We're a family of 6 traveling and the innkeeper/chef Weera is truly a one-man show. Place is bare bones but the food is pretty amazing, authentic! Veera even offered to drive us to our steep hill lodging. He is funny and a character. Nice guy. Anyone looking for some good Thai food, do check him out👍

We didn't stay at the Thai Elephant but came here for lunch based on another review we had read. We were happy we read that review! Prices were very reasonable, the cheapest meal we have had yet, but the best one so far. Chicken Satay, spring rolls, tom yum soup, spicy beef salad, and pad Thai were all flavorful and...

Very friendly and helpful. Cheep beer. Very clean. Had excellent Thai noodle dishes and soup. Good price and easy to find. Better food than any other places in the area. Wish we had time to eat here again.

What you see is what you get with the addition of a very nice person who is always smiling, in a good mood and ready to help. It's clean and comfortable. The beach is really close (not more than 5min of slow walking). I would recommend this place to everyone.

Stayed here on our honeymoon. Great spot, a short 5 minute walk from the beach. The family that runs this place is super friendly and accommodating. They are always there to help out or cook a quick meal or serve a nice cocktail. The room is clean, toilet, shower, large bed and nice cold A/C. Thanks again for welcoming us!

This is very basic accommodation, so don't expect too much. However, the room was clean (AC blew cold and there was a lock box), food in the restaurant was good, and hospitality was just great. The place is convenient to food and drink, and is a stone throw away from the beach. Great value for the price, highly recommend to...

Stayed here for just under 3 weeks. I must say the rooms are better, cleaner, more modern than the 4 star Andaman Seaview resort my parents stayed at for over 4 times the price. The staff cannot do enough to make stay relaxing and also provide 2 bottles of drinking water free of charge every day. Safe, fridge and air...
