The small Cha Inn looks more like a trendy cafe, but head upstairs after ordering your super-sized iced latte to find nicely kitted-out rooms, some with sea views and all with more style than most places.

Oversized rooms (for a shopfront set-up) are reached by broad wooden staircases with exposed steel supports—they must have totally gutted the existing building to craft this—and offer comfy beds, immaculate bathrooms and mini-daybeds, which, while arguably wasted in the rear facing rooms, are great in the seaview editions. You also get a TV, fridge and partitioned hot-water shower in the bathrooms. Cleanliness appeared well looked after.

If possible, do splurge for one of the seaview rooms with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors opening to furnished balconies. Though they come with the same amenities (and are 400 baht cheaper), rooms at the back are a lot darker. If staying in one of these, you could hang out in a spacious common lounge on the second floor decorated with sofas and cool modern art.

The place really feels like an “inn”, with a restaurant and bar serving quality Thai food to a ground floor dining area and a few more tables with sea views on a second-floor terrace. Offering free WiFi, the staffers were friendly and quick to show us the rooms. Cha Inn also has a good location near loads of other restaurants and just south of the beach’s best stretch of sand.
