Sunrise Resort is about 7 km from Bang Saphan centre, so it is good to prearrange for a pick up if you are arriving by train - there are no tuk tuks around the tiny trainstation. The Italian owner is a nice quiet gentleman who helps with any queries and/or problems the best he can. The Thai staff doesn't really speak any English, but are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food at the restaurant good. The beach is just next door, unspoiled and long. This is a lovely getaway place if you are looking for a quiet time in a beautiful location.
Beware that it is difficult to get to town, though, if you need to ho to a bank/pharmacy/market etc. - you can rent a scooter or a bike form the hotel, but in case you want/need to drive, there is no taxi service. A member of staff or the owner himself might take you, though, but that makes you dependent on the lift back, too. I hope the owner would connect with a local driver to be utilized for guest transportation.
The hotel pooI is really small and should be cleaned & kept clean - it was not very inviting - but as the sea is right there, we could go for a swim there.
I enjoyed my week at Sunrise a lot and would love to return there!
