Great spot on sunset beach on Ko Lipe. Taum and crew take great care. The place is beautifully rustic and totally charming. A nice private spot on Ko Lipe. Great breakfast and smoothies too! Don't ket the giant spiders in the trees scare you off… I never once saw one move!

The place is lovely with small beach and this is where it ends. We were looking for a different accommodation to stay at Koh Lipe and liked the bamboo huts at Bila beach very much. Based on the previous reviews we thought this place is a gem. The place has probably a potential but it is damaged by the lack... More

We arrived after 4hrs by speedboat in Koh Lipe and were looking forward to the bila beach bungalow because of the good ratings. After walking 15 mins (the way is quite hilly with a couple of tricky stairs) - we have found the place. We were told at the bar to sit down and wait a bit. We were basically... More

We travelled to Bila by long-tail boat from Sunrise beach to enjoy lunch and snorkelling off their beach. It's a chilled place with laid-back but efficient, friendly staff and great music. It's quieter than other beaches and hopefully it will stay that way. If you stay on Sunset beach you can easily walk there if you don't mind a big... More

If you want to blend into the locals and want to have a real relax place, this is the right one for you. My husband and I went there during our honeymoon, everything is in this place made from bamboo that gives this place the unique eco friendly touch.

It's a little hard to get to this place, but I think that's part of the beauty. We stayed here for a couple of nights then headed over to sunrise beach to stay somewhere "fancy schmancy" for the other part of our stay. It was nice and all on sunrise beach, but we found ourselves coming back to Bila beach... More

We stayed here for about 4 days in December last year, took a few days before we got into the pace here which is very slow and relaxed. But once we got the hang of doing nothing and being served great Pad Thai we found ourself to enjoy the place :) We did enjoy having the place almost to ourself... More

How does one describe paradise? This intimate, rustic, artistic gem in one of the worlds most beautiful settings is as close as we've come to pure bliss. Confused bookings and less than regular housekeeping and plumbing is all forgotten within seconds when weighed up against the superb ambience, hospitality and multiple talents of Taum - owner, musician, artist and brilliant...

Bila beach is a little piece of paradise! My boyfriend and I spent 5 idyllic days there and didn't want to leave! Tam & his staff are great and went out of their way to spoil my boyfriend on his birthday arranging a birthday cake, fire dancing, sky lanterns & making him a necklace & bracelet.
