A good simple restaurant with good food. Open for breakfast too. Perfect for this beautiful quiet beach. No wifi so you can focus on friends, food and surroundings. Definitely open January 2015. We visited several times.

Definitely not closed. Staff very welcoming and food at the restaurant usual high standard. This is a little piece of paradise. Beach is breathtaking. Very quiet and beautiful. Not for people who want to be entertained. Great for walks and sun worshiping and reading and photos and stuff.

Tried to get here for dinner on October 2nd, 2014 - closed... I wonder whether it is too much trouble to put this on their website? after all, isn't this what websites are for? The website didn't give any information about seasonal opening/closing. sorry I am a bit appalled by that.

October is very quiet here and normally bad weather so if there is no one around we will not sit here for 24 hours/day. We all have homes to go to and a life outside the restaurant... I wonder whether it is too much trouble to call the number on our website before starting the walk along the beach? after... More

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
