First off, we are two Girls in their late 20s from the states who were looking for a place to stay that was away from the craziness but close enough to join the crazies when we wanted! ;) We arrived and were immediately greeted and upgraded by Diego (who is super awesome, so helpful, speaks great english if that helps...

Stayed here four nights - booked online direct to get better rates. Hired one Grand Seaview Deluxe Room (which had an outstanding view) and one Standard Room (which had no view). Most rooms in the hotel appeared to enjoy good sea views. The rooms were spotless, everything looked modern and clean and the rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast was superb.... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Crystal Bay Beach Resort for 5 nights on our visit to Thailand (July 2014) What a gem! We were a group of 8 people and the different accommodation options were very affordable and suitable to what everyone wanted. The staff (especially Diego) always had a smile on their faces. It was lovely... More

My husband and I stayed here last year and couldn't wait to get back. Our room was pure magic - spacious with beautiful cool marble tiles, lovely deck, stunning stunning views, excellent air conditioner, and beautifully clean. Excellent free WiFi. Restaurant - Not a great breakfast selection and the portions aren't very generous. We ate out each night. Staff are... More

I wrote a glowing review in 2013 and no disappointments in 2014! I have stayed at a few resorts on Samui - some rooms with jacuzzis, some with private pools - but Crystal Bay beats them all for me. I don't much like locations with miles of featureless beach. Crystal Bay is a beautiful, safe and interesting bay with ever... More

On arrival at Crystal Bay Resort, we were asked immediately for payment of airport pickup however I prepaid for room and transport beforehand. I had email and bank statement proof however was told they only charge for room beforehand even though I had proof which he didn't want to see. We then had to pay again. Then upon checking out...

I would like to apologise to you on behalf of the resort . In general we get very positive feedback and we always investigate when we get negative reviews. I think the problem arose from a misunderstanding around the booking terms. Our rooms are sold on various online travel agents and through our own website and their are different processes... More

We rather stupidly only stayed at Crystal Bay for one night. Had we not booked our onward journey to Koh Phangan for the next day, we would definitely have stayed much longer. The room we had was decent enough, I think we had a fairly standard room and it had all you would want/need and was very large. The decor... More

Thanks for your great review. I'm glad you agree that we are located on a truly stunning beach! We offer a variety of rooms to suit many budgets and for those who prefer to spend their time on the beach rather than in the room than our economy and standard rooms are definitely recommended. More

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, where do I start? First of all the location is absolutely stunning, no doubt located on the nicest beach in Samui. Secondly the staff here are brilliant, Diego deserves a mention in particular, he made our holiday a lot better than it would have been by recommending some great local spots and generally... More

We stayed at Crystal Bay for 9 nights and couldn't be happier with our choice. Crystal Bay is located on a superb little secluded beach called Silver Bay which is about a mile away from Lamai and a couple of miles from Chaweng, which was perfect really as it offers a great opportunity to explore either. The hotel has a... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. The hotel is situated in a quiet bay which is absolutely stunning... By far the best beach I visited on Samui. Clear waters and white sand. Perfect. The rooms were clean and equipped with everything I needed. The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful, especially Diego. Only a... More
