desent hut,clean and helpfull staff”
we arrived on the 28th of january,it was really hot out and we were sweating quiet a bit from walking from the beach with our bags.Dont let this put you off,its not a far walk at all! 10 mins i would say.the lads there were cool and chilled out,so we arrived,walked over a little bridge a wallah there was serene resort lipe :-)so we dumped of our bags and could`nt wait to get out and explore,i was a bit nervous because i had my laptop with me and was affraid it would get robbed or something! i expressed my concerns to the guy at the reception hut and he said ``were here all day i will watch it for you nothing will happen here,if it goes missing i will buy u a new one`` he was even kind enough to put it in writing!! i was happy with my stay here,it could have been a little cheaper but we booked over the internet and were glad to be able to dump our bags and go.i would definatly recomend this place.
Value for money ”
my boyfriend and I spent a week at Serene Resort Lipe. located right in the middle of walking street, easy to get to everywhere and 5 mins by foot to the beach. really friendly staff and their Boss was very polite and warm. the place had their own food stall outside, had very good phad thai and other local dishes at very reasonable prices. The wifi in the rooms were only averagely good, but didn't bother us too much. Bathrooms were small but clean and new. a great place to stay if you are travelling on budget.
A compfortable room and a friendly owner”
I stayed at Serene Resort Lipe last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was comfortable with great bed and bathroom. The owner was my favourite part of my stay as after a long day diving, he invited me to his table and shared some of his delicious dinner and beer with me! Excellent choice.
Good B&B on walking street”
Quite good. The boss of the guest house is very kind and helpful. Speak good Hokkien, and English. It feel like home, staying there. The guest house locate in the middle of Lipe, as well as middle of walking street. I think it is very suitable for one seeking simple and value to money for a few nights of comfortable stay. It is definitely suitable for middle income family, student, or anybody who is seeking for affordable B&B. Please do not expect luxury in this resort because the management of the place didn't aim to be one. It is 4.5 star out of 5 in its category as backpacker B&B. I minus 0.5 because i think it will be even better if the price can be brought down a little.
This is the 2nd time I stay here. The reason I choose here is I feel more family and home feel whenever I back to the resort. The staffs are all friendly and helpful. And the location is perfect as in the right middle of walking street Lipe. U can step out the door and hv ur breakfast lunch and dinner . Really love the place
Probably the best room on the walking street”
Best room type in Serene Resort. Only 2 units of this room available. The resort had a double booking and 2 of my friends had to downgrade to red cottage but were not happy with the dirty wall and old toilet. They had to move to another hotel managed by the same management. However, i like my room. Simple, clean, with good aircon and great ventilation, outside the room is the common area which usually unutilised and hence my friends and i max it out. Its a small resort. The red cottages r slidely older while the huts are certainly for the adventurous but it looks clean.
Fits the basic need of a traveling couple. A little pricey for a room for 2 but I suppose the rooms on Koh Lipe Walking street are on the steep side. My only grouch was that there was so many mosquitoes which came from the bathroom. I couldn’t figure out from where they came as there was no window.
clean & comfortable room”
we paid a bit more for one of the fancier wooden ensuite rooms (not the bamboo huts!) and it was well worth it after a day of diving and snorkeling. Koh Lipe has an excellent night life so the hotel location at the heart of the shopping street was perfect.
A cosy guesthouse in the best area”
Serene (pronounced 'say-rey-ney') is a very comfortable guesthouse situated smacked in the middle of Walking Street, Koh Lipe's main vein. What I like the most about our room (Family room) is the position; We open the door and we are already at the Walking Street. And there's a 100 baht (USD3) cocktail bar right next to our room. Pattaya Beach and Sunrise Beach is just 3 minutes walk, while the Sunset Beach is about 10 minutes walk. Best location so far. I'd love to stay here again on my next visit.
Very good location and owner really friendly”
The location was perfect because it was in the walking street where all the restorants and shops were, and also at a walking distance from the best beach in koh lipe, sunrise beach. The owner was very nice too, willing to help any time you ask.
