The most distant of Lipe’s western coves hosts Pitiusas, a relaxing little resort with fan and air-con bungalows built above a great seaside terrace.

Facing the sea on a tree-studded hill accessed by steep steps, wooden fan bungalows come with framed pictures of the Buddha and iconic Thai monuments along with firm beds, mosquito nets, basin sinks and flush toilets in cold-water bathrooms, and terrific porches with hammocks and sea views. The resort also has a few larger air-con and hot-water rooms made of wood and concrete with glass doors; these are stacked closer together behind the restaurant and lack the natural feel of the fan bungalows.

Not a bad view.

Arriving entails heading down a sealed lane lined with towering banners in pink, black and white. You then reach the small private beach and large common terraces done up with hammocks, floor cushions and candlelit tables; a semi-private deck in the corner beneath some palms is especially inviting. The beachfront and excellent snorkelling opportunities just offshore help to make up for rates that are on the high side, at least for the fan bungalows.

The resort rents out kayaks, offers snorkelling gear for free and hosts hatha yoga sessions in the mornings. Stroll to the west at low tide to find a number of other coves and rocky viewpoints. It’s a 20-minute walk from here to Walking Street, but Pattaya Beach is more easily reached thanks to a cross-island lane found nearby.

On our most recent trip we opted to list Pitiusas rather than Sanom Beach Resort, which offers similar but slightly pricier fan bungalows overlooking another private cove on the south coast. Pitiusas has much-better common areas and we like the outlook a little better, but Sanom is closer to the action thanks to a walkway extending along the rocks from Pattaya Beach. Either of these Thai/Spanish-staffed resorts should do the trick for seclusion.
