          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.

          My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights in Forra Pattaya Beach and 2 nights in Forra Sunrise Beach. The best thing is the location. It's between two of the best resorts on Pattaya Beach - Mali and SITA. Right in front of the beach. The bungalow is basic with fan and cold shower. Doesn't bother us so much though. Staffs in both Forra are nice. I also attended one scuba diving. They transported us to sunrise beach first and it's a satisfying journey. BTW, the Forra on sunrise beach has better social vibe.

          value, location, beach

          Basic bamboo bungalow. Koh Lipe is a very expensive island compared to other Thai Islands, there are currently no hostels and you can't find a 200-300 baht room like you can on other islands. So, 500 baht is a reasonable price (all bamboo bungalows are about this price). Right on the beach which is very pretty, walking to anywhere is a breeze on the little island. I believe all the bungalows have two queen size beds in them (one in the loft) which is an advantage over the other bungalows. You can fit a few people in there if you're traveling on a budget.

          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!

          It was fantastic and fun..!!!!”

          Room is clean, bathroom is large and I like the bed.

          We stay at the hotel for 3 days 2 nights and it was a fantastic stay. We arrive early on day 1st and they let us check in early without any additional cost which was also superb...!! We stay in the family bungalow and the bungalow is made from bamboo and it was really nice and traditional. The bungalow has 2 double bed and we request for extra bed because of additional travellers and the service is very fast. The staff also assist us to find the cheaper snorkelling trip and it was very worth it. Overall the stay in this hotel is really worth it our money...!!!

          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,

          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.
