Overlooking Haad Sairee and the clear waters of the gulf, peaceful Sun Lord provides a range of bungalows ideal for travellers who want to escape the crowds at Sairee but still have its dining options and activities within reach.
Accommodation ranges from very simple wooden huts to large concrete bungalows with hot water, but all come with spectacular views as the huts are spaced for privacy along the rocky hillside. Some of the huts are fairly weathered and worn, so see if you can check a few before deciding on one. A stony path leads to rocky water access where the snorkelling can be very good. The family running Sun Lord is friendly, and their terrace restaurant serves good and authentic Thai food with more incredible views and often plays traditional Thai music. As Sun Lord offers monthly rates, it is a good idea to call ahead and make sure they have availability.
