HANGING OUT HERE
Being in paradise doesn’t mean being bored! On site is a fresh water swimming pool (with children’s section) overlooking the sea, plus ping pong and beach volleyball. The coral reef in the bay offers good snorkeling, fishing and shelling. The tiny island of Koh Matlang opposite the resort has an adjacent reef and is accessible by short long-tail boat or at low tide, by wading. Snorkeling equipment and kayaks are available for rent, as are jeeps and motorbikes. Windsurfers, para-sailers, scooters and jet skis can be rented on the main part of nearby Chaweng beach.
Our Internet workstation at the lobby is available for guests in need of their daily email fix, while those who have brought along their Wi-Fi enabled notebooks can plug in at the lobby, restaurant and swimming pool if they are away from their rooms.
EATS AND DRINKS
Whether you’re a carnivore or a vegetarian, a bon vivant or a teetotaler, you’ll 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 don’t tone down the flavors to satisfy westernized notions of Thai cuisine…unless we’re 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’ll never feel enclosed, whether dining indoors or al fresco on the wooden deck. Sipping an exotic cocktail (shaken, never stirred) at the Coco-rock Beach Bar is an ideal way to celebrate the end of yet another perfect day at Coral Bay Resort.

Detox in the infrared sauna followed by a high pressure jet massage, then bliss out under the gentle care of our well-trained therapists. We take pride in using only the very best natural products to ensure that you benefit fully from each treatment with no possibility of an allergic reaction. Consult our Spa Manager, who is also a registered nurse, to choose a therapy to suit your needs or have a package custom-designed for you. Whatever your choice, we aim to de-stress, detoxify, soothe away your aches and pains, rejuvenate and elevate your sense of well-being. Go ahead, make your day! Give your body the treat it deserves
