    This Is The Place To Be On Samui!!!”

    Friendly staff, tranquill location, comfortable rooms

    We LOVED this wonderful, family run hotel. ALL staff were lovely, attentive and cannot do enough to help you. Scooter hire (only 200baht p/d) great for exploring the Island (on your way back from a day trip during sunset, you should check out the Intercontinental Hotel on Nara Road- the view is to die for and it's a nice drive back to Lipa Bay. A great nearby restaurant to visit on your scooter is The Terrace. Breakfast at Lipa is good- no buffet, you can choose your own off a menu, from eggs and bacon, to fruit and yoghurt. The lunch and dinner menu is reasonable and tasty. The infinity pool is great for relaxing- the beach is cleaned up every morning as items do get washed ashore, mainly seaweed etc- but this is EVERYWHERE on he west coast. AND It is definitely worth staying on this side of the Island for a great time away from the seedy, dirty and overpopulous Chaweng area, offering cheesy themed night entertainment and with market stall vendors not giving you any space to shop. The sunsets are breathtaking here- PLUS, it only takes half hour to ride to the other side of the island (Check out Lamai beach.) The rooms at the hotel were perfect- clean, modern and comfortable. Lovely balcony overlooking the resort and part of the beach; the bathroom was spacious and separated into a toilet + shower, and bath + sink- great if you and your partner need to get ready at the same time! Room was serviced everyday and fridge was well stocked :) In walking distance from Lipa Bay are other hotels and 1 restaurant- 'Big John's', good for Thai and Seafood. Then a couple of cocktails and a night cap at Nikki beach is recommended. Absolutely no problems or criticism with Lipa Bay, it was the perfect hotel for a relaxing stay. The owner was a star too, he drove us to our next hotel for a cheaper price than the taxis. We also spotted him as we were waiting at the port to get back to the mainland and he was still trying to help us with bags, etc! Truly hospitable.

    Friendly staff, excellent amenities, beautiful beach for swimming, many food options nearby

    lipa bay resort is a small 'resort' on a very nice beach at lipa noi on the west side of koh samui. we stayed in a garden villa (5 days) which was small but nice. the staff are very friendly and helpful. we were surprised that such a small resort had a resaurant at all, never mind such a good one. breakfast is mostly western breakfast food, with some thai options. the lunch and dinner menus offer a wide variety of dishes, and the quality is excellent. we got engaged at lipa bay resort, and although the honeymoon suite was booked, the staff were very helpful in arranging for something special to mark the occasion. we highly recommend lipa bay resort.

    Highly professional staff

    When we arrived on Samui at the pier we were collected by the driver who was very helpful and friendly. After checking in to the room we hired a motorbke from them and went out for the day, unfortunately whilst we were out my girlfriend was bitten by a mosquito and contracted dengue fever! The hotel staff were absolutely amazing, helping us and checking up on her regularly. The driver also took her to a nearby clinic and helped to arrange an appointment for her with the doctor. We stayed there for four days and were completely happy with everything. The view from our room was stunning, the free breakfast included in the price was tasty, the private beach was lovely and the staff were perfect! This truly is a home away from home! We were also traveling with a small dog and they were also very accomodating and helpful with him. All in all this hotel pushed the boundries of normal service and we both left feeling happier about the world in general! Thank you again Lipa Bay resort for all your help and support and we will be paying you another visit on our next trip to Samui.

    One of the best white sand beach of the island. Infinite swimming pool. Value for money. Incredibly helpful staff.

    We just arrived to ko samui from railay beach where the price of 1night there were going to pay our 4nights in lipa Bay. When we saw the hotel we were really happy as it wasn't a very tourist area so the beach was not crowded at all even when it was beautiful. It was the paradise completed with kind, helpful and friendly staff. We also travel by motorbike around the island to realised that other famous beaches in ko samui were nothing in comparison with the lipa Bay one. I would definitely recommend everyone to leave the famous North and East of the island and enjoy the beautiful beach of lipa noi beach in lipa Bay resort

    Lovely, family run hotel and great value for money”

    Clean, nicely decorated rooms, wonderful staff, close to Nikki Beach

    Lipa Bay Resort is one of the cheaper hotels on Lipa Noi Beach and we found it excellent value for money. The area is very quiet with the main attraction being Nikki Beach Resort (Ibiza style, luxury beach club with DJs and champagne!) this hotel is next door to Nikki Beach so a great option to stay if Nikki is out of your price range but you still want to use the facilities. Lipa Bay does have its own small infinity pool and restaurant, right on the beach which are both great. The garden bungalows are nicely decorated with quirky touches like the sea shell covered bathroom walls and lovely high ceilings. The staff went above and beyond to be helpful, even driving us into town themselves at cheaper rates than local taxis.

