During our last visit at Koh Lipe we stayed at another resort at Sunrise beach but got in contact with Wapi and Johann when we arranged some snorkling trips. I highly recommend to use the service that they can offer, for arranging trips around Koh Lipe.

Johann arranged everything in a perfect way, both regarding the boat, food and drinks, to, as I see it, a very good and competitive price. You will see that he has been around and have the right contacts. Quick and effective!

We also had some lunch a few times at Wapi and the restaurant is well worth a visit, even if you are not staying at Sunrise.

The rating would have been higher if the price had been more affordable. We paid about USD130 per night for a beach front bungalow, which is not the average price we're used to for accommodation in Thailand. However it does seem like staying in Koh Lipe is more expensive than other parts of Thailand.

Wapi Resort has a great stretch of beach in front of it, on the best beach in Koh Lipe (Sunrise Beach). There's some pretty good snorkelling going on right in front of the resort, Wapi also provides provide free rental of snorkels and fins to their guests. Many friendly dogs wandering around the property, together with a tiny puppy. Its about a 10 min walk to Walking Street and convenient to get to anywhere around the tiny island. Breakfast at their restaurant comes with an amazing view of the sea. On a cloudless night, the view of the stars out on the beach was beautiful.

The room met our expectations and came with a great view, albeit partially blocked by the massage hut they have in front of our room. There was also a hot shower and aircon. The only thing is that they don't make up your rooms every day, so you have to request for it, if you require it. We stayed there 4 nights and they didn't step into our room once to housekeep or replace our bottled water, since we did not request for it.

French owner behind the counter is really helpful about places to go and where to go in Koh Lipe, how early you need to report for immigration clearance if you're departing to Langkawi. If there's one place I'd tell you not to go to in Koh Lipe, it'll would be Sunrise Beach. There isn't even a decent sunrise to catch there, the best sunrise would be on Pattaya Beach.

Room tip: Beachfront rooms are abit more expensive, but come with a great view! They are also nearer the reception.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Wapi Resort! The staff are very friendly! The rooms were clean, the towels soft, the beach view was darling and quaint, the price was just right, it was so quiet, it was just lovely. It was perfect for a little girls trip for three days. I highly recommend Wapi Resort! SO close to the best snorkeling I've experienced in Thailand.

Room tip: The three beachfront villas were so enjoyable! But each room is steps away from the beach.

In our never ending search for perfectly located, affordable hotels we love places like Wapi. Right on the beautiful Sunrise Beach where you can snorkel over to the small islands (they provide the gear free) and an easy 5 min walk to Walking Street where you can find anything you want. A stroll along there and you arrive at busier Pattaya Beach. We loved it.

We had a garden room, which was lovely - the rooms have a hose outside to wash feet which is genius! The room was clean, good size and good air con. Bathroom equally clean and good size (still wet room style though). The only fault we had with the room was that the bed was especially hard even given our experiences of hard beds in Thailand. Not sure why but it took some getting used to. This, however, was minor considering the privilege of staying on this breathtakingly beautiful island.

This place was a bit more expensive than we usually spend but for the stunning location it was worth it. Wish we could have stayed longer but we'll be back!!

The staff is very friendly and helpful! The owner definitely knows his way around the island and is always there to help you with questions. You can arrange almost everything at the counter! As well your laundry.
The breakfast is good and the location is just stunningly beautiful... I love it more then Pattaya beach because it is more quiet and as much as it is possible in Koh Lipe, the place is not a concrete kind of wall.
The beachfront bungalow where we stayed in was just the right size and gave a wonderful view. Just beautiful.
The Thai food they served is also very good and it's a pity that the did not yet posted there restaurant at the Trip Advisor because they have one of the better Thai food kitchens on one of the best location on the island.
As you can read we truly felt welcome and loved every minute of our stay.
Maybe there are cheaper and bigger places but we biked over the whole island (and it's not that big) and I think this is one of the best relaxing spots near the beach(es) and the walkingstreet (mainroad with shops, bars, restaurants and stuff), so good value for money.
Enjoy your stay if you go there!
