It is a pleasant and familiar place to make you feel at home and helps you enjoy Lipe, its environment, and its charming people. Why bamboo and wood?

This place has its unique charm. I ended up staying more than I planned, the place is just amazing and calm. For me Koh Lipe is without any doubt a dream Island I always wanted to stay on. Comfortable 7 bungalows are surrounded by plants and palms with fairy lights sparkling at the night time. Gipsy 2 is situated so well. Its Windy at night so there is not so many mosquitoes at the evenings. For a nice food , just at the Walking Street (2min walk) I really recommend the Thai Pancake shop. I will never forget my time in Gipsy 2 and next time im going to Koh Lipe this is the place where I want to to stay for sure. Pros: quiet central location (only 5 min to both beaches) Cool breeze under the trees Huge comfy kingsize beds Your own bathroom Lovely friendly owners from Barcelona Free beach towels and mats Your own Hammock in the porch Clean and safe Cons: WiFi only in the bar area and until around 9pm
Charming bungalows with amazing owners!”
this place is just off the walking street which makes it perfect. it only takes you 5 min to reach either sunrise or pattaya beach. the owners are two amazing people. after switching to another hotel because gipsy 2 was fully booked i still went there some evenings just to have à coffee or à beer and à chat! since it is built on à hill, you dont get all the noises and smells that you might get on other hotels! i told the owners and i promise you that the next time im going to koh lipe there is only one place where im going to stay and that is at gipsy 2 rivendell!
A lovely place in the middle of Lipe”
we loved everything about our stay at gipsy 2 rivendell. we had booked for 3 nights but ended up staying a month (until we had to go back home, otherwise we'd stayed longer...), which pretty much says it all. the bungalows are clean and simple and so nice, the whole place is very cozy, and it makes you feel like home - but on lipe, which is better. the couple that has the place are really sweet and they and their wonderful dogs made our stay the best. the location is good because it's in the middle of the walking street, but still quiet, so it's close to everything but also very calm and relaxing. we definitely recommend gipsy 2 and we want to return as soon as possible!
Cosy little village of bungalows”
We stayed three nights and really appreciated this peaceful place. He bungalow had everything we needed with shelves to put your stuff on, a comfortable bed and a really nice porch for evening hang-outs. Wifi comes and goes, but this is the case all over Koh Lipe according to people we met. Staff is welcoming, always win a friendly smile. Gipsy 2 is situated close to Walking street up on a hill, but still very quiet. The place was good-value. We can honestly recommend Gipsy 2 to other travellers.
perfect tropical budget chalet getaway”
stayed for 5 night. excellent services.warm welcome by the spanish couple, the owner of this so called bungalow. situated in quiet location,under the lust of tropical trees, the bungalow itself is cute, open-air bathroom with modern amenities. only five minutes walking to walking street but far enough from noisy bars and traffic.excellent seafood thai restaurant and massage parlour just 5 min away and all three beaches are 10 to 15 min walking. the island itself is not too big anyway. this place is perfect for budget traveler and for long term rental. its not beach front but be careful in koh lipe. beach front chalet is not worth the money for this range of accommodation. definitely will be back and stay at this bungalow again!! dun worry about the mosquitoes as the other wrote~ mosquitoes coil and net is provided and you can buy the repellant spray at walking street at a dirt cheap price and it work! i bought the organic lemongrass insect repellent spray. works for mosquitoes and sand flies.
Magic and peaceful place”
Good location, just less than one minute to the Walking Street, but quiet and relaxing place. In the middle of the island, just 5 minutes walking to Sunrise and Pattaya Beach. Our stay in Gipsy 2 was amazing, friendly place, the bungalow was clean and the bed really comfortable. Every bungalow has his own name, we stayed in Camp Nou, with pictures of the Barcelona Club, cool idea! Windy place at night so we didn't have mosquitoes, and the nights were fresh. The owner put candles and nice lights, every night, they called "candle time" and this makes the place really magic and creates good atmosphere. Just 7 bungalows. We fell like home. Worth every bath. We will come back.
