      Little peace of heaven ”

      I booked at kathalee initially for 4 night but ended adding a 5th one . This small resort is located at the very end of sunrise beach, and enjoys a beautiful quiet little creek. Most of koh lipe beaches are full of longtails boats so it’s really appreciated . Perfect place for snorkeling and kayaking or just laying on one of their sun beds . This hotel is run by a very nice thai woman , always friendly and helpful . I read here and there some bad comments about a German guy being in this place ,rude sometime and unfriendly . As for myself I met a very nice guy, from Germany also , very concerned about the coral reef and the damages that can be done by some tourist and even customers . Can’t believe it was the same person :)

      Best end of the beach Gem”

      Don't let the location of being at the end of the beach steer you away. It's a quick walk into town to the Walking Street. The Kathalee has wonderful staff, willing to help you in any way you need. The biggest plus to this location is the absolutely beautiful little cove/beach area in front of the restaurant. It's secluded and the water is perfect for a light swim or snorkeling. I've stayed two times at the Kathalee and will certainly book again when I return to Koh Lipe for my next vacation.

      Kathalee resort is wonderful. As a solo female traveller I couldn’t of been better taken care of. The location is optimal, bc although you are at the very end of the beach, you have THE BEST part of the beach. Bc it is a national park, there is no boat traffic off your shore. If travelling Koh Lipe, I would recommend it highly. VERY clean! The staff are incredible. Have fun!

      Amazing location ”

      The hotel is on one of the best spots on sunrise beach has its own private little beach with no tailboats parked up outside like most the other hotels The hotel itself is nice and clean we had the family room for 4 of us 2 adults 2 children and it was perfect 1 king size bed 1 double bed and 1 sofa with great views of the ocean The ocean outside the hotel is great for snorkelling and the hotel have all the equipment u can borrow they also have an underwater camera u can hire and they have memory cards u can buy to keep for 200 baht The hotel staff are very friendly it seems like a family run hotel and the staff can’t do enough for you The only negatives I can think of for people with walking disabilities is it’s a quite steep entry in and out of the hotel if u want to head into the centre of Lipe but u can walk along the beach or there is a little hotel bahtbus that takes people along if requested but we found walking along the beach no problem and is about 10-15 mins walk into the centre of Lipe The breakfast is really basic but still I wouldn’t let that stop us from returning next year 9.5/10 from us

      Beautiful location”

      The resort is in a beautiful location with very helpful and friendly staff. The shuttle ride into Walking Street is a nice touch as was the provision of snorkels and masks to borrow, beach towels, pick up and drop off to the pier etc. The rooms are ok, nothing special, but perfectly comfortable. It was expensive which is probably both a reflection of the time of year and Koh Lipe itself. The surrounding islands to Koh Lipe are fantastic.

      Perfectly positioned and friendly staff”

      This place was perfect for us as a family (2 children age 10 & 6). The resOrt is tucked at the end of sunrise beach and has a beautiful little shady beach and snorkeling bay right outside so you are away from the boat traffic. The staff were wonderful, always smiling and willing to help, giving balls and toys to the kids. Breakfast was adequate for us living in Asia but don’t go expectating full hotel style buffet. My only, very minor, suggestions would be some kind of washing line to hang wet swimmers on (we lost a pair into the tree below which the staff did manage to retrieve somehow!) and some softer pillows, but if this is my only comment after 1 week then I think it was pretty fantastic!

      Excellent Location”

      A beautiful secluded lagoon beach awaits you. The hotel is expensive and you may get better value next door at the Idyllic Resort 1 minute away with a pool. However we very much enjoyed having our private little beach and the children were able to play around very safely. We stayed in a Family Seaview room, the view was ok and the space very good. Strong smell of drains from the bathroom though Staff were present all the time and very friendly. The breakfast was just right for 4 days as it is repetitive and you get bored of Nescafé sachets very quickly! The owners are excellent, although you may find the German Owner very cold at first he does warm up eventually and is very helpful during the stay. His partner was wonderfully welcoming. Snorkelling and Kayaking complimentary, a bonus when you know there is so much to see out there. If you walk along the beach, access to Walking Street (a must for dinners!) is very easy and only about 10 minutes' walk. We had a very relaxing time there.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The fridge was big, enough to accommodate the drinks my friends and I brought. Breakfast selection was mediocre, you can always walk out for food. Walking street is 30mins away or theres a feeder van your can take if feeling lazy.

      Our room was modern, clean and well equipped with a large window and balcony with loungers. The view was great but a little obscured. Location excellent if you don't mind being away from the busiest beach. Kayaks available for guests to use. Breakfast was very basic, but enough to keep us satisfied (barely). If you require a 'great' breakfast this is not for you. Staff were friendly and helpful, but laidback and not always easy to find. Part of the restaurant had a persistent bad smell, but overall value for money is good. It wasn't our first choice, but everywhere else was full, and we did have a really good time on Lipe.

      the view, the rooms, the location

      We stayed there for 4 nights and had a wonderful time in Koh Lipe. The hotel was lovely, brand new, great views and right down the end of Sunrise beach so very quiet. The only complaint is the breakfast. Absolutely terrible. I've had nicer and fresher food, and better service from cheaper hotels. Whenever we went for breakfast, 7am, 8am, or 9am, there was always no food left, no plates left, no cutlery and no coffee. Once the food was replenished, it was oily fried rice or noodles, rubber sausages or fatty beef bacon. A small amount of fruit. Well below the standard one would expect for such a hotel. It was the only thing that ruined the experience. Breakfast next door was superb! So we ate breakfast there the remaining 2 days.

      Ok, after some initially annoying service all was good except a terrible sewerage smell in the rooms. We put up with it and staff tried their best but the hotel is brand new and has teething problems. Overall it was a great holiday and as a sailor who has visited Lipe for 12 years the rumours that the island has been spoiled are unfounded.
