Warapura’s cushy rooms with a surfer theme make it a good choice for young couples seeking luxury by the sea.

Using blue trim and floor-to-ceiling windows between the white concrete walls to achieve a “cabana chic” look, Warapura’s rooms wouldn’t look out of place in Santorini. For the most part they’re bright, clean, comfortable and kitted out with flatscreen TVs, fridges, WiFi, safes, desks, polka-dotted lamps and rain showerheads in spacious hot-water bathrooms. Most also have tables on small terraces facing the sea.

The so-called “cozy rooms” in an attached building aren’t too shabby, but we’d cough up the extra cash for a larger freestanding villa—especially one of the four set in a private area steps from the shore. The one we checked out had a high quality king size bed, polished concrete floor and windows affording a sea view from bed. Other options include a good-value triple room and poolside villa.

Though we still like Warapura, it’s a boutique resort and we’ve found that this class of accommodation tends to look brilliant on opening day but eventually gets rundown unless careful maintenance is undertaken. The room we saw appeared as flash as ever, but we noticed some cracking concrete and wood that could use a fresh varnish throughout the resort on our most recent visit.

Warapura partially makes up for its rocky seafront by way of a small and narrow infinity pool with loungers facing the sea. From there you could head into the large restaurant and bar where barbecued seafood and pizza is served seaside to floor cushions on a roofed deck. Most staffers we’ve encountered have been young and helpful, and we like the chill-out vibe.

This was one of the first flashpacker-range resorts to appear in Lonely Beach and it remains very popular, filling up for most of high season. It’s notably a favourite of hip Thais from Bangkok along with anyone who wants to stay near the nightlife without digging into the many shabby bungalows and guesthouses that dot the nearby village. Do however expect muffled noise from the bars at Warapura after dark.

Further south down the coast, the newer Nest Sense Resort also has cushy concrete rooms starting at around 2,800 baht in high season. It also does not have beachfront, and the location, while quieter, is a longer walk from the beach. Nature Beach Resort is worth a look if you demand a sandy beachfront.
