Nice beach club style resort at Lipa Noi Beach on the east coast of Koh Samui island. This video shows an in-depth tour of a Garden Villa and a few walks around the resort area – at mid-day, afternoon, evening and in the morning.
Staff was very welcoming and professional. Our garden villa had a nice chunky feel to it, it was very clean and comfy. The resort is easy to get around and the beach is just a short stroll away from any room. Nothing seemed to be missing here – lush gardens, vast spa menu, Fitness Center, Cafe and Kids Corner if you are traveling with kids.
The food was fantastic and the best part about this resort I think. Really fresh and great value. Solid selection of drinks if you like drinking. The breakfast-buffet was super fresh as well, way above your average resort. When they have comb honey set up you know it’s going to be awesome. Hats off to the Swedish chef at the time of our stay.
The beach is nice, not the best for swimming perhaps but great sunset and general chilling. It was mostly calm and wide enough for long strolls when the tide is low. Lipa Noi Beach felt like a pretty laid back beach.
While this is a beach club venue with bounce music pretty much all day I wasn’t bothered with it in the garden villa. The music stopped fairly early and the area was very calm at night. I’m personally not interested in beach clubs and pool parties, but I would not hesitate to stay at Nikki beach again for the tasty food and snacks.
No major cons, maybe the old TV in our villa. The shower head had some squirt in the wrong direction. If you are sensitive to club music to you then this is probably not the resort for you.
