Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the iPano for a week on honeymoon. the staff are brilliant, the room was WOW and everything was perfect.
Breakfast is a full spread and quality food - although they do tend to overcook the eggs but the Thai dont really do eggs for bfast themselves so they are forgiven :)
its far from cheap by Thai standards but you definitely get what you pay for by world standards.

We had the best beach ever. And just in front of the resort. Blue clear water beach, peaceful, nice.
Our room was great. Big bathroom equipped with a bath and a shower.
Two swimming pools. One in front of the resort and the other at the back.
Customer service very good too. The staff does everything to please the guests. (maybe too much).
Alcoholic drinks and breakfast need to be improved though.
The only problem is to go to the principal street with bar and restaurants after 6. No lights to guide you.

I have stayed in this hotel with my 2 yr old son in November.
I had a better expecation of the hotel, maybe that's why I am more disappointed.
Breakfast choice is very limited. understand that this is a small remoted island, however, we were not even served the egg because they ran out of stock.
Also, there is no ventilation in the bathroom and the drain wasn't good, there is always pool of the water after shower.
The kids pool was very very dirty and the main pool is too deep for my little son, we were left with no choice but to swim only at the sea.
Overall, it isn't that bad, however, if we travel with kids, this resort is not the choice for you.

A wonderful stay at the Idyllic! In case you are a first timer, here are some observations about Koh Lipe. It is still developing, and I noticed a lot of trash and broken glass on the beach this time. I don't think the island can support all the new construction and influx of tourists. If you have little kids with you, don't let them run into the sea with bare feet. Every day, I hauled in sharp items from the sea floor. If you have environmental concerns, maybe stay away from this island. The resort itself is lovely, and the staff are warm and welcoming: lovely people. You will feel very spoilt. (Don't forget to tip them.) Sometimes, the beach area feels confining: there are too many guests and not enough loungers. For some peace and beauty, walk down the beach, almost all the way to the Mountain resort. The beach there is absolute perfection, quiet and the best place to watch the sunset. I have such concerns about the trash and new development on the island, I probably won't come back, but I have very fond memories of my stay here.

Room Tip: Of course if you can afford any sort of sea view, go for it! The sea is gorgeous and that's why...

Everything about stay was awesome. I had a room in the garden and it was superb. The pool and the beach were very nice. The staff was very helpful. I recommend to everyone to stay here. The best hotel in Koh Lipe.

We arrived Koh Lipe from Langkawi (45 minutes boat ride from Telaga Harbour) with my hubby. For 1st timer, please travel light as this island do not have jetty. You may have to walk on the sandy beach to your resort too. No taxi along the beach or to the resorts. There will be boat shuttle from certain hotels, please check with resort upon reservation.
When we arrived at the immigration, they do offer assistance to contact respective hotels to send boat shuttle to pick you up. Otherwise, they will guide you to walk to your resort.
Our boat shuttle came, upon arrival at the Idyllic resort we were greeted by so many smiling staff waiting to help us alight the boat and assist with our luggages.
Will definitely come back to this resort again. It feels like home. Next door contructions, dont worry about it...they are not building a shopping mall : P
The hotel staff however, speaks limited English. Should you are Malaysian, you may try your luck asking some villagers if they can speak in Bahasa Melayu. This helps.
From Idyllic resort, if you wish to get to Walking Street, walk along the beach to VARIN VILLAGE (just after Castaway). Walking Street can be found just opposite of Varin Village.
They do have good Thai massage in the resort, which is the same price anywhere in the island.
Idyllic is situated at the corner of Sunrise Beach which is good as it is away and much more quiet.
I will definitely return again.

Room Tip: I-Garden or I-Sea is about the same. This is a small resort, so beach is just 1 minute from any of t...

I have safely arrived back to Malaysia and anticipating more travellers to stay at Idyllic Resort.

During my trip, I stayed at the i-SEA room. The package that I requested covered transport (boat and car) as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Food and Service at The Cove Bistro:-
* Rating of 3 out of 5.
*Apart from the set meals, the freedom to choose from a few different combinations of dishes to include starter, main dish and others can also be included.



Overall satisfaction with the room:-
* Rating of 2.5 out of 5.
*The inclusion of mosquito coil, indicator of hot or cold water for the shower and reduction in possibility of electricity breakdown (air-con) would have made my stay more pleasant.

Overall comments/recommendation:-
*Rating of 3.5 out of 5.
*Value for money.
*Introduction of staff tag/identification for staff members of the resort – recognition of staff names would help customers to identify them. It would be helpful for appreciation purpose.
*Suggestion to upcoming customers: Bring along extra bag packs/bag with zips.
- I did not bring along extra bag pack to store my items.
- The plastic bag that I passed to the speedboat operator for storage in the luggage compartment of boat also included my shoes and bag.
-Both items were missing upon my arrival at Pak Barra Pier.
- Avoid usage of plastic bags. If inevitable, kindly hold the plastic bag with you on the boat or avoid keeping any expensive items in plastic bag.


Thank you all !
