place beautiful, quiet, just a pity that the locals developed a liking for motorbikes, you can not come to the beach to you every two steps avoiding any motorcycle did not, instead spends its charm for input on Lipe are paid per person 250BTH Swimming on Lipe is still amazing, but the food and drink is already very expensive

Forra Diving Sunrise Beach is in a new location behind the beach where they have the bar and restaurant. The bamboo's bungalows are quiet, with hot water. A restaurant is in the middle of the place. The other one, on the beach is really peaceful and you can spend easily 3 hours just... doing nothing and enjoy!

Forra is an excellent place to stay & dive. All the team are professional, accommodating, helpful & easy-going. We were lucky to dive with Antoine (owner) who's a generous host and extremely experienced diver. All the team do a great job to maintain safety standards and deliver quality customer service. I arrived at Sunrise resort when I was booked in...

Away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Street, these simple little cabanas/ beach huts provide the perfect beach side escape. The basic yet tasteful huts are located metres away from sunrise beach and a short walk away from the main walking street.

Forra Bamboo Resort. Is on Sunrise beach and is located away from the busy and now almost industrial side of what was an unspoilt beach. The bamboo bungalows are spacious clean and well maintained. The mostly French staff of both the resort and diving centre were friendly and very helpful. We had minor problems with vermin from a nearby kitchen...

We stayed 5 nights in family bungalows. Accommodation was excellent, clean bungalows, comfortable beds and hot water. Staff was very kind and helpful. Disadvantages: 1. There are just few trees so bungalows are almost under the sun. The hot weather in May disturbed us 2.Location: There is a village behind the bungalows. Roosters, children, even some adults who fix something...

Many thanks to Antoinne and his crew for looking after us. Five star service, flexible and great value. He even organised a last minute liveaboard for us. The food was fantastic in resort and on the liveaboard. Antoinne has a fantastic knowledge of the local dive sites and a welcoming laid back attitude. Highly reccommended.

French-driven, familiar-feeling bamboo bungalows. The bungalows are in very good state and quite big. Please be aware that Forra has two different ressorts - one at the main beach and the other one on the east coast. The one in the east coast is directly located next to native people's place (which is a bit noisy). The ressort on east...

I would highly recommend Forra Dive. We stayed in their bamboo huts on Sunrise beach. The huts are brand new and the accommodation has a really cool vibe to it. The staff are brilliant and we had a lot of fund with Marcus, Jose and crew on the dive boat for the day. I would highly recommend them for both...

I cannot rate this place highly enough for those on a budget. The shacks were great and beds had fly nets, for the price it was amazing... Location was away from the crows and the island is walkable so it adds something more. Antoine was relaxed and welcoming, his team were superb and I felt so warmly welcomed and supported....

“Travel light. Try to avoid luggage with wheels as Forra is far away from the immigration check point. Opt for another hotel if you are looking for an air-conditioned room with hot shower.”
