Cafe Lipe and Resort

Best known for its fantastic restaurant perched over a central slice of Pattaya Beach, Cafe Lipe rents out a handful of bamboo bungalows with thatch roofs in a cool, shaded area behind the cafe.

The bungalows are simple but more spacious than most, with bamboo floors, foam beds on chunky bamboo platforms, mosquito nets, soft lanterns and attached porches with Thai axe pillows and grass mats. Along with considerable airflow, the fans and shade from flowering trees should keep you relatively cool even in the hot season. The attached cold-water bathrooms have bucket-flush toilets to go with tiny sinks and cold-water showers. The adjacent Swiss/Thai run cafe does great sandwiches and Thai food along with fresh coffee, several teas and fruit shakes. This is an entrancingly mellow spot that tends to pull travellers in for longer than expected, which is a good thing considering there's a three-night minimum stay. Given the laid-back attitude that pervades the place, we'd expect this to be negotiable depending on time of year and how many rooms are available. If Cafe Lipe is full, neighbouring Moonlight, Seaside and Green View are all solid alternatives.
