This place only has 5 bungalows spread across the hillside above the beach. Our bungalow was lovely with a separate living space and big bathroom. The breakfast is good with eggs cooked fresh to order and a lavazza coffee machine. The lady who runs the restaurant is also great at appearing on the beach at lunchtime to see if you want food or drink.

The resort offers a free taxi service until 9pm so it's really easy to head into Walking Street every evening for dinner and shopping whenever you like. They even give you a mobile phone so you can call for a pick up.

The lady on reception is super helpful but you will be left alone if that's what you prefer. We had a problem with the electricity in our room which tripped about 4 or 5 times in a 4 night stay. It was always dealt with quickly and we didn't make a big deal about it although it was slightly annoying. When I went to check out and pay our bill I discovered they had waived all our charges (apart from the room which had been pre-paid) as an apology for the inconvenience. This was a fairly hefty amount as we had lunches, massages and quite a few beers. Truly superb service.

I think ... It's wonderful. We feel relax, private, and rest when i arrive here. We live in beachfront room. We can see beach all day. We paddle kayak and snorkeling on the private beach. It's fantastic. We love koh lipe.

Product and service here are definitely one of the best on the island. The resort is a bit remotely located along sunset beach which is nice and quiet and the hotel offers a complimentary pick up and drop of service for wherever you would like to go. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and with really great views. We also loved the hospitality and all staff members where extremely helpful at all times. If you want to have a luxury stay come here, if you prefer a busier location and the best beaches, perhaps stay on sunrise beach.

We choose Sawan resort because on the website states compromise of just 5 luxury wooden villas. When we enter Koh Lipe on Pattaya Beach Mr. Chai is waiting for us with cold water and cleaning hand and face towels. Upon entering Sawan Resort with Thai mixture of Balinese design and spectacular landscapes we really feel to have found that hidden gem! Ms. Aree was ever present to assist us together with Ms. Eve. The lagoon with turquoise water overlooking from our Thai Grand Villa made us felt deeply relaxing, the villa very being spacious with very comfortable bedding and bathroom with bathtub. Overall experience very friendly, diligent and helpful staff. Staying at Sawan resort has been an excellent choice and provided the true feeling like 'Home away from Home'. We are already looking forward to come back next year!

Small side note: Breakfast could be more choice but they promised me they are working on resolving this issue and that upgrade will commence before end of this month.

Location unreal best spot on island, private but sound location. A fantastic private beach with some of the best water we have ever swum in. Perfect for snorkling and relaxing. Only thing lacking was a bar which i think they are working on now!!
