Seaside Cottages

Great location next to a near-empty, tranquil beach lined with coconut palms. Excellent place to go to escape from the touristy areas like Pa tong. The cottages are run by an Englishman who was very helpful with advice for my first ever stay in Thailand.

No nightclubs, girlie bars, annoying touts, shopping malls, western supermarkets, beach vendors or plastic sunbeds & umbrellas here, just Phuket the way it used to be before the greedy developers arrived to destroy much of this most beautiful island.

Great location next to a near-empty, tranquil beach lined with coconut palms. Excellent place to go to escape from the touristy areas like Pa tong. The cottages are run by an Englishman who was very helpful with advice for my first ever stay in Thailand. The food and drink at the restaurant was very good and good value for money. I would definitely consider returning.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Seaside cottages is somewhat out of the way but this is no disadvantage. It is the place to come to for a taste of how things used to be before the other beaches in Phuket were turned into towns and taken over by big resorts and corporations. The huts are basic but perfect for a laid back holiday where the choices are limited to: sleeping, eating, drinking, reading and wandering up and down the beach. In other words, come here to get away from it all ... Do you need Internet and TV. Of course not! This is place for you. In addition the restaurant is also excellent and good value.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Seaside cottages is the perfect backpacker retreat. Its a hidden gem that many travellers miss when visiting Phuket.

Dont be dismayed by the taxi drive in. The dirt road is worth the initial anxiety because when you arrive it is a beautiful oasis right on a quiet beach.

Mal and his team are friendly, informative and willing to assist with your every need. Hammocks, beach chairs and a great bar are what you'll find. The food is delicious and reasonably priced.

The cottages are bare but its everything you will need. If your looking for a tv and aircon this is not for you. If you are looking for a rustic, romantic thai experience then look no further.

for us, it was a great start to a great trip!

Mai Khao beach is about 40mins or so from phuket so dont expect to be in the heart of things but it is definitely worth the bus trip!!
