French-driven, familiar-feeling bamboo bungalows. The bungalows are in very good state and quite big. Please be aware that Forra has two different ressorts - one at the main beach and the other one on the east coast. The one in the east coast is directly located next to native people's place (which is a bit noisy). The ressort on east...

I would highly recommend Forra Dive. We stayed in their bamboo huts on Sunrise beach. The huts are brand new and the accommodation has a really cool vibe to it. The staff are brilliant and we had a lot of fund with Marcus, Jose and crew on the dive boat for the day. I would highly recommend them for both...

I cannot rate this place highly enough for those on a budget. The shacks were great and beds had fly nets, for the price it was amazing... Location was away from the crows and the island is walkable so it adds something more. Antoine was relaxed and welcoming, his team were superb and I felt so warmly welcomed and supported....

I've got to say I found the stay amazing, I love the idea of the bamboo bungalow. Especially for my sister and I who are still in our teens. It was very adventurous. Being right on the beach we had tons of fun running around the beach. Plus the staff at reception were very friendly.

Love the food, love the place...it is truly simple, but that's what make's it so nice! No glass windows or hot-water, it's just back to your teenager Robinson. Some will need more comfort, I'm just happy here!

Usually people make a place, unless your in a tropical paradise! With Forra and koh lipe you have the best of both! Aurelie and Tash made us feel more than welcome and helped us out where needed! The bungalows are big and clean and for the price compared to everything else on the island it is really a good deal...

On the plus side this is one of the cheaper options on Koh Lipe. Also the people running this place are incredibly nice- I could imagine diving with them is great. With the bamboo hut its the thing: either its your thing - or not. We met a lot of people who said they loved it or found it great....

We stayed at the Forra for Christmas, and it was very pleasant. Yes, there are mosquitoes in the bungalows, what do you expect, it's a tropical island. There is sufficient protection to sleep comfortably. No, there is no hot water in the shower because it is expensive and difficult to get on Lipe. Yes, it is dirty in the bathroom,...

I am not a fan of writing reviews about places that tend to fail on delivering good products/ services however this one in particular bothered me and my friend to the point of leaving after spending one night in their so called old charming bamboo bungalows. We did not plan at all where to stay so the day before our...
