Who we are...
Coral Bay Resort is designed for travelers in search of a relaxing and eco-friendly holiday experience.
The peaceful natural environment of Coral Bay Resort minimizes the stress of today urban lifestyle
and offers a welcome alternative to the crowded concrete establishments
that unfortunately are becoming all too prevalent on Koh Samui.
Our 56 bungalows are set amid 10 acres of lush tropical gardens, ensuring an atmosphere of serenity and privacy.
Surrounded by luxuriant coconut palms and flowering shrubs, the charming Samui-style dwellings built of wood
and stone with traditional thatched roofs offer the highest standards of comfort.
Since opening in 1982, we have worked hard to maintain the delicate balance between preserving the natural charm of Koh Samui while providing the amenities for our discerning guests. The abundant tropical flora creates a sanctuary for many species of birds, butterflies and squirrels.
Ever conscious of the environment, our swimming pools are 100% chlorine-free and we use recycled waste water to maintain the extensive gardens and new plants in our nursery.
The waste water is pretreated through stages of septic tanks, bio tanks and settlement tanks before filtering through a natural treatment system of media, aquatic flora / fauna and finally polished off with a protein skimmer which purifies the water further and convert harmful nitrates
into beneficial ones before it goes into our sprinkler system.
Where we are...
We are situated on Yai Noi Bay, north Chaweng Beach on the north eastern part of Koh Samui, about 10 minutes from the airport.
Our island style, thatched-roofed, wood and stone bungalows are spaced well apart
from one another and surrounded by a profusion of greenery to ensure maximum privacy.
Representing the ultimate value for money, each has a generous interior and a huge private balcony with plenty of comfy deck chairs and loungers,
cooled by sea breezes and ceiling fans. Commanding a view of extensive tropical gardens
or the sea it makes a perfect daytime or nighttimes hangout. Amenities for each bungalow include :

Contemporary design elements combine with the one of a kind interior
and exterior furnishings to create a uniquely elegant yet funky ambiance.
Each spacious bungalow comprises 75 m2 (including a large 25 m2 balcony),
with large bay windows, and is decorated with unusual furnishings handcrafted from indigenous Koh Samui materials.
For a family / party of three or more persons, we recommend one of our family bungalows
:: Deluxe Family ::
There are mosaic murals in some rooms, inlaid coconut shell and bamboo screens in others combined with original art pieces,
native fabrics and unique artifacts. The large airy bathroom boasts a small interior garden,
hammered stainless sink bowls and waterfall showers.
Newly renovated and set amidst lush tropical gardens toward the rear of the property,
the Deluxe Family bungalows are furnished in our signature funky-chic style and are perfect for a small family or several friends.
The 82 m2 two-bedroom units feature original furniture handcrafted from indigenous Koh Samui wood and locally produced fixtures and artwork.
The two sleeping areas are separated by the dressing foyer and bathroom. The front bedroom is suitable for parents,
while the two twin-sized beds and day bed in the rear bedroom are perfect for children.
The large airy bathroom boasts hammered stainless sink bowls and waterfall showers.
Each 20 m2 balcony looks out onto the gardens, some with vistas of the sea in the distance.
:: Premium Deluxe & Beachfront Premium Deluxe Family ::
Perfect for families or a group of friends, the original furniture, art pieces,
native fabrics and unique artifacts in these spacious bungalows create a rustic yet elegant feel.
Located towards the front of the property, these beachfront units are just steps away from the beach
while the higher units command breathtaking sea views. The 104 m2 bungalows are built like a duplex :
the two side-by-side-bedrooms with interconnecting doors share the large 30 m2 balcony, but have separate large and airy bathrooms.
:: Baan Chomjan Villa ::
The stunning Baan Chomjan Villa is located on one side of the resort,
close enough for easy access to the beach, pool and restaurants yet totally self-contained for those desiring greater solitude.
Offering uninterrupted vistas over a secluded bay, the luxurious Baan Chomjan Villa is aptly named 'moon-viewing house'.
The Thai word 'jan'(moon) also refers to the clusters of huge white moon flowers
that climb the trellis in front of the spacious and ultra-private villa and bloom only in the late afternoon.
Built of teak, local hardwoods, sandstone and slate, the villa embodies a simultaneously lavish yet earthy design,
redolent of an island-style country residence.
The 55 m2 master bedroom on the ground floor opens onto a spacious private terrace.
With its en-suite bathroom, chaise lounge, writing desk, and 29' cable TV,
the large airy space makes a perfect hideaway within the villa.
The room stays pleasantly cool either by using the air conditioner or in the cooler seasons,
by opening the sliding doors to let in the sea breezes. Upstairs,
each of the two 32 m2 bedrooms has a balcony, en-suite bathroom and a ceiling fan as well as air conditioner.
Ingeniously arrayed under a tall vaulted ceiling, the fully air conditioned open-plan living room,
den and kitchen/dining area offer maximum space and functionality.
The den has plenty of comfortable seating for reading or watching the 50 flat panel LCD TV with its surround-sound speaker system.
Web surfers can check emails on the computer workstation with an ADSL connection online all the time.
Wi-Fi is available from various access points in the villa (den, upstairs balcony, living and dining rooms and the terrace).
For those who prefer cooking at home, the European-style kitchen is fully equipped
with all major appliances including a 4-burner stove and oven, microwave as well as utensils and cutlery.
Although the hotel pool is only a few meters away, an added perk is the new 4m x 10m private 100% chlorine-free pool
for the exclusive use of Baan Chomjan and Baan Chomdao guests. Built on a raised concrete surface with a wooden deck,
it is surrounded by sandstone tiles and features a lava rock waterfall. Nearly hidden behind lush tropical trees and flowers,
the lap pool is sunny until noon and stays pleasantly cool and shady during the hot afternoons.
The built-in swim jet will provide a challenge for those in need of a serious workout.
RESTAURANT & BAR
The beautifully appointed Baan Chomjan is set apart in its own compound with private entrance and night time security.
The rate is inclusive of breakfast and tax for up to six persons. For an extra charge,
an additional two people can be accommodated by converting the two day beds in the den into single beds.
Those sleeping in the den can either share one of the upstairs en-suite bathrooms or use the guest toilet downstairs.
Baan Chomjan residents also have full use of all hotel facilities.
Eats and drinks ...
Whether you are a carnivore or a vegetarian, a bon vivant or a teetotaler,
you will find something to satisfy your needs on our extensive food and drink menu.
Our guests often say we serve the best Thai food on the island.
They appreciate that we do not tone down the flavors to satisfy westernized notions
of Thai cuisine unless we are specifically requested to do so.
Plus we use only the fresh coconut cream in our curries and cocktails.
(With nearly 200 coconut trees on site, why buy the canned stuff?) At the Pakarang (coral in Thai) restaurant,
you will never feel enclosed, whether dining indoors or al fresco on the wooden deck.
Sipping an exotic cocktail (shaken, never stirred) at the Coco-rockBeach Bar
is an ideal way to celebrate the end of yet another perfect day at Coral Bay Resort.
