Quiet, clean, comfortable”

Friendly staff, dive shop, good food

We enjoyed our time at the resort. There are only two bungalows. Ours has a king bed and a sitting area, complete with a DVD player. Very homey feeling. Staff are very friendly and attentive to all needs. We went diving every day, and ate at the restaurant many times. Susnset beach is quiet and clean, in no small part due to the attentiveness of Sabye Sports and Smuggler's Hideaway. Those are the same businesses and most people on the island are familiar with Sabye, but don't know Smuggler's.

So peaceful you have the whole beach to yourself in the morning and evening.”

So peaceful you have the whole beach to yourself in the morning and evening. Unique room and set up. Very nice way to be alone on Koh Lipe. Very few facilities right nearby, but a 10 minute walk away gets you in to town. The manager offered to drive me for free whenever I wanted as well. The beach get a nice sunset crowd for those who might get lonely.

Hidden Treasure”

Friendly Staff. Excellent food, comfortable room

We enjoyed our stay so much we added onto our plans and booked 7 nights in all! The location is excellent, right on Sunset Beach with a restaurant to watch the sunset/ The resort is very quiet for an extremely pleasant stay. The staff are very friendly and Poom at the restaurant treated us very well. Sa and the kitchen staff were great preparing hot delicious food quickly in a very clean and efficiently run kitchen. The bungalows are very large and well appointed with king beds, TV/DVD, large bathroom, sitting areas in and out, breezy and quiet. The dive staff are very accommodating and have all the gear required including kayaks, boards, dive and snorkel and more. It takes about 10- 15 minutes to walk to the other beaches or walking street. We would highly staying if you seek a quiet sanctuary on one of the nicest beaches in the area.

Excellent location but DIY”

Location,location, location

Sunset beach is definitely the best and quietest beach to stay on Koh Lipe. However, Smuggler's Hideaway Resort and its Flour Power Cafe and bar make extravagant claims about how good they are... Many of them are just not true. There was a complete lack of service, the room was only cleaned once during a 5 night stay and this was only after we requested. One of the fans did not work properly and this made the room uncomfortably hot during the late afternoon and evening. No effort was made on the part of the manager to ensure that we had a comfortable stay - no feedback was requested when we checked out. This place has a great deal of potential but the management appears to be non-existent. It is an excellent location but beware the pictures and claims that are made about Smugler's Hideaway in their advertising. If you are into a very laid-back do-it-yourself accommodation then this may be the place for you. Back

If you want to get away from it all.”

Secluded. Lovely beach. Great food.

Very pleasant. Small family run business, only two bungalows. Nothing else on the bay so you have the beach almost to yourself for the majority of the time. Lovely small rocky inlets when tide is out. Sunset viewers arrived from 5:00pm, mostly gone by 7:00pm. The food is expensive by comparison to the main beaches, but is far better quality. Home cooked, fresh, authentic, the curries ( all of them ) are fabulous. Staff very pleasant and helpful. You do need to ask for things and they tend to wait rather than automatically offer, but always prompt and obliging. Surprisingly good diving. If you want peace and quiet in a small out of the way place with an authentic Thai feel ( not at all touristy ) look no further.

Remote area with chaos in the backyard ”

Old room, chaos in the backyard, silent

First of all, the sunset beach has lots of construction and there are lots of chaos in the backyard of this resort. Secondly, the room is big and sort of modern comparing to other remote resort. However, it is kind of old and has some strange smell around, thirdly, there are lots of Mosquitos which make u feel uncomfortable. You can go snorkel in sunset beach, but there are not so many colorful corals, overall, I think this resort is overrated, it is not worth of the price. Anyway, To book in agoda is kind of tricky, as you will end up paying 50% more than you just walk in the resort. At least that what I have experienced in kph lipe. The food in this resort is nice but quite expensive comparing to other part of the island. It is silent at night, but you can hear some disco kind of music during the day, it is quite annoying. Anyway, pls be careful, don't book on line, just walk in, there are so many good resort around. As I am not the only one who experienced such unfair price for exactly the same room, paid much more than people just walk in.

My kind of place”

The staff, the value, the location

Smugglers will never be a 5-star - it doesn't want to be and fills its role as a dive/snorkel resort just fine. The staff were there when you needed them, but not to the point of annoyance or disregard. The rest of this small island is layered with tourists and 24-hour construction of shoddy new places for them to stay, but at Smugglers you get more a feel that you are one of only a few people on the island. The rooms were pleasant and comfortable and had all the conveniences of home - even extra electrical outlets for your gadgets and a safe for valuables. They arranged our seamless land and water transport to and from the island and were ready for us by name when we arrived. A solid 3-star plus that will be appreciated by the experienced traveler.

Ok beach place but missing a few essentials”

Close to beach, friendly staff, clean large room

Nice enough place to stay with beautiful Thai designed huts, friendly staff, close access to beach and walkable to local restaurants / shops (Koh Lipe being very small). However it's an expensive place missing a few key essentials - WIFI could not be access in room at all and at times cannot connect in public WIFI, in room safe could not be used and staff had no idea how to fix it. Generally overpriced, but that's the nature of Koh Lipe which has turned into an overpriced tourist trap in the last few years. Will be trying out other accommodations in the island if return next time.

Nice bungalows, close to beach. ”

Pros - Bungalows are very spacious and right on sunset beach. Provided drinking water was nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Cons - Having to turn the power off to the entire bungalow every time I went out for the day, rendered the fridge a bit useless as contents would be warm by the time I returned. I stayed for 6 nights and my room was never serviced. Waste bins were never emptied. Room was never cleaned. No new bath towels. That was disappointing.

Relax with nature”

Comfortable room, helpful owner, water sports centre

The room is big, clean, comfortable and not too hot (even is only with fan in the room). As the room is made of bamboo,the room is not sound-proof as we can hear the workers were talking and preparing the stuff in the kitchen early in the morning, which is just next to our room. As the owner was away on the day we checked in, the staff was asking us to settle the payment (tax) when we have already made full payment via agoda.com. When we asked for extra toilet paper and bottled drinking water, the staff was unsure and told us we got to wait for the owner to come back as the owner was not around that time.
