          Best staff and nice views”

          First remark, the staff does not speak english, however they do whatever they can to maje your stay pleasant and fix any small issue. Great and friendly guys! During these days the hotel is under construction. It is not a resort and to get to the beach you need to go down several steps, for us it was really nice due to it is a quiet beach. As vegetarians the hotel changed the breakfast according to our taste. Nice gesture! Air conditioner and refrigerator work great. Consider that The location is at some distance from the the walking street, quiet place and clean... and beautiful view.

          Lovely little villa with breathtaking view! ”

          It's definitely a more rustic beach villa. The view from the villa is mindblowing. We honetsly felt that we got the best view on the island. We could snorkel in the beach just below the resort. Its more quiet compared to the other two beaches. But more beautiful. Rooms are clean, towels and ammenities are good. Staff service is excellent, we can't thank them enough! We travelled during off season so the bar and restaurant was closed, but they still made us a drink on the house! I injured myself several times thru out the trip and Nun was always ready with a first aid kid to sort it out. Lovely service, we'd go again just for it. It's a wee bit away from the walking street, but the resort provides free taxi service to wherever and we made our own way home. Would definitely come back! Cons (which we could ignore because we loved it) : -The rain shower doesn't quite rain -The bathtub is small and the shower heater is a little tricky to manage for use -can't leave food stuff outside or rats will sneak in to steal it (we learnt on the first night and kept all food in the fridge from then on). -same breakfast everyday.

          Missed opportunities but huge potentials”

          Stunning view from the deck/ room. We have been to Lipe 3 times and stayed in 3 different beaches and resorts. This was the best view without boats blocking your view. The saff were wonderful, highly service minded especially a manager, friendly and smiley. Food tasted great. However there were many cons. 1) we had a problem to sleep due to air cons not working properly. 2) A shower room had no warm water with broken and a leaking shower head. If you want warm shower, you need to shower in a bath tub. 3) A safe was ridiculously small so you could only put wallets. 4) You could spot digusting stains everywhere from curtains, a sofa bench and duvet. 5) Breakfast was tiny (2 pieces of bread , 2 small sausauges ,1 small egg and Padthai or fried noodle without fruit juice, proper coffee, fruits nor dessert. 6) Expensive prices of food. It was such a shame since it had so much potentials. It seemed like the owner giving up. With regular maintenance, this resort could go long way.

          Best Choiece In Koh Lipe”

          Service Service Service

          Me and my bf we were just overly satisfied about everything the resort staff have ever done for us. The service is undoubtedly the best thing we have to mention. We had troubles to buy tickets from Lipe to Krabi due to a off-season situation but soon we found problems solved by thoughtful staff and the lovely girl from the reception. Everything was perfectly settled. Besides, things I love most about the resort would be its location and food. The sunset beach is rated as the worst beach on the island when compared with pattaya and sunrise beach but we just hold the opposite opinions. This beach is way quieter and more private to have an intimate stay with your partner and the sunset there you can see is just killing it. Having meals on the cliff and enjoying a massage at their massage centre are highly recommended. During our stay, Natalia, the cute dog adopted by the resort staff came over for several times which brought us lots of fun. I guess Sawan is just the best you can have in Koh Lipe.

          This place is unreal, it's gotta be paradise. The view from our room was breathtaking and service was impeccable right from check-in to check-out. Natalie their resident dog is the sweetest and most gentle dog ever. She entered our room during our lunch and just sat with us in the balcony, enjoy the view (and food of course). We love everything about Sawan and will definitely be back again soon. We just hope this place stays as idyllic.

          Hole on timber flooring @ shower, rat visited the room 3 nights in a row stealing our snacks, mosquitoes every day when cleaners do not close the door while cleaning. No body wash provided, only a bar of soap which wasn't replaced when they cleaned the room the first night and washed the soap down the same hole. Only emailed to ask our arrival on the very same day I arrive whilst I was on ferry without mobile data. Ended paying my own fare to the resort. Having said that, location was great with lovely view of clear sea, with sunset to boot. Staff were friendly enough, though not in par with some of my experiences within Thailand.

          Very nice view, especially in the evening as it's on the sunset part of the island. You get to use the private beach to yourself since there're hardly anybody else on this secluded part of the island, but it's advisable to wear water shoes as it's a rocky beach. Service is impeccable, nice staff around, I was provided with a handphone that I can call to request for pick-up back to hotel from walking street, this service is provided foc. Breakfast is nice with a decent selection from the menu, some titbits in room are provided foc as well. Only setback is that it's quite far from walking street.
