Nice place, not so nice beach
The place looked great on arrival... right on the beach, secluded, nice bungalows. The sunset over ...

What we say: 3.5 stars

Dawn of Happiness is nestled on a secluded golden sand beach at the end of a sandy path off the road to Fossil Shell Beach. Ao Nammao pier is within easy walking distance. It's a small family-run joint with a handful of rustic thatched bungalows and a small restaurant, all shaded by lush palms. Rooms are simple but come with comfy beds, hot water and front porches. The one we checked out even had towels folded like swans. Those nearest to the beach have seaviews through wide windows so you can wake up to the sight of lapping waves. Several lounge chairs and swings are set up along the sand. The beach here is actually better than Railay East but doesn't compare to the finer beaches in Railay, and rooms are perhaps a smidge overpriced. This is truly a getaway sort of spot with hardly any other restaurants within walking distance.
