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.
