“Paradise with its own beach”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Stayed here last year and was surprised they didn't have a Tripadvisor entry. Glad to see people are finding it.
We stayed January and had a great time. The site has 7 bungalows which all have air con fridge and tv along with on suite etc.
The site is owned by a family and the sisters run it together with Dave who is married to Kung and spent there time between here and Canada. Can't think of a better place to get away from the the cold winters.
The bungalow was cleaned every day and we were able to hire motor bikes on the site. Much better than in town where we ended up paying for damage we never did..
There is a restaurant on site which cooks fantastic food and not just Thai but Italian a speciality.
The beach is across the road which is great with beds and kayaks to hire, and with an island just off shore a great thing to do.
We found out that there are also 2 family sized bungalows to rest one of which is Dave and Kungs place. Great for 3-5 people and great value.
We have already made plans for Dec 2013 and if we can we will stay in the large bungalow.
This place is a secret paradise in Phuket

Very surprised to find no reviews of this wonderful place....
The location is second to none if you want to be right on Yanui beach. This small but picture postcard lovely beach is right in the southwest corner of Phuket, nestled between 2 popular viewpoints and far from the madding crowd. If you are looking for nightlife and shops this is not the place for you, but if you want good quality accommodation , steps from the sand, a few restaurants and a restful atmosphere then this is the one!

Owned by local sisters, one is the charming and genuinely warm and welcoming Khun , who together with her husband David, an affable, amusing and really helpful Welshman, made our stay here an effortless pleasure. We were picked up from Rawai, given all the local information we needed, and generally treated like welcome guests not just customers.

Set in an attractive garden under high palms, The bungalows are large and attractive with all mod cons, Aircon, fan, tv, fridge, free wifi, coffee making facilities and plenty of electric sockets. They have multiple windows on 2 or 3 sides with privacy glass making them feel bright and airy. The decor is really tasteful, well furnished with full wardrobe and plenty of drawers. Quality cotton sheets and Thai silk bedcovers. Large shaded balcony with comfy chairs, a table and clothes horse. Khun and David have travelled extensively and it shows in their style and clever anticipation of their customers wants and needs. A lot of effort has gone in to this place and you get the feeling they love it as much as we do.

The on site restaurant is run by the adorable Noi, she worked in the big resorts before taking charge of this restaurant, she and her friendly team do a terrific job. Everything we had here was really good, the tempura prawns and the prawn fritters the best I ever had. If there's something you want that's not on the menu just ask, they will do an incredible seafood and fish barbecue with a little notice, she'll buy what you want from the local fish market at Rawai ( locals come here from far and wide for the fish market and fish restaurants ) and then barbecue it for you. Nice cocktails too.

One of the best massages I've ever had was by a local lady organised by Khun, she comes to the bungalows so you can have your massage in the cool comfort and privacy of your own room. Seaview also rent scooters, arrange airport transfers, and there's a laundry just up the road.

The location, the quality of the accommodation , the warm welcome from the helpful hosts, great restaurant and beach on your doorstep make this place quite unique in the area. Forgot to mention you can hire snorkeling gear, canoes and even a small boat on the beach. Another real plus ...... No Hawkers!

We will be back for sure, this is the only place in south Phuket I would want to revisit. Thank you Khun and David and please never sell your corner of paradise to the greedy developers.
Book this place and you will not be disappointed, I doubt you will find the same in terms of location and quality accommodation anywhere in south Phuket!

The Yanui Seaview is located across from Ya Nui beach (50 metres and your feet are in the water) with the beach framed in a small picturesque cove between two hills, each having viewpoints popular in the evenings for watching the sunsets

There are seven bungalows (a mixture of detached / semi-detached) these sit in informal well kept grounds with good access and have shaded balconies with comfortable chairs. All are modern and are built and equipped to a high standard and tastefully decorated (quiet aircon and fan plus comfortable beds deserve special mention) this and the location make these maybe the best I've seen within this price band

Khun and Dave who own the Seaview were both incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our stay, we were met on our arrival in Rawai and driven to Yanui and were given lots of useful background information about the area (Thai massage, scooter hire, lifts and transfers etc can all be arranged through Khun)

Restaurant info... We only ever got past the the aptly named "One More Restaurant" once, this is located at the entrance to the Seaview this offers a friendly atmosphere and great great food... best shrimp cake and tempura tiger prawns ever!

Beach info... The beach is quite small and while it does get busy at weekends was never overcrowded (care needs to be taken on entry / exit in some parts due to submerged rocks and coral)

On a personal note... Dave collects antique and vintage jokes and anecdotes... please feel free to take along and swap / compare your old favourites "get in his good books and you may be offered cake" (cheers, all the best Dave)
