Excellent all round”
Where to start, was greeted pleasantly by the owner Yohann,who throughout the week was very helpful and his wife when required. Shown to the room by staff (also very friendly and helpful all week) of a good size, clean, bathroom basic, air con good, comfy bed (no wardrobes). Looking at other accommodation a long the same beach, and Wapi Resort looked the best for money, although there did look better resorts, but much more of a higher price. Wapi resort is situated central on Sunrise beach, a lot of tail boats in view in the morning, but soon disperse when the boatmen start work (boats visible all day at Pattaya beach).Ten minutes walk either side of wapi resort there are quite and lovely beaches. However, five minutes from wapi resort, a ship tanker calls to the island to take away all the rubbish, not visible from wapi resort, and would not be happy to stay in the accommodation in this area. Buffet breakfast reasonable to start the day, (fresh eggs and bacon) restaurant food good. Facilities okay, guests have free use of kayak, snorkels, masks, fins & bicycles. Took a walk to pattaya beach, very noisy with boats all day, limited swimming areas due to boats, beach not as nice sunrise beach. Overall an excellent stay at Wapi Resort, would definitely stay here and recommend to anyone, ideal location.
We stayed on Koh lipe half November and our stay was phenomenal. Wapi Resort is a little difficult to find in the beginning (we walked from Pattaya Beach to Wapi Resort, which is a 10min walk or so). Wapi is almost the last one on Sunrise Beach, which is very nice because it is calm and has magnificent views. The staff was superfriendly, always smiling and willing to help. They do efforts to make your stay the best as possible. Our room was clean and spacious. Nothing more, nothing less. Comfi bed, bathroom clean (looked a bit old because of the purple wall, but nevertheless perfect), airco. What I loved was that there was a water tap just outside the room so you could wash all the sand of your feet and go into the room without having sand everywhere. Great idea! Koh Lipe is a really lovely island, although it will get super touristic in the coming years I think. (try to go in low season - weather still good!).
Superbly pleasant stay at Wapi resort with friendly owner and helpful staff! The family seaview cottage was just like in the photos - clean, neat, pretty and well-maintained. Despite not arranging for pickup service with the hotel, we were surprised and gratified that 2 motorbike taxis were waiting for us when we arrived at the immigration office. They also provided similar services on our departure day. Breakfast was pretty basic but adequate to kick start a relaxing day by the beach or a tiring snorkeling trip. We booked for the Plankton and Sunset Trip with the hotel owner and it was truly an amazing experience to swim in the dark with the bioluminescent glowing plankton. The hotel was within walking distance to the Walking Street but the road leading to the hotel was kind of poorly lit up. So it is advisable to bring along a torchlight or just use the handphone for light at night. There were tons of massage shops especially along the Walking Street but getting a massage by the beach just 10 steps away from our room was a totally different experience. All in all, it was an enjoyable getaway despite not having the opportunity to enjoy the famed sunrise or sunset at Koh Lipe due to the unforgiving weather during our 3-day stay!
Wapi Resort was at a great location. It is located right along the water and there are good places to go snorkeling near by. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly. Also the breakfast every morning was great. My favorite was the yogurt. It was some of the best yogurt I have had in my life. The owner was very helpful and kind. Upon coming to the island I had very little cash and was without a debit card due to fraudulent charges back in Bali. I asked the owner if he had venmo so we can exchange funds unfortunately he did not, but he pointed me in the right direction and told me about a restaurant(Cafe Tropical) owner that might be able to help me. We were able to exchange funds on paypal and I had a more pleasant stay on Koh Lipe. I must say that I had a very good experience on at Wapi Resort and Koh Lipe. There is an exceptional community of people on Koh Lipe!!!
Wapi Resort is ideally located just off the end of the walking street on the mid-northern end of Sunrise Beach. There are only two beachfront bungalows, they are big, nicely appointed, comfortable, and what a view! The restaurant serves a nice breakfast and a great lunch. We would have been happy to have dinner there, but they close up around 7pm which is a little early for us. We dined next door at Sunrise Beach Restaurant - it was GREAT! We might have gone back for dinner the next night but they were closed. We were recommended to Zanom, where the food was good, but the service was very slow and there were NO fans anywhere - the breeze on Sunrise tends to drop in the evening. Koh Lipe is small and more remote than other Thai islands, so lodging is much more expensive there. Taking that into consideration, Wapi's value was well within local norms.
