We had an awesome stay at the Forra diving & bamboo Bungalows. The place is the oldest diving center on the island and is run by a fantastic french family and its friends. We stayed 10 days there, sleeping in the cutest bamboo huts, hanging out at the beach restaurant to eat the delicious homemade food, diving and snorkelling in...

Really lovely, basic huts. Perfect for simple holiday accommodation. I loved the bare basic of it all so suited us perfectly. Set a little back from the beach so missed a little on the sea breeze side of things and also there were a lot of mosquitos, they have nets on the beds for nights which was a real life...

We did their DSD program for non licenced divers. So two dives in one day. First our instructor Su was very nice, kind and patient and full of information on the sea life we were about to visit and answering a rain of questions we had in stock for her. Their boat and equipment were also in good condition and...

place beautiful, quiet, just a pity that the locals developed a liking for motorbikes, you can not come to the beach to you every two steps avoiding any motorcycle did not, instead spends its charm for input on Lipe are paid per person 250BTH Swimming on Lipe is still amazing, but the food and drink is already very expensive

Forra Diving Sunrise Beach is in a new location behind the beach where they have the bar and restaurant. The bamboo's bungalows are quiet, with hot water. A restaurant is in the middle of the place. The other one, on the beach is really peaceful and you can spend easily 3 hours just... doing nothing and enjoy!

Away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Street, these simple little cabanas/ beach huts provide the perfect beach side escape. The basic yet tasteful huts are located metres away from sunrise beach and a short walk away from the main walking street.

We stayed 5 nights in family bungalows. Accommodation was excellent, clean bungalows, comfortable beds and hot water. Staff was very kind and helpful. Disadvantages: 1. There are just few trees so bungalows are almost under the sun. The hot weather in May disturbed us 2.Location: There is a village behind the bungalows. Roosters, children, even some adults who fix something...

Many thanks to Antoinne and his crew for looking after us. Five star service, flexible and great value. He even organised a last minute liveaboard for us. The food was fantastic in resort and on the liveaboard. Antoinne has a fantastic knowledge of the local dive sites and a welcoming laid back attitude. Highly reccommended.
