Norbert the coral reef guy is very helpful and explains how fragile the local environmental. I will be booking up again to go in November! Highly recommended. The massage team are fantastic and the view out to sea is the best I've ever seen. Book now, you will not be disappointed!

          Little peace of heaven ”

          I booked at kathalee initially for 4 night but ended adding a 5th one . This small resort is located at the very end of sunrise beach, and enjoys a beautiful quiet little creek. Most of koh lipe beaches are full of longtails boats so it’s really appreciated . Perfect place for snorkeling and kayaking or just laying on one of their sun beds . This hotel is run by a very nice thai woman , always friendly and helpful . I read here and there some bad comments about a German guy being in this place ,rude sometime and unfriendly . As for myself I met a very nice guy, from Germany also , very concerned about the coral reef and the damages that can be done by some tourist and even customers . Can’t believe it was the same person :)

          The owners are so warm, friendly, and helpful! They provide free snorkels and beach towels for guests and free breakfast (a buffet style with several options and eggs cooked however you please). They checked in on how we were doing often and offered helpful advice to plan our day. Seriously such lovely people! The views were gorgeous, rooms were spacious, private, and comfortable

          Private corner to the beach”

          I got the sea view room and the view was breathtaking. I loved the private corner to the beach, wasn't open where people keep walking across you like the other resorts. Staff were friendly and helpful. The fridge was big, enough to accommodate the drinks my friends and I brought. Breakfast selection was mediocre, you can always walk out for food. Walking street is 30mins away or theres a feeder van your can take if feeling lazy.

          The best view and amazing breakfast”

          The rooms have a great view over the ocean, it’s really amazing to look at. Beautiful sunrise! Because of the glass doors the room is very light. The breakfast is very good. It’s a buffet with a lot of choice and very good taste. The WiFi is mediocre. The bathroom has a sink next to the shower so that your feet get whet while washing your hands. The tiles in the room lay lose, so you feel them move and here them scraping the floor. When you go out to breakfast the room gets really hot, even when you close the curtains. It’s a bit of a walk to walking street. The staff is very friendly and they can help you with everything. There’s a beach is front of the resort with really soft sand and a bit more secluded, that’s really nice.

          Beautiful location”

          The resort is in a beautiful location with very helpful and friendly staff. The shuttle ride into Walking Street is a nice touch as was the provision of snorkels and masks to borrow, beach towels, pick up and drop off to the pier etc. The rooms are ok, nothing special, but perfectly comfortable. It was expensive which is probably both a reflection of the time of year and Koh Lipe itself. The surrounding islands to Koh Lipe are fantastic.

          The location for lazy beach days is perfect. Free sun beds included with room cost. A beautiful snorkelling spot just off the beach out and around small island. Free kayaks and snorkelling gear available to use during stay. Breakfast very basic but adiquate. Manager/front of house very helpful and kind. We would definitely return to this hotel
