Gecko’s fan-cooled bungalows dot a forested hilltop property at the end of a side lane just off central Walking Street and within a 10-minute stroll of either of the two main beaches.

With white paint on woven bamboo walls and double beds with mosquito nets placed on bamboo frames, the small standard bungalows come with cold-water bathrooms and porches with tables and floor cushions. Larger bungalows with thatch roofs and bamboo ceilings are more inviting, mainly thanks to better porches and partially open-air bathrooms with modern sinks and hot-water showers. Both appeared clean and comfier than your average bungalow.

No trees were cut down to create the resort, which preserves a patch of the forest that blanketed most of Lipe a decade ago. On different visits we’ve encountered a young Thai woman and a dreadlocked European woman, and both were welcoming. Soft lanterns and hammocks add some ambiance and a small pavilion has some tables for using the free WiFi.

It’s a good idea to poke around on the booking sites before paying the standard rates through Gecko’s website. Neighbouring Gipsy 2 is also a solid choice for an affordable inland bungalow.
