Sporting a collection of white concrete villas set over rocks within a few steps of the surf, the old Sunrise Villas underwent major renovations in recent years.

The once-grimy bungalows have re-emerged as smart and comfortable rooms in a convenient location with sea views.

The mini-resort offers older/smaller bungalows built at ground level and some larger editions set on chunky concrete bases -- we’d pay extra for one of the latter options if possible. All bungalows are made entirely of concrete apart from the crimson tin-roof ceilings, each with a hammock strung to a sea-view porch. While they won’t win any design competitions, the freshly redone interiors come with dark-tile floors, small safes, fridges, hot-water wet bathrooms and tinted glass doors that allow you to watch the boats cruise by from the comfort of a sturdy wood-frame bed. Many furnishings appeared new at research time in March 2016, and the room that we checked out was very clean. WiFi is free but patchy.

We reckon that Sunrise Villas now has some British involvement: the very friendly Thai receptionist spoke with a clear English accent and excellent English breakfasts are available from the on-site Kjeat’s Kitchen. Even if not staying here, it’s worth stopping by to dine on Kjeat’s romantic seaside terrace. Though you’ll need to go about a kilometre to the west or south to reach the nearest beach, the location puts you within sight of Nadan Pier and makes a fine home base.

Sunrise Villas is often fully booked in high season. If you don’t make reservations and it’s full, head a bit further west along the north coast to Baan Pra Kai Kaew, or perhaps wander inland to Barbados Terrace.
