My wife and I spend 13 nights here, in one of the four bungalows. There are also 3 roundhouses, and four wooden shacks. The resort is but a stone's throw, literally, from the beach, and the restaurant looks out over the bay. Taxi drivers sometimes find difficulty in locating the place, but it is relatively easy - just follow the... More

we stayed here for 5 days in December. it was too long a stay, in that our bed was rather uncomfortable, and there was no air-conditioning. (I thought I had asked for air, but I guess not.) the shower was rather moldy in our little hut. and there is NO Wi-Fi, which I wanted, to contact my family for Christmas!... More

Cottage by the beach or view to the garden, very cozy and relaxing. Restaurant available on the spot plus few more in the immediate vicinity. 20 min ride from Puket airport, It was a very nice place to hop on for the first couple of days, recovering from the international flight.

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

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
