Bed extremely comfortable. Most of the staff very friendly. Short walk to the walking street. Lovely beach. Good happy hour 4-8! We ate in the hotel a few nights and the food was lovely (wouldn’t recommend pizza) but the Thai green curry was lovely!! Went during low season so the pool was very quiet and relaxing.
Hard to get clean pool towels. No variety at breakfast for English people. We were very sick of eggs on toast by the last day haha it is mainly aimed at Asian guests.
Akira Lipe is probably the best overall hotel or resort on Koh Lipe. We can say this with confidence after having stayed 9 Nights there at a Pool Access Room, even in Low Season (August). The location on Pattaya Beach cannot be beat. It's the best and prettiest beach on the island. White sand, crystal blue water, amazing. Akira's Front Pool is amazing, with amazing views of the water and beach. It's location to the Walking Street for restaurant and shop options is very good, quick jaunt down the beach. The front desk and house keeping staff was very kind, attentive, gave us lots of coffee, water, help with transportation to and from the island, picking us up from the ferry pier, etc.. We LOVED the pool access room, and the ability to step right into the water from our patio.
Staff at the bar and restaurant was just so-so. Seemed to be 5 or 6 people standing around most of the time instead of offering to take a drink order, only a few standouts actually doing all the work, etc... Food at their restaurant was also so-so. Seemingly quality ingredients, but typical with resorts, a bit overpriced for the mediocre taste or lack of favor. The breakfast needs more American / European options. You can tell it's catered to a heavily Asian clientele with the offerings. The toilet in our room did not flush well. It would take several extra flushes to get down even a small amount of toilet paper. Whereas the restaurants at the bar / restaurant did not have this problem. The sewage or water treatment smell at parts of the property isn't the most pleasant, and can be smelled from the plumbing pipes while in the bathroom. This is typical of island life though.
everything is wonderful~! best of best in pataya beach, if i visit Koh Lipe again, my choise is here~ thank you every staff~!
Rooms are really lovely & spotlessly clean. Staff go above & beyond to help. When my internet wasn’t working (because of my phone, not Akira’s WiFi) Julie let me use her phone to text my mom. So kind.
Breakfast was geared towards Chinese travellers. Omelettes & bacon would’ve been great.
professional service, good welcome. good breakfast nice pool at the beach (and DJ starts playing music in evening) original to have pool access from your apartment... but ...
pool is often noisy, so not relaxed in apartment, and of course limited privacy Koh Lipe has nothing extra to offer, and is way to troublesome to reach...
When you stay at Akira Lipe Resort in Satun, you'll be on the beach, just steps from Ko Lipe Pattaya Beach and 10 minutes by foot from Sunset Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
