We stayed in one of the basic huts for our first 2 nights in Thailand, the huts were exactly as advertised and what we expected. We had nearly the whole beach to ourselves most of the time, there are a few hotels further down the beach but no one seemed to venture very far down. The restaurant is very well... More

We stayed at Seaside Cottages for two nights when we first got to Phuket. We stayed in the most basic hut and it was fine and as expected. A comfortable mattress on the floor with a mosquito net. There is a great family feel to the place and Malcom, the owner is a very personable person. The cottages are located... More

This place is everything you want, the cottages are beautiful and very clean, the bathroom is nice and very clean. The food is amazing and cheap. It's so close to the beach which is great for swimming at. It's outstanding for the price and would recommend to anybody that just wants to relax

Stayed here for two nights in December 2013 at the start of a fortnight holiday and it was the perfect beginning to our trip. It's properly back to basics - just like camping but with a roof! We opted for a hut which is literally a mattress and a fan. It was very clean and a 10 second walk away... More

Great place in wonderful and quiet surroundings. What you read on the web is what you get. Very basic, but that's what it's all about, campground like. Don't go there to party or for fancy restaurants. Don't go if afraid of dogs (do no harm at all). Very friendly staff to have a chat with. Btw: there's a mini mart... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights in October. We found out about it after a friend suggested it. If you want somewhere totally cut off from the rest of the world then this is the place for you. If however, you are planning to use this as a base to do some sight seeing around the local... More

We had a wonderful time at Seaside Cottages. It was very stormy during our stay but we simply spent the time relaxing in the restaurant, eating delicious food and enjoying the company of fellow guests and the hotel owner Malcolm. We stayed in one of the round cottages which was very pleasant, you can camp or stay in one of... More

Great beach bungalow, we stayed in round bungalow with private bathroom and fan for 8 nights. This place is lovely and quiet. The owner Malcolm was very accommodating and friendly. This is a great place if you are wanting quiet, if your wanting the bright lights of Phuket or the party atmosphere then this is not for you. I can't... More

I visited Seaside Cottages last week for 3 nights, this was not my first time and I was happy as always to stay here. The food and drink are great and Malcolm and Koy always give a warm welcome. The only slight let-down is the number of Russians on the beach who think it is morally acceptable to wear Speedos... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Very natural resort with modern facilities and friendly English speaking staff. Round En-Suite Cottages, Beach Huts and Campground. Licenced Restaurant open to the public and serving a large variety of Thai & English food. This site is one of the most natural and quietest areas of Phuket and a complete contrast to the overdeveloped south. There is no road along the beach so you will not be disturbed by noisy traffic or nightclubs and although we are only a few kilometers from the airport you you cannot hear the aircraft. It is our policy to operate using environmentally friendly practices as much as possible. All building and fittings are recently constructed so you can be sure of clean & presentable facilities. ... more   less
