Forra Diving & Bamboo Resort
Address: Sunrise Beach, Ko Lipe
Tel: 089673 1121
email: forratravel_diving@hotmail.com
website: http://www.forradiving.com

A 25% discount on bungalows is available on the day or days that you go diving with us!

Forra Bamboo Resort was opened in 2006 and is comprised of 18 well-designed, spacious bungalows, built mainly from bamboo and natural materials by craftsmen from northern Thailand. The resort has been designed to take consideration of the natural environment and to leave as much space between bungalows as possible, to give maximum privacy. Every bungalow has a large terrace and sea view. Some bungalows have a mezzanine floor with an upper window (for a good view!)

All bungalows have one four-poster bamboo double bed with mosquito net and some have the option of a second single or double bed on the mezzanine floor. Each bungalow has a fan, although between the months of November and March you will probably not find a fan necessary due to the nightly northeast wind, which blows away most mosquitoes and makes this side of the island cool and pleasant for sleeping.

The bathrooms have been designed to be partially open air, so that you can shower in privacy under the palm trees and stars. The advantage is that the bathrooms are fresh, light and perfect for tropical living.

There are five low rise bungalows directly on the beach, without mezzanine floor, which can be rented from 800b a night. There are thirteen raised bungalows on stilts, all with sea view, and some with a mezzanine floor, which can sleep up to four or a family of five and which can be rented from 700b per night, depending on the size of the bungalow and the number of people. A 25% discount on bungalows is available on the days that you go diving with us!

There is also a restaurant and bar at the resort, which serves western breakfast, coffee, shakes, drinks, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is not included in the nightly bungalow rate as we prefer to let guests be free to choose where they eat.

Visa and Mastercard accepted, but with a 5% banking fee. Credit card transactions must be completed at least one day before departure. Please note that travelers cheques cannot be changed and there is no ATM on Koh Lipe (the nearest is on the mainland at Langu, 20 mins from Pak Bara).

Room rates
Beach bungalow with fan from 800B
Bungalow on stilts for 2 people from 600B
Bungalow on stilts with mezzanine for 3 people from 700B
Family bungalow on stilts with mezzanine for 4 people or family of 5 from 900B
A 25% discount on bungalows is available on the day or days that you go diving with us!
