Refreshing eco-friendly resort

What we say: 4.5 stars

Castaway delivers some of the most stylish, comfy and eco-friendly accommodation on Lipe. Most rooms are in two-storey wooden bungalows with large decks and hammocks to go with bathrooms down below, and a wooden staircase connecting floors. At the back of the property, a handful of two-bedroom houses are great for groups and families with grown children, though the open-sided staircases could be hazardous for toddlers. Rooms are outfitted with Hmong blankets draped over queen-size beds, fabric lanterns hung in the corners, chests with padlocks and ceiling fans to accompany the sea breeze that funnels through large windows. Bathrooms come with tasteful decor and rain showerheads, though it's cold water only. All rooms are spaced fairly far apart from one another on either side of the tiny Coco Cottage Resort, and the atmosphere is quiet at any time. Castaway also operates a dive centre and spa, daily yoga and a great restaurant adorned with Asian antiques, axe pillows, hammocks and large wooden tables spread over a series of platforms. Rates may seem pricey for fan and cold-water rooms, but Castaway's staunchly eco-friendly approach sets the standard for other resorts on Lipe. Rates bounce up and down frequently through high season, with rooms surprisingly costing less in early January than at any time in February. Reservations are essential outside of low season.
