Bila Beach Bungalows

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Bila Beach is about a five-minute stroll to the west past Sunset beach, and a good 20-minute walk from Walking Street.

It's no longer the most most far-flung of Lipe's resorts, but the small private beach is as quiet and laid back as ever. Placed over a steep hillside leading down to the beach, the rustic bamboo-and-thatch bungalows are tangled into the forest like bird's nests. Inside they're simple but spacious, with polished concrete or bamboo floors, firm beds with mosquito nets on four-poster bamboo frames, large bamboo terraces with hammocks and partially open-air cold-water bathrooms. Kayaks, snorkels, more hammocks, loungers and tables are spread over the small beach, and the shack of a bar/restaurant does home-cooked Thai to go with sandwiches, smoothies and cocktails. The dreadlocked Thai owners trade off between chef and bartender when not lounging in their hammocks. The place has a mellow, reggae-inspired atmosphere; look elsewhere if you're the type who expects a snappy staff always ready and waiting to fill your requests. Also keep in mind that Bila Beach is secluded and intimate, meaning you'll be in close contact with the same guests every day (so hopefully you get on with them). Just up the road, Spanish-managed Pitiusas Resort has a similar set up on its own tiny beach, though they charge quite a bit more for fan-cooled wood bungalows that aren't all that much better than Bila's.