    Big room, clean, very close to beach

    we stayed one night at lipa bay as we were transfering to koh phangan the next day. we had a superior sea view room with balcony, which was a good size and was clean. the pool is quite small but the beach is right on the door step so it didn't matter too much. a quick walk down the beach ensures a nice quiet spot to lie in sun and enjoy the views. we both had lunch at the restuarant and the thai beef salad i had was excellent. the staff were really warm and welcoming and arranged our taxi and boat tickets to koh phangan for the next day. great resort for a short stay as close to nathon, nikki beach resort is a cool bar and restaurant next door, if a bit on th pricey side!

    lipa bat resort is ideal if you want to get away from it all and relax. my wife and i spent 10 nights there on our honeymoon and could not have wished for a better holiday. all the staff are friendly and helpful the rooms are spotless and cleaned daily with clean beach towels every day. the included breakfast is basic but cooked to order so always hot and the lunches and dinners we had in the pool bar/restaraunt were great value for money although the choice was a little limited. the only complaints i have were the building work next door and the disco on saturday night at the nikki beach resort neither of which spoilt our stay or were under the control of the lipa bay resort. top holiday and we plan to return!

    Nice place, but very compact”

    staff, beach, quiet location

    The beach area was nice, but the staff did not clean it up at all, so there was quiet a lot of garbage on the beach in front of the place. Nice sand though. The resort is really compact, no space to hang out except in the small restaurant or on the beach. You have to walk through the restaurant or the beach to get to the pool. I honestly expected the place to be nicer than it was, but it was still okay. It was very crowded, while other nearby resorts were almost empty. I don't understand why. If I had known how things were beforehand I would have chosen to stay at the Lipa Lovely resort, with large grounds and gardens and restaurant. But Lipa Lovely seemed almost empty. The guests were all either Russian or German. The Russians were not friendly at all, even the ones with young kids the same age. Too bad, would have been nice for my son to make a friend or two. There was a lady in the restaurant who could not get any orders correct. Every time she made a mistake. She never smiled or apologized. I speak fluent Thai, so understanding me was not the problem. Unless you order the breakfast with eggs, the servings are so small, not enough to fill you up. They give you a tiny pancake and then want to charge you 60 baht for an egg (eggs cost 3 baht at the market). Finally we convinced them to give us enough food. We have stayed many times in Samui at many places and Lipa Bay was just okay. Nothing special. There was a lot of undeveloped land around the place, but still plenty of restaurants to choose from. Potential for construction nearby in the future. The Nikki Beach resort was nearby and cranked out LOUD music several days in a row, all day. Other reviews say Lipa Bay is good for kids. I don't see why, there are tons of dangers all around like slippery surfaces, sharp corners, etc.

    A perfect place for an affordable price”

    Good beach, friendly staff, clean rooms

    we had a very pleasant stay at lipa bay resort. we took 2 rooms (for 4 people), one of them was superior, another one was superior sea view. the difference was not big - the "sea view" rooms were on the 3rd floor (while superior was on the 2nd), plus "sea view" had a kettle, tea cups and daily tea/coffee. the breakfast was included and was fine. the beach was very nice, but it was quite shallow in the evenings. the boats (kayaks) are free of charge for hotel guests. the staff was very friendly, helpful, spoke rather good english. there were no loud parties nearby, so it was a very relaxing and pleasant stay there.

    Fantastic for us”

    Quiet, beautiful, fun at Nikki

    we love this place though we originally booked a beachfront villa but it was behind the kitchen and noisy. the bed was enormous but left no space in the villa so we inspected a standard hotel room on the 2nd floor with balcony. result: we moved there for 3 weeks and had the best time. the place is modern, comfortable, minimalist, very clean and the views are as good as it gets. the staff are fantastic, the location very special beautiful sunsets etc. thank you to mr chaiwat and each one of his fab staff. on the eastern side of the island i.e. chaweng; well if being packed in on a beach like sardines, con artists etc but great night life are your thing great! however we would rather visit there and 'come home' to lipa bay. and on sundays they have 'brunch' 2 'doors' down atnikki beach (check the web) it is fabulous. also eating at big johns about 8 doors down, i will never stay anywhere else on samui

    Great & cosy family run hotel with great service”

    Service, rooms, surroundings

    We only stayed 3 nights at Lipa Bay Resort and wished it would have been a little longer. No drama whatsoever to check-in, which was nice after a 24-hour trip. Rooms were clean, spacious and had a fantastic view which more or less every room has! Staff (which is a big family from my impression) is the kinda staff who can fulfill/solve more or less all the worries or questions you have, which is a fantastic thing when you're travelling and as a guest. Free kayak for hire along the beautiful bay. OK breakfast. prices in restaurant little expensive compared to local food round the corner, but still fair prices.

