Blue Tribes Garden Beach Resort

Blue Tribes has gradually watched the eastern side of Pattaya Beach fill in on either side, but things haven't changed much at the small resort itself.

Photo of Blue Tribes Garden Beach Resort A giant buffalo skull is still hung over the dark-wood reception and restaurant that fronts the beach. Behind that are the large wood bungalows, each a bit different from the next. Those closest to the beach stand two storeys tall and afford sea views from open-air lofts with cushions, grass mats and hammocks. Slightly further back amid the sandy grounds with some tropical foliage, the single-floor bungalows come with firm queen-size beds and single beds on hardwood floors, making them good options for families. Decorative touches include surreal portraits in bright colours, sea gipsy handicrafts and woven bamboo. Spacious bathrooms are equipped with hot water, flush toilets and a few potted plants. All the way in the back, the cheapest "garden" room was rather musty; we'd suggest going for a cheaper bamboo bungalow at one of the resorts down the beach if Blue Tribes' larger dark-wood bungalows are too expensive. The excellent Italian restaurant, coffee bar and beach cocktail bar were going strong, and a pet monkey is one of several quirky touches. All rooms are fan-cooled and sounds from the nearby bars can be at least faintly heard after dark.

In the early 1990s, whispers of an unspoilt island far out in Thailand's Andaman Sea began surfacing among backpackers. With dazzling white-sand beaches touched by crystal-clear water that sheltered vibrant marine life, Ko Lipe was everything it was cracked up to be.