Moderately relaxing hotel in the middle of it all”
i have to say that my first night there was rather disappointing and i considered looking for alternate accommodations. sitting next to two different bars (there's a make-shift bar right in front of the premises) it doesn't really get quiet until after midnight. which is ok nights when you're going out, but not so great after a long day of traveling or have to make an early start. there's also a generator or some kind of machine that is grinding away all night long. after a few days i got used to it, or maybe i was just wiped out from diving all day. it was in the middle of the island so it was convenient to go to either sunrise or sunset beach. the bamboo hut is- as expected- fairly spartan; just large enough for the bed, mostly enough room to stand up (i'm 180 cm), simple toilet, and cold shower. all in all, was a decent place to stay on koh lipe, but i think next time i will look around the large number of bungalow places along sunrise beach.
The bungalows are ok, but really small. We had bamboo bungalows on another island which were more spacious. The location is quite ok as Koh Lipe is really tiny, you can get everywhere from there. I would not highly recommend this resort as you can find something much better on the island closer to the beach.
easy to go anywhere,good location ,”
Very nice hotel,the local staff very helpful and hospitaility.room are clean but only problem about the water come very less and slow (simple case of the problem on islands)The location in the middle of walking street ,easy to take or buy some thing as you wish ,but not next to the sea ,walking to the beach about 3-5 minute.shopping good .close to the tour office to contact everything that you want,and the price is very reisenable
Nice owner, excellent location, simple but nice room.”
Location is excellent, in the middle of walking street. Room was great, clean & simple. Wi-Fi speed not bad. Can watch movie. Owner & staff are helpful, friendly & will not drag people for spend in their resort. Water flowing slow, but at least with hot water. No kettle, difficult to get boil water, have to get from 7-11.
In the heart of food and shops. ”
Very clean and nice looking hotel right on walking street. Everything thing is right there, including restaurants, shopping, bars, 7-11 and even a small hospital. Tons of massage places up and down walking street. By far, Sunrise Beach is the nicest for swimming and lounging and only a 5 minute walk. Had a couple mosquitos in the room but I carry a can of spray with me. I sprayed and went out to eat. When I came back it was safe for the rest of the trip. They need to work on more water pressure. Without water pressure, the water heaters don’t work properly.
Cheap, Friendly and Affordable ”
It was a great experience, owner was friendly. We could access WiFi near the Front Office. (Wish we could access at our rooms) Anyway, it would be better if Serene provided kettle so that we could have hot water for coffee or tea. We had to go at Front Office to get hot water. Overall, the experience was joyful and had lots of fun.
Simple and clean hotel”
This is the smallest air conditioner hotel rooms in serene hotel. Its simple and clean.
not worth the money paid.”
not worth the money paid. in the room was smell of canalization from bathroom. the room was not cleaned for all 3 days of our stay. right near the hotel, close to the rooms situated night cocktail bar ( working till 1 am). so, be ready not to sleep before 1 am. right after check in (when i looked in my room before give my passport to register us) hotels stuff came into my room and spray a lot of repellent (or whatever smelly) ....and this smell was in my room whole the day.. i dont know why they are doing that ( but i was very angry because of this occasion). all in all, i would not stay there again ( although, ko lipe resorts are all more expensive)
The staff were friendly. The location was good, along walking street. The room was quite spacious. Enough space to add an extra mattress and 3 luggages. Bed was comfy. Had tv but all thai channels. Bathroom was ok size. Hot water shower. Water pressure was good as well. We had some chairs and a table outside our room which was good for us to relax outside. Only major problem is the mosquitoes. But that’s obviously not the hotel’s fault. Overall was a great stay. Would definitely recommend and come back.
Good central location, clean room, hot shower,”
if you want to have access to all beaches then staying here is good. its not a resort, its a small, friendly boutique hut. but you could get a place with ocean view for cheaper without aircon. after being on all 3 main beaches, sunset beach had the best swimming and snorkling conditions so i would probably stay there next time. but you would be further away from the main strip where all the restaurants, bars, massage etc. are - so really depends what you are after. only complaint, to turn the light off you had to remove your key from the wall which turned off the aircon too - unless i couldn't find the light switch, i tried every one i could see.
