      Beautiful, Tropical, Paradise”

      Breakfast, Beach, Views

      Having stayed on Koh Lipe in 2008, we were a little unsure of what to expect as the island itself has had very mixed reviews over the past few years. It has definitely been developed a lot since we were last there but only as you would expect from a Thai island catering for the increasing volume of visitors wishing to find that island paradise, and paradise it still is. Serendipity resort is an absolute gem on the island. It has so much charm and is tucked away with its own little beach that only guests really use. Each room is essentially a beautiful wooden treehouse, staggered at varying levels on the side of a hill. The hilltop rooms are a fair few steps (approx 140) with the sea view rooms around 90 to 100 steps up. This definitely kept us fit! Breakfast is served on your balcony each morning which is a real treat! All the staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us during our stay. We were moved to another room for 2 nights as the AC broke down, but a new part was ordered and promptly fitted within 48 hours, bearing in mind the electrician and parts have to come from the mainland. Another nice touch to Serendipity is that all the extras I'm sure many resorts charge for (Snorkel gear, kayaks, beach mats, games) are all included. Overall we had an amazing time staying here, and cannot wait to return when we can next afford it! Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful holiday. If anyone would like further information regarding Koh Lipe or Serendipity, please feel free to ask.

      We had a wonderful stay at Serendipity Koh Lipe as the staff were very helpful and the villa was clean. I have been traveling for more than 20 years and the breakfast served in the villa was one of the best so far in terms of choices and taste. The resort offers free life jackets, kayaking activities and snorkeling equipment. Location was the best as the beach is protected by an area far away from the boats and offers stunning views.

      Beautiful and Nice Hotel”

      Serendipity is located at the south end of Sunrise beach. When we arrived we were greeted by two of their staff (Tik and Nu), who is really friendly and gave a really good brief introduction of the hotel and what to expect. Room:We book a sea view room, and our room its located at the top of the hill, which means you can expect lotsa walking. Room is clean and nice, and they have smart tv in the room which means you can still watch ur favorite movie online. If you dont like the hassle there is always a blueray player with 6 movie titles for you to kill time. We were informed the shower pressure isn't that strong and believe me, they weren't kidding about it. Food:The hotel provide room service with no additional charge and the food is nice and reasonably price. Recreational:There is two kayak available and you can also get the snorkeling gear and life jacket from the staff at no charge. Beach:Beautiful fine sandy beach, and nice place to snorkel. Its situated far from taxi boat.

      View and uniqueness of room

      serendipity is a great hotel located in a secluded area of sunrise beach. the small stretch of beach in front was really like a private beach! the view from the hotel is awesome and no other place in lipe can boast the same. service in serendipity is also excellent! we had the a/c seaview room and although there are quite a number of stairs to climb, it was worth it! there is also a bit of a walk (3-5mins) to the main area of sunrise beach (where castaway is located) and about another 5-10min walk to the walking street.

      Peace and Serenity at a slight inconvenience.”

      First of all, there are 3 main beaches on the island and Serendipity is on the best one: Sunrise beach. It's at the far end and has a charming secluded beach area in front of it. Combined with the 'in the hillside' design of the suites you get a very serene isolated experience. It's very calming. The downside with any kind of isolation is that it makes getting to main attractions a bit of a pain. Getting to the main hub of restaurants is a bit of a walk and even getting to the beach from your room can be 100+ step stair case so don't forget anything. This isn't a walk out your door onto the beach but then again, there is no one walking in front of your suite either like beachfront ones do.

      Beautiful location on a hill with a quiet beach”

      location, service, and food

      We stayed for 3 nights and it was perfect. Serendipity is set along a hillside overlooking a quiet, secluded bit of Sunrise beach, but a less than 5 minute walk to the more populated parts of the beach. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. We were served a huge breakfast every morning and their menu options were more than ample. We walked all over the island and I don't think there was a cleaner beach with whiter sands than this. It was almost like a private beach! One note - the property is not easily accessible if you have mobility issues as it's built on a hill and requires a fair bit of stair climbing!

      Staff, View, Beach

      From the moment we walked up the stairs to the resort the staff were there to welcome us with a drink and cold towel. Throughout or stay they kept up their great service standard - always with a smile. We saw many hotels during our stay on Lipe and, by far, Serendipity was the best. Rustic, wooden, laidback eco-chic would be one way to describe. This is not a luxury hotel but it is a solid four star. Very comfortable. The views are unbelievable and the private little bay is gorgeous. You won't go wrong with Serendipity!

      Fabulous honeymoon suite”

      We loved our suite at serendipity. We felt truly at home here during the second hotel stay of our honeymoon. The staff was outwardly friendly and accommodating. They arranged a honeymoon bed for us upon our arrival. I wish we had realized during check in that snorkels and kayaks were free for customers of the resort. We didn’t read this in the resort information until just before we left. The stairs can be quite a workout. Breakfast served in the room was lovely and plentiful. The views were incredible and we loved the small beach at the bottom of the stairs. Non- beach access to the resort is a bit confusing, steep, not well lit and can be quite muddy during or after rain. We have already recommended the resort to many of our friends and family.

