We stayed for one night in the pool access room, which is worth the extra money to use straight from your balcony. The staff are extremely attentive and very polite. Food and drinks at the resort are tasty. The room facilities were excellent, modern and clean. Crisp fresh linen and comfy beds. Lovely pool. Good location on the beach and to walking street - We only stayed one night due to no availability in the hotel. However this turned out to be a blessing as we moved to sunrise beach which I would say is a much nicer location (check out idyllic concept which is a very similar hotel to Akira - modern, boutique hotel with lovely food, drinks and location). I would return to both!

A lovely hotel, situated with the most breathtaking view from the pools, bar and restaurant.. The huge hotel room was very well maintained and clean, Service, Check-In and Food, all above expectations for this little quirky Island.. Will definitely return and wouldn't stay anywhere else besides Akira resort.

Room Tip: The rooms attached to your own swimming pool :-)

Great location feet from immigration and entrance of walking street, beautiful pool with happy hour from 4-7pm, spacious, upscale rooms in standard room option, cold ac and great shower, bathroom amenities, went above and beyond after simple note on booking site when I left the comment “fathers birthday” met with balloons and sign on bed. Highly recommend the splurge for a day you wish to spend by the pool overlooking the ocean and unparalleled views for sunset.

Literally on the beach pool and restaurant.
Amazing views day or night, food was great. Staff are not as friendly as phuket or samui, there is a noticeable indifference to guests. Polite but its common on koh lipe.
Lots of tourists here so I understand their feelings.

With so much expectations of Ko Lipe based on the comments. The island is really quite sub par.
Starting from the custom officers at the immigration (who barks and embarrass tourists, with no clue on the order of the immigration flow), you kinda have an expectation that the Island isn't run by true Thai hospitality as compared to other parts of Thailand.
The hotel likewise, is the same. Service staff was rude, no room service, wifi was hopeless and best of all the rooms were infested with Mosquitoes. For the price you pay at this hotel, you are better off at other premium hotels in Bangkok.
The only saving grace of Ko Lipe will only be the restaurants at the walking street where the people were much nicer and hospitable.
