“there are better hotels on Ko Lipe”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We booked at Z Touch ''Resort'' one month before leaving. We read the reviews on TA and crossed our fingers. We arrived by ferry from Trang and were taken to the beach by long boat, only to be greeted by the sight of the garbage barge ( which had obviously been there for a few days - what a stink!). Luckily, the hotel was down wind and didn't smell too much and the barge left late the next morning. The hotel grounds are run down, the pool is murky and not at all inviting. The nice local family who runs the place make it obvious that it is their space - the children use the pool, and in the afternoons and evenings, the restaurant/bar/recption is used as their tv family room. The rooms are quite large and comfortable, but our 'garden view' room had a view of the open kitchen (which is covered up a bit by a bamboo blind). There is no ambiance what so ever at the hotel and there should be some kind of rule about using the word 'resort' as this is definitely not one. The place has lots of potential, but they need to make massive improvements to the grounds, the pool and the general atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was quite nice. There is a great bbq resto every night beside Z touch on the beach. Overall, the rooms are way over-priced for what they are.

We stayed in the standard room for one night. The standard room is very simple but it meets all the basic requirement of a room except the water supply in the room is too weak. The room is clean. Buffet style breakfast, is basic but is acceptable. The swimming pool was not available during our visited. At night, the environment is dark enough for you to see star in the sky. The location for swimming in the sea consider good along the patong beach. The location is quiet compare to the crowd area in Patong beach (near the walking street).

The location is perfect: on the beach, 5 minutes away from the walking street with shops and restaurants. Close enough to come and go, and far enough to be away from the "crowded" area (altough Lipe is not really crowded). Nice swiming pool on the beach, breakfast is good. Our room was really small and with a bad view, but we didnt care since we only went there to sleep. Very nice staff. It is also good that you have a massage service on the beach or at your room. And there are a couple of good restaurants in the hotels by its side.

It located in front of the beach where you can just having breakfast on the beach with nice and cool atmosphere. Walking just only seconds to walking street and night time restaurants on the beach.
The staffs are friendly with a genuine smile promptly helping us during stay.
Will come back!!!

The room we stayed is the Garden View Room (Studio Villa) which has an additional little hall for TV or perhaps your would like to add 2 more beds for kids to sleep which is big enough.

Toilet is small though but remember to bring your own toothbrush and stuff as they do not provide.

The beach of this resort is the commercial ones which you might find plenty of boats and people hovering around to get the their hotel, so it's the least peaceful part of it. The Sunset Beach is very peaceful!

Cleanliness wise, it is clean!

Breakfast : It's american breakfast, but without omelette and bacon, but they have their local fried rice or Pad Thai depending on their rotation. Overall it's good!

Feasibility : It's not easy to get anything within 300 meters of this resort, but well, in Koh Lipe there is only a street of shops and restaurants which is the Walking street which is about 300 meters away. But all are within walking distance! Bike for rent is 200Baht per day, but motor i'm not sure as I manage to see one written for hourly rental

Tips : Get your beers from Walking street, which the first or second stores are selling Chang beer can for 30Baht only, stock it up, as your hotel will charge your 60Baht per bottle which is about 20ml difference only from a can! :)

Beach : Very beautiful, you are able to see thru the clear blue water!! but be careful of the Sea Urchin! there is a lot around the corals!

Activities : Snorkeling is about 400baht for 4 hours which they will bring you around to 3 little islands which is absolutely worth it! go for it!

Friendly Case : My girlfriend stepped onto the Sea Urchin and one of the ladies took a bottle of vinegar and an empty beer bottle with some swab. She clean the wound with the vinegar and swab and she starts hitting the wound softly with the empty beer bottle. Surprise surprise, after a few minutes you would see the toxin that the sea urchin released will subside. :) she helped us all the way thru, really appreciate it!

Room Tip: If you are getting the beach front rooms, go for Room 6, as there is one room right in front of the...

We were on a family holiday. Five adults and two small children. We arrived by motor boat and word was put out that we had arrived. Very helpful staff collected our bags on the beach. We were taken to the reception and given drinks whilst we filled out our forms.
Altogether we spent 13 nights there. The rooms were basic but clean. The restaurant is good and the all inclusive breakfast is very good value and done on a self service basis. We enjoyed eating there for other meals. The staff are lovely and very attentive.
Recommended is the Thai massage given by very professional staff. We spent a lot of time on the sun loungers on the beach. I say beach it is lovely white sand. We did a lot of snorkelling from the beach and Z-Touch arranged a fantastic snorkelling trip for us. A short distance away is the "Walking Street" the only street on the island where the "shops" and restaurants are. Koh Lipe is a small island and it was not far to the other side where there was another lovely beach.
It takes some getting to but great fun and well worth the effort.

Room Tip: We chose the family villa which had two large bedrooms and a lounge. It was basic but clean and comf...

Upon arrival, we were greeted whilst stepping off the ornate long tail boats and our bags were taken across the short stretch of beach to the check in counter. Chilled OJ was served to us as the rooms were sorted and the key was handed over. The garden villa had A/C and although the deco was simple, it was sufficient. As the resort is located right in front of the beach, we took a quick snorkel and within 10m of the beach, we already saw an abundance of marine life!! The lunch was tasty and left me wanting more. Walking Street was minutes within the resort which allowed easy and quick access to most things. The massages Z-Touch offers was amazing and I had a rub down on a daily basis (either in my room or on the beach) along with a cool drink in its beachfront pool. Overall, this stay was magnificent! Unbeknownst to me, this resort is receiving reviews that do not do it justice! The staff are very friendly, the rooms are comfortable and everything is reasonably priced. After a quick complaint about the open kitchen, they hastily set into progress the building of a proper one. I'd say one of the only flaws would be the not-so-strong shower pressure or the mosquitoes... Definitely staying here again

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back are quaint, yet quieter and the beachfront rooms are beautiful
