Stayed here for 2 fabulous weeks in February 2020. The location is perfect and everything is in walking distance, although you might want a torch.

We had a Garden Bungalow, which was detached and just what we wanted (some of the rooms nearer the beach were joined). The room was spacious with just enough storage to unpack all our clothes (wardrobe and unit). The room was a good size with a large comfortable bed, there was a fridge, room safe, tv, tea, coffee, kettle, dressing table with a mirror, hair dryer & trash hero water bottles that you could fill up at reception (great idea). The bathroom had a nice electric shower and toiletries, it was also a good size. Outside are 2 chairs and a table where you could relax and enjoy the garden.

Breakfast was served in the beach front restaurant, with amazing views. There was a good selection of fruit including a fruit salad, yoghurt, toast, waffles, french toast, pancakes, cereal, juices, smoothies (which were delicious), tea, coffee, hot chocolate and hot food. Eggs and bacon are cooked to order, the friendly staff will come and see what you’d like. The restaurant is also open for lunch, with good food and prices.

The beach front has some comfortable sunbeds and we managed to get one most days. If the beds are full, beach mats are provided at reception so you can take them onto the beach itself. The beach towels are also at reception, they are unusual but lightweight and do the job. We walked up to Bulow beach one day, there is an inlet with sea as calm as a millpond.

They offer trips from the reception and we wanted to do a snorkelling trip as they looked good but my wife was recovering from a broken wrist and we didn’t think it was sensible to risk it. Next time! A lovely little resort on Paradise Island, one we won’t forget in a hurry. Thank you.

Situated on the nicest part of the island, great little set up with all the necessary amenities as well as some few extras. Breakfast and a clean room every day, filtered water, friendly service and great advice re local trips and eco-tourism activities.
Hammocks aplenty and very nicely located to walk into the busier parts or to chill along sunrise beach and surrounding areas. Would recommend

We stayed there for 5 nights and the place, the environment, the view and most importantly the owner and his staff absolutely amazed us.
The place is run by a French man and his wife who both are very friendly and helpful. Bus also their crew was nice. Almost all of them speak English, therefore, no language barrier at all. They picked us up by motorcycle at the pier. Also provided us some boat trips for a reasonable price. Plus, we got our room upgraded for the last 2 nights for free. (stunning sea view, right on the beach, lucky us)
Location is perfect; 7/11 and local restaurants nearby. In addition, the walking street is also within walking distance, no need to take a motorcycle taxi at all.
10/10 overall, very satisfied with the place, highly recommended. Thanks for everything, and all the best to you guys! Keep up the good job!

We stayed here for 10 nights in a deluxe garden bungalow. The bungalow was large, huge bed, well equipped with all facilities you need and clean. The bathroom is basic but completely adequate.
The resort is well maintained and well looked after. No rubbish and eco conscious with water top ups.
The food at the resort was nice and reasonably priced. Breakfast had a good choice of fruit, yogurt, eggs any way you wanted, a rice or noodle dish. Smoothie also very nice.
Massage at the beach front really good and priced competitively.
Kayaks to hire and snorkelling equipment to use. The island at the front of resort nice to visit. At some time of the day the boats were noisy but this is the same for the whole island.
Worth getting up for the sun rise it’s stunning. Always sun beds or hammocks. Really close to walking street but no noise.
Would return in a heart beat 😍

A pretty rocky start to this stay as we arrived after 6pm to a resort that was dark and looked closed up. I had emailed ahead to say we would be late (boat from Koh Lanta took far longer than estimated) but got no reply. I went next door to the Salisa resort and they were thankfully able to contact the Wapi resort host for us who then found us and showed us to our room. Other than this issue, the host was really friendly, smiley and helpful. She sorted a lift for us to the port at the end of our stay and gave us advice on boats and tours. Room and bed were comfortable, bathroom was clean and good, air conditioning worked well and seating area outside was nice. Location was good, easy walk to the walking street and next door to Adang Sea Divers if you want to dive or do a snorkel tour with them. Sun beds and hammocks are available to relax in and they offer good quality snorkels, life vests and kayaks that guests can borrow.