    Beautiful setting & unreal views. Super relaxing. ”

    We arrived off the Raja Ferry & intended to book accommodation nearby for our first night. This was absolutely perfect. Beautiful setting with an Infinity Pool overlooking Lipa Beach. Very quiet area/beach though. More top-end resorts & hardly any bars/restaurants. A scooter would be ideal. Although we used a local tuk-tuk driver and also hitch-hiked to the next town of Nathon. Ignore the inflated prices of taxis direct from the pier. Walk 10/15 mins and you'll pick up cheap transport. Resort was very quiet (early May) so we had beautiful sunsets at the pool, and breakfast alone at the bar/restaurant in the morning. Our room/balcony had a sea view. STUNNING.

    Lovely Boutique Hotel”

    Serene setting, proximity to airport and pier, nice restaurant

    Lipa Bay is not far from both the pier and the airport, so it's a great place to stay if you're coming from or going to one of the other islands and want to break your trip up. We stayed in a Garden View room for 1 night before heading to the airport for an early flight. The flow-through of the resort is pleasant, with guest rooms surrounding a lush garden that we enjoyed from the private porch outside our room. The room was clean and lovely, decorated in dark local wood with crisp white linens. Air con and water pressure were both strong. The beach and pool area are actually quite small, so despite the nice ocean view, I wouldn't stay here for any extended period of time. The few prime pool spots were taken when we stayed, so I took a chair on the small beach area, where the seats are set up like a tiny movie theater. The food at the restaurant was good, both for dinner and breakfast.

    Beautiful Setting. Quiet Location. ”

    We stayed here on our first night arriving in Samui via Raja Ferry/Donsak Pier. Its only a 10mins away. Other than the surrounding resorts, theres very little in this area. Scooter rental is essential. Taxis in/out to Nathon weren't in our budget. Theres a 7-11 a few mins away on scooter, walking distance 20mins. Hotel has a beautiful view over a great infinity pool - not huge but perfect for relaxing in. Included breakfast was very good. Made to order from a selection, not buffet. Rooms spotless. We had a sea view, stunning. Staff very friendly. Be warned: laundry costs are extortionate! Get it done elsewhere. Small, quiet, private beach in front of pool. Very clean & great for long peaceful walks. Night Market right outside hotel every Thur night. Small but lots of local offerings. Also a pop-up cocktail bar on beach on Thur night. Definitely good for a stay on first/last night, as so handy to the pier. Wouldn't stay here much more than two days. Too quiet.

    Perfect hotel between Nathon and Lipa piers”

    comfortable hotel, very clean and good design, the beach

    I would recommend this hotel for 1 or 2 nights in Samui. Very convenient place, near the Nathon and Lipa piers. The beach is beautiful, the hotel really comfortable, nice design and good service. One regret about the weither which was too cloudy to enjoy the beautiful pool. I would advise to take a superior with sea view for a couple of baths more. The ocean sea view is really exceptional so it worths it !

    Hotel location

    i have enjoyed my stay here at the lipa bay resort so beautiful position the view from my hotel room was the best part of this trip for me. this hotel is spotlessly clean and the people running it very nice. i will stay here again the best part about this hotel is its way off the main road you can get a great nights sleep but not too far away from the port ideal location really.

    Secluded Samui close to ferry pier”

    Friendly front desk staff, beautiful balcony view

    we stayed at lipa bay one night before visiting a 3 day trip to angthong national marine park and the night we returned from the park. we choose lipa bay because of proximity to the ferry pier but i would not recommend this decision because the price for the short taxi ride was still very expensive in comparison to the locations much further from the pier. when we reached the driveway to the hotel it was almost unaccessible by taxi because the drive was either washed out because of the rain, or it's under construction. down the bumpy drive (if your taxi agrees to take you) the hotel is on the right and there is a wall on the left. adjacent to the wall there was some kind of serious drilling going on (hopefully because they're working on the driveway?) so it made it difficult to get out of the taxi and collect our baggage. we were then warmly greeted by a lovely front desk woman who took our information and asked us about our plans on samui. when i informed her we were visiting angthong and leaving the next morning she said that the breakfast included in the price of our stay would not be available that early (6:30 am) so she would arrange sandwiches to be made for us to take on our travels. our room was clean, ac worked well, loved the spacious room of the bedroom and bathroom. the balcony was equally as spacious and beautiful. on our return visit from angthong we attended the complimentary breakfast which was made to order (a little slow, "island time" :) was either standard american breakfast or asian options like fried rice. i enjoyed the pancakes and thought it was quite a delight for being complimentary.

    ocean view from all rooms

    Lipa Bay was a good place for us to relax in the morning and evening after busy days. The staff helped us with absolutely everything. Nice beach for swimming and a bit small, but nice pool also. the breakfast has only a few different dishes. Restaurant area has a nice view of the ocean. Beautiful garden. Location is not central, 10 minutes driving to Nathon city. All in all a good stay for a very reasonable price
