location of the hotel means it is a little bit of a hazzle getting to downtown as you have to get a taxi.

This is paradise in paradise. Fantastic”

Large size bungalow, large bathroom and short walk to the beach

We stayed at Coral Bay from 30th March for 3 Days (should have been longer). It is really a lovely place. My wife called it paradise in paradise. Accommodation is in the form of spacious and independent wooden bungalows. It has a massive bed, hard, but the most comfortable sleep I've had in years. A great bathroom with skylights, the shower is like a mini waterfall and plants growing in the corner. The bungalows are located in a tropical garden that gives each bungalow its individual privacy. Breakfast was quite good. The beach was just a couple of minutes walk from our bungalow. Only negative, rocks and coral directly in front of resort and must be careful of the sea urchins, very painful if stood on. Good sand banks 20 metres left and right of resort for swimming.

Favourite hotel, such helpful staff”

Bungalows, staff, peaceful

We absolutely loved Coral Bay and wished we had stayed here for the entirety of our stay in Samui, we were here for 2 nights. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff. This hotel was all separated bungalows which were large and had a great island feel to them. It was right near the beach although the beach wasn't that great for swimming in. It was lovely and quiet. Some people say it was walking distance however we got taxis into town each time for about 200 Baht...would recommend to everyone and will be back when I get back to Samui one day!

Great value in an otherwise overpriced market”

Location, service, big rooms on a nice beach

While the hotel is one of the older hotels in Samui and its tropical beach style not the latest in hotel architecture it is truly a hidden gem and great value in the Samui hotel market. Very nice beach and pool area, close to Chaweng while at enough of a distance to avoid the noise and crowds. Rooms are very large and comfortable and it's all set in a nice beach garden setting with plenty of space and privacy. Service is solid, food is great and they also have a very nice spa.

Separate little villas, space, large rooms, great food

this was a fantastic place to come with a family, but for any traveller it would be great. the rooms a well kept and large. we had a large deck that looked out to the sea. there is a private beach here that has space to spread out, away from the hustle and bustle and crowded beaches in the middle of chaweng. great service from all the people and there was an excellent breakfast each morning. eating dinner here was excellent as well. this place is spacious and well situated across the full length of the beach, rather than jammed into one small area like most resorts. we cannot recommend this place more highly.

Cosy hotel with back-to-nature feel”

Spacious room

We enjoyed our 3 day stay at the Coral Bay. Breakfast array was wide enough. The rooms were clean and spacious. Though you will need to be vigilant about keeping the doors closed all the time to prevent mosquitoes from entering during dawn and dusk. Staff were friendly. The beach front had ample space for children to run around and the fine sand was suitable for toddlers. Unlike some of the hotels further down Chaweng beach which had no beach front and required one to start wading in the water right away. This beach was gradual and the water was shallow for many metres. Not as suitable for swimming though. The pool was hardly used as it was tucked away from the beach but there's also a small wading pool for children. A little dirty with insects but the staff do make it a point to clean the pool daily.

Large beautiful rooms with great deck, tasty breakfast and restaurant

my boyfriend and i had been backpacking around asia for 2 months and so decided to treat ourselves with a nice room on our last night. this place was perfect!! the room was large, clean, and beautifully decorated. the bathroom was huge and unbelievably gorgeous with a large waterfall shower. my favorite part though was the deck with loungers, a couple chairs, and a table. the resort itself was beautiful, trees all around and with lush gardens. we spent most of our days near the pool which was large and had comfy pool chairs all around. the restaurant food was also delicious!! the service was wonderful as well, the hotel allowed us to check in at 9 am and checkout at 3 pm the next day with only one night charge. the movie selection was massive and we borrowed a couple to enjoy in the room. overall, great spot.

This place was great 20 years ago”

However since then there has been little to no upgrades. Everything from the pool to the sheets to the TV is very old and it shows. The place must have been awesome back in the late 90s however now it is a dying resort with an owner that wants to extract every bhat they can and not put a single one back into the place. If you do decide to stay here be very very careful of the showers. The ancient hof water system they use has no cold water mixing function and initially comes out scalding hot. You could seriously cook an egg with it. The bed is firm, very firm. The bungalows as a whole are pretty cool, just very outdated. Don't even bother trying to swim in the beach out back unless you are wearing adequate footwear as it is filled with sharp corals, hence the name Coral Bay Resort. The pool is a joke. It looks great in their photo but definitely not in person. All the loungers are old and dirty. The grounds are pretty nice with lots of plants, however they really need a crew of workers to take care of it and they don't have them , and it shows. It's a shame because it could be awesome if the owner actually cared. The problem is, this place is a dinosaur and there are so many other new resorts to compete against. I was hesitant to leave this honest review because the staff are very kind and friendly and I give them 5 stars for dealing with this place.

i spent lovely 11 nights with my parents in this amazing resort. it really feels like you are in the different world of fairy tale. you are far far away from the busy and stressful life, from the noizy and crowded world. here in this resort you find peas and relax. the bungalows are very specious, clean and very well decorated. it is wooden made and the roof is made from outantic coconut leafs. you can hear bird singing and froggs during the night. after the sun set the resort and all little lanes between bungalows covered with green bushes and flowers are lighted up with little lights which gives the magic atmosphere. it is one word 'amazing'. the resort has outstanding restaurant on the beach in typical thay stile, with amazing romantic atmosphere, beautiful music an even better cuisine. only the minus in this resort is the sfaff working there. the waiting staff in the restaurant very unfriendly and grumpy, sometimes even rude. the receptionist doesnt speak english very well and there is no one who can help you with your quaries about the island itself if you need any typs or advices. if you are looking for the more busy place with more sights of life, then only short distance (drive 5 minutes, walk 20 minutes) you can get to chaveng beach, where there is a busy city with very busy night life. there are many different restaurants and shops, many night clubs and bars. very very busy during the night and i was there in low season.
