              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.

              Relax,Very Nice Resort,Attentive & Friendly staffs”

              Attentive & Friendly staffs, Comfortable villa, snorkeling gears & kayak inclusive in fee

              Stayed in Sawan Resort for 3D2N, room type is Ocean Villa. (1) Icy watermelon juice is served as our welcoming juice, and it really made us feel very refreshing after the long & rough journey to arrive at the island. (2) Reception staffs (Ms. Um and Julie) speak fluently English, where else most of the Thai people on the island doesn't understand English well. (3) All resort staffs we deal with are friendly, very accommodating, helpful and with high efficiency. (4) Resort provides free shuttle to mobile around the island. Resort also ready with snorkeling gears & kayak which is free of charges. Sawan prepared beach tote, beach towels and umbrella for guests with no extra charges. (5) Each resort villa is design to let the guests having own privacy, and ours facing the sea, Attap & wooden villa bring us feeling closer to nature. The only downside we feel is - breakfast is relatively over-simple, limited food choices, portion too little, quality of foods are not on par comparing with other hotels/resorts (sausages, hams, scrambled eggs, toasts, strawberry jams etc). Side note: (1) our thought is the mosquitos issue is unavoidable because the island is mostly surrounded by jungles, other hotels/resorts on the island maybe also facing the same issue. As to relief the annoyance of Mosquitos inside room, Sawan provided 2 mosquito repellents. (2) special thanks to P.Chai for the friendly & attentive help when in need. And we're gratitude also goes to reception staffs Um & Julie for always there for us. We will choose Sawan Resort again when we back to Koh Lipe. We're regret our stays in Sawan was too short.

              I've been to a lot of resorts in Thailand and other countries and Sawan resort was the best ocean-side resort that I've ever stayed at. The staff were exceptional. They met me at the dock, provided excellent service throughout my stay. I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Koh Lipe.

              Fantastic luxury villa with amazing view. Staff went out of their way to make our stay special. Location ideal

              We had a wonderful stay at Sawan and would definitely recommend a stay at this gorgeous resort. The villas are large and very comfortable. The view over the sea was breathtaking. Located on Sunset Beach was ideal as no noise from bars and restaurants yet they were only a stroll away. There were many extra little touches that made a difference. A little thought goes a long way. Beach towels and a beach bag for your use were just one of those. The bed was very comfortable and to wake up and look out at the view was magical. All the staff were friendly and went out of their way to ensure our stay was special. Always checking to see if everything was ok. We will return.

              Room was huge with large balcony overlooking the spectacular view of beach and the sea. Friendly and attentive staff accommodating to your needs.

              This is one of the gem in Koh Lipe. Probably because it is on sunset beach away from the busy sunrise and pattaya we enjoyed the quiet stay. It's only 15 mins walk from the walking street that the attentive hotel staff is happy to give you a ride. Only have 5 rooms so it's nice and cozy unlike some of the larger resorts.

              Beautiful, Quite, Private

              We went there for our honey moon, great room, great design, clean, complete, great view, romantic. We book the furthest room from the private beach, nearest to the road but its not noisy as Sawan like the only resort nearby (downturn, quite far from the mainstreet makes it almost impossible to walk, but they provide free shuttle). Nice spa & massage place where u can relax while listen and view the sea, small but so so beach infront of the resort, where u can stroll down to the fisherman village along the shore. There are several great local restaurants there. The breakfast option could be better, but the dining area view to the sea is breathtaking. Will visit again for our anniversary, for sure.

              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.

              Our mini honeymoon was made unforgettable with the wonderful service and unbeatable sea views at Sawan. Insects aplenty no doubt due to the rustic surroundings, but that was just a mere stain on this wonderful holiday. Was a little pricey but for the privacy and surroundings i think it may be worth it.

              Sawan Resort”

              Spent 3 nights at this place. I wouldn’t call this place a resort as it doesn’t have much of anything, just 5 villas and a small restaurant with a limited menu. On the first day we turned up we were given a villa, which was not the one we booked. We were told the one we booked would be available the next day but the next day came and was told they were overbooked and the villa was now no longer available. No refund on the price difference, just a free dinner for that night. The Villa is very old, the tv would not work on the first night and during the second and last night the electricity kept cutting out, which made things inconvenient. The “resort” does have an excellent view of sunset beach and good staff who are very friendly and would try to help as much as they can but due to poor management, overbookings, lack of facilities we will not be staying at this place again when we go back to Lipe. For the price paid there are better choices on the island.

              Nice view, privacy, good service, far from walking street”

              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.

              Totally overrated”

              Rooms are nice and spacious, food was ok, secluded area

              The beach area (which is much smaller than on the photos) was under construction, bar and deck not useable, only two old dirty chairs to lay on. all the green between the bungalows was cut off and therefore there was only a muddy hill view visible, beside the way down to the beach they dumped all the cut down plants which resulted in a not too nice view of rotten vegetation. The construction on the beach bar facilities meant the whole day loud noise. the pictures on the website do not reflect how the resort is in shape currently, we assume it is linked to the new local management. When we moved out they were somehow upset I assume, so they let me carry all the luggage alone although demanding the full three nights payment. All in all not very professional which is sad since there is big potential for the place.

              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.
