An awesome experience-would definitely come back”
After reading the reviews for Zanom, I really expected various things to go wrong, but we ended up having a wonderful time. The resort, as said by others is rustic and people who are after a sterile environment should not stay there. Beach bungalows are lined up so that only the first one in the row overlooks the sea and the rest of beach bungalows are behind, so they only have a view of sandy front yard. There are also garden view bungalows in the next line. We booked a beach view bungalow via Agoda and given the resort had vacancies when we arrived, we got upgraded to the only sea view bungalow the resort holds and the resorts holds exclusive right of selling that one via their website only. The bungalow was just as it appeared in the photos I've seen on Agoda, for the beach bungalow. I read some people were saying there was no hot water in the shower. We had no problem, there was as much hot water as desired. The bathroom has a small unit on the wall, next to the shower, with a button, where people can adjust how hot they like their shower water to be and use it straight away. The problem might have arisen sometime in the past, or during dry season when the resort operates in the full capacity. My impression and recommendation is to visit this island during the wet season as we did, because there will much fewer visitors at the island (and still there are more visitors than, in for exaple Koh Samui or Koh Phi Phi in wet season) and everything would be available just like during dry season (although I also read that we would find a few restaurants only open during wet season, which is totally incorrect, everyone is working in the wet season as well). The main problem is that online weather forecasts for any island in Thailand, if looked at during wet season will show rain all the time, once you arrive to the destination, there is no rain, this was the case with us at Koh Lipe as well as last year in October with Koh Samui. I read that a few people had to wait f
Fantastic Family Room”
we booked the double room for two persons and wanted to add extra bed for our 4D3N stay. When we arrived the hotel arranged the family room (F3) for the three of us with additional charge. We were so delighted. The room is huge with double queensbed superb sea view from the room. zanom sunrise hotel is a great place to stay in koh lipe.
Fantastic location, great resort for Christmas ”
We had a fantastic time at zanom sunrise resort. The location was amazing -right on sunrise beach,and the hut was big and clean. Staff were good and the restaurant serves great, good value food. Unfortunately, our hut was really noisy in the mornings. But we told the staff and they would have been more than happy to move us,but the resort was full as it was high Christmas season. Highly recommended overall,really great value for the island.
Zanom Sunrise is modest but charming”
Exactly as expected and advertised. Good location and very nice staff. Excellent huge breakfast every morning. Gigantic servings of curry soups at other meals. Quick to fix things and friendly about it. Thai owned and proprietor lives and works on site, meaning prompt and consistent attention to detail. Ask for F1 if you want a beach view, but be warned that it's adjacent to the bar so is noisy until 11pm or so. F3 is the family cottage and near the beach. Agoda inadvertently cancelled our reservation here two weeks before arrival and went to tremendous lengths to reinstate it by calling me in North Carolina (USA) from Hong Kong and Malaysia at their expense several times. They bent over backwards to correct their error and did it nicely. It gave me confidence in their service, which I intend to use in the future. Back to the Zanom Sunrise Resort, we would definitely stay there again, though we thought US$200/night was far too much for the family cottage even at Christmas. We recommend the place if you can negotiate a cheaper rate. A hundred bucks a night for the family cottage would have been reasonable.
Lovely bungaloows just by the Sunrise beach.”
We staed there for 4 night with 2 small kids (2 and 4 years old). it was really lovly place just steps away from beach. the staff was really nice. the rooms were cleaned each day/fresh towels provided each day. nice hammack outide. Breakfast was good. a/c worked well. I read a lot about different beached in Ko Lipe but this one and Sunset beach are most suitable with kids. Pataya beach was full of boats. We loved our stay in Zanom and in Ko Lipe. Definiatly would stay again. WiFi so so. in restaurant/reception was ok but we didnt have much issues with that. recomenned to all. Mosquito nets abouve each bed. made a difference as there was plenty of mosqitos but hey you are on islands :P
Relax, relax and relax”
The place was just on the beach and from the beach you could snorkel to see very nice fishes. Sunrise Beach is ful of nice restaurants and bars if you dont want to stay only in Zanom. Staffs were so nice and helpful. They offered taxi from and to the harbour. Breakfast was very big. In this place and almost in the whole island you don’t need shoes. My 2-years old girl loved to be in this place and we all really miss Koh Lipe and Zanom. We will come back.
zanomsunrise resort we very thank you so much .love love
We have made a decision to rough it out by staying in a budget hotel and took non-air condition rooms. I read some the reviews made and I would like to point out our observations:: Likes: 1. Safety. You can be assuring when you go about in your leisure time without thinking of losing something important. 2. Warmest. The staff are attentive, helpful nad polite. 3. Taste. Food was great! Mangoes and pineapples were sweet. The local beers were great. 4. Location. I made a correct choice to stay at the sunrise beach. Breezy and cooling. Away from noisy crowded areas like Pattaya Beach area. The beach was just two minutes walk from our rooms. 5. Cooling. The rooms we had did not have air-condition however, it was surprisingly cooling. 6. Serenity. It was break from all our city lives. Just relaxing. 7. Beach. Clean and clear water. Plenty of corals and we watched sunrise. Dislikes: 1. Bathrooms. There was an odour from the bathroom. Somethings cockroaches running around. No instant hot water systems. We had cold showers but we got use to it after a hot day out. 2. Bedrooms. Mosquitos plenty. We did brought along an anti-mozzies spray as a prevention. The hotel did provide mosquito net that you can cover the place. 3. Toiletries. Bring shower gel, shampoos and whatever you need. The hotel do provide them but may not be enough. 4. Pets. There were many dogs around. In fact, the island has many dogs.They were friendly and shouldn't be a show stopper for anyone. 5. Wifi. It could be better if it connects at a higher speed. Anyway, reading a book was better than wifi. we will be returning to this place. Looking forward to that.
central and quiet enough”
Very friendly staff. Many boats lie here (throughout all of sunrise beach), but there is enough room to go into the water and swim. Terrific snorkeling near the two small islands near the beach. You can make a small walk to quieter beaches. Koh Lipe is a bit too crowded with too many motorcycles on the few streets. But many restaurants, shops, diving shops.
