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.
Dear Anastasia, Thank you for sharing your experience at Forra Pattaya Beach Resort. Living on a tropical island in bamboo bungalows can have some disagrements and food attracts the small animals. But as you wrote, it s small inconvinience compares to stay on a beautyfull island with wonderfull beaches. We hope to see you again. Kind Regards Forra Team
Nice romantic hut”
Located on Pattaya Beach. Quiet position. Friendly staff. Very nice bamboo hut with nice partially open restroom. Matress could be better, it's not so comfy, what a pity! Wifi excellent. Overall, everything was ok but the bed. Maybe little bit too expensive.
Than k you very much Giorgio for your review. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in Forra Bamboo Resort and that you liked our location and our bungalows. We have already placed an order for new mattresses and we keep our promise to work our best to offer a pleasant stay for all guests. Best regards,
We really enjoyed our stay at Forra Diving. Everything was what we needed and expected. Re the Kioskino restaurant, if you are Italian they will treat you like you are family, if don’t just forget it! I would recommend to stay in Forra.
The receptionist is helpful. The scenery is magnificent with no doubt. 10 minutes walking distance to Walking Street. 15 minutes walk to Sunset Beach.
Thank you for sharing your experience at Forra Pattaya Beach resort. We wish to see you again. Forra Team
Cottage is ok for sleeping, provided towels, location is great, only slightly negative aspect was that WiFi is only available at reception, not in the houses. Would recommend for backpackers!
A good quiet place, something I was after. The mosquito net was a lifesaver due to all the monster bugs frogs and insects entering the bungalow. The receptionist is a super kind woman. Pretty pricey restaurant is the only letdown.
Enjoyed our stay very much”
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.
Hi Ole, Thank you very much for your good review about your stay at Forra Bamboo Bungalows. We appreciate that you liked the place and the team. We hope to see you again. Best regards,
Worth it! ”
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. One negative issue were the wholes in the mosquito nets which we had to fix before we went to bed. The staff is very friendly. We would stay there again!
Thank you Sescha for your review. We are happy to know that you enjoyed Forra Bamboo Resort, our bungalows, our open air bathroom and our staff. We hope to see you again. Best regards,
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.
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,
Highly recommended ”
I booked two nights but ended up staying 5 nights! I really enjoyed my stay. It felt very homelike. (loved it). The staff is so lovely and the bungalows are right at the beach. In the end I've even been diving with them. I had never done it before and was quite nervous but in the end I felt so comfortable and save in the water :) I definitely recommend staying at Forra and go DIVING!!!
Thank you Nele for your very good review about your stay at Forra Bamboo resort. We are happy to know that you enjoyed to be with our team and diving with us as well. We hope to see you again for your Open Water course maybe? Best regards,

Thank you Lee for your review. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at Forra Bamboo resort and found our location and our staff great. We hope to see you again. Best regards,
Forra Diving Resort Pattaya Beach”
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.
Simple bamboo bungalows at a great price”
Bungalows are fun, staff is friendly, and great location. Swimming and great snorkeling right out front. Snorkel rental was cheap. Don't hesitate to contact for help with transportation questions. Only complaint is the beds were hard and the resort next door was a little noisy at times.
nice, simple bungalow near beach”
really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it!
nice eco resort”
Very nice resort, bamboo natural bungalows. Friendly and helpful staff. Nothing to complain.
Nice jungle room with easy access to the sea shore”
It was a nice stay in the lovely jungle room. The hotel is close to the sea but it's a bit far from the walking street.
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.
Thank you Victor for your review. We are happy to see that you liked our staff and our location. We take your remarks about the water into consideration and will try to improve for next season, we have already started the renovation of our bungalows. We hope you enjoyed the end of your stay in Thailand. Best regards,
Horible/ No Amenities Provided. The hotel did not privuded an essential amenities like soap, toilet paper. The bath room is so filthy as well as an entire structure. Stay away from this hotel and this Lepeh Island. The locak boats are ripping off almost all Senoir of even Thai Tourist.The commuting boat from an Island Terminal to Hotels Pier are operating. They have to walk almost 1.5 miles to the Forra Resort.
Thank you 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 toiletries 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. We are sorry that the system set up to arrive on the island does not suit you but it allows the locals to continue to survive here despite the huge influx of tourists every year... Best regards,
Bamboo Hut Living! ”
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!
Thank you Rowhan for your feedback, it is much appreciate. Your description of the bungalow is very true, back to nature with some frogs (which is good, they eat mosquitoes), shower under the stars, towels changed on demand... We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and our staff. Best regards
Very desappointing and overpriced”
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.
Hello Hubert, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you didn't like your stay with us, I invite you to read more the details on the website when you book to don't be disappointed. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holidays in Thailand. Best regards,
