I stayed at and dived with Forra on Sunrise beach for a week at the end of Dec '11; it was a fantastic experience with lovely and helpful staff, great DMs and an absolutely gorgeous compound, all contributing to a fun yet cozy atmosphere. The descriptions of the compound in the reviews below are absolutely spot-on - the bungalows are...

Still almost preserved from 10-storeys concrete buildings and koh phiphi style shops and tourists, Koh Lipe is a lovely island where you can do everything bare foot. Sunrise beach is 10min walk from Pattaya beach, where you'll arrive by boat. Pattaya is the happening beach, with lots of bars along the white sandy and crystal clear water. If you want...

Stayed 3 nights in May 2010, when it was the low season. The bungalows are simple and clean, except for some insects crawling on the walls (but the insects could be due to the bamboo used to make the whole bungalow). The toilet is modern and is half-roofed, very spacious for a shower. There was no room service, but we...

We stayed on Lipe for several days at Forra Bamboo and really enjoyed our stay. We found the bungalow to be lovely, they really are HUGE compared to most bamboo bungalows we have stayed in Thailand. The ceilings are so high and there is tons of natural light, our hut even had a little loft area. The porch is also...

Ko Lipe is a very beautiful island where I stayed a few weeks for diving. It' situated onthe south west coast of the andaman sea, next to the border of Malaysia. Despite the ever growing development on the island, the place still gives a lot of beautiful areas to walk around, and the diving is very nice. The place I...

I know Koh Lipe since many years. The island has changed a lot. But Forra Bamboo gives you the opportunity to spend nice holidays, in a tremendously beautiful environment, just in front of the sea in the eastern part of the island. The bamboo bungalows are simple but clean, built in the chaole local style. The food is tasty but...

My husband and I stayed in Forra Bamboo Resort for 5 nights in one of the 2nd row beach bungalows. We liked the location, the beach there is very quiet and the bamboo huts are nicely surrounded by greenery and quite private. The huts are OK-ish, basic but not bad but nothing special also. I didn't like the fact that...
