My husband and I spent a month travelling around Thailand, we decided that we would like to spend a night on a quiet Island to relax before our journey home, after visiting Koh Phi Phi we wanted an Island that wouldn`t take as long to reach, so we opted for Coral Island, and chartered a speed boat to take us there. The journey took about 15 mis and cost £40.00 return for both of us, which we thought was really good value.We arrived early after a welcome drink we were taken to our beach front bungalow, yes if you looK closely you`ll notice they are a bit tired, but why look closely inside the room when the Island is so beautiful, the room was basic but bright and clean, the bathroom was fine and the shower was hot, it had a mini bar offering tea, coffee, soft drinks, and alcoholic drinks, all with reasonable rates, each room has two deckchairs which you can take onto the beach and there is also a little table and chairs just outside, at 16:00 you are served to your room a pot of coffee and some local desserts, a lovely touch. The beach is simply stunning, we snorkelled for hours and saw a huge array of fish, the sea is crystal clear. My husband had a thai massage while looking out over the beach, and at about £8.00 good value. We had lunch which was lovely and for the two of us cost about £15.00 including a few drinks, we opted for the buffet for dinner, it was ok considering it only cost about £5.00 per person, although lunch off the main menu was much tastier, but you don`t have to opt for the buffet. Its difficult to complain when the setting is so perfect, and the cocktails are fab! The breakfast again was buffet and not of the highest quality, but the service was great. The staff were all friendly and we were really pleased that there was quick internet connection. There is also a swimming pool set back from the beach front. This is a place to relax in beautiful surroundings, after a manic time spent travelling around it was just what we wanted, its a perfect place to read, snorkel and unwind, although I don`t think its ideal for young teenagers as there may not be enough to entertain them, and maybe a week would be long enough of pure relaxation.
This its certainly a really romantic place to visit, perfect for couples and people on honeymoon.
Although we only stayed one night we stayed until late in the day before returning to Phuket as we had an early flight the following morning, if we had stayed earlier in our trip we would have extended our stay by a few nights.