Lovely place, rooms, breakfast and staff”
We where here at Wapi Resort during december. Its located perfect just a 3min walk from walking street and just within the sunrise beach. We lived in all rooms here and the rooms are great. Clean and light. Sunrise beach was a bit windy now in the beginning of december so Pattaya beach is better if you want to stay on the beach all day. But it obly takes you 10min to walk there through the coasy walking street. The staff here is very friendly and the breakfast and food is great! You get free beachtowels, sunbeds ,snorkling gear from the hotell and they clean the rooms everyday. I would really recommend this place for everyone! Also Koh Lipe is a must!
A wonderful place on a gorgeous beach”
Wapi resort is a very charming resort directly on Sunrise Beach. The rooms are clean and located around a beautiful lush garden ,with a few bungalows directly on the beach. There are plenty of sunbeds, hammocs and salas to rest and enjoy the view, with lots of natural shade thanks to the trees. The restaurant makes great thai food and directly overlooks the sea. The owner and his staff are very friendly and helpful. I thoroughly recommend Wapi resort for a wonderful beach stay on Koh Lipe
Very beautiful bungalows near the beach ”
The wapi resort is very beautiful and it was a great stay there. The bungalows were near the beach, very clean und had a great equipment. There was also a safe, a beach bag etc. The bed was so comfortable! The bungalow was very quiet. The beach in front of the resort was a dream. Crystal clear blue water und very comfortable beach chair. The walking street is near the resort. Only 5 minutes to walk. We had breakfast every day. It was one of the best in our whole time in Thailand! So delicious! They had fruit salad, bananas, hot chocolate (so tasty!), coffee, fruit juice, warm noodles or rice and the best cake ever!!! :-) If I will come back to Koh Lipe, I will visit the wapi resort again! Was a great stay, thank you!
Chill out resort”
I couldn't ask for a better 1st trip to Koh Lipe. We were instantly welcomed by Wapi Resort. The owner and every staff were very kind and easy, they were all super helpful. Sunrise Beach is just right infront of your doorstep, and also walking distance to Koh Lipe main walking street. We thought the breakfast was sufficient too for us, and with that view you really can't complain. Thank you for the beautiful experience, we will be back again. :)
Great, romance, peaceful, relex, comfortable, frie”
Memorable we were on honeymoon and this was the perfect place to stay.The beach is 20 meters away and is lovely and windy.Nice sunrise. Windy at night, but best beach by far in Koh Lipe. Not crowded, beautiful for snorkelling and relaxing.The standard of the bungalow was great, with a really good bed. The cleaning were not so good. We had to tell the reception when we wanted the bungalow cleaned and that was fine. The breakfast was good. It's located at a walkable distance (less than 2 minutes) to Walking Street and in front of the beach. Staffs are friends.They had the massage services by the beach side The only issue is the WIFI is not stable during our stay, there's some problem with the server. The service was also really good and we will definitly stay in Wapi next time we will go back to Lipe.
Nice cottages and friendly staff”
We stayed 6 days in Garden Bungalow G3 on the Wapi Resort. The bungalow is neat, has a large bed with a hard mattress, fridge, LCD TV and a spacious shower. The bungalow is cleaned on request. Wapi resort is currently being expanded with numerous new six bungalows. The breakfast is fine, no buffet but a choice menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The resort is located on Sunrise Beach. Despite the fact that Koh Lipe is one big building site, which we believe is detrimental to the bounty feeling, 'Sunrise Beach' is still relatively untouched and Wapi is perfect. Wapi is a short distance from Walking Street. (5 minutes walk) In Walking Street you will find several restaurants.
Good as Always”
Wapi Resort is nearly always fully booked in high season - with good reason. It's location on sunrise beach is superb, although only the 3 most expensive 'seaview' rooms are directly on the beach. The garden view rooms are fine, the 2nd row beach front are smaller, and semi-detached - with thin walls - which may be a problem for some people. the staff are all very friendly, and the owner was quick to help with a minor medical emergency (a plaster!!) I would stay here all the time, the breakfast is not the best but is adequate, but for value for money and location Wapi resort is hard to beat.
nice off-season getaway weekend”
We were travelling to Koh Lipe during June (low season). Wapi resort was nice surprise! the staff was really friendly, the room was spacious. Hotel was environmental friendly with beautiful beach. Kids loved playing with the toys, as they actually had spare toys for the children. I can recommend this hotel to couples, families with young and older kids as well. We also had teenage boys with us who spend their time in the ocean and biking around island (Bicycles were loaned for free!).
Amazing place right on the beach.”
