        Don't expect any comfort here and you will be completely satisfied. There is no chair or shelves inside, so your stuff will be in your bags. Our hut was not far from the beach so we could see the sea from the terrase! Most of all we were afraid of cocroaches, moscitos and hot in the night: -Yes, we saw cocroaches twice after we had left fruits inside. -Antimoscitos sprays work and the net around the bed works 100%. -The fan works great, very comfortable sleep. Sometimes it was windy at night and we slept without fan. We checked all the beaches on the island and Pattaya beach is the best to stay on (for swiming we went to other beaches). We also checked Forra Dive on Sunrise beach and were happy that we had chosen Pattaya beach.

        For the expensive island Koh Lipe, the bungalows and the location are perfect. The bungalows are simple but very spacious, completely made from bamboo with a big porch and a hammock. The beds are of high quality, good mosquito nets and rooms are with fan only. The bathrooms are simple but functional. The water supply on the island is not perfect, at certain times the pressure is low. Sadly the restaurant was closed after the high season, but plenty of options in walking distance. Wifi speed could be optimized but is 24h available at the front building and bar at the stunningly perfect beach. On the island are only a few ATMs from only one company available (the yellow krungsri bank) or cash advance in some exchange places. The people running Forra Pattaya are extraordinary nice, very warm and welcoming. Made new friends.

        Nice place right on the beach of Koh Lipe. The Bungalows are simple but they have everything you need. The shower without roof was really cool.

        This is not a resort”

        This is a hut 50 meters from the beach. The word "resort" does not apply. The location is great. But if you like trying to sleep in 95 degree heat on a mattress that resembles plywood, with dogs barking all night and chickens squawking all night, then this place is perfect. The only amenities are towels. The pictures on the web site show a quiet secluded beach. However, there is constant boat traffic and foot traffic on the beach. It is not quiet or secluded.

        Reviewed May 09, 2016

        Thank you Steve for your review. We try to do our description as accurate as possible and add pictures in order to avoid wrong expectations. We offer very cozy simple traditional bamboo bungalows. Also there's no amenities included. I apologize if you got the idea we offered toiletries but i encourage you to make sure to read the full description of the properties before booking. Regarding the bedding, thank you for your feedback. We have already placed an order for new mattresses. About Pattaya beach, it is simple to inquire and know that it is not the most calm beach of the island. Is it really our fault that tourists arrive via this beach? Especially since they land on the other side, the side where our hotel is located is the quieter of Pattaya beach. But I suggest you next time to stay on Sunrise or Sunset beach for more tranquillity. We keep our promise to work our best to offer a pleasant stay for all guests. Best regards,

        Location

        The huts are very nice, they have fans and anti mosquito nets, which is very very useful. I rated 3 on the food because they had none, anyway, there is plenty to eat in the infamous Walking street. Overall a very good value for money in an extremely expensive island for Thailand standards. Location is perfect, far from the most busy areas, but still close enough.

        Good -Location -Friendly staff -Mosquito nets good condition Bad -Toilet ( just a hole then you put a basket of water and after 5 times tryingyour friends will end up trough the pipe if you are lucky) -Toilet sink throws the water straight outside the wall same as all the bungalows, it means that you are walking over the toothpaste of all neighbours. -Water comes out from the pipe with a brown colour so once you have a shower you'll probably be more dirty than before. -Matress is a very old and thin feels like a rock same as sleeping over the bamboo. -Insects like cocroaches, worms, funny frogs and hell of mosquitos are common in the toilet, next to bed only cocroaches and mosquitos. We been travelling around the world and tried already some bungalows around the islands in Thailand and never had this experience even for this price. They should update all the resort to ask for this price.

        Bamboo Hut Living! ”

        Location, Simplicity and the bar next door.

        We had fun staying here! All the rooms are bamboo huts! Which is great, back to basic rooms. The bamboo hit consists of two rooms, the bedroom with a large double bed in the middle with a mosquito net around it. Then a small step down towards the outdoor bathroom. A shower under the stars which is cool. Accompanied by a sink and toilet. The doors and windows do shut but leave gaps for mossys but there not too much of a problem. The bed squeaks a bit and but rickety. The floor has a few nails sticking up through the floor so be careful, staff are around But generally not needed. You have to ask at reception if you want new towels/sheets for the bed. Don't have food in the room though as we had midnight visitors, we believe rats but not sure. Also our soap from the bathroom was nibbled on in our first night, and then eaten completely after the second. few frogs in our room also but we found it more amusing than anything! Great stay if your fine with basic accommodation! It's lush to walk out of your hut on to beautiful pattaya beach. There is a small seating area as well with a hammock. Also the wifi doesn't work in the rooms. You can either sit in the cafe at the front and use it there or like sun attempt to use next door. Again great stay, Enjoy!

        Location is ok. This is about it

        just a traditional bamboo hut with a fan. Nothing of all the small things that give you the feeling that the owner cares for your comfort. not even a nail in the wall to hang your trousers. No seat outside, etc...I would be an acceptable deal at 300 Bahts but completely overpriced at 1,680 Bahts.
