Koh Lipe: Serene Resort Review

 

Serene Resort is located smack in the middle of Koh Lipe, right on walking street. Walking Street is the main artery of the island,  filled with shops, mini marts, tour desks, souvenir stalls and restaurants. I thought this was the best place to stay in as I can walk to just about anywhere on the island in a matter of minutes.

For one, it is just a short 2 minute stroll away from sunrise beach and about 3-minute away from Pataya beach, two of the most gorgeous beaches on Lipe. Despite being so close to Walking Street, Serene is located on a quite nook so you would never be bothered by the hive of activity on Walking Street. The place is indeed, as its name suggests, serene, even during the busiest time of the day or night.

The resort offers a wide range of accommodations, from basic bamboo bungalows (the one that I stayed in) all the way to fully equipped air conditioned bungalows. The owner (a middle aged Chinese man) and his staff was very friendly and helpful during my stay there. I had a wonderful stay at Serene, and I would highly recommend the bamboo bungalows for those who are traveling on a budget and don’t mind a rustic lodging experience. Check out the photos of my stay there in the bamboo bungalows.

The first thing to mention is that the bamboo bungalows are a little small. Note the scale of the bungalow to the chair. It was perfectly adequate for me. Just thought that it should be mentioned to set the right expectations.

There is a little porch/patio area in front of the bungalow where you can hang your hammock and laze about.

Everything from the walls to the floor are made from bamboo! It comes with a double mattress, two pillows and a mosquito net.