Good stay but rooms could do with a little TLC”
We enjoyed staying at Zanom. They help with your bags upon arrival and offer you a nice cold juice as you check in. They also offer a transfer service to the ferry or another place on the island when you check out. The huts are cute. A great size. They have aircon (or fan), a kettle (but no coffee sachets) and fridge. The only downside is that even in air con rooms there are holes around the door and in the bathroom which consequently allow easy access for mosquitoes to get in. Therefore you must sleep under a mosquito net. This made the stay a bit less enjoyable and relaxing. If Zanom could plug these holes and put mosquito grates in the bathroom, it would help a lot. Look out for the mosquito-zapping racquets they provide though - very helpful! The huts have lovely patio areas with a hammock which are nice to relax on or hang out your wet clothes. The location is wonderful! You get a free beach towel and can lie on their sun-loungers on the beach just in front of their restaurant. The staff are chilled but attentive and have a good sense of humour! There are adorable and incredibly friendly kittens, cats and dogs in and around the complex so you’ll be able to enjoy lots of strokes and cuddles should you want them.
Good value for money at sunrise beach”
Zanom is a basic 2 star accommodation on the most beautiful beach of Lipe. We stayed 2 weeks in a family room with airco. Staff are super helpful and quick to respond to your questions. Zanom has a good restaurant with a good selection of Thai and western foods. Rooms and facilities are basic but clean and comfortable and the location at the beach is superb.
Nice bungalow fan”
Nice place..just walk from pataya beach to zanom sunrise beach n very near distance to walking street. But at night had a lot mosquito. Must use hammock to have a good sleep at night..
Great location, very helpful staff, nice food”
Traveled during 06 - 07 Oct 2016. When I booked this hotel, I didn't set high expectation about it because it another hotel I was aiming for was full. So I chose this hotel because it is one among a few hotels on the beach. I am glad I made the right choice. The resort is right on Sunrise Beach and a few minutes walk to city center. One of the best location in Sunrise beach area. The room that I stayed has no air-con but I didn't need it because was cool at night. Food in the hotel is good and the price is not too expensive for an island. Facilities inside rooms are standard. No minibar, water flow from shower is too slow. Don't let these thing bother you. These are good enough for a budget hotel like this. Highly recommended.
Strategic and Perfect Location”
Zanom Sunrise Beach Resort offers a great value for money. We love the beach so much. The canoeing was awesome.
great LOCATION on island”
Very close to Walking Street and other small shops just outside of resort. F1 is the best room, facing the beach. The other beach view rooms (F2, F3, F4) face sideways, but F1 is 'first come first serve'. Room was very rustic and AC had to work hard as when you remove key everything turns OFF...great view for people watching and sunrise. Laundry is just outside resort but don't take light color clothes, wife's light blue short stained, water quality is not the best in Thailand.
Before i decided to book this resort i surveyed at the pantip , all of the result is very good ”
At the pantip said that 5 stars hotel but you will get 7 stars service, i wonder why everybody said as the same word. Until, i went there ... Yes , it's very good place and 7 stars service I couldn't check in at the first day i called to agoda for more info then they contacted to zanom's staff for detail why i couldn't go to the ripe beach at that day after few mininutes ago agoda called to me that zanom resort will refund the money to me at frist day because we didn't know the time to go ripe beach I'm very impress and very happy Friendly staffs Very good service Good location And facilities
We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in bungalow with sea view (F2). This was a fantastic bungalow as we had our son who is nearly 2 so we were easily able to play on the beach and go to the bungalow. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend a stay here. It's my 6th time in Koh Lipe so I know that the accommodation may not be up to standard for the money paid but this island is so magical it more than make up for it!
Perfect beach front , wonderful staff and best Thai food”
Me and my gf plan to hop around beach and restaurants but ended up doing it all here. It's the best Thai food I ever tasted just order any kind. The beach is few steps away from table, massage bed and long bench. Super nice beach. Amazing sunrise view . Meow meow the supervisor was helpful and friendly so does the team . Best massage and great happy hour deal. All you need is here.
My family and Ihad a wonderful time!”
Good value for a budget hotel. Rooms are very spacious and right next to the beach. Staff are very helpful and breakfast was great! Would recommend Zanom beach resort!
Very good location, staff very polite and friendly, excellent Restsurant on the beach.”
We were staying in a bungalow just next to a local neighborhood, with some noise from the people doing their daily housework . This did not bother us at all and we found it cute, contrary to some other travelers that wanted to change rooms. If you want to catch the sunrise, there is no problem. The next door rooster never missed a second and every day at six o'clock was calling for the morning wake up. Our bungalow was spacious and comfortable and whenever we asked for cleaning service it was offered immediately. We had every day drinking water for free. Breakfast, that was included in the room price, was offered in four types to choose from, with extra coffee with no additional charge. Everything was fine, except two times during our stay that we saw some cockroaches "exploring" the bathroom. Overall, we had a nice and relaxed stay.
The location of Zanom is great. Right in the middle of Sunrise beach and a short walk into town. The bungalows are a step above average, the beds are really hard though. We were really happy with the Zanom restaurant. The food was great and the music had us up and dancing every night. We enjoyed our stay here.
