We spent a very pleasant and enjoyable week in January at the Mali Resort. The resort is ideally located at the quite end of Pattaya Beach which contrary to other reviewers we found to be the best beach on the island, particulalry the stretch in front of the resort, sufficienty far from the many longtail boats and the floating terminal but sufficienlty close to restaurants and bars for dining on the beach in the evenings.
We stayed in one of the non-renovated garden bungalows which was relatively basic but adequate but which we understand will be renovated latyer this year. We had the opportunity to visit the Balinese bungalows and they are absolutely beautiful (if a litte expensive in high season).
The green lawn a few metres from the beach is quite on the island and makes for a relaxing place to sit and eat or drink (or indeed do the occasional work as we did).
The American owners are extremely friendly and go out of their way to provide whatever help and advice we asked of them. They really apply the American principle of customer satisfaction. If If we ever return to Koh Lipe, we would have no doubt where to stay!More
