We never stayed in this place, however we stop by in the restaurant. Prices are quite affordable, quality of the food is great. But the most incredible thing is an amazing ocean view. There is a quiet little harbor down the stairs of the restaurant with pleasant shallow white sand. Since there are no sewage or any other water flowing...

My boyfriend and I stayed in Crystal Bay last November and when we opened our bedroom door we were amazed that all we could see was sea. The beautiful private beach and amazing views made up for the basic rooms but for the price it was definitely a great deal.

Beautiful small and intimate beach. Perfectly fit into natural surroundings. A view from Crystal bay restaurant is magnificent. It is quiet and cossy place where you feel like you are in meditation center 😊. I really recommend it.

In my opinion, Crystal Bay is the BEST beach in Koh Samui (and probably in wholeThailand, excluding Maya beach of course). The hotel is clean, comfortable and perfectly located on the rocks above the beach. It's quiet, the staff is polite and friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing. On the down side the pool is small...but who needs a pool when...

The rooms were pretty different from the ones in the website photos. Some rooms you don't have wifi, for the signal is too weak.all nighti heard a noise that came from a generator. Don't let the pictures fool you, the view will always include people wandering around the restaurant balcony, who can See you as well. Breakfast was horrible.

Thank you for your feedback. All rooms are the same as shown in the pictures on our website. Obviously there are some minor differences but the pictures are accurate.

Crystal bay is beautiful, it is situated between the busy beaches at Lamai and Cheweng that are crowded and covered in sun loungers. Crystal Bay was quiet the whole week we were there, we were able to chill out on the sand and have dip into the warm shallow waters in peace. The hotel claims the beach is private however...

Had an incredible time here with my partner for a romantic trip from Australia. Stayed for 5 nights in a medium-range room and everything about our stay was perfect. The room was beautiful, the balcony gave a stunning view of the bay, and the pool was just divine - perfect for sipping on a cocktail and lazing the day away....

We stayed in the deluxe beach view for 2 days, and it was just perfect! The view was amazing, the room was big and clean, the pool was ok, and the beach is incredible!
