Z Touch Lipe Island Resort
Gecko Lipe Resort
The Box Lipe Resort
The roomy wood bungalows with hammock-laden terraces, cushions everywhere, overhead fans and fabulous, modern-meets-naturalistic bathrooms are the most chic on Lipe.
One of the few places that’s still locally run, the striped bungalows here are your standard slap-up wooden affairs but the beach is fantastic, the flowery back garden charming, and the restaurant has the absolute best and cheapest seafood grill .
Park Accommodation is provided near the ranger station at Laem Son. There are bungalows, longhouses and facilities for camping. A small restaurant provides basic meals.
This big resort has views from its hillside location out over Ko Adang. Winding wooden walkways lead down to the sublime beach on Sunrise Beach’s northern sand bar.
This collection of weathered bungalows with hard beds is the only resort on imperfect yet golden and swimmable Sunset Beach. It’s rustic but the best deal on Lipe for a terrace on a private beachfront.
High design has arrived on Lipe. With slanted roofs, concrete-and-glass walls, flat-screen TVs, a shingled exterior and floating decks out the front, the digs are more like futuristic pods than beach bungalows.
Inland from Sunset Beach, this sunny compound filled with flower and shell mobiles has tiny bamboo huts with small sleeping mats and attached semi-outdoor Thai-style bathrooms.
This place captures the look of Lipe’s pirate spirit with a range of bamboo bungalows and lofts. The best are large with indoor-outdoor baths and hammock-strung terraces.
One of Pattaya’s more attractive small resorts, its best nests are the two-storey thatched wooden bungalows with a downstairs living room and top-floor bedrooms that have sliding doors opening to sea views.
Sita Beach Resort
The most upmarket choice on Hat Pattaya feels a little like a Southern California apartment complex but it’s very comfortable with rooms spreading from the beach to high on a hill.
This place has a killer bamboo reggae bar and beachfront restaurant below stylish cliffside bungalows set on and above a tiny, private white-sand cove, which is strewn with boulders and adjacent to Sunset Beach.
