Like its sister resort in Ham Tien, this brand new four-star beauty is set among 6.5 hectares of tropical gardens and alongside a stunning beach. It is, however, more remote and peaceful as its setting is between fishing villages along an undeveloped stretch of coast about 20km south of Phan Thiet. It comprises of 148 rooms and bungalows with some facing the gardens or the sea. There are also three villas, one with a private swimming pool.
Sunsea is a small, boutique resort that is both charming and quiet, yet centrally located on the busy Ham Tien-Mui Ne Strip. It was fully renovated in 2012 with high-quality materials, including marble, slate and granite imported from Italy and beautiful local wood species.
This tropical paradise comprises 15 rooms and bungalows that are refreshingly simple but with upmarket fixtures and added touches of luxury. Each room has a balcony and combines thatched roofs with lacquer and wood accents, melding tropical Asian and French styles. The beautiful, round bungalows have furniture custom-made to follow the curves, and large, open bathrooms that must be seen to be believed.
The resort is all about quality, which extends to the service provided by the experienced and loyal staff.
The beachfront Sukhothai Grill restaurant next to the beautiful pool serves the best Thai dishes along the Ham Tien-Mui Ne Strip, as well as tasty Vietnamese and European meals. The atmosphere here at night is magical with coloured lighting, the floodlit pool and occasional torches on the beach.
A number of recreational activities are available at the resort and sports equipment can be purchased or rented.
