Tipa Resort is a modern, family-oriented place, very well located less than 150m to the sea in Ao Nang. An entrance down a private road ensures peace and privacy in your room. The resort is well laid-out in large, landscaped gardens so even when full, it never feels overcrowded.
The owners have recently revamped the resort and made some rooms and all the facilities wheelchair-friendly, which means that even the swimming pool is accessible. The ramp to get there is quite steep, but it’s worth the effort as you’ll enjoy panoramic views across the cliffs of Ao Nang, as well as cocktails from the poolside bar. There’s also a small children’s playground, as well as an informal restaurant and library area in the lobby.
With 120+ rooms, Tipa is one of the bigger resorts we offer, but it still, we think, manages to retain a personal touch in the service you will receive. The oldest rooms in the resort are the bungalows, which usually attract the bad Trip Advisor reviews; others are more modern and well-appointed – the Grand Deluxe are our favourite. Families take note of the connecting bedroom suites, while couples may like the romantic Teak bungalows hidden away in the garden.
