At the Northern end of Sairee Beach, yet within five minutes walk of Sairee Village, the Coral Grand is an oasis of calm and cleanliness compared to the rather tacky and run down shacks that line the two mile long beach to Mae Head. There is a good dive center on site and the beach in front of the resort is spotless. Breakfast is good and copious, but the flies can be bad so move to a table on the beach. Lunch and dinner menu are average - as is the price. Longtail boats can be rented at the beach for $40 a day to go swimming or snorkeling around the island. Motorbikes are $6 a day - but apart from the main road to Mae Head the other roads are steep and treacherous unless you are a dirt bike rider. Negatives: The swimming pool is smallish and most of the time it's full of divers in training. The cabins although very clean are showing their age. Only two of the cottages are truly beachfront, the rest are packed rather too closely together and have no view. The bathroom is four steps down from the room is pretty basic and lacks hot water - except for an electric heater that provides a tepid shower. Mosquitoes are bad for half an hour at sunset. Burn a coil or spray your room - there are cracks in the floorboards and around the windows where they can get in. Positives: Coral Grand appears to be the only place on Sairee beach that has umbrellas and loungers. Relax with a Thai massage ($10) on the beach. The room AC unit was silent and effective. Minibar and TV worked ( CNN & HBO). Free wifi around the reception desk. I booked on line and found the staff very efficient and helpful arranging the ground and ferry transportation from Samui. Room prices are very high for what you get by Thai standards. We took a beachfront cottage #301 which was 50% extra – but I'm glad we did.
