8 Best Koh Lipe Hotels and Resorts | Great Ocean Views


Located off the southern Andaman coast, Koh Lipe Island and the rest of the Tarutao National Park are unarguably among the most beautiful islands of Thailand. Due to their glamorous beaches and untouched diving sites, thousands of tourists, Thais, and foreigners visit the islands every year.

However, Koh Lipe and its neighbors are not very developed compared to other Thai islands like Koh Samui, Koh Lanta, Koh Tao, Koh Chang, or even Koh Kood. This fact makes finding suitable accommodations challenging.

Thus, I decided to write this article to lead you to the best Koh Lipe hotels so that you can select the right one that matches your preferences and budget right away.

Why You Should Stay on Koh Lipe Island

If you want to visit Koh Tarutao national park, it is a no-brainer to stay in Koh Lipe for the following reasons:

  • Koh Lipe is one of the few inhabited islands of Tarutao National Park.
  • The island has a far better infrastructure to support tourists than its neighbors.
  • Luxury resorts are available.

Apart from Koh Lipe, you can also stay at other islands like Koh Adang or Koh Tarutao. However, those accommodations are pretty basic, with almost no amenities or facilities. Reservations can also be highly challenging if you do not know Thai.

Hence, I recommend staying in Koh Lipe to make the most of your trip.


Below are our criteria for the best Koh Lipe hotels:

  • Private Beach – The hotel must have a private beach or be near public beaches.
  • The hotel must receive primarily positive reviews from actual guests: The verified review score across all review sites must be better than 90% of its peers. We also read those reviews and use such data to evaluate comprehensive service quality.
  • The hotel must provide good amenities and facilities that align with its official ratings (stars).
  • Free Wi-Fi must be available for guests.
  • Overall, the hotel must offer excellent value for money.
  • The hotel must have a fully-functional website and social media for guests to contact if needed.
  • If I had a chance to stay at the hotel, my personal experience must be positive.

Best Koh Lipe Luxury Hotels

These hotels are rated four stars and undeniably the best accommodations in Koh Lipe. Rates typically start at 100-150 USD per night during peak season.

Rooms of all types are spacious, notably, the most luxurious Grand Deluxe Pool Villa, whose size is 200 SQM, probably the largest in Koh Lipe. This villa has a private plunge pool, sundeck and a dining area to accommodate guests.

Ananya Lipe resort has been many travelers’ favorite for years due to its spacious, comfortable rooms, outstanding location (only 50 m from Koh Lipe walking street), comprehensive facilities, and spectacular ocean views.

  • Address: 433 Moo.7 , Koh Sarai Pattaya Beach, Koh Lipe, Thailand, 91000


All the rooms are refurbished in modern design fused perfectly with distinct Thai traditional elements, reminding me of a magnificent traditional Thai house dating back to the Ayutthaya kingdom.

Generally, the hotel has four room types as follows:

  • Deluxe Pool View/Pool Access (42 SQM) – all rooms have private balconies overlooking the pool

  • Address: 31 Moo 7 Koh Lipe – Koh Sarai District. Muang Satun Thailand 91100


Unlike most properties on this list, Ten Moons Beach Resort only offers beach bungalows. This means every room has an ocean view.

  • Garden Seaview Bungalow (40 SQM) – Located 10 m from the sea and surrounded by scented indigenous flowers

Although each bungalow is by far not the largest in Koh Lipe, it has more than sufficient amenities to enrich your experience, including snorkel gear that you can use at will.

All villas are in separate areas near the beach (but not the beachfront). Each is surrounded by a lush garden. Each villa has top-notch amenities, including a bathtub and a jacuzzi.

Facilities and Services

The facilities and services are what make Akira Lipe resort shine. Below is a summary of the facilities and services that the resort provides.

6. Bundhaya Villas

If you are looking for a sizable, luxurious villa for your stay in Koh Lipe, I think few have more to offer than Bundhaya Villas.

The resort is in the southern part of Koh Lipe, near Pattaya beach and within walking distance from Koh Lipe’s walking street (280 m), but not too close to be boisterous. Thus, you can stay undisturbed and comfortably find some good restaurants to dine in nearby.

