Andaman’s exceptional stretch of beachfront makes it worth considering, even if the resort itself lacks the elegance of places like Castaway and Ten Moons.

The large resort has been here for about as long as tourists have been coming to Lipe and its 17 different room types are like fossils hinting at different stages in the island’s development.

A vast curve of sand draped in casuarina trees is where you’ll find the extremely worn woven bamboo bungalows and longhouse family rooms with peeling linoleum, firm beds with mosquito nets, basic cold-water bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets and porches, some with direct sea views. These rooms are not memorable, but the location makes them enticing.

From there designers moved into the concrete realm by adding row after row of characterless air-con rooms, some in long attached structures and others freestanding. Unless shelling out for one of the pricey sea-view villas or a cheaper “viewpoint room” built on a hill at the rear, you can expect a view of nothing but the buildings in front. Available with fan or air-con to go with extras like fridge and TV for more cash, concrete rooms come with tile floors, glass windows and furnished porches, though only top-end digs bag you a hammock. Painted white, ice blue or two shades of beige, some of these are uglier than others. Some scuffs and mustiness should be expected in older rooms.

A huge and not-so-attractive restaurant overlooks the sand, though we couldn’t see spending much time there when that dazzling beachfront is equipped with dozens of wooden loungers set under the shade of umbrella trees or thatch umbrellas. With a great outlook to Ko Adang, this beachfront is the resort’s saving grace; do come check it out even if staying elsewhere.