A budget stay”
It is situated at Walking Street, near to Thai Lady Pancake. Be aware that there is another resort called "Gipsy" which is located at Sunrise Beach. Wood bungalow is enough for a couple to stay and it is clean. The friendly staff is ready to provide help whenever you need it. Hot water is provided in reception counter. Two towels, two soaps and a roll of toilet paper are provided once you check in. Check out by 11am. Snorkeling mask and swim fins can be borrowed from the staff. A lot mosquitoes especially at night. No water heater and water pressure is low. Wifi is ok but sometimes unstable especially when you're in the room. (Tips: The strongest wifi signal that I have found in Koh Lipe is in Bloom Bar, at Walking Street as well). Anyway I enjoyed my 3 nights at Gipsy 2 Bungalow. Will definitely come back if have next time. Enjoy!
Clean, comfortable, romantic & beautiful!”
Gipsy 2 is nothing short of spectacular. It's located in the heart of walking street, yet it's set back far enough that any noise won't bother you one bit. The accommodations were clean, the beds were beautifully comfortable, and the family who run the space is incredibly friendly and charming. We stayed in the Delux bungalow and the sunrise out our window each morning was stunning! Wouldn't have stayed anywhere else on the island. Two big thumbs up.
As long as you know what you are getting into (a little rustic), this place is amazing and a great deal on Koh lipe!! We loved the location right off the walking street and an easy walk to any of the beaches- very central! We loved our little bungalow and hanging out on the hammock on our porch, very private. The manager there is also amazing- so friendly and flexible, always making up our room everyday :) would definitely stay again!
good value budget bungalows with extra touches”
This tiny boutique resort is in a great position – 50m up a short lane from the highest part of Walking Street with its big array of restaurants, shops and other businesses - and less than 5 minutes stroll from Lipe’s 2 main beaches, Pattaya and Sunset (aka Andaman). The bamboo thatch and whitewashed stone bungalows go a step or two further. We are looking at lots of small artistic touches plus extras like multiple towels, incense sticks, mozzie coils + lighters and beach mats/sarongs on demand. Inside are paintings, wall hangings, lots of dark stained wood and whitewash, nicely tiled floors in the bath room which has hot water, not all that common in bungalows of this price level. There is plenty of space for two people and their gear. The firmish double bed was comfy and the net a good one. The large veranda with hammock and chairs looked out on a garden setting although this contains a lot of bare earth. Main complaints were a lack of storage for luggage (the owners told me tables are on order) although there is plenty of small storage space; no wifi in rooms although free at reception; and the bungalows were a bit dark inside during daylight. Some people will complain about the lack of restaurants – but there is a vast array of very good value places nearby on Walking Street. The beachfront restaurants and sand bars with candles on mats are not too much further. One reviewer mentioned nearby bar noise but I could hear only distant music which was no means intrusive, and I’m a bit fussy in this respect. The young Spanish couple running Gipsy are friendly and obliging.
It’s fine for the money! ”
This place is perfectly located and one of the cheapest places to stay on the island... which is one of the most expensive islands in Thailand! Compared to other places we stayed during our trip around Thailand this was one of the most expensive and also the most basic places we have stayed which says a lot about Koh Lipe. The location is perfect (if you can’t find somewhere on the beach) - right on walking street but set back enough to not be bothered by the noise. As per the other reviews there are lots of bugs mainly mosquitoes and centipedes (the general non poisonous kind) but then the island is covered in mosquitoes. Is summary if your trying to do koh Lipe on a budget this is the place for you, just don’t expect the same standard as you would find in other parts of Thailand for this money.
Great place to stay, good location ”
This place is good for all kind of travellers.The best location, you are in the middle of all good restaurants and night life as you close to both best beaches too.Nice bungalows with big bad, fan and moskito net. Clean and nice shower with toilet. All resort is under trees so it is nice in the day time and it is on little hill so a bit wind takes of the moskitos. The couple that runs Gipsey 2 are very nice and help you with all you need. This place made our nice Koh Lipe holiday much better.
Gipsy 2 Bungalows was quiet despite the central location. For budget accommodation on Ko Lipe it was fine for a couple of nights. Nice garden and helpful friendly staff.
Friendly staff and great value for money!”
