My husband and I left the children at home and spent 6 wonderful nights at Serendipity in late January 2012. We had a great stay. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We stayed in the highest of the bungalows (Number 10) meaning about 160 steps to get there but as a result we had privacy, it was quiet apart from the long tailed boats which can be heard all over the island but thankfully only for a few hours during the morning and again in the afternoon and not at night, and we had amazing views from our balcony. I really appreciated that the bungalows have been blended into the forest meaning that from the sea you can hardly see the resort. Also there were jungle trees everywhere with eagles, large fruit bats, frogs, geckos etc all around. The room was lovely - very comfortable but also simple and traditional. The island itself was more developed than I expected but Serendipity has the best spot on Koh Lipe with a nearly private little white sandy beach and lovely swimming, kayaking and snorkelling right off the beach and around a nearby island. The water is clear, the sand is white and there are loads of fish to see. The surrounding islands in the archipeligo are covered with jungle and totally undeveloped. We were there in the peak period and I would recommend going at a quieter time of year such as May when it would be more humid but much quieter. The restaurant was small and had spectacular views with lots of different comfy seating options. The food was great and reasonably priced. The Thai massages and snorkelling trip organised through the resort were also wondeful and great value. All in all a great holiday thanks to Noo, Carl and the other staff. Thanks again. Nina and Nick.
