Great location and service”

Location, swimming pools, huge bathrooms

I had booked another hotel which proved unsatisfactory so moved to the Akira for the remainder of my stay on Koh Lipe. It is a new place and has a few small teething problems to be resolved but has all the potential to be perhaps the best place on Lipe Staff were warm and friendly and helpful, rooms (mine was a Silver Suite on second floor overlooking a huge 60 metre swimming pool) were spacious and well furnished - although the addition of a Desk light (I bought one) would make the room so much better for when guests need to sit at the desk for work or emails etc. There are pretty pathways leading guests from the spacious Reception / Dining area to cabins and the two two-storey guest room wings. However in wet weather the polished concrete becomes dangerously slippery. The swimming pools are amazing, and having a deck chair right on the beach was also excellent. I would certainly return to the Akira Lipe Resort

Great location ”

AKIRA Lipe Resort is a nice hotel at Koh Lipe. The Staff is friendly and very helpful. Location is perfect, the hotel have a nice pool area with a great view over Pattaya beach, that connects the pool area and the beach in a very nice way. ARIKA Lipe offer Happy hour every day between 4-7, with great drinks. DJ playing. Input - boring to hear same club music every day... If there is something AKIRA Lipe should improve I would say - invest in some real coffee for the breakfast. During our stay they only have a terrible nescafe -really bad taste! Also the breakfast station for fresh omelet, pancakes could be better. The staff is not really real chiefs. A better overal breakfast could be to wish and that would have made our stay complete.

Exceptional”

Akira Lipe was a fabulous hotel, within easy walking distance to the ferry stop, main street, restaurants, and with fairly good snorkelling right in front. I chose a first floor room facing the pool, and it was very clean, spacious, with a large, modern bathroom with tub, and a choice of pools to swim in -- for the less confident swimmers in a group. The staff all spoke English and were helpful. The complimentary breakfast buffet offered a generous selection of local and eastern dishes, with pancakes, eggs and soup noodles prepared fresh. There's complimentary drinking water provided daily as well as a kettle and hair dryer in the room. Although it is among the more expensive of hotels on Koh Lipe, it is worth every cent and I'd definitely return to stay at Akira Lipe;. The only improvement I can think of is if the hotel could please work with the island authority to clean up the small river that runs just next to the hotel into the sea, as the water can occasionally smell foul.

Clean, very comfortable, calm and relaxed, good location ”

Been in Koh Lipe for many days, stayed in Akira in the Superior pool access room for 5days 4nights. The rest of the 4days 3nights in another hotel (Cabxxa Lixx Beaxx Resoxx). I was in heaven during the stay in Akira and fell into hell during the stay in Cxxana. Pros- very clean n comfortable hotel. So excited to have a room sticked to a pool, which i can jump into it right after opening the balcony door. The buffet breakfast was also very good, had a big variety of food and the food overall tastes good too. Located just 3 mins away from the walking street. Provided mosquito repellent incense, this was so considerate. The staffs were very nice and speaks good english. Cons- really a lot of mosquitos n flyes, but this is Koh Lipe's problem, not properly Akira's problem. The house keeping hasn't got a standard, sometimes didnt reput toothpaste, sometimes the tissue papers, and sometimes gave out too mamy towels. Need improve in the hair conditioner, should provide a comb.

Big problems. ”

So we are travelling through Asia. Philippines. Vietnam Malaysia Thailand. We know we love Thailand having been here many times before. We decided to route through Langkawi then Koh Lipe on route to Koh Lanta. We booked into this hotel for two nights unsure on what the island had to offer. The ferry from langkawai was pretty grim as the boat had poor windows and no outside seating but soon over. Customs and immigration was an island experience! Once done into hotel. Hotel is clean friendly and a prime location on Pattaya beach. Yes the beach is busy but not in a crowded way but nice bars hotels boats etc. Pool overlooks the bay. Hotel had all you need from a hotel and a short walk to walking street. Plenty of restaurants local food. Western food and usual shops and massages. Think mini phi phi. But from the side opposite the ferry’s and no McDonald’s. !! We walked around the island and decided we had the best location and hotel. So the big problem ,,,,,,,,,, We are still here ! We want to explore other islands before Koh Lanta. But keep deciding why move when everything we love is here. Currently at 7 nights and still no plans to go. Reception have got used to the request. Another two days please !

Lovely Stay”

AKIRA LIPE is a nice hotel in Koh Lipe, located on Pattaya beach. Lovely pool area, nice rooms. Breakfast ok, their restaurant is the only thing they need to work on. Doesn't matter if its Thai food or western food... this is an area for improvement. The staff are all very friendly and service minded. The beach outside the hotel start to be very busy, more and more boats - compared to previous year its more busy and noisy. But still overall a great hotel, we had a great stay!

Best hotel on Koh Lipe ”

Location, pool & Pool Bar, friendly staff!!

We extended our stay another night because we didn't want to leave. Koh Lipe is a MUST see island, and if you go there this is a must stay hotel. We met a couple who switched hotels after their first night, then they moved to Akira Lipe and were also very pleased with the accommodations. If you book a room, get a private villa, it's so worth it. Get 101 if you can, is the prime spot!

