The East Thailand region
Rayong Province is best known for its pristine beaches stretching along its 100-kilometer coastline and its scenic waterfalls set amidst exotic surroundings.
Two and a half hours easy drive from Bangkok, Crystal Beach Condo is set on Wang Kaeow (Glass Palace) Beach, also known as Rim Pae beach. This palm-lined stretch is on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand in tropical Rayong province, renowned for its abundance of seafood, fruit forests, national parks, unspoilt beaches and nearby islands.
Soak up the relaxing atmosphere of the area, taking in the island views from the shade of the apartment's veranda, or ride a boat right to them while stopping off for some snorkeling or scuba diving along the way.
Golfers can find the championship layouts of Rayong Green Valley, Siam Country Club, Pattaya Country Club and another half dozen courses within 30 minutes drive, while scuba and snorkeling enthusiasts can explore coral reefs teeming with colorful fish at the nearby islands. For equestrians, a nearby stable welcomes visitors for outrides along the coast or supervised lessons within their compound, while the world-class aquarium at nearby Ban Phe village is an essential visit to familiarize with the local and commuting marine life, including giant sea turtles.
Nature lovers will especially enjoy the Khao Chamao-Khao Wong National Park with its maze of stalactite caves and multi-tiered waterfalls. The famous Suphatra Land orchard welcomes visitors with a tram ride around the fruit forest and an all-you-can-eat fest of fruits, and also boasts a popular on-site restaurant.
Mini buses ply by regularly during daylight hours, offering transportation to nearby villages for connections further afield. Ban Phe, the closest village, has fresh and super- markets, as well as a large number of vendors selling handicrafts and seafood products. A visit to the extremely well run aquarium there is a must, if only to become acquainted with your marine neighbors.
Ban Phe's markets sell seafood and all manner of ingredients, including a wide choice of Thai curry pastes for those who'd like to try their hand at Thai or any other styles of cooking, or there's a plethora of restaurants within a few minutes walk of Crystal Beach Condo serving all manner of cuisines from early morning until late at night.
In the opposite direction, toward Chak Pong, some of the best and cheapest seafood restaurants in the country sit on the Laem Mae Pim beach front. Around the corner is a memorial park honoring the royal poet Suthorn Phu, whose famous Phra Aphai Mani poems describe a fantastical world, where people of all races and religions live and interact together in harmony. His birthday is celebrated across the country on June 26.
Off the coast and seen from the apartment are the Koh Samet islands, a designated national park that can be easily reached by speed boat for excursions that can include scuba and snorkeling to enjoy the abundant marine life up close. Koh Man Nai, an island sea turtle-breeding sanctuary to the east, makes for a thrilling day trip, as does an outing to the amazing Khao Wong limestone caves or a zip-lining adventure across the forest canopy with Canopy Adventures at Kao Yai Da.
Closer to home, a range of restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and spas are as close as across the road or down the beach. The nearby Novotel Rim Pae's AQUAS health spa and beauty salon offer a host of pampering treatments, while more basic massage services are on offer along the beach.

What a fantastic condo and ideally situated! The accommodation has a warm friendly feel and obviously loved by the owners. Amazing views to the sea and Koh Samet. Great pool for kids ( ours are 5 and 2 1/2 years old) and adults too, then straight onto the beach, ideal.

With three bedrooms and ocean views, the condo is perfect for anyone looking for a relaxed beach getaway close to Bangkok. We are a family of four who appreciate being able to cook meals and have plenty of space for the kids. We also enjoy the large pool and beach access, as well as the low-key setting of this part of Rayong. We look forward to future visits!
