Ricci House was one of the first inland hotels to open on Lipe and it remains a fine choice for the sorts of rooms and services that you’d expect from a midrange city hotel on the Thai mainland.

The hotel offers rooms in a three-storey building and larger editions in yellow concrete bungalows found further back down a palm-draped walkway. Set on the ground floor or upper floors accessed by stairs, the cheapest rooms make up for minimal space with extras like safes, fridges, desks, fast WiFi, coffee/tea facilities and LCD TVs facing cushy queen beds with lots of pillows. These will do the trick if you need to pamper yourself after a stretch of staying in basic bungalows.

Though about the same size, the villa rooms feel larger due to smarter designs and they also have hardwood floors and walls rather than concrete. Apart from the odd crack in the tiling below sinks in the hot-water wet bathrooms, the rooms we peeped appeared well kept. Each of them also bags you sliding glass doors opening to private furnished balconies.

Overall the standard of accommodation at Ricci is better than what you’ll find for similar prices at the big beach resorts. Staff is notably polite and helpful, and rates include a very good breakfast buffet in an enormous streetside pavilion that doubles as reception.

Also near Sunrise Beach, Harmony Bed and Bakery is a slightly cheaper inland option for modern air-con rooms, or you could head around the corner to save some cash at The Reef. Rates at Ricci jump by 200 baht on weekends, and we found cheaper rates through It closes for low season.
