Off beach family value
Set towards the eastern end of Lipah, Double One Villas II offers decent flashpacker rooms with a small pool in an off-the-beach location.
The resort may not look like much from the street, but the rooms are quite smart and come with a simply fitted out kitchenette, which may appeal to travelling families (as will the small pool). The air-con rooms are very generously sized, with the quietest ones towards the rear of the resort. There is no restaurant on site, but you’re a short walk from nearby warungs and other resorts with restaurants. Lipah beach is about a five-minute walk away. Facilities include hot water bathrooms, air-con and WiFi throughout. This place isn’t overloaded with character, but it is functional and the staff friendly. If you’re looking at a longer stay be sure to ask after a discount, but even without a discount the rates are very reasonable for the standard. They have a second, more upmarket, property on the road between Lipah and Bunutan, next to Wawa Wewe II.
