Lipe Beach Resort was one of the first old-school bungalow spots to shift upmarket by replacing its old bamboo huts with smart wooden bungalows overlooking a phenomenal stretch of northern Sunrise Beach.

Rooms were built at different times and it would be worth having a poke around if virtually all of them didn’t fill up in high season -- reservations are a good idea. Nearly all are now made of wood with thatch roofs and hammocks and/or daybeds on the porches. More than 40 freestanding bungalows squeeze into a relatively small and leafy property, and all but the front-row editions face the rear of other bungalows that almost fully obstruct the sea views.

A dark-wood fan bungalow that we peeped was simple but spacious, with brushed concrete floors, several windows, four-poster bed with mosquito net, fan and modern cold-water bathroom. An extra 800 baht steps you up to a newer and larger fan bungalow with hot-water rain shower and safe. While these rooms are smart, we were a little sad to see that backpackers are no longer catered for at what was once a go-to budget spot.

Large and well-equipped air-con bungalows replaced the old bamboo huts in 2015 at the back of the property, and there’s also a two-floor beachfront bungalow that’s similar to the rooms over at Castaway. Standing directly over the sand with sea view porches, top-end villas come with wide windows, air-con, fridges and king-size beds; these are as cushy as many non-sea-view rooms at lux resorts that go for more cash.

Fronted by a big bamboo heart for those beach selfies, the resort still has a chilled-out “hipster-on-holiday” vibe at the open-air beach bar, massage sala, book exchange and restaurant. It’s enchanting here when dim lanterns and fairy lights get switched on at night. The beachfront is gorgeous and a large trash barge anchors just far enough away to avoid ruining the scenery, though you might pass it on the 10-minute walk to Walking Street.
