“One of the best hotel of Koh Lipe”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Idyllic Concept Resort last March and we regret not to have booked longer ...
The hotel has an excellent location : at the end of Sunrise Beach which is I think one of the best beaches of the island as it is quite calm and not polluted yet by mass tourism.
This resort is quite exclusive : it is facing the beach, it has 2 swimming pools and must have around 20 rooms which are quite well fitted. We had an I-pool Comfy room that we paid around 165 € / night : it was a big room, facing the swimming pool and we could even see the beach from the terrasse.
The only negative points were that we were given a room with 2 single beds and that there is a lack of furniture : there was only a small wardrobe while the room is really big and there is no soap dispenser in the shower (only near the sink of the bathroom).
The resort is modern, it was built in 2012, a kind of lounge design, which might not be as charming as what you expect when you go to such a remote and small island.
The breakfast is served on a terrasse facing the sea. The buffet does not offer a huge choice but this was enough for me, food is really fresh (juices, fruits, meals, ...) and healthy. Anyway,
One of the best point of the hotel is the staff which is extremely charming and friendly. I have done many hotels in Thailand (both high and medium standards), staff at Idyllic are amongst the most helpful, welcoming and professional I have seen there.
I have visited other hotels of Koh Lipe island and I really don't regret my choice. There is another Worth trying or visiting if you like heights, Bungalow View Point which is next door to Idyllic, at the end of the neach.

Room Tip: If you like to have some privacy, I would not recommend to take the I sea or the I Sky rooms : there...

Our first trip to Koh Lipe wouldn't completed without the Idyllic. We stayed at the i-Sky beach front room. The room location is fantastic and highly recommended. We think it's the best room in the hotel as the beach is really 10 steps away. The staffs were very friendly and attentive. However, there were a few times that they didn't get my food order right but no big deal really. Nonetheless, we were very pleased with the food at the hotel as they were very tasty with varieties of selections. We walked around the island and Sunset beach was definitely the best choice as it was more quiet and cleaner than Pattaya beach. What disppointed us from this trip had nothing to do with the hotel but with the van and the speedboat transfer as they were so unorganized. Another let down was that there were so many garbage/plastic bottles around particularly on Pattaya Beach! In conclusion, we made the right choice to stay at the Idyllic. i-Sky room is definitely a room to go for. Sea water is crystal clear with many corals. Worth a visit and will definitely go back.

Really Hugh room and hugh bathroom. Hotel position is really good because it is near the end of Sunrise beach so you share the beach with less people. Opposite of hotel is Koh Usen which you can swim or canoe there. Food is a bit expensive but consider the cost of delivery everything from shore, I think it is reasonable. Very friendly staff and efficient.

Only complain is where to hang tower. There is no place to hang tower either in bathroom or outside.

Our stay of 5 nights at the end of April was wonderful. On arrival after a long walk down the beach carrying luggage we arrived and staff came from everywhere to help us. We were welcomed by a most impressionable young lady(day Manager?). and were taken to our I garden room. The sleeping area is small, the bathroom huge indoor shower & rain shower, very nice indeed. At dinner that night we were offered an upgrade to an I Sea room, The bedroom area is much larger, and the bathroom has outdoor showers,Even when it rained it was fantastic having a shower in the rain. Depending on how long you are staying all rooms would suitable.
The staff and quality of their work were excellent, always friendly, helpful and a smile, and all spoke good English.
The breakfast was excellent from Cerial to Cooked and everything in between .You can order Espresso coffee as well (cost). The position of the resort at the end of Sunrise beach is great, and you can swim or walk out to the Island offshore depending on the tide.
All in all we found this a most impressive Resort and Island, no cars or tourists on motorbikes, you walk everywhere as it is such a small Island .I don't know if I would go to the Island in the Busy season.Even though the Island is a long way from Mainland Thailand it is well worth the trip.
We would stay at Idyllic again and recommend it to others
To all the Staff there Thank you and well done.

Room Tip: If you want space go for the bigger rooms, cost is another factor.

We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights at Idyllic for our honeymoon in October 2012, and I reckon that our timing was perfect - just at the end of the low season and beginning of the peak season. I say this because the hotel was only about 40% occupied, and we didn't have to fight for daybeds. We even managed to get the same ones all 4 days we were there. We also got lucky as it never rained throughout our stay there.

Rooms: Simple and cozy - we stayed at the i-Sky rooms because we wanted to be right on the beach. A nice balcony opens up to the stunning view of the blue waters of the beach. We had no complaints of the room. Everything worked well and the rooms were kept very clean. It was pleasant to have our towels folded in a different motif everyday.

Food: Our stay here included the buffet breakfast. The array isn't as much as your 4 or 5 star hotels, however, there is a decent variety which tasted splendid. Eggs and sausages are made to order and fresh juices were provided daily.

We also had a special private candle light dinner on our first night there and the food was AMAZING!! The setup was just outside of our room, by the beach. Orn (person in charge of F&B) was very attentive to our needs and made us feel so welcomed throughout our stay.

We had several other meals during our stay there and it never failed to disappoint. While you're there, please remember to try the butterfly pea flower drink - the perfect thirst quencher on a hot afternoon. And we reckon this hotel had the best tom yam (try the one with the coconut milk) and pad thai on the island .

We must also mention Pia (person in charge of the front desk). She was very warm and constantly made sure we felt right at home throughout our stay. She assisted to make the arrangements for our snorkelling trip and packed lunches were provided.

Although you will find a lot of massage outlets along Walking Street that are cheaper than that at the hotel, we recommend the one at the hotel. The two ladies were simply incredible and you're sure to be completely relaxed after the session.

Apart from the hotel, Koh Lipe is an amazing getaway for those wishing to take a breather from the city. It's very reasonably priced and the food at the hotel and the Walking Street is truly a feast.

Be sure not to go during the peak season as I've heard it can get terribly crowded. And prices are almost double throughout the island.

Thank you Idyllic for making our honeymoon truly memorable. We will be sure to return again.

We stayed at Idyllic during Songkran break and had a very pleasant stay. The staff was friendly and most of them spoke decent English, especially at the front desk. The room we stayed in had direct access into the (back) swimming pool from our deck. The pool in the back is very nice. The pool near the beach was smaller and looked like it needed a bit of maintenance. The breakfast was very good with several options and dinner was very tasty. We were never disappointed with our food choices. One of the days we were stuck inside our room because of the rain but the hotel offers a large collection of DVD's which was a great way to stay entertained. The beach in front of the hotel is not dirty! It is beautiful and idyllic, indeed! I would stay on this beach over Pattaya beach every time as it is just beautiful and has a lot less long tail boats and crowds. I would definitely come back to this hotel and recommend it to friends and family.
