Mali Resort: Paradise Found
Located in southwest Thailand, Koh Lipe is a crescent shaped island at the mouth of the Malacca Strait, part of the extensive archipelago that composes the Koh Tarutao National Marine Park. Originally settled by the Chao Lay people ("sea gypsies"), Lipe has retained its pristine beauty and easy vibe, far removed from the exhausted tourist scenes of more popular islands.
Of Lipe's three beaches Pattaya offers powdery stone-white sand, calm and gentle turquoise water with beautiful reefs, offering some the islands best snorkeling just meters from the shoreline. It is here, on the shores of Pattaya that we chose to build Mali Resort. Using sustainable materials to create an aesthetic that is at once unique yet natural, high end yet grounded to the authentic tone of island life.
Our ethic is to deliver unparalleled service and comfort in an atmosphere that is as elegant as it is enverionmentally aware and socially minded. Our staff is a mix of international and local hires that practice the best of Western and Eastern traditions in hospitality. So whether it's a lazy day on the white sands of Pattaya, steps from your villa, or signature cocktails at our beachfront taverna, a rigorous hike through the jungles of a neighboring island or exploring the many tropical reefs that surround Lipe, a long tail boat ride or a jaunt through the sites and sounds of Walking Street, the owners and staff at Mali Resort are committed to providing our guests with the most serene holiday imaginable.
