Great surrounding! Jul 18, 2012
We stayed in one of the huts up the hill. The view is stunning! The hut is provided with towels. Bathroom with cold water is OK, but I missed taking a hot shower. Both bed- and bathroom are clean. Fan above the bed and mosquito net is provided.

We ate at the restaurant several times and the food is fine. Not ‘haute cuisine’ but it was nice to ate some decent western food after two weeks Thai food.

Free WIFI is OK in the restaurant but in the huts it’s not working and in the beach area you get a signal that is working but not theirs I guess! ;)

You can hire some snorkeling gear. Do so or bring your own cause you can snorkel from the first step you take into the sea. Don’t forget your water sandals, otherwise it’s very, very painful to go in the sea here.

Fish are very, very beautiful (everywhere you look) but the coral is not that stunning. Most of it is dead. You have to go some further away from the beach, near the rocks to see nice coral. But perhaps I’m just spoiled cause I snorkelled in The Great Barrier Reef. ;)

You also can do a snorkel trip but - telling from their website - I thought it was with a boat from their place but you have to go on a tour for a day and go round the island to snorkel. We didn’t do that cause we didn’t want to do a day-tour again.

You can go diving also but we didn’t do that either.

There are a few beds on the beach but they really are worn out. And not that much so I think in high season it will be difficult to use one.

Pick-up from the pier was well organized and free. To go back you have to pay.

One minor: you can rent a safe for 2O baht (50 euro cent), quite cheap, isn’t it? But be prepared, every time you take something out of the safe, you have to put 2O baht in again. ☹

Overall if you want to relax away from the hustle of restaurants, bars and noise, come to this relaxing haven!

Exotic secluded bay Apr 07, 2012
Coral View resort and New heaven huts are the only resorts on Sai Deang beach close to Shark island. Coral View has a bar and restaurant where you can lounge and enjoy a view of the whole bay. The menu has Tai and western food. ON ther beach are comfortable beach chairs and umbrellas for shade. Other seats are in the garden. Free wi-fi is on the restaurant, bar and a little part of the beach. The resort also has a dive school, laundry service, taxi service car, snorkeling gear for rent, a super small shop, massages, tourist information and snorkeling trips, etc. Basically everything you need when you're on a secluded part of an island. If you want to have access to the rest of the island rent a bike with enough power! Uphill is very steep and the most part of the road is unpaved. The bungalows are relatively cheap in comparison with Sairee beach. They cost 900 baht. You have a choice of wooden bungalows or concrete bungalows, both with fan but without frills. It cools down at night though and mosquitos are in very small numbers. The bathroom is clean. The bungalows are set in a beautiful garden with seats all around. Views of the bay included. Snorkeling is a must here. The bay has huge shoals of fish and some black tip sharks. The bar really is a plus! Sipping cocktails while lounging with chill out music and overlooking the bay. It has a laidback feel.
