“Fantastic start to a holiday a great place to unwind”

Excellent rustic type huts with comfy mattress and mosquito nets. Also the round cottages with private bathroom were great for a more hotel style feel. Food is so fresh and tasty really some of the best on our trip. Staff lovely. Beautiful setting in own grounds and what feels like a private beach. No wifi but this helps you shut off from the world and relax. Thanks so much Mal and staff.

We loved this place - one of the best places we stayed at on our trip... wonderful location (quiet, beautiful and not built up - yet), great staff and the best food we've ever had!
Definitely print the Thai instructions from their website if you're getting a taxi from the airport as it can be hard to find. The beach huts are basic but all you need - and even provide bedding and towels. The bathrooms are new and very clean.
Great music played in the background at the restaurant - right up our street! The food was amazing and nothing else is quite good enough after that! Try the Thai breakfast - its fantastic!
Thanks for having us and I really hope the beach stays as it is - no more big developments like the Holiday Inn please!

I was a bit skeptical when we arrived as there was nothing around but then realised exactly there is nothing to do but relax and meet people. We soon met people who had been there a while and those who had just arrived, its a perfect place to meet the widest variety of people with similar ideas about independant travel. we left to go to a different beach and soon came back as it didnt come close to this one. had many a late night with mad dreams thanks to the beer and malcom. highly recommend and cant wait to go back.

My husband and I are staying at the renaissance resort and wanted to get away from "resort" life for dinner and eat authentic, local food. After doing some research, I found seaside. It was only a 15 min walk down the beach from our hotel. This place was EXACTLY what we were hoping for. Authentic, local, homemade food. The prices were great and the food was delicious!!! We had a great experience!

We stayed here for 5 nights and after some difficulty tracking down the hotel - which is really off the beaten track (we got the bus from Hat Yai to junction 37 and walked but were luckey to get a lift to the hotel after around 20 minutes walking - I wuld guess it takes about an hour to walk here from the main road - so book a taxi! We booked the beach huts although strangely there arent on the beach anymore than the cheaper bamboo hunts. A basic small room with matress on the floor with one power socket and fan. The beach is nice enough although quite steeply shelving and at times the sea was too rough to enter (red flags were out the whol time we stayed although the sea was for the most part fine for swimming - although Id certainly be weary of kids swimming). The food in the restaurant was lovely and authentic thai and overall a good budget option in a remote location

Room Tip: If your going for cheap go for the bamboo room - theyre about the same side and actually closer toth...

Stayed in a round cottage for two nights at the end of November. Perfect location, friendly staff, and exactly as advertised on their website. No surprises. Easy taxi ride into Nai Yang for some diving. Otherwise, perfectly tempting to just stay around the beach and do nothing. I'd definitely stay again.

I have to say, I was concerned when my husband picked this place. I don't usually do beach huts or shared bathrooms...but after one night I was totally convinced. This place is awesome. Yes, the huts are tiny (only large enough for a mattress on the floor), but the mattress is comfy, it's clean, no bugs, and after one night you find yourself wondering why people even want enormous rooms! The shared bathrooms are new and spotless. The food in the restaurant is fantastic, and you'll notice people from the expensive resorts nearby walking over to chow down as well! But by far the best part is you have this glorious untouched beach all to yourself. Truly a paradise!

Be sure to use the Thai directions the owner has on the website - they are a lifesaver as NO ONE has ever heard of this place and can barely find it even with the directions!