Buffet breakfast options and coffees weren’t that great but they will cook eggs and bacon for you which was great. Wifi not good enough in rooms and we had a strong connection. Lots of long boats parked in the sea outside the resort so not that tranquil and doesn’t feel like the best spot to swim in. We got massages and the location of the massage was great and listening to the waves was really nice. There was confusion over when our massage was, we originally got told by the Masseuse that we were booked for 12pm but then when we turned up for 12 there were other people getting a massage. We waited for 30 minutes before asking the resort host what was happening and they told us we were now at 1pm. Not a huge problem but after we waited my massage was brutal and I tried to indicate to her that it was hurting my spine but she didn’t change anything. My spine and neck were very sore. My partner didn’t have the same experience so I guess it depends on who you get?

We have received a very warm welcome upon arrival. The staff were waiting us at the pier and took us to the resort by a sidecar motorcycle. We really love their welcome drink (roselle juice). We have booked Deluxe Tropical Bungalow (C7) and Deluxe Bungalow (C4). It's very nice, private and clean. Only 3 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to walking street. A buffet breakfast, hair dryer, sandals, umbrella, beach blanket, woven bag, mosquito repellents, kayak and etc. are provided. Really appreciated.

A great little place to stay. Its not fancy but its clean, tidy and has all that you need for a beach holiday on Ko Lipe.
Bathrooms are large with shower at one end and the toilet at the other with the hand basin in the middle, important if you like a bathroom with a dry floor.
Probably its best asset is its little café. Simple but good food, great coffee and you can sit there all day if you wish.
Beware, they only offer double beds in some rooms.

Wapi Resort is not flash but it is lovely. Our room was a Bungalow Second Room with Sea View. The bedroom was small but had all the necessities for a beach side holiday - a comfortable bed, a fridge (which we didn't use), a wardrobe and enough space for luggage to be stored out of the way. The bathroom was a good size and clean. Our little verandah had a table and 2 chairs, and was well used.
Ko Lipe is a low key sort of place and Wapi Resort suits that vibe. The sandy beach and turquoise water is right there in front of you; it has a great café/restaurant serving simple but good food (both Thai and western) - the breakfasts are good, so is the coffee and their Bacon sandwiches hard to resist; Walking St and its restaurants only 5 minutes walk away; very friendly owners and staff.
Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 wonderful nights in a garden bungalow. The beach is only metres away. The staff service was excellent and we had a decent breakfast. I like the small but important details such as refillable water bottles, mosquito spray, beach towels and laundry rack. The sunrise beach is the best in Koh Lipe, so you can't go wrong here.

We stayed for over a while in room A3, its a beachfront bungalow with everything we needed….sea view, AC, bar fridge, warm shower water, desk for remote working. No wifi in the bungalows (restaurant only) but 4G service was very good. Great location. Staff are all very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was tasty, bacon is available. Would definitely stay again.

We have just come back from staying in a deluxe garden view bungalow, we were in the one furthest away from the beach and this was only approx 75 meters away from the beach. It's a small resort all of the bungalow are a stones throw from the beach just not with sea views.

There are boats but most tend to go out during the day with only a few left. There are lots of boats moving around on all parts of the island. When the tide is out it's difficult to swim as it is shallow for some distance before it hits the reef. The boats do come in and out but where careful and looking out for people. There are lots of places to eat close by.

Answer from cristian_bkk
Transacqua, Italy6 contributions
You can call them or just go to the ""Thaibeachtraveler"" shop on the walking street, this shop is only few meter from the begin of the road on the left side, they will call the Wapi reception and arrange a pick up for you. If you don't have a booking just use a motorbike taxi or walk for about 10 minutes.