  • Address: 147 Moo.7 T. Koh Sarai A. Mueng, Satun 91000 Thailand


The resort offers both standard hotel rooms and bungalows. Most of them are among the most spacious in Koh Lipe:

Best Koh Lipe Affordable Hotels

The following budget hotels are rated three stars. Still, they provide considerable amenities and facilities to help guests enjoy their stay. I found these hotels offer a good value for money. During some parts of the year, you can get a spacious room at 50 USD or even lower per night.

7. Chareena Hill Beach Resort

Chareena Hill Beach Resort is a relatively small hotel situated in an outstanding hilltop overlooking Pattaya beach. Therefore, all of its guests can appreciate a panoramic view of the famous beach directly from their rooms.

  • Address: 448 Moo 7 T. Koh Sarai, A. Muang, Satun 91000


This resort stands out because all rooms have spectacular ocean views. Each is well designed in a Thai wooden style with some contemporary elements.

The following are the room selections that you can choose from:

  • Cliff Seaview – 16 SQM
  • Grand Seaview – 18 SQM
  • Superior Seaview – 18 SQM
  • Superior Family – 20 SQM (the only room in the resort with a partial sea view. The rest has unobstructed sea views.)

  • Complimentary breakfast for all guests
  • Beachfront restaurant (no alcohol due to being a halal restaurant, but many other beverages to order like mocktails)
  • Kayak Rental
  • Island excursions and trips
  • Thai Massage
  • Shuttle Service

Bottom Line

Chareena Hill Beach Resort is undeniably one of the best options for budget travelers looking for a family-friendly property in an excellent location.

Its rooms are not as spacious as more luxurious hotels, but they are sizable enough for a couple to stay comfortably. Additionally, each has an unforgettable ocean view, plus full-fledged amenities to enrich your stay.

8. Castaway Resort Koh Lipe

This outstanding boutique hotel is an excellent choice for travelers looking for an affordable beach resort with marvelous ocean views. Castaway Resort is located at one of the best Koh Lipe beaches, Sunrise Beach, so you can swim in its turquoise waters and explore the corals.

  • Address: 448 Moo 7 T. Koh Sarai, A. Muang, Satun 91000


Unlike all other hotels on this list, all rooms at Castaway resort feature local, Thai southern-style bungalows in a natural setting built by local hardwoods that decrease the room temperature even without aircon.

Below are the room options available for selection:

  • Seaview Breezy Bungalow (32-40 SQM)
  • Beachfront Breezy Bungalow (32-40 SQM)
  • Garden View Breezy Bungalow (32-40 SQM)
  • Comfy Garden View (36 SQM)
  • Garden View House (54 SQM)

What I like about this resort is that it is one of the few properties in Koh Lipe that are eco-friendly. Apart from the 100% natural building materials, the resort uses high water, pest, and waste management standards to keep the hotel clean and environment-friendly.

Being eco-friendly is not without drawbacks. Each room does not have air conditioning, a hot water shower, and a television.

A lack of air conditioning may be scary at first, but, based on my experience, not a cause of concern. The sea breeze is enough to keep you cool during the day, while the temperature drops sharply during the night, so you will rarely feel the heat. In fact, when I visit the Andaman sea, I rarely turn on the aircon.

Suppose your room is still too hot. Just turn on the Thai-style ceiling fan. The fan alone substitutes the aircon pretty well.

Staying there will allow you to immerse yourself in nature more than in any other resort.

Facilities and Services

  • A beachfront restaurant and bar
  • Scuba Diving
  • Boat trips to Tarutao National Park
  • Spa and Thai massage
  • Water sports, arts, and crafts for kids
  • Yoga classes
  • Events, Retreats, Weddings

Bottom Line

Castaway resort is an optimal choice for travelers who are bored of standard hotels or pool villas and want to experience Koh Lipe in the most rustic manner.

All the rooms are clean, spacious, and environmentally-friendly. Most of them offer remarkable ocean views. The room rates are very affordable. These convinced me that Castaway resort is one of the most affordable hotels in Koh Lipe.
