It was really a nice property. A place which is cozy, eco-friendly and surrounded by a lot of greenery. However, the room and the service quality we received does not tie with the amount that we have paid. The room that we checked in was rather small and packed even for only 2 pax. There is only one small walkway... More

This place is absolutely the worst "resort" of our trip. We thought that it would be cool to be in a room made of old shipping containers... NOT! The rooms did not have a door to the bathroom, and they had black mold ON EVERY SINGLE WALL! Every time we showered the whole room flooded, when we arrived the bed... More

The receptionist, his name Pat is good. very good customer service. No wifi in the room but sometimes u can get it in the cafe. Breakfast is nice but the portion is too small for me. Location is in the middle of walking street, so it is near to Sunrise beach and Pattaya beach. If you like to swim, better... More

This is the worst experience ever to stay this place! Totally ruined my holiday! I was booked a superior deluxe room for two nights from 25-27/3/16. We found that the bed sheet is dirty and a lot of stain! Water heater is slow and we spend about 45mins to shower! The wifi is totally cant connect in the room! You... More

The box is located in the middle of the walking street, easy to get to, easy to be found as well. The accommodation is nicely decorated, these are containers decorated with wood panels with nice plans around which makes it an impression you are in the middle of the jungle. Rooms are a good size, with bathroom, hot water, air-con... More

Very nice place, delicious food, very friendly stuff and boss. The Best pasta I've ever eaten: Los Lobos with serrano ham and truffle oil. All with good tunes at the background! Spent there great time with family and friends. Great value for the money. Will be back 😀

Although rated good on trip advisor we fell from one disappointment into another. After a HOT walk from the beach we were greeted very friendly with a cold glass of water and friendly personnel. After paying the bill however, it got worse pretty quickly. We got a (small) discount on the room because it was “closer to the kitchen”. It... More

Ever thought of waking up with a fat worm on your ceiling? You can experience that at The Box. Rooms are located in a garden, which was close to being a forest. There were insects and worms crawling on the ground and the next day, we found a worm on our ceiling. Not only that, the room and the bed... More

We ate at the Box and thought the food was good but very overpriced for where it is, on the walking street in Koh Lipe. Having previously eaten fresh fish at traditional Thai restaurants on the sea front of the island, we could not understand why we paid a lot more to have tapas in this noisy and hot restaurant!...

We stayed at Koh Lipe for 8 days, and visited The Box often because they had a great happy-hour offer from 5pm to 7pm. We fell in love with their mojitos, and we also tried the food and it was great. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was amazing.
