Sunrise Beach Resort

Longterm visitors to the island will know the location and may well recognize some of the bungalows – as Sunrise Beach Resort is built on the site of The Souk (a long standing budget bungalow resort).  The Souk restaurant is still there but Sunrise Beach Resort has taken over the bungalows and has built a new pool and additional bungalows adjacent. 

Bungalow at Sunrise Beach Resort, Koh Chang

As it is a new resort the gardens haven’t yet reached the same stage in their growth as their neighbours at Amber Sands Beach Resort and Serenity Resort.  So the grounds appear a bit sparse and less attractive. 

But the bungalows are spotlessly clean and guests love the large swimming pool and swim up bar.  However, the staff are the overriding reason to stay here.  They are mentioned in most reviews as being some of the most kind and helpful you will find anywhere.  The only downside is that there are only a couple of small shops within walking distance and options for dining out at night are limited. 

So another small resort that is definitely recommended.  You’re hardest decision will be to choose this or Amber Sands or Serenity Resort. Two other highly rated small resorts also share this stretch of beach – Amber Sands and Sunrise Beach Resort.  Check them out and see which you prefer.

Perfect place to relax and have a good quite time for reflection. 😀 - The location was perfect. Very friendly wonderful staff and very peaceful. The food was very good. 😞 - Nothing
Exceptional 😀 - Amazing friendly host, small occupancy accommodation which is never crowded. Amazing swimming pool (although the big killer tiled on pool bottom had me a lil confused) it was very clean and a great size. Wish I had a chance to order a drink at the pool bar. Rooms where fantastically sealed from bugs alike. First beach bungalow I've ever had where the bathroom is completely sealed! 😞 - Genuinely can't find a fault with it. Tidy out of the way resort, perfect for a restful stay.
Beach Paradise 😀 - The resort is exactly as shown in the pictures. The bungalow was right on the sea shore and incredibly clean and comfortable. Excellent food and the service was impeccable. 😞 - Not applicable.
Lovely place to stay 😀 - This is a great place to stay. Away from the crowds in a peaceful beach setting. The resort is beautiful and well-maintained, the bungalow is clean and comfortable and the views are stunning. Last but not least: Pen and her staff are super friendly and welcoming. We felt at home instantly and had a lovely stay. Highly recommended.
We had a lovely time. Only stayed 2 nights but would have stayed longer if we knew how nice it was! 😀 - This was a lovely little resort, basically a collection of bungalows dotted around an infinity pool, right on the beach. They served lovely pancakes for breakfast as well as eggs, bacon etc, and also lunch and dinner options were delicious. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice with en suite bathrooms, international power sockets, air con, tea and coffee facilities and a fridge.
Fantastic place to stay. I thoroughly recommend. 😀 - We loved the pretty beach very quiet and kept clean by the team. Peng the owner really looked after us and was very helpful and all of the staff were friendly. The pool is lovely and usually very quiet. Our bungalow was right on the beach which was lovely and the hammocks a great addition. We really relaxed and did pretty much nothing which was just what we wanted. The food was also great and we especially enjoyed the curries in particular the massaman. 🙏 The food at Aunties on the main road is really excellent too. We went there for lunch most days. We weren’t very impressed with the food at the two other resorts nearby. However it was nice to have a cocktail at the serenity next door. 😞 - There was very little we didn’t like about the property the only thing was the beds were hard. A nice thick mattress topper or some foam could solve this though.