We stayed at Gipsy 2 Rivendell for 6 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The owners made us feel very welcome and kinf of felt that we were in someones home, not at a hotel. Even thought we only had fan in our room, it didn't feel hot at all. I guess the room temperatures don't increase too much because there is many trees surrounding. Room were clean and comfortable. The toilet didn't have flush, but neither did a 4-star hotel. The location is excellent! In the middle of the Walking Street, but a little off the road. The owners are very friendly and helped us with questions about the island.
Cosy hut located at quiet area”
initially i was thinking it wouldn't be any great stay but surprisingly it turns out far above my expectation, and i doesn't even feel like leaving. here's the features of the bungalow / hut: 1. every hut comes with a "cradle", you will have to take turns enjoying it if you are not solo traveling. 2. the furniture (basically only the bed) is clean and new, quite comfortable. 3. toilet is without a roof, but with a net to prevent some tree leafs / birds falling into your toilet. so all the business in toilet you are doing is open air.. by the way, toilet bowl and sink is new and clean and there is no hot water shower for all huts. 4. lots of mosquito-repellent coil and aerosol provided.you gonna need them during dawn / evening. not to worry when you sleep, every room comes with mosquito net as you can see the the hotel picture. 5. no air-cond, only a wall fan. but it is good enough during night. i didn't even switch on the fan during afternoon, because it is windy during afternoon. others: 1. in the middle of all bungalows, lots of sharing cradles for the hotel visitors. 2. a lovely couple from barcelona running this resort, with 2 friendly dogs. i fed the dog with a fried chicken from the walking street, that's how i got a watch dog in front of my hut. 3. no room service available, but there is a broom for every bungalow. the bungalow is not huge, so you may swipe away the sand on the floor all by yourself. 4. it is located very near to pooh bar and just a sloop next to walking street, despite all those bars you are still away from noises.
Simple yet easy”
I stayed here for 4 nights - the place is great. It's NOT a luxury bungalow, but it's very simple and clean. The fans could be a little stronger (none of the bungalows have AC), but the bathroom is clean and nice, the setting is cute and QUIET, thank goodness. Koh Lipe has been built up quite a bit, but Gypsy Bungalows are tucked away in the back.
Good priced fan bungalow on an expensive Island”
Koh Lipe is very expensive as it is a stopover island as well as a holiday destination. Gipsy 2 is well priced and in a good central position just off Walking Street and about 5 minutes walk to the beaches.
Gipsy 2 Bungalows - value for money, i recommend”
Gipsy 2 Bungalows are nice, we had a wood bungalow. Quite big space. The bed is 140cm wide with mosquito net. Bathroom is quite good. Nice terrace in front of the door. Good location, just 1 minutes from main street with restaurant and shops. 10 min walk to Sunrise beach... for this price, i recommend.. perfect for backbackers
Nice, comfortable, good value-for-money”
We had a great time in Koh Lipe - Gypsy Rivendell 2 is a good location, near to the walking street, but away from the noise, conveniently located on a small hill near to both Pattaya Beach and Sunrise Beach. The bungalows are simple but lovely, they are clean, spacious, very close to nature due to the bamboo-walls and the open roof top bathrooms, the beds are soft and comfy, and each bungalow has its own hammock. The owners, a spanish couple, are nice, friendly and relaxed, and they have an eye for the small things, like lovely decorations all over the place. Furthermore accessories such as mosquito coils, incense sticks, towels, beach sarongs, etc. are provided. One small point - for those who are light sleepers: the gardener rakes up leaves in the morning at around 8.45 a.m., followed by burning them, which is noticeable inside the bungalows when sleeping. Apart from this, staying at Gypsy Rivendell 2 is a good value-for-money deal for relaxed travelers who want to have a good time.
Nice tropical bungalow”
I had nice 3 days in Gipsy 2 Rivandel. Everething is like in Agoda photo. Room is clean, no air-con, but temerature in the night was pleasent. There is mosquitoes net, and spray in the table. Very good location, in the centre of island, in wood, only 5 min walking to Pattaya beach, 7 min to Sunrise Beach, and maybe 12-15 to Sunset beach and "Lagoona" Walking street is only 80-100 meters, but location is quiet. Staff, young couple from Cataluna was frendly and helpful. They are good friend with people who working in first travel office.
