We booked this hotel as the last part of our fabulous adventure in Thailand. We booked the beachfront villa a few months ago and it said it had a bathtub outside on balcony so we imagined something breathtaking. When we arrived we were told a new owner took over and got rid of the outdoor tub and computers in the... More

Once again I would like to thank you for being so understanding that some of the facilities you booked were not available. We have made many upgrades since taking over the resort and that included changing some of the facilities in the rooms. I am so glad you loved the free upgrade to our pool villa - you were one...

Thank you for your very detailed review! We actually just invested in some new sun beds so there are many more places to lounge around the pool and beach now, there should be much less of an issue with people 'reserving' beds now. Regarding water pressure, it is already very good in some rooms and where it is not perfect... More

We spent two weeks at the Yacht Club over the New Year. The bungalow was nice , slightly quirky from the point of view that the "Wardrobe" was made of wooden sticks, open to view from the main room - BUT this did mean that our clothes were able to breathe, so didn't get at all musty or damp despite...

We stayed one night at the Crystal Bay Yacht Club on our way back to Bangkok from Koh Phangnan. We had originally booked a beach view bungalow but because of overbooking, we were upgraded to what was referred to as the poolside bungalow - which would probably be better described as a cliff side bungalow since it was set upon...

The restaurant, bar and kitchen is under repair and modernisation. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The cove is beautifully quiet and peaceful. Sadly rubbish does float onto the shore from elsewhere but the hotel staff react quickly early morning and clear the beach. This, I understand, is a growing problem for all Thailand beaches. The rooms are clean... More

My partner and I have just spent 5 peaceful and idyllic nights at the Crystal Bay Yacht Club. I can now understand why some reviewers came for a few days and stayed for a month or more.
