Overall very friendly staff. They Spanish flavors are very authentic and traditional. Not to mention the accommodation is filled with luxuries. The air-conditioned rooms are... More

We stayed in this B&B over the Christmas 2013 for 4 nights. The place is built on eco containers and is a small place; the entrance to the hotel was via restaurant. As we were on holiday we were pretty chilled about the place, as the owner definitely added the “Manjana” mentality to this place and the staff. The room... More

I stayed one night at the hotel, when i first opened the room was so smelly. There has no door between bahtroom+toilet and bedroom. A bed will be wet when you have a shower. You will be awake during the night when your partner flush toilet.

The rooms are very basic and the light is too dim to read at night. But clean and well located in the middle of Walking Street. The owner was nice and friendly, and the breakfast of omelette and blue cheese was excellent! Will try to cook it myself when back home. Haven't tried the restaurant but simply because was no...

We stayed at the box for 3 nights. The rooms are located behind the restaurant and as many other reviewers have described them, are made of renovated shipping containers. Our room contained a comfortable bed along with good pillows, air conditioning, a modern bathroom and mini bar. We were really impressed with our room and could only find 2 minor... More

My 3rd visit to Lipe and my 3rd time staying here .. why? Because it's fantastic! This being the 3rd stay, I have to say how impressed I am with the minor improvements here and there. It goes to show that Jabi and Anne are constantly looking out to make your stay better and enjoyable. And to top it off,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE BOX started two years ago and is now a well established resort and a great meeting point on Koh Lipe's walking street. It is located in the middle of Walking Street. Pattaya Beach and Sunrise Beach are just 5 minutes walk away.The design of THE BOX is modern, minimalism, bio-climatic and Eco friendly.The resort has been created from discarded shipping containers, but you'd never know it; from the outside the buildings look like they're constructed from wood. Inside the rooms are clean and minimalism, with fan or A/C double bed, shower room, and western toilet. Very little goes to waste here, including the waste water from the showers, which is used to water the surrounding gardens.At the front of the resort, there is a small bar with a hardwood floor seating area. The Box also boasts Lipe's only Tapas bar, serving up famous Spanish delicacies such as Tortilla, Paella, Croquetas & Jamon Pata Negra. ... more   less
