Gorgeous! Let’s break it down: Room - we stayed in the deluxe Balinese hut and loved it. Didn’t have the outdoor shower like the Pattaya Mali but huge and clean. If I’m being super picky the shower could do with a bit more power but it is a small hotel on a small island so it’s fine! Comfy beds and regular fresh towels provided. Pool - we usually don’t use the pool as we are beach bums but it was THE perfect temperature. Very refreshing and cooling in the hot sun, with lovely foliage around giving a tropical vibe. Beach - stunning Lipe beach. As with most beaches on Lipe you do get the long tail boats parked out the front, but definitely more quiet than Pattaya side. Tide goes right out and exposes a lot of coral so beware if exploring. Loved the complimentary paddle boards and snorkels! Food - really good. Good choice for breakfast and ate most lunches here. Recommend the Massaman curry! Overall a beautiful tropical paradise. We would recommend and want to stay at the other Mali too! One thing: bring mozzie repellant.. the island seemed to be teeming with them!…
We stayed at the Suite. Unfortunately, they didn't indicate well that the suites are located on the first floor, and we have to take the stairs. We wanted to have at least one room located ground floor for our parents, but the hotel said all were fully booked, although we could see some villas had never been occupied throughout our stay there. The room is spacious and nicely decorated. We love the huge balcony area. The pool was okay, but the poolside sunloungers looked old and tired. Need to be refurbished or replaced. The walkway around the pool was clean. Although the restaurant was closed at night, we loved sitting on the cozy sofa. It's pretty private. Not many people at the beach or around the hotel. They are possibly hanging around the walking street area.
What a brilliant find! This hadn’t been my first choice resort but thank goodness the others were booked. All of the villas are set around the most perfect pool, with lush foliage and stone benches to allow an underwater seat. The bungalows themselves are beautiful- high ceilings, massive bathrooms and all set around the pool (which may worry some, but all are set back and private). Our room was closest to the beach (and bar) but it’s not a loud bar and all closed by 8pm. Amazingly friendly staff and a lovely breakfast. Couldn’t have asked for more. The hotel is also set at one end of Sunrise Beach - ideal for being within walking distance of everything but also not too busy.
I stayed in Balinese Poolside Suite at Mali Sunrise. The room is spacious and well-decorated. However, they need to improve their cleanliness. The garden pool, shady walkway and breakfast are my favorite things here. The restaurant is also in a good location with sea view and delicious food.
We have traveled to Thailand over 20 times and many other similar type island resorts. We are >50, road warriors. It’s well-worth the travel to get here. Mali Resort is Ritz Carlton of Koh-Lipe. Clean, safe, plus 1st class service
This place is amazing! Small hotel with everything you need, calm and relaxing pool, beach and restaurant. Houses are very very nice with huge bathrooms. Garden is breathtaking with lots of different and beautiful palms. Swimming pool is big enough for all the guest. Restaurant is serving very good food! I had a great time and I am sure I’ll be back
I highly recommend this place. Nice staff with a good recommend guide about Lipe island. You also can snorkelling in front of resort with the fantastic coral reef and nemo. Clean and Warm water in swimming pool. Room is super comfort to relax. Good value for money of room price, We will come back again. :)
With this current terrible time affecting us all, it has been so refreshing to spend a few nights relaxing at this super resort. Located right on the beach and with a stunning free flow pool at it’s center, the Mail Sunrise cannot fail to impress. Friendly and attentive staff, very well appointed rooms with very comfortable beds to flop into, this resort is a great choice for families and couple alike. Highly recommended.
The resort has got a nice atmosphere with lots of trees and just right on the beach. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and well maintained (with lots of towels!) The only one con is the breakfast with few choices. Overall is great!
The resort located on the sunrise beach that is a very beautiful and peaceful place. The walking street is not far away, about 5 minutes walk you’ll find many kinds of foods. I stayed in a villa with garden view that is near the beach. If you prefer a pool, please choose suite room or villa with pool view which are distant from the beach. The room is large and comfortable, except for the bed that is too soft. I appreciated the 3 Thai staffs (2 gentlemen and a lady) at the beach front restaurant, they always pay attention to serve everyone and kindly inform about everything we asked, thank you so much. But not for the front desk ladies that didn’t do their best. One thing that I’d like to suggest is that the beach front bar should be opened late to the night (now open til 6pm). By the way, I and my family are very happy to be here for 3 nights. I’m sure to stay here again for my next trip to Koh Lipe. …
