Here is a video of the restaurant and hotel main area at after dark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnOp6GTGLAQ

The resort is god with bungalows close to the beach. The resort is big. Standard bungalows in a nice setting.

The internet on the resort is censored!

The main problem is the NOISY beach.
The boats come and go all day. The beach next to the resort is not good to swim and bathe in. You have to share space with all the boats.
They have really ruined the beach. Go to the sandbar beach insted.

Room tip: Beware of the boat filled beach fumy beach. Resort is close to walking street... but then everything is. The island is small.

To Get there.
Ferries from Lanta island, Pak Barra pier on the mainland and Langkawi in Malaysia. From Pak Barra it is 64km on a Bundhaya speedboat with 900hp of outboards travelling at 50km/h. Another company speedboat with over 1100hp of outboards probably does it a little quicker. About 80m off shore you transfer via a pontoon to a local longtail boat for the final leg. There are no piers. It is a beach landing so your feet and certainly below the knee will get wet, dress appropriately. Next to the Bundhaya is their speed boat office and next to that is the Immigration office.

Long tail boats are for the most part very noisy. The ones here are generally powered by the general purpose, used for everything 100 odd CC diesel, most commonly used on paddy field tillers. There are no silencers. A good pair of ear plugs might be useful to you if you intend to go out on any island tours.

I will not make any comments about wheel chair access, if you have got this far you probably do not need a wheelchair.

we used the Bundhaya speed boat as it simplified matters and with their pontoon 80m off their own resort it simplified matters when landing. Other resorts use motorised golf type buggies for transport.
We stayed in a Garden Deluxe bungalow at just over 3000B per night and any comments I make are purely for that type of bungalow in that area of the resort.
On arrival one passes to one side of the dining area and into reception. It is pleasantly designed with all natural materials, probably rubber tree wood. A brick pathway leads through the bungalow area.
The bungalow itself is of a sufficient size for 2 adults and room for one or two small children. The interior is all wood lined, and comes with a 32" LCD TV with satellite. Only two channels are in English, Auntie Beeb news and one movie channel, however most people probably do not venture this far to watch TV. The room is also equipped with a keypad operated safe and a Fridge. The bathroom/shower area is also of a sufficient size with good qualifty fittings. There is an outside shower area with a high wall. Such a pity this area was not cleaned to the same standard as the rest. After mentioning the plastic rubbish that had been there for a while though it was removed immediately.The air conditioning is from what looks to be a 9000BTU unit which does take a time to cool the room in the heat of the day. From what I could see this sized unit was in general use throughout the island. At a guess I would say it is because of power limitations. The power station being a packaged 20 foot container sized diesel alternator set.

They do appear to have sufficient staff that rooms are cleaned promptly, indeed, replacements towels etc were waiting outside the room by 7.30 in the morning and were changed promptly when you left the room.

Breakfast was, I have to admit, very good. Unlike so many places the food was hot. Sufficient eggs, bacon etc to suit western tastes as well as local Asian foods and fruit.

We stayed a week, this was probably a little too long for us but this has nothing to do with this resort but all to do with the island.

The island is so small their are no cars and just a few private motorbikes and the local version of a sidecar. There are a few small mini trucks. A landing type craft beaches on Pattaya beach probably once a week and I imagine it brings in stores and takes recycled material off.
My impression of this island is through the eyes of someone who has lived in Thailand 24 years and married to a Thai national and has been travelling the world since 18, so the eyes are a little cynical.

This island is over exploited and drowning in its own rubbish. Quite a start I know but not too far off the truth. Pattaya beach is for the most part soft powdery coral sand with surprisingly clear emerald water. What a pity you cannot swim from it for the most part then. There are so many longtail boats operating all along the beach that I wonder how many accidents they have. The Bundhaya has a buoyed off area in front of their resort so at least there it is safe. Also a few too many dogs wandering around on the beach. I think sunset beach is probably the most quiet for boats.

Looking along the beach at the resorts and bars and restaurants it all looks very nice but to me it is a facade. Look behind and you will see a problem that is endemic to this country. Plastic, plastic and more plastic. It is something this country has yet to come to grips with. On Sunrise beach near the school where the lontailbotamen gather the beach is strewn with plastic water bottles. There is a recycling plant on the island, you can smell it from some distance off, there has been no attempt to limit its visual impact, broken glass along the small road does not help either.
We went on 2 island hopping boat rides for a bit of snorkelling. There was rubbish all along the tree line on all but one island. The beach you are taken to on Monkey island, yes there are monkeys so watch out for your belongings, is no different but here it was very sad to see whilst snokelling over the coral any number of glass/plastic bottles/cans/tins and rebar from an old mooring.

This is such a shame, these islands are beautiful, the crystal clear water with the brilliant coloured fish is a sight to be behold. I hope someone from the Tarutou national parks reads this and reverses the trend before it is too late. People do not come from all over the world to see this. Please also note that Foreigners pay 10 times what Thai nationals pay for entry into their national parks so a ticket for Tarutao national park for foreigners is 200B but this permits entry to any of their island for one week.

If you like diving there are several dive shops on the islands that undoubtedly take you to places which have not suffered in the way the above mentioned coastline has. Even with my previous comments, if you like just floating around off the beach with a snorkel it can also be very rewarding.

There are many restaurants, either on the beach or on the walking street. We found the beach restaurants cheaper, certainly for sea food and a much better view.

Would I go back to the Bundhaya - Yes. Would I go back to Lipe, probably not.

This was a trip for 2 at the end of March and the beginning of April 2012.

I would like to complain Ms. Jiravadee / Reception
We're check in on March 23 and out on 27. Her manners started from the first day that we checked in and the last day that we checked out. (Should be contact her when check in and out)
Her manners so bad including her tone and eye contact.

In the last day, my flight is 7.20 PM and we're booking boat to pick up on 1.30 PM. BUT she let us check out on 11 am.
I had told her for late check out at NOON but She not allow and talk a lot and a lot as her bad manners.

Her reason is "New customer coming on 10.30 am." We're check out on 11 am BUT no more new group come on that time."
During I'm stay in your resort I couldn't contact to Manager and couldn't get phone number.

I think the Bundhaya Resort has a prefect location which is in Pattaya beach . The Resort accommodation is average for Koh lipe's attraction . We booked a standard room with A/C we were given F010 , the room had a strong lemon grass smell once we walked in. My first impression of the wooden bungalow was ok . The bed was comfortable , the toilet however was so small that barely two adults can fit it , we had a two wooden chairs outside the bungalow for relaxation .The breakfast variety was ok too , there was a combination between asian and western such as Bacon , noodles , pan cakes , fried rice...etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful . I was really annoyed by the sound of the small boats on and off at the resort beach , if you don't mind the busy small jetty at Pattaya beach then I would recommend this Resort .
