Serendipity Beach Resort

Serendipity's motto, "To find something beautiful by chance," doesn't exactly make sense since this eco-friendly upscale resort's 12 wooden bungalows must be booked in advance.

The reception area, restaurant and breezy detached wooden villas are all built over rocks on the hillside at Sunrise Beach's far southern end, lending the place a tree-house feel. Amid the stairways and walkways that connect it all together, semi-private platforms and nooks are outfitted with silk pillows and woven bamboo hammocks with sea views. Each with a ceiling fan and some with air-con, all rooms are thoughtfully decorated and equipped with mini-fridge, safe, coffee-tea facilities, hair dryers and gorgeous bathrooms -- but no TVs. Extras include mosquito repellent and torches, and private plunge pools were installed alongside some rooms for the 2014 - '15 season. While pricey, Serendipity is perfect for a romantic getaway. The secluded beach is rocky and the resort a bit of an effort to reach, but the very helpful staff will do everything in their power to make things easy. At time of writing, a pair of larger resorts was being built next-door and detracting from Serendipity's isolated vibe. If you prefer a larger luxury resort with swimming pool, nearby Idyllic and Anda are also worth considering.