We had a perfect stay at Wapi Resort.Staff were friendly and helpful at all times.The beach chalets were well decorated and a delight to stay in.Free transfer service efficient and of great benefit as bikes are they only way to get around the island.(They were waiting to transfer us as we arrived at the jetty point.) The only negatives were there was not a daily room servicing,you had to request it then it was no problem at all.Room WiFi is very slow and there are no English TV programmes.We felt they ought to ditch the TV's and provide tea/coffee in the rooms instead. Breakfast buffet good but the dining staff could do with smiling more! I would recommend Wapi for a great stay on Koh Lipe
Perfect stay for Christmas!”
We absolutely loved our 3 night stay at Wapi resort over Christmas! The resort was beautiful and the location on the beach was just perfect for the early morning sunrise. We loved the whole eco-friendly elements of the resort...the refillable water flasks and recycling. The staff couldn’t help us anymore, always friendly, smiley and happy to answer any questions we had. The resort offered complimentary beach towels, snorkels, hammocks and comfy beds on the beach. They also had kayaks and bikes available to rent. The nice Breakfast was served in the restaurant on the beachfront which was lovely to start the day. We had a main meal at the restaurant too - the best phanang curry we ever had. We were very sad to leave!
Amazing views and beach”
We stayed for a week at Wapi and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel's location in the middle of Sunrise beach is the best! The beach is wonderful and the clear waters are amazing! It is easy to kayak to off shore islands and snorkel, or snorkel right off the beach near the hotel. It is a short walk to all restaurants and shopping. The staff and management of this hotel are exceptional. My husband and I plan to return! Koh Lipe is quite a distance from Bangkok, but worth the time and effort! Ray and Mary Sparks, Bangkok
Unforgettable Memories in Wapi resort”
Myself with my girlfriends having two nights stay in Wapi resort and we are definitely enjoy the stay. Location is not a big matter because you will found how small is Koh Lipe. 15mins walk from west to east. They have all facilities that you could think about yet to price for hotel is that low. The owner is European and he like to talk very much about this island. I put cleanliness as 3 star cuz the floor is sandy.
Great place to stay and value for money!”
This is an excellent location to stay at Koh Lipe island! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is not too far from the pickup and drop off of the speed boat service to the island too (about 5-10 minutes walking or 2-3 minutes by motor taxi). I went in the off season (July). The owner was on vacation, but yet the staff made sure we had a great stay there. The location is excellent and peaceful! Breakfast was included in my booking and was a buffet in the morning - cereal (3 types), milk, eggs made to order, bacon, sausages, ham, toast, noodles/rice, juice, coffee/tea, fruits were usually included in the buffet and was a clean hearty meal. The resort provides free bicycles for going around the island and also free snorkeling equipment in case you wish to just snorkel off the beach around the resort (googles, breathing pipe, flippers). They also provided free umbrellas when it rained that we could borrow and replace. Staff was helpful and patient with providing local information when needed and chat up on local information. They were more our friends than 'staff'. We left the resort on the last day, feeling bad about having to part with them and the lovely island of Lipe.
Excellent rooms, location and staff”
We stayed in a Garden room for 10 nights in July. The Garden rooms are set back away from the beach but are large inside and have bigger beds than the Beach rooms. The room was great - huge bed, table and chair, fridge, a/c, tv, shelves etc, and a patio with 2 chairs and a table. As we came in low season, the resort was very quiet, and we usually had the beach to ourselves. The beach is lovely, but can get quite small during high tide. The location is great - right on Sunrise beach, good restaurants either side (Sunrise and Salisa), and a few mins walk to Walking street for more shops and restaurants. The staff on reception was very friendly and helpful. They cleaned our room straight away when we asked, and we bought our boat ticket back to Pakbara from them for a good price. In low season they only serve breakfast in their restaurant, and then close the kitchen for the rest of the day so you have to eat elsewhere. In low season, very little is open - just a handful of shops and restaurants, but the majority of the island seemed shut down. For us this was no problem, and actually meant we had a very peaceful stay. They are currently building another block of Garden rooms so you may hear some building noise, and when finished, will mean the resort has more people in. The Garden rooms are directly infront of a road that is used quite a lot by locals on their motorbikes so you can hear them driving past a lot. The wifi had quite a few issues and wasn't working for quite a lot of our stay. Luckily you can normally also see the networks of the Salisa and Sunrise either side of the resort (you'll need to get the password though).
Wapi resort is located at sunrise beach. The snorkeling in front of the resort is excellent. We had a great time. The resort owner is always there to assist whenever we need advise. Unable to book the sea view rooms so we stayed at the 2nd row rooms. The rooms are clean. Only 5mins walk to the walking street...many food choices even before reaching the walking street. Truly an enjoyable trip with a terrific resort!
