“Great service, great rooms, the vila is in high price (other rooms are just fine as well)”
Reviewed 28 February 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the vila (the bigest one) room for 2 night, booked with Booking in a better price 5,200 THB insted of 5,700.

Pro:
Room has 2 showers
Great big bed
Good breakfast
Great service
Great location (in the middle of the east side)
Great restaurant (dinner/launch)

Cons:
Outside shower is filled with ants (not in the room although, and disepear when you open the water)
Bed sheets has small stains on its
Frogs outside the room making a loud nosie (for very sensitive ppl it will be a bit hard to fall a sleep).

This side is a better side for staying, only 10 min walk to the west beach, diamond cave and the south beach.

Enjoy...

Located on the 'swamp' beach side of Railay, but this didn't bother us as its only a short walk to either of the two better beaches on Railay.

Our room, although standard , was massive and as was the bathroom / shower area and was modern and spotlessly clean. We had a nice porch with table and chairs where we could have an evening drink. Wifi in the room was patchy. The hotel ground were kept very clean and were well presented

Breakfast was a buffet affair and had a good choice. We didn't eat here at night so can't really comment on the restaurant in the hotel.

The pool area was small and not many sun loungers but we spent most of our time on the other beaches.

We loved our stay at this hotel, don't let the location put you off!

We might have been influenced by the beauty of Railay, but this resort made it perfect. Staff was more than helpful with everything, we were upgraded to a water, pool view which was delightful, espec in the mornings with the monkeys swinging around the mango trees. Even though no beach on east Railay, the location is great, 5 minutes to West Railay Beach where the prices were higher for everything but the scenery is amazing. East Railay has the most choice of good restaurants, any price you want and great energy. Sunrise Tropical includes a dynamite breakfast buffet, with an array of fruits, we had to ask what stuff was, in addition to thai, western, whatever you desired. Excellent food! We kept prolonging our departure and would def go back to this bit of paradise.

Room Tip: The pool/water view room was super, with a little porch. We did change to a room in back for one nig...

Sunrise is a very nice resort, with very reasonable prices in comparison to other places in Railay. It also compares very well in terms of standard of accomodation. Being smaller than other places of simialr standard, you get good services and we found the staff freindly. We had a bit of confusion on arrival because of a change of rooms (there 5 of us) to move us away from construction noise (it is everywhere in Thailand and you can't avoid it no matter where you go), and we didn't end up with the room configurations we initially booked. However, it was a room upgrade to the very nice Villa Plus's and the manager subsequnetly checked that we were ok, so that all worked out nicely.

While not on West Railay, that beach is only 5 minutes or less work. In any case, the best beach is Phra Khanong, and Sunrise is the second closest hotel. The tidal East Railary is fine, and has its own picturesque charm and character. There is also a better range of bars and restaurants in East Railay.

We also found the hotel restaurant reasonable with very nice food. Tip: get the seafood kebab and bring some beer or wine to put in the fridge.

I recommend this hotel and couldn't see another hotel in Railay of similar standard at a simialr price.

Room Tip: The Tropical Villa Plus's are beautiful, but all rooms look good. Check when you book if there...

This accommodation is on Railay East... Basically, the side of Railay which doesn't have a beach. This shouldn't put you off.. Still great views from the front and literally a 5 minute walk takes you to the West side with it's wonderful beach and nice quiet bars a restaurants..

On the west, everything shuts down at 10:30 with quite a few of the resorts and restaurants not serving alcohol, this isn't a bad thing as it does help you stay off the stuff or you can always go to the mini mart, buy some beers or wine and take them in with you, they are happy for you to do this..

Sitting on the beach at night with a beer and just relaxing is amazing... I've been to Phi Phi and although granted, it is postcard perfect with the paradise islands, it's far too busy.. Railay was perfect in every way...

On the East there are busier bars if you want music till late, fire shows etc... It has the best of both worlds..

Sunrise was nice, we opted for a villa which was really nice.. Free water, bug plug and refill provided, slippers etc etc...

We had a villa which sat right next to the main path that took you to the West side, this meant from 6am you got the workers, tourists leaving etc etc... A bit annoying bit we weren't wanting to move as it wasn't that bad, just meant you felt that despite a lovely villa in really pretty grounds, you had 2ft one way a path with constant traffic..

Another issue we faced was 30GBP was taken out of a bag, we only noticed after leaving, it was our own fault as we didn't use the safe. I e mailed sunrise when I got back, just so they could track any trends with certain staff, they replied asking to clarify if it was house keeping. I replied saying I can only assume so... No reply, no apology etc etc... It was our fault but an apology would have gone a long way...

Staff ok, most speak enough english to get by so that's fine..

All in all, lovely destination, good, clean accommodation so we would go back...

Just select room away from path and as with any destination, use the safe as the money that went missing is probably more than a months wage... Possibly can't blame them if we are sill enough to leave to unattended in bags..

Good choice though and will be back..

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from path which runs along resort... We stayed in villa but chalets looked fine...

Sunrise was perfect for the rock climbing excursion my wife and I came to Railay to partake in. Rooms were clean and nice, service was good and the staff was helpful. Price was great and the location was gorgeous with the hotel being 5 minutes from everything. If you are coming to Railay to hang out at your hotel, you are missing out and should probably go somewhere else. This is a great place to rest your head after a long day climbing, snorkeling, taking day trips etc.

Room Tip: Go to Hot Rocks Climbing for your rock climbing adventure!
