More on Ko Phi Phi

Arriving here in August 2014 we found the Paradise to be in the midst of a big transformation.

Travelfish says:

A large section along the beach was walled off and most of its long-standing bungalows were being rebuilt. The only bungalows open were the smaller ones along the back row, and these had all been renovated. Following the island-wide trend of bungalows making way for more hotel style accommodation, Paradise had just opened a two-storey building with 10 air-con rooms on our visit. Rooms here are modern looking, though rather sterile, and large, with beachside rooms fetching higher prices. Each room has white tiled floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, double bed, hot-water showers, TV, balcony and mini-fridge. The bungalows that were open all have air-con, twin or double beds and hot water showers, and have been given a decent upgrade with wood panelling and a fresh coat of paint. Until the construction is finished, however, expect plenty of hammering noise and dust, no chance of a sea view, and you’ll have to walk around the construction site to reach the beach. So definitely ask for a discount if booking into the bungalows. The restaurant was also closed for renovation, but was expected to be open for high season. High-season rates include breakfast. WiFi is free. Though many changes are underway here, we found the staff to still be the friendliest of all the places on Long Beach.
