Hotel Review: Mali Resort Koh Lipe, Thailand

Lovely resort

Mali is a wonderful resort sets at a quiet end of the Pattaya beach. The sand is fine white powder and water is crystal blue clear, very beautiful. The resort is named after their dog Mali, a very sweet golden retriever.

Mali Resort offers five different categories of room. Balinese Luxury Beachfront, Balinese Luxury Ocean View, Balinese Luxury Tropicle Villas, Beachfront Garden Wing and Garden Wing.

All the rooms, except Garden Wing have a sliding glass doors that provide you a ultimate seaview or garden view. The rooms, whether you choose to stay in the cheaper Garden Wing or in the deluxe Bali style bungalows, are exquisite.

All the rooms are equipped with 5-star bedding, air conditioning, a safety box, a small fridge that refills daily with two bottles water, a flat TV with a decent choice of channels and a DVD player. Movies can be borrowed at the bar free of charge. Wifi at Mali Resort is free but only accessable in the bar and restaurant area.

The Luxury Balinese rooms are spacious, very clean and functional with big windows and sliding glass doors. The beds are comfortable and the decor is beautiful. The outdoor open-air bathroom is lovely and big. There are two washbasins and two rainfall showers.

There is a big and green shared garden, a bar and a small restaurant area being in the middle of the resort. Plenty of hammocks around the bar area for relaxing or reading a book.

American style breakfast is served in the restaurant near the beach. Breakfast is made by order and you can choose how you want the eggs to be cooked. Their filter coffee tastes incredible good.

As the resort is located at the end of Pattaya Beach, the longtail boats traffic is light. The guests and children can enjoy the beach safely. A great place for family with kids and plenty of swim equipments for children to borrow at the restaurant.
