One of the better of Lipe’s many newish midrange resorts, Wapi occupies a chunk of what used to be Tarutao Cabana Resort around the centre of Sunrise Beach.

In addition to adding freestanding concrete villas set among casuarina trees with tinted glass-windows overlooking the sea, the Spanish managers gutted old rooms in attached single-floor buildings to create modern accommodation for those who like their comforts. Outfitted with tile floors, modern furnishings and soft beds, all rooms come with air-con and LCD TVs, and the two pricier categories also bag you a fridge and balcony. The rooms are immaculate with bright modern art to contrast a cool, minimalist design. Large bathrooms come with hot water, dark tiles and quality appliances.

The refreshingly simple resort offers Thai massage and kayak rental along with a wooden sea-view deck with sofas and tables. The restaurant serves Thai and European fare and closes at 18:00, after which the resort becomes rather dark.

Next door, Salisas Resort offers less-inspiring air-con rooms for around 500 baht less, and its Happy Vibe Beach Bar helps to make up for Wapi’s lack of a bar. Do make reservations at Wapi if you want to stay here in high season.
