Naithon Beach House
Ranked #1 of 2 Nai Thon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Fortuitiously we chose to stay Naithon Beach House on our first vacation to Phuket. In fact, we enjoyed the staff, the food and the beach, that we stayed there again for our second vacation. There are only a limited number of rooms available. The rooms and furnishings are older but they were adequate and very clean.

The quality of the food was excellent (including the items we asked for that were not on the menu). The food and beverage service on the beach was similar to having your own private waiter on a beautiful beach just across the road. Another plus was having internet access and assistance will after midnight. All of the staff were willingly helpful and they genuinely cared for, and assisted all of the guests (not just us).

Even though it is not a 5 or 4 star, we recommend the Nathan Beach House for a laid back, safe, reasonably priced accommodation.

We will stay there on our next vacation to Phuket.

i have been to naithon beach three times now and i always stayed at the beach house.
it is always a pleasure to come back. rachael an her team / family are so nice and helpful.
if you need anything they'll try there best to please you. even if you want to make an elephant trekking or make a day trip to an island, rachael is going to book it for you.
last year my girlfriend had a bad stomach and her uncle seng took us to a hospital in phuket town in the middle of the night. i am still very thankful for that.

her father is running a small store which is much cheaper than the big one down the street.
the rooms are very spacious and get cleaned every day from the friendly staff. they are also changing the towls every day. in the price for the room is also a sun bed at the beach included which is very convenient.
the location is also very good. you just have to go across the street to get to the beach. at the beach they have a nice bar where you get ice cold draught beer. the food is also very delicious. i can recommend the chicken satey and the curry rice. but the thai curry is also very good.

i can't wait to come back to stay there

We returned for our 2nd time, what a welcome :0)

It's a family affair, and a great place for a relaxing break. Even our twin boys (5) know everyone at The Beach House by now - if you're looking for a simple, clean but gorgeous guest house with home cooked food, no TV and the best (ssshhhh secret) beach, you can't go wrong.

Expect: nice people, a/c, cold beer, a great beach (with a bar), internet access, clean rooms, a great time.
Don't expect: It's an all inclusive, commercial, club med resort (you have everywhere else)

See you soon x

Room Tip: There are only a few, just book early and ask for a nice one!

Hi I had a short 4 day break with my wife and we stayed in room 1 at the Naithon Beach House. It's our 4th visit there, and as before, we found the guesthouse simple, clean and friendly. Naithon is our favourite beach in Phuket and the guesthouse is literally 5 metres away, just across a relatively quiet road. The food is cooked fresh is delicious, and served on the beach...nothing better.The beer is cold and reasonably priced too. We recommend it for a short relaxing break, and will be back ourselves.

Room Tip: Only ever stayed in Room one...it's been fine 4 times

We stayed in room 4 which should be called "the dungeon" for 3 days and then thankfully got room 1 for our last night. Generally this B&B is run down, the service is rubbish, the management poor and the host mostly preoccupied with her obviously new mobile phone.

Room 4 was in a basement and was dark, smelly and depressing. You get half a roll of toilet paper a day, the sheets are a disgusting grey color with lots of old stains, the pillows are like sacks of straw, the mattress was rock hard, the towels were not changed whilst we were downstairs, the drains and toilet had a smell bad enough to make me retch and this did not improve when we went upstairs for the last night - if fact I think it was worse!

I was extremely disappointed and will never be back - this hotel almost spoiled my visit to Phuket and Thailand - the only redeaming feature was the quiet beach. We had problems with bills and charges changing, laundry took 3 days, staff staggered in sometime between 8.30 and 9AM and so no coffee or water in the room. I was even locked in one morning when I tried to escape "the dungeon" early and go for a walk. Just not good enough!. Do yourself a favour and avoid this place, there are plenty of small decent rooms available all up the front strip - do some research and don't settle for here

Room Tip: Room 1 is OK but....

1st time misled by TA reviewers.
So many people commented on how good the service was -Rachel was nice, but indifferent and mostly preoccupied on her mobile phone. Dad was friendly and chatty and a good driver. That’s all.
There are 4 rooms available. We tried 1,2 & 4. . Aircon worked well in all rooms, and all had fans.
We booked and paid 50% for our room 4-5 months in advance - and got the worst room in the house.
Room 4 (see photo) was in the basement, opposite the restaurant toilet, smelled terminally of a fishy sewer/drain and had a view blocked by a tarpaulin of the kitchen area out back. Linen and towels are all grey, have mysterious brown stains and have all seen better days. Toiletries -the thinnest smallest cake of soap I've ever seen in my life. Threw it out. Housekeeping = making the bed and sweeping the floor. Towels were never replaced and it was a constant effort to get fresh towels. No one seemed to care. When we asked for beach towels we were advised to use our bath towels.
Room 1 the ONLY room that faces west/the beach, is spacious, has a tiny balcony and is pretty good. Drains still stink. View of beach is through power lines. Pillows much better than those in Room 4.
Room 2 has twin beds, faces out back and is nothing special.
Security - Room keys are hung up on a board, on the way out of reception to rooms. These are available to anyone who chooses to take them, as reception is not always manned. 2 PC’s at reception and internet is A$5 per hour. Breakfast was included and was fresh if not scant. They do have an espresso machine which is excellent. We ate lunch at the restaurant every day as the food was really good and well priced. We would have spent more time at their beach bar, had the bar staff been more skilled and motivated towards service.
Note: There is no accommodation in Naithon actually ON the beach. All hotels are across the other side of the road. The North part of the beach is totally dominated by two huge 4 star resorts, Pearl of Naithon and Naithonburi. We didn't check these out as they had security and this whole end of the beach seemed to cater 100% to Russian families. The southern end is scattered with smaller hotels, restaurants, beach bars, villas, B&B's, massage shops and has a more international clientele notably elderly Germans. We did meet and speak with French, UK and Italian travellers though these were in the minority.
Overall, I loved Naithon Beach itself but couldn’t wait to leave Naithon Beach House. To me it seemed as though they are doing the absolute minimum and nothing more.

Room Tip: Room 1 or nothing.

This family became like our travel agent, hosts, chef, and they even took us on an overnight trip to their remote rubber plantation 90 min. north of Phuket. The jungle night walk was an extrordinary contrast to the pristine beach just across the street. Careful swimming in the off season!
