“Just perfect! Very peaceful place! Gorgeous food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

After looking for a hotel on trip advisor we decided to go for the first ranked one and were not disappointed!
This place is just paradise if you want to get away from your day to day busy and stressful routine and do not wish to mix up with the flow of tourists!
The bungalows are situated around an hour away from the city (accessible only with 4x4) and give access to a very quite bay/beach (you have to walk around 15 minutes in the jungle, very sharp way).
The restaurant is just awesome! We stayed there 4 days and then travelled for another 6 days and I kept being disappointed with other restaurants!
If you are not looking for something fancy it is the place to go! The view is just amazing and the owner and staff very friendly and helpful!
Unlike some other commentaries said you are not tracked there, if you want to go away for a day you can easily get a taxi service from the two restaurants situated on the beach!

Thanks a lot to Patrick, his wife, Aom and others for taking such a good care of us!

Having been to Krabi which has nice beaches but tons of tourists, coming to Seaview was a relief and a pleasant surprise! The owner is a very nice man from German who runs the Bungalow and restaurant business. What can I say? It is very homely, would not stay another place both if I were going to Koh Phangan or if I would travel to Thailand (meaning its highly recommended). The two bad reviews it got must have suffered from som Western disease. This is the genuine experience. Yes the Bungalows are simple but you dont come to Thailand to stay inside! The stars at night are beautiful, the food is the best I have tasted ever, prices are better then anywhere else.It being a restaurant far away from everything thats quite amazing! We traveled as a couple andawe are definitely coming back Could write more praise, but you get what I am saying. Just book it, email the owner and he will pick you up for free!

Patrick and his wife are adorable. He picked me up at Tong Sala to drive through the carzy roads and welcome me warmly.
The food is so deliciious.
Nothing wrong just perfect !

We had a GREAT time at Seaview on our trip in July. Patrick and his wife could not be more lovely and helpful. The bungalows are basic but exactly as described, and really good value. It's really remote and isolated but that's the point! Get away from the hordes of crazies! The restaurant was lovely, overlooking the amazing view, and the home cooked food was great.

We did the cooking course, highly recommended. Will hopefully come back one day! Good luck with the new arrival to the family :-)

Where should I start...just arrived in Ao Nang and having a bit of a culture shock after such a beautiful stay @ Seaview Bungalows run by Patrick & his lovely wife.
Expect basic bungalows, suberb views and service and a real jungle feeling, incl a pretty rough walk to one of the most beautiful and remote beaches ever...keep in mind that you're in the midst of nature and beauty with very few facilities and you ll have a great stay, I can assure you . Looking forward already to go back!

From the moment Patrick picked us up at the pier, we knew we were in good hands. He's chill, down to earth, helpful and fun. His wife is all of things, as well as an out of this world cook. My boyfriend (also a cook, and therefore very picky) and I spent our 1st 2 nights here, planning on venturing out to other areas of Koh Phangan. We spent the 3rd night somewhere else (more expensive and much less nice), and instantly decided to head back to SeaView. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Upon reading these reviews, I noticed the only people who had complaints about this place, are people who aren't up for being immersed in nature, without wifi and TV. That is exactly what I want on a vacation in Thailand, so if you do too, this is the place for you. The food here was the best of anywhere we ate in Thailand, including Bangkok. The hosts are incredible, we want them to be our friends! And the view from the bungalows as well as the dining deck are unbeatable. You do have to walk 5 minutes down a rugged path through the jungle to Thansadet beach, but it's good exercise and a beautiful journey. Also, Thansadet is the best laid back bohemian beach we saw on all of Koh Phangan. This is one of the last places you can go to escape the party animals. But if you want to party too, you can easily take a boat taxi to other parts of the island. In a nutshell, I can't wait to go back. This place is a gem, made extra special by the fantastic hospitality of the wonderful hosts.

We stayed here for 2 weeks. it was exactly what we needed to just get away from everything and chill out. Patrick picks you up from town when you arrive, they are welcoming and willing to help with whatever you need. It felt like being home staying with them. The food is delicious - and all home-cooked. The view from our bungalow was delightful. The bungalows are simple but good quality, not like some of the smaller flimsey bungalows on the island. The bathroom is simple and adequate.
Situated in nature this place was definately for us. We hope to be going back next year to teach some massage courses as it is ideal for this.
Very chilled and we met some lovely people during our stay here.
If there is a down side it is that it is not easy to get around from here although Patrick was really kind and took us into town with him when we wanted to go.
The walk down to the beach is about 5 minutes and takes about 3 days to get used to the climb back up again but is well worth it when you get this view; Thank you so much guys for our wonderful stay. I would definately recommend it to anyone who wants a more calm holiday.