      Advantage: - The most privacy resort, as it’s located at the end of sunrise beach (south), perfect for honeymooners like us - The view from the resort is magnificent! - Breakfast in room is a big highlight here, they will send it to your room every morning at your own preferred time. For Muslim, You can request for Halal food. - snorkelling equipment & kayak is free for the Serendipity’s guests - Free transfer from Ko Lipe’s immigration to the resort - They provide beach mat, dry bag, torchlight, umbrella in each villa for the guests use - Nearby walking street, around 10 minutes walking time - They clean your room everyday Disadvantage: - Wifi coverage is very bad, not to mention, you have to share the wifi with other villa - Need to climb up the stairs everytime you want to go to your own villa. We stayed at the Deluxe Seaview villa, closer to beach, thus, less stairs for us :) - The resort’s staffs are not fluent in english, thus, you will have trouble to speak with them.

      We have had a wonderful stay at Serendipity, where friendly staffs were waiting for our arrival at the pontoon and the shore with umbrellas. The food at the hotel restaurant is nice. Snorkelling equipment & kayaking are all included in the room charge. We had a nice view of the sunrise straight from our room balcony, not to mention about the nice beach right in front of the resort. Many thanks to the nice and friendly staffs. The only minor downside are the long stairs up to our room and the dark quiet walk to/fro the resort at night time.

      Very good”

      Perfect for honeymoon! The room was really spacious, and everything was made from wood, including the clothes hanger. The resort was esp thoughtful. The keys were given to us in a pouch, with a torch to shine through the darkness. The bed had a mosquito netting, and they even provide mosquito repellent incense if u need it. There wasn't any mosquitoes during our stay but we just light it anyway. There's also coffee maker and toaster, traditional games and books. Serendipity is the furthest on the Sunrise beach, but that is not a concern. We enjoyed the serene we had, played the dvds provided and had a wonderful lunch in the room. Oh did i mention that breakfast is an in-room service? We were glad we stayed here for our last 2 nights as we literally just stayed in the room to slack. Then we borrowed the kayak and snorkeling equipments and had a great time exploring the underwater creatures right in front of the resort. It was an awesome stay. Will love to come back again!

      Wonderful Stay! Will Visit Again!”

      Thank you to the staff over at Serendipity! My 3 friends and I visited the island during mid-June (low season) so the seas were choppy and about 40 percent of the island's shops were closed and under renovation. Needless to say, it was not as lively as my first visit to the island earlier this year in January. However, due to low season, we got a pretty good deal for such a luxury place. Our villa offered a brilliant view thanks to its hillside location but it may not be super accessible for everyone. We had some difficulty navigating the several flights of stairs at night and in the rain. The resort provided a very comprehensive breakfast, where we could choose what we wanted, what time we wanted it and the choice to have it in the in-house restaurant or delivered to our room. The room was beautiful and housekeeping services was frequent. With the villa being situated in nature, we had some issue with ants and other insects especially if we had food lying around.

      We were a party of 4 friends and we had the most wonderful time at Serendipity- to the point where we're actually planning our next trip already! The location was amazing, even though our room was a bit of a hike up but that's what made it even better because the view from up there that overlooks the sea is incredible. The staff at Serendipity made our stay super comfortable and catered to everyone of our needs. Be it a snorkeling trip to the nearby island, food recommendations and even setting up extra mosquito nets for our extra beds. We spent 3 nights there and feel that it was definitely too short. We can't wait to come back and stay at Serendipity again!

      Beautiful Island, Wonderful Place to Stay”

      We had a pool villa on the hillside with a fantastic sea view. The room was really comfortable and clean. The small pool was great for the kids to play in. The lovely beach was just a minute's walk down the steps. We were there for a week and the visibility for snorkeling right off the beach varied with the tides and weather. First few days were really clear just off the beach, after that a short swim or kayak to the nearby island was needed to see the fish and coral. Either way, great fun and very natural. Food was good at the resort and there are a number of other places to eat just a short walk down the beach if you need some variety. You can also walk about 30 minutes to Walking Street and Pattaya Beach for even more choice. Breakfast is fantastic - you can order a variety of stuff the evening before and it's delivered to the room at whatever time you need. Service was wonderful - really friendly reception and restaurant staff.

      Perfect private beach with equally perfect rooms!”

      We had a wonderful stay in Serendipity. The room is beautifully decorated and very clean. It is located on the edge of hills which means you need to go up a lot of steps to reach your room but the view from balcony is oustanding. The food in their restaurant is exceptional especially the rock lobster cooked in butter garlic! I very much recommend this resort, it's worth every penny spent.
