We were fortunate to stay here for a week in March, just days before they were forced to shut because of the current crisis the world has. What an absolute diamond of a hotel. We generally try and avoid staying at hotels if we can as prefer smaller more private accomodations. The best decision I made before coming to Koh Lipe was booking our stay here. We stayed in a balcony room overlooking a small road and a mountain. We never got tired of soaking up our surroundings whilst sitting with a Chang on the balcony. The breakfast which was included in our price has to have a special mention. It was just oustanding. This was by far the most pleasant breakfast experience we have ever had when staying in a hotel. Whoever choses the music every morning has seriously good taste. The breakfast itself was just as amazing as the music choice. You have a choice of about six options. Beautifully and carefully presented and cooked. I really cannot say enough how much breakfast time was such a lovely experience in every way. The staff clearly have care and enthusiasm for thier jobs here. The hotel is perfectly located, quick walking distance to the hub of bars and restaurants and even the beautiful sunrise beach. I dont recommend staying in the thick of it on Walking Street and you neednt spend a fortune staying at hotels on the beaches as The Reef is so close to everything anyway with much more class and style than the expensive hotels dotted along the beaches! I wouldnt hestite in returning to stay if I every go back to Koh Lipe. Thanks to the whole team for giving us long lasting memories of a wonderful place. We miss being here!

We stayed here for four nights. Everything is within walking distance. Walking street 2 minutes. Sunrise beach 5 minutes. Sunset beach 15 minutes. Pattaya beach 10 minutes. The room was smallish in a small courtyard. But the reception area and bar were gorgeous, bright and airy. The breakfasts are amazing, the best in Thailand. Koh Lipe is the most amazing place in Thailand. Powder white sand with crystal blue seas. Hard work getting there but so worth the journey.

The reef is a perfect spot to unwind and discover Koh Lipe. We had a very pleasant stay and enjoyed its beauty a lot. The location is perfect and the service excellent. Hidden in a bit of a side street you get quiet nights but still you are close enough to the beach and the walking street. The hotel provides even a motorcycle shuttle to smoothen your travelling with your big bags. Ps. The breakfast served at Café Mojo is amazing.

Dear Patkash Thank you for your fine review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us here at The Reef. We know that the internet is slow at The Reef from time to time, at the moment we are looking for better options, but being on an island it is not the easiest to find as there is a bottleneck as the transmissions travels through antennas stationed on several islands towards the mainland. hope this explanation draws a picture why the internet is slow. Anyway thank you again for the review and we hope to see you again some day in the future. All the best The Reef

My wife and I stayed at The Reef for 2 nights and had a lovely time. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The pool was a great feature and offered a relaxing experience after a long day exploring the island. Crystal Bay is also just a short walk from the property, which offers great snorkeling from the beach. Thanks for a great experience all around!

Dear Ryan C Thank you for your 5 star review, but i am not sure you are reviewing the correct hotel. You see we do not have a pool and there is no crystal bay near The Reef. We are located on Koh Lipe in the Andaman sea in Thailand. It does us no harm that you have reviewed us, but your review is probably valuated high to attached to the right hotel/resort. All the best The Reef
