Easily overlooked amid a tangle of small resorts, Larissa has four rows of white concrete villas to go with its own little sandy beach.

Simple yet comfy rooms, quiet atmosphere, cheerful staff and convenient location are all selling points here.

Spacious freestanding villas face one another across narrow lawns with a few trees. While you don’t get a sea view through the glass sliding doors, it’s possible to glimpse the sea from a furnished front deck if you snag one of the rooms closest to the coast. Topped with thatch roofs for a flare of the exotic, the white concrete villas are spacious and simply decorated with abstract art on white walls. They come with firm beds on light-grain wood frames and floors, LCD TVs, WiFi, fridges, chairs and medium-size hot-water wet bathrooms. Appliances and furnishings are all of an average quality and rooms are well kept despite a few chips in the wood. All are identical in size and price, the only difference being a choice of one queen bed or two twin beds.

You won’t find a proper reception area let alone a restaurant, spa or pool. The owner takes nearly all reservations online and meets guests when they arrive, but don’t be surprised if no English speaking staff are available when she’s out and about. For those who don’t need extra facilities, Larissa’s rooms are comparable to the pricier rooms at nearby Baan Supparod.

You might have some trouble finding Larissa, which is squeezed between the similar-looking LeBlanc Resort and Laem Yai Hut, and only marked by a small sign at the inland entrance. To find it from Haad Sai Kaew, walk through Laem Yai Hut to the north coast, turn left and you’ll see Larissa’s white villas on the left. The location is a three-minute walk to Haad Sai Kaew and 10 minutes to Samet Village.