Christmas 2018 At Akira Resort”

Very clean accommodation and facilities, excellent and friendly staff particularly the Customer Service ladies and Restaurant Manager who would go that little bit extra to ensure guests were satisfied and happy. Pattaya Beach location is OK but somewhat spoilt by the excessive longtail boat activity and much better beaches on Koh Lipe to explore and fully relax on. Like many hotels there are limited number of front row sunbeds overlooking the beach which are subject to early morning "reservation" by inconsiderate guests and then not used for several hours, this is something the hotel management need to address to ensure all guests are treated equally

Fantastic Stay, Some Minor Complaints”

We had a great stay at this resort. I had booked a discounted rate under the impression that we might have a lower quality room but was pleasantly surprised that our promotion was for a villa room which was great. The price was reasonable due to the promotion although the rack rate price seemed expensive but the room was excellent. A good size and only a short walk from the pool/beach. The pool area was beautiful as was the beachfront my only complaint was that the music at the pool was awful and way too loud. The sound of the sea would be much nicer and more fitting with the atmosphere. The food was good value for Koh Lipe, which is expensive. It was quite nice and the breakfast was good. Staff were all friendly though the management was not five star. At times we had to walk to ask for service but apart from this I could not fault them. I would definitely stay here again but please turn down the terrible music.

The lovely Akira”

Great hotel, location, and staff, can't ask for much more. I had a Superior Pool Access room and it was great. Pool was cooler and less used than the larger public pool on the beach. Large room with a large well appointed bathroom. Bed was enormous and very comfy. Great staff across the resort from front desk, house keeping, and food & beverage, every person I came into contact with was smiling and helpful. Great location with a short 4 min stroll to Walking Street which has some very good local restaurants and bars. I would stay here again on my next visit to Koh Lipe This resort would be suitable for all types of travelers, including couples and families, both young and old

Nice hotel but staff needs more enthusiasm ”

New, clean, nice rooms, good location, great beach

We were looking forward to trying Akira after seeing all the photos on line and knowing it was brand new. We were staying at idyllic concept which we absolutely loved before moving over to Akira and we noticed a big difference. Pros- Akira is new, beautiful rooms, beautiful pool, the beach is beautiful, clear water, less corals to step on so easy to swim in compared to idyllic which had quite a bit of corals which made walking in the water a bit tricky. Cons- although we did expect a new hotel to have hiccups with staffing in the beginning we couldn't help but compared the huge difference between idyllic and Akira. Idyllic staff were amazing, attentive, proactive, warm and friendly making you feel welcome and like family. Akira staff were lacking energy and enthusiasm and overall just weren't as warm and friendly. I asked for an extra blanket and pillow. The blanket came without a cover. We accidentally broke a small cereal bowl at lunch and the staff half heartedly clean up and left. I had to clean up the rest of the broken porcelain pieces and spilt sauce on the floor worried that kids will cut their feet on the broken chips. What we were even more surprise to find was a bill for 250baht for the small broken bowl added to our bill upon check out. We've never heard of any hotels or restaurants in Asia esp 4-5star hotels charging for an accident lu broken tableware. In terms of location it's convenient and has a great beach but be aware it's next to immigration where motor boats are arriving in and out during the day whIch can be a little noisy. It didn't bother us much but if you prefer absolute peace, pls keep this in mind. Overall it is a very nice hotel and I'm sure with time the staff and service will improve.

Amazing resort with superb location ”

My 4D3N stay in Akira Lipe was fantastic. I am travelling with a 5months old baby and a 4years old kid. Their Staffs are very helpful, polite and efficient. Their breakfast are so delicious and varies in different style--Thai, western, Chinese. I will definitely choose this resort again for my next trip as it is so close to immigration and walking street.

Truely amazing!”

The location was rigth on the beach. The swimingpool was heaven and the staff was so helpfull and kind

We came to Koh Lipe allready booking an other hotell, but it was not so good. So we changed to Akira and that was the best desision ever. The resort is everything you can dream of. The hotel is expensive, but it will make your holiday so much better

Great Service”

Me and my wife arrived September 5th 2018 for a few days of rest and snorkeling. The weather forecast was called for 70% rain showers every day. Not the case at all.we couldn’t ask for a better weather. From the moment we got off the boat to Koh Lipe to when we left, the staff was amazing. ***** to the bellboys , front desk,housekeeping and waiter and waitress. You all were just super. Akira should be very appreciative for the way you made us feel, and took care of all of our needs. Thank you for booking our snorkeling trip. The grounds , pools and eating ares were spotless. 😃

Most friendly Hotel Staff on the Island”

Following the recommendation from the operator of mylipe.com we have booked the Akira for the first time whilst staying @Koh Lipe in January 2019. This Hotel is definitely one of the best on the whole island and outstanding in regards to friendliness/professionality of Hotel staff and quality of services. The breakfast buffet is excellent and offers a wide selection of Asian and European food, also the Menu of the Restaurant has a delightful variation of food and beverages at reasonable prices. Very cool and a unique feature is the Happy Hour hosted by excellent DJs during 4-7pm.
